- The honeyswap faucet gives about $3.5 ($50+ month) in HNY every 48 hours, next distribution is in a few hours https://faucet.1hive.org/#/
- Claiming the coins only takes 10 seconds once set up
- I am submitting this again revised/compressed as I forgot to include the faucet in the previous one and also uploaded it past midnight so it didn't get much visibility, some people here may very well need those $50+/month.
1. Setup an xdai wallet:
- Open Metamask, and select "Custom RPC" from the Network Dropdown.
- Choose "Custom RPC" Settings, add in the xDai network details and click Save:
- Network Name: xDai
- New RPC URL: https://rpc.xdaichain.com/
- ChainID (Optional): 100
- Symbol: xDai
- Block Explorer URL: https://blockscout.com/poa/xdai
2. Get 0.01 xdai for gas, (this covers almost 500 transactions).
- Use this faucet to get 0.01 xdai https://xdai-faucet.top/
The faucet currently uses a very "interesting" system to keep users from using multiple addresses to claim the reward without doing any KYC, and that system is done through one app called BrightID, you:
Install this app: https://www.brightid.org/
Set it up on your device with a name and a picture (Use a random name and a random picture, that's what I did)
Join what they call a "verification party", they run daily, find the schedules here: https://www.brightid.org/meet
Join only the scheduled parties, they will tell you what to do to verify, it involves turning on your webcam when they call your name (not your actual name, the random name you put on the app), should only be about 10 seconds or so, they apparently only want to see you are a "unique human" and not a bot, I did this with my lights off, sort of annoying, but only had it on for a few seconds when they called my name .
Your app status should change from unverified to verified.
4. Register & claim HNY:
- Enable account on the top right, (xdai network)
- Follow the instructions on screen to scan the QR code with the brightid app and get verified on the current address.
- Claim the XDAI every 48 hours, you'll get them automatically
5. Exchange HNY to xdai
- Either keep the HNY, or exchange it to xdai at https://honeyswap.org/#/
- You can check the HNY price at: https://info.honeyswap.org/token/0x71850b7e9ee3f13ab46d67167341e4bdc905eef9
Note: If you want to exchange it to mainnet ETH, follow the instructions at https://www.xdaichain.com/for-users/converting-xdai-via-bridge/moving-xdai-to-dai
