A crypto faucet is an app or a website that distributes small amounts of cryptocurrencies as a reward for completing easy tasks. They’re given the name “faucets’’ because the rewards are small, just like small drops of water dripping from a leaky faucet
In Solana blockchain for ease of development on Devnet and Testnet we need to use these tools to get SOL tokens into our wallet to perform transactions on the Solana blockchain
Currently on Solana Devnet we can transfer 2 SOL per 10 sec to wallet
Currently on Solana Testnet we can transfer 1 SOL per 10 sec to wallet
Our idea of a Solana faucet ?
We have developed a Solana faucet chrome extension using Angular framework and bootstrap to create a modern interactive UI
We have use the Solana web3 library airdrop endpoint to make the core functionality of the tool
How to download the tool ?
How to use the tool ?
Click on “Add to Chrome” Button
Click on “Add extension” Button
Click on puzzle icon, then click on pin icon to pin extension to top
Click on the extension logo
- Enter the wallet address of your Devnet or Testnet wallet
- Enter the number of tokens to transfer max 2
- Select the network from dropdown
- Click on the airdrop button
After successful airdrop message will be shown
You can check in your wallet for sol transfer
Sometimes due to high traffic these kind of errors will be displayed, you need reopen Solana Extension and try again to circumvent this error
Upcoming Projects ?
We are planning on creating an extension to create your very own crypto currency for learning purposes on developer network and to understand how cryptocurrencies are made and distributed e.g., Bitcoin, Solana etc.
