Bitcoin is up by almost 100% since the November 2018 low. With the cryptocurrency on the verge of a major bull run, one question is on everyone’s mind. Is it too late to invest in Bitcoins?
But fear not dear reader, here we are going to give you some best ways to get Bitcoins for free in 2019 (we are serious). Now full disclosure, it won’t be much so don’t expect to become a millionaire through them, but it’s a start. So without much further ado, let’s see how to get free bitcoins in 2019.
1) Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Faucets
Faucets are special websites that pay you some amount of Satoshi’s (the smallest unit of Bitcoin). Most of the Bitcoin faucets give around 5000 satoshis. But in 2019, this amount is too less to make a transaction. To withdraw that amount, you need to put in $10 worth of Bitcoin in that address. But it’s a start. Do it for 150 days daily and you get yourself a nice 0.01 BTC (or $50) for free.
There are faucets for other cryptocurrencies as well such as Bitcoin Cash, Tron, and some not so well known cryptocurrency which pay a little extra cryptocurrency. Convert those cryptocurrencies for Bitcoins [BTC].
Examples: Search for Bitcoin Faucets on Google.
2) Bitcoin Games
Similar to Bitcoin Faucets, Bitcoin games allow people to earn some free bitcoins (paid in Satoshis) for playing a game and viewing an ad. These games are simple in nature and you can make around 10,000 satoshis per day (or $0.005) playing games.
This is the easiest and profitable way to get free Bitcoins. Many exchanges, wallets, casinos, etc run their referral programmes which allows you to get up to 50% of the trade fee. So sign-up to a few and convince your friends to use your referrals.
Example: Binance referrals
4) Get Tipped in Bitcoins
Are you an online content creator? Meme creator? Active on Twitter and Reddit? Then this option’s for you to get free bitcoins. Tippin.me is a Bitcoin Lightning service which allows people to Tip content creators in Bitcoin. The tool is really popular with the Bitcoin community and if you have some awesome content/opinion you can post them. If people like what you post, you can make around $10 a day through tips in Bitcoin. This method is really popular these days.
Have an old pc laying around. You can use it to mine cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin mining won’t be possible on an old machine due to high computing requirements, but not so resource heavy chains can be easily mined.
Example: Low resource cryptocurrencies that can be mined are Dogecoin and Monero.
Note: Mining is a process that requires the system to be working on the full capacity for a considerable amount of time. Ensure that your electricity bills do not skyrocket.
Alternatively, if you don’t have a computer lying around you can always use a cloud computer. Signup for Digitalocean and start mining. Do not mine Bitcoin, but less resource hungry currencies.
Ah, this is not an option to get free bitcoins per se, but if you can win a game you can get double or triple the number of Bitcoins. Some cryptocurrency games, such as roll the dice have a high winning probability but fewer payout rates (like 1.1x or so). You won’t make a considerable amount of money but yes you will get some free Bitcoins.
