[Update #49 May 20th, 2017 – I’m moving Claimers.io to the confirmed pay list.  – Bryan]

[Update #48 May 15th, 2017 – I’m testing Claimers.io, and explain how it works below. I’m also still testing MyFaucet.biz, a faucet with a staggeringly high payout of 138,000-141,000 satoshis, In fact, it is almost assuredly too good to be true. DO NOT SEND BITCOINS TO MYFAUCET.BIZ FOR “VIP” STATUS! – Bryan]

[Update #29, February 16th, 2017 – My Bitcoin Faucet Guide was originally published on December 31st, 2013. It’s been updated many times, but the version below has been revamped to focus on the few faucets I’ve found that still pay. – Bryan]

Bitcoin’s price has climbed past US$1,000 again, increasing interest in Bitcoin faucets. I’ve put together a list of Bitcoin faucets that pay. Bitcoin faucets aren’t going to make you rich, but each faucet in my list is tested and monitored by me to make sure they pay. If you need more info on Bitcoins, check out my Bitcoin primer.

Bitcoins Raining Down

Bitcoin Faucets

Most Bitcoin faucets work by paying out tiny fractions of a Bitcoin in exchange for loading a page full of ads. There are also sites that pay Bitcoins for watching videos or doing crowd-sourced tasks.

You’ll need a Bitcoin wallet, either a standalone client-side wallet or a cloud-based wallet like Blockchain.info. For Dogecoin faucets, download the Dogecoin wallet.

Here’s my list of 18 faucets I know are paying, roughly in order of preference. Read on for descriptions of how each works.

  1. RP aren’t completely useless on freebitco.in. You only need a few thousand to activate BTC bonuses. If you make enough faucet claims this is more profitable than doing a simple cashout. Going for BTC bonuses is a much better option since RP value is tied to BTC/USD exchange rate so by the time 100k RP is reached you might not get very many satoshi anyways.

    It’s a lottery faucet were you roll a RNG and depending on the role you et between 180 satoshi and $200 bitcoin. I’ve never got the $200 but once or twice I’ve had 0.00016701

  3. Hi, can you confirm or inform me about bitminer.io… Does it really pay? After some instant payment the IPV(Instant Payment Value) decreases and this IPV works as a barrier above which you don’t paid instantly and those payments get in pending list and processed manually.
    So, my query is does it really pay?


    here is the link of the website

    mbukbitcoin, I ran into trouble with their registration process and have a support ticket. I’ll add them to my testing list if they’re able to work it out.

    bitminer, I didn’t realize you were asking about a cloud mining operation when I first responded. My problem with cloud miners is simple: if they can make a profit mining, why bother selling shares? Why not just earn the Bitcoins and keep the profits? As such, I’ve not found a cloud mining operation I can recommend. Note that I didn’t test this one specifically.

  5. Bryan Chaffin

    Andrius As Esu, I just checked again to make sure: I definitely got my first payout from them. It’s sent to Epay.info, so you’ll need to withdraw it from there to get it in your wallet. I’ve never had any issues with Epay, though they do take a few days to process withdrawals.

  6. How sure are you that bitcoinbeetle.us pays? Have you tested it recently? When is supposed to give payouts? Does payout begin as soon as you hit your desired or default amount? Or does it happen on a certain day? Is there any contact information where they actually respond?

  7. Bryan Chaffin

    I 100% received a payout on March 10th from Bitcoin Beetle. I didn’t receive a payout this Friday, which Andrius noted above is their payout date. Being just a couple of days late, I’m not worried about it, but am keeping my eye on them.

  8. Still no paynment from Beetle. Anyway, you can check this interesting social platform and faucet in one. Faucet is really good, the only minus – minimal withdraw 200k satoshis. But they can be collected pretty fast, and i got already a payment. So you should really try it. [Thanks for the link – Bryan]

  9. Thanks for listing my faucets.
    Please be informed, that you also can sign in with BTC address.
    Then payouts are handled via Faucethub.io
    That means you have to register your BTC address at Faucethub in advance in order to get also immediate payout.
    The range of rewards is adjusted automatically depending on current BTC price.
    So if price go down, the reward will increase.
    Regards and enjoy.

  10. I’d say FreeBitco.in has been dethroned by MoonBit.co.in and BonusBitcoin.co, though it is still worthwhile. Notes on each:

    FreeBitco.in remains a steady performer, as you note. Per my calculations in the comments on your old article, I am well over 99% confident that they never pay more than the first three tiers of claims (1x, 10x, 100x baseline), so forget that $200 jackpot, or even $20 or $2. Ditto FreeDoge.co.in.

    MoonBit.co.in has a baseline payout about 75% of FreeBitco.in if you claim once an hour. However, their daily loyalty bonus rises by 1% for each day you claim at least once, maxing out at 100%, so the hourly baseline is 150% of FreeBitco.in after you’ve been claiming steadily for a few months. In addition a) the mystery bonus adds another 1%-100% of baseline with a fairly even distribution; b) you can boost the hourly take if you claim more than once per hour, though I’m not sure how much higher it can go since I don’t have the time to spare for a claim every five minutes; and c) because the payout continues to go up until you make a claim (I think it maxes out after 24 hours), your first payout after a gap of more than an hour will be bigger than usual, whereas it’ll be the same for FreeBitco.in after a gap. In all, I don’t bother to claim more often than once an hour from MoonBit.co.in, but I still get around twice as much from them in a week as I do from FreeBitco.in.

    BonusBitcoin.co is even better, with an average payout about 125% that of FreeBitco.in to begin with. (You say your average is lower than they quote; it will remain so until you hit the rare 5000 satoshi payout, which will yank your average up in a big jump. You can also choose to claim the average payout every time instead of a random value, and I have chosen this to have assurance of the amount I’ll receive.) More than that, though, you can claim up to four times an hour and, unlike MoonBit.co.in, the payouts are all the same size, not smaller for more frequent claims. This means, if you are stubborn enough to return every 15 minutes, you can get five times as much from BonusBitcoin.co as from FreeBitco.in! (Plus a daily bonus of 5% of your claims over the past three days, or about a 15% boost overall.) Also, the payout threshold can be as low as 10,000 satoshi, though they charge a fee of 1000 satoshi for payouts less than 50,000 satoshi. I have received one payout of 10,000 satoshi and one of 50,000 satoshi so far, as advertised.

    Cindy, I don’t send money to faucets. I suspect—but don’t specifically know—that it’s too-good-to-be-true at best or a ponzi scheme, at worst. The “comments” being posted seem awfully suspect, too, but your mileage may vary.

    I don’t know precisely what they’re doing, but I don’t send money to faucets. That’s my bottom line.

  12. Bryan Chaffin

    I’ll add something on on Claimers.io when I can, Er Zadar. The short version is that I’m testing and understand how it’s supposed to work, but haven’t yet gotten enough to confirm that they pay.

    I did reach the minimum withdrawal for MyFaucet.biz. The withdrawal mechanism doesn’t function properly. I have a ticket filed with them, but I’m not all that hopeful.

  13. Bryan Chaffin

    Tessy, I’ve had a withdrawal on AutoFaucet sitting for a while now. That happened once before, but when I canceled that withdrawal and re-withdrew it went through in minutes. I noticed their last payments went out on May 14th. I’m watching that. When I see new payments going out, I’ll resubmit and see what happens.

  14. Bryan Chaffin

    Er Zadar, I received my first payout from Claimers in 24 hours, which what they described. Tessy, I’m still waiting for my current payout, but AutoFaucet sent out more payments to other users since I posted last.

  15. Bryan Chaffin

    Hi richboy, autoclaim on AutoFaucet is a paid feature requiring Premium status or higher. I personally don’t recommend sending money to faucets, and I haven’t done so with AutoFaucet to test out the autoclaim feature.

    I note that ads get turned off when you buy Premium or higher status. If no ads, where’s the money coming from for visiting? That feels sketchy to me. At least with the free faucets, I know where the money is ultimately coming from (ads).

    If you haven’t bought a higher status, I don’t recommend doing so. If you have, I fear I don’t know how to turn on the autoclaim feature.

  16. Bryan Chaffin

    Richboy, I do think myfaucet.biz is a scam. A brilliant one, at that. Even the name…

    I’ve got notes to that effect in the guide itself. I’m still watching it just because, but it was always too good to be true.

  17. Bryan Chaffin

    richboy, Freebitco.in and FreeDoge.co.in both peg their payouts to $200 – $0.002. It’s how they’ve stayed solid all these years—because they’re buying Bitcoin as they go, their costs remain constant.

    Note that while the top tier prize is officially pegged at $200, I’ve personally never seen anything higher than the third tier pay out.

    In any event, their payouts have always been tied to the price of Bitcoin and rise and fall accordingly.
