BitAdShelf Advertising Faucet

Hey everyone,

I've been working on designing a new Bitcoin faucet which works on sharing advertising revenue with its users. The site is now in BETA and is ready for large-scale testing. The entire site has been built from the ground up using my own coding libraries so if anyone comes across any bugs or spelling errors, please let me know so I can fix them.

The platform itself works on advertisers pre-purchasing views for their URL and for the user, a website will be displayed for 5 minutes at the end of which the user can claim their share of the revenue. There is also a referral program where you can earn 50% commission from your referred users website views.

I've used the last of my Bitcoins to pre-load some advertising pages for new users, and am hoping to attract some more advertising as the user base grows.

Please be patient with the development of the site as like I said, it is still in the testing stage but is also fully functional (to the best of my knowledge).

There is basic functionality for users at the moment. You can login using only your Bitcoin address, view websites in exchange for uBTC and withdraw funds. Minimum withdrawal is 100 uBTC.

For advertisers there is a basic form that needs filling in, including the amount of page views you wish to purchase, the cost per view, you can even change how many times your page is displayed to the same user (default 1). All URLs will need to be manually validated before a round goes live, but if an URL has been approved previously then it will be automatically approved next time pending payment.

I am currently working on expanding both the user and advertiser interfaces. The user account will soon have features such as auto-withdraw functions, statistics and password protected withdrawals.

I am also working on a premium advertisers panel which will have the following features:

    Multiple URLs in a single round - A random URL is displayed for each view
    Bid for static advertising space on our site
    More detailed statistics - Find out more about who visits your links
    Round modification - Pause, cancel or change the URL of an active round
    Round templates - No need to complete a form every time you place an order
    Withdraw funds from your account - Any leftover balance in your account can be returned
    Automated round creation - Create a new round automatically every hour, day or week

My hope is to develop the faucet in to a large-scale advertising platform, making it easier for advertisers to get their websites out there while making it easy for regular users to earn Bitcoins and find out about some great Bitcoin related services. As the site grows, so too will the availability of different advertising methods.

I had also developed some games a while ago for a Bitcoin/Litecoin casino I was going to open, but with the massive increase in crypto gambling I decided it was too competitive, so I will eventually incorporate these games in to the site as well and give you the chance to increase your balance by loads more. These games include 4-Player liars dice and a game similar to Battleship.

The website is currently at: http://btc.biohazard-studios.com

This URL is due to change some time in the near future and is only temporary for now. It's worth noting my web host has had some server issues over the past couple of days, but they reassured me everything will be fine again in 3 days, so the site might experience a few minutes of down time every now and then.

Feed back would be greatly appreciated  Smiley

So are you selling hits or you just expose users to ads?

Exposing users to ads for a certain amount of time, I expect things to be slow for a little while until I can get my own advertising budget sorted. The site is going to be non-profit, with any coins made being used to pay for upkeep and offsite advertising.

I know there have been a couple of messages asking when there will be more ads available. I'm just waiting on some more coins to clear so I can add some more and increase the user base. The more people who sign up, the more appealing the faucet becomes for advertisers.

If anyone is interested, there are still some ads available which will pay out and more are on the way.

Also will be adding an URL shortening feature to the site too. Earn more Bitcoins by shortening URLs and sharing them around.
