Best Cryptocurrency Deals (Get Cryptocurrency For Free)

I’ve been noticing more and ways to get various different cryptocurrencies for free. I won’t pretend to understand cryptocurrency, but I like anything and everything free. I’ll split this into two categories, category one will be completely free deals and category two will require a purchase or similar.

Contents

Completely Free Cryptocurrency

  • BAT (you can support this blog by donating BAT):
    • Coinbase $10. Watch a short video and answer questions and earn $1 per video (3 total), use the Brave browser and earn $7 BAT
  •  Dai:
    • Coinbase $20. Watch short videos and get $2 in Dai per video, complete the advanced lesson and get an additional $14
  • EOS:
    • Coinbase $10. Watch short videos and answer questions, get $2 EOS per video.
  •  XLM:
    • Coinbase $10. Coinbase is offering $10 when you learn about XLM by watching videos ($2 per video, 5 total). You can also refer friends and get another $40 in XLM.
    • Keybase. Get less than $20 XLM a month for 3 months (Requires Existing Keybase, GitHub or Hacker News Account)

Purchase Required Free Cryptocurrency

  • eToro. Deposit $50 & get a $50 bonus
  • Voyager (cryptocurrency trade platform). Get a bonus of $25 when you join and trade a minimum of $100 in cryptocurrency. This is a referral program and both parties get the $25 bonus, after signing up you’re welcome to share your link in that linked post.
  • SoFi Crypto. Invest $10 & get a $25 bonus
  • G-Coin. Spend $50+ and get one G-Coin (worth 1 gram of gold)
  • Binance. $15 bonus when you trade $100+
  • ShortHop. $25 bonus when you deposit $200

I’m sure that I’m missing some opportunities, so if you know of any then please share them in the comments below.

can you consolidate the funds into one account after all set and done? a.k.a transfer all your bitcoin into one wallet.

SoFi Crypto is not held in a personal wallet. You cannot transfer the BTC directly out. G-Coin is unknown to me. All others allow you to transfer your funds via the supplied wallet at the website.

Abra also gives you $25 worth of bitcoin if you download the app and deposit $5 or more using a referral link.

What is the best/simplest crypto platform and wallet usable in the USA beside coinbase? I just want to use use it for transactions here and there but my coinbase got shutdown years ago and I can’t open a new one? I’d prefer to purchase the bitcoins via credit card on the platform if I can! TIA

1. You cannot purchase cryptocurrencies with a cc in the U.S. That ship has sailed. Even if you somehow find a way to do so, your cc will inevitably get shut down for breaching T&C.

2. Coinbase is not designed to be a wallet. It’s a stretch to even call it an exchange (unless you mean Coinbase Pro). If you have any significant amount, I recommend buying a Trezor.

3. As far as other exchanges, I can vouch for Binance and Kraken. But no centralized exchange should be considered trustworthy/safe. You might look into local cryptocurrency meetups and trade in-person if that’s an option. Decentralized exchanges still have a ways to go but are generally considered safer, cheaper, and more streamlined (such as Bisq). Unfortunately, decentralized exchanges are low volume and I’m not sure if I’d recommend them to noobs (no offense intended).

you can with binance and with a debit card/credit on cash app. download blue wallet to send the bitcoin to for standard segwit or lightning network transactions.

You could include Binance.US in this list. https://www.doctorofcredit.com/binance-referral-program-refer-a-friend-and-you-both-get-15-when-they-trade-100-free-trades-until-11-01
(Get $15 when you do $100 in trades. It’s not directly $15 of cryptocurrency, but it’s at a cryptocurrency exchange, and you could then easily buy BTC, etc there with the $15.)

Huobi (HBUS) exchange also has a referral program, similar to Binance.US: get 25 USDT when you deposit 100 USDT or equivalent value: https://www.huobi.com/invite/inviteInfo
(But this one’s a little harder since they don’t support ACH transfers. They do support wire transfers, or you could deposit cryptocurrency.)

There’s also faucet sites such as freebitco.in where you can get a tiny amount of BTC every hour. It takes a very long time to get enough to withdraw, though they also have a dice game where you can try gambling to get more.

Also, Purse.io has a referral program: https://support.purse.io/earning/refer-a-friend-to-purse-earn-coins (both people get $5 in bitcoin when the referred person makes a purchase of $100; Purse is for making purchases at Amazon with bitcoin).

I believe Voyager is via their app and it’s IOS only (no Android)

That Keybase thing was a scam by the way https://twitter.com/malgorithms/status/1173679559390240768

Keybase got everyone’s personal information when they got tens of thousands of people to sign up for the “promotion” only to pull the promotion away from everyone. Including everyone who followed the promotion perfectly to a tee.

Only people who had a pre-existing Keybase account are satisfied.

Worse yet Keybase was never held accountable for this. It kind of reminds of how companies aren’t held accountable for shady data leaks / theft. Same thing with promotions.. where a company can just pull a promotion like that after having harvested the personal information of so many people and getting new registrations only to pull the promotion. Not good one bit. Obviously bots and hackers shouldn’t abuse it.. but that can happen in any situation..

Good people who followed the rules should not be punished. That’s just wrong. Not to mention, in the end, in this case, it means that Keybase just gets to keep more money for themselves instead of spreading the love as intended by the Stellar Foundation. It’s an abuse of trust.

That G-Coin offer is only for the first 500 applicants, and it’s been advertised on the net for over a month. Don’t expect to get anything.

William Charles, there is Abra, though i wouldnt really recommend it to anyone. i have been trying for a week or so to get my $5 deposit in and it has been non stop verification, security hold, repeat.

https://www.doctorofcredit.com/abra-app-crypto-wallet-deposit-5-get-a-25-bonus-referral-bonus/

Also, there is Metal Pay, which gives you free crpyto for sending money like Venmo. Pretty underrated app….Your previous “special $10 free signup” is dead but it looks like they now offer that as the standard referral instead of the previous $6 (or at least that is what my referral link says)

William Charles the $10 metal pay referral appears to be dead. Back down to $6, at least for my link…

eToro signup bonus & referral bonuses have started to post for those that joined Oct 9th.

Subj: You have received $50 for joining eToro

Subj: Your Refer a Friend bonus of $50 has been awarded

William Charles i have got referral bonuses posted on my etoro account few minutes back. Yet to get 50$ signup bonus though

Gadget 🕵️

I got my signup $50. Might depend on what bank you used to fund. My $50 ACH funding hit Hancock Whitney Oct 11th. Funded Oct 9th eToro, and got the e-mail that funded was approved that day.

I got two referral bonuses so far. Expecting a few more.

What about abra? Did you get a bonus or restricted. Gadget 🕵️

Gadget 🕵️

No bonus yet. However, I am funded. I had trouble finding a bank that would work. How you know if you are restricted?

I guess you are ok. It pops up with message and won’t even let me fund it.

There’s something wrong with Abra.

I was able to open eToro, etc. no problems. But with Abra, I submitted all my information. Then I was told I needed to upload a scan of my driver’s license, a selfie of myself holding my driver’s license, AND a scan of a statement from my primary bank account. I took the time to do all of this.. and then get an e-mail saying that they can’t open the account, that I’m not eligible for any promotions or bonuses, and that they can’t provide any reason why to me.

What kind of bullshit is this? This company just received enough documents to steal my identity THEN on top of it they are saying I’m NOT getting any bonus? AND on top of that they are also refusing to provide any reason why? What kind of bullshit is this?

Abra is owned by a company called Plutus Financial, Inc. I’m thinking to file a complaint with the CFPB to complain about this abuse. Anyone else in the same boat? I worry even more about someone at Abra, an employee, etc. stealing my personal identification.

My $50 funding from Wells Fargo hit on 10/09 itself and I purchased btc on same day. I suspect 500$ bonus is max including signup and referrals .

Gadget 🕵️

How cute… you are actually using the account? LOL.

I only funded, and didn’t invest. I will consider investing if I can’t move my money back out without taking a fee hit.

This has been confirmed by csr … max of 500$ bonus per person

Questions and update to the recent eToro sign-up bonus and referral bonus…

The $50 bonus from eToro posted today. It appears available to withdraw.

Is it safe to withdraw the $50? I’m still waiting for my initial $50 deposit from my bank account to post to the eToro account, apparently it takes 10 working business days.

I don’t plan on investing the $50 deposit now that I already got the sign-up bonus. Any chance of a clawback?

Also, it looks like one person used my referral link (thanks!) how long is it taking for the referral credit to post? Thanks!

My eToro welcome bonus and referrals posted today, however it is showing only $49 as “withdrawable” and the minimum to withdraw is $50. So i can’t withdraw any….

Is anyone else seeing something similar on eToro?

Also strangely, the one referral I didn’t get was my p2 referral. Maybe because we have the same physical address? Anyone else have that problem?

I’m posting here since the eToro post is now closed to comments.

I just remembered there’s a $25 fee for withdrawing USD fiat from eToro.. so I won’t be doing that.

I want to buy XLM on etoro, but cannot figure out how? Anyone else in the same boat? When I go to portfolio, all I see is $100,000.00 in virtual practice currency for trading, even though I have $150 USD in my account now for trading. hmmm I e-mailed support, but also just wondering if anyone knows how to trade? It’s way more complicated than Coinbase or Binance platforms.

I’m also confused whether we can withdraw crypto from etoro to an external wallet? eToro lists withdrawal minimums and fees.. but also in the eToro FAQ it says (maybe it’s outdated)?
“Can I withdraw my cryptocurrencies from the platform?

You are not able to move cryptocurrencies on or off the eToro platform, without converting into fiat currencies. The eToro wallet, which was released in the last quarter of 2018 and is being rolled out gradually, will enable eligible customers to store, transfer, convert, send and receive Crypto assets, subject to certain limitations specified in the applicable Terms and Conditions.”

This is by far the most confusing crypto platform I’ve ever seen! Though at least the bonuses posted. 🙂 now just trying to figure out how to trade and withdraw.
