I went to buy a Bitcoin. At £20. But I had to set up a transfer from the bank and wait for paperwork. Eventually it came. Bitcoin was now £60! Looks like I missed my boat. And I’m still missing the boat, it’s now at £92 and climbing!
Anyway, I then thought about it. If Bitcoin really is the future, then we should try and get some. Market analysts have speculated that Bitcoin could possibly capture up to a tenth of the world market! Remembering that there are only ever going to be 21 million Bitcoins in circulation, that would price a single Bitcoin between £100,000 and £1,000,000 !!! A million quid? Per Bitcoin?
So given that these darn things are rarer than hens teeth, it really is surprising to me that there are these things called Bitcoin Faucets, which are still operating!
Originally conceived as a way for miners to distribute wealth in order that more people adopt Bitcoin, these sites offer you Satoshis in exchange for you viewing a webpage full of adverts! Usually the vibe is to fill in a captcha, paste in your Bitcoin address, post the form and wait for your free money!
So since the normal bank took too long for me to buy some bitcoin at a reasonable price, I messed around with these sites to check it out? The result? My Bitcoin account now has 0.039BTC. Highly unimpressive looking, until you realise that this is actually £3.61! Just imagine, if the entire world ran on nothing but Bitcoin, then 1 BTC would equal one twenty-one millionth of the entire worlds wealth! So it’s the wild west and theres a Bitcoin Rush! Download yourself a wallet from MultiBit (https://multibit.org) and then visit these sites to get completely free Bitcoin!
