What Is ethereumfaucet.info

This section describes what is ethereumfaucet.info - mining ether with browser.

What Is ethereumfaucet.info? Back in 2018, ethereumfaucet.info offered a Web browser based Ethereum miner, that allows you to join a mining pool and use your browser to generate hashes for the pool.

Today, ethereumfaucet.info runs as a Ethereum Classic Faucet giving out free Ether money using income from ads placed on the Website. Here is what it promises:

We're giving away ETH every 60 minutes!

    100 gwei = 0.000,000,100 ETH (30%) 
    200 gwei = 0.000,000,200 ETH (65%) 
    500 gwei = 0.000,000,500 ETH (3%) 
  1,000 gwei = 0.000,001,000 ETH (1.9%) 
  4,000 gwei = 0.000,004,000 ETH (0.099%) 
400,000 gwei = 0.000,400,000 ETH (0.001%)

If there are 100 request in the queue, you need to wait for about 4 days to get probably 200 gwei, which is 0.000,000,2 Ether, or $0.008, not even a penny.

Here is what I tried as a test.

1. Go to http://ethereumfaucet.info.

2. Enter my Ether address in the ads section.

3. Click continue. I see an error: "Invalid input response". If you are lucky, your request will be queued to receive some free Ether money.

Actually, ethereumfaucet.info is as part of Ethereum faucet network, running the same free faucet software.

When I requested for free Ether on the second faucet, http://www.etcfaucet.info, I was lucky to get 50,000 gwei, which is 0.000,050 Ether, or $0.20, not too bad.

But that Ether money is on hold at etcfaucet.info. I can withdraw it only if the balance reaches 0.006 Ether. In other words, I have to come this Website requesting free Ether money for more than 100 times to get paid.

So I made another request to get free Ether. But this time, I got the "You have already claimed in the last 60 minutes". Looks like I have to wait for 1 hour to make the second request.

So if I make 8 requests in 8 hours a day, I need to spend 12 days to accumulate 0.006 Ether, about $24.00, at etcfaucet.info to withdraw it and send it to my Ether address.

I don't know if I want to continue to play this with etcfaucet.info, it not only time consuming, but also facing constant bombardment of their ads.
