Get Free Bitcoins with 24 Website Faucets that Really Pay

| Tips

Bitcoin Faucet[Updated April 11th, 2014 - Removed some faucets that have gone dark, added several new faucets, and added pagination for easier reading. I also noted that many faucets have increased their payouts because the price of Bitcoin has decreased. DailyFreeBits was moved to the Microwallet.org section. - Bryan]

[Updated March 7th, 2014 - Added 6 new faucets with short reviews for all of the faucets to augment the full reviews. I'm still testing two other faucets, as well. - Bryan]

[Updated February 7th, 2014 - Added three new faucets—bringing the total to 14—and updated some the original descriptions with additional information. I also mentioned three faucets that I am testing that I'll add to the official list once I receive a payout. - Bryan]

Bitcoins are all over the headlines, but did you know there are websites that pay out "free" Bitcoins for visiting them or doing tasks? They're called Bitcoin faucets, and they're a great way for you to get into Bitcoins without mining, winning it through playing online poker with Bitcoins, wiring money to a Bitcoin exchange, or buying through LocalBitcoins.

Before we get to the faucets, Bitcoin is a virtual crypto currency—I penned a Bitcoin primer a while back if you're looking for more information. Bitcoin faucets aren't going to make you rich, but these are faucets that I can personally attest pay out when and how they say they will as I've collected 0.24 BTC from them.

This also seems like a good place to mention that I'm presenting a Bitcoin session at Macworld/iWorld 2014.

The first Bitcoin faucets were designed as promotional vehicles to get people interested and involved in Bitcoins back when a Bitcoin was worth a few pennies. A few people who had tons of Bitcoins that weren't worth much at the time thought that if they got them into the hands of more people, it would generate interest.

Today's so-called faucets are much more of a business model. Most of them work by paying out tiny fractions of a Bitcoin in exchange for loading a page full of ads or for watching videos. I also have one site to show you that's not a faucet, per se, but rather a site that pays Bitcoins in exchange for doing crowd-sourced tasks.

Terms:

  • µBTC/uBTC is a micro Bitcoin, or 0.000001BTC.
  • A satoshi is currently the smallest fraction of a Bitcoin, or 0.00000001BTC.

You'll need a Bitcoin wallet, either a standalone client wallet or a wallet from a service like Blockchain.info.

I would really advise TMO to get out of the business of (accidental) BitCoin promotion.  For all these libertarian dreams of an independent, unregulated currency, it’s not as if that’s never been done before in the U.S.  We used to have that and the economy was so prone to boom and bust panics, that’s why the Fed was created.  The belief that a non-fiat currency will cure our economic ills is a pipe dream borne out of ignorance and ahistoricity.

Marcus Wright

Sneaky tactic Mr. Chaffin…posting YOUR referal links.

Thanks for the sharing the list of free Bitcoin Websites.

No doubt there are some hackers hard at work devising ways around Captcha challenges, obfuscating their IPs, managing massively multiple accounts and then consolidating the harvest.

Rob Gloginja

Enjoy the fact that you posted your referral links - more money for yourself!!

Any chance you can tell us how much you made from referrals?

http://forbestrader.com/monkeycoin/ - this is a script that I built and maybe plan on “selling” for a few mBTCs.

FreeCoins4.me

Could you add our faucet freecoins4.me please? Thanks! smile

Bryan Chaffin

I can add you once I have tested it and received payment. Please contact me using our contact form if you have questions.

Edit: that site doesn’t seem to work. Contact me when you have it functioning.

2nd Edit: I can confirm the faucet is now accumulating BTC, as noted by the operator below. Once I’ve done it enough to receive a payout, I’ll add it to the list. Thanks for the heads up and the followup.

FreeCoins4.me

We had an issue with new addresses being added to the database (it was rejecting them) but it now seems to be fixed. Try it now.

bitcoinearn

http://bitcoinearn.org/generate.php
earn up 8 satoshi per 30 sec .....this is automatic and no captcha

http://bitcoinearn.org
earn up to 5000 satoshi every 20 mins

Bryan Chaffin

bitcoinearn, the “generate” page is working as described (paying 1 satoshi every 30 seconds, not 8), but the main page returns a 20 minute warning after the first dispense. This has been the case for several hours of testing. Please email me directly when you have it fixed, and I’ll include your site in the next update.

Dean Scott Walsh

You should add QoinPro - they have a daily mutli-coin faucet offer and referal program.
