Work for Bitcoins – 4 Ways to Earn Bitcoin Online


Whether you want to work inside the Bitcoin industry or just do some gigs for Bitcoins more and more options are available. Following our post about how to earn free Bitcoins I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about this so today I will review what Bitcoin jobs are actually our there.

Find work inside the Bitcoin industry

One of the hottest trends that the Bitcoin phenomenon has brought with it is the search for Bitcoin jobs. The phrase “Bitcoin Jobs” is searched roughly 2,000 times each month and is clearly on the rise (according to Google’s Keword Planner):

If you are looking for actual full time work in the Bitcoin industry here are some places to keep an eye on.

Coinality is a website that lists various Bitcoin jobs for developers, writers, brokers, marketers and more. You can also follow it’s twitter profile in order to get live job updates.

Another great way to find Bitcoin jobs is through freelancer websites such as Upwork, Freelancer and Elance. Although Coinality usually consolidates those as well, you may still use different filters on these website so find the best fit for you. Another way to go would be to search Indeed for Bitcoin jobs. Indeed is one of the leading job boards around the world.

Lately I’ve also been informed the Cointelegraph is working on a new HR service for Bitcoin related jobs. I’ve checked it out but I guess it’s still in early stages.

Work for Bitcoins Online

If you’re just interested in making some Bitcoins you have several options. A sub Reddit called Jobs2Bitcoins displays a Bitcoin job board where you can exchange your skills for Bitcoins. BitGigs is website that is similar to Fiverr where people post what they are willing to do for a small amount of Bitocins. You can try to become a seller on BitGigs but I don’t think the site has that much traffic.

XBTFreelancer is a 100% Bitcoin only freelancing site, you can post jobs paid solely in bitcoin and freelancers on the other end get paid in Bitcoin only.

Exchange your time for Bitcoins

The last type of method to earn Bitcoin is through wasting your time on the Internet.  I call it “wasting your time” since these types of jobs usually have you going around clicking on links or watching pointless ads. Still, if this is something you’d like to pursue, here are your options (for the record I would stay away from any of these):

BitVisitor | VisitBit – Pays you Bitcoins for visiting other websites.

CoinWorker – Complete short analytical tasks online, earn points and convert them to Bitcoins.

CoinAd |  BtcClicks – Get paid for watching ads.

Earn Bitcoins by helping people on forums

Probably the most interesting way I’ve encountered to earn Bitcoins is through what is known as a signature campaign inside the BitcoinTalk forum. The basic idea is that if you’re an active BitcoinTalk forum member you can place a link in your signature promoting a company and get paid by them. The payment usually corresponds to your BitcoinTalk member level, so if you’re a Newbie you will earn less than a Hero Member. Here’s a complete list of all signature campaigns available on the forum.

Blogger and owner of 99Bitcoins. I've been dealing with Bitcoin since the beginning of 2013 and it taught me a lesson in finance that I couldn't get anywhere else on the planet. I'm not a techie, I don't understand "Hashes" and "Protocols", I designed this website with people like myself in mind. My expertise is online marketing and I've dedicated a large portion of 99Bitcoins to Bitcoin marketing.

      Hi Sushil, if you want to work for bitcoins, you need to find someone to pay you in them. There are couple of options listed in this article, please go through it. Also, please let us know if you have any further questions.

  1. Hi i’m looking for a remote sysadmin job if anyone knows where i can find it i’ll appreciate that. Thanks in advance.

    • Ofir Beigel on

      Hey Waseem, we send out the coins every 24 hours. If you still don’t get them by then please contact us.

  2. If you have nothing better to do you sign-up to sites that rely on gullible folks to click their ads or do random tasks. The effort simply doesn’t add up to the few points you get after clicking for hours and some of them require you to reach an insane amount of points in order to cash in; this means people sign up and when they see they’ve been tricked they abandon their account so their points remain there.

    Reddit is the best resource of jobs that pay you Bitcoins and it seems to be the most reliable thus far. If you can’t afford to buy Bitcoins but you want to add up to your wallet, these jobs are perfect but you still have to keep an open eye for those who want to scam you.

  4. Victoria Garcia on

    I just checked Coinality’s Twitter without expecting to find interesting jobs but in less than one minute I managed to find something for me, now I’m waiting for a reply to my proposal. They have tons of jobs and surprisingly plenty of them are in the graphic designer field so hopefully I’ll find something soon.

  5. Haha, I’m a newbie myself and your last option seems to be the most effective one! I already spend a nice amount of time on BitcoinTalk, so why not make the most of it? It seems they have a lot of signature-ad campaigns and the payment is quite decent. Thanks, Ofir!

  6. All sites that require that you click on ads, watch videos, fill forms and so on are indeed a huge waste of time, regardless of the way they pay you. You spend hours glued to your laptop’s screen and end up with half a buck. Been there, done that, but I won’t do it again.

    I never heard of Bitgigs, I like the idea of doing small tasks and being paid for it as it doesn’t take up too much of my time. I just registered on their site and browsing around for gig ideas. Unfortunately, like you said, it doesn’t seem to be that popular yet.

    My new employer offered me to be paid in BTC. I agreed. Now I found out, that here in germany it means that I would have to pay 19% VAT when selling my BTC for EUR (in order to pay my rent, taxes, healthcare, …). For details:
    (sorry only in german, but you can use google translate to get an idea)
    So we are about to change the contract, so I will be paid in EUR. Sadly.

      • Christoph Jentzsch on

        I work as a freelancer. So I just write an invoice. Its like paying everything else. The only thing he would have to care about is the VAT. Since I would have to add that on my price, and he could get it back from the tax authorities.
        The regulations in germany is simple but fatal. BTC is not a currency, it is an object. Like gold. And it is not VAT free. That means, if you are a businees and will sell BTC, you have to add VAT to the price. So youre hard earned money, in form of BTC, is valued 19% (our VAT) less than EUR.

        • thinking that bitcoin will be worth much more in the future, I might take a portion in bitcoin, like a pention or 401k
