Site Review: BitVisitor (1 update)

There are several websites that will send bitcoins your away for visiting other websites. One of the best known is BitVisitor:

How It Works:

  • BitVisitor gives you free bitcoins after you input your Bitcoin address, solve a verbal captcha, check out a website during 5 minutes and click a green "Next" button.
  • You'll receive 80µ฿ every time you do this.
  • When the countdown of 5 minutes ends, you may enter a new verbal captcha and check out a new website as long as BitVisitor allows you. If there are no more websites for you to check out, it will tell you to try again later.
  • Your payments are almost instantaneous. Once you've clicked on the green "Next" button after the countdown, you'll receive your bitcoins usually one minute later. Sometimes your payments are aggregated, so you may check out three websites and get nothing, and then all of a sudden 240µ฿ after the fourth. Update 1, 07/03/2013: They have been sending their payments once each 24 hours for several days in a row, so they must have changed the way they process them.

After writing your Bitcoin address on the main page, solve a captcha, press Visit, wait for the countdown to end and lastly press on Next!

Best Strategy:

  • Create a new Bitcoin address only to receive bitcoins from BitVisitor. This way you can assure yourself that they are actually paying you.
  • Bookmark the site and have your Bitcoin address easily accesible.
  • When you get up, visit the site, paste your Bitcoin address, solve the captcha and start browsing the websites it shows you. Since there's no possibility to know whether there are new websites for you to check out, do this several times during the day. I personally do it when I get up, after lunch and right before going to sleep.
  • Remember you must press on the green Next button to receive your bitcoins; if you wait for the countdown to end but don't do this you'll receive nothing.
  • Reload the captcha if it has difficult to read letters, such as capital "i" or non-capital "L".
  • You don't really have to browse the websites. You could have them on one tab of your browser while you wait for the countdown to end doing other things on other tabs. However, some sites contain good information, so don't dismiss them automatically.

You'll receive 80µ฿ for each website. On some occassions your earnings may be aggregated

Site Review:

  • Expected profit: 5/5. I've managed to earn up to 1600µ฿ on a single day. However, on other ocassions I only got around 600µ฿. I guess it depends on how much advertisers are paying. Still, it's a big sum.
  • Convenience: 2/5. Solving captchas and waiting for the countdown to end in case the websites you get have little content or contain canned boredom is tiresome. The main website in general is pretty slow as well.
  • Payment speed: 5/5 2/5. One minute after you click the green button you'll have 80µ฿ more. Update 1, 07/03/2013: They have been sending their payments once each 24 hours for several days in a row, so they must have changed the way they process them. Still, I won't change their overall score because this website is the most stable of all the free bitcoins sites I've reviewed.
  • Risk: 0/5. None. You get free bitcoins for checking out websites.
  • Final Score: 8/10. BitVisitor gives you a decent amount of free bitcoins for visiting some websites. The countdown time is a bit too much for most of the sites it advertises, but still, you can't get a potentially higher quantity of your favourite cryptocurrency for free anywhere else.

  1. Never got anything after hitting NEXT

    1. It seems they are sending the payments in bulk now, to save in transaction fees. You'll receive your payment in the next 24 hours. I'll add this information to the review.

  2. I started doing this Saturday evening and haven't received anything. Of course, Saturday I wasn't doing it right but I've been doing it right since Sunday evening. Still nothing. What's going on?

  3. do we have to run the wallet 24 hours online to receive

  4. I've been using the site for the last 2 days and every time I press next or maybe every once in two clicks, the bitcoins I get halves. And I'm almost sure at this rate I'll never reach 60 uBtc which is the payment threshold. I'd suggest a revisit to the author.

    1. I take it back it exceeds 60 uBTC and it gives payouts. Maybe not hourly but I got it in 24 hours max even with the extra 7 uBTC. So I would advise to use it as well.
