We have just launched CoinByCall.com
Turn your unlimited/free minutes plan into BTC or LTC! No expensive premium numbers, just normal landline numbers that are included in your plan and are therefore free to call for you. We pay out every 5 minutes at a configurable threshold as low as 0.01 BTC / 0.5 LTC.
Currently available countries as of this writing: Austria, Finland, Germany, Liechtenstein, Morocco.FAQHow does CoinByCall work?
CoinByCall allows you to earn BTC/LTC by calling landline (a.k.a. fixed-line) telephone numbers in several countries. CoinByCall only makes economically sense for you if you hold an unlimited/free landline minutes plan from your mobile/landline/VoIP provider. If you should have unlimited or free minutes when calling landlines in any of the countries that we currently offer, then you can actually transform your free minutes into BTC/LTC. Let's say you are with T-Mobile in Germany and you pay 5 EUR per month for your unlimited minutes plan, which includes all calls to landline numbers within Germany. At our current payout rate of around 0.000048 BTC per minute, which translates into 0.0015 USD (0.0011 EUR) at the time of this writing, you could call our German landline numbers for 4600 minutes and you would have refinanced your plan. Every minute that you call on top of that is BTC/LTC in your pocket.How is this possible? How does CoinByCall earn money?
When you call our numbers you will find that we actually broadcast the livestream of a larger radio station in the particular country that you called. The radio stations pay us a small amount for every new listener respectively for every minute a new listener stays connected to their stream, and we pass on the better part of that amount to you.Will you sell my number, send me unsolicited SMS, spam, advertisements etc.?
No, we won't. If you're worried, just don't transmit your caller ID. And if you're even more worried, you could just get a prepaid SIM card with an unlimited plan and use that for calling.How often/long can I call?
We don't impose any limitations. But most providers will disconnect you after 120 minutes. You can just redial afterwards.Can I call simultaneously from different lines/SIMs/providers?
Yes, no limitations there either.How/when will I get paid?
Set the currency you want to get paid in, either BTC or LTC. Set the threshold you want to get paid at. Once your balance has reached the threshold, the amount will be sent to your BTC or LTC address automatically. We process the payouts automatically every 5 minutes, 24 hours per day. Please note that each user has 2 balances, one for BTC and for LTC which cannot be converted to each other. We recommend that you already make up your mind in the beginning whether you want to receive BTC or LTC, but of course you are free to switch anytime.Can I send you massive amounts of calls/minutes and get rich?
Theoretically, yes. But in practive, massive amounts of minutes usually means that the caller hacked into a PBX or into multiple Skype accounts and is now abusing these "free" minutes. Do NOT do that! FRAUDULENT CALLS WILL NOT GET PAID FOR! Plus, you put our service at risk, so in your own interest please do not send us stolen minutes. We observe incoming minutes/calls carefully based on several criteria and reserve the right to not pay you. In any case we will get in touch via eMail if there should be some anomalies. However, we don't have a problem if you tell your friends and family to buy prepaid SIM cards and if they call us using your CoinByCall PIN. Keep in mind that the stations pay us for real, unique listeners!I don't have unlimited/free minutes to any of the countries you currently offer. Can you add my country?
Yes, there's a good chance that we can add your country. Contact us at CoinByCall@gmail.com
or just post in this thread.I'm getting tired of entering my PIN every time I call. Can I automate this?
Yes, you can. Insert a pause sign between the number and your PIN code when saving the number in your contacts. For example +431200531234p525252 where 525252 is your PIN code. Use Google or look in your phones manual to find out how to insert a pause sign for your specific phone model.
