Thanks to faucets, no one getting involved with cryptocurrency for the first time need ever begin emptyhanded. Let’s say this is the very first day of your journey into the cryptosphere. You know that you need a wallet so you head over to Coinbase to set up your account, link to your fiat bank, and obtain your very first Bitcoin address. If you fully verified your Coinbase account, including enabling two factor authentication, then you will have already been given a Dollar’s worth of Bitcoin.
You can then head over to the Bitcoinker faucet and collect one thousand satoshis every fifteen minutes. Bitcoinker actually gives you two claim options. You can either take a straight 1000 satoshis claim or you can try your luck and collect either 200, 300, or 2500 satoshis. I personally always take the thousand. Once you have claimed, Bitcoinker sends your earnings to Faucetbox where they combine with earnings from any other faucets which use the service. Once your total earnings reach 13000 satoshis, Faucetbox sends you a payment with its next payment run. Let’s say you manage to collect from Bitcoinker three times an hour. In just over four hours you will have your first Faucetbox payment queued. It can take up to twenty-four to forty-eight hours for you to see it but you will get paid. If you just kept claiming, that first payout could be a lot larger than 13,000 satoshis.
Faucets provide small but significant earnings I use Bitcoinker as an example of a starter faucet because you can claim so frequently, but let’s say you also claimed from Bitcoin Zebra, Moon Bitcoin, and Weekend Bitcoin five times a day (these are hourly faucets). You would then also receive weekly payouts directly from those faucets in addition to your Faucetbox payout.
Depending on how frequently you visit the faucets you can easily have your first 100,000 satoshis, or 0.001 BTC in your wallet by the end of your very first week in Cryptoland. This is not even counting the Dollar’s worth of Bitcoin that Coinbase will give you just for verifying your account.
Based on today’s Bitcoin price, 0.001 BTC is 22 cents. Not even one Dollar. Not even a quarter. Because it’s worth so little, the recommendation I’m about to make as to what you should do with it may surprise you. I’m going to tell you to invest it.
No investment too small Let’s say you went to a fiat investment firm’s office and told them you wanted to open up an account. When they asked you how much you wanted to start with you showed them your twenty-two cents. What do you suppose might happen?
Besides the broker in his fancy suit trying very hard to not laugh in your face, you would be stymied by account minimums. I recently learned of a mutual fund that was supposed to be a good child investment fund. The minimum amount needed to get started was one hundred Dollars and the minimum automatic monthly deposit was twenty-five Dollars. I don’t personally know of any kid who gets that kind of allowance money. If those are the minimums for a child investment fund, then what do you suppose they are for an adult investment fund? Is it any wonder that only the rich can afford to invest?
It’s different with Bitcoin. You really can start with just twenty-two cents. And actually, if you were to exchange your Bitcoin for Dogecoins you could invest with even less, but I’m going to keep it to Bitcoin here just to make it simple.
So how would you invest twenty-two cents worth of Bitcoin? You deposit it into your Poloniex Bitcoin wallet and then lend it out to the margin traders. My previous article describes that process in greater detail. My tutorial takes you through the steps. If you want, you can even visit the faucets using your Poloniex address and leave Coinbase completely out of it.
The current daily interest rate you can get by lending out your funds on Poloniex is 0.08%. Let’s do a little math to see what that might do to your twenty-two cents by the end of the year. We’re going to assume compounding every three days and a 300 day year since a typical two day loan offer may take a few hours to fill and start earning interest. In other words, we’re going to be very conservative, accounting for a total of 65 days of time that your twenty-two cents are not being loaned out. We’re also going to assume that each time you are paid interest you lend it out as well by adding it to your main loan. Please keep in mind that current performance is not a sure indicator of future performance, but just what is happening right now.
I put together a simple spreadsheet to show what is going on. Given the above parameters, by the end of the year, your twenty-two cents would have grown into nearly twenty-eight cents assuming the price of Bitcoin stayed the same. Your 0.001 BTC will have grown to 0.00127 BTC.
So gaining six cents in one year is hardly anything to write home about. But what if you kept visiting faucets and kept adding in twenty-two cents on average, every three days? In that case by the end of the year you would have $24.89, or 0.1131 BTC. That’s still not enough to retire on, but it’s significant, especially when you consider that all the principal came from faucet visits, in other words, BTC that was just given to you because you asked for it. It’s also only one year of faucet claiming.
Risks of investing your Bitcoin on Poloniex Going from twenty-two cents a week to a whopping $24.89 sounds like an amazing return on investment. So what are the risks? Let’s be clear on what they are. I may miss some but here are the ones I see based on my experiences.
1. Poloniex could get hacked and you could lose all your funds. Although Poloniex has a good reputation for keeping their customers’ funds secure and customers can do much to secure their own funds by choosing a unique robust password and enabling two-factor authentication, there are always hackers out there who would rather put their efforts towards stealing other people’s money rather than earning and growing their own. The reality is that in the Bitcoin world security breaches and thefts happen. As far as I know Poloniex is the only exchange currently offering margin trading. However I am guessing it’s only a matter of time before the other reputable exchanges begin offering it as well. Once other leading exchanges also offer margin trading, I would highly recommend placing funds in them and lending there as well. That way if one falls, you don’t lose everything.
2. The interest rate you get for lending could substantially decrease. I personally think this outcome is likely for two reasons. First, a 0.08 percent daily interest rate amounts to an annual interest rate of 29%. No fiat bank offers that and no legitimate Bitcoin investment offers that. The rate on Poloniex is subject to what the margin traders are willing to pay and can change at any moment without notice. When word gets out that people can get this kind of killer interest on their Bitcoins I’m sure Poloniex will be flooded with loan offers which will put downward pressure on the rate. I’m undoubtedly cutting my little financial scheme’s useful life short just by publishing this article. Second, margin trading is popular right now because the margin traders perceive it to be profitable. According to this tutorial, what margin trading does is increase the amount of funds which can be used to buy a security. This means that if the price of the security goes up the investor will profit much more than if he was only able to trade with his own funds. The flip side of margin trading is that if the investor loses, he could actually lose more money than he put in. Margin trading will be popular as long as it’s profitable for the margin traders. As long as margin trading is popular the interest rate on lending will be high. Due to the volatility of Bitcoin in general I am working on the assumption that lending interest rate is also going to be volatile. In other words, there’s no way to predict what the rate will be tomorrow. In just two weeks I’ve loaned out Bitcoin for as low as 0.03 percent and as high as 0.22 percent. As I write this, I’ve offered most of my Bitcoin at 0.0797 percent because my previous loans at higher than 0.08 percent were returned and the going rate has dropped. UPDATE: The BTC lending rate is now hovering around 0.07 percent as of June 11, 2015.
3. The price of Bitcoin could drop. Although Bitcoin is hovering at the same low it’s enjoyed for months now, there’s no particular rule that says it can’t go lower. This isn’t exactly applicable to faucet earnings which are free to begin with, but would make a huge difference if you read this article and decided to start buying Bitcoin and then lending it out. You might not be able to cash it out at the same price you paid for it.
There are risks to lending to the margin traders, but I believe those risks are much lower than the risk the margin traders themselves take on. In the fiat world, the ability to lend funds to the margin traders is reserved for the brokerages through which they invest. Poloniex has graciously opened up the lending privilege to all of its users. Poloniex takes a fifteen percent cut of all accrued lending fees. We get to keep the other 85 percent. This is another way in which the cryptosphere provides opportunities to small time investors or even outright poor people that are closed to them in the fiat world. Not only do we get to invest whatever meager funds we have, we also get to lend those funds to other investors. The same rules apply to small time investors as to the big ones: whether it’s twenty-two cents a week or $22,000 a month, only invest what you can afford to lose.
Faucets have evolved Now that we’ve covered what to do with faucet earnings so as to grow them from insignificant drips into an actual income stream, let’s talk about the original purpose of this article, which is to explore the ways in which faucets have evolved.
When I first got involved with Bitcoin I did what the Bitcoin educational websites of the day advised, which was to get an address and then visit some faucets. At the time the price of Bitcoin was $90. I never formally gathered data or anything, but many of the faucets I was visiting paid out 100 satoshis per claim, and you could claim every half hour or hour. Actually, when I first started, the faucets paid out once every twelve to twenty-four hours. You really couldn’t get much from faucets. They were kind of a novelty and a way to get something into your very first Bitcoin wallet.
As small as those initial faucet claim amounts were I do remember it making the getting into Bitcoin exciting. The faucets paid out directly and so my wallet would receive several deposits a day. When I combined that with higher paying earning sites I could actually watch my Bitcoin grow.
Since that time faucets have proliferated all over the Internet. The basis of a faucet is that it draws consistent traffic to a website. People will visit the website to collect the faucet drip. The website owner then counts all the visitors and then tells advertisers how many visitors they get in a given period of time. This traffic determines the rates the advertisers will pay to place ads on the site. The owner then profits from the advertising revenue and uses a portion of that revenue to pay out the faucet claims. This is why faucet sites are always chock full of ads. A faucet is essentially one huge and often obnoxious billboard. But it pays us something so we put up with it.
Obviously faucets are profitable to their owners, as evidenced by the sheer number of them today. Competition among faucets for that elite group of faucet visitors has grown quite fierce. This has resulted in higher payouts and more interesting faucets.
While I used to be quite happy claiming 100 satoshis from a faucet every half hour, today I will not even consider a faucet that pays any less than 200 satoshis and I’m passing by a lot of faucets which pay 500 and under because now I can find plenty of faucets paying 1000 satoshis to keep me busy. If I can claim 1000 satoshis every fifteen minutes from Bitcoinker, why would I bother with a faucet that only pays out 200 satoshis an hour? Actually, 1000 satoshi claims are becoming the norm, with many faucets frequently paying out more. For example, Bitcoin Zebra randomly dispenses 1000, 2000, or 3,000 satoshis.
I’ve started to notice a certain consolidation of faucet sites. There is a group called Bitcoin Aliens which has bought up a number of faucet and earning sites, including longstanding earning site CoinAd. Bitcoin Aliens has also launched a number of faucets, all of which they promote as being high paying. They even have a faucet app. If you frequently claim from faucets, you probably have been paid by Bitcoin Aliens.
The good news is that you get more bang for your Captcha solving prowess. This means that more than at any other time, faucet earnings actually amount to significant amounts of Bitcoin–Bitcoin which can then be invested and increased.
There’s only so much that faucets can increase the claim amount, so faucet owners are trying other strategies to compete for your visit. For example, while I was writing the first part of this article I received an email from the Free Bitcoin faucet announcing its new prize lottery. Each time you make a claim (up to once an hour) you win two free lottery tickets. Each ticket gives you a chance to win some kind of jackpot. Free Bitcoin used to be the highest paying faucet I knew about. It dispenses between 800 and 900 satoshis per hour, with small chances to win larger amounts up to between 0.8 and 0.9 BTC. But that was before I knew about the other faucets which paid at least 1000 satoshis per claim. Because of the other faucets paying higher I stopped visiting Free Bitcoin as much, especially this week. Rather than increase its lowest claim amount to compete with Bitcoin Zebra, Weekend Bitcoin, and other higher paying faucets, Free Bitcoin simply introduced a new way to win a grand prize. Each time you make a claim you get two more chances at winning that prize. So if you stick with playing Free Bitcoin, even though you’ll get less up front than you would from Bitcoin Zebra, you might still play it for the two tickets. I know I will be, especially after being told that the prize pool is likely to exceed six Bitcoin by the time winners are drawn. I wouldn’t pay for a lottery ticket (more on that later), but I’m happy to play more frequently for the free ones. And I still get the regular faucet claim.
Another interesting faucet gimmick that I really like is gradually increasing the claim amount since the last visit. Three faucets which do this are the ones I call the Moon faucets: Moon Bitcoin, Moon Dogecoin, and Moon Litecoin, all of which I visit at least once a day. There’s also one called The BTC Generator. If I visit Free Bitcoin right now, I will earn 889 satoshis. If I visit Free Bitcoin an hour from now I will earn another 889 satoshis. If I go twelve hours before I visit Free Bitcoin again I will earn 889 satoshis on my next visit. The only thing that changes the amount is if the price of Bitcoin changes in some radical way, as Free Bitcoin’s claim amount is tied to the price of Bitcoin. It’s set so that the fiat value of the highest claim amount is two hundred Dollars. In contrast, the claim amount I can get from Moon Bitcoin will keep increasing the longer I wait to make my next claim. This is true for the other Moon faucets as well. Now the Moon faucets are set up so that you’ll get the most from claims if you consistently claim every five minutes, rewarding frequent visitors more than the occasional ones. The longer you go between claims, the slower the accumulation gets. Still, the claim amount you can get will continue to accumulate for up to a month. This means that when I wake up in the morning and hit up the Moon faucets, the amount I claim is quite nice–over 2000 satoshis for Moon Bitcoin and close to 400,000 litoshi for Moon Litecoin. The Moon faucets all promote themselves as being the faucets where you choose when to claim.
Another gimmick I’ve seen faucets do is to have the faucet be a simple game or tell a simple story. There’s a faucet where your claim is vaguely connected to growing a virtual tree and another one where you vote for the cutest of two cartoon animals. Basically, there’s something else about the site to interest you in coming back besides the faucet drip.
So far, though, no matter how you slice it, claiming from faucets is still all about solving that Captcha or other type of challenge which tells the website you are indeed a human and not some automated bot. But what if a faucet could get away from requiring the Captcha challenge, or make solving the Captcha a part of a game, and still satisfy the advertisers? What if the faucet itself was a game?
The rise of faucet games It turns out that there are at least three online games which are essentially faucets, but which also integrate in-game goals which keep visitors coming back. Two of them have completely eliminated the need for visitors to solve a Captcha. The other one integrates the Captcha solving into the game. I play all three of these games and one thing I have found very interesting about them is that they are all set up to make cashing out minimal at first. In fact, to really get ahead in these games it is necessary to reinvest all one’s earnings back into the game. In other words, these faucet games have figured out a way to bring in consistent and sustained traffic with very little expense and with a built in reward structure for the truly dedicated visitors.
My Bit Mine is an economic strategy game where you as the player get to build up a mine–the kind that mines gold, metal, coal and other valuable minerals. You start off with just yourself and a cart to get into your mine. You mine by completing a Captcha challenge every five minutes. Each time you do, you get five units of gold. I found out from the exchange to Bitcoin feature that one unit of gold is worth on tenth of a satoshi, so basically, this faucet gets you to fill out a Captcha every five minutes for less than one satoshi as the reward. You do it, though, because the game is fun. Since the first upgrade you can buy, another worker, costs 600 gold, it would take you quite a lot of typing every five minutes to come up with enough gold. Fortunately the game provides an additional way to earn gold. You go to the St. Bernard Lake page and grind for gold at a pretty similar rate. To claim that gold you have to, (can you guess?) complete a Captcha challenge. But at least you’ll get to make your first upgrade in half the time. Eventually with enough upgrades it won’t be worth your while to pan for gold at St. Bernard Lake, but it’s an important feature for new players. As long as you have the St. Bernard Lake page open, the game actually harnesses your computer’s resources to mine real cryptocurrencies. The upgrades you can buy consist of various mine related things, but all of them help you to either acquire more gold each time you solve the Captcha or increase the time period between solving Captchas. When you accumulate enough excess gold you can exchange them for satoshis and cash them out. Initially, though, they all go straight back into the game. Since I started playing I’ve bought my way up to only needing to fill the Captcha every fifteen minutes. I still visit St. Bernard Lake and I also make a claim from the Bitcoinker faucet each time, since its interval is also fifteen minutes. If I stop “mining” by completing the Catpcha, then my accumulation of gold merely pauses until I return to the game. I’m fairly sporadic about it–leaving the mining page open and solving the Captcha when I think about it. The game starts off slow but intensely–all that Captcha solving–but as you upgrade it gets more fun and interesting.
Chicken Coins is a very simple game where you raise chickens, they lay eggs for you, you sell the eggs, and buy more chickens. The chickens will live forever unless you don’t keep them fed in which case they die and you have to start all over. The in-game currency is called “silver” and it has a built in exchange rate (1000 silver is worth 0.001 BTC)–one silver is worth 100 satoshis. When you sell eggs, one third of the proceeds gets put into a withdrawal account, meaning you can cash them out, and two thirds get credited to you as game currency which you have to reinvest into the game. You can trade withdrawal silver for in-game silver but you can’t go the other direction.
As a new player you are given one bag of feed and one grey chicken which produces 9 eggs an hour. Each egg is worth one satoshi, or 100 eggs is worth one silver. In the beginning the game would be inordinately slow–it would take a year for your starter chicken to lay enough eggs for you to be able to buy a second one–if it weren’t for the game bonus that you can collect every twelve hours. The first few chickens you buy will all come from that bonus, so at the beginning of the game you make sure to log in every twelve hours just to collect that bonus. The game allows you to speed up the process by depositing Bitcoin and converting it to in-game silver. However I do not recommend anyone do that. One thing about faucets is that they don’t necessarily last forever. One day the whole site could be gone and you’d lose all your funds and earnings. Play the game by collecting the bonus, buying more chickens and feed and gradually getting to the point where the amount of eggs they all produce yields you a significant amount of silver. At first you only log in twice a day. Eventually you’ll have enough chickens that you’ll want to log in more often. It’s a fun little game if you can be patient in the beginning.
Then there’s Farm Satoshi. It’s the most sophisticated faucet game I know about. Other than the proliferation of ads on every page you might even forget that it is a faucet. The game has the right balance between amount of available in-game currency and being able to buy animals, feed, and water at a reasonable rate and fairly quickly yield more funds from selling produce than what you started with. You never have to complete a Captcha once you have registered. You just play the game. Between navigating from your ranch warehouse to your animals to the market to the bank, you have plenty of time to notice ads, enough to keep the advertisers happy. How much you get to cash out depends on how intelligently you play the game. That, and getting referrals.
The fact that in Farm Satoshi you need referrals to level up is one major downside in an otherwise wonderful game. I think getting rewarded for bringing in referrals is great. But I don’t like it when bringing them in is an absolute necessity. I think Farm Satoshi could incentivize bringing in referrals by paying you a certain percentage of what your referrals claim, which they already do. They could also have special (particularly lucrative) animals in the game that only open up when you’ve gotten a certain number of referrals. But to in any way tie one’s ability to play or advance in the game to gaining referrals is a major drawback and I hope they change it soon. On the bright side, even if you don’t get your initial three referrals and get stuck playing at level 6 for a long time, you can still profit quite nicely and cash out plenty of satoshis which you can then lend out on Poloniex. Not only that, Farm Satoshi is the most fun and interesting faucet out there. It’s actually fun to play, as opposed to wanting to get in, solve that Captcha and get out as quickly as possible.
UPDATE: I learned about a week ago that Farm Satoshi removed the referral requirement for leveling up. Apparently many of the players complained about it. Now you can register an account and play all you want without having to worry about getting referrals. They did make leveling up more difficult in terms of what you have to accomplish within the game than it was before (mostly, increasing your warehouse space is much more expensive), but leveling up is now completely within each player’s control as it should be. Referrals do add to players’ earnings so they are still good to get, just not necessary. If you were turned off to Farm Satoshi by the referral requirement, then know that it’s gone and you don’t have to worry about it any longer. In my mind, the dropping of the referral requirement now makes Farm Satoshi the undisputed best Bitcoin earning faucet game around.
Faucet caviats Faucets have come a long way since the early days. They can provide a steady and significant, though small, stream of Bitcoin earnings to anyone with Internet access willing to take the time to make the claims. There are a few caviats to be aware of when it comes to faucets to make sure that the experience is as positive as possible.
Believing the ads I don’t want to tell you to never pay attention to ads you see on faucet sites. After all, they are the bread and butter of those sites, and therefore, your earnings. Often the ads are for legitimate products and if you become a customer not only are you bettering your life (you actually needed or wanted the product, right?), but you are helping to support the faucet and keep it open for you and others to continue to earn from it. If you buy from an advertiser, know that you will be spending more money than you’re likely to ever earn from the faucet, so just make sure it’s a good product that you would buy anyway.
Unfortunately, many of the ads are for products that are not legitimate or particularly beneficial. If you fall for those ads, you will lose your faucet earnings and probably much more. You will see many ads for gambling sites. You have to make your own decision about gambling but just make sure that you are aware of what it is and what the risks are. I have no problem with a gambling site that clearly discloses that is what it is. The sites I really want to warn you about are those so called “investment” sites which claim to provide an astonishingly high rate of return. I mentioned before that the annual rate of return I’m currently getting by lending to margin traders on Poloniex approaches 29 percent. I’m skeptical that it will last because in my mind it’s pushing the envelope in terms of returns that are even possible. You will see ads for “investment” sites claiming to be able to do way better than Poloniex. Some of them are called Bitcoin doublers and claim that in a month or two or less, you can double the amount you put in. All of those sites are some form of Ponzi scheme and should be avoided. Never put money into them. The site will inevitably fold in the near future and you will lose your funds. These Ponzi schemes all give some vague basis for their high earnings. Some claim to mine cryptocoins with the latest technology; some claim to be very good at arbitrage trading. I’ve seen a few that claim to excel at Forex trading. Others just say they are some kind of super financial genius (or made up of a team of super financial geniuses) and just know how to pick the right investments and want to share their bounty with you. Some of the sites look shady, but others look very sophisticated and credible. Believe none of them. If you put funds into those sites, it’s only a matter of time and you will lose them when the site closes. These sites are worse than the gambling sites because they do not disclose that they are gambling sites, and as such lure people looking for legitimate opportunities into essentially gambling, because when you put money into a site like that, you are essentially placing a bet that the site will still be there when it’s time to cash out.
The bottom line is while visiting faucets you will see lots of ads for sites which claim to offer unbelievable returns. Don’t believe them and you’ll be fine.
Putting money into faucets One gimmick that some faucet sites are using is something called a multiplier. You pay a one time fee that allows you to increase the amount you claim. For example, you might pay to have the faucet dispenses multiplied by 2, 5 or 10 times. It sounds good, especially if you are a heavy faucet claimer. However, keep in mind that faucets come and go. If the faucet runs out of funds and can no longer pay out claims, then what happens to your “investment?” I believe faucets are for the most part legitimate operations and the owners have good intentions. However, it is possible that they start losing money and have to close down. That is not a big deal if you’ve been claiming from that faucet–you just can’t claim anymore. But if you’ve put funds into it and now you can’t claim, those funds are lost. My point is that anytime you buy a faucet multiplier you are assuming the faucet will be around long enough for you to make back in claims what you put in, and that is simply not a safe assumption for most faucets. They come and go. They’re great while they last. Take the amounts you can claim for free and then do something worthwhile with them, invest them in some way, such as lending to margin traders on Poloniex rather than investing in the faucet itself.
Keeping a good life balance Faucet claiming can be quite time consuming and can turn into a constant thing if you don’t watch it. There are so many faucets and many of them pay quite well compared to what faucets used to pay. Some of them are also very interesting games. It’s tempting to want to claim from all of them, or at least all the ones you know about. If you spend too much time claiming from faucets you will burn out, not to mention miss out on living life because you’re spending too much time on the computer. You can rationalize it by saying that at least you’re earning, but there comes a point where you have to let it go.
A good faucet strategy is to choose several that you consider the best, and hit those up once, twice, or three times a day. You won’t earn as much as you would if you were claiming from each one every hour, but you’ll be earning consistently, and maintaining your life balance.
It’s good to always remember that no matter how good faucet earnings are, especially compared to what they used to be, they still do not come close to minimum wage. If you have a job, you will earn more per hour doing your job than you will claiming from faucets. Claiming from faucets should never interfere with your normal work–it’s more of a break time activity, or something to do when transitioning from one computer activity to another. Interrupting your work to claim from faucets will reduce your work productivity, and that could lead to loss of earnings and opportunities further down the road–a scenario you definitely don’t want.
Faucets are a great way to get started in Bitcoin without having to invest any fiat into it. But once you have gotten started and have learned the ropes a bit, you do not need to obtain your Bitcoin exclusively from faucets. You can buy your Bitcoins outright, or you could earn them in some more lucrative way than faucets. You could give up something small, like a cup of specialty coffee, and use those funds to buy Bitcoins instead. Although in that scenario you would be paying for your Bitcoin, it might be cheaper for you in terms of time than it would for you to try to obtain it through faucets.
It’s always fun to get Bitcoin for free, so I know that in one way or another faucet claiming will be a part of my day for the foreseeable future. I just have had to learn to not overdo it, and to sometimes take a break. Ultimately, my hope is to grow my Bitcoin earnings (by whatever means I acquired them) in a more passive way. Lending to margin traders on Poloniex is one way I can recommend. Another way is to use those Bitcoin earnings to buy one or more alt coins which are currently undervalued and hold onto them until their price improves. I spend a significant portion of my faucet earnings on DNotes because I believe DNotes will be worth more in the future than they is today, not to mention I can let them earn interest by socking them away in a “Retirement” CRISP in the DNotes Vault.
Final faucet thoughts Faucets have come a long way since the early days. This means that you have lots of choices about which faucets you will frequent. You can select for the highest paying faucets or the most fun and interesting ones. Some faucets include free tickets to win a jackpot in addition to the claim amount; others are games which are both fun to play and potentially lucrative (by faucet standards). You don’t have to be a regular visitor of every faucet out there; in fact, you’ll do better by consistently visiting a handful of faucets that you consider to be the best ones. Choose them carefully. Enjoy the experience and the earnings, be wary of the ads, don’t overdo it, and take a break from time to time.
