Bitcoin (plural: bitcoins) is a digital currency that has been around for about 5 years now. It has been steadily drawing the attention of many as it is uniquely exchanged as currency without the involvement of banks or even of the government.

Bitcoins can be earned through the following ways:
Tasks & Jobs. Many employers are now willing to pay you for simple tasks online (think visiting websites, watching videos, playing online games) with bitcoins. There are also employers who are willing to hire part-time or full-time employees with bitcoins as the means of payment or salary. These jobs which pays in bitcoins, at the moment, appear to be more technical in nature though but more job opportunities are said to be opening up, mostly online, even as I write.
