About FIRO

FIRO, formerly known as Zcoin, is a cryptocurrency focusing on providing privacy, anonymity and fungibility to its users. It was launched in 2016 by a team led by Poramin Insom and operates on its own blockchain. Firo uses the zerocoin protocol which allows its users to convert FIRO coins into zerocoins. This involves burning the original coins and creating new ones, making it difficult to trace transactions and link them to specific addresses.

We don't currently offer FIRO as a payment method at Alternative Airlines. You can use alternative cryptocurrencies instead to help you securely pay for your flights on our site.

Why use FIRO to buy flights?

Enhanced privacy

FIRO is designed to offer strong privacy features. Users can make transactions with a higher level of anonymity. This is done through the zerocoin protocol and zero-knowledge proofs. FIRO helps to obfuscate transaction details, making it hard to trace and link transactions to specific individuals. Ultimately, your financial information is protected and confidentiality is maintained.


Firo heavily emphasises fungibility - this means all coins are considered equal and interchangeable. FIRO implements privacy features that break transaction history, making it impossible to discriminate between coins based on their past usage. This ensures that every Firo coin holds the same value, making it more widely accepted and usable for purchasing goods.


Similar to other cryptocurrencies, FIRO employs strong cryptographic techniques and a decentralised blockchain to ensure secure transactions. Transactions are processed and verified in a secure and reliable manner.
