API Documentation

On this page you will find all the necessary information and explanations of the API to easily integrate with a new or existing faucet or website compatible with FaucetHub’s v1 API.

The following information is intended for Developers and Site Owners with an understanding of PHP and API integration.
Migration

Move an existing FaucetHub compatible faucet/website to our service

The API is designed to be compatible with faucets coming from FaucetBOX.com and FaucetHub.io. You will find the PHP library in the project root called microwallet.php providing the Microwallet() class, and compatible classes FaucetHub() and FaucetBox(). Please note that to use your own Microwallet script you must call setBaseURL() to correctly set your Microwallet script’s URL to https://microwallet.faucethub.io/api/v1/.

API Methods

All methods and usage explained

Using the API is easy, as every request you make is a HTTP POST request with a set of parameters such as one of your API keys and currency and returned in JSON format.
If the request was successful, the JSON object will contain a status attribute equal to 200 along with an optional message attribute. If the request failed you will get a separate code and message attribute explaining the problem/error in further detail.

In the parameters list for each method there are REQUIRED parameters and OPTIONAL ones

NOTE A full list of status codes and errors with further explanation and suggestions is available at the bottom of this page in the Troubleshooting section.
