I just downloaded the ixcoin client out of sheer curiosity... without reading about what it was.

My impression after mining for less than a day is that it is a bitcoin simulator.  It simulates what it would have been like to be a bitcoin early adoptor, mining 40+ coins in less than a 24 hour period.

Only downside is there's no payout system!  But, it's there if you feel like day dreaming and wishing you could turn back time.

Oh wow their wiki is literally a copypasta of the bitcoin wiki.

Curiously though, according to the exchange rate you made 0.04144 btc. is that how many you would have made if you directly mined bitcoin? if not then how many would you have gotten?

I do think it makes for a great test net, and to have seen and learned more about bitcoin that I had missed with the main client.   Not sure what you mean by no payout system though?    I made a lot more BTC mining IXC and selling them then I usually do from a month a mining btc directly already.

Don't forget to factor in all the hacking losses of bitcoins due to you downloading and running random programs from the internet.
