Frequently Asked Questions
Bitcoin (BTC) is, in short, digital money not controlled by a central authority. This means it can be sent to anyone, anywhere, instantly, with small transaction fees.
A Bitcoin faucet is a website that gives users free Bitcoin in exchange for doing a small task, such as clicking on an ad, or solving a CAPTCHA.
Bitcoin faucets give new Bitcoin users a way to get involved with and receive Bitcoin instead of going through exchanges or other services to buy it. Also, there is some monetary incentive for the creator in terms of ad revenue.
1 Satoshi = 0.00000001 Bitcoin
A Satoshi is currently the smallest fraction of a Bitcoin. The unit was named "Satoshi" in homage to the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshis are to Bitcoin as pennies are to dollars.
Amounts less than 0.0001 BTC are generally not financially practical to send as the transaction fee is usually also around 0.0001 BTC. So, when you claim Bitcoins from SatoshiFaucet, they are sent to your wallet on faucetbox.com. Once you reach the payout threshold, they are sent to your address. This way, you can collect Bitcoins from SatoshiFaucet more efficiently without having to worry about fees.
