How to mine Firo

    Firo (FIRO) is highly ASIC-resistant and offers strong security against malware. The project’s ultimate goal is to achieve what is called “equivalent calculation” to make the distribution of power more balanced. Firo was known as Zcoin until its rebranding on November 30, 2020.

    Firo is a privacy-focused coin, with many features that allow for the redeeming of coins with no transaction history, breaking the links between addresses and making transaction graph analysis very difficult.

    Firo’s mining algorithm is FiroPoW, its DAG file size after the hard fork on 2021-10-26 has been growing from slightly over 4 GB with an 8 MB rate of increase every 1300 blocks (~4.5 days).

    More privacy features have been implemented with Lelantus, which prompts users to anonymize their funds and uses “on-by-default” privacy to ensure that transactions sent by official Firo wallets stay private.

    Feel free to check out the official website and block explorers to get more familiar with Firo before continuing. You can also find a summary of Firo metrics and other resources on our Firo page.
