Topic: Get 5 free bitcoins from freebitcoins.appspot.com (Read 63151 times)

Showing the number of Bitcoins available is on my TODO list.  I just checked and the balance is up to 1,135 (thanks to whoever donated!).

And right now it is 5 bitcoins per IP address (not bitcoin address).  Not per-day-- just 5.  I want to start out conservatively, I will loosen it to 5 per (day?/week?/month?) if people start having lots of trouble because they get a dynamic IP address from their ISP that already got some.

RE: captchas:  yeah, I was gonna start out with a captcha, but I wanted it to be as simple and non-threatening as possible.  I don't think anybody who has access to hundreds or thousands of working public IP addresses would go to the effort of writing a bitcoin-harvesting robot, though I suppose somebody with a botnet might take a crack at it.  To make that tougher I could make it 5 bitcoins per IP AND 5 bitcoins per bitcoin address (so they couldn't have all the bots in the botnet using the same BC address).







good morning G!

~is the "giveaway" still on bud? If i could get 5BTC my attitude about the bitcoin world would change dramatically! HELP ME!!! PLEASE!!! I PROMISE TO MAKE MIRACLES HAPPEN!!

Please do not revive this ancient thread.
This was when bitcoins were cents each , now there are 200+ each.

Would any mod please move to archival or lock ?

No, I don't have time to clean up the code, port it to the latest AppEngine API, etc.

The Faucet was the simplest possible project I could think of to get my feet wet with Bitcoin; the hard part is preventing cheaters who try to get more than their fair share, and I was never able to come up with a really good solution (that is tied into the whole identity-on-the-Internet thing, which nobody has solved).

Maybe you could come up with some kind of "proof of work" scheme to give a fair share of BTC out to everyone Wink ?

Edit: Ha, was supposed to be a funny comment, but could actually work. Just make a faucet coin client using a proof-of-work scheme a la Yacoin (scrypt targeted to CPUs) and then trade these tokens for faucet bitcoins. It still depends on the number/power of CPUs you have, but would somewhat alleviate the IP/idententity problems..
Its like trying to turn the clock back a little bit when bitcoins could be mined without ASCIC/GPUs.

The Bitcoin Catalog ---> Get Started!
Even if they gave away a bitcent, it'd be cool

Check out for free bitcoin sites. There are plenty of them.
i.e. http://dailybitcoins.org/

For my first Bitcoin coding project, I decided to do something that sounds really dumb:  I created a web site that gives away Bitcoins.   It is at: https://freebitcoins.appspot.com/

Five ฿ per customer, first come first served, I've stocked it with ฿1,100 to start.  I'll add more once I'm sure it is working properly.

Why?  Because I want the Bitcoin project to succeed, and I think it is more likely to be a success if people can get a handful of coins to try it out.  It can be frustrating to wait until your node generates some coins (and that will get more frustrating in the future), and buying Bitcoins is still a little bit clunky.

Please try it out and get some free coins, even if you already have more Bitcoins than you know what to do with.  You can get some and then donate them right back; the address is: 15VjRaDX9zpbA8LVnbrCAFzrVzN7ixHNsC


฿1,100 @ todays mtgox: USD 118,800.00 WOW

Yeah, I remember getting 5 BTC from BitFaucet years ago. It seems silly now, but without things like this I'm not sure Bitcoin would be where it is today. Thank you!

you're more than 3 years to late Tongue

lmao.

It's still crazy though, to just think that people were giving away a potential '500' bucks to random strangers on the internet in the dozens.

the atmosphere of departure has gone, no wine for the peoples anymore  Grin

The wine has become much to valuable to give away.

Gosh, I wish I knew about bitcoin a year ago.

Hello guys!

I looked around for bitcoin and it look very interesting.
Right now i dont have any bitcoin YET but i am processing information to get my first.

Now i go on this forum and see someone giving away BITCOIN!

Is there any ways to still get  5 bitcoins to try this whole thing out?
