Transaction Processing

Every Burstcoin wallet acts as a node supporting transaction processing when connected to the network.

Transaction Types

Ordinary fund transfers and messaging are just two of the many types of transactions that can be made using Burstcoin.

Transaction Fees

Burstcoin uses a slot-based transaction fee structure.  The lowest fee is just .00735.

Offline Signing

Individual transaction can be signed on an offline device, transferred to a connected device and broadcast to the network using offline transaction signing.  This allows passphrases to be held offline and never exposed to the internet.

Burstcoin community faucet

This faucet is a service to provide the initial transaction fee necessary to activate a new account’s public key on the Burstcoin blockchain.  This is useful for meeting the unique requirements of Bittrex when making a transfer off of the exchange (transfer can only be made to accounts with an activated public key).  It can also be used to secure the transaction fee needed for setting the reward recipient for a new mining account.

Please note:  This faucet has a significant delay and can only be used once.  The transaction fee requested should arrive by the time your plot files are completed or within 24 hours.  In the case of needing to make a time sensitive transfer from Bittrex, please visit the official discord channel and request assistance.  Requests for the amount necessary to cover an initial transaction fee are usual and welcomed.

Requests made through this service are processed once each day. Please allow up to 24 hours for processing of your request to complete.
