    Ozcoin is still going strong, had a few weeks at 2nd biggest pool, currently 5th biggest in the world
    Still the only Australian owned and run pool and the only pool with a mining server in Australia. We also have a good relationship with ckolivas another Aussie and author of cgminer the best mining software available :)

    At the end of 2011 we emailed all users to say we were closing the proportional pool and to make new accounts on the new DGM website opened on 30 Dec 2011.
    We kept the old website up for users to be able to withdraw funds but in Feb or March 2012 we were badly hacked lost almost 900BTC and the database for the old site was irretrievably corrupted which left us unable to bring the old site up.
    We learnt a lot fronm that experience :/

    On another note a few Perth Bitcoiners are getting together Sunday morn, anyone that would like to come along is welcome, I'll have a few Bitcoin bumperstickers and badges to give away :)

    P.S. Ozcoin also opened one of the first Litecoin pools :)

    Can someone explain to me the differences between Litecoins and Bitcoins?

    Doesn't a currency need to have a large user base before it becomes viable? Like miners are not users as such, I mean people doing real world commerce in the currency not just exchanging and speculating.

    Whose to say you can't have two p2p/online currencies (or more)? I think its a good idea.

    How do people secure/backup and use their bitcoin folders, so you can seamlessly open wallets between computers? Do you create a trucrypt container and put it on dropbox (e.g. C:\Users\name\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin or other)?

    My bitcoin folder is over 7.5GB! Fucking blockchain is getting huge.

    I posted it in the investment thread. ^^^

    I put in 3.xx bitcoins into ltc, which was only rounding off my mtgox account, about $300 worth, nearly 2 weeks ago as a laugh and to try out other exchanges. Only days later this thing takes off and it is sitting on $2k now :shock:

    Can we move all litecoin discussion to another thread.

    It's different enough I believe it should be discussed separately.

    No problems, they are kinda related in a basic technical way at least, but are different economies.

    I bought $300 worth a few weeks ago for shits and giggles, already made money on it including conversion and bank fees.

    So what's a good thin client wallet software (for Windows) that doesn't download the big ass block chain of +7.5gb?

    Wow you need the entire block chain? There isn't some online cloud way of accessing it?
