Roflfaucet

Bitcoin faucets give out free bitcoin in return for pageviews bearing ads. It’s difficult to make money from them, as ad revenues is quite small, but for advertising something it;’s a very cheap and possibly free way to do it, and to reach the exact market segment we need.

We need:

  • Paying customers for satoshihost.com
  • “Free” customers for the free version of satoshihost.com
  • Volunteers for the clickforcharity.net program
  • geeks, promoters, coders, volunteers, sponsors etc for everything

Faucets are generally pretty boring, you just see a load of ads, some tricks to get extra page views, and maybe a timer to keep you on the site longer. You earn a few satoshi. Roflfaucet is different.

  • Cartoons and other funny pics interspersed between the ads, make people more likely to see the ads and maybe click one.
  • A short (not more than 30 sec) video clip (funny) instead of a timer
  • Video clip also contains answer to anti-bot puzzle.
  • Option to donate reward to the clickforcharity fund

Rough Costings

A low rate PTC is around 30c per 1000.
A popular site like freebitco.in pays $0.0018 per claim (4 sat at time of writing).

30c/1000 = 0.03 or

.0018 x1000 = $1.80

It is 6x cheaper to run a faucet than to use PTC advertising.
