Looking for free cryptocurrency?
Be careful, this space is full of scams. Blogger Misha Yurchenko wrote a book with some tips on getting coins without getting scammed, it’s the best summary I’ve ever read and you can find it on my reading list.
I like two types of free crypto: airdrops and promotions/incentives. With airdrops, you get free tokens. With promotions and incentives, you get rewarded for using a service or app.
Will any of this free cryptocurrency ever be worth anything? Maybe. Click on the links below to learn more, and don’t stress too much if something doesn’t seem right for you. I’ll add more links as I find legit, easy ways to earn some “easy moolah” as my daughter says.
(Disclosure: I get free cryptocurrency when you participate in any of the opportunities below. Some of these projects I know nothing about—I participate because the airdrop requirements are easy. Some of these projects I use and believe in.)
(Note for CoinIMP: after you sign up, you have to click “BUY” on the top menu bar, then scroll down to “CLAIM.” You do not have to buy anything, this is just the way they organized their website.)
Promotions / Incentives

A Word of Caution
Never give anyone your password or private keys. Nobody should ever ask for those, nor should you ever have to give them.
Never reuse your email or passwords. Always use unique, random passwords. I created a separate email account for airdrops, I recommend you do this, too.
Write your information on a piece of paper and store it somewhere safe. Relax and enjoy the ride!
