The number of bitcoin users is growing all around the world but there’s still too much friction to get bitcoin. Why isn’t it easier to earn bitcoin? Well, A-Ads is just one of many companies that have been serving the bitcoin community by making it easier to both use and earn bitcoin in pretty much any country. For this article, we will be learning about how to earn bitcoin with A-Ads.
How To Earn Bitcoin with A-Ads
There are 2 basic ways to earn bitcoin with A-Ads.
1. You can earn bitcoin by referring new advertisers to their service.
2. You can earn bitcoin by putting their ad blocks on your site and earning revenue from advertisers.
Let’s walk through how each one works and how you can begin earning bitcoin as soon as possible.
How To Earn Bitcoin as an Affiliate with A-Ads
Becoming an affiliate with A-Ads only takes a matter of seconds and can be the beginning of some smart passive income if you’re willing to put in the effort to build a network.
Affiliates receive 50% of the A-Ads fees which is approximately 10% of the amount spent by advertisers. So, if you refer a new advertiser and they spend 1 BTC on an ad campaign, then you would receive approximately .1 BTC just for referring that one user. If you want to really work for it, you could refer dozens of advertisers and generate long-term bitcoins earnings all without having to run your own website. Pretty cool, huh? So, all you need to do is share your affiliate link on social media, mailing lists and anywhere else that you think might be a good place. That being said, let’s create an affiliate link.
The first thing you need to do is go to A-Ads.com and click on the “Earn” tab at the top of the page.
This takes you to the page to create an ad block but we are going to create an affiliate link for now so click on the “Affiliate” tab and we will go through all of the steps. We walk through earning with banner ads later in this article.
Affiliate Link Description – You need to give this link a description. This lets advertisers what sort of traffic your link provides. Since we’re creating this link for this tutorial, we just decided to give the description “How To Earn Bitcoin with A-Ads”.
Once you’ve given your Affiliate link a description, you need to decide how you’d like to be compensated. Since we’re a bitcoin educational blog, we’re going to be showing you how to get paid in bitcoin. Yay!
Payment Address & Withdrawal Threshold – Paste your Bitcoin Address in the “Withdrawal Address” field. This is where your payments will be sent so be sure that this is your address and you control the private keys. We personally recommend using an address that was generated on a cold-storage device since they provide the most security.
You also need to set the payment threshold for your payments. This is how much bitcoin your link needs to generate before you will receive a payment.
We encourage you to set a higher payment threshold so you receive larger payments on the blockchain and it costs less to consolidate your bitcoin later but more on that in another post.
All done! We’ve generated our first affiliate link with A-Ads.
This is what it looks like: https://a-ads.com?partner=1128249
We earn approximately 10% of the revenue spent on any ad campaigns that are generated using this link.
You can create your own links and share them on social media, mailing lists, forums, in text messages and anywhere else you can think to share it but be sure to not be spammy and only share it in relevant circles.
If affiliate links are not your style, you can always earn bitcoin by putting A-Ads on your website. Let’s walk through how that process works.
How To Earn Bitcoin With A-Ads Units
Now that you’ve learned how to begin to earn bitcoin online using an affiliate link, let’s take a look at how can you earn bitcoin passively with banner ads on a website.
Again, we will be starting from the “Earn” tab on A-Ads.
Ad Unit Size & Site – When you first land on the page, the very first thing you will need to do is decide on what size banner ad you will be using on your site. You can choose from a few dozen different ad sizes including the option for an adaptive ad. We decided to create a 728 x 90 pixel ad for this article. You can see it at the top of this post just after the intro paragraph.
You also need to tell them what website your ad will be shown on. This allows them to properly catalog your site so that advertisers can target websites specific to their niche. We will obviously be putting this ad here on WhatIsBitcoin.com
Filter Content – This is where you are able to decide which types of ads you do NOT want to display on your site. Since we want our site to be suitable for younger audiences, we do not want any “NSFW” ads (Not Safe For Work) or any “Shady” content to be advertised. We happen to like risk so we don’t care if ads for high-risk investments and gambling are displayed. Note: The more of these boxes that you check, the less revenue your ad will generate per 1000 ad impressions and any clicks.
Withdrawal Address & Threshold – This is where your payments will be sent to as soon as your ad revenue has met your withdrawal threshold.
Again, we suggest setting your payment threshold as high as you reasonably can to lower the cost of consolidating your
Ok. We’re all done. We’ve successfully created an ad block for our website and we didn’t need to give away any of our personal information and we don’t need a bank account to receive payments. Awesome!
Another nice little bonus…
If you have A-Ads on your site and there are currently no advertisers to fill your ad block, A-Ads will advertise your referral link so there’s even greater potential to earn more bitcoin over time.
Those are the two most upfront ways to earn bitcoin with A-Ads but you can still earn using their advertising service.
Advertising with A-Ads
Last but not least, you can drive more traffic to your website with A-Ads. If your website generates any ad revenue of its own or maybe you sell goods or services, simply buying ads can earn you revenue by generating new leads.
One of our favorite features is their CPA (Cost Per Action) option which allows an advertiser to get free traffic to their site and only payout when a certain action is completed. This can be getting a user to sign up for an email list, completing a form or buying a product. CPA advertising is a great option for smaller business since nobody pays for anything until some sort of value exchange takes place.
A-Ads has included an interesting transparency feature that allows the owner of an ad unit to publicly show the finance details associated with any given ad unit. The reason we mention this is because we want to show all of our readers exactly how much bitcoin we earn with this particular ad unit. You can follow this link here and see what kind of revenue this particular ad block.

Not only can you earn bitcoin by referring new advertisers, but you can also earn bitcoin by displaying ads on your website and get paid in the world’s most widely used digital form of money. You just need to have access to the internet and the desire to earn some bitcoin. Good luck.
