Coinbase Overview

Coinbase is an international digital wallet that allows you to securely buy, sell, use, and accept cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. All you need to do is create a Coinbase account to start buying and selling Bitcoin. You can also use or send Bitcoin to anyone in the world with a Bitcoin wallet address.

After you create your free account, you can also participate in Coinbase Learn & Earn program to get free crypto tokens for learning about different cryptocurrencies.

Coinbase Earn

Coinbase launched a program called Coinbase Earn in which users can earn free crypto just by watching videos and completing a quiz to learn about new coins and tokens.

The Bottom Line

I made a list of the best crypto sign-up bonuses and another post on different ways to earn free cryptocurrency.

These are easy methods to get your feet wet on crypto without breaking the bank. Cryptocurrency has been slowly gaining adoption by mainstream investors, but you should view it as a speculative investment for now and invest only what you can afford to lose.

That being said, I do have a funny story (or sad story depending on how you look at it).

Shortly after graduating college, I heard about this virtual currency thing called “Bitcoin” through the Anandtech Off-Topic forum, a discussion board for techies.

On a whim, I bought several Bitcoins for less than $200 at the time. Some members in that forum purchased the coins for less than $1 in 2011. No one… and I mean no one, thought it would skyrocket to the price of $46,000+ it is today:

(Image from Coindesk)

One guy who has since disappeared (probably to his own private island), bought $2,500 worth of Bitcoins for around $1 per coin. If he held them for nine years up through now, that $2,500 speculative investment is now worth $57,500,000! Mind boggling!

I sold most of mine in 2016 for $700 and have just a little bit left from that initial purchase. Hence, the reason why that guy I knew has gone off the grid while I’m blogging about finance 🙂

Mine neither…It used to show them to me but then it just quit one day! It’s bull, I think if you participate they don’t like it! I asked them in a chat and was told someone would call me but no one did.

Note that if you withdraw your earnings, Coinbase is likely to block this option for you. (I did this three times and then no more options appeared, but I can see that there have been many more since.)

At this time, there are only 3 chances to earn crypto on Coinbase. Stellar Lumens-$10, Amp-$3, fetch ai-$3
So just a total of $16

The Coinbase learn and earn is fantastic! I had no problems save for my connection stopping a few times. I use a laptop and not the phone app so maybe you should try that route if you are having trouble. What a great way to earn for free! Way to go Coinbase!

I’ve been with Coinbase a long time new users must sign up and have a verified acct before earn program is available (24-72 hrs) once activated there is currently about 48-53$ available in learn and earn…also try coinmarketcap and earnathon…but just register for Coinbase…the earn program will become available in a few day once verified

Don’t know what everyone has going on but it works and now I’m looking for more opportunities to repeat it. I’m a dude from Mississippi. Just a dude. If I had no problems with getting this free crypto, you shouldn’t either. Try to clear all your junk or restart your phone. Go to the Coinbase app and get verified. It’s easy. Then look around the app until you see “Rewards”. It’s on there. Watch the 1,2, and 3 minute videos and trade it for BTC right on the app. It’s so dang easy. I got Clover, Graph, Bond, Amp, Stellar, and even $9 worth of Compound. I even felt kinda bad and left $3 worth of Balancer in Coinbase because it was so easy.

I earn $35 in approximately 15-20 minutes. I converted it to Bitcoin and sent it out a few minutes later. The only reason I am on here is I’m looking for more learn and earn possibilities.

Can you do Coinbase Earn if you have a Coinbase Pro account as well as a Coinbase account?

You can earn it on regular Coinbase and then transfer it to Pro using the deposit feature in Pro.
