Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Zoin and other privacy coins?

Zoin and Zcoin:
Zoin is a fork from the very early stages of Zcoin. Zoin started at block 0, there was no coin transfer whatsoever, no ICO and no premine. Zoin runs under the lyra2zoin algorithm and the reward to developers was completely removed. The only thing Zoin and Zcoin have in common is the Zerocoin protocol for anonymous transactions.

Compared to other privacy coins:
Zoin is a real community coin, it is completely decentralized and managed by a 1:1 voting system (implemented in a future wallet upgrade). With Zoin, the decisions are not made by a small group of developers, but by the real Zoin owners: its community.

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

Zoin current supply is around 16 Million and total supply is 21 million. Actual block reward is 12.5 Zoin per block, each block takes around 2.5 minutes to mature and every 210.000 blocks a halving will occur. The next halving will take place at block 410.000 when the block reward will go from 12.5 to 6 Zoin per block.

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

Yes. Zoin runs under the lyra2zoin algorithm which makes only CPU mining possible. As a community coin, we believe that Zoin 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 Zoin community.

What is a masternode and how do I get one?

Masternodes are computers that run with a specific number of Zoin in it stashed. These computers help to confirm network transactions and gain a percentage of the block reward. To own a masternode you need to buy or mine around 25000 Zoins, this number is not definitive because it will be decided by the community by voting after an internal discussion.

How do I mine Zoin?

In order to mine Zoin, please register in our official pool in zoin.netabuse.net and check our starter instructions under Resources > Getting started. If you have any doubt you can join our Discord and we will happily guide you through.

Mining pools

Can’t wait to start mining some Zoin? Simply register on one of the mining pools below and you will find all further information there.

Zoin is a coin only mined via CPU, so anybody can use their standard PC to mine Zoin and it stays accessible for everyone. Zoin uses the Lyra2 Proof of Work (POW) algorithm, which is not compatible with any kind of GPU or ASIC.

Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
