If you are reading this article, you are probably looking for ways to earn Ethereum – the second most popular cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. Ethereum has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. It is now valued at around $300 per Ether. Unlike earning Bitcoin, there are very few legitimate ways to earn Ether, since Bitcoin is more popular than Ethereum.
There are many sites that pay Ether for doing certain online tasks. In this post, we want to teach you how to freelance for Ethereum. Please note that these methods don’t guarantee Return on Investment and may not work for everyone. Also, it is not a get-rich-quick scheme.
1. Ethereum Faucets
You must have heard of stories from early adopters of Bitcoin who earned a lot of free BTC through a crypto faucet. Cryptocurrency faucets have been used since the inception of digital coins as a way to complete simple online tasks to claim free tokens. Some users have made a lot of money by taking advantage of these faucets.
Similar to Bitcoin faucets, users will receive small amounts of Ethereum as a reward for visiting the website. The user just needs to visit the Ethereum website and doesn’t have to perform any tasks. To start earning, visit the page and sign up for an account. You’ll then be asked to solve the captcha to prove you are not a robot. After solving the captcha and clicking claim, Ether will be added to your account. You can withdraw it later.
The reasons faucets pay free Ethereum tokens to users without needing them to complete tasks are numerous. They use ads on the faucet page to cover the reward expenses. The faucet will give out only a fraction of Ethereum token per visit. So, in order to earn a reasonable amount of Ethereum, you must work on several Ethereum faucets at the same time.
2. Sign up on free freelance platforms that pay with Ethereum
