Sometimes it's really worth to be persistent

Sometimes it is really worth to be persistent.jpg

In January this year, I decided to go on a discovery tour in the crypto world. It was not that I was bored of hive (I'm never bored of hive lol) but I wanted to see what else was out there. On this expedition, I discovered noise.cash which is a kind of twitter and Torum that could be compaired to Facebook.

When I start to do something I have a lot of stamina :-)

When I try out something, I can be quite persistent. So every day I took the missions on Torum and every day I logged into noise.cash and was active on it. I have been doing that for the better part of 10 months now. However, I hardly spent more than 15-20 minutes per day on these platforms. I tended to prefer noise.cash because there were actually quite a lot of hivians there and the short form content is kind of missing on Hive. We chatted and liked each others stuff. Among Hivians we are not scared to upvote things and it was a nice experience for everybody involved. I also used these platforms to promote my hive posts. It brought me quite a lot of views and comments. I built some nice relationships on these platforms, mainly with hivians :-)

The financial aspects

With noise.cash you get actually some BCH when people like your stuff. As my payout address I added my blocktrade deposit address. Whenever I earn something on noise.cash it is automatically exchanged into hive. I sometimes get like 5 payments per day of 0.5 hive each... not too bad :-)

With Torum, you get paid in the currency of the platform XTM for simple tasks like posting, liking, commenting and simply logging in. The problem is that it wasn't really possible to withdraw anything from the platform. Nevertheless, I went on using it and accumulating my XTM.

In the meantime things have changed on Torum and it's now possible to withdraw XTM to ETH... I kind of love ETH... so cheap transactions lol. However the XTM token is also available on BSC. At the moment you simply can't withdraw it directly to BSC but probably one day it will be possible.

Today the exchange Kucoin has added XTM to its platform. This is big news and brings a big plus to the token.

So far, I didn't really care about these XTM tokens. Well because I can't really withdraw them but today when I logged into my wallet, I all the same had to look twice...

The number of XTM that I have accumulated so far: 3000
Price per XTM on Kucoin: 1.5$
Total value: 4500$....

That is amazing Achim!
The perks of curiosity and persistence!
To be honest I've been neglecting Noise and Torum with less time because of offline work and focused on Hive more..but any now and then I would get a few XTM from the missions and later I used the stacking feature they add a few months ago so I could made a few extra with it. I will be able to get it back at the end of December so hopefully on that time BCS is a better option!

Free moneys are always welcome whatever the amount 😁

I really hope that it will be possible to withdraw to BSC soon. I won't even try to go the ETH road lol... too much headache and fees :-)

Investing your time on crypto content platforms is like dollar cost averaging into a stock over many years.

This is a very intersting thought. It's true, it's like dollar cost averaging but you actually invest your time rather than money.

I never really tried torum but I'm always on noise.cash too on a daily basis. What's great there is we can really consume a lot of content because of its short-form nature and the interactions are very positive. (erinclair on noise, just in case you are not aware. Haha)

Oh I know you on noise.cash ;-). I agree that the short form nature of noise cash makes it very nice to interact and I enjoy it a lot!

Congratulations. I didn't bother doing noise.cash or torum but I am glad it worked out for you.

Man where would you find the time for these platforms. We love what you do on hive. If we write a post we know that at least we will have a comment by @jfang003 :-).

I think I found you on noise.cash. Blocktrades really makes things easy and I like to see fresh hive coming in regularly :-)

As do I, a few days ago my chris.topher account claimed 11HBD in rewards, never have I received such a high amount. This is not magic, I just have never been this active before, so I can see how this will work into a fulltime income overtime :-)

That's great! The magic of hive is that it's actually quite scalable. If you take the HBD and hive that you earn and power it up, this income will generate curation rewards that are about 10% APR. So the more you earn, the more you power up, the more money you will generate.

Not to mention that powering up the tokens that represent the communities I am active in like CTP, 1UP, Hive, Leo, will give me a higher upvote value :-D

Exactly, the more upvote power, the more influence and suddenly people will want to be friends with you ;-)

I will need to look into Blocktrades a little further. I was unaware that it would take BCH and convert it directly into hive. This would be great since I have it sent to Hive Engine in Swap.BCH then trade it for Swap.Hive there are some days where the going rate is not that favorable because of the difference between buy and sell orders. I think I have seen Blocktrades on the Exchange tab on the PeakD wallet. Thanks for sharing.

Actually I'm using the blocktrades deposit address and each time I generate a tip in noise, it sends it to blocktrades as a deposit and swaps it to hive. Over hive-engine is also a good strategy but I believe that swap.bch lacks a bit liquidity and you might loose on that.

That is some awesome sauce. I didn't realize the value of the XTM token. My concern was how I would withdraw as I don't really use ETH. I really need to start using these other platforms more.

I didn't know you could do that with blocktrades, I thought it was just a way to buy hive. That's all I ever use blocktrades for.

So how do you send the BCH straight to blocktrades?

So how do you send the BCH straight to blocktrades?

I first generated a deposit address for bch in blocktrades. Then, in noise cash I have set my blocktrades deposit address as my payout wallet. It's now all on auto-pilote and fresh hive is coming in at a regular pace :-)

Thanks. Gotta set that up, it'll be so much easier.

Appreciate your sharing. There's indeed lots to discover and learn about crypto these days. Am trying to explore different areas of crypto/blockchain myself.

It's important to be open to learn new stuff and to discover. It always takes energy to get into something new but this allows to stay flexible of mind and to discover things that others don't. The nice side effect is that you can always write about what you do and share it on hive :-)

Woah, there's some real nuggets in this post! Getting Noise.Cash BCH payments automatically converted into Hive is very smart. So far, my intention has been to convert them into BTC and send the satoshi over to Freebitcoin!

Congratulations on the big win with XTM - a well deserved reward for your efforts.

Yes the BCH payments are really nice. I've set the payout threshold to 0.5$. Each time I get a payment, it's about 0.6 hive added to my account :-). There are some days I get like 5 payments.
