Bitcoin Faucet in-general is a software, rewarding visitors with fractures of Bitcoin (or other crypto-currency).
So, basically Bitcoin Faucet owner exchanging traffic to small rewards, re-capitalizing on the banner impressions. Now available for WordPress =)

* Supports nearly all MicroPayment Systems.
* Supports different captcha systems (including CoinHive, RainCaptcha, SolveMedia and FunCaptcha – more monetization for you).
* Works fine on mobile devices.
* AdBlock-aware. No free-riding!
* Highly configurable via admin interface (changing color palettes / adding banner codes / etc.), no programming (nor deep knowledge of the WordPress) required.
* … although standard settings will work for all installations.

Before you continue with the configuration we strongly recommend to read the FAQ bellow to make sure we are on the same page terminology-wise.

  • In order to configure the plugin you will need to have an account with Micropayment system, for example
    Video: API key.

ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

What is Bitcoin ?

Well, it’s money. Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and a payment system.
Read more on the Wikipedia:

What the Bitcoin Faucet is for ?

Bitcoin Faucet owner exchanges traffic for small fracture of bitcoin or other cryptocurrency.
Visitor navigates to your faucet page, sees the banners (maybe eventually clicks), and gets rewarded for it.
Crypto-currencies allow you to use really tiny units like Satoshi, so for both visitor and faucet owner it’s win-win situation.
Bitcoin Faucet on Wikipedia

Does it require Bitcoin Node to run ?

Nope, all transactions are done via cryptocurrency micropayment platforms (like, that’s why it is so fast and cheap.

Is Bitcoin Faucet profitable ?

We guess it is, otherwise thousands of people wouldn’t run Bitcoin Faucets, right? 😉
Try to google “bitcoin faucet” and see for yourself. Now you can operate Bitcoin Faucet on WordPress too.
Considering you will find plenty of “Bitcoin Faucet” websites, gotta warn you: Don’t worry about the competition – it actually forms the market, and so far the demand grows faster than supply.

What do I need to run Bitcoin Faucet ?

  • You obviously will need a Bitcoin Wallet to operate with crypto-currencies, if you don’t have one already, we recommend
    BlockChain or
  • You will need get an account with a micro-payment system (we support all major, is recommended).
    It is free, if you are not sure what “MicroPayment System” is, keep reading.
  • Considering you are running WordPress website, you probably already have Google Captcha (reCaptcha) account, if not – you will be offered to get one. Free also.
  • You probably will need an account with ad network(s).
    We recommend Anonymous Ads, because it pays for impressions, and does in it Bitcoins, but you can use any suitable (Coin Madia is also good. You may consider PopUnder income as well). These not only free, but paying you, right? 😉

What is Bitcoin Wallet ?

It is a stand-alone software or web service, allowing you to handle cryprocurrency (send, receive, exchange). Again we recommend BlockChain or CoinBase (think of them as of “PayPal for Bitcoins”), but any will do.

What is MicroPayment Systems ?

MicroPayment Systems is a middle-tear between Bitcoin Faucet (or any other micro-payment thingie) and Bitcoin Wallet.
Usually reward in not big (well, 1 Satoshi is 0.00000001 of a Bitcoin), so if you pay the reward to the visitor directly, the commission will eat-up the reward.
Instead, you pay to the MicroPayment Systems once (usually minimal payment is in the range of 50 cents or so ) , and the MicroPayment Systems keeps track of the Bitcoin Faucet user activity, and pays user automatically when the accumulated rewards amount is big enough to transfer.

How do I fund my Faucet ? (tough one! 🙂 )

Unpleasant part, huh? Yes, in order to dispurse rewards (and re-capitalize on the ads of the faucet page) you have to put some crypto-money. Funding is conducted via micropaiment system deposit.
So, you have several options.
* If you have crypto-currency, just send it to your micropayment deposit address.
* If you have fiat money (and you probably do =) ), look for online exchange services, like Exchange PayPal to Satoshi
* If you using you may collect form faucets using your deposit address.
It will give you enough satoshi to start your own faucet.
You also may send your visitors to (example), so they are going to collect satoshi for you.

How do I gain traffic ?

Well, the traffic – it’s what Bitcoin Faucet is for. So:
* Rewarded visitors may bookmark your Bitcoin Faucet and return later.
* Your Bitcoin Faucet comes with referral system to encourage people to share links to you.
* MicroPayment Systems have so called “Rotators” (like this one) – look it up in the MicroPayment Systems configuration.
* There are hundreds (actually, more like thousands) websites listing Bitcoin Faucets (living on the referral commission too), even if you don’t contact the owners – most likely your Bitcoin Faucet will be listed eventually.
* Plenty of people do search for Bitcoin Faucets to get rewards.

Is Bitcoin Faucet absolutely secure ?

Right, we are talking the money here. Well, nothing is “absolutely” secure, but to our best knowledge the Bitcoin Faucet for WordPress is as secure as it gets, no less secure than other Bitcoin Faucet software. We’ve jumped through a lot of hoops to increase security, so just use your common sense and you will be fine.
BTW: MicroPayment systems provide extra level of security, so don’t be lazy and configure them too. It’s easy, if you are able to run WordPress website, you surely can figure it out. =)

Does the Bitcoin Faucet run on free hosting?

It depends. Bitcoin Faucet is a thing to bring plenty of traffic by definition, so some day you may consider to upgrade.
Also, some free hostings do not allow external connections, and the plugin needs it to talk to selected micro-payment system.
If you want to stay on absolutely free fosting, consider Simple Bitcoin Faucets Plugin.
You may want to watch this video first.

Any other limitations?

Actually, yes. This plugin requires PHP 5.4+ to operate. You probably already have newer version (PHP 5.4.0 was released on 01 March 2012).
If your PHP is older than 5.4 (5.3-something)- upgrade it, usually it is done via your hosting control panel in one click.
No worries, don’t rush to check your PHP version – if you were able to activate the plugin – you good to go =)

Is Bitcoin Faucet for WordPress available in foreign languages?

Right now the front-end has been translated into Russian. Feel free to translate it with Loco Translator, and let us know – we will gladly include your translation into the package.
