Eligible US residents (excluding Hawaii) will be presented a $5 Bitcoin reward offer once they successfully create an account. Users will be randomly offered one of two rewards: $5 in Bitcoin for verifying a photo ID or $5 in Bitcoin for making a first purchase. 

How it works

  • Sign up at coinbase.com.
  • After you sign up, your personalized $5 Bitcoin reward offer will be presented on the next page and will be one of two offers:
    • Reward based on verifying your ID: In this case, complete photo identity verification by uploading a photo of your driver’s license or identification card.
    • Reward based on making a first purchase: In this case, add a payment method to your account and buy any cryptocurrency on Coinbase.
  • Once you have completed the required steps of your personalized offer, you will receive a $5 Bitcoin reward in your portfolio.
