Online Blockchain Announces Rapid Expansion of its

FreeFaucet Website  

- significant growth in traffic and visitor engagement on cryptocurrency platform -



Online Blockchain plc (LSE:OBC) today discloses advancement details for FreeFaucet.io, one of its cryptocurrency and blockchain products.


The UK's leading listed blockchain company reports that https://freefaucet.io 

- a hub for cryptocurrency faucets - has moved up 112,000 places to 31,933 in Alexa's global internet traffic rankings in only 90 days[1]. Alexa Rank is a definitive and respected measure of website popularity calculated by looking at traffic and visitor engagement.


FreeFaucet, which boasts some of the highest-paying cryptocurrency faucets on the net, has surpassed the 25,000 registered user level just five months after its beta launch. The site continues to increase users in line with strong growth with approximately 1000 new registrations occurring each week. Over 600,000 claims of 17 available cryptos - ranging from Bitcoin and PlusOneCoin to Ravencoin and Ethereum - have already been made by users.


The successful introduction of subscription services alongside advertising leads the company to expect that FreeFaucet.io will make an appreciable contribution to revenue in the next financial year. This elevation in global ranking follows FreeFaucet's announcement earlier this month about the launch of 'impression faucets' - a pioneering type of cryptocurrency faucet and advertising industry disruptor.


"Alexa is a great web analytics tool; we've used it for years. FreeFaucet's rise in the Alexa rankings is terrific and its rapid ascent in the Alexa traffic charts highlights that FreeFaucet is becoming a valuable property fast," said Clem Chambers, CEO of Online Blockchain plc. "This is just the beginning."
