Site Review: Free BTC PT (2 updates)

This is a site that I found by chance, since it doesn't advertise itself anywhere. And it's also the one that can potentionally give you the largest amount of bitcoins every day. I call it "Free BTC PT":

Let's clear something out first: I consider that a web gives out free bitcoins when it's a bitcoin faucet or when it asks you to do very simple tasks which require very little time to do. If the tasks require some considerable time, I won't consider the bitcoins are free anymore, since you are actually working to get them. Free BTC PT lets you choose what type of site it is: you can stay the whole day there watching videos, completing offers and solving captchas or you can visit a couple of times a day and do a couple of each every time. I personally leave the site open on a tab of my browser and sometimes check to see if there are videos to watch.

How It Works:

  • Free BTC PT gives you four different ways to earn bitcoins after registering an account: watching videos, solving captchas, completing offers or simply visiting the site every hour.
  • If you decide you want to watch videos, go to the Watching Videos section of the web. Wait until some videos appear and watch them until they are over to earn 150.01µ฿. About 20% of the videos do not give you a reward for watching them though... Update 1, 08/03/2013: Now it's 100µ฿ for about half of the videos you watch. They update the reward as Bitcoin increases its value in the market. Update 2, 04/04/2013: Now it's 25µ฿ per video.

It works with Virool, just as CoinTube, but here they actually pay you

  • If you want to solve captchas, go to Captcha Madness!. They'll give you one captcha, which could be verbal, an image or a description of a brand. Solve it to earn 1µ฿. Request a new captcha on the page that loads after you submit your solution and repeat the process. There seems to be an endless amount of captchas for you to solve, so you may do this until you get mad!

Solve the captcha...

... Request another captcha and get mad as you earn microbitcoins!

  • If you want to complete offers, go to Satoshi's Millions!. Here's where you can earn the most bitcoins for doing stuff, but I recommend you forget about these offers entirely. Most of them make you download viruses or annoying adware or make you subscribe to a service which costs you more than the value of the bitcoins you receive for doing so.

No matter how tempting they are, forget the offers

  • If you leave the website open on your browser, it will give you 10µ฿ per hour. Update 2, 04/04/2013: Now it's 5µ฿. Here you can see several of these payments on my Account Activity Log:

I haz Bitcoinz. Meow!

  • If you want to withdraw your balance, go to their Withdrawal Center. You must have made at least 2500µ฿ to be able to withdraw. Update 2, 04/04/2013: Now it's 500µ฿:

You should get the minimum to withdraw in a couple of days

Best Strategy:

  • Create a new Bitcoin address only to receive bitcoins from Free BTC PT. This way you can assure yourself that they are actually paying you.
  • Visit the site, create an account and leave it open forever. You'll earn 240 120µ฿ per day this way.
  • If there are videos to watch, do so. You'll get paid when you've watched them until the last second. Some days there are a ton of videos and others there are very few to watch. That depends on how many advertisers Virool has.
  • If you feel like solving captchas, go and do it. I personally only do this when I'm really tired; it's an easy task that you can do without thinking and that sometimes wakes you up. Solve them in two tabs at the same time so as you don't have to lose the time the pages take to load. I can solve 6 captchas per minute this way. This means I could earn up to 8640µ฿ per day this way. And end up mad in the way!
  • Don't complete offers. The harm they might cause to your computer is not worthy of the bitcoins you'll get for doing so.
  • Request a payment once a day or when you reach 2500500µ฿. It's not good to leave unclaimed rewards sitting on the databases of websites you don't control untouched for too long. You only have to give them your bitcoin address once; they'll remember it for future withdrawals.

These three days I was away from keyboard around 8 hours in total. I needed some sleep...

Site Review:

  • Expected profit: 5/5 4/5 3/5. Around 5000µ฿ per day if there are many videos to watch. Around 1000µ฿ otherwise. There's virtually no limit here though! Update 1, 08/03/2013: These numbers depend heavily on the videos that reward you for watching them. I guess they still can be achieved, but with the reduction to 100µ฿ per video it's more difficult than before. Update 2, 04/04/2013: The numbers keep going down as the price of Bitcoin goes up.
  • Convenience: 3/5. The website has a weird design, but it works very well. It also has too many ads everywhere.
  • Payment speed: 2/5. You'll receive your payment within 24 hours after you request one.
  • Risk: 0/5. It's a website that gives you free bitcoins... Or that lets you earn bitcoins by doing simple tasks.
  • Final Score: 7,5/10. Free BTC PT lets you earn a lot of bitcoins every day. More than in any other site I've stumbled upon. There's many factors that determine the amount you end up getting each day, so you should check it out and decide yourself whether it's worth your time.
