Nathan Warnke asked 9 months ago

Hello,
I have realized that when I change the wallet address for the payout from the bitcoin faucet, that it resets my funds to 0 satoshi — even though on my profile page it is aware of how many days I have been clicking for and what my clicks are in the last 24hrs. I would appreciate getting back all the satoshi that I have accumulated on my account.

HI Nathan,
You can only have one address linked to your profile. You can change back to the old address, claim until you reach the 13000 satoshis threshold, wait until the transfer is made. Once that is done you can switch to the new address if you still want, this way you will receive the previously accumulated coins.
