Faucet History

Below is what was posted on the main page prior to the emptying of the faucet.

This information is only for historical purposes.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT attempt to claim from the faucet, especially using the non-error-checking `ClaimAyeAye` contract.

It will only eat the gas you pay, since the faucet is now empty.

Dozens have tried claiming after the faucet ran out, and their precious ether has been lost.

HISTORICAL: How can I use the faucet?

Do not use the faucet, it is empty!

Since we don't have the original contract source code, you can only use the faucet directly using a custom ABI.

The faucet only dispenses one coin at a time.

HISTORICAL: What if I want more than one coin?

There are two contracts (both from goatishduck) that will use the faucet in a loop to claim multiple coins.


DO NOT USE THIS CONTRACT!!!! It will only burn your gas without returning an error, the faucet is empty!

ClaimAyeAye (from tschoerv) will grab "n" # of coins in a gas-efficient matter. This contract has no safety checks and will fail silently if the faucet is empty, but it is cheaper and more gas-optimized.

The contract is here, the function to call is "grab" and you must enter an amount to request. You have to know how to connect to etherscan to grab coins.

Request too many coins and it'll go over the gas limit and not fit in the block. More gas = costs more ETH, too, and it can quickly get prohibitively expensive.

Experimentally we've found requesting 2500-5000 coins per request seems to work, but at gas prices above 10 Gwei and current ethereum prices those coins will cost you hundreds of dollars.

Use with caution. The faucet will run out soon, and the contract doesn't check if the faucet is empty.

Do not use, the faucet is empty!


WrappedAyeAyeCoin (from goatishduck) is primarily an ERC-20 wrapper for AyeAyeCoin.

The contract (here) also has a `claimAndWrap` function that will claim coins from the faucet in a batch and then wrap them immediately.

It does check if the faucet is empty, first, so it's safer to use. It will use more gas, however.

HISTORICAL: Why can't I see or trade my AyeAyeCoin?

Remember, this coin is ancient. It predates the ERC-20 token standard by over a year!

To make AyeAyeCoin compatible with Uniswap and other platforms, you need to wrap the AyeAyeCoin with an ERC-20 wrapper.

The community (and liquidity) have consolidated around goatishduck's wrapper.

This is a trustless wrapper that turns your AyeAyeCoin into $WAAC (Wrapped AyeAyeCoin) and lets you trade it and move it around.

You can unwrap to vanilla AyeAyeCoin at anytime.

This contract is not audited but the code is on etherscan.

It's a little complicated to wrap your existing AyeAyeCoin, so some might prefer to directly claim (from the faucet) and wrap in one go (using the claimAndWrap function in the wrapper contract).

This will be more expensive but it makes your AyeAyeCoin instantly tradeable.

HISTORICAL: How much is left in the faucet?

The faucet function now returns "Sorry, the faucet has entirely run dry." *tear*


BE CAREFUL what transactions you send and sign. This historic coin takes some skill to handle, and people may try to scam you.

Always be careful when interacting with contracts via etherscan, look before you ape!

There is no official website and the creator is no longer involved with this coin.

There is another unrelated coin on solana, and likely to be copy-cats if interest increases.

ayeAyeCoin love! One coin for you!
