4 Bonus InfiSecure tips for your Bitcoin Faucet

Here are 4 InfiSecure tips from our learnings after protection bitcoin faucets from bot attacks:

  1. Traditional techniques to block bots like blocking specific IP addresses, employing captchas or blocking proxy servers will not give you complete protection against online bots. Human mimicking bots still will be able to steal your bitcoins. These techniques are just ad-hoc solutions.

  2. If you don't have a SaaS-based active bot protection service, it's better to pay small amounts of money at shorter intervals than large amounts of money in longer intervals. This is due to the fact that some people will apply bots to claim their Bitcoins multiple times and override the site's timer. If your payout is larger, this will put you at a loss.

  3. We also advise you to pay out smaller amounts and give a higher referral reward. This will get more people referring visitors to your faucet than a higher payout for the visitor and a smaller referral reward.

  4. When putting your ad placements on your bitcoin faucet website page, it's best to make sure that they are as visible as possible. This means you should use large ad formats and place them next to where to the visitor will probably be looking.
