If you want to start stacking satoshis or test out using digital assets without having to spend any money, there are several options available for you to do so in 2020. This guide will present some of them before reviewing a few bitcoin faucets that are still operational today.

One of the best ways to get coins is to earn them from something that you already do. So if you have a website, blog or even just a large following of friends online, you can capitalize on that by joining a referral program that pays in crypto. offers such a program for Bitcoin Games, a provably fair online casino where users can play popular games using BTC and BCH. It requires no registration and lets you earn up to 25% of the house edge on all bets made by people you direct to the platform, with no top limit on how much you can earn. To join this program all you have to do is go to the BCH referral page or the BTC referral page, and your account will already be automatically set up. There you can find your unique referral link and banners in many shapes and sizes to share. The same page can also be used to track your earnings and referral statistics.

Another referral program from the company is offered by the privacy-focused peer to peer exchange It enables you to share your referral link with anyone you think might be interested in trading on the marketplace and earn BCH for every trade they make. Once you have an account on the platform, just visit the referral page to get a unique referral link that you can share with your friends. This link will take them to a signup page, and when they create an account they will be added to your list of referred users. You will earn 20% of fees incurred by their trades throughout the lifetime of their account.

Speaking of Local, the platform recently added a dedicated portal for buying and selling items in exchange for bitcoin cash. This Marketplace is a Craigslist-like venue for listing goods and services that allows anyone to earn BCH directly. So if you have an old smartphone or anything else you don’t use anymore you can sell it secondhand and turn it into free coins.

Other Ways to Earn

An additional way to sell your services for BCH is to become a bitcoin bounty hunter if you have the skills to spot software bugs or track down hackers. The Bitcoin Bounty Hunter service from allows people to anonymously crowdsource payments for completing tasks and get paid in bitcoin cash, with more than $280,000 in bounties currently available on the platform.

Another way to get some free tokens is giveaways. Many in the crypto community are committed to spreading adoption and if you follow influencers on Twitter, Reddit, Youtube and other community forums you’ll sometimes find someone who will be willing to send you some satoshis just to get you started. For example, about four moths ago Executive Chairman Roger Ver announced on Facebook he was giving away a total of $5,000 worth of BCH to his friends and anyone on the social network that posted a bitcoin cash address in response to the message.

Before trying this, take note that there are a lot of scammers in the field impersonating influencers, so you have to watch out for red flags and never send William Shatner or Elon Musk any coins if they promise to send you back 100x more.

Crypto communities also like to reward active members with free tokens from time to time. In the BCH ecosystem we can see this with the Lead SLP token which you can earn in a number of ways such as helping new users learn about bitcoin cash by hosting meetups, introducing BCH to businesses that will adopt it for payments and more.

Tipping is also popular in some crypto communities and allows people to be rewarded for their participation with free coins. In January 2020 it was reported that in just one week close to $6,000 in BCH was tipped to authors on, the blogging website that lets readers boost content creators with bitcoin cash upvotes.

Airdrops are a way for projects to introduce a new token that’s just been added to a trading platform by handing some out to users for free. To find these you need to follow the online conversation around projects you like in community forums and social media, where you’re sure to come across new airdrops from time to time. And sometimes exchanges also offer less direct ways to get new coins they list such as Coinbase Earn. This is a service meant to incentivize people to learn more about new cryptos by awarding tokens for completing tasks such as watching videos and taking quizzes on the asset-related content. Once all these tokens become liquid you can exchange them for your preferred crypto such as BCH or BTC.
