If you’re a cryptocurrency fan, you probably already encountered many Bitcoin faucets. Bitcoin faucets are websites that supply you with free BTC, usually in exchange for solving a captcha or visiting another site every few hours.
In the past, we’ve also reviewed a list of 70 faucets that still supply small amounts of free Bitcoins.
As Bitcoin becomes more and more popular, the number of faucets keep growing. In fact, many of the Bitcoin websites with the highest levels of traffic today are actually faucets (e.g. Bitcoin Aliens, Bitcoin Zebra, Moon Bitcoin).
Why should you build a Bitcoin faucet (i.e. how will this make you rich)?
There can be several reason why you’d want to operate a Bitcoin faucet.
First, you might be doing it just for fun. Second, you might want to educate people about Bitcoin and help spread the word. For example, the original Bitcoin faucet was operated by Gavin Andresen, Bitcoin Foundation’s chief scientist. It started out around late 2010 and it gave visitors five Bitcoins for free.
