I Gave Myself a goal to reach $750 in FREE Crypto by the End of the Year - I Beat That Goal Today

By Switched | Switched Crypto | 3 Nov 2021

A couple of months ago I made a post on Reddit r/CryptoCurrency stating I wanted to earn $750 CAD worth of free crypto. As of today, I am at approximately $700 and there are still 2 months to go! However, if I include Moons at their current valuation, I have actually beat my goal! 

So how did I earn this much for free?

Well, I tried plenty of avenues but found too many required a large time sink to be worth it or needed you to buy-in. As for games that implement blockchain elements, I have yet to find one that is more fun than the rewards linked to it. What it came down to was only four surprisingly easy methods to earn free crypto.

I set a few simple ground rules to accomplish this.

  1. Crypto earned must be free – no costs at all for myself.
  2. It can’t be something I’m doing in exchange for crypto. That’s work, I don’t want to work for this.
  3. It can’t have a large time sync to earn. If it does require a time sink, then it’s turned back into work.

I admit I got kind of lucky here. I performed most of the Learn & Earns at the end of July. I then converted the ~$40 worth of crypto into ALGO and ATOM, right before their runs in August. The odd Learn & Earns that have popped up since then have been converted into those two coins.

Total worth $155.


Sorry, Canada only and no plans to expand outside of here, afaik.

For those that don’t know, Shakepay gives a little bit of BTC every day for simply shaking your phone. I get approximately 1000 Sats (~$0.75 at current evaluations) every day.

BTC total worth at this point is $170.

I’ve used it since May, I don't think any explanation is needed here as it gets talked about pretty regularly.

BAT total worth $82.


This has the highest time put into it out of the other options, however the majority of the time put into the game is while I am on the bus on the way to work or walking. When walking, I only pull out the game when I am in a spot that I know has a vault to earn BTC/ETH. Since the beginning of August, I earned around $10/week. Recently, I have taken a new job where it’s better to take the bus. The amount along the bus route has increased the earnings to $15-$20/week. I know some players earn upwards of $50/week, but I don’t go too far out of my way to play this.

BTC total worth $152.
ETH total worth $138.



I’m not a large contributor to the subreddit. I post here and there but do not spend a ton of time hanging around there. However, my measly 296 moons earned since May are worth ~$62.


As of today, my total earnings from free crypto is almost $762! There are still two months to go in the year and I'm going to continue this further.
