Free cryptocurrency. Where and how can you get it?
Often blockchain projects run promotions that give away digital money. But this is not the only way: some services allow you to earn tokens by performing the simplest actions.
It is not necessary to invest your own funds to start acquaintance with the field of cryptocurrencies. There are various ways to get digital money for free. For example, as a result of viewing ads, participating in giveaways, or taking training programs.
One of the most popular ways to get cryptocurrency is to take part in an airdrop. In September last year, the Uniswap decentralized exchange released its UNI tokens and distributed some of them to users. As a result, 8 traders received from $ 250 thousand to $ 750 thousand in cryptocurrency, about 50 people took from $ 25 thousand to $ 250 thousand.
In total, about 100 thousand users won in different amounts. The base prize was 400 UNI tokens (about $ 1000 at that time and $ 10,000 at the exchange rate on February 25). This award was received by every trader who made at least 1 trade on Uniswap before September 1 of last year.
In December 2020, another decentralized exchange, 1inch, released its token and distributed it to users. The right to collect the reward was received by traders who met one of the following conditions:
- made at least one trade before September 15, 2020;
- made at least four transactions;
- made transactions for a total amount of at least $ 20.
Each client of the platform received at least $ 1,500 and some received a much larger reward. Its size depended on how long ago traders had provided liquidity to the platform. One of the users received $ 25 million, three more – from $ 3 million to $ 3.35 million. 37 traders brought 100-700 thousand coins to their wallets of $ 250 thousand to $ 1.75 million. 190 people took a reward of $ 25 thousand. – $ 250 thousand
A smaller-scale distribution of tokens was also carried out by the Binance crypto exchange. In December last year, it distributed the altcoin of its mobile wallet for storing the Trust Wallet cryptocurrency to its users for free. TWT tokens were received by all users who made at least one trade on the spot or futures platform from December 14 to December 21, 2020. Each client received 100 coins for approximately $ 15. On February 19, their cost rose to $ 88, now it is about $ 60.
Singapore-based crypto exchange BitXmi has carried out the largest distribution ever. In June last year, 1 million of its own BXMI tokens were distributed on the exchange. The distribution of prizes took place in 2 stages, each for a week. To participate, it was necessary to subscribe to the official social networks and trade on the exchange. In total, 40 winners received from 5,000 to 100,000 thousand tokens. The biggest prize went to the most active trader. At the time of the distribution, 100,000 tokens were equivalent to $ 10,000. At the moment, on February 25, 2021, the amount is $ 70,000.
Free cryptocurrency for completing tasks
However, this is not the only way to get cryptocurrency for free. For example, you can receive digital coins for maintaining a social network. Steemit blockchain blog users earn STEEM tokens, Steem Power and Steem backed dollars in a ratio of 50% to 25% and 25%. The amount depends on the number of post views, likes, and comments. Steem Power cannot be sold – it is an analog of stocks that allows you to receive passive income.
You can also receive cryptocurrency for free by watching ads. For example, the Brave browser has such a function. Often, services that pay tokens for viewing advertising content offer users not only to watch videos but also to perform some simple tasks: read letters, surf, enter captchas. Each platform has its own withdrawal limits. Usually at least 10,000 Satoshi, it will be difficult for a beginner to earn such an amount quickly.
You can also receive cryptocurrency by completing training programs. In December 2018, the American crypto exchange Coinbase launched the Earn program. Its users receive $ 1-2 in cryptocurrency for watching videos and solving tests. After completing all the tasks, you can collect a small portfolio of different tokens worth over $ 109.
