Originally posted in the newbie forum


I have a wallet at btcfaucet.com, logged in today to see the following message

"BTCfaucet is under a transition. The wallet service will be ceased indefinitely. Instead, the faucet will have drips of bitcoins every now and then with public txid's. This could take a few days. Thanks for your patience!"

I have emailed them but haven't heard back yet. I use this wallet for collecting my freebies from the various sites, and have built up some decent balances on some, and am now a bit concerned. Some sites don't let you change your payment address you see. Anyone have any knowledge or advice of what to do here? I would like to keep an online wallet so any recommendations on a new one? I liked this one as it was simple and clean. Is there anyway I can keep my bitcoin address but transfer where the wallet is kept?

Thanks for any help or advice.

You might have lost your coins. Don't use web wallets. Use a hybrid or downloadable one like Blockchain.info (recommended) or bitcoin-qt
