Easy Guide to Getting Free Crypto

What If I Told You You Can Get Crypto For Free?

One day, I woke up to new magical internet monies sitting in my online wallet:

These are coins I’ve never bought. How did this happen?

I soon learned that what I received was an “airdrop” – free cryptocurrency just for having the right crypto wallet open.

At the time of this writing, I’ve received about $100 worth of crypto from passive (didn’t do nothin’) to active (mildly headache-inducing) strategies. If you like free money, I’ll walk you through the easiest ways to earn free cryptocurrency.

These methods, in order of easy to difficult, are:

  1. Setting up online wallets
  2. Earning crypto from airdrops
  3. Playing with crypto faucets

Or if you’re impatient, jump to the end for the best-bang-for-your-effort options.

Method 1: Get free crypto with online wallets

Effort: minimal

A cryptocurrency airdrop is when a blockchain platform distributes free coins. To receive airdrops, you need a wallet associated with that blockchain.

For example, new crypto projects can leverage an existing blockchain platform like Ethereum to create tokens. Specifically, these ethereum-based coins are called ERC-20 (“Ethereum Request for Comment”) tokens. When the popular ERC-20 token OMG launched, as part of their promotion they airdropped OMG to anyone with an Ethereum Wallet.

Two caveats with this:

  1. You’ll have to have some non-zero balance of the main crypto (e.g. Ether) in your wallet to receive airdropped tokens (e.g. OMG).
  2. An independent wallet with private keys that you own (e.g. not at an crypto exchange) is necessary for this to work.

In addition to airdrops, having wallets with the major blockchains is handy whenever there’s a software fork – when a clone of the blockchain is created.

When Bitcoin Cash forked from the main Bitcoin blockchain, everyone with a proper wallet received a 1:1 equivalent of Bitcoin Cash according to how much Bitcoin they already owned (e.g. 1 BCH for 1 BTC).

This is why it’s important to move any Bitcoins you have from an exchange to your own web wallet; exchanges like Coinbase are great for buying crypto with dollars, but terrible for holding. It’s up to exchanges if they want to release coins from forks or airdrops to their users.

So what kind of wallet should you open up? Where and how?

Pro tip: go to CoinMarketCap and filter for “Coins,” then set up the official wallet for that coin:

You’ll notice that even when you filter for coins, there are hundreds of independent blockchains, and setting up individual wallets for each one is impractical. You can also explore this shortlist of blockchain platforms.

Here’s the simple option with minimal effort: just open up a MyEtherWallet (“MEW”). The majority of new tokens are built off of Ethereum, and MEW is the most popular and supported Ether web wallet which will maximize the chances of getting free crypto airdrops.

Just to summarize, here’s the low hanging fruit option:

  1. Open a MyEtherWallet account
  2. Transfer any quantity of Ether, e.g. 0.01 ETH from Coinbase into MEW
  3. Wait for airdrops!

^ Note that you can repeat similar steps with other blockchain platforms like NEO and Stellar

Method 2: Earn free crypto by hunting for airdrops & bonuses

Effort level: medium to high

You might now be wondering why companies even do airdrops in the first place. It’s a promotional strategy to raise awareness for their new project. Many crypto teams have a specific allocation for marketing activities, and airdrops is just one part of them.

Given this context, it makes sense that many new cryptos give away coins & sign up bonuses. Sometimes it’s just a matter of signing up with your email and a wallet address.

Other promotional bonuses can be earned through effort, such as reviewing a crypto project or signing up for their Facebook.

I earned free Badcoin by reviewing and supporting The Bad Crypto Podcast (which you should all listen to!)

Hunting for crypto bonuses & airdrops takes work, and almost requires you to be an early adopter: exploring ICOs, subscribing to newsletters, following crypto news.

But there’s an automated way to learn about + earn crypto bonuses.

It’s called Earn.com, a platform that pays you in crypto to read promotional messages from businesses.

How this works: sign up to join lists like “Web designer” or “Bitcoin buyer,” and businesses interested in promoting to these lists will send paid messages.

By far the most common paid messages are from crypto projects raising awareness about their own coin or ICO. Thus, Earn.com has become a streamlined interface to get notified about, and receive airdrops of new coins:

There’s a double benefit to using Earn. Not only do you get $1+ in Bitcoin for every message you open, BUT you also enlist to get free airdropped tokens:

The do-it-yourself way is to scour for upcoming airdrops on sites like AirdropAlert, but Earn.com is a much more integrated experience. You can save your MyEtherWallet address to join ERC-20 token airdrops, and the platform also provides a quick way to get paid out to BTC to a bitcoin wallet like Coinbase:

To get started, join Earn via my personal referral link.

Method 3: Earn free crypto with crypto faucets

Effort level: annoying, often low ROI

Crypto faucets work by distributing tiny amounts of cryptocurrencies for actions taken, usually by looking at ads, completing micro tasks or even playing games. Faucets share their advertising revenue back to the users in the form of crypto.

Big caveat: faucets require a lot of work and the ROI in terms of looking at ads for being paid small amounts of crypto many not be worth it.

With that being said, after scouring the web, these are the three most reputable faucet websites I’ve played with:

FreeBitcoin.in

Probably the oldest and most reputable Bitcoin faucets. FreeBitcoin has been around since 2013 and has multiple features, from offering its own wallet with interest, casino/dice type games and more ways to earn (or gamble away) BTC.

FaucetHub.io

One of the few reputable faucet sites with tons of options (games, ads) to earn multiple cryptos, from BTC to ETH to Dogecoin. Like many other faucets, you have to turn off your Adblocker which is annoying. A lot of other faucets also require FaucetHub account for payouts, similar to Coinpot.

Moon Bitcoin

The “Moon” chain of faucets are really straight forward: ads are displayed, and you can claim Satoshis (fractions of a Bitcoin) every 5 minutes. Easy peasy!

Coinpot

A “microwallet” service required by many faucets like Moon Bitcoin to deposit crypto earnings.

The easy 80/20 solution for most people

If you’re overwhelmed by the # of options, don’t stress. The best bang-for-your-effort option should take a total of no more than 15 minutes of setup time:

  1. Create a MyEtherWallet account.
  2. Create an account at Earn.com.
  3. Get free random airdrops into MEW, or get notified of new airdrops at Earn.com.
  4. Bonus step: transfer a tiny bit of Ether, acquired from an exchange like Coinbase, into your MyEtherWallet. Some airdrops require small amounts of Ether in your wallet to receive free ERC-20 tokens; do this step as insurance to get your free cryptocurrency.
  5. Join the Markethive Daily Faucet Group to work together daily in a web room with the Faucets. Markethive has a faucet, airdrop and bounty program as well when you join for free.

Only if you have time and patience on your hands would I bother with crypto faucets.

Do you want to own Markethive?

Do you want to own a portion of Markethive?

Seriously, we have built Markethive to be member driven, not investor driven. Investor driven gives the benefits of the system to the venture capitalist and makes the user a commodity. We are focused on the alternate outcome, you having access to the major benefits in both the functions as well as the inevitable success.

We have made this possible by making one of the benefits of the Entrepreneur program an accrual of investments for you to earn back more than 100% of what you pay into it as shares in the revenue of Markethive.

So we have 2 revenue funding options within Markethive. The traditional crowdfunding using an ICO like system called the ILP. Frankly, the ILP is fair, legal and far more effective as it is based on the revenue of a successful company. So an investor can purchase an ILP or many ILPs that are now in phase 2 and selling for $15,000 per and each represents one share at a maximum of 1000 shares of 20% of Markethive’s revenue.

The Entrepreneur program gives you 8 solid advantages above the core of the system, the Inbound Marketing platform and social network.

The 8 points of upgrade
 

  1. Profile Page turns into lead “associates” capture page
     

  2. 100% matching bonus from the airdrops via your “associates”
     

  3. 10% matching bonus from your direct “associates” upgrade
     

  4. Loyalty Program 12 straight months, we contribute to you a full 10% ILP*
     

  5. Unlimited Banner advertisement in all of our traffic portals
     

  6. Equal share from Markethive’s co-op advertising

So…What if?

Marketo, a vertical Inbound Marketing platform alone (Not a Market Network) recently sold to Adobe for 4.75 billion dollars. Their platform is very similar to Markethives. Marketo delivers the following to their subscribers for a price range between $2k and $25k per month:

All setable to private, or member only or public according to each subscribers wishes.

 

LinkedIn's last published quarterly revenue statement for 2016 showed earnings of 959 million dollars. If Markethive reaches 20% of that target (speculative $191,000,000.00) within 10 years, that will represent a monthly amount per MH ILP share of $63,000 per month per full share and $6,300.00 per month for a 1/10 of an ILP share. For at least 20 years per contract with each contract renewable and transferable.

If you project that number for 20 years the very real and attainable return could be rather incredible at $1,512,000. The is One million Five hundred twelve thousand dollars. And that includes all the other 7 upgraded services.

We are offering this deal of the century to the top active 1000 Markethive Entrepreneur upgrades. For just $100 per month.
