Site Review: CoinTicket

CoinTicket is a bitcoin shop. Which sells... Bitcoins... That cost... Nothing. However, you need to get tickets to "buy" the bitcoins. When you visit this shop, you get a certain amount of tickets for free, but if you don't consider enough the amount you received, you can return later and try to get more... Or something like that. If all of this seems too difficult to understand, don't worry, I'll break it down for you: it's just another bitcoin faucet.

How It Works:

  • CoinTicket gives you free bitcoins after you input your Bitcoin address and solve a verbal captcha.
  • You'll receive between 10µ฿ and 20µ฿ every time you do this... Yup. You'll get rich soon at this pace.
  • You can do this once per day.
  • You receive the payments on your digital wallet in less than 24 hours.
  • The site used to have some kind of chance element that gave you more "tickets", which I guess it meant you got more bitcoins for your visit. But I've never received more than 10 tickets and I've been visiting the site for weeks, so I think this must be broken.

Introduce your bitcoin address...

... Solve the captcha...

... And wait a few hours to receive a handful of bitcoins!

Best Strategy:

  • Get a Timer App on your phone and bookmark http://cointicket.org/ on your mobile phone's browser (or any other).
  • Create a new Bitcoin address only to receive bitcoins from CoinTicket. This way you can assure yourself that they are actually paying you.
  • Visit the site, input your bitcoin address and press the "payout" button. You'll be sent to a new page with a captcha. Solve it and press the "send" button. You'll be sent to a third page confirming you'll receive your bitcoins soon.
  • Set your timer to 24 hours. When the countdown reaches zero, repeat the previous step.

I'm rich!... Not

Site Review:

  • Expected profit: 1/5. 20µ฿ at most each day? Maybe this is not worth your time...
  • Convenience: 4/5. It follows the standard formula of introducing your bitcoin address and solving a captcha.
  • Payment speed: 2/5. The coins will find their way to your digital wallet in less than a day.
  • Risk: 0/5. The risk is quite close to the amount of bitcoins this site gives out.
  • Final Score: 5/10. CoinTicket is a bitcoin faucet that in its origins might have tried to give a spin to the formula, but today, as a website, it looks bland and abandoned. It seems like it could disappear at any time, so if you just can't have enough free bitcoins, visit it every day and get a few hundreds of satoshis while it lasts.
