Even if they gave away a bitcent, it'd be cool

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

No, I don't have time to clean up the code, port it to the latest AppEngine API, etc.

The Faucet was the simplest possible project I could think of to get my feet wet with Bitcoin; the hard part is preventing cheaters who try to get more than their fair share, and I was never able to come up with a really good solution (that is tied into the whole identity-on-the-Internet thing, which nobody has solved).

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Maybe you could come up with some kind of "proof of work" scheme to give a fair share of BTC out to everyone Wink ?

Edit: Ha, was supposed to be a funny comment, but could actually work. Just make a faucet coin client using a proof-of-work scheme a la Yacoin (scrypt targeted to CPUs) and then trade these tokens for faucet bitcoins. It still depends on the number/power of CPUs you have, but would somewhat alleviate the IP/idententity problems..
Its like trying to turn the clock back a little bit when bitcoins could be mined without ASCIC/GPUs.

Showing the number of Bitcoins available is on my TODO list.  I just checked and the balance is up to 1,135 (thanks to whoever donated!).

And right now it is 5 bitcoins per IP address (not bitcoin address).  Not per-day-- just 5.  I want to start out conservatively, I will loosen it to 5 per (day?/week?/month?) if people start having lots of trouble because they get a dynamic IP address from their ISP that already got some.

RE: captchas:  yeah, I was gonna start out with a captcha, but I wanted it to be as simple and non-threatening as possible.  I don't think anybody who has access to hundreds or thousands of working public IP addresses would go to the effort of writing a bitcoin-harvesting robot, though I suppose somebody with a botnet might take a crack at it.  To make that tougher I could make it 5 bitcoins per IP AND 5 bitcoins per bitcoin address (so they couldn't have all the bots in the botnet using the same BC address).







good morning G!

~is the "giveaway" still on bud? If i could get 5BTC my attitude about the bitcoin world would change dramatically! HELP ME!!! PLEASE!!! I PROMISE TO MAKE MIRACLES HAPPEN!!

Please do not revive this ancient thread.
This was when bitcoins were cents each , now there are 200+ each.

Would any mod please move to archival or lock ?

No longer active on bitcointalk, however, you can still reach me via PMs if needed.
