Noir is a rebrand of Zoin.
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.

Frequently asked questions
Noir and Zcoin:
Noir (formerly Zoin) 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 and the reward to developers was completely removed. The only thing Noir and Zcoin have in common is the Zerocoin 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.
The total supply of Noir is 21 million. The actual block reward is 4.375 Zoin per block (for miners) and 8.12 Noir (for Masternodes), each block takes around 2.5 minutes to mature and every 210.000 blocks a halving will occur.
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.
A setup guide can be found here.
