The idea behind Bitcoin faucets is to give people who are interested in Bitcoin a taste of what it is like to hold some in a wallet. It is more or less like giving a person who has never dealt with money before their first allowance. This is in fact what our parents did with us when we were children: they gave us a certain amount of money, and taught us what to do with it.
Since bitcoin is the first digital currency, and it works a bit differently than the money we are used to, it is very helpful to get some of it for free and go out into the world (or the internet), exploring how to use it. There are loads of Bitcoin faucets out there offering to do just this. So in case you were feeling a little bit overwhelmed with them all, we’ve done the leg work for you.
The amount that can be claimed from Bitcoin faucets depends on the website. They can offer anything from 10 Satoshi (0.0000001BTC) up to 10,000 Satoshi (0.0001BTC), and even more in some cases. You can claim Bitcoin from a faucet as frequently as once every minute 1, up to once every few hours.
Before you can start claiming Bitcoin, you will ned to create a FaucetHub account to store all the Bitcoin you will be receiving. FacuetHub allows you to receive and store Bitcoin from loads of faucets until you are ready to withdraw it to your personal Bitcoin wallet.
Here we will show you how to create a FaucetHub account, link it to your Bitcoin wallet and withdraw your BTC funds.
First, visit FaucetHub.io. Select Sign up, enter a username, password, your email address and your personal Bitcoin address you want to receive your faucet funds.
If you don’t have a Bitcoin address, you can click the “Don’t have a Bitcoin Address?” link and you will be redirected to bitcoin.org to create a wallet of your choice, or you can follow our guide to Bitcoin wallets. Ensure you have access to your private keys to this wallet stored safely, either on a piece of paper or a backup file encrypted with your own unique password.
