Before jumping in with big money I wanted to test my client with a few milicoins (?).
The faucet at http://peercoinfaucet.com is empty and has a gigantic backlog.
I’d recommend not to keep the backlog if there are no coins left, since most people will probably forget about it anyway.
Is there another faucet? Couldn’t find a working one over google.
I’m not sure about other working faucets, but if you happen to have a reddit account with some karma, you can get a tiny amount from the altcointip bot. You can register with the bot and then send it a message with “+redeem ppc”.
Or if you post a PPC address, I’m sure someone would send you a small amount
If somebody could send me like 0.01 PPC would be nice. I’ll send you some Bitcoins in return.
But still, please modify the faucet and remote the long backlog, for other people
I think people don’t want to donate when they see a list of 1000+ others getting some coins before potential new people would get some.
Thanks a lot! If you give me your Bitcoin address I’ll send you some as return
That’s the problem, it’s very difficult. I would reduce the amount you get on the faucet and stop keeping a list if it’s empty.
Also, I’ve requested coins there and after that I saw it’s empty. So now I’m on the list but I already got some coins to test / don’t need any from there.
[quote=“willywithcoinnode, post:15, topic:2751”]If you need testnet coins, you can easily mine them yourself with your cpu or gpu, because the PoW diff is very low.
I can send you some testnet coins if you post your addresses here.[/quote]
i guess that raises another question - you seem to be indicating that all peercoin addresses are equivalent - say i post a peercoin address that accepts the “real” coin - i have one that peerunitty created - and this same address is capable of accepting both real and test coins ? or would i need to generate a special testnet address ?
