Noir

Community built, privacy driven.

 

Noir is a decentralized digital cryptocurrency created to ensure your transactions are secure, private, and untraceable. Technology is based on the Zerocoin Protocol which provides you complete anonymity over your funds. Noir is a rebrand of Zoin.

Zerocoin is a project to fix a major weakness in Bitcoin: the lack of privacy. Project’s goal is to build a cryptocurrency where your neighbors, friends, and enemies can’t see what you bought or for how much. A collaboration between the original Zerocoin project members and cryptographers at MIT, The Technion, and Tel Aviv University have produced a far more efficient protocol that allows for direct private payments to other users.

 

Governed by Community

NOIR in comparison to many other coins is completely governed by the community and belongs to everyone who wants to participate in shaping its future. The reason why NOIR has become a community-governed cryptocurrency is ingrained in its history.

It was the community who decided to take over the project after it was abandoned by the original dev(s). Today, the Noir Team consists of volunteers from the community who offered their time, knowledge, experience, and dedication to the development of NOIR. In the near future, major decisions will be made by the community as a whole. This will be done through voting, which will be integrated in the official wallets.

The Noir Team will release a financial report at the end of every month. It will offer updates and information on:
• The current balance of the development fund in NOR & BTC
• Cost of current and past projects
• Information on how to donate NOR & BTC

The goal is to turn NOIR into a currency for daily payments. A coin that is not only traded for speculative reasons but a currency that enables people to buy products and services in a secure and untraceable way. One of the main goals is therefore to develop a wallet that integrates markets, users democracy, exchanges, communities and security for both buyer and seller.

 

Project plans for the next few years the following activities:

  • Mobile wallets on iOS and Android
  • Add Noir to more Exchanges
  • Add Real-World Usescases
  • Get Noir into an Existing Crypto CreditCard
  • Community voting build right into the wallet
  • Shared Masternodes Service

Development Reward Fund

It was voted on by 95% of the community, has been instated and initiate at block 230250 until block 255250 increasing block rewards to 50 and allocation 37.5 Noir per block to the fund. This will not affect miner rewards, once block 255250 is reached, block rewards will go back to 12.5.

How Zerocoin works

With the new Zerocoin protocol, Zerocoin allows direct anonymous payments between parties. Zerocoin transactions exist alongside the (non-anonymous) normal transactions. Each user can convert non-anonymous coins into anonymous coins, which project calls Noir-Zerocoins. Users can then send Noir-Zerocoins to other users, and split or merge Noir-Zerocoins they own in any way that preserves the total value. Users can also convert Noir-Zerocoins back into normal Noir, though in principle this is not necessary: all transactions can be made in terms of Noir-Zerocoins.
