Faucet will be phased out ?

Featured Comment

Well you guys know the faucet right ? Our best friend when it comes to no balance and we use it ? And also we claim it to try to hit the giveaways when our balamce is out or when a depo is incoming ?

Well now the sats have been reduced from 100 》50 》20

Well in this stage do you think that faucet is being phased out ? Well imo maybe yes I am not too sure since faucet allows new players to check out the site.

yeah it seems to be that way. 

first it is faucet (and avatar) that growth with level every 2 min. and no limit to claim amount per day

then it's reduced to 100 (10 for some user) and no growth

then it's limited to 20 times a day for a while, before revert back to no limit

then it's reduced to 50 and have a limited of 20 times a day

now it's reduced to 20 and still have a limited of 20 times a day

while they add other "free" money (such as rainbot and pay per post, and twitter giveway and happy hour)

imo i don't agree with that, faucet should be the main thing that draw free people to stick to the site til deposit. one of the reason because it is consistent 

my guess is there's someone who abuse the faucet so they change the free model to make it easier to moderated

Well your right it shouldn't be the main thing but it is like a free trial like at the start of every month you get from Netflix or sites like that

I think that it should've been gone a long time ago. Really, faucet is useless. The intention of faucet was only to let users try out the website, but nobody really understands it and that's why Stake should've disable that feature. There was a time when it was said that everyone would get a small percentage every day from what they wagered. That would be a really nice idea. There was a screenshot of it and if for example you'd bet every day and claim your "faucet" daily, you'd get 0.5x of that day's wagered amount. That was the best idea ever, but unfortunately it wasn't added yet. I think that it is only for some VIP members or something, but I'm not sure how you can be a VIP.

when they add a new coin it seems they reduce the btc faucet maybe its to compensate the new addition if you think about how many users old and new use the faucets all day everyday for multiple coins it makes sense to reduce the amount of the most expensive coin in a way they are offering it up as a different coin , lets not forget its a casino where you gamble money , i know a lot of people come to just use the faucets but  most of us actually deposit , i don't know any casinos that giveaway free cash when you walk through the doors , they offer rewards ,this should be no different .

Ironically the faucet is a big problem that contributes to the growth of the passive beggars and general unwanted community members. The biggest complaint these days are those particular people. So putting measures in place to help protect the quality of the community is necessary.

The faucet should in theory decrease the amount of beggars, becuase they are getting free money from it?

I hope they don't delete the faucet.

Why not? There should be a reason not to. It is a big problem with faucet that decreases stake's quality, so in order for it not to end up being removed, there should be a good reason. People can always get money from PPP or Giveaways or even Rainbot (even higher than Faucet and amounts that you can actually do something with them).

The higher the btc prize goes, the less the faucet will be. That's how its been always and tbh faucet is not needed for 80% of the gamblers on stake...

I guess that the people using it is even lower than 20%. Mostly, people don't come here just for 50 satoshis to play with, even if it was 100 or 1000, you can't really do that much with it and nobody should do much with it as it is only to test stake's features and games.

imo the most important thing about faucet is consistency, it can be low (and it should be) the amount shouldn't higher than 100 sat every 5 minutes (so the 50 sat every 3 minutes is acceptable) but it should have enough for people to stick to the site for a while (e.g. 3-6 hours of non-stop claim on delay) that meant if it is 3 minutes delay it should have claim amount at 60-120 times a day

 it is unrelated to how generous the site is (or how much they give), i know those giveaway are given much higher value than the faucet but it is inconsistent (unless you count the forum post as consistent, but then it would lead to spam on the board if everyone just post for it)

i believe faucet would lead to a less lose "free" money from the site compared to rain and giveaway (if you think about the withdraw point of 200k sat, even at 100 sat it is exactly 0.0495% when you factored the 1% house edge, that's one out of 2021 faucet claim will reached that point, assume people don't play more and just cash out) which should much harder compared to the rain, forum sat, and giveaway amount. thus the site will lose less money while give more people the chance to try and have the confidence in site

i understand the rainbot and the forum sat drive activity in both chat and forum, but it also come with spam and passive begging (which you can still see from time to time even with hard work of the mod/admin, i also see a copy paste low effort on the forum every so often)

since this is about people who yet to deposit to considered deposit to the site or have confidence in the site and/or for people to hang out on the site to increased  activity, which should be the same reason as rainbot (while rainbot likely to attract spammer/begging) this is unrelated to gambler who already play on deposit and have some balance (which rainbot is related, but it is still insignificant amount)

so in short:

1. it drive site activity while doesn't affected chat/forum 

2. it have lower chance to reached withdraw point than the giveaway/rain/forum sat (which is good for the site because they'll pay less)

3. it is consistent, and free. so anyone can grab it and play on site without bother other (also, since it is consistent. it would also drive people who claim it to play to chat, rather than close the site when they have zero balance and the faucet is on a day cooldown)

imo what decreased stake quality is rainbot and pay per post, not faucet

With faucet gone the appeal is drastically reduced. However in light of what Dan said about passive beggars, I'd rather see it gone with (hopefully) most of the passives than have it stay and chat being filled with useless people chatting useless annoying nonsense.

I honestly don't care for it much, Technically most users who claim faucet are abusing it since it really is only for testing purposes. The faucet is not their for people to claim when they are out of balance even tho that is what everyone uses it for. It also causes people to talk about it in chat and complain because they claimed the faucet to much in a day and cant anymore. I would not mind seeing it gone. :) Stake has a lot of ways to earn some extra crypto no need for a faucet when you have all that.

Back in the day I used to pass some time chatting at PD and playing their faucet.  However, today it is just not worth it.  The captchas have gotten insanely hard and half the time don't even work right.  I realize in many countries .002 USD may be a useful amount of money, but you are not likely to get to the minimum level of withdrawal from the faucet.  At this point, I think there are much better ways to get some satoshi onto Stake than to line Google's pockets by doing captchas.  Maybe just give everyone one claim a day or something and be done with it.

I wont miss the faucet if it goes, nor will I miss the constant whining about it in chat.

Technically, Its better to have the faucet phased out.

I dont see any sense on using it anymore.
