Hi there guys
Today, it’s always a PITA to get testnet tokens (like Goerli ETH). To the degree that, personally, I ended up “buying” (!!) some Goerli ETH to someone who had a bunch… to save time and preserve my mental health
The problem is that faucets are being emptied by bots all the time so faucet providers restrict in extreme ways how many tokens can be withdrawn because, besides a google captcha, they don’t know how to fight bots.
This seems like something that’s right in Gitcoin’s alley! We could add a faucet feature to gitcoin to help devs access the most “popular” testnet tokens without having to wait days to amass barely 1 testnet ETH
Basically, the faucet would be “Gitcoin passport protected”. Each passported user could withdraw up to 10 testnet ETH per month for example, immediately, no questions asked
Given the amount of devs on Gitcoin, I think it would be very successful and would on-board many devs on Gitcoin passport. Wdyt?
