And now, this week’s Bitcoin Quick Question is: Is it possible to get Bitcoin for free?
Well, if there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that nothing comes for free. Bitcoin is just like any other real money so there is no fast and easy way to earn them.
But, to answer the question: yes – there are several ways to acquire Bitcoins for free.
For example, you can visit Bitcoin faucet sites. These sites will give you a small amount of Bitcoins just for visiting them.
There are also ways you can shop online and receive Bitcoin cashbacks for products you were going to buy anyway.
However, the best way would be to take surveys, watch videos and most importantly – learn.
Coinbase and OKEx, for example, released an academy that pays you in tokens to learn about their underlying technologies.
