Money For Almost Nothing: Honeygain Review
Free money solutions on the internet are pretty vast. At first, there were survey websites and apps where you would be paid to fill out short surveys. Then, during the expansion of the market, apps that reward you for walking or listening to music came about.
Some are older than others, but the fact remains that after semi-passive income, there was a boom in completely passive income apps. With it, an app called Honeygain appeared. Does it deliver on its promise to provide passive income effortlessly?
How does it work?
Right off the bat, the big plus of Honeygain is its availability on nearly every operating system (Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux), which means that you surely have a device that would be able to run it. The installation process is simple. You can find all the download links on their Downloads page.
Honeygain works in the background of your devices. You do not have to fulfill any surveys or do any other tasks in order to earn. Since it is not intrusive, it would not interfere with the regular use of your devices. It does not use a lot of internet connection, hence, network activities would not be interrupted too.
How it works under the hood is easy to understand. What you do is passively share your unused internet bandwidth with the Honeygain network. The internet you share is then used for services such as price aggregation, ad verification, etc. You can find the complete list on their website. Of course, in exchange for that, you get paid.
How do you get paid?
As you share your unused internet bandwidth on Honeygain, you constantly get credits for it. In this credit system, 1000 credits translate to $1. You get 3 credits for each 10 MB of traffic shared and 6 credits for each hour spent in the Content Delivery.
Content Delivery is a functionality offered by Honeygain that is available in certain countries only. More internet bandwidth would be used in it, but you would also earn a lot more while active in it. Besides regional restrictions, you would also need a quick and stable internet connection. However, if you do have it, you would not feel any effect on your internet speed while using Content Delivery.
There is, however, a minimal amount of credits that you need to accrue in order to payout. On Honeygain, this amount is 20000 credits ($20). Once you reach it, you can payout using PayPal or JumpToken (a cryptocurrency). Payouts are managed quickly, especially if requested on a weekday.
Honeygain allows one device per IP address/network and 10 devices in total per account. If you have multiple IP addresses that you can use, you can connect more devices to your account, boosting your earnings and shortening the time required to reach the payout threshold of 20000 credits.
Another boost to reaching the threshold would be to take the offer on their website, which would grant you $5 worth of credits to your account just for registration. You can also register using a referral link from your friend for the same effect. By having your own referrals, though, you would receive an equivalent of 10% of their earnings.
A sense of community
Honeygain also appears to focus strongly on building a community of loyal users who are there to help each other with the service itself.
With incredible numbers of servers and messages on Discord, for example, there is no surprise that Honeygain has an active Discord server. It also has communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit.
Those are great places to get some quick help in case something is not working or just to check for updates from the staff. Besides that, Honeygain communities constantly offer contests where you can win large amounts of credits, further increasing your overall credit count and shortening the time it would take to reach the payout threshold.
Not exactly a community per se, but it is worth mentioning that Honeygain has a Trustpilot score of 4.5/5, signifying that the application itself is completely legitimate and does deliver on its promises of passive income making.
With all that in mind, it is safe to say that Honeygain does deliver on its promise of getting passive income effortlessly. It works without interrupting your activities, nor does it require you to do anything there. A vast community and positive reviews speak for themselves in this case. Needless to say, it will not make you rich, but it will provide you with some nice extra income.
