About BeyondFaucet.com (formerly testnet-faucet.com)
BeyondFaucet.com is a website where users can get free cryptos for many different coins. It was created as a way to give crypto users a platform to easily claim small amounts of different coins without having to go through much hassle or minimum withdraw limits. Originally, BeyondFaucet was known as the Testnet Faucet before it merged into BeyondFaucet was created to help developers claim free testnet coins from multiple networks since 2020.
A little history...In 2020, I was looking for some testnet Litecoin to test an application I was developing that supports Litecoin. Now, I know I could've used regtest, but I wanted to use the testnet as I needed to see live transactions on the explorers. I looked for a faucet that would give you testnet Litecoin, but I couldn't find one, and then I realized I could mine some tLTC using one of my Antminer L3++'s. I mined so many testnet Litecoins that when I finished testing my project, I didn't know what to do with them. I held onto them for a few months and then when another project came around, I remembered how difficult it was to get testnet coins for coins other than Bitcoin. Remembering this, I thought about starting my own testnet faucet, one that will support multiple coins as it seems that coins are neglected in regard to being readily available for testing on their testnets from people mining them up and holding them for unknown motives. After a month of working on developing the faucets, I launched testnet-faucet.com which originally had 3 testnet coins available (Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin). Today, my faucet has sent over 250,000 transactions and numerous coins to developers so that they may test their applications and I'm really grateful for all the support I had along the way. From people helping supply testnet coins for other networks to people leaving a kind message.
Now, in 2023, the Testnet Faucet has merged into BeyondFaucet as I thought about the possibility of opening up a mainnet faucet for smaller/lower-valued coins for crypto users, new and old, to claim coins they may not have known about which have different purposes so they can explore more of the crypto ecosystem. Doing this while still providing testnet coins to developers.
