By: Ofir Beigel | Last updated: 2/10/22
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. This post will cover the most popular and profitable faucets around.
Best Bitcoin Faucets Summary
While the faucet landscape is constantly changing you likely won’t go wrong with these faucets:
If you want a more detailed review of each faucet and how you can earn Bitcoins with them keep on reading. Here’s what I’ll cover:
- What is a Bitcoin Faucet
- Blockchain Poker
- Frequently Asked Questions
Initially faucets were created in order to spread the adoption of Bitcoin around the Internet. The original Bitcoin faucet was made by then Bitcoin Core developer Gavin Andresen and, believe it or not, it used to dispense 5 whole Bitcoins to each user.
Since then faucets have become more business oriented. Today, faucets are sites that dispense a small amount of Bitcoin to users every few minutes while making money from displaying ads to these users. As long as the site owner is making more money from ads than what he’s giving out to his users, he remains profitable.
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 quickly. 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?
Cointiply 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 directly to your Bitcoin wallet as soon as you reach 50,000 Satoshis.
Blockchain poker 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 30 minutes).
Players can choose to play with either Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), or Bitcoin SV (BSV).
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. However, in general this is a refreshing alternative to the standard faucet.
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.
SatoshiLabs (not to be confused with the company SatoshiLabs that made the TREZOR hardware wallet) is a faucet that allows you to claim 10-30 Satoshis every 5 minutes. Minimum withdrawal is 5K Satoshi. The site also offers a bunch of options to increase your claim amount.
FreeBitcoins (not to be confused with FreeBitcoin, above) is a Bitcoin faucet that provides free Bitcoin to users who have registered on the website’s XChange. Rather than using a Bitcoin address directly, users will submit their XChange username to receive a set amount of 10 Satoshis.
Accounts are only eligible if they are more than 24 hours old and have enabled 2-factor authentication (2FA).

- Writing about Bitcoin
- Bitcoin related services

You can read about all of these methods here.
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).
