DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Coinfaucets: The Ultimate Bitcoin Faucet Rotator and Timer

Introduction

When it comes to getting started with Bitcoins, one of the first things people want to do is get some coins so they can learn how the system works. After all, we can read about it all day long but until you have actually received and sent some transfers, it can be a bit confusing. One way to get a head start, without even having to spend a cent, is to hit up Bitcoin faucets (these are available for other coins as well, although they are much more rare; as such, Bitcoin faucets are what we are going to be focusing on through this article).

What are Faucets?

Faucets are websites that are designed to give out small amounts of Bitcoins (usually in the form of satoshis or uBTC – micro Bitcoins) in return for visiting them and entering your Bitcoin address. Most also require you to fill in a captcha to get your reward, but that is more to keep out the bots and automated systems that would otherwise be plaguing the system if they were to not implement that type of protection. While they can be a little annoying to fill out at times, they are pretty quick and if you are knocking out many faucets at once you can skip through them pretty easily.

How Do Faucets Get Money?

It makes sense that if Bitcoins have value that the sites that give them away need to be getting money from somewhere, right? Well, there are actually a few different ways people fund their faucets:

  • Advertisements on the page
  • Donations (most faucets have a specific donation address where all of the proceeds go right back in to the faucet to give away again)
  • Personal contribution

While the advertisements make sense, as they directly generate money, you may be questioning why people would donate to the faucet and why the owner would make their own personal contribution. Both of these are really related to the same thing: it is the community.

What Do You Mean By “it is the Community?”

This is likely your next question, and it is probably one of the hardest things to really put in to words. Bitcoins are a lot more than just a way to make money; they are the fosters of an entire community of people based on personal vision. Rather than looking at the system as being all about being able to get free money off nothing or transfer money to others, it is important to look at all of the doors it opens that otherwise would just not be possible. For example, Bitcoins open the way for very small transactions (even fractions of a cent), whereas any other method would result in fees that alone would cost more than the transfer. They allow for people to instantly send funds anywhere in the world, regardless of either party's location, just through the Internet. There is no need to head to a bank first. There is no requirement of getting someone's information; all you need is their Bitcoin address and it is done.

Because of the vision and the desire to make it all successful, many (dare I say the majority?) people are willing to sacrifice some of their own finances (in the form of Bitcoins) in order to help others get involved. This is really a two sided deal, though. On one hand, they are giving away some free money to people, but on the other hand everyone benefits. The more people that get involved with the Bitcoin ecosystem, the more the community grows and the more successful the project as a whole becomes. It is arguably small things like giving away free coins that get others involved, and therefore everyone's value starts to increase as a result. So while giving away the money is usually done in a selfless manner, that does not mean it does not benefit the givers as well; it does. But this is just another thing that makes Bitcoin so special; the fact that people are willing to do things like this is a huge show of character, and we see it so often in the Bitcoin community that it can really bring a lot of joy to your face.

How Many Faucets Are There?

The number of Bitcoin faucets is growing all the time. It is pretty much impossible to keep up with every one of them because the dynamics are constantly evolving. For example, we could take a listing of Bitcoin faucets right now and by tomorrow the situation of each could be any of the following:

  • Working as intended
  • Bugged and not working
  • Bugged and not paying properly
  • Shut down due to running out of funds
  • Shut down due to being hacked
  • Offline due to other reasons

Each of these can hit a faucet at any time, due to the sheer nature of how they work. As a result, keeping up with all of them and what their status is can be a major hassle. After all, with each faucet comes a new URL you have to remember and then you have to organize them based on their status. Considering there are probably a hundred or more faucets known about right now (including those that are shut down, broken or otherwise out of commission), that is a ton of work. And this is where CoinFaucets comes in.

What Does CoinFaucets Do?

CoinFaucets is a Bitcoin faucet timer and rotator. It takes all the hard work out of visiting the faucets, while allowing you to maximize your income from them. Through the site there is a database of sites, as well as their cooldowns (how often you are able to visit and get more rewards). From here, you can skip from site to site quickly without having to remember anything: the addresses are already stored in the site and the timers are as well. The only thing you will need is your Bitcoin address, but that is also able to be stored in the website.

From the main page, you can either just hit “Next” at the top to go to the first faucet or you can enter your address first. Entering your address does just one thing: it stores it so you can easily copy and paste it in to the faucets on future visits. Because of this, you do not even have to store your Bitcoin address in a text file or copy it from your client. As long as you input it on CoinFaucets, this will always be stored!

As of right now, CoinFaucets has around 45 websites in its rotation. Each of these sites has been proven time and time again to be working and paying. If at any time a site goes offline for more than just one round, you can report it and it will be evaluated for potential deactivation. If you were running your own links and going from site to site on your own, you would manually have to check every site. With CoinFaucets, you also benefit from what others find; as sites turn out to be problematic, they are removed from the rotation. As new sites pop up that are proven to be working, they are added in to the rotation. This means you can use CoinFaucets as your sole source for Bitcoin faucets, and gain the maximum benefits in the minimum amount of time!

What Sets CoinFaucets Apart From Other Rotators?

There are actually a couple things that help set CoinFaucets apart from others that may be working on similar systems:

  • The site is constantly monitored
  • If people make reports about a site being offline, it is evaluated
  • If there are bugs reported (whether they are visual or functional) they are fixed as soon as possible
  • As suggestions are made, they are evaluated for feasibility and go in to a queue for addition

All of these things help make CoinFaucets the best faucet rotator out there, and the only source you need!

What About Other Coins?

There are actually adaptations of the system for other coins already, although they are not public yet. This is because when there are only one or two faucets, it is just not as beneficial to use a rotator. The rotator helps for when there are multiple, as then you just need a single link and you are good to go. Rest assured, however, that other coins are most definitely monitored as well, and as soon as some of the coins get enough faucets to make a rotator beneficial they will go public.

How Can I Help Support CoinFaucets?

There are a few different ways you can help support CoinFaucets:

  • Create ad campaigns on the site (email coinfaucets@gmail.com for more information)
  • Share the link and knowledge of CoinFaucets with others
  • Help monitor the different faucets and send in notices when sites are down or you feel that some should be added to the list

Each of these is very beneficial to the site, and they go a long way towards helping ensure that everyone has the best possible experience with it that they can.
