What are the best ways to get Bitcoin?

You have a lot of options, ones more accurate and easy than others, so it depends on your capital to invest or your will to change your life style.

 

1 The best and easiest way to earn Bitcoins is to accept them as a means of payment. If you have a small business the integration is done quickly and easily. No matter what business you run, no matter if you sell goods or services.

2 Many websites offer you Bitcoins if you complete tasks. With most of these sites the concept is that you visit the site and just for looking at it you get a small amount of Bitcoins. The concept has something in common with watching good old free TV. You watch a lot of ads and in between you get something you actually want to see, like a film or music clips.

3 Bitcoin lending is a good way to make more Bitcoins from what you already have. And please notice this disclaimer: only lend through sites that you trust. Such sites will comply with the usual requirements that you expect from non-Bitcoin related sites as well. That means they have proper terms and conditions in place, they disclose their status of incorporation and contact details. Some sites in the Bitcoin world do not do this and in the end people wonder what happened to their Bitcoins. Therefore, when you earn Bitcoins from Bitcoin lending watch who you deal with and only use Bitcoins which you can afford to lose.

4 Bitcoin mining is the process by which new Bitcoins are generated. When you perform mining, your computer adds new Bitcoin transactions to the block chain (a public ledger where all Bitcoin transactions are stored) and searches for new blocks. A block is a file that has the most recent Bitcoin transactions recorded in it. When your computer discovers a new block, you receive a certain number of Bitcoins. A block contains X BTC, this number changes throughout time and gets smaller by the factor 0.5 every four years.

5 Earn Bitcoins through tips, it is much like accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment. You need a wallet, a QR-code with your Bitcoin address on it and the people who can potentially give you a tip need to be aware of it. There are various places where you can receive Bitcoin tips.

6 Some people would say that trading is a form of gambling. While there these two things have something in common, there are also fundamental differences. When you gamble (and assuming that it’s a fair game) you have a certain probability of winning and losing. When you trade assets, this gets much more complex.

7 Getting your monthly paycheck in Bitcoins is probably the steadiest way to earn Bitcoins. There aren’t many organizations who would pay you in Bitcoins but there are some at least. And maybe there will be more as acceptance increases continuously. Gavin Andresen, core Bitcoin developer of the Bitcoin Foundation stated in this interview that he gets paid in Bitcoins.

8 I’m not a friend of gambling but it is a way to earn Bitcoins so in order to make this list complete it needs to be mentioned here. However, I won’t list any links to gambling sites here. It’s fairly easy to research them if you are interested. And if you clicked on some of the above links you probably already came across some Bitcoin gambling sites.
