FAQ - Free Crypto, Faucets & Airdrops

  • What is a crypto faucet?

    A crypto faucet is a reward system that gives rewards in exchange for completing a captcha or a small task.
    Faucets usually distribute satoshi, which are fractions of Bitcoin.

  • What is a crypto airdrop?

    A Crypto Airdrop is a free giveaway. It's a common practice for new blockchain projects to distribute cryptocurrencies (also called coins or tokens) for free.

    Each airdrop will require different tasks. In return, you usually have to complete some simple social media tasks, subscribe to their newsletter, or register on their website.

    Those are called bounty airdrops.

    There are also other types of airdrops like Holder airdrops and Forked airdrops but most of the airdrops we share are bounty airdrops.

  • Are they safe?

    Most of the time, they are safe.
    However, there are also some fake airdrops or faucets around. Please be aware and follow some security measures:

    • NEVER EVER give your private keys.
    • Don’t use your usual password when you register on a website.
    • Create a new email address that you will only use for airdrops.
    • Never send your crypto to someone else in order to receive your airdrop or to get more coins.
    • Be careful when you download an app or a wallet, it can contain a virus.
    • Never click on links redirecting to wallets.
  • Why do blockchain projects give free crypto?

    Crypto airdrops are essentially used as marketing campaings, this will easily create awareness about the project.

    It is also a great way to promote a project and build a community.

    The network effect is really strong as thousands of people can share the project's social medias.

  • Do these free cryptocurrencies really have value?

    Yes! You might think these free tokens have no value because they are distributed for free.

    But the projects usually allocate only 1% of the total supply for their airdrops. The rest of the tokens are still for sale, so they have a value.

    There were even some great projects like Hydrogen who gave free cryptocurrencies worth thousands! (yes, thousands!)

    Even if this seems occasional, it happened multiple times. We wish you to be lucky and catch one of these!

  • How many time does it takes to receive my coins?

    Faucets will give you coins instantly, however, sometimes you have to reach a certain amount to be able to withdraw them.

    With Airdrops, it will vary a lot. In some (rare) cases, you will get your free crypto almost instantly.

    But most of the time, you have to wait for some weeks, or even months before receiving your cryptocurrency.

    This is because projects usually announce their airdrops before their ICO (Initial Coin Offering) starts. Doing this gives them the opportunity to grow their community and attract more customers.

    The airdrops are in most cases distributed after the ICO. You have to wait until all ICO stages end to receive your free cryptocurrency.

    Don't be surprised if your wallet is still empty after doing airdrops for one week. Patience is key.

  • Where do I sell my tokens?

    There are many places where you can sell your tokens.

    The cryptocurrencies given in faucets are around for a long time, so they are listed almost everywhere and you will be able to choose where you want to sell them.

    However, the cryptocurrencies you'll receive with airdrops mainly come from new companies, so they are usually not listed on big exchanges like Binance or Bittrex. But there's a lot of smaller exchanges you'll be able to sell your coins.

    For example, if you receive an ERC20 token, you can sell it immediately on ForkDelta.

    If you don't know where you can sell your new crypto, you can ask in the project's Telegram channel or check their Twitter if there's any announcement about it.
