    Edit: Keeping the original text from when I created the thread, and adding in good info to the OP as it comes up. Feel free to join in the convo!

    Im sure im way behind some, and ahead of others... but I recently got involved in Crypto (Early 2021). As anyone involved in crypto knows, trying to talk to and explain crypto currencies and digital assets to people who arent "in the know" is like talking to a brick wall. So I come to Torn, to ask what others are holding, what they are looking at, which crypto influencers or trade analysis people you follow, where you think crypto is going in the future, etc.

    Ill start off:

    Right now, my main holding is in BTC and ADA with a few others in there (GRT, XLM, ALGO, OXT). Ive also been doing a bit of GPU mining for ETH, and have my ADA delegated to a staking pool. I got into crypto at the beginning of Feb, with an entry of $600, and have almost $3000 across different crypto investments stemming from that $600. (Edit: my holdings are extremely different now lol)

    Gonna try and trade my way to 1 full BTC by the end of this summer. Thats my goal anyway :P... but let me know yours!



    EARN FREE CRYPTO! If your new, and need help figuring any of this out, feel free to post in the thread or message me and I'll help ya through it! Here's the list
    :

    Install/Use Brave Browser - Earn $BAT for every advertisement you have to see, while simultaneously blocking different trackers and pop ups. You set how many ads you see, can use the Google, duckduckgo, or w.e other browsers search engine within the brave browser, and earn crypto while you do stuff you would normally do anyway.

    Theta.tv - Earn $TFUEL while you watch different streams. They have all kinds of channels. It's similar to twitch, but with the addition of crypto.. so if your into gaming, poker, NASA, crypto, or any of the other many channels THETA has available, why not earn crypto while you do? As you watch a stream, your unused bandwidth is shared with other peers, earning you TFUEL for every minute you spend watching a stream where your bandwidth is being shared.

    You can also earn TFUEL in the edge node by clicking the "cache/compute" tab and entering a theta wallet address. Set the address to a theta wallet and not your theta.tv wallet. Only monetized THETA streamers can take tfuel out of the THETA environment otherwise, so your tfuel earned will be "stuck". You can download the THETA wallet app in the app store. You HAVE to use a THETA blockchain wallet, not metamask, coinbase, or any other blockchains exchange/wallet.


    BitTorrent File System (BTFS) - Earn $BTT by "leasing" out the unused memory on your PC. You set how many GB your willing to "share" and based on that, you earn your $BTT. Roughly 100BTT per GB per month. So 500GB would earn 5000 BTT which equates to roughly $35 a month at current pricing.


    All together, depending on how much you stream, these 3 things combined should earn you roughly $40-50 per month, with absolutely $0 investments. I will update this list as I find quality projects offering "free" ways to earn crypto.



    You can also earn staking rewards (aka interest) on various crypto assets you hold! If you want to ease into crypto, almost any of the projects below are a good way earn interest regardless of price fluctuation, and watch your assets grow. Below is a list of exchanges or wallets where you can earn staking rewards (not a complete/regularly updated list):

    Coinbase:
    - Ethereum ETH (your stake is locked until eth 2.0) - 6% APR
    - Algorand ALGO - 6% APY
    - Cosmos ATOM - 5% APY
    - Tezos XTZ - 4.63% APY
    - Dai DAI - 2% APY
    - USD Coin USDC - 0.15% APY

    Binance.us:
    - Algorand ALGO - 8-10% APY
    - Cosmos ATOM - 6-9% APY
    - Tezos XTZ - 6-7% APY
    - Harmony One ONE - 2-3% APY
    - VeChain VET - 1-3% APR (paid in VeThor VTHO)
    - Qtum QTUM - 1-2% APY
    - Eos EOS - 0.5-1% APY

    Cardano Staking:
    You can also earn staking rewards for Cardano ADA in the Cardano environment by using their (PC only, there is no app) Daedalus wallet, where you can earn roughly 5% APY on your ADA. The official wallet can be found at this address: https://daedaluswallet.io/en/download/




    Airdrops are another way to get free crypto! An airdrop is essentially just free crypto handed out by the creators for promotional purposes. There are legitimate airdrops.. but there are also scam airdrops, BE WARNED. I'm only recommending one outlet for airdrops that I know to be secure from scams, but there are many out there, and can be found on social media as well.

    Find airdrops here:

    Yes they have a lawsuit against them. Although i trust in what they are doing and from most lawyers POV, they seem to be on the right track. Since I bought it really cheap, my investment has doubled since then so I have faith in holding and seeing out the lawsuit.

    Also, thanks :)

    Thats great! love to hear that... hope everyone is making money! Ripple has a huge marketcap for the price, could have a big upside long term once (if) they get passed their lawsuit.

    ACTUALLY as im typing this, they just said on Digital Asset News that Ripple just settle their suit with youtube. So there ya go! lol

    Love GRT. Lot of big partnerships across the blockchain, very solid project.

    CRO is what? The Crypto.com coin right? Do you use it in their environment, or are you just holding it in hopes it blows up like BNB did?

    I just signed up for this. Only have 380CRO tho, so i gotta get the 1% card 

    Gonna add the additional 20CRO i need so i can upgrade my card to the 2% one in 6mo.

    The 380CRO was free apparently when I signed up lol. Was 25$ when i signed up, now worth almost 100... man I love crypto xD

    ECOMI (OMI) is a great NFT play, and price is around 0.015 per.

    If anyone sees this in the next few days, could be a good grab prior to it getting listed on UniSwap in like 4 days. Id imagine that the price will steadily increase from that point on, but the company itself is already doing big things in the NFT space, which is the hot new thing so its very likely to see a pump.

    (this is not financial advice)

    Yeah, did not have all that much on XRP but still made about ~350€ on it when i sold yesterday. 

    Guess it pays for the wife's wedding anniversary gift and for dinner, so can't complain.
