A few projects giving you free crypto money (sometimes just because you are a Steemian!)

in cryptocurrency •  9 months ago

I don't normally give 'crypto advise' or share referral links on Airdrops, because, well, many people are doing that, especially on Steemit, and I'm never the first to share the big news.

But, more and more I start to feel more 'on top' of info than I give myself credit for. If I compare myself to one group of people I might not be a frontrunner, but to another group of people I am.

I've recently acquired a few tokens for free and you might not have heard about these projects yet, so maybe I can help you. The most important projects I get some tokens from at this moment are:

  • Byteball, gives out free bytes based on your Steemit Reputation score, I got 80$ from this project
  • Steemhunt, airdropping HUNT based on your Steem Power, but also gives a share if you delegate and/or upvote hunts
  • Mannabase, a Universal Basic Income project, giving me manna coins weekly
  • PREsearch, a 'search engine on the blockchain', giving me tokens just for searching through their website

I explain the 'how to receive' process of each of these projects below.

BYTEBALL Airdrop


Byteball decided to expand it's projects' reach by creating an airdrop specifically for Steemians! Isn't it cool to receive special treatment just because you're active here? This airdrop got me 80$ (40$ free to spend NOW and 40$ to spend in a year) in my wallet. I can immediately convert it to BTC and trade or spend it any way I want, and since this is quite a big amount of money I'd love more Steemians to enjoy it.

If you join this airdrop you will get:

  • Reputation 30 or above: $10reward
  • Reputation 40 or above: $20 reward
  • Reputation 50 or above: $40 reward
  • Reputation 60 or above: $80 reward
  • Reputation 70 or above: $160 reward

To receive the airdrop follow these steps:

  • Go to https://byteball.org/
  • Click download wallet
  • Open the app after downloading and go to chat
  • Click on Bot Store and search the list for Steem attestation bot
  • Click on steem attestation bot and Open Chat
  • The bot will send you a message
  • Click on the blue dot by the left and click on Insert my address and click the send button
  • The bot will give you a steemconnect link, use the link to connect with the bot
  • After connecting the bot will ask if you want the account to be public or private, click on public
  • It will give you a link for attestation fee 'Payment request xxx bytes'. Since you don't have anything in your wallet yet:
  • Give me your wallet address (in the comments or on Discord), and I'll send you the fee that you have to pay
  • Once you've received these bytes from me you can click the 'Payment request' link in the Bot Chat and get your tokens automatically send to your wallet.

Since I am paying for your fee I will get a Byteball referral bonus, so you don't have to send me back the fee I paid for you :-)

Do with the money whatever you want! Convert to BTC and wait for the price to rise, or buy STEEM and power up, or... spend as needed. Buying @steemmonsters is a cool thing to do too ;-)

STEEMHUNT Airdrop and bounties


Another token you can receive for free because you're already involved in STEEM is the HUNT token. Now, you don't have to do anything to receive them, since you will get them airdropped 1:1 based on how much Steem Power you have. But you can collect a bit more if you 1) delegate some Steem Power to the @steemhunt account (and no, delegated SP doesn't lose you HUNT coins during the airdrop!) and/or 2) by upvoting hunts through the website steemhunt.com.

Steemhunt is a platform on the Steem Blockchain that rewards people for sharing cool (product) 'hunts'. It's extremely good looking and works very well. I really love gadgets and am often on Kickstarter just browsing through new projects, so going to steemhunt.com and upvoting a few cool finds is plain fun to me. I often do it at the end of the day if I still have some Voting Power left. I gathered around 2500 HUNT tokens by delegating 200SP and upvoting from time to time.

Of course you can start sharing hunts yourself too :-)

Mannabase


I found out about Mannabase last summer and read the whitepaper while in the train to London. They promote 'Universal Basic Income' and give everyone free Manna coins every week, thus providing the basic income. Universal is a huge goal to get to, but if we all register and refer at least a few people the project might come closer to it's goal.

Now, the idea that these tokens will give people in developed countries a true 'basic income' (with which you can do grocery shopping and/or pay rent) is in my view not realistic. The project is very much focused on getting underdeveloped countries an income or at least supplement to their income. Why it's still worth is to join Mannabase even if you're living in a 'rich' country is because 1) you help grow the user base and therefore add to the chance of it to succeed als by referring and 2) basically they want you to have some coins you can donate to countries or groups of people who need it.

In the whitepaper they describe the possibility to donate money to a very specific group and/or region, for example 'to people in the Philippines after a flood', or 'to women in Ghana' because you want to support women in Ghana get some financial freedom.

After you subscribed and start receiving a weekly Manna payment, you can refer your own link (here is mine) to grow your payment, an upgrade will last for one year.

PRESEARCH


The last project I'll share today is the presearch project. Presearch wants to build a search engine on the blockchain which might be very interesting if we think about the dangers and negative side effects centralized search engines have showed to bring us so far.

For every search you do you receive a (subtle but nicely animated) 0.25 PRE token in your presearch wallet. To prevent abuse they limit the amount of tokens you can collect a day to 8, and at 0.11 currently that's 0.88$ a day. But prices were double only a few weeks ago and I believe the project will gain traction and I simply want to support a cool project like this.

Presearch, too, has a referral program and since I'm having fun with searching through their website I'd love to see more people find out about it. You can subscribe through my link and receive 25 tokens. I will get 25 tokens as well once you have earned 100 tokens yourselves through the website within 60 days. So subscribe and set presearch as your home page (which is what I did) and you'll get used to it soon enough! And earn some money by doing something you already did before for free anyway :-)


Since this post is an experiment I'd love some feedback. Did you already hear about these projects? Did you hear about them from me for the first time? Would you like me to do more of these posts in the future? If yes, is this the right format or could I do something more/less/different?

Yeah, I just did the byteball thing, and Initiative Q. My first try at these things, LOL! I still do not quite understand much about these things.

·

I recently saw someone calling airdrops 'the oldest sales trick in the book', namely: handing out samples. Samples and airdrops are both meant to give you a taste of the product in the hope you'll buy/use more. Well, that's it :D You can always ask me if you don't understand by the way, find me on Discord (soyrosa#1544) or just drop a comment here, I'm a patient explainer :D

And YAY for doing the first two!

·
·

Okay, later today, I shall sign up for the rest using the links you provided... and learn through the process. Thanks for your offer to help me understand these stuff. It intimidates me, and only because I have not taken the time to learn, and use my busy work and social life as a reason. I said that like other things, I will just learn about it "naturally" and by osmosis... but now find myself a little behind. LOL!

·
·
·

Well, I learn by doing always! And now I find myself making quick decisions on projects - are they worth my time or not? If yes I apply, if no I ignore. And yes, you know, in crypto you can do many tasks and jobs, but time is the most limited thing we have, so I understand :-) The projects I refer above are quite easy to do! So a good way to start :D

Hola @soyrosa, your post got me to actually do this!
Well, I already have a mannabase account since some time back.
but I had heard something about this byteball thing, and now I have done it.
If you would be so kind as to send me enough for the fee, I would really appreciate it. I think my address is this ERBZGW6UU7THNKTVLRBDYQ2CKIYDYVDG

Does that sound right?
It doesn't look anything like the address someone else posted below.
I did the whole thing following your instructions, and it seemed to go well.
the bot said this in reply to my clicking insert my address
Thanks, going to attest your BB address: ERBZGW6UU7THNKTVLRBDYQ2CKIYDYVDG.

So I suppose that is it.

Haha, I thought I was coming along in the crypto world, but a few months slacking off for crypto depression and I am clueless again.

·

Heeey @spaingaroo! That's amazing! I'm so glad you're signing up right now :D Glad you've found Mannabase already!

I've sent you the bytes for your attestation to the address you shared with me, the address looks fine :D

And YES, crypto can be SO confusing, I'm there with you! <3 Good luck and let me know if you have questions :D

·
·

yes, I cried everyday for the first two months, but that was ages ago. I see that I have the balance to pay now, just rereading your instructions once more :)

·
·

Do I need to do your final step? It seems to say it has sent both rewards.

Did you get yours?

·
·
·

YES I got mine! :D At 12:42 so also the time is right :-) Awesome, seems like you have some money to spend! Congratz :D

Oh, and don't cry please, just celebrate you've found and entered the crypto world, LOL!

·
·
·
·

I think I will hodl, now I have gotten this far.

Thanks so much and well done you
I need to look at those other two again

·
·
·
·
·

Yes, do with it what you want! They lock up 50% anyway, so you could also spend the other 50% :D

Well done yourself! Good luck on the others too <3 I believe we're frontrunners in crypto just by being 'in it', so enjoy that advantage :-)

·

ooh, I have 300 manna too

I hadn't looked for a while

·
·
·
·
·
·

did the presearch one too, so if I can get some earnings you can get another referral fee
I think I bought some PRE on an exchange, but I am not sure they are the same things.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Awesome! :D Yes, the coin you bought should be the same as the one you're earning through the website :D Except the website doesn't let you cash them out - yet - should happen soon though!

Wow, i have never heard all of them. Might get them try now, they're free. Thank you for all the info. Blessings!

·

Awesome! Glad I was able to update you on some cool projects :D If you need any help please let me know! For byteball you need someone to pay your fee, I'd gladly do that if you put your wallet address here :D Good luck!

Love this. Looking forward to using Manna and Presearch :)

·

That's super cool @oldskooliskool! Glad you found out about those projects through the blog :-)

Hi hun! I have just done the byteball airdrop thingy lol here is my address if you wouldn't mind doing the fee that would be awesome, thank you!
5CTK5DCMU4Z6XDV2KNWWGRHGN7EM36RU
100% upvote on the way for you too! xx :D

·

Awesome! I've sent you the fee @beautifulbullies! You should be able to pay it now and receive your bytes! :D

·
·

thank you so much, and thank you for the info too! :D quick question though... how do I convert it to btc? is there a certain exchange?

·
·
·

In the same place you add the Steem attestation bot you can find a BTC exchange bot! :D

·
·
·
·

Darn, It isn't working for me :/ I wanted to convert it to steem and power up

·
·
·
·
·

But you have received the bytes? You can use the Bot Shop to find the bytes/BTC exchange and send that to an exchange and convert to steem :D

·
·
·
·
·
·

yes, thank you! :D

Wow thanks dear, very useful. I will definitely check some of them, I already have the byteball wallet ;)

·

Awesome! I hope you'll have fun with the other ones as well :D

Kijk daar heb ik nou wat aan, STEEMHUNT was bekend en byteball wel gezien nog niet gedaan. Maar fijn dat je het zo op een rijtje hebt gezet ThAnx en tot ziens😉 hier of in Rotterdam

·

Byteball is het meer dan waard! Met jouw REP krijg je 20$ nu en 20$ wordt opgeslagen in je wallet en mag je over een jaar uitcashen (als het hopelijk meer waard is geworden :D) - Let me know! Als je je wallet address hier plakt zorg ik dat je de fee ontvangt die je moet betalen.

Succes! :D En inderdaad, tot hier of in Rotterdam! :')

I didn't know Presearch - sounds really interesting, I will try it out! Are the search results the same as Google?

·

Yes! They are building the blockchain search engine, so for now you will just search on Google or Duck Duck Go or whatever you like, just 'through' their interface. This way I suspect they collect the data on which they will build their own engine :-)

·
·

I think that's the first time that I get paid for some search engine collecting my data :D
I do most of my searches in a privacy browser, but for my Steemit searches I will use Presearch now, I just registered

·
·
·

Awesome! :D Hope you'll like using it. Really curious to see how this project will develop but the thinking behind it sounds smart :-)

·
·
·
·

It sure does! Using it is really convenient since it redirects to google - awesome!

Hello, can you send me the fee please? My address: WK7XHLVGBN2NPV362XS4FZM4GLZWSD6J

·

Absolutely @mitchconnor! I've just sent it to you :D

Upvoted from the whaleshares curation show

Pretty interesting stuff, I'll have to look into it! Thanks for sharing

·

Let me know if you need help @artwithflo! I can send you the fee you need to complete the byteball airdrop :-) Just put your wallet address here :-)

·
·

Thanks so much! Here's my address: SSUV4YEM7WHT7H3R65J3KKELLXXTJHRR

·
·
·

Sent! You just have to go to chat and find the message with the link 'payment request xxxxxx', click that link and send :-) Enjoy!

Oh thanks! I just joined presearch and I am loving it already!

·

YAY, I'm happy to hear! For me it's fun to use, I love to push 'enter' and see a coin fly up on the screen lol :D

Great article! I had completely forgotten about mannabase, which I have been signed up to for a while. :)

·

Wh00p! Glad I could remind you, go check out what they've paid you thus far :D

·
·

So far they've paid me 19.5 manna.. :)

·
·
·

:D I see it as a fun way to promote basic income and have a low-cost way to help others in need!

·
·
·
·

That's a good way to look at it :) Do you use steembasicincome?

Wow, this is cool. I didn't even know such things existed. I'm going to check them out.

I'm contstatnly amazed by crypto and the changing monetary landscape. We seem to be living on the cusp of a great wave of change in financial use and currency. It's pretty fascinating to see where it goes.

And yes, share more of these. Really interesting.

·

Yes, the landscape is changing quite fast indeed! I feel like we landed here at the right time :D I'll keep sharing more!

Mannabase is ok, but it is really slow. It is about 1 cent per week.
The Presearch I didn't try but they require too much personal data.
The Byteball is really new to me, I am already verified there so I am waiting to see what will happened with that one.

I have already take the Byteball reward and I have heard about the mannabase but not in details. I just installed presearch and I'll see how it goes and I'll take a look to the others too.
I think it's a useful post, I would like to see more like that in the future and the format looks fine to me.
Thanks!

·

Thanks a lot for your feedback @fotostef! :D I might start doing them once I've found a few worthy projects. Because my followers are more in the creative spheres they might follow less 'crypto' related bloggers. Maybe I can be the bridge between the two :D

I hope you'll enjoy presearch!

Thanks for sharing the information!

what you post is very useful for me and my silent development. you are so detailed discuss it. byteball is also very fun to follow. thank you for sharing a nutritious post for my knowledge

I can see myself going down this same path. Thank you for sharing this. It’s a wake up call for me.
