1  Other / Beginners & Help / Review: Earning a steady income in bitcoins with faucets - A personal experience on: December 15, 2017, 07:12:32 PM
This is for those who are thinking of doing faucets and wonder if itís worth it.

I have to start with pointing out that Iím making a *steady* bitcoin income and not a get-rich-quick sort of income.

First of all, I think doing faucet is not as time wasting as everyone is claiming to be. I started with nothing in July, and 5 months on, in December, I have close to 0.01BTC which is worth close to 200 US dollars depending on the rate right now.

And thatís only with 8 faucets [I was doing only a couple of faucets for the first month]. I have been very cautious with the faucets I join as I donít want to have unwanted or malicious ads. And I havenít been active at promoting for referrals, I have little to none referrals.

My strategy has been to focus on bitcoin [I convert all my alt coin faucet earnings to bitcoins], I use the browser mining feature whenever I can, and I keep most of my bitcoins at FreeBitco.in to earn interest - every bit counts.

Although the rise in my earnings is also due to the rise in the bitcoin value, that is part of the process which is the whole point really. You can make more by joining more faucets and making more claims. It helps if you are already spending lots of time on your computer. And since most of them offer referral bonus, if you have a huge social network or if youíre good at promoting affiliate programs you can earn even more residual income.

I find that patience is a virtue since I donít use bots to make claims - to those who are new to faucets, you shouldnít use bots, you could get banned. I have to be diligent in keeping track of the time since most faucets only allow one claim after certain intervals - for example my favourite FreeBitco.in only allow one claim every hour. Donít forget to use your smartphone; I find that since itís with me all the time, itís the quickest way to make a claim especially when Iím outside or sleeping [I make a claim whenever Iím awake  Grin]. Other than the time, you also have to be patient with pop-up ads and the captchas, especially reCaptcha which can get quite ístickyí if you make a claim too often, which by the way is allowed by some faucets.

Of course your experience may be different from mine. But overall I think from 0 to 0.01BTC in five months is not that bad considering Iím only earning passively.
