Hello everyone, I am impressed by the way team manage to find a niche market. “No one need a new Monero”, privacy module has been used wisely.
At first I don’t know how to get some PRV. Seem that team still hasn’t provided enough approach to distribute/sell/airdrop the chain coin.
As a blockchain enthusiasm, I have no hesitate building a website called incfaucet.org to make the chain more viral.
I found that Incognito provides an incredibly small amount of fee, around 1e-9 PRV for each transaction. With 0.00001 PRV faucet, users can use this amount for their whole life. They can experienced most of chain’s services for almost free (as long as PRV < 100$). In an economic talking, 0.00001 PRV brings you no commercial benefit.
The idea of incfaucet.org is not just give away some PRV. It’s a two way pool. Current PRV owners contribute a small amount of PRV (ex: 0.1 PRV), then pool will in charge of airdropping their contribution to the new users.
Why PRV owners have to do that? First, contribution amount is just a small figure. Second, they would want Incognito to be more popular. As Incognito becomes more popular, their PRV would increase in price. This is no man job, it must be community.
I acknowledge that airdropping feature would be attacked by someone who tries to generate many address and faked ip. I am trying my best to provide a solid rule. Strict rule will damage honest user experience. The most critical factor for this kind of attack is “Is this worth it?”. It this worth to get 1 PRV by making 10000 request. Let’ s the community answer this question. The only way to prevent being attack is “attacker find no economic advantage or it isn’t worth to attack”.
Some of my rule:
- Restricted number of request for each address
- Restricted number of request for each IP
- Restricted number of token distributed per day or hour
1. What privacy problem are you solving?
Incognito Mainnet Faucet, airdrop a small amount of PRV for new user
2. What is the solution?
Building a simple faucet website
3. Which solutions do people resort to because this doesn’t exist yet?
4. Who are you?
I’m a blockchain and start-up enthusiasm
5. Why do you care?
Bringing blockchain close to end-user
6. What’s your plan? What’s your schedule?
|27 May 2020||Create a faucet website|
|30 May 2020||Add protection method against mass airdrop|
I don’t have many ideas about what to do next. Looking for help and feedback
7. What’s your budget?
|v0.1.0 Website Development (already)||1000 PRV||1||1000 PRV|
|v0.2.0 Protection Method (already)||1000 PRV||1||1000 PRV|
Website hosting cost 500 PRV each month
I will keep this site running for at least 3 months (without PRV payment) to see if it useful or not
8. Is there an existing conversation around this idea?
9. Is there anything else you would like the community to know?
