Target 1337.0 WOW
Funded 100.0 %
20 individual contributions Details...

1337.37 WOW Raised (0.36999999999989086 WOW past goal!)

0 WOW Paid out (0.0%)

1337.37 WOW Available for payout :-)

Donation address:


More people would be attracted by Wownero if it had a non-profit, open-source and reliable faucet.

How much?

Wownero is around $0.14 at the moment. I estimate at least 10 hours of work for this


A faucet with a main address for donations. Donations go to the faucet's balance, and every time one completes the faucet, he receives a part of the balance, clamped between a minimum and a maximum value.


  • Coding the actual faucet: 1000 wow
  • Take necessary steps to avoid repeated actions by bots: 337 wow


Wownero will have its non-profit faucet, to give peeps small amounts of WOW so they can tip memes.

Why you?

I developed , as well as and the defunct WowBux 2.

What about bots and automated faucet submitting?

This is the biggest issue with a faucet. Protecting from bots can be hard, especially when privacy is paramount. I currently have some ideas:

  • Requiring calculation of hashes before submitting faucet (pretty similar to cryptomining)
  • Using hCaptcha for captchas
  • Using self-hosted captcha (not as strong as hCaptcha)
  • Using ReCaptcha (This is very bad for privacy)
  • Requiring a Wownero account, using oAuth
  • Requiring a Google account, using oAuth (This is very bad for privacy)

Feel free to suggest more or to criticize some of these ideas.

bugbud 2022-02-15 12:00 It takes so long to mine solo it would be nice to have a faucet link for miners that have mined for awhile but have yet to find a block. A link in the mining client to a miners faucet would be fun. A way to reward people solo mining on machines with less likelihood of seeing a block for awhile. reply
bugbud 2022-02-15 11:55 I like the idea of pointing people to a faucet for Wownero. reply
supdood 2021-12-31 11:56 Seems like OAuth(authy app?) would be a simple solution that primes users for basic 2fa.
Kinda like a non KYC exchange we all love and use.
