How to Get Free Bitcoins

If you landed on this page, it’s probably because you were searching for free bitcoins. The first thing you should know is that most offers of so-called free bitcoin are scams. Don’t get scammed. As the adage says, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

An unbreakable rule is to never send bitcoins or any other crypto to someone or some entity claiming they’ll send you more back – It. Is. A. Scam.

Why would someone give you free bitcoins?

That warning having been said, on this page, we list a couple of products and services that do offer “free” bitcoins or sats. I use parentheses because nothing is free in this world, particularly in the crypto industry. While you will be able to get some bitcoins without having to use your dollars to acquire them, the product or service giving them to you is getting something back: your attention or your data and the hope that you’ll purchase their service/product in the future.

By the way, this site is geared towards Canadians, and the services and products will work for you if you live in Canada. Some will also work for people from anywhere in the world.

Bitcoin faucets – another warning

Before we dive in, just another word of caution. In the early days of Bitcoin, there were bitcoin faucets – you would visit the webpage of the bitcoin faucet, enter your BTC address, and the faucet would send a very small random amount of bitcoins for free. You could repeat the process the next day. While the concept of faucets is still around, bitcoin faucets do not really exist anymore. Be very wary if you run into a so-called bitcoin faucet. It might be a phishing attempt to steal your crypto.

Get free bitcoins with Shakepay

We’ve talked about #shakingsats from Shakepay in our Shakepay review. Shakepay is a popular mobile and web app that allows you deposit Canadian dollars to buy bitcoins or Ethereum.

Shaking Stats is a fun concept. You sign up for Shakepay using a referral link like this one. You download their app on Android or iOS. Every singly day, you hop into the app and shake your phone. Yes, just shake your phone. Shakepay will give you, at the time of writing, 1000 sats (0.00001000 BTC). The next day, open the app, shake your phone and you’ll get 1160 sats this time. And so on.

As long as you keep your daily streak, the amount of daily free sats will increase until you reach day 120 and get the maximum 6250 sats. Keep shaking beyond day 120, and you’ll keep getting 6250 sats per day.

Please note that Shakepay can change, or cancel, the rewards given for shaking sats at any time.

Get free bitcoins with Fold

Fold is a web and mobile app that allows you to buy gift cards of popular stores using fiat or bitcoins. Every time you buy a gift card, you get sats back. You can learn more in our Fold review.

In addition to being a bitcoin-back rewards program, Fold also lets you “spin the wheel” once a day which gives you the chance of winning prizes ranging from 100 free sats  or 0.25% bonus on your gift card purchase rewards, all the way to 10,000 free sats or even 1 million free sats. You only need to open the app daily and spin the wheel that appears at the top of the app screen.

Fold also gives you 1000 free sats every time you spin the wheel seven (7) days in a row.


As you can tell, these free sats won’t make you rich (now), but they are easy ways to accumulate bitcoins. Looking for more free offers? Greedy you, I’ll update this page as soon as I find more legit free bitcoin offers.
