No, we’re not talking about plumbing fixtures.
Cryptocurrency faucets are websites where the visitor is awarded coins just for signing in. In most cases the basic payouts are small, but you can increase them by referring friends, participating in offers, filling out surveys or watching ads or videos.
The amount collected at any one time is small. You’ll need a micro-wallet to keep track of your earnings. Once you have accumulated enough of a particular cryptocurrency you can transfer that balance to your normal crypto-wallet.
I have been using Coinpot micro-wallet (https://coinpot.co/) for a few months now. I fully recommend it if you want to start getting crypto from faucets.
There are seven different faucets that pay out to Coinpot in five different coins. In addition, for every claim you get three coinpot tokens that you can exchange for any of the coins supported by Coinpot. You can also exchange any of the different crypto-currencies supported by the wallet without any extra charge.
These are the faucets associated with Coinpot:
Bonus Bitcoin pays in Bitcoin every 15 minutes.
Bit Fun pays in Bitcoin, collect every 3 minutes
Moon Bitcoin pays in Bitcoin, pays every 5 minutes
Moon Cash pays in Bitcoin Cash, pays every 5 minutes
Moon Dogecoin pays in Dogecoin, pays every 5 minutes
Moon Litecoin pays in Litecoin, pays every 5 minutes
Moon Dash pays in Dash, pays every 5 minutes
Here are some other Faucets where you can sign up. Both of these pay out interest when you keep a balance above a certain amount.
Recently I have come across a new type of faucet. ESFaucets is a multi-coin faucet. You can earn 12 different crypto-coins, plus the native ES-Coin. Every half hour you can make the rounds collecting all coins, and you can also earn coins by referring friends, clicking on links, watching videos, participating of offers and mining ES-coins. ESFaucets has tabs where you can earn ES-Coin, Bitcoin Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Stellar, Digibyte, Dogecoin, Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, 0x, and Tron. In your ESFaucets dashboard you can exchange between the different coins with up to 7 free trades per day.
Now, you may be wondering how much money you can make in any of these faucets, not much. The owners of these websites make money by selling ads, clicks or views, that is not a very high paying market. You cannot expect them to pay a lot for your view and still make a profit. What you have to keep in mind is that you’re getting this revenue without much effort on your part, and there is always the possibility that a particular coin will moon and then the value of your earnings will increase substantially.
