I got done watching your youtube video on how to create a faucet. The only downside I can find to faucets is bots. I it up, and apparently there are some services that can bypass some captchas. Out of all the options faucetbox offers, what captcha is best to protect yourself from bots? Thanks in advance!

Hey,
first of all Faucetbox is now out of business so you’ll need to use epay. I personally use SolveMedia because they give an added revenue stream, but I think recaptcha is the safest (although I’m not sure).
The captcha itself won’t be enough for you to avoid bots but it is a good start. Once you get bigger you will need better protection like IP banning and claim limitation. You can find all of these in my WordPress plugin.
