STEEM.GLOBAL Faucet Payout / Site Changes Being Implemented!

in steemglobal •  13 days ago

The seed node and faucet located at STEEM.GLOBAL is our networks only free STEEM faucet (as far as I know) and helps give people small amounts of STEEM to test out the platform.

Improving Scale-ability and Operating Costs

With the 200+ verified users the site was giving away 4.8 STEEM a day roughly or 144 STEEM a month not including paying my assistant on the site nor the monthly hosting.. it's grown into hands down my largest expense for STEEM based projects if operating costs are tallied up, with more costs likely to end up being realized as the site continues to grow.

Ads, Daily Logins and Continued Growth

In an attempt to slow down the hemorrhage of money the STEEM.GLOBAL site costs to operate: the hourly faucet is being converted to a daily faucet and the site will have to be visited while signed in to receive the free STEEM.

Advertisement via a-ads.com is also being implemented to offset costs.

I'd really hoped to avoid ads but the cost of running the site was something over 300 STEEM a month.. It's gotta be done as that is a small fortune regardless of income levels!

New STEEM Faucet Claiming Method

Faucet verified accounts will now have a "Free STEEM" menu item sub-menu item under the account menu as noted in the picture above. Once a day verified users will be able to claim using the form seen below:

Instead of just being automatically fed free STEEM as before now verified users will have to solve a captcha once a day while signed in, this should help prevent botting as well as deter folks from attempting to scam making multiple accounts is my hope.

While not completely switched over to this new method or implemented ads where needed it seems the site is operational. When converting over to this new method I've tried to avoid service interruptions whenever possible. I'll update this post once I'm confident the new method and ads are properly integrated.. Until then stay schwifty and take it easy folks!

Hmmm. Did it remove it from your account and not send? I have to fix that damn site. :/

it is not removed from the account, the steem is still there. 😂

Thanks for 0.001 Steem. Who knows, maybe one day Steem will be 1000x more valuable. In that case, you gave me the free coffee :)

·

At one point it was giving away 0.143 STEEM a day per user believe it or not...

·
·

Wow! I am still "red', but I got 0.001, that means I'm active? There is also eobot, it gives 0.004 per day in one click. I mean, it's nothing, but still, one click https://steemit.com/steemit/@alexs1320/how-to-earn-some-steem-every-day-for-free-one-click-only

I've yet to get the faucet security / filtering finished..!

hey friend @klye,,,, very informative information and
Super intelligent post, thank you for taking the time to create and share. love to read you post.but these kind of posts do make it easier, followed and upvoted.

·

I've neglected to do a proper "how to" on the site for a while now.. Once I finalize the new implementation and design stuff I may do a better post. :)

·
·

yes,i see,your great post.i wait for next post.best of luck friend @klye

Thanks for the update & operating the faucet!

·

You are most welcome man, It's been a learning experience for sure!

Hey there @klye! Do you know about Coinhive?
They offer a captcha-like service where website users have to mine a little Monero (XMR) in order to proceed.
I only experienced it as a user, seems fine to me.

·

Eh... Not a fan of forcing people to mine with innefficient CPU code.. But the heads up on coinhive is interesting! Thanks man!

·
·

You are welcome. Keep up the good work!

Mo money, Mo problems. Or in this case Steem. Gotta keep the plebs honest. Do what you gotta do my friend

·

LOL. Keep the plebs honest.. Love it. hahahahaa

Keep'er going man. Do the ads. 300 a month is nuts. I'll hit the site daily if that will help... almost at 1 STEEM

·

I don't want to close the service (as I have put so much time/money into it) but the way it was simply put was going to drown me financially if it increased 10x-100x userbase.

new development ...thanks to inform us...

so know I'll have to come back daily and solve a captcha for over a year to reach the minimum payout threshhold... hehe... I guess that isn't going to work

I really don't mean to complain (yet I do, oh the irony!), but I wanted to point out that that's a bit ridiculous.

Anyways, thanks for the free Steem. I had previously accumulated over 1.000 which I withdrew and running such a faucet has been incredibly generous of you @klye!

good news friend,,,
thanks for sharing

This looks cool
Lemme alert some newbies

And Klye continues to rock hard,...

reminds me faucet on eobot.
You want say, that now we have 0.001 daily after solving captcha instead of 0.001 hourly?

@kyle Just found your Steem.Global Faucet project and want to say that I really appreciate it! Can't wait to verify, and experience the first faucet deposit. I'll be re-posting and letting others know about this project! Way to go! Awesome!!

hello I added my picture yesterday and other info to be verified but have not been yet-advice?

Thanks for the STEEM faucet! I've accumulated 1 STEEM, but i'm unable to withdraw.

It spins like this forever...

My Steem.global account name is "ironsheld" (no "i")

@ironshield

Thanks for this piece of info. Very much needed.
