I decided to create this site to Help other Australians to get into Mining and hopefully an investment for us, this has been my Hobby since early 2013 so I decided to share my experience and allow you guys to do the same and offer a safer place to do your equipment trades, it will not be easy so if you think its a get rich quick scheme then it’s not for you, I am looking for Ethical people who want to be part of this site, if your interested please let me know.
Due to the high amount of scammers and shonky dealings that I have experienced while I was testing and researching into Bitcoins/Mining, I created this site to help clear some myths and offer a place for Miners to Trade and help each other as well as Gamers, we have a Team Speak server gameplay and direct contact for support, check the Forum for the instructions and look for “OzDigger“,
There are many warnings online, just search bitcoin scam or scammers and also exchanges, Please make sure you know who you are dealing with and don’t do business on their terms unless it is fully traceable even then it does not mean you will get your money back, you can confirm who you are dealing with and not believe what they tell you! if it’s too good to be true then it most likely is not! the scammers are Very good!

on Antminers there is a file where you can see the history! if you feel anyone is acting illegally please report them to stop others from being caught out, The ant miners I received were sold as new to me but were certainly second hand as they even left their mining pools in them all, My advice with ant miners is buy from Australia and buy used ones unless you know they are legally imported and tested as mine turned up warped from the freight, I was surprised it still worked! also, you need to tighten all the heat sink screws! and recheck every week or two, heat = expansion, etc, do not over tighten, also be careful with the heat sink paste as I have not seen any safety specs on what’s in it! some are very toxic.
I have decided to keep my site dedicated to helping Australian miners, you will find this site, and any sales will and do comply with Australian law, This is my Hobby and I am only offering a platform for Australians to get into mining, I take no liability or responsibility for any third party that has listings on this site, they must be clear about the site’s policy, all IP’s are monitored, please report any issues directly to me.
Bitcoins are traceable so don’t believe they are not! there are many false perceptions out there and I will help correct those, the ATO is also aware so make sure you keep all receipts and records to ensure you comply with Australian laws, these are still not fully known and you would have to invest a lot of money to reap profitable returns, you may need to declare your coin values as I believe its deemed as the same as investing in the stock market, please check with your accountant or the Australian Taxation Office to ensure you don’t make a mistake.
