BlackHatCoiner's on and off-chain testnet faucet

The point of this thread is to spread the usage of the lightning network and give some tBTC to those who want to test things in the Bitcoin ecosystem. I recently noticed that there aren't many testnet faucets and those that exist give tiny amounts in which you can't test the LN. (by opening a channel, for instance)

I, myself, will build a faucet that will give tBTC off-chain and on-chain, but I don't know when exactly will that happen. Thus, I decided to make this thread; to help those who want to try it out or experiment with the system without having to risk any real bitcoins. (Since 6-digit of testnet sats are nowadays hard to find)

If you don't know what's the lightning network see “Basics of the Lightning Network”.



On-chain faucet

If you want tBTC on-chain submit the application as following:
Code:
Amount: <VALUE_IN_BTC>
Address: <YOUR_ADDRESS>

Lightning faucet

I've opened a channel with - 0270685ca81a8e4d4d01beec5781f4cc924684072ae52c507f8ebe9daf0caaab7b@159.203.125.125:9735 - and deposited about 0.15 tBTC. I'll probably always have enough sending capacity.

Here's the application you'll have to submit if you want tBTC via LN:
Code:
Amount: <VALUE_IN_BTC>
Invoice: <YOUR_INVOICE>

Rules:

  • You can ask up to 1,000,000 sats or 0.01 tBTC. (PM me if you want more, I can make exceptions if you convince me that you really need them)
  • Once you're done with your testing, you ought to return them back to me excluding the mining fees you've paid. It doesn't matter when, but within a reasonable time I should have them back. (e.g., 1-6 months)
  • You may want to ask several times for additional deposits. Indeed, you can ask for tBTC multiple times as long as you've returned the previous amount(s) you submitted.
  • You won't sell them, I know. There's no reason to sell such small amount. However, if you've been found to do something suspicious with them, you'll get my negative feedback and you'll obviously be unable to re-ask for more tBTC.

It'll be my pleasure to help someone who had never interacted with the lightning network before. Newbies and Jr. Members will receive 1 merit if they're using LN for the first time, unless their history is full of bounty applications or they're loaded with negative trusts.

    Hi.

    I am interested in trying out LN. All I know about LN is that it's faster version of btc that can solve the issue of scalability.

    Can you guide me a bit how can I can my LN address which I can provide in this application for testing of LN.

    Apart for testing LN, I m also interested in getting 1 merit which you are offering.

    Thank you.

    There are many great forum references when it comes to the Lightning Network. Here are just some of them that you can take a look at:

    Basics of the Lightning Network
    A Beginner's guideline to Bitcoin Lightning Network
    The Lightning Network FAQ

    If you want to use LN on Electrum, read Electrum Lightning Network walkthrough.
    For a list of wallets supporting LN payments, check out Open-source Lightning wallets.

    You should give BlueWallet a try. It's a custodial wallet so you won't have to worry about opening and balancing your channels - they are slightly to difficult to understand at first. Every time you want someone to send you coins, you need to provide them a payment invoice. The Lightning Network does not use addresses.

    If you just want to test out the Lightning Network then try using a custodial wallet like BlueWallet. You won't have to worry about opening your own channels and it should be easy to use. Once someone pays your invoice, you can use this website to choose a service which accepts Lightning payments.
