If you are new to cryptocurrency, then let me shortly explain to you how it works.
Ethereum is a decentralized, open-source blockchain with smart contract functionality platform. The resulting cryptocurrency from this platform is called Ether (ETH). So, technically speaking, you will be paid in Ether and not Ethereum.
As for how you will get paid, these online rewards sites will ask you to participate in the earning opportunities they offer in return for a small compensation. The reward you will receive from these earning opportunities can then be converted to Ether when you reach the threshold required to do so.
To do that, you will need to use an Ethereum wallet. Think of this as your Ethereum bank account. It will allow you to check your balance, do transactions, and more. This is what will allow you to spend the Ethereum you earn.
So, before you sign up to any site that will allow you to earn Ether, I would suggest you create an Ethereum wallet first. There are plenty of Ethereum wallet providers online, so it shouldn’t be hard to find one.
Now, when it’s time to convert the rewards you’ve earned from online rewards sites, you just have to provide your Ethereum wallet address so the site will know where to send it. If you want to learn more about the ins and outs of Ethereum, I suggest you visit Ethereum.org.
Where can you get paid in Ethereum?
As mentioned earlier, you can earn Ether by joining online rewards sites, specifically GPT (Get-Paid-To) sites and apps. There are several sites and apps you can join that pay in Ether.
The question is, which ones should you join? Ideally, you will want to join a site or app that has good earning potential so you can earn a decent amount without investing a lot of time.
But let me be frank with you. There aren’t a lot of great sites and apps that offer this mode of payment yet compared to Bitcoin. But the ones I will be including in this guide are decent enough and are also legit and free to join. You really just need to invest your time and a bit of effort.
And to maximize your earnings from these platforms, you have to take advantage of all the earning opportunities they offer. The reason for this is, GPT sites and apps offer multiple ways for you to earn. So, to earn the most, you should participate in all the earning opportunities these platforms offer.
Plus, I would recommend you join around 5 to 7 sites and apps to earn as much Ether as you possibly can.

Short summary: Latium is a type of freelancing platform where you can find a lot of jobs. You can find very short tasks like taking surveys, signing up for websites, social media tasks, user tests, and similar. But you can also find projects that require more time and effort like translations, design, marketing, development, and more.
Some of the projects here can give you really big earnings (as in hundreds of dollars) but the high-paying tasks, of course, takes some skills to get accepted for.
With some effort, it can give you some really great earnings and you can get paid in Ethereum, in many other different cryptocurrencies, or via PayPal.

Short summary: PicoWorkers is a micro job site that will allow you to earn by visiting sites, signing up as a member of sites, reading articles, and a lot more. What makes this site a good option is it has a relatively low payout threshold ($5).

The only problem is, they don’t really specify which countries it is available in. So, the best way to check if it is available in your country is to go to the app store and see if it is available for download. If it is, that means you are eligible to join.

Available in: Available in many countries Other payout methods: PayPal Payout threshold: $1 More information:Read full Microwork review
Short summary: Microwork is a Get-Paid-To (GPT) app that will pay you for completing small tasks. It only offers one kind of earning opportunity and that is through their paid tasks. These tasks will usually ask you to take photos of certain items and upload them inside the app. So, earning is relatively simple.
Aside from earning Ether, you can also choose to convert your earnings to cash and withdraw it via PayPal. And the good thing is, you will only need to earn $1 to withdraw your earnings. The only downside to this app though is the limited earning opportunities it offers. That’s why it can only serve as a secondary option, in my opinion.
That concludes my guide on the best ways to earn Ethereum for free. As I’ve mentioned earlier in this article, all the sites mentioned above are legit and free to join. All you really need to invest is your time and a bit of effort.
And as explained earlier as well, to maximize your earnings, I suggest you join around 5 to 7 sites/apps so you’ll get access to more opportunities to earn more. But if you feel like you can handle more, you can join all the sites and apps mentioned above.
I will regularly be updating this list if I find more sites and apps that are worth joining, so remember to bookmark this page and come back to it from time to time.
