General Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between NOIR and other privacy coins?

NOIR and Zcoin: Noir is a fork from the very early stages of Zcoin. Noir started at block 0, there was no coin transfer whatsoever, no ICO and no premine. Noir runs under the lyra2z330 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 (to be implemented in a future wallet upgrade). With Noir, the decisions are not made by a small group of developers, but by the real Noir owners: its community.

What is the total supply, block time and block reward?

The total supply of Noir is 21 million. The actual block reward is 4.375 Noir per block (for miners) and 8.125 Noir (for Noirnodes), each block takes around 2.5 minutes to mature and every 210.000 blocks a halving will occur.

Can I mine Noir with my personal computer and how many coins will I get?

Yes. Noir runs under the lyra2z330 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.

What is a Masternode/Noirnode and how do I get one?

Noirnode is the term used for Noir masternodes. 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 Noirnode, you must have dedication, support, specific hardware, and lock up 25,000 Noir as voted on by the community.
