I appreciate all of the responses. Yeah, I was really just looking for any exchange offers of seed money that I could quickly turn around to make some free crypto purchases. Not really looking to trade, more interested in accumulation and HODLing - so I figured a free $25 here or $50 there is worth looking into. I keep very little on the exchanges I have signed up with - and dump most of what I accumulate onto a hardware wallet.

I am looking for suggestions of legitimate crypto exchanges that reward new accounts with a signup bonus (if any) upon minimum deposit/confirmation. I know that eToro has been running a $50 bonus upon a deposit of $50 - that sort of thing or something similar is what I am trying to find.  I don't have a lot of cash to invest, but I figured this might be an easy way to make a minimal amount of 2 for 1 (or whatever ratio it turns out to be) profit. There are enough bitcoin multiplier scams out there promising outrageous returns just waiting to part the unsuspecting and trusting fool from his money, but what about these legitimate exchange signup bonuses?

Withdrawals via BTC is back. As faucethub closed. We are now paying through instant BTC payment again.

Best regards

I have made several attempts to withdraw BTC this month. My Clixcoin account reached well above the minimum ~47,000. Every attempt to withdraw "instant BTC" has failed. No response to my support requests using the contact form on the faucet site.  Angry What a letdown this site has become...

This faucet has been "under maintenance" for several months and appears to be dead/inactive. Undecided

Sounds good. Thank you for the quick explanations. As suggested, I will [try to] lock this thread.

I have not been here in a few weeks or more - busy with other things.  I had exactly 60 posts and enough merit that I was a bona-fide Member!  I came over today to look for something specific and was going to scroll back through some of my prior posts to try to find it. On my profile summary I saw that I was only credited with 59 posts!  One of them disappeared and I don't know when, how, or why!  So that's also when I saw :::GASP::: that I was demoted to a Jr. Member!  (Oh the horror!)

No big deal. I'm just wondering out of curiosity - under what circumstances does a user's post count decrease? I didn't delete anything myself that I am aware of. Was there maybe something removed by a moderator, or maybe an entire thread that I had posted in was deleted and I was docked as a result?

As I said, it's not a big deal. This post should bump me back up in status either way.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Ranking up is Possible! My top 6 Hints! on: February 28, 2019, 08:35:51 PM
I was just one post shy of reaching Member status and I figured I would probably find something worthy and appropriate to respond to in the Meta boards. It didn't take me long to find the most appropriate thread subject line: Ranking up is Possible! 

I would echo all of fillippone's top hints and can personally endorse each one as true and on point.  I've reached some of the same conclusions myself, and have voiced some of the same ideas in a few of my own earlier remarks elsewhere.

I will now set my sights on reaching the "Full Member" status - but will get there in my own time and at my own pace... Smiley
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What determines the newbie experience when they first come to bitcoin? on: February 28, 2019, 08:12:01 PM
For me it began as a money making opportunity. I'd heard of Bitcoin, but never really investigated it - primarily because I knew it was something I wouldn't truly understand. So I never really followed any news on it. I had been doing a lot of online PTC and survey sites to earn spare spending money dating back to about 2010. Every now and then I would come across ad sites for BTC, but I was just looking to get a few pennies here and there so I rarely paid attention to the ad content.

In the late summer of 2017, one of the sites I visited frequently stopped using PayPal as a source to cash out earnings, but they were pushing the Bitcoin cashout option hard, so I looked into and figured I could afford to 'risk' a $25ish payout on this crazy Internet money that I knew nothing about.

With very little money to actively invest, but a history of using PTC sites, I just naturally gravitated toward the crypto faucets. Soon afterward I found bitcointalk and decided to lurk around a bit.  After making a few posts here and there and a little bit of effort - I'm now just about ready to sprout my Member wings! Cheesy

I was quite surprised when I found out that the itchy sensation you get when seeing or even talking about bugs is very common and frankly, very normal.

Big thanks to you for making my skin start itching after reading this post! It was a curious enough thread title, so I had to open it up and read! Embarrassed

I have received several different email variations of this same basic premise.  I have yet to have any videos of me enjoying a porn site a little too much sent to my co-workers and associates. So I hope I am in the clear!  Wink

One of Smollett's siblings was quoted after the truth began to leak out about the hoax: "This is the media, the irresponsible media. It will make the criminal look like he's the victim and make the victim look like he's the criminal."  (Mind you, he is speaking of the same media who covered the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and the Covington Catholic high school confrontation - so I suppose he has a point).

you all dont understand how to solve the captcha.....
You have to press the yellow "verify me" button then a new window appears wait 6 second then press the green "done , close" button on the new window.
Then the captcha is solved and showing green "verified" .

The reason is a security think be course i have massive fraud activities amongst other things there is a bot witch can easy bypass solvemedia.


Thanks. Actually, I knew EXACTLY how to solve the captcha (and had successfully done so several times before it stopped working). MAYBE it was something specific to me or my machine, but AFTER clicking the yellow button, watching the ad and closing the ad page, and returning to the main page on your faucet = the "verifying" status continued for several minutes without ever completing "verification". I shouldn't have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for the completed captcha to verify...

Security and fraud prevention are fine and you are absolutely entitled to that. But when it doesn't work - it doesn't work. It had nothing to do with not understanding how to do it.

Now I see the other captcha options back up where I can choose which one I want to complete. That is a MUCH BETTER option. Thank you.
13  Economy / Games and rounds / Re: - BTC Generator - Videos - Offers - JACKPOT - Loyalty Bonus on: February 20, 2019, 12:31:09 AM
Don't like that the only captcha is Ad captcha which tried to lock my browser with a fake virus warning so I guess I'm out until a different captcha comes back (I liked the choose captcha). The ad captcha is just another way to make more money.

Ad Captcha will not work for me. Waiting and waiting and waiting for it to confirm and it never does.  Sad that I will likely lose my loyalty bonus due to this bad captcha. Why is the other captcha not available as an option?

...if you're holding huge amounts of bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general, as always, I heavily suggest purchasing a hardware wallet like the Trezor[1] or the Ledger Nano S[2] *** If you don't hold much bitcoin, like probably sub $500, a mobile wallet like Mycelium[3] should be enough.

I get that you are just talking in generalities here, but I am curious as to what you consider to be "huge amounts" so as to warrant a hardware wallet and how you came up with the sub $500 in value suitable for a more economical mobile wallet (with the supposed implication that the higher security hardware wallet is not really necessary for anything below $500).   

[disclosure = not my intention to attack your logic or reasoning, because you obviously have to draw the line somewhere]

I'm going to guess your rationale is probably based on the cost of a Trezor or Ledger itself... If you only have $500 in BTC value - why would you spend roughly 20% of that on a more secure wallet when there are any other less expensive options out there?  Seems a bit expensive!

But the guy who today holds $500 in BTC had nearly $3000 in value for the same amount of BTC just over a year ago (if my math is right). Buying a hardware wallet would have cost the same amount in fiat money on both ends of that timeline, but the value of the cryptos on it has changed drastically. It has fallen, but according to many it can rise back up to and surpass that high water mark. Nobody knows for sure how much value the HODL guy with $500 in current BTC stands to lose if he chooses a less secure storage method for his Bitcoin in February of 2019 and is subsequently hacked or loses his paper wallet and then somehow John McAfee's li'l buddy is spared and the BTC price skyrockets!

I guess what I am saying is that if it is worth protecting, it is worth protecting ...  ... within reason - I wouldn't recommend someone buy a hardware wallet to store 10,000 satoshi.  But in saying that, I suppose I've done the very same thing as you in making a personal judgment on what amount is worth protecting and what amount is just throwing it all away.

(Just for frame of reference, I'm holding less than $300 in BTC and I have all but a very small amount of it on a Trezor).

How you got 2000+ satoshi a day. I have clicked on all ads a whole day and only got 500 satoshi.

@phpdev, Did you happen to notice that the OP claiming 2000+ satoshi posted in May of 2017? Being more than a year and a half ago and with the way that faucet payouts fluctuate based upon BTC values, it is not all that surprising that OP got over 2000 satoshi a day and you are only getting 500 in February of 2019.

Coinstar machines will start selling Bitcoin at the grocery store

I was moderately excited when I recently read this news a week or two ago and decided to look into it further to see where and how long it might be before one of these popped up locally for me.

So I read the article linked above, and followed an internal link in the article to a "Coinstar Bitcoin Locator Tool" (which proved to be fruitless and a waste of time) and they both seem to say that you will need to use paper money at these Coinstar kiosks to buy BTC. So unless I am missing something here, it really is just another BTC ATM (with the associated high fees) and not a place where I can dump in my bottles of spare change for direct conversion into BTC.

I suppose you can maybe convert coins into cash and then cash into crypto in a two step process, but no doubt there will be two sets of fees for each conversion.  I can reluctantly deal with one high transaction fee, but two??   Sad    My pennies might be better served to just continue sitting in the water bottle.

So... maybe I should dump my (very small) cache of ETH and invest in some EOS...   Undecided

If your opinions are swayed by just a topic post like this, then it looks like you're not doing your own research and should not be investing in the first place.

It was just a comment, not a life changing course of action. But thanks (genuinely thanks) for the concern. Truth be told - I am not investing in anything at this point other than BTC. I have bits of fractions of alt coins, a very small percentage of which is in ETH.

Can anyone tell me what the minimum withdrawal amounts are? I do not see that information anywhere on the game site.

This is a new auto faucet that I am excited to try. It looks fairly straight forward and is worth a test run. Time will tell!
