SLP Faucet Example
This project is an example of an SLP faucet website. The site allows users to enter their SLP address and the server-side process will send the user's address the token quantity specified within the environment variables (i.e., per
This faucet can service 450 uses per block (i.e., 25 txn limit/block x 18 addresses = 450). The server application allows the faucet admin to automatically distribute the tokens and BCH evenly across the first 18 addresses which are located on the
m/44'/245'/0'/0/X HD path, where
X is the address indecies 0 to 17. The admin can instantiate this automatic distribution by entering the
DISTRIBUTE_SECRET environment variable into the site's address input field.
NOTE: You will need to wait 1 block confirmation after distribution step before the faucet will be able to be used. This is because address selection is based on finding the first address with a unconfirmed balance of 0 BCH.
Use Electron Cash SLP or other SLP wallet to store faucet token & BCH coins, then use the mnemonic for that wallet for the faucet in the
Create a new
.envfile with the following environment variables:
MNEMONIC=______ TOKENID=_______ TOKENQTY=______ DISTRIBUTE_SECRET=______ PORT=______
Run the web app locally:
npm install node server.js
If you want to modify the source (i.e., the
*.ts files), you will need to rebuild using
tsc before running the app. TypeScript needs to be installed globally via
npm install -g typescript.
