It is an emotional message that we left the founders of the Faucet Coinpot platform. As a reminder, Coinpot is a cryptocurrency distribution platform (BTC, BCH, LTC, DASH and DOGE).
Read for yourself…
Why are we closing down?
The quick answer to this is that we no longer have the time or resources to maintain the faucets at the quality level you have become used to.
The longer answer...
The faucets and CoinPot have always really been run as a hobby, something we do for fun and learning outside our families and day jobs. We have always tried to earn enough from advertising revenue that we could pay for the servers and hosting costs and then pay out everything else to you as faucet claims and referral commission. This policy meant that our faucets gained a reputation as the highest paying faucets around and grew very quickly.
Added to this, the success of CoinPot with its games/mining/challenges/VIP etc meant that we were spending more and more of our spare time improving/fixing things. Unfortunately the biggest time drain has become fighting fraud and identifying cheaters. This is neccesary as otherwise our extremely small profit margins would be wiped out overnight!
During the last few years we have built an incrediby complex and successful fraud engine that analyses users claiming patterns and looks for fraud/bot usage. This grows constantly with new techniques to fight the bad guys! We are extremely proud of how this fraud fighting works - and it is this part of the CoinPot system that will live on in the future...
Starting from next month we are embarking on a major new project which we cannot reveal too much information about right now. It is within the crypto world but totally unrelated to faucets, and it will be built around the CoinPot fraud engine and all the knowledge we have accumulated from this over the years.
This means however that we just cannot justify the time we spend on CoinPot and the faucets any more. They will be closed down completely by the end of February as we have detailed above.
We will remain big believers in cryptocurrency and will continue to closely follow the faucet world. And we hope we can stay friends with everyone that we have met on this amazing journey since 2014!
Best of luck
The CoinPot team
