dimecoin is a straight Quark clone, although there have been no "official" updates for some time. It is bitcoin 8.2, althoughh some unofficial wallets have been made and upgraded.

  • The infamous Dime Dev

    The developer smashed 8% premine, which by today's standards is actually low.

  • Where to trade dimecoin

    After Cryptsy closed, Cryptopia has become the main exchange. It trades against litecoin (plus some minor coins like dogecoin).
