I used to run a bitcoin faucet myself. It ran for a few months, and i must say: the top visitors earned quite a bit. But then again it cost them a lot of time.

I made sure my faucet was break-even, so i maximised the user's earnings.
I don't recommend faucets to "make a profit". Just use it to get a little bit of bitcoin to play around with.

I really loved helping the bitcoin community this way, because it really helps beginners to discover bitcoin.

I plan on restarting my faucet, but i'm unsure about wether i can make it break-even this time. If not, i'll just lose my initial investment.

If your faucet is a "normal" one (ie. has x time between redemptions, requires no registration and is a straight "enter address and fill captcha") feel free to toss me a PM and I'll add it to my rotator.

Yep, it's a "normal" one Smiley
I'll let you know when the faucet is online.

You managed to get .50 usd in 3 days.
With 5$ /month I bet that less than even a part part half time work in Ethiopia.

You realize as somebody said before , it's something like "please give something for free?"

I wondered what it would be like to run a faucet so I started one over here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=342972.0

But I'm looking to make it a user-defined site by getting as much feedback as possible and changing things around to see what people want, and maybe add a few twists to maintain interest

The problem with the low BTC amounts you get from free faucets (dust) is the huge % fee you have to pay when you sending the dust. It might be for new user bad experience with Bitcoin right from the start

Yeah it's like learning about transaction inputs the hard way

How so little? You earn more than that through a single run of my rotator in around 3 minutes, o.O. You're doing something wrong, lol.

I currently run a faucet , first the Myfaucet inputs.io faucet and now the Bandi MiniFaucet.
It's pretty cool, but it needs good ads to break even with lots of visitors.

Also i think if u add up all the faucets + btc bux type site's , you should be able to make a few mBTC, just not a lot.

No, not anymore.  The 5400 satoshi dust limit and fees make them somewhat problematical now.  When I first started in bitcoin the faucets were a great way to start to learn about it.  However, as a serious source of money, no, which makes sense once you realize they are basically giving away money in exchange for ads and have to overcome botters.

The sad thing is that as bitcoin continues to become more successful, the faucet payments have to drop.  Even the "pay to click" payouts have dropped dramatically.  Abitback even gave up on bitcoin cash outs.

Today about the best option seems to be those folks selling ad space in their signatures.  Good Luck!

Viable way? the best way would be to purchase it. They are really just for fun and to spread the bitcoin message around.

They used to handout 1btc+ at each claim!!!

Definitely not worth it if it takes away from a real paying job, worth it thou if you like to just spend your time on the internet wasting much of your life looking at crap adverts.

It helped me to get introduced in Bitcoin. It was fun to watch my account go from zero BTC to 0.1 BTC (was back in 2012). Soon after that I just bought a few. But ask yourself, is it worth your time to get paid 0.5 dollar in three days.
