Jan 1st 2020, defcoin.secdsm.org will be shutdown. It's been fun running it for a couple years, but it's time to move the resources to other efforts. Any funds left in the pool, even from user accounts, will be transferred to the defcoinfaucet - which will be migrated and kept alive as a personal project.
The faucet will be down between Jan - March as that transition occurs. I'll likely completely recode the faucet during that time. It is my goal to have the faucet back up and running in time for DEF CON with better performance, public logging, and better automated abuse detection.
