I'm building a project with bitcoins and want to test it with testnet. However, I don't have any testnet bitcoins, and despite the difficulty being less than 100 usually, I still haven't been able to mine a block on my PC (CPU only) after a day. Is there anywhere I could get just some small amount of testnet bitcoins for testing?
Looks like you can get some here: https://onchain.io/bitcoin-testnet-faucet
The term "faucet" has been used for quite some time for a site giving away small quantities of coins for free. If the above link ever stops working, a web search for "bitcoin testnet faucet" may find a different site.
1The important part of this answer is the term "faucet"; even if a specific source ceases working, a web search as suggested should be able to find another source of testnet coins. Nov 18, 2016 at 0:35

it's trying to detect adblockers and fails badly by overblocking non-blockers :D– vv01fDec 20, 2017 at 9:47
