Free Cryptos With Faucets

Bitcoin faucets are a great way to obtain cryptocurrency if you don’t have the funds to invest in Bitcoin, but still want to invest in this growing asset. Who knows what Bitcoin will be worth in a couple of years, but my bet is it will be worth much.

You all may know what a faucet is by now, but if you don't; A “faucet” is a term used in the cryptocurrency world. It means a place where you can go to claim a small amount of crypto. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different faucets out there. Many of them are scams, and a bunch are real.

Currently I use 9 different faucets on a daily basis, all proven to pay on time;
  FreeBitco.inCointiply, Bonus Bitcoin, Bit Fun, Moon Bitcoin all mine bitcoins (BTC), and Moon Dogecoin, Moon Cash, Moon Dash and Moon Litecoin for a few others (their names pretty much tell you what they are mining).

With those nine faucets I currently make a bit over a dollar per day, from the basic faucet claims, and a bunch of more from the extras (BTC now at $8,198.99). It doesn't sound much, but when you ad it all up on a yearly basis it gives you a nice sum of extra cash. Most of the faucets have extra ways for you to earn more, Cointiply is one of the best in this field.

All you need to sign up for the faucet is an email address and a computer. Never give away your ID, address or any payment information to any faucet.

Verifying SSL certificates

Standard transmission on the internet is way too unsecured, simply because of the open and decentralized infrastructure in its very nature. This means that communication is an easy target for eavesdropping. Business on the Internet is growing, the need for privacy, data integrity and confidentiality becomes critical, since business transactions typically involve sensitive information as personal data and payment card details.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard cryptographic protocol and security technology used for securing communications on the Internet and support authenticating of the communicating parties, SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser.

The other day, when I briefly wrote about the problems the faucet site Cointiply have had recently, I was in such a hurry I completely forgot to mention the tool I use to check those SSL certificates.
I use a free tool called SSL-labs, provided by Qualys, to check those sites I for some reason find suspicious or that seem to have a strange problem they should not have.

Cointiply - Security problem?

Last week the bitcoin-faucet Cointiply had an issue with their certifikation. On some ISPs this problem i still showing up, since the old certificate is still cached.

However, you should have no worries pushing on and entering the site. Cointiply is still trusted and secure. Oh, and by the way, I have gotten paid lots already :)
