I’ve decided to test out a lot of methods for passive income. It won’t be methods that you’ll get a lot of money from but I’ve found some that are actually pretty good and some that are not so good. So here is my list of some different ways of passive income.
I have a Raspberry Pi that I use to run most of these sites and am therefore able to run them 24/7. I run raspbian and access it via VNC. This way I can manage it from my main computer and my smartphone. Learn more about that here.
I’ve tested out these passive income sites:
This site is very straight forward. You sign up on the site and then click on “Start Mining Cash”. At this point, it starts an auto-surfer and you don’t have to do anything else. It’ll keep going to different sites and you’ll make a little bit of cash. You should make $0.00015 every minute. I’ve had it running for 1,905 minutes and have made $0.28575, so it checks out. Keep in mind that you have to have 15,000 total mined minutes to make a withdrawal. I run this site on my Pi and I haven’t had any issues running it 24/7.
This is pretty much the exact same as Fast Cash Mining. Although after clicking “Get Cash Free” you have to go through a captcha before it actually starts. So keep that in mind. I wasted a bit of time before I noticed that. You get $0.00010 every minute and I’ve been able to run it 24/7 as well without any issues. Withdrawals are not available at the moment since they’re moving to a new domain.
Fast Cash Mining and Get Cash FREE both seem sketchy to me. I’ll test them out and see where it goes, but I’m not expecting much from it. There’s also Cash Mining Bot which is pretty much the same. If you’re sceptical then I would suggest using some of the other different ways of passive income. My recommendation would be to stay away from this kind of sites.
This site seems a lot more legit to me. It looks better and more professional. It’s not as smooth as the last two though. For this site, you need to sign up and then navigate to the Members Area and find “Discover new websites”. Once you’ve done that you’ll be able to start the auto-surfer. I’ve had some problems with it. It seems to run out of websites pretty fast even though I have no limitations on what websites I’ll allow. I did eventually manage to fix this by downloading their AddOn and launching the surf bar from that. After doing that I got a lot more websites. Not sure why. I was able to run it on my Raspberry Pi but I had to increase my screen resolution to get more sites.
You get about 1 BTP per website you visit. 100,000 BTP = 2.10 EUR. It’s decent and they payout to PayPal.
This is also way more legit than the first two. You can tell that it’s an actual business. You sign up and navigate to “Earn points”. Here you can start the auto-surfer. There’s also a lot of other options to earn points, like clicking links and watching videos. Minimum withdrawal is 30.000 points which are 1 USD and you should be able to get that pretty quick.
I’ve been running this on my main computer since I think it would be too much for the Pi. PacketStream allows you to sell your extra bandwidth. It doesn’t use a lot of CPU, just the bandwidth. You get 0.10 USD per 1 GB you share. It’s easy to set up. Just sign up and download the program. Then you can just leave it open and earn some cash.
It’s not completely passive but it can be to some extent. On this site, you can use a faucet every 5 minutes to get Lab Flasks. Lab Flasks can be used to buy production tools. The production tools will then automatically generate Lab Flasks. Once you have enough Lab Flasks (5000) you can then withdraw them to your FaucetHub. 5000 Lab Flasks = 0.05 USD. If you spend some time setting it up you can have it running passively with minimum work.
Obviously, this is not a way to become a millionaire. It works and you’ll get a bit of cash, but it won’t be too much. But if you use a lot of the different ways of passive income, then you might be able to make some decent cash. If you’re limited to the number of surfers you can run, I would probably skip the first two. They seem very sketchy and might not pay out.
- Don’t buy a Raspberry Pi to do this. It’s going to take ages to earn your money back. Just try it on your regular computer instead.
- Don’t use your main email for any of these sites. I haven’t gotten a lot of spam from it but there’s still a possibility. Just use a secondary one.
