Bitcoin faucets – what they are and why they offer free bitcoins

As mentioned earlier, bitcoin faucets are those websites that provide you Satoshis in exchange for clicks. A Satoshi is the smallest unit of bitcoin and is equal to only 100th of a millionth BTC. Some faucets may offer as low as 100 Satoshis, while a rare few may offer up to 10,000 Satoshis. Upon visiting a bitcoin faucet, you will see a captcha API on the site in which you just have to enter the characters and then click on the button to “Claim” your free bitcoins.

You might be wondering why these websites are providing free bitcoins just for clicks. Yes, they’re doing it for their benefit. There are numerous ads splattered across these bitcoin faucets.
