Microwallet.org a withdraw only service that powers literally hundreds of bitcoin faucet sites has announced it will be closing it’s doors soon.
The site which has served the community since it’s creation in November of 2013 today announced that it was up for sale and that the site would be closing soon.
Coin Fire learned of the closing early this morning after the Microwallet site went offline for a brief period of time earlier in the week.
Today a message was posted on the Microwallet.org site that the site’s source code is for sale for 4BTC. The message can be read here: https://www.microwallet.org/index/sale
We are unsure if this purchase includes the domain name but based on the description listed on the site it appears the owner is simply selling the source code and not the Microwallet.org domain.
At the time of press Coin Fire has reached out for comment but has not yet received a response. While the site simply lists that it is currently for sale Coin Fire has confirmed that the actual service is in fact being closed down after a post was made by the owner on Bitcoin Talk stating:
