Better Promoted Donations

Dec. 2, 2016

The ClamSpeeches used in donations to the faucet are randomly chosen to be used in payout transactions. As of payout #9000, we've been tracking which donations are "promoted" this way in each payout. Now, you can see how many times each donation has been promoted via the Donate page.

Each donation also has its own page which displays the payouts that have promoted it. Just click on a donation's ClamSpeech on the Donate page to see details about it. The list of promoting payouts will automatically update, so you can watch as a donation is promoted. Donations of higher amounts are promoted more frequently than others.*

  • Shortly before this update, we fixed a bug in the donation-choosing algorithm which caused donations of lower amounts to be promoted more frequently instead. We hope that this error caused more joy than sorrow.
