How to Earn Cryptocurrencies without Buying Them or Spending a Penny

Of all the sectors that blockchain technology has revolutionized, finance has received the greatest transformation.

Every blockchain network comes with its cryptocurrency, which besides having some use cases within the particular blockchain network also acts as a medium of storing value and a medium of exchange. We all have heard of Bitcoin cryptocurrency, which is taking the world by storm as its prices skyrocket to become the most valued currency around the globe although it is a digital currency.


Besides Bitcoin, which was the first cryptocurrency to be invented, there are thousands of other cryptocurrencies commonly referred to as altcoins that are being launched into the market every day.

While one would have to pay to own any cryptocurrency, there are emerging ways through which cryptocurrency enthusiasts can now acquire cryptocurrencies without spending a penny of their hard-earned money or having to work so hard.  

Earning cryptocurrencies by watching videos

Several platforms are now offering free cryptocurrency coins to users who take their time to learn about new blockchain products by watching videos.

You just identify a project on the platform, you watch the several videos educating you about it, take a quiz, and once you pass you earn yourself some crypto tokens from that blockchain project.

Currently, two known platforms are offering cryptocurrency enthusiasts an opportunity of earning crypto through this method and these are:

  1. CoinMarketCap

CoinMareketCap is a company that specializes in providing users with cryptocurrency market data, cryptocurrency information, blockchain data, cryptocurrency news, and crypto API among other information on blockchain technology developments.

The company was founded in 2013 and its headquarters are in Delaware, DE, in the United States of America.


Its website is known for tracking the prices of the various cryptocurrencies as listed on various crypto exchanges and giving a market outlook on how the prices have fared in the past eg. 24hours, 7 days, 1 month, etc.

Most cryptocurrency enthusiasts visit their site to compare the different cryptocurrencies being traded around the world.

The company has recently added a new section called ‘Earn’ to their website under the ‘Learn’ section visitors can earn cryptocurrency tokens as they learn about the various new blockchain networks being launched.

To earn, you are required to choose a blockchain project (preferably those marked ‘live’), watch the videos provided, complete a quiz after watching the videos and earn the available tokens. However, though anyone can watch the videos, you will be required to have an account to complete the quiz.

Coinbase Global, Inc., commonly referred to as Coinbase, is an American company that operates a cryptocurrency exchange platform called Coinbase. The exchange operates remote-first meaning it does not have official physical headquarters.


It was founded in 2021 and by March 2021 was ranked the largest crypto exchange in the US by trading volume. On April 14, 2021, Coinbase became the first crypto exchange to be publicly listed in the stock exchange market after it was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange through a direct listing.

The exchange’s website has a section where users can earn cryptocurrency tokens as they learn about new upcoming blockchain technologies.
