Abstract: We define a broad class of crossed product C*-algebras of the form $ C(\tilde{G})\rtimes G$, where $ G$ is a discrete countable amenable residually finite group, and $ \tilde{G}$ is a profinite completion of $ G$. We show that they are unital separable simple nuclear quasidiagonal C*-algebras, of real rank zero, stable rank one, with comparability of projections and with a unique trace.
