Since our last publishing of this guide, perhaps the most fun way to earn free bitcoins, Bitcoin Flapper, has gone by the wayside. The company which operated it no longer do, and appears to only operate iPhone apps with various titles that don’t seem to pay out in bitcoins. Other options in the Google Play Store have arisen to fill the void. Chief among them is the Blockchain Game. You sign up with a two-step sign-up process which involves giving over your e-mail address and then your Bitcoin address.
The game pays out once per week. It’s important to note that like most free games, the Blockchain Game has a lot of advertisements. This is how they are able to afford to pay others. In one sense, Bitcoin faucets and free Bitcoin games could be seen as a method of advertising profit sharing.
Playing the Blockchain game is fun, challenging, and mildly addictive. The frequent interruptions by advertising are, of course, less than ideal, but a necessary evil. Gameplay involves getting to the top level, which has the highest reward. One has to assume that this is based on skill and that the maximum reward is simply the most the company behind it, free Bitcoin veterans Bitcoin Aliens, is willing to pay out for one game.
