In our previous article on how you earn your first [piece of a] Bitcoin without investing, we took a closer look at Bitcoin Faucets. While these faucets are a great tool for the novice user, they only offer minimal information on things you should know about Bitcoin. So, why not earn some money and extend your knowledge at the same time, by joining a BitcoinTalk signature campaign?
The Signature Campaign: What, How & When?
Even though Bitcoin has its very own Wikipedia page, it’s not as comprehensive as you would think. Most people prefer to stick to the BitcoinTalk forum in order to remain up-to-date regarding Bitcoin and its technological advancements. However, there is a lot to learn on BitcoinTalk, once you get past the elitist attitude of most of its members and moderators.
There is an added bonus to frequenting the BitcoinTalk forums, as being an active member also lets you join a signature campaign. A signature campaign is often organized by an individual, group or company who want to promote a certain coin, platform or service. Most of these services will revolve around gambling or cloud mining, but they pay rather handsomely.
So, what is a signature campaign? Look at it as a form of advertisement without the need to create a fancy image. By advertising a certain coin, service or platform in your forum signature, that message will be visible to anyone browsing the same topics as the ones you posted in. This is also why all forum signatures require you to post a minimum number of posts on a weekly/monthly basis.
Depending on your user rank on the BitcoinTalk forums (Junior member, member, Senior member or Hero member) you are entitled to a different payout structure compared to other users. The higher your forum rank, the higher your payment will be. Increasing your rank can be achieved by being active on the BitcoinTalk forum without spamming too much.
Most signature campaigns on BTCTalk can be found in the Services section here.
Why This and Not Just Faucets?
No one is saying you can’t combine a forum signature campaign and running through various Bitcoin faucets to earn small chunks of a BTC. However, Bitcoin faucets will teach you nothing new about Bitcoin, whereas forum signature campaigns “force” you to participate in conversations in order to meet your post count criteria.
And as you engage is more conversations, you will also learn more about Bitcoin, the technology, exchanges, mining, and all of the platforms built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. After all, it is important to post constructive things which add to the conversation, instead of posting random messages such as “I agree” or “LOL” or “bump”, as those will not count towards your forum signature goal. Plus, they might get you banned for spamming as well.
