The Bitcoin Faucet is handling the slashdotting really well… except that I’m running out of coins to give away. over 5,000 have flowed out of the Faucet since I refilled it last night.
Any of you early adopters who generated tens of thousands of coins back in the early days, are you willing to send a few to the Faucet to be given away so more people can try out Bitcoin? I know that most of them are likely to be lost (I suspect there a lot of slashdot lookey-loos who won’t stick around long enough to spend their 5 bitcoins), but if that’s the case then that’ll just increase the value of your other bitcoins, anyway…
Fountain donation address is:
Depending on donations and how long the slashdotting lasts, I might have to start giving away bitnickels…
5 BTC seems like a lot these days, maybe the normal amount should be 1 or 2 BTC.
This is an important service so new users can at least get something if generating is too hard.
