I've spent the last couple months figuring out a good strategy to generate some passive cryptocurrency without investing money before a big bull-run starts. As Bitcoin is still fairly low, but cryptos have been risen again in the last weeks, it's best to get in now. I don't have very much time, so I examinated the best-working websites with the littlest time investment and the highest result possible.
Disclaimer: This will be a long post and I'll tell you all the sites I use and how my strategy works. Use it as an inspiration and develop your own working strategy. Skip stuff that doesn't seem to be worth your time or websites you don't like. If you don't like to use a referral-link, just remove the last part of the link. Most websites will give you a bonus when signing up with a ref-link, though and I would appreciate it for the effort I put in this guide.
I assume you have some basic knowledge on cryptocurrencies, a wallet and accounts on Faucethub
So, let's get started.
Step 1: Claim once a day from stacking up faucets
If you're familiar with faucets, you probably know the moon-faucets that pay directly to Coinpot. They keep stacking up until your next claim, so they are the best and highest-paying faucets if you want to keep your time claiming as little as possible. I suggest you use them at least once a day to accumulate the daily bonus that will really change your game. I do a quick claiming round once in the morning and once in the evening. If you have more time, they are also really worth being claimed more often. For the sake of completion I will include them here:
for Bitcoin Moonlitecoin
for Litecoin Moonbitcoincash
for Bitcoin Cash Moondash
for Dash Moondogecoin
for Dogecoin Bitfun
stacking up Bitcoin-faucet that pays instantly to Coinpot
Two new exact clones of the Moonfaucets that pay instantly to Faucethub with no minimum. They also have daily bonus:
for Bitcoin Getcoin Litecoin
And the last stacking up faucet for BTC: Yannik.biz
So yeah, try to claim them at least once a day to maintain your daily bonus. The bonus can really be a game changer on these ones. Claiming them all will take no more than 5-10 minutes every day.
Step 2: Receive daily interest on your faucet claims!
Send your Bitcoin to Freebitcoin
and receive daily interest on your balance once you have more than 30000 Satoshis (shouldn't take too long if you put in some effort in the beginning). You can also use the website as a faucet once a hour. It is actually paying well. If you use my link to sign up a new account you will receive life-long +12,5% on your daily interest and +25% on all your claims. If you already have an account, just create a new one with this link and delete your old one as this ref-back-bonus will give you a decent boost on your earnings. Freebitcoin is one of the oldest and most trusted website in the crypto scene!
Step 3: Claim even more cryptos once you have some spare time
Highest-paying sites I found where you can claim every hour along with Freebitcoin
: very high paying and they also give you daily interest, but are tied to USD-rates, so you're better off withdrawing your satoshis to Freebitcoin once you reached minimum withdrawal as you would lose satoshis if BTC price continues to rise.
: Same as Freebitcoin, but with less functions.
: New website with cool design where you can claim once a hour and withdraw to Faucethub at a fairly low amount. Pays pretty well.
: Same script as Bitsfree, but pays a bit less and you have to solve three shortlinks once in a while to be able to claim. It's still worth participating in.
Remember: On every claim on these websites you have the chance to win a big amount of cash. So try to use them as often as possible. Unlike the stacking up faucets, with the exception of Cointiply, they don't have a daily bonus, so it's no problem if you ignore them for a while.
: Claim a good amount of satoshis every 15 minutes. Instant payments to Coinpot again.
Click high-paying ads on AdBtc
. Another good website for high-paying BTC-ads is Bits-Pays
Use websites where you can do surveys and all kinds of stuff to earn money that also pay in cryptocurrency. The best website I found that is similar to Swagbucks
and has the option to pay cryptos is probably Grindabuck
Claim your daily bonus at Firefaucet
, collect some Autoclaims during the week and run it during the happy hours on the weekend to get most of it. Instant payments to Faucethub.
Step 4: Use semi-passive methods with crypto farming games
There are some crypto games out there that have the ability to build you a decent chunk of passive income after a while. The sites require small tasks you do to earn crypto or credits which you can re-invest in stuff that will generate passive income for you. It takes some effort upfront, but once set up they will passively pay you with no additional effort.Here are my favorites:
: Claim from a faucet every 5 minutes, do surveys and shortlinks and re-invest your earnings in buildings that will generate satoshis for you every hour.
: Play a simulated mining game and do missions to level up. As you level up, your earnings increase. This site has a high stacking up daily bonus and can be very profitable once you get to a high level.
: Has several options to earn passive income. You can play their mining game or buy company shares that will give you dividends. It has a lot of attractive offers for advertisers and very high paying ads and daily bonus, too!
: This is a new website that works the exact same as satoshilabs. Once you're into satoshilabs you will also get Bitcoinfun. I see a lot of potential for this website.
Step 5: Fully passive methods
So yeah, let's come to the best part. There are options that require no effort at all! Let's go.
I've already written about sending my satoshis to Freebitcoin
for daily interest, but what you can also do is sending some cryptos to Eobot
. They are probably the only legit Cloudmining platform out there that has been paying since 2013. You can also claim some GHS there every 24 hours if you set Mining to GHS 5.0. first, which is cool. I like to send some of my altcoins like Doge and Bitcoin Cash to them and convert them in GHS to earn passive Satoshis.
You have probably heart it a thousand times on this sub, but you can also earn Bitcoin by using the two legit autosurfers that pay in Bitcoin by now. This is a fully passive method, just run them whenever you're online.
Another fully passive website planning to add crypto-payments soon is Radioearn
Use browser extensions that will automatically generate money for you just for using them:
: This is probably the best search engine I've ever seen. After installing it will be opened every time you open a new tab. You can customize it, so you can choose from searching via Google, Amazon, Reddit, Wikipedia and much more without accessing the websites first. This is very comfortably and the best part about it: You earn Pre-Tokens for every search, which you can later exchange for BTC.
: A browser extension that shows you some Banners while surfing the web and pays you some money for it. You can disable it at any time and it isn't over-present at all when surfing (I barely notice the banners).
Claim every 24 hours from Mellowads
and use it to advertise your ref-links. You can also promote your ref-links on AdBTC
. Having referrals is another good way to generate some passive income.
Sign up for Mannabase
. This is a cool project that aims to create some sort of crypto Universal Basic Income for everyone. After signing up you will need to verify your identity and once they accept you, you'll receive free Manna every week. You can then exchange Manna for BTC or USD. As they have a lot of pending approvals, expect it to take 1-2 months before they accept you.
So yeah, that's basically my main sources and my strategy and I treat it as some sort of site-business. If I am lazy, I spend no more than 10-15 minutes a day to claim the stacking up faucets and daily bonuses on websites and receive my daily interest, payments from Eobot, crypto games and browser extensions anyway. It's really cool to watch your balances, bonus and interest grow over time and who knows? 1$ in Crypto could be 30$ of Crypto in the future. Use this guide as an inspiration to develop your own strategy of acquiring as many Cryptos for free as you can. For me these websites work the best. And I tested a lot of websites.
Additional tips: Use different passwords on the websites and write them all down. It can be a hassle memorizing several passwords. Also create a separate e-mail-address for all the crypto websites. To make it easier handling all the websites, group them in a document e.q. all 1 hour faucets, all stacking up faucets and add links, so you can quickly access them when you want to use this particular group of websites. Be patient at first, your earnings will increase over time.
Feel free to ask me anything, have fun and happy claiming! :)
January 7 Update: submitted by
It's been a great launch weekend, and we've successfully transferred 9 Kitties to new homes.
Today we've made a few changes to improve the site and reduce fraudulent collection of Kitty Points. This includes introducing a claim form which appears when you've been on a page for 2 minutes, and will reward users with 20 Kitty Points. We've removed the 10 points per minute reward, but have added a 5 point reward for each video watched on our site in full. This means that in theory, you can collect 25 points every 2 minutes (it was previously only 20).
You can also now be rewarded for rewatching videos that you've already watched. Unfortunately, this feature has been abused, so we have temporarily disabled it whilst we work on alternatives.
Many thanks to our users who have suggested these (and other) changes! Our roadmap is developing, so we'll add more features soon. Original Post below
A few weeks ago, we posted on here asking for feedback (through a survey) about an idea that we had to do with enabling people to get totally free Crypto Kitties. Feedback was very positive, and lots of people seemed enthused at the prospect of getting totally free Crypto Kitties. Their ideas have helped shape the site into what it is today, however, there are many more ideas in the pipeline.
We're very happy to announce that we have - of today - launched the site! You can register now at https://cryptokittyshop.com
, and just by watching YouTube videos on our site, get rewarded with KittyPoints that you can then redeem for free CryptoKitties via our Kitty Shop https://cryptokittyshop.com/shop (which only accepts KittyPoints
. How do we offer FREE Kitties?
Users who visit our site allow us to run a script in the background that utilises some of their computer power to mine Monero (which is a cryptocurrency that is optimised for CPU mining, rather than the specialist mining hardware used for the majority of Bitcoin and Ethereum mining). We plan to use this mined currency to keep the site going with new Kitties, as well as covering the costs associated with transferring (through gifting) the Kitties purchased with KittyPoints on our site. Why should we trust you not to install bad stuff on our site?
We are fans of CryptoKitties, Ethereum and the wider blockchain community, and do not want to negatively impact upon any of these communities by not delivering a good service. We're fortunate enough to have been involved in Crypto for long enough to remember the good old days when you could get enough of a decent coin/token in Faucets where you had to look at adverts for ages in order to be rewarded with a small amount of a token/coin. In actual fact, these faucets led to us learning more about blockchain technology and helped us invest in some coins/tokens. So it's a belief that if everyone can get access to something, they will learn more about it, add to the community and everyone wins!
In regards to installing 'bad stuff', our script runs in the background of the site, and does not require a download, and will only work on our site (other sites are increasingly using this method, and many aren't upfront about it). We will do our best to ensure that the script is safe and secure to use (without it we can't keep the site running!). Are you just offering bad kitties that no-one wants?
We offer a range of Kitties (there are currently 18 available, with more to come) which you can see on our site's shop
(also verifiable on CryptoKitties' site here
. As you can see, there is a wide range of Kitties available, including some with rare traits, and a Fancy cat. More are coming soon! How does it work?
When you register an account, you can follow the links on our site
to "Get Free Kitty Points", where you can watch various YouTube videos (currently there are movie trailers, music videos, fail videos and gaming videos, but more are coming soon). For each full minute of the video that you watch, you are rewarded with
10 Kitty Points
(edit - see 7 Jan update above). Each Kitty in our shop
has a Kitty Point value attached to it and can only be purchased once by one user. When you have reached the appropriate balance in Kitty Points to purchase the Kitty that you want, you can complete the checkout procedure on the site (you will need a CryptoKitty account, which you can set up for free by installing Metamask and following the instructions on https://www.cryptokitties.co/faq
. Once we have received the order confirmation, no one else can order that Kitty, and we will manually transfer it to your account by gifting it on CryptoKitties.co. As this is a manual process, it won't be instantaneous, however, we will endeavour to get it done in less than 24 hours, although the transfer may be held up by network congestion. As part of this procedure, we will manually check that the requester has not blocked our script, as if this is the case we will cancel the sale, but we hope that this won't be necessary!
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to pop them here, and we will endeavour to answer them. As we said earlier, there are further plans in store and more helpful content about the site that will be added in the days and weeks to come, so feedback (good or bad) will be greatly appreciated.
Feel free to sign up and have a look around! https://cryptokittyshop.com
