It's still possible to get free Bitcoin, either through mining, tipping or airdrops.
Earn Crypto - How To Get Free Bitcoins [BTC]? 
Getting started with cryptocurrency is possible through various methods allowing you to earn free Bitcoins. There are always accessible opportunities to complete small tasks and establish a small crypto portfolio.
Tipping Bots for Free Bitcoin
The most straightforward way to earn free BTC in 2022 is by leveraging the power of tipping bots
. These bots reside across social media networks, including Twitter, Telegram and others. In addition, some bots will issue currencies that are not Bitcoin, but you can convert earnings to BTC through various exchanges and trading platforms. Popular tipping bots include SpicesBot
on Telegram, and Tipper
and TipJar Bot
on Reddit. There is also SoDogeTip
for Dogecoin, Stellar TipBot
Getting users to tip you through these bots and platforms is a different matter. On Reddit, engaging in social conversations through knowledge and insights may help you earn more rewards. On social media, it is a matter of getting people to notice you. Moreover, you can use your earnings to tip others, sharing the wealth around and potentially getting more people involved in the broader cryptocurrency industry.
While play-to-earn gaming is a popular vertical in the crypto industry today, there are many other games one can play without upfront investments. Dozens of games let users play to earn micro-rewards in Bitcoin (BTC). While casino games are an option, there are other opportunities, including trivia games (Satoshi Quiz Show), skill-based games (THNDR Games), task-based games (Alien Run) and many more.
It is essential to remember these games will not pay out big amounts of BTC. Instead, they are often generating revenue through advertisements, and a share of those rewards is distributed to players. Even so, these projects combined have distributed more than 1,000 Bitcoin to players over the past decade, making them a great way to get more people into crypto.
Mining BTC in Your Browser
Technology has evolved significantly, even in the cryptocurrency space. Crypto mining
often involves dedicated and expensive hardware, although it is possible through a web browser too. CryptoTab
is an excellent example of how anyone can mine Bitcoin through their browser. The process will tax your computer's hardware quite a bit and consume a decent amount of electricity, but it can reward Satoshis — the smallest subunit of a Bitcoin — over time.
A slightly different way of "mining" Bitcoin is using the Brave browser. It does not require taxing a computer’s energy usage, but instead requires you to click advertisements shown through browser alerts. Users earn BAT tokens for clicking these ads, and you can then exchange rewards to Bitcoin. The Brave browser is available on computers and mobile, making it an accessible way of getting involved in cryptocurrency without any friction.
Software-Based Bitcoin Mining
Even though cryptocurrency mining requires dedicated and expensive hardware, anyone can do it through free mining software too. The results may not be spectacular, but any computer is capable of mining BTC today. NiceHash has put together a solution, either through QuickMiner or the regular Miner, depending on the approach one prefers.
The software-based mining will occur through one's CPU and yield marginal rewards over time. The QuickMiner also supports NVIDIA graphics cards, which may yield slightly better results. However, there is tremendous "competition" to mine Bitcoin on the network today, and your computer will not make a big impact. Even so, it can yield small amounts of free BTC, although your computer will use more electricity than normal.
There is a dedicated platform to collect Bitcoin-related bounties – bitcoinbounties.org — which are primarily related to coding and other engineering tasks. Users can earn up to 1 BTC regularly for completing tasks, even though they may not be accessible to everyone. These bounties serve as an incentive for those who are passionate about coding and want to learn more about how Bitcoin works.
Other platforms, including Bounty0x, which will provide users with ways to contribute to the broader ecosystem and earn rewards for doing so. The Bounty0x has a wide offering of bounties, although they may not all be paid out in BTC. Keep in mind that you can convert other currencies to Bitcoin with relative ease.
Although it seems this concept has become less apparent in recent years, there is still money to be made with crypto airdrops
. New projects come to market every month, and most of them will offer airdrops in exchange for social activities to help generate a buzz for this new venture. Although the rewards are not in BTC specifically, the earnings can be converted to Bitcoin through exchanges and other trading platforms.
As airdrops do not require specific knowledge or cumbersome tasks, they are a very accessible option for those new to the crypto space. Moreover, plenty of platforms are tracking airdrops, including Airdrops.io, ICOMarks, CoinMarketCap, and others.
Perhaps the most straightforward way of earning a Bitcoin income, promoting websites dealing with Bitcoin through an affiliate program can earn you some BTC along the way. Hundreds, if not thousands, of such affiliate programs exist, although earnings will vary greatly. Although the market is slightly smaller, Bitcoin-related affiliate marketing isn't different from traditional affiliate programs. This is because Bitcoin and other crypto assets remain a niche market compared to conventional payment methods.
Becoming a successful affiliate marketer requires tremendous work and effort. Promoting exchanges
is a good option — such as Binance
, FTX, Coinbase
, etc. — and casinos or gambling platforms may be another worthwhile option. Finding a reliable and trustworthy provider is crucial, as your reputation is on the line when recruiting people to sign up and spend money through your link.
