Back in July/2017, when I was thinking about “retirement”, one of the main things I planned on doing was working on my tea store with all of what I thought would now be my “free time”.  As it turns out, my cruddy web hosting company pulled a fast one on me, and my original tea store is now but a memory.  (The current Tea Universe is a meager shadow of what it used to be.)

Unsure of what to do next, I eventually stumbled upon Beer Money Forum.  It looked like an interesting site, so I joined.  Within a week or so I was hooked on the concept of making money with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

If you’d like to follow me along on my cryptocurrency journey, this is what I would recommend you do:

1. Get a Wallet

First, you will need a cryptocurrency wallet.  I primarily use Bitcoin, so I chose Coinbase as my wallet.  You’ll then need to link your wallet to a checking account.

2. Play with Faucets

Next, you’ll need to decide if you’ve got the time to mess around with cryptocurrency faucets.  A “faucet” is basically a website that “drips” a teeny amount of cryptocurrency in return for you looking at ads, (and dealing with pop-ups, pop-unders, pop-overs, and pop-all-arounds!).  If you’re going to use faucets, then you’ll need to familiarize yourself with terms like “Satoshi”, which is a teeny-tiny fraction, (0.00000001), of a Bitcoin.

Since faucets return such a small piece of a Bitcoin, you need an intermediary “faucet wallet” to store what the faucets earn, until you have enough saved to transfer to your main wallet.

There are two main faucet wallets you should have: Faucethub and Coinpot.  Most faucets will use one of these, but not both, so I recommend you get a free account on both of them.

Now the fun begins: pick a faucet, (or open several in different browser windows), and begin to make a small, (very small), amount of money!

Given with the understanding that faucets come and go, and what is a good faucet today may be a cruddy faucet tomorrow, here are some faucet websites you may find useful.

My Favorite Faucets, (as of 12/Sept/2017):

Shibe Win – my favorite faucet, at the moment.

Earncrypto – I watch videos here to earn dogecoin.

Bonus Bitcoin – automatically sends to Coinpot.

Other Faucets I Frequently Use:


Starbits – used to be a GREAT faucet, but is less so recently.



Your Free Coin

Moon Bitcoin

Hot Coins

Daily Free Bits


Faucets I Use Less, But Folks Recommend:



Moon Dogecoin

3. Make Some Money!

Now comes the exciting part!  Using either Bitcoins we’ve ever-so-slowly accumulated via faucets, or purchased via our linked checking account, we can invest in a few of the many high yield cryptocurrency sites.


To date, (12/Sept/2017), I’ve only been able to invest in the following two sites, but as time goes on and I gain experience, (and money!), I’m hoping to invest in several more.

TelcoMiner  –  if you’re a Safari user like me, use Chrome for this site



There you have it: my three simple steps to wealth.  Come along with me on this journey, and hopefully we’ll all have big bags of money soon!



Note:  As with 99% of all websites, some of the links on this website are affiliate links.  (Gasp!)  Going through an affiliate link doesn’t cost you a penny, (or even a “Satoshi”!), but it does give a tiny commission to the affiliate, (me!).
