Last updated: 1/20/19

Bitcoin Faucets are sites that every few minutes dispense a small amount of Bitcoins (aka Satoshis) for free. As these sites are basically giving away free money, they have become extremely popular.

Before starting to claim

Most faucets either pay out directly to your Bitcoin wallet or use a 3rd party micropayment wallet like CoinPot or FaucetHub. While this might seem to be a hassle at first, it’s actually a great convenience since you have all of your claims concentrated in one or two sites. This makes it much easier to withdraw and track your money.

Also, since the faucet industry is known to be a bit shady, things can change relatively quick. So, make sure to check out the terms of each faucet you use. Here are the main things to look out for:

Claim amount – How many Satoshis do you get per claim?

Timer – How long do you need to wait between claims?

Minimum withdraw – What is the minimum amount from which you can withdraw your balance?

Withdrawal method – Are payments done directly, or through a micropayment wallet?

Referral fee – What’s the fee you get for referring new users to the faucet?


1. Cointiply

The new king of Bitcoin faucets is undoubtedly Cointiply. The site was founded in the beginning of 2018 and has been growing ever since. With a sleek interface and multiple methods for claiming Bitcoins, Contiply has it all. The site’s faucet allows you to claim 200 Satoshis on average every 60 minutes. Aside from the faucet, you will also find the following methods available on Cointiply for earning Bitcoins:

  • Watching videos
  • Offer walls
  • Pay to Click ads
  • Browser games

For those who are looking to test their luck there’s also a coin multiplier function inside the site. Cointiply has been known to be relatively stable, with an almost 100% uptime according to FaucetHub.

Coins can be withdrawn to FaucetHub (a micropayment web wallet) as soon as you reach 35,000 Satoshis. If you have over 100,000 Satoshis, you can also withdraw directly to your Bitcoin wallet.


2. BonusBitcoin

The oldest website in our list, BonusBitcoin has went through many iterations until it arrived at its final form. The site’s main feature is a faucet that allows you to claim every 15 minutes, with an average claim of 24 Satoshis. There is also a coin multiplier and a surveys/offers section on the site, for those who want to increase their earnings.

BonusBitcoin accounts are connected to CoinPot, a micro earnings wallet that accumulates your payouts. I have to say that CoinPot has many bugs and taking money out of it can be a hassle, however, in the end it works. CoinPot has a minimum withdraw limit of 10K Satoshis with a fee and 50K Satoshis without a fee.


3. Bitcoinker

This used to be sort of a twin faucet to BitcoinZebra (now closed). Bitcoinker has changed a few hands and became a twin of our very own faucet (also closed). You can win up to 100K Satoshis every 5 minutes, with the average payout being around 7 Satoshis. Referral commissions are 10% and you can get seniority bonuses up to 25% for using the faucet long term.

Payment are done weekly directly to your Bitcoin wallet with a minimum withdrawal of 20K Satoshis.


4. Blockchain poker

If you’re tired of aimlessly clicking on claim buttons, you can visit Blockchain poker. The site is a  single-table, No-Limit Texas Hold’em cash game, playing for real bitcoins. There are no sign-ups, which means players can remain anonymous. New players are automatically awarded free satoshis to play with, allowing anyone to jump in and play (even if they don’t have any bitcoin). If you drop below 50 Satoshis you can use the faucet to top up your balance to 100 (limited to once every 3 minutes).

Players can choose to play with either Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Minimum withdrawal is relatively high at 100K. Additionally, there’s always the chance of fraud by users who set up multiple accounts and sit at the same table. All in all this is a refreshing alternative to the standard faucet.


5. Moon Bitcoin

Moon Bitcoin is another veteran faucet that has been around since 2015. The faucet allows you to claim satoshis every 5 minutes, with the average claim being around 10 Satoshis. You can also run CPU mining in the background to increase your claims.

Moon Bitcoin uses CoinPot (similar to BonusBitcoin) in order to pay out users. CoinPot has a minimum withdraw limit of 10K Satoshis with a fee and 50K Satoshis without a fee.


6. FreeBitcoin

FreeBitcoin was established in mid 2018. It allows users to draw a random number in order to win a certain amount of Satoshis. You can roll a number once every 60 minutes and the prizes range between $0.0003 to $300.

Withdrawals can be done once you reach $1 worth of Bitcoin and they are sent directly to your Bitcoin wallet.


7. BitFun

BitFun is a website that allows you to claim Bitcoin through playing games, viewing offers or rolling dice. There is a variety of options and for each one the claiming time and payout is different.

The site is connected to CoinPot and withdrawal can be made once you’ve reached a minimum of 10K Satoshis.


8. SatoshiLabs

SatoshiLabs (not to be confused with the company SatoshiLabs that made the TREZOR hardware wallet) is a faucet that allows you to claim 5-15 Satoshis every 5 minutes. Minimum withdrawal is 5K Satoshi. The site also offers a bunch of options to increase your claim amount.


Conclusion – You don’t have to choose just one

I’ve covered a variety of good faucets in this post. Just remember, you don’t have to choose just one faucet. You can always open multiple tabs and switch between faucets as you’re waiting for the timer to reset on the ones you’ve already claimed.

Faucets are a no-brainer method for claiming Bitcoin. Sure, you won’t get much, but they also don’t take a lot of your time. If you’re using any other faucet that I didn’t mention in this post, feel free to tell me about it in the comment section below (but keep in mind that if you’re using a referral link it will be removed).

Happy fauceting!
