How often are payments made?

Payments are made every minute to optimize server performances.

What do I do if I wasn’t paid? Did you use an exchange account?
  • If you used an exchange account:
    • The exchange may have a minimum deposit limit, this limit would usually be higher than the small amount claimed on the Faucet, therefore small balances not surpassing the lower limit would not be showing on your exchange address.
    • If your exchange account has a minimum block confirmation number, the transaction will show up until the required amount of blocks, specified by the exchange, is confirmed, this confirmation could take hours. Depending on the amount of blocks to be confirmed. A block is mined on average, every 1 minutes (this time could vary per block, since this is an average time).
Error Message: Due to faucet abuse, proxy are not allowed

Since VPNs and Proxies are some of the tools that could be used to maliciously use the Faucet, we decided to prohibit the use short term, but since we value privacy we’ll be implementing a better solution in the near future.

Not able to claim after 20 hours of your previous claim?

Actual rules of the Faucet are that there is only 1 public IP address per user, unfortunately some internet service providers recycle public IP addresses so there could be a case in which two different Faucet users have the same IP.
Interim Solution: Change of network and try to access the faucet again.

  • Use your mobile data to claim on the Faucet.
  • Try using a different network when claiming on the Faucet.
Error Message: There is already a registered account with your IP in the system

This issue happens for the same reason stated in the previous answer, try doing the same: Change of network and try to register again.

  • Use your mobile data to claim on the Faucet.
  • Try using a different network when claiming on the Faucet.
Can I check my payment or Bonus Rounds history?

Yes, under the history tab, it is possible to review your claiming and Bonus Round history.

Why does my star counter get reset to zero?
  • Whenever you miss a reward period (20 to 30 hours between claims), the star count gets reset back to zero.
  • When the star counter reaches five stars, a bonus round is activated that when claimed, resets the star counter back to zero.
How does the referral system work?
