Cryptocurrency affiliate networks (often referred to as referral programs or partner programs) are one of the best ways to generate passive income. It may sound strange, but affiliate marketing is one of the oldest and probably the most popular method of earning money online.

How do crypto affiliate networks work?

Well, the principle is quite straightforward: if any given buyer likes a product on an affiliate site, he or she will be automatically redirected to the merchant’s site. If this ends up in a transaction, then the merchant pays a commission to the affiliate site. This is done with the help of special tracking URLs that keep track of all views and purchases made through the affiliate site.

This method is employed by many big companies in order to save advertising costs. The payments are usually done through cheques, PayPal, or classic bank transfers. However, as of late, these payments can also be done through crypto networks. In short, these services with an active affiliate program will basically pay you in Bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies) if you send them paying customers.

In general, it works like as follows: you have to sign up for the service’s affiliate program, the service then gives you a unique referral URL that points to their website, you post the URL on your website (online store), Facebook, or forum, or tweet. When someone clicks the referral link from your website and makes a purchase on the service’s site, that’s when you earn a commission on the purchase.

Here is a list with some of the best cryptocurrency affiliate networks:
