Site Review: Bitcoin Faucet (5 updates)

Update 5, 10/04/2013: This site has been closed. No more free Bitcoins. Move on.

Update 2, 04/03/2013: This site is not giving me any bitcoins lately, because it thinks I'm using a proxy or blocking ads, which is not true. If they don't fix their bad detection system soon I'll remove it from the list of websites that give free bitcoins.

Update 3, 05/03/2013: It's working correctly again.

Update 4, 10/03/2013: I've had the same problem as in Update 2 for two days. Three days more and I'll remove it from the list!

What is this? Another website with a faucet spitting free bitcoins instead of water? That's correct! Who would have known, having such a weird name as "Bitcoin Faucet"?... Meh, forget the unoriginal name. You are going to visit the site that gives the biggest amount of free bitcoins of the world. Let's see what it looks like!:

How It Works:

  • Bitcoin Faucet gives you free bitcoins after you wait for two minutes, input your Bitcoin address and solve a verbal captcha.
  • You'll receive up to 1200µ฿ every time you do this.
  • You can do this twice a day, or once every 12 hours.
  • Your receive the payments on your digital wallet within one hour (usually in less than 30 minutes) after you send your address and the solved captcha. Update 1, 01/03/2013: Now you have to earn through the faucet at least 0.01฿ to receive a payout.
  • Easy and profitable, isn't it?

The countdown is long... End already!

Copy address, solve captcha, click on Send!

Best Strategy:

  • Get a Timer App on your phone and bookmark on your mobile phone's browser (or any other).
  • Create a new Bitcoin address only to receive bitcoins from Bitcoin Faucet. This way you can assure yourself that they are actually paying you.
  • Visit the site and wait two minutes. You can't change your browser tab, or the countdown will pause. You can use other programs while you wait though. After 60 seconds you'll be allowed to input your Bitcoin address and solve the captcha. When the countdown reaches zero click on the "Send" button. Not before. You'll be sent to a new webpage where it will say how many bitcoins you earned.
  • Set your timer to 12 hours. When the countdown reaches zero, repeat the previous step.

More than 872µ฿ for waiting a couple of minutes is quite good!

These are the bitcoin quantities you can expect

Site Review:

  • Expected profit: 5/5. Up to 2500µ฿ per day. By far the website that gives the most bitcoins for the least amount of work.
  • Convenience: 4/5. Two minutes of countdown is too long, but the reward deserves your wait. It used to be 60 seconds, but I guess its webmaster considers people will be more likely to click on his ads if they have to wait longer without the possibility of changing tabs on the browser.
  • Payment speed: 0/5. It usually takes less than 30 minutes to receive your coins, and never more than one hour. Update 1, 01/03/2013: Now you have to earn through the faucet at least 0.01฿ to receive a payout.
  • Risk: 0/5. One divided by infinite. It's a bitcoin faucet, man! It gives you bitcoins for free.
  • Final Score: 9,5/10 7,5/10. The best site you can visit for free bitcoins in the universe is called Bitcoin Faucet. What else is there to say? Just goUpdate 1, 01/03/2013: Two points less for needing 0.01฿ to receive a payout. The wait hurts. :-(
