Five Minute Coin

Five Minute Coin is a new faucet site, and it is very interesting. If you are familiar with any of my past articles, then you will know that I love original sites with interesting systems. and this site has just that.
Fiveminutecoin is a site which when you visit, a 5 minute timer pops up and counts down until you earn 0.005BTC of free bitcoins(a very nice sum, much better than I have seen on other sites). But, if you click on an ad, then you can take 20 seconds off your timer. This is much better than other click-on-this-ad-for-money sites, because you still have to wait after pressing it, so have time to look at the site, whereas other sites you just click the ad and come straight back, wanting your money as soon as possible. This is very good for the advertisers. It also means they are more likely to get clicks to their site.
You can do this every 12 hours, much better than the 24 hours on most sites.
This would be very good, except II have found a way to cheat the system and get your coins in a few seconds:
In most internet browsers(google chrome does, but I don’t know about other browsers)there is a key you hold down and then press a link on the screen, and that link opens in a new tab without taking you off your current tab, putting it in your tabs list to click later(in google chrome that key is ctrl). So if I hold down ctrl, I can click the ads in the circle multiple times very fast and cheat the system, and then I would close all the windows afterwards. This is good for the site owner who gets paid 0.0005 per click, but not for the advertisers who have to pay for every spam click.
Overall, I rate this site a 6.5/10. This is a better site than most, but the only problem is the exploit I found, which will be recognised by advertisers who will subsecuently not list their ads until this issue is fixed.

    some of the site doesn’t work correctly. It might be a chrome issue, I haven’t tried other browsers yet…

    they have updated the site to not count down while the site’s tab is in the background.
