you can always create a new wallet address lol.

problem solved and now dedicated for non faucet stuff.

Huh

Maybe just keep that wallet only for the faucet-related activities?
I wouldn't use my main address to gamble around.

Most of them doesn't do it to save mBTC but what you suggested wouldn't solve the *dust-problem*.

Using a xapo wallet just for faucets is a good idea, it solves the dust problem. Do not use faucets that pay out at low values. And have patience, the dust might be more than that in a few years. Use your dust to pay for stuff, sometimes it might be handy to have some dust to use for adding to a payment without to many bytes going into the transaction. Using it for miner fees is a nice way too Smiley

why do you need a program for this? you can easily use blockchain.info as OP says he is using and send all your btc to a new address which will get rid of the dust for you and also creates an address with a single input
I have enough dust that the fees would actually be higher than the total value of the dust. There are methods to remove dust by sending them as miner's fees (https://github.com/petertodd/dust-b-gone), but I want to rescue the dust and consolidate it into usable inputs. DannyHamilton's method would allow for this and require 0 fees.
no doubt about what danny said. but what i meant was the thing that i did to get rid of my dust.
i had small transactions from 5000 satoshi to 100,000 satoshies and i send the whole lot of them to another address of mine with a 0 fee and after a couple of days the tx got confirmed

If the inputs are new, they may not get confirmed very fast due to the low coin age.  You are lucky that your transaction is below 1kb as transaction higher than 1kb confirm very slowly or never confirms without fees. It is not recommended to spend dust without fees if the coins have to confirm urgently.

If you want to reuse these dust again (at least %50 of them);
First use a wallet that supports "coin control"
Then select those dust addresses and calculate the minimal fee.
Create a new wallet address (from a different wallet).

Send the dust to the new address.
When you combined those dusts into one input; it's priority will not be lowest no longer.

Bitcoin-core v0.9+ wallets support coin control. I don't know others.

How do we use coin control? Is it automatically calculated minimum tx fee?
Sending without fee is always an option if you have time.

Coin control is a feature that lets user to choose their inputs usually for anonymity purposes but sometime also to prevent high transaction fees from using too much inputs. Tx fees are calculated in clients based on the amount you choose, if you have one.

open your wallet in blockchain, create new address.
select custom send, select that address, fill it with all of your balance in that address (substract 50000 satoshi from it for fee)
and add 0.0005 BTC for fee
your dust will gone (to new address), but you need to wait for period of time

Sending without fee is always an option if you have time.

First you need to activate coin control feature from the settings.
Then click the send page of the core wallet.

You'll see the rectangle about this feature.

Click the "Inputs..." button and you can see the inputs. Select the smallest amounts and "lowest priority" inputs.

I prefer paying 1000 sats per kb. (1 satoshi for 1 byte). This amount of fee makes the tx "medium priority" and usually it gets in a block in 1 hour (or 6 blocks).

I got rid of some dust using the Instawallet service.
Bitvisitor was one of the pages that generated more dust, because they sent every uBTC that you won viewing pages.

I got a question, forget about dust.
Let us suppose , i use a single blockchain wallet for all of my transations(not dust) but since there are so many of them over time , so in future will it have the same problem as this dust ? i.e. high transaction fee and less output?
