1  Economy / Micro Earnings / Testnet Faucet+Dice on: February 08, 2021, 02:03:09 AM
Re-hashing an old idea ( but as a testnet faucet this time.

Currently just hosted on a private server for now, no domain (yet). We'll see how it goes.

- Testnet Faucet, you get 10,000 testnet sats every 30 minutes
- Cash out immediately or Play the dice game to increase the amount of testnet coins you receive
- Reminder: Testnet coins have no value

Let me know what you think of the idea. Adds a little fun for devs when they get testnet coins, and there's always someone who wants "a lot" of testnet coins and they can try their luck here (2% house edge).

2  Bitcoin / Project Development / Mnemonic Slots on: January 25, 2021, 05:11:46 AM
So I was thinking...

Mnemonic Slots

Imagine a giant slot machine with 12 reels and each reel has 2048 BIP39 mnemonic words. Each time you spin you generate a new mnemonic phrase. The resulting first address generated from the mnemonic is checked for a balance or activity. If you "find" a balance you "win".

Kinda along the lines of but different.

3  Bitcoin / Project Development / Multisig Paper Wallet on: February 27, 2020, 03:01:19 AM
Recently I've been working on a multisig paper wallet using the bitcoinjs library.

With any bitcoin wallet, the most important part is the safety of user's funds. Part of the design process included what user input can be provided, and how much information to provide back to the user. The more steps or parts to the process opens up the user to more chances to make mistakes.

The current layout I have is:

 - User provides an input for m and n for the m-of-n (ie 2 of 3, 3 of 5, etc)
 - CSPRNG provided by bitcoinjs-lib creates n key pairs, and those public keys are used to create the multisig P2SH address.
 - Output to user is the P2SH address on the left-hand side, and on the right-hand side the first private key out of n keys.
 - The additional private keys can be cycled through using the arrow buttons above the private key QR code
 - Additional output to the user includes the public keys (and qr codes) and the sequence they were used to create the address and redeem script.
 - User can save redeem script hex to a USB drive, OR if they want to stay true to paper wallet regenerate the redeem script using the public key qr codes along with the `redeem-script.html` tool which can scan your public key qr codes with your webcam. Typing in by hand I suppose is a possible third option, but not likely or recommended considering the redeem script can be quite long.

To make the paper wallet more like a wallet, I have also added some additional standalone pages (tools) that will allow users to find UTXOs for specific addresses to build and sign transactions.

 - Users build transactions with UTXO selection using the `multisig-build.html` tool. (internet needed to fetch UTXOs)
 - Users sign transactions offline using the `multisig-sign.html` tool
 - Users are responsible for broadcasting the raw hex transactions

Drawbacks I am noticing:
 - building a transaction might be too advanced for some users
 - fees should be satoshis per byte like instead of inputting exact fee in satoshis
 - users cant create an address from their own provided public keys (yet, will add in the future)
 - you tell me, what do you all think?

Here's the github repo:
and the domain I'm using:

It currently supports both testnet and mainnet. I recommend users stick with testnet unless they really know what they are doing.

Some nuances with creating a multisig wallet is there are multiple ways it could be implemented, whereas a standard single key address is just a private key and address. One of the challenges is the redeem script can be too long for a QR code. I was thinking maybe multiple QR codes, but that got ugly quick, so instead I went with displaying the public keys QR codes and printed out the redeem script, giving users multiple options.  This is the way I have decided to go, at least for a first attempt. Looking for thoughts, input, etc from others.

8  Bitcoin / Project Development / BOOK: A Beginner's Guide To Bitcoin Focused Web Development on: July 23, 2016, 03:50:25 PM
Greetings All,
  For the past year I have been working on a book that aims to fill the gap of Bitcoin focused web development instruction. So few resources are available in this space which is what led to me to put this project together.

The book is now out and available on Amazon:

This book covers everything to get started in learning to create Bitcoin web applications from scratch.  No more copying code, or looking for pre-built templates! In this book you will learn to write your own!  You will go from simple hello world tutorials in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP to building fully functional Bitcoin websites like an online store and a game.

  • Over 120 code examples
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP
  • Learn the fun way by building real working applications
  • Create dynamic sites that interact with your users
  • Build a store that accepts Bitcoin
  • Create your own Bitcoin game

Two years ago I started a YouTube channel where I focus on Bitcoin web development tutorials. There are now 600+ subscribers and I have received mostly positive feedback. About a year and a half ago, I started a thread here on Bitcointalk (So You Want To Use Bitcoin On Your Website) as a resource for new comers, so they can find the answers to the most common questions in one place.

I didn't create all these tutorials because I'm some elite professional developer.  In fact, I'm just a hobbyist.  I created these because none existed.  When I got started with Bitcoin related web development I had lots of questions, but could find very few answers.  This is the gap that I hope this book will fill.

10  Economy / Micro Earnings / Crazy idea, use webspeech API on faucets for protection against bots? on: February 02, 2016, 02:42:23 AM
What if a faucet used webspeech API to protect against bots?

The faucet could have a box, a shape, font color whatever and it be a certain color, say green.
Then the user must click a button then speak the color of a specific object in this example 'green', in order to move to the next page.
A sortof speech captcha.

I think this would be relatively easy to set up, what do you think? I think it could really throw the bots for a loop, at least for a little while.

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / JSON RPC PHP on: December 26, 2015, 08:10:00 AM
Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I'm trying to access my node running on my computer via my webserver.
Keep getting the same error.

Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Incorrect response id (request id: 1, response id: )' in /home/site/public_html/jsonRPCClient.php:152
Stack trace:
#0 /home/site/public_html/node.php(8): jsonRPCClient->__call('getinfo', Array)
#1 /home/site/public_html/node.php(8): jsonRPCClient->getinfo()
#2 {main}
  thrown in /home/site/public_html/jsonRPCClient.php on line 152

I've searched, and have found similar threads with the same error as me, but no clear fix.
Put my webserver as rpcallowip...

my bitcoin.conf

test code

$btc= new jsonRPCClient('http://userRPC:passRPC@');


Does it matter if I launch bitcoin core, vs bitcoind.exe since I put server=1 in my conf? I've tried launching both, they both do the same thing. I even receive the exact same error if I close my node down, so I'm clearly have an issue connecting.  Bitcoind.exe doesn't do anything, it opens a command window, but there's no text or anything going on to confirm it's working... is that normal?

14  Bitcoin / Project Development / Shopping Cart System using Blockchain's new Receive Payments API v2 BIP32 xpub on: November 28, 2015, 10:17:41 PM is phasing out their version 1 receive payments API on Dec 7th. Their new version is out, the main difference is HD BIP32 xpub instead of payment forwarding. I have tested it out, and I must say I enjoy it much more than the previous version.

In the process of testing it out I created a shopping cart system that small merchants can use to sell whatever they want on their website, so I thought I'd throw it up on github.

What you'll need:
- API key for their new receive payments API. Request one here
- A website and host that supports PHP, and MySQL databases. Preferably cPanel with PHPmyAdmin.
- Download the files in the repository at github
- Create and configure a database on your webserver
- Import the included SQL database files using PHPmyadmin or similar database manager
- Open the config.php file and update the fields
- Upload the files to your server.
- Goto login.php in the directory where you uploaded your files to access your admin panel and start adding products!

This site has been sold. See the auction thread here:

Hey All,
  Please take a moment to check out my newest faucet and let me know what you think about the bonus game I made.

Every time you visit you will receive a standard claim and then you will also get to play a unique bonus game.

How it works: The computer will pick a number between 1 - 100. The object is for you to guess that number with the least amount of guesses.
Every time you guess the wrong number you will receive a hint(greater than or less than) and the bonus reward will get smaller.

300-10,000 every 30 minutes.
Instant payout to faucetBOX.
100% referral commission paid on standard claims (300 sats, commission is not paid on bonus game winnings).

20  Economy / Micro Earnings / Project: Faucet Profit Calculator on: September 04, 2015, 12:01:33 AM

I put together this attempt at a simple faucet profit calculator.
Why? Because there are none that exist. The reason none exist is probably because there are so many variables when running a faucet but regardless I think if we can get enough of us together to collaborate we could come up with something that is very close to being accurate.
Why? Because the number one question from new faucet owners seems to be how much to set the reward at and time interval. Also the bitcoin price has been known to fluctuate  Wink and a calculator could help adjusting rewards easier.

I put it in a JSfiddle ( and commented out everything so that others can easily fork it with their changes.

What requires the most amount of input to make the calculator more accurate are the assumptions:

  • How many claims does the average unique user make per day?
  • What is the average ad revenue per unique user per day? (I made a poll for this because it's against google's TOS to disclose earnings, the poll will make it anonymous enough that google won't track you down Wink )

There are some faucet owners out there that force people to click ads. You're 50% click-thru rate is not helpful knowledge to this project as it is against EVERY advertising service's TOS. People doing this will just get banned anyways, so those figures are useless.

I know I'm missing things like referral bonus and earnings made from bitcoin ad services like a-ads or referring to other faucets etc. We could probably just create checkboxes on the calculator and add those figures.

Please post your input and your forked versions in this thread. If you make a change to the code, please post the link AND describe the changes you made.
