    h2kyaw: Hey, welcome back. Unfortunately, free bitcoins are a thing of the past. There are still some clickworker offers that give you bitcoins, but in general they are not worth your time. Today, you might want to consider getting paid in Bitcoin, or buying them. You may want to check out How do you obtain bitcoins?.
