Do you recommend using Bitcoin Faucets as a newb, or are they not worth the effort? They seem like a better way to get free bitcoins versus mining them.

Also, how to these faucet sites make money? Is it just ad revenue?

Thanks

You're better off pan handling, seriously these faucets are a major waste of time. The most you can make in 3 months is probably a cent.

Its just ad revenue they make money off. They arent really worth your time. You can visit a few just to make your first transaction between wallets if youre unsure. I wouldnt visit them any more than that though.

I hadn't thought of that. I can get the feel for how to transfer money between wallets. Thanks

they use ad revenue to make money, yes. i do not recommend them. check out the gambling section for some free bitcents.  Smiley

Yeah bitcoin faucets aren't worth the time or energy. You would be better off selling goods on a marketplace like Bitmit or maybe sell your skills to other forum users on the Services section.

There was a time when I would waste time on faucets. Back then, even, they gave you more. There are much better ways to get BTC, I think. I do think, though, that we could use a better job market!  Smiley

Just like everyone else said, kind of a waste of time. Might be okay to start off with getting some BTCs just to see how it works.
But click on the thread in my signature.

What i'd recommend is getting familiar with bitcoins, post a bit more in this forum, and then go over to the gambling forum.  There are many sites that will give you free BTCs (like 0.01BTCs) to play around with their sites.

I don't see how any of these faucets could be worth someone's time (unless they are running a bot, which they shouldn't be).

Bitcoin Faucets are for newbies to make a small set of change... Not to make you rich...

Mining is too tough if you don't have the money for big rigs
Bitcoin can get expensive ($200/Coin)

Faucets, when used a lot can make you a nifty little chunk of change... Especially if there are MANY Faucets that rotate Smiley

I made US$1 in 3 days just "opening" faucets. I'm on these sites just to know what's going on transactions. I think it's worth for a totally noob like me.

There are many rotators which can be found in project development.

So far I think the fastest way I have made Bitcoins is by using PeerBets, and I have been using it less than a day. It also helps that it is fun. I am also giving PrimeDice a go.

This, just to find out how BTC works.

I requested few when I started to test how BTC works - and with the small incomes from faucets, prepare to pay fees, a lot of fees  Cheesy.

My tip would be to focus on "high variance" ones : instead of playing 10 faucets that pay 200 satoris everyday with a payout once you reach 15000, find some where you can earn much more, even with small odds. IMHO, they are better worth your time.

Its a waste of time, but like the guy above me said you can always choose the best few out of the 100 faucets. Which you don't spend much time and can have some small amount of BTC...
