If you have been using digital currencies for awhile, you probably have heard about BestChange.com. It’s a website to find the best exchanger between one digital currency to another.
Did you know that BestChange.com also offers some free money? They have a separate faucet feature from their main program.
We can get free Bitcoins from them and it even has it’s own affiliate program. With this article, I will share with you, my review for the faucet not their entire monitoring program.
Hopefully it helps. Is BestChange.com the best bitcoin faucet?

Payment Method: Bitcoin (Direct to wallet)
Minimum Withdraw: 2,000 satoshi
Started Since: June 19, 2007
My Status: PAYING (May 2021)
News and Update
May 2021. The faucet reward limit has been adjusted to up to 100 satoshi from the previous 1,000 satoshi. At the same time, the minimum to withdraw has been reduced to 2,000 satoshi.
They also changed the captcha system. Currently the captcha is from hCaptcha and no alternative.
Republished the article from the original date of June 14, 2019.
BestChange.com started as Russian based website using .ru as their domain extension. They work as a monitor to any exchanger service for digital currency.
So BestChange.com is not the trader. They provides information and comparison from other companies as a third party.
Back then in 2007, not even Bitcoin was introduced yet so exchangers are mostly trading WebMoney and e-Gold. Now, transaction between Perfect Money and Bitcoin dominates the exchanger.
Now registered as BestChange.com, based on US, offers service using mainly in English rather than the original Russian. The Russian website are still using the old domain.
At this time there are over 200 active exchangers compared on BestChange.com. The highest number was almost 400.
We can see which exchanger will give the best deal, updated every 10 seconds instead of the initial every 5 minutes. They even have double exchangers features.
Not just any exchangers can join. There are some requirements like the exchanger must have operated for at least 6 months with total available reserve amount over $5,000 and many more.
Exchangers also need to have a partnership program, or affiliate program which is how BestChange.com will make some money from them.
About the Faucet
A faucet program lets anybody to get free money for doing (almost) nothing in return. Usually we need to view some ads, solve a captcha and we can get free money. Of course the amount we can get is not that much.
The faucet on BestChange.com is actually a separate program. An add-on to their main website. Accessible separately from the main account.
We can find the faucet on the left widget at the bottom. There is a widget with two tabs, LATEST NEWS and BTC FAUCET. We need to click on faucet tab.
You might be asking how can a faucet program is this simple while others need to have a whole website. Actually from other faucet program, most of the space are used to display advertisements that can support the faucet program.
The real question with faucet on BestChange.com would be how can they afford without any advertisement. Does it mean that as exchange monitor, the main program is so profitable that it can support the faucet?
Not sure when they started offering free bitcoins from faucet, I think it was before 2017 so it has been long enough to stay around. The main website has already launched since 2007, before even Bitcoin was introduced, let alone the faucet feature.
Recently, Cointiply that offers mainly a faucet program, similar to BestChange.com, has to reduce the amount of free money they share from faucet. Cointiply faucet, even with some ads is not making money for them.
So I have to say that either Best Change really do a great job with their main feature or it’s just a matter of time before they close down the feature. I hope it’s not the latter.
Everyday the faucet is used by over 20,000 users. We can see how many users from the claiming part. Not sure but the number probably has something to do with the random amount we can get.
Even if this is just an additional feature, BestChange.com is still being supportive to help any users facing a problem with their faucet account.
We can access and follow their Facebook page to ask for help. Maybe we can also use the contact form on their main website.
Like any other faucet, they started by giving bigger amount of satoshi. Following the dynamic price of bitcoin, we can get very little which in USD still worth the same.
Back then when we can get higher amount, they even let user to choose the amount to withdraw between 10,000 satoshi, 30,000 satoshi and 100,000 but with fees. That was in 2017 before Bitcoin price almost reached 20,000 USD.
They also change the timer or interval between claim. Not sure for longer or shorter.
The withdraw process was also instant, but maybe with getting more users become problematic. Now with manual, they can hold it.
There is also a warning about not to promote bestchange.com main affiliate program in an article that highlights the faucet program. This is the reason why I decided to write a review separately.
I really don’t know why, maybe they just want a quality promotion about the main website. Another reason for me is because I don’t have any experience on using their main feature yet.
Faucet – How to earn Free Bitcoins
This is a rather simple, mini program for anybody to use. But on the other hand the lack of several features requires people to use a third party program like the wallet before even using this.
So I will try to walk you through the process of using this feature until you can get paid from BestChange.com.
Step 1 – Open a Bitcoin Wallet
This is important that we need to have a working bitcoin wallet first. Working means, we can access them not an old wallet address that we don’t even remember which wallet we use.
The wallet address will be used to sign up and for Bestchange.com to send the payment to. No options to change later midways so be very careful to choose.
If you don’t have one yet, you can try using Freebitco.in as your web wallet. It is actually another faucet program where we can keep some money there and get daily interest compounded like a bank.
After finish signing up, on the member dashboard, claim the faucet there then click on green DEPOSIT button at the top. A pop up window will appear to show us a wallet address.
Set this address as payment or withdraw from bestchange.com or other program, and it will become a deposit to Freebitco.in. Make sure we copy the address completely, and do double check or we might be losing a potential income source.
Copy the wallet address and go to bestchange.com using this link.
Step 2 – Claiming from Faucet
On BestChange.com hompage, scroll down to the bottom. From the left widget at the bottom, click on BTC FAUCET tab beside LATEST NEWS tab.
Just paste the wallet address, and click on the white box to verify. Sometimes we need to solve captcha from Google but other times we can get the check mark right away.
Using a new wallet address will automatically register a new account. Then we can click on the CLAIM button.
Right after that we will get the result. The random number of satoshi we get for that claim and the status for account.
The status shows our claimed amount, number of referrals, earning from referrals, paid amount and unpaid balance. Below that there is a mini referral program, showing the unique referral link for that account or wallet address, share buttons, and some suggestion from bestchange.com.
They suggest people to write a review on MyWOT, and TrustPilot, trying referral program for the main feature, and to follow them on Facebook.
At the bottom of the widget is a button to return to previous, claiming part. Click on THANK YOU! I WANT MORE! button to repeat the process.
The only way to access this result and status part is by making a claim from the faucet, no direct access. If we need to do something here, do it before clicking the button at the bottom or we need to wait before claiming again.
Step 3 – Repeat the Process
Now we can see that the address is still there and the claim buttons become a timer. We need to wait for 60 minutes before we can claim again.
If we move to other page on bestchange.com, we will lose the wallet address. Unless we still have it on clipboard, we need to copy again from the wallet.
I think it’s better to keep the browser tab open.
There is a sound notification like piano sound to let us know that the timer is done. But, we can hear it only if we return to starting or claiming page and see the timer goes to zero, not if we stay on status part.
Do not try to click on the white box again to verify when the timer is still there. The green check mark will disappear when the timer reach zero and we have to verify again.
Step 4 – Requesting Cash Out
Once we reach the minimum amount to withdraw, after a claim, on the status and result page will show a REQUEST PAYOUT button below the status. Right now the minimum is set for 3,000 satoshi.
If we click on that button they will empty the balance, withdrawing everything. We can’t set the amount to withdraw.
No need to make a request right away but since there is no additional fee, there is no point on keeping the money there. After we submit a request, there is an announcement about processing payment and we need to wait up to 2 days because it was done manually
Below the status a transaction history will appear and we can see the status. Expected status if it hasn’t been processed but it will change to the blockchain info.
All we need to do is just wait while keep claiming again from the faucet. That’s it.
How much can we get
Some faucets are like BestChange.com faucet, they set a range of possible amount of bitcoins we can earn. Based on what we can see on the website the range is from 1 satoshi to 1,000 satoshi.
The question is how much exactly are we going to get. On other program, even with relatively similar range, what they actually give is very limited.
Knowing the exact number might be important for some people because this could give an idea of how long before we can withdraw the money. Getting always 1 satoshi every claim would be possible and probably not recommended to use the program any longer.
The exact number
I tried to keep a record of every claim since BestChange.com paid me for the first time. To reach the second 3,000 satoshi I need like 153 claims.
Or it was around 20 satoshi per claim. The third time, I need like 193 claims or about 15 satoshi per claim. Based on that, collectively the average number is about 17 satoshi.
I guess we can say that I was very lucky on the second one. I got over 400 satoshi per claim twice for the second and only got over 100 satoshi one claim once until the third.
The minimum so far was 5 satoshi and the highest I got 418 satoshi. How long did it take?
With me claiming everyday with almost 10 claims per day, I can reach the minimum amount like 2 weeks. It can be longer or faster depending on how lucky we get on higher amount.
Comparison to other Faucet
To understand whether the amount we get is good or not, we can try to make some comparison with other similar faucet program. Based on the number above, let’s say we get between 15 to 20 satoshi per claim from BestChange.com
Freebitco.in is usually my standard for good amount of earning for a faucet since they are probably one of the longest one. It is also an hourly faucet that gives at least 25 satoshi per claim fixed amount with a chance up to $200 worth of bitcoin.
Cointiply.com, after the recent change, I can only get like 15 Cointiply Coins or almost 30 satoshi per 12 hours. So it’s like 1 or 2 satoshi per hour. There is a chance to get higher amount or even jackpot.
Ethereum-Faucet.org and their group, can give us like $0.0005 worth of ETH per 240 minutes or 4 hours. Convert that to BTC we get about 8 satoshi or 2 satoshi per hour.
ClaimFreeCoins.io, a 5 minutes faucet can give us at least 15 satoshi per claim, probably the highest. We can get over 10 times for an hour.
But the claiming process can be very hard and annoying. Just need to do once per hour and we already get roughly the same.
Bitnyx.com, a 30 minutes interval, can give up to 30 per claim but so far the average amount is about 10 satoshi. So we get 20 per hour.
Free-Litecoin.com and their group, another hourly faucet, giving altcoins that equals around 13 to 15 satoshi per claim. Each also gives a chance to get higher amount or jackpot up to 0.008 BTC.
There are several 5 minutes faucets but with claim limit per day. Assuming we can do about 10 claims for hourly claims, BestChange.com faucet can give us about 150 to 200 satoshi per day.
TrustBTCFaucet.com, 5 minutes, 30 claims limit before they start to slow down the countdown, with longer interval can give us about less than 10 satoshi per claim. So we can get about 300 satoshi per day.
AllCoins.pw, another 5 minutes faucet, with 50 claims limit, can give us a fixed amount of 4 satoshi per claim at this time rate. Or 200 satoshi per day.
So, based on the all of these comparison, assuming I can keep getting the same amount of bitcoins, BestChange.com faucet is giving more or less the same amount as the average faucet programs.
But, remember that the claiming process is very simple. Just solve one captcha which sometimes automatically get the green check mark and no ads at all.
Others can give us more but very irritating. Of course there is another thing about being sustainable in the business which sometimes requires faucet program to offer less free money or display more ads.
As I mentioned earlier that Cointiply recently started to give less because they are not making any money despite showing some ads from the faucet. They used to be an hourly faucet like BestChange.com and we can get like 25 satoshi per claim.
Hopefully BestChange.com can do better.
Referral / Affiliate Program
What we can get from BestChange.com or any faucet, no matter how big, they are just pennies. Some people might think that it is not worth their time.
But, by offering an affiliate or referral program any money making program can even become a passive income. In theory it can be unlimited, without we do the job ourselves.
What we do is we invite other people to join the program, and if they use the program, or in this case, claiming from faucet, making money, we can get paid too. It is actually not a bad idea, we get paid for inviting other people to get paid as well.
How does it work?
Like any other company who offers online affiliate program, they will give their members or affiliates a unique link with member’s ID attached to it. The one below is mine for BestChange.com.
If anybody click on that link, and join the program, they will become my referral. In the case of BestChange.com, if they do the claiming process, like I described above, they will get free bitcoins and I can get 10% the amount of those claims.
If we can get enough number of referrals, then those referrals can generate enough even a full time income. We just need to share the referral link to other people using other platform like forums, messenger, social media, our blog or website.
The link can be found on the status or result page of the widget right after we make a claim. Just click on the link and it will automatically copy.
BestChange.com also provides share buttons to several social media platform to make it easier. The available buttons right now are for Facebook, Twitter, VK, Google+, Telegram.
Comment and Suggestion
Since this is just a mini program, there is no other promotional tool like banners or tracking system. We can only see the total number of referrals and earnings.
This is not essential. Other programs might provide banners but it could also be outdated. We can even design our own banners for any program not just BestChange.com.
Another drawback for a mini program, is how we sign up. Instead of using email, we use our wallet address. If somehow we need to change not just the address but the entire wallet, we could end up losing not just the earning but every referral we already get.
Changing or using different wallet address will be considered as registering a new account. Can’t merge the status between those multiple accounts.
If we still don’t have any referral yet, we can claim by ourselves, reach the minimum to withdraw and cash out everything then use new account. So, change it before the long run.
I suggest that anybody to use a web wallet address for this matter instead of desktop or any device wallet where we install a program on our devices. We lose the device, phone, tablet or laptop, we lose the wallet, thus losing the BestChange.com account.
With web wallet, we don’t need to worry about losing our devices. The wallet is on the website can be accessible anytime.
Yes the downside of web wallet is opening a chance to be hacked and got the money stolen. But the point is to use temporary wallet which then we can transfer again to other more secure wallet.
It is a general rule of thumb not to keep a lot of money on web wallet. Freebitco.in that I suggested above is also a web wallet.
Also, as a mini program or side feature, there is a chance that they might shut down the entire faucet feature. Of course they might consider to make some adjustment first like lowering the bitcoin amount or longer timer or interval but if they started to lose money, shutting down is still possible.
Therefore, I don’t recommend people to focus on promoting this program. Try to diversify with other faucet program.
Last thing about the referral program is the payment. Based on the explanation on the website, we can get 10% from the referral request.
BestChange.com will pay members if the referrals request a cashout, not from every claim. So, with 3,000 cash out we get around 300 but if the referrals stop claiming midways, we get nothing at all.
I could be wrong though but if it’s true, just thought anybody should know the details before they start accusing BestChange.com as scam.
How to get more referrals
Well, sharing the link is a must but how exactly? Sharing to the wrong people is like a salesman approaching stranger. People hate that.
If we try to share on our social media, people might get annoyed if they are not interested. Especially if we are spamming, sharing over and over again like multiple times within a day.
We could lose our followers, risking any network we have built. Maybe it’s better to have alternate account specifically just to share this kind of program.
We look for community or other users that we know are interested. Then we can share with them the link.
A better way might be to share on forums. Not just any forum of course, but related to online money making program, bitcoin or cryptocurrencies.
The problem with using any free platform like this is that we are probably not the only one who promote the same program. We have to offer something more than just the referral link like anybody else.
Another thing is that these free platforms have rules that they can suddenly change about promotion and not to mentioned, shutting down their service entirely. We have to start over our campaign if they delete them.
A better way would be to have our own website. We can share anything not just one program but others with the same, similar or related topics.
Having a website is like having a shop in real life. People can always come back to and find out more programs to use.
Since it’s an online shop, it will stay open 24/7, no need to wait for us to wake up and can be accessed from everywhere around the world. The best part of having our own place or website is that any search engine like Google will do the promotion work non stop.
And they will show the website as a result to exactly people who are interested in it. They use the search engine to look for it and get the website we build as the result. No need to worry about being annoying salesman.
Those people will access the website, see what we have to offer, and if they are interested, they will become our referrals for any program we promote. Once we have enough referrals for BestChange.com or every programs we promote, we can have passive income even full time income.
That is exactly how people can build their business online. They own a website, fill the website with contents that can help promote a program, and let it work automatically.
If you are interested to know more about how to build a website and turn it into an online business, keep reading. I will share with you later about a training program that anybody can use.
I don’t know much about their main feature as exchange monitor but given that BestChange.com has been around for over a decade, I think we can say that they are doing a good job. They make a good enough profit to offer free money via faucet feature.
The faucet itself, is an hourly, good number for timer or interval. No need to claim too often like every 5 minutes but still has a possibility to earn more using random number.
We can get down from 1 up to 1,000 satoshi per claim but in reality we can get like 15-20 satoshi per claim. The minimum threshold to withdraw is also very small for payment to direct wallet.
Right now, we can cash out all of our earnings once we reach 3,000 satoshi. And without fees, which I think could be problematic for using Bitcoin.
Maybe BestChange.com is paying the fee but very small amount which anybody has to wait to get confirmation. They promise to process within two days though.
With the affiliate or referral feature, this faucet can still become a passive even full time income. But since it is just a mini program, they are lack of tools to track or promote.
We have to sign up with wallet address so make sure we have a long term wallet for the long run. Another options is to use the web wallet as temporary address which we can transfer to the main wallet later.
Remember that it is a possibility for BestChange.com to stop offering free money via faucet. This is just a side feature for them and if they start to lose money from it, they could make an adjustment or shut it down completely.
Good faucet to claim with very easy claiming process but try not to focus on promoting this faucet. Diversify by using other faucet as well.
If you still interested to get your free coins, you can start claiming using this link. It’s FREE.
As I mentioned before that what we can get from claiming the faucet is actually very low. The key is to use the referral program, get a lot of referrals and let them do the work and we get the commission.
In order to do that, it’s better to have our own website, promote the program until we can get enough referrals and they can generate income for us. That is how we can have an online business.
If you are interested to learn more about building a website and turn it into a business, even a passive income, there is a training program that you can try.
On this training, not only we can learn about how to, but we can actually set up the website, grow it until it can generate income. We can learn from a lot of experts who were once just like you and me, know almost nothing about online business.
This is an easy training program that even a guy without a college degree can use it. Within two years he started to have a full time income from his website and quit his regular job.
We can even ask the owner the help out directly. Try it. Join the program for FREE and try to reply their first message to you and see if they get back and help you out.
You can learn more about the training from my review here.
We grow the business and website by using affiliate programs just like BestChange.com, either their main program or the faucet. Here is my list of other affiliate program that you can try.
I will keep updating the page and add more programs. So, stay tuned.
Well, that’s all I can share with you about faucet from BestChange.com. Maybe I missed something and you have more question about it, or if you want to add your experience, view, opinion, don’t hesitate to use the comment section below.
Maybe you also have other experience with other similar programs with this, hopefully a better one, you can suggest something as well. I would love to help if I could and learn more about online program.
Hope my reviews can help. Thanks for reading.
