monetizing a site is not an easy task but at least you have some tools to attract visitors.
But I believe this where the profits and hence the entire success of running a faucet lying. There would be no point in choosing a faucet business without having any proper plan on attracting users. Most faucets do get their visitors for the first round and failing to keep them rechecking the faucets. At the same time, a faucet cannot pay big amount of satoshi to make the to keep on coming back. Really the management oriented decisions needed.

Other than this, the owner needs to focus on proxy checking and bot detection because fake visitors usually eat up all the funds of faucets to enforce them to dry up so quicker.

Hi,

I have a question regarding your own BTC faucet. Is it profitable to run it in 2017?
I was thinking to run it via WordPress.
What initial investment is needed?

If you are asking about BTC faucets, I cannot deny to myself that is profitable.  But by doing it in the long term I think not. The only person can benefit on it very much was the one who made the faucets. Why not think of another  options where you gonna invest your capital, much good to invest in buying bitcoin or create your own coin in crypto if you can afford to do it. Smiley

It all comes down to Traffic and the Advertising Network you choose. Right now the best way to earn in a faucet is having a large traffic together with the ad provider you choose. I barely know any knowledge into it but in order to even break-even you need to be generous with your faucet and also keep track with your statistic to know what you are doing is right.

Not at all, don't go create a shitcoin because you only gong to fool yourself since nobody will ever invest a penny in the coin, faucets times are over people have found other ways to earn more than the dust faucets were giving, though you could try to operate a faucet 8 years from now with the same claiming rewards as now Cheesy.

profit, and lose it depends on where you set all that you do. it was obviously very profitable, if you have set up all you'd do. perhaps by utilizing advertising, and put it in your faucet. provides several features that can bring benefits to you, and much more. but, most likely, will come to the site faucet is just a beginner.

Bitcoin faucets I know is good for newbie only, and for the old member here it is only a way of fun while not busy in their daily life. Grin
But in reality you can only earn bitcoin faucets for only small amount of satoshi it wouldn't help us much in terms of earnings big in Bitcoin, let say 0.000003BTC for every hour x 12 hours=0.00036BTCx30/days=0.00108BTC in this total amount what will happen to you, its not good in long terms. Much good to use your investment in buying bitcoin or Eth,ltc, etc.

I think there are lots of faucet in the internet and the most visited is said to be having a big giveaway.
I think the people want to earn fast but through faucets it must really take time and patience. I think there must be somewhat like bonuses that will really make bitcoin users visit your faucet.

For me, using faucet is a waste of time and energy. The Bitcoins which you get from faucets are not free. You have to type captchas, and in some faucets you have to visit certain webpages. And the reward which you get in the end is too minuscule.

Faucet owners need to be optimistic and made plans for long-run in order to start filling their pockets!
First necessary step is adequate funds. One must sustain handsome amount as reserve before starting the faucet! Its not like having 0.05 BTC and think of reimbursing 0.05 in a week with ads!
After adequate amount, one need to focus on selection of right ads. Adsense can be handy to earn high short term profits but most of the faucet owners see Adsense Ban more or soon. So better indulge in right ads for start because ads are only lifeline for faucets.
Third and most important, as I discuss in first line. Don't rush for quick profit. Let the faucet be settled, let it be famous and then think of earnings.
Minimum recommended capital - 0.5 BTC

Yes, you should because bitcoin in this year 2017 is more expensive and increase its number year by year you should do it the chances are you will get more profit from that you will have to spend time with it a month or more by it but be wise on your decision because faucet i needed to be optimistic and made of plans for a long run in order to gain and you will have to wait for it because it has a lower amount of income its great for a starter but once you will find something more profitable and gain more bitcoin you will just leave that faucet of yours.

Thank you everyone, who shared your answers and suggestions. I appreciate your comments. I think that I will give a try to run a faucet this spring. Starting budget is 1 BTC. We'll see how it goes.

It is only profitable I think for the owner of the creator of faucets. But for the community like me I think it will only be good to me for the starting only but as time goes by it wouldn't good as much.

Yes ,many bitcoiners want to earn many bitcoins in a faucet. But on the owner side it is hard because he needs to fund the hosting to run due to its faucet income per click and maximum claims per day he needs big capital for that .What if the faucet is not that to known and not visited as always he is the one who suffered . Why not if you want to take risk . A faucet will only profitable to the owner if he have many visitors and players on his site. It is just like a gambling house ,more players more income .  Cheesy

Faucet sites are really good if there are lots of visitors or people who claim but most people do gain knowledge in the longer runs that's why they will surely realize that claiming faucet amounts is too small and won't be worth for your time.

Yes. If you use the right methods, then you may be able to earn a lot more in (advertisement) revenues when compared to the expenses. Keep in mind that you need to set a slightly harder threshold. If your faucet is giving 0.001 mBTC at a time, then make the threshold 0.1 mBTC. The user needs to visit the site 100 times, before he can withdraw the payment. Only a very few are going to have that much patience.
The idea is good but if people have no such patience who will watch your ads? Your crane will just be ignored. Now even the number of cranes decreased because bitcoin is very low cost and there are many sites in traditional currencies where the pay is higher.

Faucet can be still profitable if your website has many visitors or many collectors and depends on your methods and ads that you apply on your faucet i created my own btc faucet but i can't handled it because im always busy at school so idecided to sell it.

I'm not running a faucet myself, but just today I checked that freebitco.in transfered over 0.13 BTC, and that's for one week only, to their users. I think it's profitable if they are doing this for years already.

I think the amount of your initial investment depends mostly on how much your faucet will be giving and on how many users you will have. The more users the more you have to pay, but on the other hand you can make money on ads on your site if you have a lot of daily visitors.

I am not sure if running such websites can be profitable, but i think it is a huge waste of time. When adsense banned faucets it has been since more and  more hard to monetize those sites. Some are still trying using others monetization possibilities like pop up, ect. Another problem is the huge amount of cheaters using bots, VPN/VPS proxies. No advertiser is interested in fake traffic. Some faucets like Freebitcoin/Mooncoin (not sure if the name are exact) are profitable because they have a huge members base already. Faucets come and disappea daily online so you can guess it not really works for the owners

most bitcoin users would not tend to waste of their time on collecting very small amounts on faucets,so it would not profitable.
