5 Bitcoins for free! On this date July 3rd 2010


Hey steemians I thought some of you might be interested in this Way Back Machine Web Archive from July 3rd 2010 (8 years ago today). It was a Bitcoin faucet by Gavin Andresen. He wanted Bitcoin to be successful so he was giving away 5 Bitcoins from the faucet back then. Worth just pennies back in 2010 but at Bitcoin’s all time high, those 5 free Bitcoins would be worth almost $100,000 USD!!!! Wow!


Here is link to the web archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20100703032414/http://freebitcoins.appspot.com/

But wait, you can get Gridcoin for Free! (Today!)

What is Gridcoin (GRC)?
Gridcoin, like Bitcoin, is a cryptocurrency but unlike Bitcoin the “miners” are rewarded Gridcoins by using their computing power to help scientific research. See links below to get started.

The official gridcoin research wallet can be found here: https://www.gridcoin.us

But if you don’t want to do research or stake and just get some free Gridcoin then there is a mobile wallet (for Android or iPhone) that does include gridcoin as one of its currencies and it is called Coinomi: https://coinomi.com

If you want you can even store and receive Gridcoins in paper wallet

So if you are interested in having some Gridcoin and are not ready to commit to investing or researching to earn Gridcoins then the mobile or paper wallet is probably the easiest option.

Once you have your Gridcoin address you can get some free Gridcoin from these faucets every 24 hours here:
https://gridcoinstats.eu/faucet.php
https://gridcoin.ch/faucet.php (this gets emptied fast so not always reliable)

Also you can join the Gridcoin discord and there is a wallet bot that gives Gridcoins every 18 hours. A wallet is created for you when you join. This one seems to pay the most. You can read about it in this post by @delta1512 here: https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@delta1512/gridcoin-discord-bot-announcement

I also want Gridcoin to succeed so if you put your Gridcoin wallet address in the comments section I will sent you 5 free Gridcoins! (limit up to 60 GRC, the amount I have accumulated from the discord faucet)

Maybe one day (8 years!LOL) those 5 Gridcoins may be able to buy you a car. Who knows!
Cheers!
ian

Thank you!

just so everyone knows: we have been giving away 5 FREE Gridcoin at every Gridcoin Community Hangout for MONTHS now!

come hang with us: https://steemit.com/gridcoin/@peppernrino/gridcoin-community-hangout-065

·

Good to know @peppernrino! Thanks for the comment. Are the Hangouts always held on Saturdays?

·
·

indeed!

they are now held in a new Mumble channel provided by a Gridcoin community member. we have abandoned Discord for several reasons discussed in previous... and upcoming hangouts.

i might still pipe the sound in, but participation will be limited to text via Discord through the IRC bridge on Freenode #gridcoin-mumble. users can also participate through DLive: https://dlive.io/@peppernrino & Twitch:

@fkinglag said he will be attending, and will be streaming to

Hope I am not to late either , although I see you might have reached your max of 60 but S5ga5qHFPTcAg7F6v6Vo9PXqFsJpM8VHi4 is an address I would appreciate some free Gridcoin's this 4th of July. Thank You , even if you are dry and tapped out that was a great post and great read. I look at Gridcoin in the same way and think its just a matter of time. Literally last year July 3rd,4th,5th,6th the value was 8x what it is currently and there is nothing stopping it from being 800x that value in the near future. Thank you again.

Thank you , just saw 5 grc come in. Happy 4th of July

@jamezz 5 Gridcoins sent to your wallet. Transaction ID: d042c52946750b7e9404e41ae545bf714ed773367bb663efbd26035b16a83f7c

I do hope people will start using Gridcoin. I think the Coinomi wallet is great as it is on your mobile phone and you can easily send and receive GRC. I’m using the Coinomi wallet to send all these Gridcoins to the people who have been leaving their wallet address in the comments. Cheers! Ian

Great opportunity to get gridcoin more widely spread! Thank you :)
