Dear Zoin Community,
In the last weeks, you have decided that Zoin needs a rebrand. Before we introduce Noir – the rebranded version of Zoin – to you, let’s have a look at the process we have gone through:
On the 3rd of September, we asked you whether we should rebrand. A total of 157 people voted. 121 of them voted for “Yes” – only 36 for “No”.
On the 20th of September the final vote regarding the name for the rebrand of Zoin was finished. This final vote (between “Osiris” and “Noir”) was ended at 12 pm GMT+1, with a total of 168 votes. The winner of the vote – Noir – recieved 101 votes, while Osiris recieved 67 votes. This final vote was the follow-up of two votes, each containing 9 possible names.
After this vote, we launched a logo contest in which the community made and suggested several logos, of which we chose the best to compete in another vote, containing a total of 9 logos. Option “F” won with 70 votes (out of 200) total.
After this vote, the creator of the winning vote – @malt1, who we were able to persuade to join our team as Arts and Graphics designer – retouched the logo again, to create the new logo of Noir:
After all of these important things were decided by you, our community, we got to work on rebranding everything.
As of today, Zoin (ZOI) will change its name to Noir (NOR). Its official logo will be the one above.
We have already received confirmation from several exchanges that they will update Zoin to Noir in the coming days, and we will of course keep you updated about this progress.
If you still see websites listing “Zoin” instead of “Noir” after about a week, please let us know so we can provide that website with the info that we rebranded.
We are also very happy to announce, that we will release the rebranded Noir wallet (including the Zerocoin fix) in about a week. We will release a guide on how to update safely at the same time.
You will have one week to update your wallet after the release, before all old wallets get shut out of the network. The Zerocoin functionality will be enabled at block 359000.
