Page 4 - Other Faucets and My Conclusion
I've found a new communal payout service called BitChest. Like Microwallet.org above and Coinbox.met below, BitChest faucets all pay into a BitChest wallet that then pays out to you when you've accumulated 5,500 satoshis. BitChest has a good interface and lets you know exactly how close you are to getting a payout, as shown in the screenshot below.
As is the case with all of the faucets in this list, I can confirm that BitChest pays out as advertised. Below are the five highest-paying faucets that use this service, all of which have been tested.
|8coin.me||Daily||500 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|BITcurl.met||4 Hours||250 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|BitcoinFaucet.me||Hourly||120 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|FreeCoinBit.com||Hourly||109 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|GetBitcoinsQuick.com||30 Minutes||100 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|RainCoins||Hourly||52 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|New - SmurfCoin||30 Minutes||52 satoshis||Straight forward, easy to use.|
|Señor Bitcoin||20 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
|Can Has Bitcoin||60 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
|FaucetBTC||20 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
|BitcoinSpain||20 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
|New - FreeBTC4all||20 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
|New - Fr33bitcoins||20 satoshis||30 Minutes||Straight forward, but low payout.|
I have another group wallet called Coinbox.me. Multiple 30 minute faucets pay into one wallet that then pays you once you reach 5,500 satoshis. These faucets don't pay out very much, but I'm keeping an eye out because the operator says higher paying faucets are coming.
These sites are quirky, and Can Has Bitcoin is intentionally a throw-back eyesore, but they make it easy to get some free Bitcoins.
Señor Bitcoin, Can Has Bitcoin, and FaucetBTC Screenshots
It's a 6-hour faucet, I've accumulated 0.00046BTC over several months.
It's pretty straight forward. Load the page, enter your Bitcoin wallet address, enter the CAPTCHA, and come back in six hours.
If you have fiat cash (i.e. dollars or euros) and you want to invest in Bitcoins, just buy them. None of these faucets pay out enough to warrant the time you spend. Hitting these faucets is not a job replacement.
But, it's fun and it's easy, and if it's sitting there in the background and you hit them when you're taking a break from work or futzing around on your iPad, it's essentially free bitcoins. Today's 0.01BTC is worth about US$6.17. But if Bitcoin hits $40,000 like the Winkelvoss Twins think it will, that same 0.01BTC would be worth $400, and I've personally earned .29BTC from these faucets over the last couple of months.
That would retroactively make the time you spend loading a page and entering some CAPTCHA information a different equation.
And in the meanwhile, you could even use these free Bitcoins to play some online poker.
