Noir is a decentralized digital currency created to ensure your transactions are secure, private, and untraceable. Our technology is based on the Sigma Protocol which provides you complete anonymity over your funds.
Noir is a decentralized digital currency with anonymous features and community governance. To ensure accessibility to all users, Noir uses a CPU only mining algorithm. Noir is developing into a currency that is not only traded for speculative reasons, but also one that enables people to buy products and services in a secure and anonymous way. The overall goal is to shape Noir into a currency for one’s daily payments.
Noir has no max supply and a constant 2% annual inflation. Thus, anyone in the world can benefit from an untraceable coin. Not just a certain number of people. The actual block reward is 2.2 Noir per block. With the block 480000 the reward was splitt to 0.66 for miners and 1.1 Noir for Masternodes and 0.44 for a dev fund. Each block takes around 2.5 minutes to mature. Noir has no block halving.

Frequently asked questions
Noir and Zcoin:
Noir is a fork from the very early stages of Zcoin. Noir started at block 0 (under the name of Zoin), there was no coin transfer whatsoever, no ICO and no premine. Noir runs under the lyra2zoin algorithm. The only thing Noir and Zcoin have in common is the Sigma protocol for anonymous transactions.
Compared to other privacy coins:
Noir is a real community coin, it is completely decentralized and managed by a voting system. With Noir, the decisions are not made by a small group of developers, but by the real Noir owners: its community.
Noir have no max supply. Thus, anyone in the world can benefit from an untracable coin and not just a certain number of people. The actual block reward is 2.2 Noir per block. With the block 480000 the reward was splitt to 0.66 for miners and 1.1 Noir for Masternodes and 0.44 for a dev fund. Each block takes around 2.5 minutes to mature. Noir has no block halving.
Yes. Noir runs under the lyra2zoin algorithm which makes only CPU mining possible. As a community coin, we believe that Noir should be mined by everyone under the same conditions, that’s why our algorithm does not allow the use of high end and usually overpriced GPUs mining rigs. The number of coins you will receive for mining; depends on the number of resources you are putting into our pool. This is measured as hash rate, your hash rate will be measured as a percentage of the total hash rate in the pool and you will receive the same percentage of a block reward, every time a block is found.
The best way to know exactly how many coins will you mine is by trying, we encourage you to start mining right away and to join the great Noir community.
Masternodes are computers that run a wallet and help secure the network by completing special tasks on the blockchain and ensuring quick transactions. To set up a Masternode, you must have dedication, support, specific hardware, and lock up 25,000 Noir as voted on by the community.
