1. The CCN Bitcoin Faucet

CCN recently started our own bitcoin faucet, with the goal of introducing our readers to bitcoins by letting them experience the currency directly, for free. In comparison to other faucets, ours pays slightly higher, with up to 0.0001 bitcoins, or 10 000 satoshis, every 5 minutes and almost no advertising. Advertising is one thing you’ll have to deal with if you’re delving into the world of Bitcoin faucets, as they almost all have a great deal of it. Finding a faucet like ours, where there is little advertising, will seem a blessing after you’ve cruised some faucets for awhile.

2. Coin Flapper

This game for Android devices is a fun way to earn free Bitcoin in your idle hours. Based on Flappy Birds, the crazy popular game of a couple years ago, the game awards you based on how you do in a tournament against other flappers. If you win, you get 0.000006 BTC, and you are allowed to play 200 free games per day. The producer, Bitplay.Today also has a “pro” version of Coin Flapper that allows users to pay a small fee and earn bigger prizes (up to 0.003 instead of 0.000006).


3. Read Books

Readers may remember CCN’s coverage of PaidBooks.com, a site run by the friendly folks behind Bitcoin Aliens. It has the same functionality as a regular faucet, but instead pays users for reading classic books. It is one of the more interesting and engaging methods of giving away free money, as it gives the user the opportunity to engage in more ways than simply getting around a CAPTCHA and pressing a couple of buttons.

4. Play Dice

Most dice websites allow the user to have a free balance to play with, albeit a very small amount. Examples of sites that do this are PrimeDice and 999Dice. Whether you’ll be able to play the actual games depends on your jurisdiction, though you can often withdraw the money you’ve earned for free regardless of where you live. It is possible to research dice strategies and take the free amount and turn it into a substantial amount of money if you’re willing to invest the time. The author once took a 0.000005 faucet payout and turned it into .1 BTC, which was over $30 at the time.

5. Other Bitcoin Faucets

There are some large and reputable faucets that have consistently made their payouts for a long time. A few that make such a list are Free BitcoinBitcoin Zebra, and Moon Bitcoin. To find a long list of faucets, visit Land of Bitcoin.

As you can see, cryptocurrency enables marketers to give away the ultimate freebie in the modern age: money. While you would have to spend a significant amount of time to get actual value out of faucet visitation, it does present a chance to become fully immersed in how Bitcoin transactions work.
