Earning BTC through Bitcoin Faucets: Is it Worth it?

Back in the day, when cryptocurrencies only started to emerge, there was not a lot of different ways to buy Bitcoin. However, as years went on, and the development progressed, a lot more options for obtaining different coins emerged. Of course, cryptocurrencies are still far away from mass adoption that the community is hoping to see. Even so, their popularity is rising rapidly, which eventually led to a phenomenon known as Bitcoin faucets.

Simply put, Bitcoin faucets are websites that pay people tiny amounts of Bitcoin in exchange for watching videos, clicking links, and doing similar activities that require no particular skills or knowledge.

These amounts are not really measured in BTC, but rather in Satoshis, which are 100 millionth of 1 BTC. This means that 1 BTC equals 100,000,000 Satoshis, and the amount a person gets per click is usually only around one Satoshi. At this point, you would need 25,000 satoshi’s to have $1, which is not exactly profitable. You would need to earn one satoshi per second for as long as three years to earn a single Bitcoin, which is currently less than $4,000. In other words, if you worked 24 hours per day, clicking on one link per second, you would still end the day with only $3.65 in your wallet.

Furthermore, a lot of these offers are scams which promise larger rewards and never pay users for their hard clicking work. In other words, most of these offers are a waste of time, which will result in little to no profit. Even so, there are a few of them that might be worth checking out.

Cointiply

The first one to consider is Cointiply, which is supposedly not only trustworthy but also profitable. At least, more profitable than most. The service’s users can earn BTC by playing games and watching videos. They will spend time collecting coins, with 100 of them being worth $0.01, but they can only withdraw the funds after they hit $35,000 coins.

After some quick calculations, it turns out that users can earn around $35 after watching ads for over 87 days, so we will leave it to you to decide how profitable it is. However, there is a trick to it, and it is a simple one at that — users can open multiple tabs at once and “watch” multiple videos at the same time, which can allow them to quickly collect more coins.

The games are slightly more profitable, although most of them are crosswords. These require that user remains at their computer and remain engaged, which is less appealing than just playing numerous videos in the background.

Moon Bitcoin

This service allows users to claim their funds every five minutes, but the trick is to leave it unclaimed for a longer period, which will allow you to earn more. It also requires you to disable your ad-block, but other than that, you can leave it open in the background and watch your funds increase over time. The amount that you can earn is about 250 satoshis per 5 minutes, which is around $0.11 per hour.

Bonus Bitcoin

Bonus Bitcoin is a more profitable alternative that promises to pay 5,000 satoshis per 15 minutes if the user keeps the webpage open and click on a button every 15 minutes. It also causes multiple new sites to open in new tabs, which quickly becomes rather annoying. The promise to earn 5,000 satoshis in 15 minutes does not appear to be true, and while earnings can be increased through games, it would still never add up to 5,000. Even if it did, that is about $0.80 per hour, which doesn’t make it worth the effort.

Conclusion

There are many other services like these, and they may even be profitable if you can run an entire network of computers, although that would lead to larger costs which ultimately defeats the purpose. In the end, Bitcoin faucets are a nice idea, but they are hardly worth it, and they will likely end up wasting your time for fractions of a dollar per hour.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

KaratGold Background

KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks.

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

The first of…
