Cryptotab Browser extension pays as much as Coinhive

CryptoTab is a plug-infor Chrome, Firefox or Brave browsers. We’ve tried out many ways of mining cryptocurrencies and this is certainly the easiest to set up. No need to worry about dodgy crypto scams, this is made by 99Bitcoins.com who have a solid reputation.

All you need to do is install the extension, set it to your liking and then you’ll be building up micro-earnings anytime the browser is active. It pays out in bitcoin, but will intelligently mine whatever is most profitable at the time.
If you’re not a ClickForAfrica member, get CryptoTab with our reflink and we’ll still get a bit of commission.

Almost there!

We wanted to make it possible for people to send currency directly to individuals who are doing worthwhile community projects in the Third World. It turned out not to be as easy as we thought, but now the work is almost done.

The First Free Bitcoin Faucet

Gavin Andreson’s faucet was paying 5BTC per day in 2010!

Imagine a faucet giving away 5BTC! That’s what Gavin Andreson’s faucet was paying back in June of 2010. It was his first bitcoin-related coding project and he started it off with ฿1,100. At today’s prices, that’s close to $100,000. Your claim of ฿5 would be worth $4,290!

Security Note: Site Gravatars Disabled

We’ve disabled  gravatars (the little avatar icons that show in your profile) because they pose a security threat. Many sites use an avatar service from gravatar.com:

An “avatar” is an image that represents you online—a little picture that appears next to your name when you interact with websites.

A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. You upload it and create your profile just once, and then when you participate in any Gravatar-enabled site, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you there.

Apparently the sites using this service load the images using a hash of your address, and this hash can be used to reveal your email address. We believe the small convenience of having a picture follow you around on the web is outweighed by the security risks.
