Making Money with Bitcoin (Part II)

Micro earnings – Faucets, PTC, Micro jobs

  • Effort – High
  • Income – Low
  • Risk – Low

One of the simplest and cheapest, but also time-consuming ways to earn Bitcoin is through micro earnings. This states that you’ll be doing small jobs and getting fractions of a coin for the time you spend.

Some of the more famous micro earnings sites are Bitcoin faucets, places which you repeatedly visit every couple of minutes in order to get a very small amount of coins. Faucets are really a subcategory of PTC websites, PTC = pay to click. PTC websites will have you click on an ad or on a button on the site in order to earn money from ad sales. In return you’ll receive a small amount of coins.

Owning a faucet

  • Effort – Medium to high
  • Income – Low to medium
  • Risk – Medium

While participating as a faucet user might not get a lot of money, owning your own faucet is another story. Today, you can create a cryptocurrency faucet easily and earn money from selling ads on your site.
