Getting Cryptocurrency droplets through Faucets
Crypto faucets seem like a really easy way to earn crypto — for free. Cryptocurrencies can be earned, which is extremely slow and time and labour intensive, but if you have nothing else to do with your day, this might be your cup of tea.
A crypto faucet is an app or a website that distributes small amounts of cryptocurrencies as a reward for completing easy tasks. They’re given the name “faucets” because the rewards are small, just like small drops of water dripping from a leaky faucet. However, in the case of crypto faucets, tiny amounts of free or earned cryptocurrency are sent to a user’s wallet. In order to get free crypto, users need to complete tasks as simple as viewing ads, watching product videos, completing quizzes, clicking links (be careful!) or completing a captcha.
Usually, users need to register on a crypto faucet by entering their details along with the wallet address. After solving a task on the website, the reward earned goes to a micro wallet — a wallet similar to traditional wallets, but one which is capable of collecting small amounts of crypto assets. For most crypto faucets, micro wallets are automatically created upon signing up.
I have tried so many faucets, some of which seems legit, but they all store your earned coins on their own platforms. I’ve read some good and some bad reviews.
After the 40-plus faucets that I’ve been frequenting, I decided that only one deserved my undivided attention as they pay into my wallet directly and I have control over my funds immediately – you can read about this on my Daily Earning Routine page.
Here is a list of those that I have decided to share with you.
☆ PTC – They have a crazy high faucet reward but turns out its all a scam as they charge a 90% transaction fee, so if you were thinking this is easy money, it is not!
★ I have come across one or two that pop up ads with links to porn sites – so these innocent looking faucets are not always kid-friendly.
