Bitcoin Sign Up Bonuses

I created a list of crypto platforms that offer sign up bonuses in Bitcoin. All are large, trusted providers and the list is valid as of July 2021. Start at the top and work your way down the list to to make the most of the bonuses offered.

Simon Lam - The Fringe Investor

Pro tip:
All the providers on the list work in Europe. However, some may block connections from the country where you live. If you want to sign up with them use VPN to bypass geo-blocking. I recommend Tunnelbear which is free up to 500MB per month and very easy to use. 

Coinbase is one of the most popular crypto exchanges in the world and this is where you should start. They offer 3 apps: an exchange, a wallet and Coinbase Pro. Sign up bonus is for the exchange.

Pro tip:
