Earn Passive Crypto and Gift cards while you browse the web

By Monotone | Monotone Crypto | 3 Jul 2020

We all love to make money without spending any extra time. In this post I'll describe 3 ways I earn passive income just by browsing the web like I normally would. It's simple and easy to setup, even for newcomers to the space.


Brave Browser


I realize most people here are likely already using the amazing brave browser. And why wouldn't you? It offers all the benefits and speed of google chrome, without any of the data stealing. With a built in ad blocker and crypto rewards, you really can't go wrong. Normal browsers access your data and resell it to ad companies. Brave browser eliminates that threat.



One of the main benefits of Brave browser is the built in rewards system. It gives the user the option to enable ads which reward you with a portion of a Basic Attention Token (BAT). This token powers the brave ecosystem. You have the option to use these token to tip your favorite content creators, or withdraw them for yourself. I currently use brave browser on all 3 of my devices and earn around 50-75 Basic attention token per month.



  • First, you're going to want to head over to the Brave website and install the latest version depending on which system you're on.
  • Once you've installed and launched Brave browser, head up to the right of the address bar and click on the BAT Logo. In the drop-down, go ahead and click on rewards settings.



  • Once you're inside the rewards page, ensure both Brave rewards and Ads are enabled. Next is the important part a lot of people miss. To maximize your earning potential, Open up the Ads settings shown in the image below. Make sure it is set to 5 ads per hour. You can do this on all your platforms, including your android phone. 


Congrats! Now you're all set to passively earn BAT while you browse the web. If you would like to compound this with two more methods I use, continue to read below.

Presearch and Microsoft Rewards

This section is kind of a two for one. They can also be combined  with multiple devices if you want to maximize your rewards. If you're like me and constantly search things while you browse. These two programs are a must use. There's really no downside unless you only believe in google.

Presearch is a search engine that layers itself on top of another preferred search engine and rewards users every time they search. In order to take advantage of Microsoft rewards, we'll be using Bing.


Once you've made an account for Presearch, head over to The app store and install the widget for your Brave browser. This will enable you to implement Presearch into every search you do in your address bar. Then, go to the Microsoft rewards website and setup an account.

You can then setup bing as your default search engine in the presearch app and your browser itself. Once this is complete, you are earning fully passive income by doing no extra work at all. Enjoy the free gains! Currently I get enough points for $10-$15 in gift cards from Microsoft rewards per month. I'm averaging around 300-400 Presearch tokens per month. But disclaimer; You require 1000 ($20 at current price) Presearch tokens to withdraw from your account, which takes roughly 3 months. 

Closing Thoughts

This isn't a bad way to make some spare cash for doing absolutely nothing. Spend about 20 mins or less setting it all up and you can just forget about it for a few months and be pleasantly surprised when you looks back and see some extra cash laying around. In 5 months using all 3 of these together. I've averaged about $46 per month.

I fully recommend using 2-3 devices as it greatly increases the amount you are making per month.
