Some of the offers, such as Coinbase Earn will require you to take quizzes to receive free crypto in return. Other sign-up/referral offers such as BlockFi or Celsius may require you to make a deposit first. There are many platforms and methods to earning free crypto, and the platforms I have put together in this guide I have personally used and benefited from. I’ve included some of the latest offers, however, these are subject to change.
Please beware when signing up to platforms offering free crypto or signup offers. Do your own research and remember if it sounds too good to be true, it normally is!
Coinbase $10 Free BTC
Coinbase is a cryptocurrency exchange that offers a couple of different ways to get free crypto. Firstly, new users signing up to the platform and using it to trade funds can get free BTC. To qualify simply register for a new account with a referral link and then create a buy or sell order with $100 or more within 180 days of opening into the account you can get your hands on $10 worth of Bitcoin. Once you’re signed up you can also share your link with friends and family too.
And once you’ve got your account with Coinbase there’s further earning potentials with Coinbase Earn.
Coinbase Earn – $171+
Coinbase receives a lot of negative press from the community, but their Coinbase Earn program is probably the best way to earn free crypto and helps to expose newbies to a wider range of tokens. Coinbase gives away free crypto for simply learning about crypto, answering questions correctly, and in return earn free rewards. Plus you can take the quiz as many times as you need, to pass. This is one of the best options as involves no deposits, or funds to get started.
Coinbase Earn has included the like of Maker, Celo, Compound, EOS, and Stellar Lumens. Where you could have earned up to $59 in COMP tokens, $50 with EOS and Stellar Lumens. There are limits to Coinbase Earn, so make sure you keep an eye out for new tokens and get in there first before the offer runs out.
Whether your new to crypto or an experienced trader the likelihood Is that you’ve got a blockchain.com wallet. But you may not be aware they also have airdrops, letting you test trade and transact with the next generation of crypto assets before you decide to buy or mine them.
During the airdrop, millions of blockchain wallet users get free crypto at the same time. Unfortunately, these aren’t as frequently available as the Coinbase earn options as so far there’s only been 2 airdrops. However, their first was with Stellar Lumens where 375 million XLM were airdropped, the second was Blockstack.
To qualify for the blockchain airdrop, users will need to be gold level verified within their wallets which involves some further identity and verification. This won’t be for those trying to protect their anonymity but a good option to get started especially if you already have the wallet, plus again you don’t need any collateral to receive these.
