24th May 2023 - Back to our roots

We are thrilled to announce a significant update to the FreeDGB platform that will greatly enhance the claiming experience for our valued users. As part of our ongoing commitment to user satisfaction, we have made the decision to remove the shortlinks feature, bringing the faucet experience back to its original simplicity.

At FreeDGB, we understand the importance of providing a user-friendly environment for our community of cryptocurrency enthusiasts. We have listened to your feedback and recognized that shortlinks can be time-consuming and frustrating to navigate. With this in mind, we have taken action to streamline the claiming process and make it even easier for you to access your rewards.

By eliminating shortlinks, you can now enjoy a seamless claiming experience, just like it was before. Gone are the days of clicking through multiple links before reaching your desired content. We believe that this improvement will save you valuable time and effort, allowing you to focus on what matters most—claiming and enjoying your rewards hassle-free.

This decision is a testament to our dedication to our users. We strive to continually improve and optimize our platform based on your feedback and needs. We are excited about the positive impact this update will have on your claiming experience, and we remain committed to providing you with the best possible service.

Happy claiming from the FreeDGB faucet!

22nd September 2022 - Outage

It looks like we stumbled into an issue lately that caused us to now be able to perform payouts since the 3rd of September. The issue has since been rectified and will continue to be monitored for the next 24 hours to ensure everything is running smoothly again. A follow-up will be posted on Twitter regarding this, as well as the planned claim event to make up for the downtime.

4th February 2022 - Claim Event Incoming!

If you didn't already see the Tweet then you are in for a real treat. To make up for the outage caused by ExpressCrypto, we've decided to host a claims event. If you're not familiar with this, you can see from posts below that we have hosted these events at various times where every claim that took place received double the amount of DigiBye. Well, this time we're taking it a step further!

From the 14th of February to the 21st of February, all claims made through the faucet will earn the claimer 5x what the normal rate is. Yes, you heard right! FIVE TIMES! Keep an eye out for the counter that will appear on the day (to keep track of how long is left) and we hope you enjoy it.

1st February 2022 - Faucet Moved Successfully!

We have successfully moved the Faucet over to FaucetPay. We're just tidying up a few things, but promise to host some claims events soon to make up for it. Apologies to everyone for what happened with ExpressCrypto. Fingers crossed the same doesn't happen to FaucetPay.

3rd January 2022 - Claiming Issues

We are aware of an issue with claiming from the site. ExpressCrypto (our payment provider) are having problems and are working hard to get it resolved. Updates to follow.

16th December 2021 - Happy Holidays!

It has definitely been an interesting year for Crypto. There's been the ups, and as we're writing this, the downs, but it just proves that we can all pull together as a community. DigiByte is going strong, as it always will be.

2021 was a great success. The October event was one of the biggest and more successful we've held. We aim to do more of those next year to give as much back to the community as we can, so be sure to follow us on a Twitter and keep an eye on the news page here.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

7th August 2021 - Double Claims Event

If you saw our latest Tweet then you already know, but if you didn't, hold on to your seat.

The next double claim (2x) event will be starting on October the 1st and will be running for the entire month of October. This is the biggest event we have ever had and hope it will generate a lot of DigiByte awareness.

Keep an eye on our Twitter for updates closer to the time, and other DigiByte related tweets.

31st January 2021 - Claims Event

If you follow us on Twitter, you would have seen us mention a claims event. The date has been decided, and as before; it will be for 1 week.

We'll be commencing on Monday the 8th February and will add a countdown to the site closer to the date.

Keep an eye on Twitter for the announcement and other updates.

1st January 2021 - Happy New Year

If you've been following our twitter account you'll see that we have been cracking down on bots toward the end of 2020. This has meant that users are able to claim legitimately without people taking advantage. The reason we've been a bit quiet on the claim events front is that this took priority and we've been developing some AI to automatically take care of those bots. Now it's officially in place, we're going to be planning a lot more claims events this year, so hold on to your pants and get ready to claim some sweet DigiByte.

We also posted recently about adding more adverts to the page and being a bit harsher on those blocking ads. The reason for this is that we want to keep the faucet as a captcha-only claim. We don't like those ones where you have to click a shortlink, fill out your personal details and then get spammed; it's just not what we do. So that's why you'll see some new ads popping up on the screen.

In the middle of 2020 we upgraded our server infrastructure to cope with the amount of traffic we were getting. This seems to have made a huge difference and should be able to cope with the increase in traffic for a long time. As with previous upgrades, we'll make everyone aware beforehand and make it up to you with a claims event for the downtime.

That's all from us for now, Happy New Year!

28th May 2020 - First Claims Event!

The site has been successfully running for over 2 months now and we are happy with progress. Thank you to everyone who has returned after the change of provider and to repay your kindness; we're going to be hosting our first Double Claims Event from 1st June 2020 to 8th June 2020.

Keep an eye on our Twitter (@FreeDGB) for more info on this and for when it officially starts.

18th March 2020 - We're back!

After the temporary closure due to a previous provider, we're now back in full-swing with the thanks to ExpressCrypto.

While it's still in the early stages we are going to keep the claims at the current rate but after the teething problems have been ironed out we'll be back to holding very regular claim events.

Keep an eye on our Twitter for more.
