There are plenty of websites that will pay out tiny amounts of bitcoin for visiting the site and completing a simple puzzle. If you take all of the opportunities below, you could earn 0.003 BTC, which is worth about 30p. It really isn't worth investing your time in this, but if you are interested in finding out more about the Bitcoin digital currency, try some of the sites below.
These are known as Bitcoin faucets (or taps, as we'd say in the UK). You just paste in your Bitcoin receiving address, solve a puzzle and click.
The sites listed below have been tested and provide reliable payouts.
|Site||Amount per visit||Visit freq||Payout freq||Notes||Last payout to us|
|Hour||Request||The site says you may get a prize bigger than the normal 10 µBTC, but I have never seen one of these.||11th April|
|bitcoins4.me||2.5 µBTC||Hour||Day||You can save up payments and pay on request||20th April|
|Request||If you don't set up an account, you can only visit once per day.||

|Bitcoiner||3.73 to 4.67 µBTC||Day||Request||14th April|
|Bunny Run||4 to 10 µBTC||Day||Day||
You pick one of four bunnies who then have a race.

|Netlookup free Bitcoins*||0.2 µBTC||Day||Week||Very low earnings - less than 2 µBTC a week if you do this every day||22nd April|
|Cointicket||5 µBTC||Day||Week||Site is a bit elusive about how much it pays. You get 10 tickets per day, which it says are worth between 1 to 5 µBTC (in total). In one week it paid 39.2 µBTC||3rd June|
|Coinreaper||4 to 20 µBTC||Day||Day||After paying a bonus itself, this handy site automatically takes you to several other sites in turn: Bunny Run, Netlookup, Daily Bitcoins, CoinAd, Bitcoiner, Cointicket, Bitcoins4.me (and Bitcrate, but that rarely has anything to pay out)||1st June|
|BitcoinAR||0.2 µBTC||Day||Day||Very low earnings. Since 17th April the site says that it pays every 12 hours, but it still only allows one claim per day.||24th April|
|BTC4You||0.1 µBTC||30 mins||Day||Ridiculously low earnings!||5th May|
|FreeBitcoins.me||0.1 µBTC||30 mins||Day||Says it pays 2 µBTC per click, but actually pays 0.1 µBTC which is ridiculously low.||Never|

|VirtualFaucet||0.5 µBTC||30 mins||Day||Low earnings||5th May|

|CanHasBitcoin||?||30 mins||Day?||Being researched||Never|
|ElBitcoinGratis||1 µBTC||30 mins||Day||5th May|
|FreeCoins||50 µBTC||Once||After the first use, it will tell you that this address has already been used.|
These sites show you a website for a few minutes, then when the time is up, you click to get paid and are taken to the next site.
|Site||Average daily earnings||Sites per day||Time per site||Payout freq||Notes||Last payout to us|
|BitVisitor*||94 µBTC||8||5 mins||Day||Has a good number of sites to visit and a decent payout.||31st May|
|EarnFreeBitcoins*||18 µBTC||3||3 mins||Day||Some sites are 1 minute||31st May|
|130 µBTC||6||10 secs||Request||
Payments are normally 8 or 16 µBTC per site. Every few days we get a prize amount of 2-4 µBTC.
Very rarely, a site will make you wait 5 or 10 minutes instead of the usual 10 seconds, but there is a much higher payout to compensate. The highest we have got in 480 µBTC.
|Easybitco.in*||US$0.0016||7||10 secs to 9 mins||Request||
Earnings are measured in US Dollars, and can be converted to Bitcoins when you get to $3.00, which at the current rate of earning will take just over 5 years.
|Balance not high enough to request|
Tip: You don't have to sit mindlessly looking at each site for several minutes. You can do all three sites at the same time in separate browser tabs. Easybitco.in is a bit cleverer and it notices if you switch away from the tab, so open it in a separate browser window instead.
|Site||Amount earned per video||Notes||Last payout to us|
|CoinTube.tv*||10 µBTC||Pays for watching videos||31st May|
|BitcoinGet||20 to 32 µBTC||Usually 2-4 videos per day. If no videos show, click the "Watch videos>" link in the left-hand menu a few times - often more videos will appear.||5th May|
|Free Digital Money||100 µBTC||Often no videos available to watch. Can also earn higher amounts for installing Android or iOS apps - from 500 to 4,500 µBTC - but there aren't many of these available. Also earn by completing surveys, but it puts everything in a tiny frame so it is very hard to use - frustrating.
Minimum payout threshold 1000 µBTC

NSFW = Not Safe For Work. Some sites (e.g. CoinVisitor) allow you to opt into seeing sites that are, basically, pornography. Your choice!
If you click one of the links above marked with a * it might earn us a miniscule amount of bitcoin, at no cost to you. This helps cover some of the cost of running this website. If you prefer not to do this, then there are links at the bottom of the page that don't earn us anything.
