So wait, when selling bitcoins, it'd be better to sell in British Pounds, right? then through the magic of the interwebs turn that into USD

Depends. Britcoin works for me because I have a UK bank account. Mt Gox works as I described for anyone in the "SEPA" EU area, which includes the UK. if you're in the US or South Africa or something without a UK/EU bank account it's not going to work.

How about's do I go receiving this my friend? it's not showing up in my wallet at all. God im sorry for being such a noob at this.

It's got 11 confirmations in mine. How many completed blocks is your wallet showing? Mine's up to 130361.

You shouldn't have to do anything beyond post the correct address.

It's part of block 130351: http://blockexplorer.com/address/1PxvWC1g2BXXUjGkh5xE9SqWYQDGbX1TdK

The bottom right corner of my wallet says 2 connections 129179 blocks and 0 transactions. Not really sure what all that means though to be honest. I had to back up my wallet.dat file and re-download the client a moment ago because it was refusing to connect at all. but i restored it and inserted the address back into my receiving transactions section so yeah. I guess it should be working now?

Looking at your link it says ive received them but my wallet isn't showing anything. I think ive screwed this up somehow Sad no worries anyways. Thanks for helping me out Smiley

Actually I just read elsewhere that I dont have enough blocks for it to have occurred yet so that's probably whats happened here. Almost there though! Thanks again for the help and the donation! Will spread the love back around when I can.

If I understand things correctly, your wallet isn't yet up to date. When it gets up to block 130351 it will show your transaction and your +0.015 BTC credit. If you have a working Internet connection I believe that 129179 number should be gradually increasing until it is up to date. You can read the current block count figure here: http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/ (130367 at the time of writing).

Hey all dreading the downtime of the Faucet,
I have created a working one!

I call it the Bitcoin Dispenser and it can be found at http://freebitcoins.macdonaldboats.com/

I give complete credit to the creator of the Bitcoin Faucet for the idea.

If you have any extra Bitcents or Bitcoins please help out and donate!

Check out the site to see how it works, and to see how you can advertise on my site.

Thanks,
Garrett

Garr255 - the numbers for your dispenser are way to high for it to work - people will not donate that amount of money.

Most new people to bitcoin are just interested in getting ANY money in their wallet just to see it working.  I recommend just sending 0.01 BTC to them or something like that, then a donation of 1BTC will go a long way.

Hello everyone and thank you for the large amount of traffic and advise that has been given. I am using a 3rd party form service because at the time I was not expecting the huge amount of traffic, 400+ hits in less than 24 hours! This is why the form is not accepting any more submissions. But do not worry, I will have this fixed and implicate my own form tomorrow so more entries will be accepted.

Thanks everyone for your support,
Garrett

Hi,

The Bitcoin Dispenser can be found at http://freebitcoins.macdonaldboats.com/

It will be up and running within the next few days, because I am changing the form system around due to insane amounts of traffic Smiley

Sorry for the downtime and thanks for the support!

You can buy bitcoins at britcoin.co.uk.
In theory, but they have a few site issues that make it hard logging in, for instance...

Has yours gone through? It says mine has, but the client says nothing?

Glad to help - but they seem to be backed up at least several hours.  Roll Eyes

They do have a site which will give you that hash code to monitor progress.

Mine has still not arrived after 4 hours, but the transaction block is getting close.

Don't forget to visit the other "free coin" sites as well!

Hi there I know this probably get's asked a lot but is there any chance Bitcoin Faucet is ever gonna be working again> ive been checking for weeks and got nothing to show for it. I really want to get into this Bitcoin thing but due to my current situation (living in the UK with no access to any of the funding methods) have absolutely no way to purchase any Bitcoins. Just wondering if anyone else knows of any other ways to get even just a tiny bit of starter coins.

My Bitcoin address is 1PxvWC1g2BXXUjGkh5xE9SqWYQDGbX1TdK if anyone wanted to donate even the tiniest amount. Any tips would be great.
