Want free crypto? You’ve come to the right place. In this article, I’ll go over how you can earn free crypto by doing some tasks, i.e. you don’t have to own any crypto (staking) or buy hardware (mining). What’s better than free crypto? There are 2 types of earning: promotional and replacement. Promotional free crypto is where you participate in promoting a particular project, such as following a crypto’s social media accounts. Replacement free crypto is where you replace what you would normally use for everyday activities (such as searching, reading or watching) with the crypto project’s version. Let’s get started on getting free crypto!
Promotional Free Crypto
Coinbase: Learn and Earn
On Coinbase, you can go through some tutorials for a coin and answer a question to earn that crypto. As of Feb 2022, you can earn AMP and Stellar Lumens. Coinbase also had a promotion where if you connect the Coinbase wallet to your account, they would give you $4 in ETH. They seem to have different promotions so check it out on a regular basis.
You can also checkout coinmarketcap’s learn and earn list. You need to have a KYC verified Binance account and register for coinmarketcap’s website to get the crypto.
Airdrops are used to promote a particular project. Participants normally complete some tasks and earn coins, tokens and NFTs. Most of the tasks require you to follow the project on different social media, make some posts and have a wallet capable of receiving the coin, token or NFT. Some places where you can start participating in airdrops.
Replacement Free Crypto

There are a couple of crypto projects that are decentralizing the online video industry. Theta (THETA) is a video streaming project with the highest market cap of $3.2B (as of March 2022). As a user on theta.tv, you can watch videos and earn Theta Fuel (TFuel). Theta fuel is the utility token on the Theta Blockchain used in the Theta network. It is used to pay viewers, creators and transactions. Theta coin on the other hand is a governance coin. For most users, they’ll deal with TFuel. The most interesting part about Theta is that the streams are P2P, i.e. as you watch, you may pass on the stream to others. This is how you earn TFuel, by streaming to your peers.
There are many games where you can earn crypto, aka play to earn (P2E). One such crypto is UPX, upland. In this monopoly inspired game, you can earn UPX by logging in days in a row, owning properties (with a map of the world) and you can obtain more by finding treasure chests. You can also buy UPX or buy properties with fiat currency. There’s no way to get your UPX out of the game unless you sell your property for US Dollars. There are many other P2E games that you can play to earn free crypto, check them out to see if they’re your cup of tea.
As crypto becomes popular, there’s many ways in which you can earn free crypto. Some methods (such as Learn and Earn and Airdrops) are promotional while others (such as Presearch and Publish0x) replace what users use everyday. With these methods, you are earning less than one dollar per day for your time. Seems like these methods are not worth it, unless you believe that these crypto will increase by 10x or even 100x. Therefore, you should invest your time towards projects you like, just like how you invest your money.
