Pretty well as the title implies, this is just a place for those wee little baby monkeys to congregate and spam each other upvotes for that sweet sweet potassium enabling karma.
Have at it friends, I'll be doing my part to help.
Edit: I dont need karma. This is for people out there below the 100 karma threshold for the weekly faucet.
For instance, I just found out my fiancé, who's been a redditor for over a year and who got me to start using it, only has 68 karma.
It may sound shocking now, but in 2010 it was reality.
The creator of website “freebitcoins.appspot.com” where user could collect free Bitcoins is Gavin Andresen. The website is not working anymore. Each of users received 5 Bitcoins per day just by solving captcha. The purpose of this game was to promote cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin itself. Looks like the purpose got fullfilled.
To fuel the first faucet, Andresen loaded it with 1,100 BTC of his own. After these were given away, the faucet was reloaded, with early bitcoin miners and whales also donating coins.
Andresen said that: “Bitcoins are a new kind of money, and that they aren’t created or controlled by a government like USD or EUR, they’re created and controlled by anybody who wants to be part of the Bitcoin payment network.”
This faucet managed to give away to people 19,700 Bitcoins which is now worth $1,171,852,530.
Here is the Andresens original post about the faucet that he posted in June 11, 2010. I highly recommend you to read it. To imagine that someone gave him back 50 BTCs just because he felt bad for getting 5 for free is ridiculous now.
I thought it would be great idea to share this nice piece of history.
Have a nice day !
I have two cats. One is the perfect little angel baby. The other is a fluffy, needy, abusive jerk-face who is the weirdest, quirkiest, most demanding cat I’ve ever owned. He has me well-trained to attend to his every need.
One of his quirks is that he basically won’t drink water from a bowl. He also won’t drink from any number of fancy cat fountains we have tried. He only likes the tiniest drips and trickles of water flowing freely from a tub faucet.
Now, I’ve had this cat for 10 years so I love him but this is a TIFU a decade in the making. He loves drinking water. He constantly will walk into the living room and sit down with his cute dumb little face covered in water after drinking from the thin trickle in the tub.
I’m living in Houston, a city I really love, but which is in the state of Texas where we can’t get our collective deregulated stuff together. We’ve had electric outages for days and now we are under a boil water notice.
My special little butthole kept going into the bathroom and knocking things down because he was trying to get me to go in there and turn the water on. He doesn’t understand that the water might kill him right now. He only knows that he’s thirsty.
And when this cat wants something, he gets it. There’s no point in deterring him. Any normal deterrents that work on other cats—covering surfaces in tinfoil, bitter sprays, spray bottle, tape—do not deter him. Ignoring him doesn’t work because he will escalate to knocking over bigger and bigger objects until you come see him, then he purrs and winds around your legs like the little spoiled prince that he is.
So, the Dark Lord was thirsty and I couldn’t put his water on, and he kept knocking down my lotion. I finally took a water bottle over the tub and poured a trickle out for him to drink. Then I moved one of the big spout spring water containers to the tub, opened the spout to a trickle, and then sat by my dumb fluffy asshole until he was done drinking because I have no idea when we will get water back.
TLDR; TIFU by having the pickiest fluffy spoiled cat prince who is adding to the stress of our broken utilities situation in Texas by making me figure out how to water him properly.
Edit: I really appreciate all the stories of equally picky cats, as well as the faucet-style fountains! They live such charmed lives. Mine has tried multiple cat fountains and rejected all of them, I think because he doesn’t like the noise, so I hope to find his holy grail fountain one day. He doe... keep reading on reddit ➡
currently broken, I'm fixing it :s fixed [edit2] broken again, CORS and self signed HTTPs certificate are screwing me, I'm working on it -_-
I was surprised to see that there was only a testnet faucet (at least I didn't find a mainnet one) so I've forked/built one to help newcomers to onboard on Polygon: https://matic.supply
No ads, no tracking, no BS, just click and collect your ticket for no-fees land :)
ps: I'm very new to web dev, this is a personal side project
Also this is only compatible with Metamask at the moment, I'll try to add WalletConnect later this week :)
For the past 3 days I have been working on this little project. It is a dashboard interface with data from all current exchanges trading GRLC. It get updated in real-time. So no more need to sit with multiple tabs open at all time to get that juicy garlic fix.
There is also a faucet. I have supplied it with some of my stinky boys to get it running, feel free to contribute and spread some love by donating to it.
As this project is still in its infancy there are some potential bugs lurking about and some future features missing. I am also really interested to hear what the community would want added to it and if you guys find it of use. If you find any bugs or things that should not be, please PM me.
Edit:Being able to switch between $/BTC has been requested a lot and will be in the next update.One fancy chef just contributed with 150 GRLC to the oven! Thank you so much 🧄
This post will be a little winded, but future updates will be shorter. Just wanna give a little background info. I discovered crypto back in 2017. I bought BTC, ETH, and LTC at the start of the bull run. I traded by BTC for shit coins and HODL'd through the 2018 crash. 2019 came around and I was unemployed and wanted a new PC to play GTA roleplay. So I did what any reasonable HODL'r would do and sold all my crypto assets to the tune of just enough for a new PC. So basically I'm a professional! /s
I've been back in since August of last year and DCA into 5 cryptos. I've been awakened to blockchain technology and its benefits. So now that we've established that I know what I'm talking about lets get into the point of this post.
30 Days of Faucets
I've curated a list of crypto faucets that I'm going to claim from every day as often as I can. I will post the claim results showing # of claims, coins earned, total daily USD, and total USD to date.
The faucets include:
For Transparency: 2 BTC, 1 ETH, 1 LTC, and 1 DOGE faucets are being tested, as in I haven't hit their withdrawal minimum yet so I don't if they're legit yet. The rest I have successfully withdrawn from at some point in the past.
What is a faucet?
Definition via Coinmarketcap: " A crypto faucet is an app or a website that distributes small amounts of cryptocurrencies as a reward for completing easy tasks. ... Most websites offer a minimum payout threshold, so the rewards earned by completing tasks are deposited into an online wallet of the site. "
So basically you complete an easy task, usually solving a captcha, and the faucet rewards you with a small amount of crypto. The amount rewarded depends on the price of crypto you are acquiring. Higher coin price = lower reward.
Most faucets allow you to claim on a timer. The faucets I'm using have timers set at 25, 30, and 60 minutes. Most of these faucets offer multiple ways to earn more crypto. You can expect to find some or all of these on most faucets:
I am trying to change a faucet in the home I just bought.
What next??? https://imgur.com/gallery/CgxVpvK

I'm trying to get the old faucet off but I don't see what to loosen next.
EDIT: Sorry, just trying to change a leaking faucet.
The kitchen will be redone later (likely in 2.5 years when I have my next set of military orders to set if I am staying in the house)
EDIT2: http://imgur.com/a/4a9JAQA Sink is in but not connected.
Edit 3: Finished. Multitool to cut a rusted bolt then 2 trips to the hardware store (one to return all the feed lines I bought, as I didn't need then, and another to return the compression fittings for pipe thread fittings.
I also switched out a shower head and arm. The shower is in a converted closet and sprays directly towards the shower curtain. To make things better, I install a rainfall unit.

Okay, let's get started!
When you visit the banano website there are 5 "official" faucets listed:
I finally got my karma up past 100 and was able to use the banano faucet.
2 seconds later and I get an alert that 10 banano were deposited in my wallet. It was so fast and so easy, can’t wait for 7 days to go by so I can do it again :)
So. Flippin. Cool.
I worked at an employer several years ago and we used Keybase. I was lucky to get all three lumen drops. I lost access for a while and then found my recovery key (yay).
This experience lead me to wonder what options really exist to get crypto in the wild. And I don’t mean mining it.
I’ve seen some crypto faucet things but it sounds like BS to me.
I don’t mind doing that but my investable cash is a monthly flow vs a lump sum and I’d love to find other ways to grow my stake.
Are there any reliable ways to get crypto like this or is it basically just buying?
Just wanted to give everyone a quick update, everyone that successfully signed up on the website should have their Pudding Points in their wallets. I reached out to a few people who still need to authorize the ASA, and I'll be checking https://algoexplorer.io/asset/197112469 to try to get PUPO out to anyone who managed to authorized the ASA but not submit an airdrop request / or somehow got overlooked. Please message me if you're in these shoes!
If you didn't participate, fear not. 97,000,000 PUPO were distributed in the inaugural airdrop, and 413,000,000 PUPO remains earmarked for further airdrops. The remaining 500,000,000 PUPO remain in a treasury for various future uses. As games/dApps are developed in the Pudding Points ecosystem, this treasury will be the source of rewards. I currently maintain control of the airdrop and treasury accounts, but hope to move towards smart-contract based governance in time.
While not a dApp in any sense, I have created a super simplistic manual "faucet" that enables me to receive requests for small amounts of PUPO, check it out here. https://puddingpoints.com/pupo-faucet/ Next up is working on some automations, I have a lot of catching up to do on back-end development but I'm slowly and surely making progress. (Please let me know if captcha breaks for you) Will also be looking to make some quality-of-life improvements on the visual side - be on the lookout for a logo/media design competition with potential ALGO/PUPO rewards!
Can't thank everyone enough for the support, hope you enjoy the pudding!
Hello, Awkward title and goofy question... But does anyone know a decent site to review kitchen faucets that isn't just full of Amazon ad promotions (or any recommendations for a good kitchen faucet)? I need to find a decent faucet made from good parts that will last. I'm not interested in one with a pull down sprayer, because in my experience these wind up needing to be taken apart every couple of months to clean or replace the o-ring. Our moen single handle pull down sprayer has been such a pain, and ready to replace it with something simple and durable. But when searching online the "top" recommendations are always links to Amazon... and the search takes hours because all faucet review sites seem to be just Amazon promotions. But I doubt the quality of Amazon recommendations (especially when reviewers note that "top" faucets rusted within a year). I don't care if it's single handle or double handle because we'll be replacing our double basin sink with a single basin, and finding a quality faucet is higher priority.
I reread yesterday's post and I think I could have done a better job of explaining what I'm doing. This is NOT me looking for a source of income. A few people yesterday insisted it isn't worth the time claiming faucets and honestly I agree for the most part. I make claims while I am otherwise doing nothing. Work breaks, in between games, surfing the net. So I see it as getting paid to do nothing. The whole point of this experiment is simply to see how much crypto can be acquired over 30 days.
I also think faucets are still helpful for people who are new to the space and just wanna get their feet wet. Also who knows what 1 satoshi today could be worth tomorrow for someone from a developing nation. Just food for thought.
A few people asked yesterday for the faucets I was using. Below is a list of all the faucets I'm using. I'm only listing the ones that I've successfully withdrawn from in the past.
I'll add that if you want to earn a few dollars a month check out Brave web browser. I use it on my PC and mobile and earn between 4-5 BAT a month. For those unfamiliar with Brave they send you ads in the form of push notifications and pay you in BAT for it. You can get up to 5 ads per hour. Ads don't have to be clicked on. Just close the notification and earn BAT. (Link to Brave website in faucet list below)

Only when I looked in the mirror and saw the swarm of creatures burst from my head did I realise it had been inside my skull the whole time.
So I moved into my current flat 4 months ago. Overall it's fine but there has been a few issues I noticed as soon as I arrived.
The biggest one is the bathroom faucet leaks. Minor thing, not a big deal, but when I pointed this out to my roommates in our group chat one of them sent me a link to the agency to put in a request to repair it.
I know this is minor and maybe petty but I don't feel like I should be the one to put in the request and make sure it gets fixed since it was a problem BEFORE I arrived and it seems like neither of them bothered to do anything about it.
FYI I did arrive during lockdown (in the UK) so they might have been waiting for that to end to contact the agency but still.
It's also not the only issue I noticed (bathroom lock sticks, fridge leaks, etc) but it's the most inconvenient.
So WIBTA if I brought it up again and made clear it shouldn't be on me or would I be making a mountain out of a mole hill?
EDIT: Thanks for the feedback y'all! Yeah, I agree it's best to just get it sorted on my own and not cause more drama than its worth. I'll put in the request this week.
I moved in yesterday to a newly constructed apartment. I started a load of laundry shortly after and my whole apartment reeked of rotten eggs/sewage.
This is because the water from the water tank had been sitting stagnant for X amount of time before moving in. Don't be like me and drink the water from the tap before doing this. .

I've been checking out faucets as a way to generate some extra coins, but they all seem to want me to start an account with my email address and they tend be the ones where you have to perform activities to gain coins.
At this point are faucets worth the time you put in to them?
