# SLP Faucet
This project is an example of an SLP faucet website.
# Faucet Capacity
This faucet can service 900 transactions per block (i.e., 50 txn limit/block x 18 addresses = 900). The faucet admin can automatically distribute tokens and the BCH (for paying transaction fees) evenly across the first 18 addresses located at the
m/44'/245'/0'/0/X HD path, where
X is an address index in the range 0 to 17. The admin can initiate this 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 i $ node server.js
# Build Source
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.
