    I'm doing some testing but I need a few testnet coins. Does anyone happen to have some spare they don't mind handing out? I can try to send them back when I'm done but it'll be a few weeks.

    Thanks :) Sorry if this isn't the right place for this request.

    Mining difficulty is very low on testnet, so you can get quite a bit by mining overnight. It was so easy, I did not even keep my testnet wallet coins.

    Just a follow up... Mining difficulty is very low. I mined almost 3000 coins in just 2 hours which is plenty for my tests. Thanks for the help. :)

    Are you still mining? Eventually the difficulty will adjust and if you stop mining after that happens then we'll be left with long block times for awhile.

    Please be considerate :)

    It'd be nice if you throttled to .5-1GH/s or so. Mining blocks as fast as you can on testnet causes tons of orphans and is counter-productive.

    My mining rig is back on mainnet. Sorry, I didn't expect to mine quite so many coins so quickly. That was an order of magnitude higher than I expected.
