In the early days of Bitcoin, devices known as “faucets” were pretty popular. Faucets were a way to receive free Bitcoin (or portions of Bitcoin) for free. You simply entered your BTC address, filled out a captcha and bam free Bitcoin.

Back when Bitcoin needed exposure, faucets were a neat way to distribute some coins to curious potential investors and let them own and transact in the space for free. 

While many faucets just provided small fractions of Bitcoin, one famous Bitcoin faucet once was giving away 5 whole Bitcoins for free.

If you have a time machine laying around, head back to 2010 and claim your 5 free Bitcoins, today worth 250k.
