Best 8 Bitcoin Faucets Reviewed
Best Bitcoin Faucets Summary
Initially faucets were created in order to spread the adoption of Bitcoin around the Internet. The original Bitcoin faucet was made by then Bitcoin Core developer Gavin Andresen and, believe it or not, it used to dispense 5 whole Bitcoins to each user.
Since then faucets have become more business oriented. Today, faucets are sites that dispense a small amount of Bitcoin to users every few minutes while making money from displaying ads to these users. As long as the site owner is making more money from ads than what he’s giving out to his users, he remains profitable.
Most faucets either pay out directly to your Bitcoin wallet or use a 3rd party micropayment wallet like CoinPot or FaucetHub. While this might seem to be a hassle at first, it’s actually a great convenience since you have all of your claims concentrated in one or two sites. This makes it much easier to withdraw and track your money.
Also, since the faucet industry is known to be a bit shady, things can change relatively quick. So, make sure to check out the terms of each faucet you use. Here are the main things to look out for:
Claim amount – How many Satoshis do you get per claim?
Timer – How long do you need to wait between claims?
Minimum withdraw – What is the minimum amount from which you can withdraw your balance?
Withdrawal method – Are payments done directly, or through a micropayment wallet?
Referral fee – What’s the fee you get for referring new users to the faucet?
Cointiply as founded in the beginning of 2020 and has been growing ever since. With a sleek interface and multiple methods for claiming Bitcoins, Contiply has it all.
The site’s faucet allows you to claim 200 Satoshis on average every 60 minutes. Aside from the faucet, you will also find the following methods available on Cointiply for earning Bitcoins:
- Watching videos
- Offer walls
- Pay to Click ads
- Browser games
For those who are looking to test their luck there’s also a coin multiplier function inside the site. Cointiply has been known to be relatively stable, with an almost 100% uptime according to FaucetHub.
Coins can be withdrawn to FaucetHub (a micropayment web wallet) as soon as you reach 35,000 Satoshis. If you have over 100,000 Satoshis, you can also withdraw directly to your Bitcoin wallet.
BonusBitcoin, the oldest website on my list, has went through many iterations until it arrived at its final form.
The site’s main feature is a faucet that allows you to claim every 15 minutes, with an average claim of 24 Satoshis. There is also a coin multiplier and a surveys/offers section on the site, for those who want to increase their earnings.
BonusBitcoin accounts are connected to CoinPot, a micro earnings wallet that accumulates your payouts. I have to say that CoinPot has many bugs and taking money out of it can be a hassle, however, in the end it works.
CoinPot has a minimum withdraw limit of 10K Satoshis with a fee and 50K Satoshis without a fee.
Referral commissions are 10% and you can get seniority bonuses up to 25% for using the faucet long term.
Payment are done weekly directly to your Bitcoin wallet with a minimum withdrawal of 20K Satoshis.
Blockchain poker is a single-table, No-Limit Texas Hold’em cash game, playing for real bitcoins. There are no sign-ups, which means players can remain anonymous.
New players are automatically awarded free satoshis to play with, allowing anyone to jump in and play (even if they don’t have any bitcoin). If you drop below 50 Satoshis you can use the faucet to top up your balance to 100 (limited to once every 3 minutes).
Players can choose to play with either Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Minimum withdrawal is relatively high at 100K. Additionally, there’s always the chance of fraud by users who set up multiple accounts and sit at the same table. However, in general this is a refreshing alternative to the standard faucet.
Moon Bitcoin is another veteran faucet that has been around since 2015. The faucet allows you to claim satoshis every 5 minutes, with the average claim being around 10 Satoshis. You can also run CPU mining in the background to increase your claims.
Moon Bitcoin uses CoinPot (similar to BonusBitcoin) in order to pay out users. CoinPot has a minimum withdraw limit of 10K Satoshis with a fee and 50K Satoshis without a fee.
FreeBitcoin was established in mid 2020. It allows users to draw a random number in order to win a certain amount of Satoshis. You can roll a number once every 60 minutes and the prizes range between $0.0003 to $300.
Withdrawals can be done once you reach $1 worth of Bitcoin and they are sent directly to your Bitcoin wallet.
BitFun is a website that allows you to claim Bitcoin through playing games, viewing offers or rolling dice. There is a variety of options and for each one the claiming time and payout is different.
The site is connected to CoinPot and withdrawal can be made once you’ve reached a minimum of 10K Satoshis.
SatoshiLabs (not to be confused with the company SatoshiLabs that made the TREZOR hardware wallet) is a faucet that allows you to claim 5-15 Satoshis every 5 minutes. Minimum withdrawal is 5K Satoshi. The site also offers a bunch of options to increase your claim amount.
