info about bitcoins
Bitcoin is an electronic currency, which you can do transactions with, like buying a host like my website. The bitcoin should be virtually "mined". Every day a certain amount will be released to people who dig the bitcoins (mining). This is done by using the power of computers, which costs a lot of electricity = money. These miners make also the transactions between accounts possible (they write the new bitcoinamount on the recipient and deduct that amount from the sender) so they ask a fee for doing these transactions.
7 April 2017 one bitcoin is worth more than 1000 euro so they subdivide: 1 bitcoin = 1 millon bits and 1 bit = 100 satoshi
You will experience earning bitcoins is actually earning satoshi; else you would earn 0,00000250 bitcoin = 250 satoshi (8 digits after the comma)
you need a bitcoinadress or wallet
To receive and send satoshi you need a bitcoinadress. There are several sites where you can create one. There are app-wallets, cold-wallets but I use the online web-wallets.. because I play with the bitcoins on my computer then an online web-wallet seems easier. Go for the most secure ones: Coinbase or Blockchain or Block.io
making money: faucets
Surf to a faucet, this is a website that sends you a small amount of satoshi for seeing their advertisements. There are sites that ask you to proove you are not a robot claiming/stealing this money without seeing the ads, by doing a captcha. Because faucets pay a small amount, you need to save (= risky to lose when sites disappears suddenly) until you rech a larger amount to get it on your bitcoinadress. Micropayeers like epay, faucethub, faucetsystem are the solution: the earnings from these faucets go straight to one of these micropayeers; the money is yours! And when you reach a threshold like 10 000 satoshi you can get a withraw to your bitcoinadress.
my own faucets and game
I made a few faucets: you post your bitcoinadress, do the google-catpcha and after 10 seconds you can claim a random award to your micropayeer. You
can choose between faucethub and faucetsystem. These are daily faucets and the way I like them: no popups, no redirects or downloads.
Also I like doing programming and I created an easy game: duckfaucetgame: you gain satoshi(points) for clicking on images like rats, eggs,
visiting sponsored sites, doing a quiz, solving a puzzle etc. When you collect 100 satoshi(points) you will get them paid like with the faucet.

making money: investments
You can send an amount of bitcoins to a website, wait for a while to withraw and earn a higher percentage than you
invested. This is a very dangerous business because most of these site are piramid sites: they pay the first investors
with the money of other investors so after a while no one gets paid anymore. I use a website that monitors these
websites, but despite this, it stays risky! Invest only money you can lose (like the lottery)
I post also kind of a blog about my first scam-experience.
