Site Review: CoinAd (8 updates)

Update 5, 04/03/2013: For the last 24 hours CoinAd has been inaccessible. It seems they have been hacked. I've sent @coinad a tweet to confirm this.

Update 6, 04/03/2013: Ten hours have passed and now it's back. Nobody knows what happened.

Update 7, 05/03/2013: It's broken again. I'll consider it fixed after it's up during three days in a row.

Another website very much like Daily Bitcoins is CoinAd:






How It Works:

  • CoinAd gives you free bitcoins after you input your Bitcoin address and solve a verbal captcha.
  • You'll receive 50 40 20µ฿ every time you do this. Exactly as in the Daily Bitcoins web, there's a chance that you may get a higher amount of bitcoins (a prize) in case you refresh the page on one of the times of the day when a prize is scheduled to appear. Check the Coming prizes link (there are far less prizes scheduled than on Daily Bitcoins, though). Update 4, 01/03/2013: Reward reduced to 40µ฿. Update 8, 08/03/2013: Reward reduced to 20µ฿. Reduce by half the next amounts you see on this review.
  • You can do this once per hour. This way, you can reasonably expect to get a quantity of around 800 640µ฿ per day (excluding any prizes you are awarded). Or 1200 960µ฿, if you decide not to sleep.
  • Your payments are always delayed. Once per day, all your aggregated bitcoins are sent to you, but you can't control when. Update 3, 19/02/2013: Now you can decide whether you'd like to delay your payments or not.
  • It's also possible to complete offers for bitcoins on this page if you create an account. You can get BitPoints for installing programs, completing surveys and subscribing to services. When you reach 1000 BitPoints you can then trade them off for 50m฿ (which equals 50,000µ฿!).
  • For more information read their FAQ.


Write Bitcoin address, solve captcha, press Go!


Best Strategy:

  • Get a Timer App on your phone and bookmark https://coinad.com on your mobile phone's browser (or any other).
  • Create a new Bitcoin address only to receive bitcoins from this website. This way you can assure yourself that they are actually paying you.
  • Make an account on CoinAd so as you can save your Bitcoin address and you won't need to introduce it every time you visit the page on the text field.
  • Don't try to fight for prizes. They are too difficult to get. You'll get frustrated and lose a lot of time trying to get one.
  • Visit the site, solve the verbal captcha and get your first 50 40µ฿ when you get up. Set your timer to one hour and let the countdown begin.
  • When your phone tells you the countdown has reached zero, go to the CoinAd page, solve the captcha and press on "Go". Set your timer to one hour and initiate the countdown.
  • Repeat the previous step throughout the day.
  • It's very convenient to use the same timer for both the CoinAd and Daily Bitcoins webs.


It seems they execute your payments at 00:00 GMT...


Site Review:

  • Expected profit: 5/5 4/5 2/5. You'll get about 800 640µ฿ per day. Prizes can dramatically increase this amount but are extremely difficult to get. Update 4, 01/03/2013: Reward reduced = score reduced. Update 8, 08/03/2013: Reward reduced to 20µ฿.
  • Convenience: 4/5. The captcha is made of letters, and sometimes it's pretty difficult to see them correctly. There's no button to get a different captcha, so my advice is that you refresh the page if you can't read it well enough. On the other side, being able to save your Bitcoin address is nice and saves a lot of time.
  • Payment speed: 1/5. You'll receive all the bitcoins you earn on this site once each day, but you can't control the moment at all.
  • Risk: 0/5. None. It's a website that gives you bitcoins for free.
  • Final Score: 9/10 8/10 9/10 8,5/10 7,5/10. Just as on Daily Bitcoins, CoinAd is one of the best webs to get your first bitcoins for free, slowly but steadily. And almost hassle-free. Update 1, 10/02/2013: I'm taking a point off because sometimes the site doesn't work or the captcha server doesn't respond, which is very frustrating! Update 2, 17/02/2013: I'm giving the point back because it's been working well for the last days. Update 4, 01/03/2013: Half a point less for reducing the reward per hour. Update 8, 08/03/2013: Reward reduced to 20µ฿. One point less.
