Thank you for the faucet script, nice work there!
I have noticed this piece of code in the script. Could you please explain what it does? It looks like you are spying on the sites that have it installed. Is it true?
$curl->request(‘’, array(
‘method’ => ‘POST’,
‘body’ => json_encode(array($total, $transactionIds)),
‘user-agent’ => ’99bitcoins BTC Faucet’,
‘headers’ => array(
‘Referer’ => site_url(),
‘Plugin-Version’ => $this->config[‘version’]

We’re tracking how many installs and payouts where done through all of the faucets in general, no specific information about any faucet. It’s all clearly stated in the faucet plugin page under “things you need to know”.
