What are faucets?
A faucet is a website which allows its visitors to obtain coins by doing simple tasks like viewing advertisements or solving captchas. Through this process visitors can earn small portions of cryptocurrency without investing real money. Depending on the time used to claim on faucets, the amount of earned cryptocoins increases. To finance running a faucet advertisements are displayed. The claim a visitor receives is a portion of the income the owner of the faucets makes.
The payout of faucets varies and is tied to the current price of the coin which is claimable. Further important points in selecting a suitable faucet are the minimum withdrawel amount, the payout rate and automatic mining scripts.
In order to classify services, we review them. If you want us to review a faucet you found or founded get in contact with us.
What do you need to get started?
Before starting to claim from faucets, you need to setup a wallet. If you haven’t got a wallet, please see our guide on wallets first. This guide will show you step-by-step how to either register for one or how to generate it yourself.
After obtaining a key pair for a cryptocurrency, it’s time to select a faucet to claim coins. We have collected a list of faucets for different types of coins and even selected a few which we consider to be suited best for claiming: Top Faucets.
What are “Faucet Networks”?
Most faucets don’t pay out directly to your address, but instead transfer the coins to your microwallet at a “Faucet Network”. This way you can keep track of your claims or use additional services of these networks like lotteries or exchanges to maximize your payout. You don’t have to decide between one of these networks because you can use them at the same time.
The FaucetHub microwallets allows the collection of claims of a huge palette of cryptocurrencies. The following coins are currently available: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Bitcoin Cash, BitCore, Blackcoin, Dash, Peercoin and Primecoin.
The dashboard provides an overview of your current level, your experience and your balances.
In order to use the microwallet, you need a wallet for the currencies which you would like to claim. If you haven’t got a wallet, you can follow our guide on wallets.
The wallet address needs to be linked to your account on FaucetHub. This can be done using the tab “Wallet Addresses”.
Simply enter the public key of your wallet, select the currency and use the button “Link This Address”.
The CoinPot microwallet allows the claiming of Bitcoin Core, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Litecoin and Dash. It features a neat dashboard which displays the balance of all currencies and a list of recent transactions.
Free withdrawal is possible to a personal wallet when reaching the minimum amount.
