I want people to realize the potential of monetizing your content with blockchain technology. But just how much crypto can one potentially earn on an average month? I went and calculated my earnings over the last 30 days and would like to share the results.
Steem – 281 Steem power & Steem – $35.23 USD at current value of $0.12
LBRY – 6,500 LBC - $49.90 USD at current value of $0.007
Minds – 44.65 minds tokens - $1.87 USD at current value of $0.042
Brave Creators and Ad Rewards – 69.787 BAT tokens - $16.88 USD at current value of $0.24
Publish0x – 2,739 HYDRO, 1.71 DAI, 144.21 BAT – 38.17 USD at various values
Uptrennd – 580 1UP points - $3.35 USD at current value of $0.0057
That is a total of $140.40 USD. That is good for just sharing my posts and creating the content I like for a monthly earning that covers my cell phone bill and my share of the utility bill.
However, I am not spending this. I am waiting for the Bitcoin halving to see everything shoot up in value and then I will decide if I want to sell some of this off.
I’ve made more and I’ve made less in one month, but the point stands that you can make a decent amount of money even if you aren’t some big influencer. On YouTube, I only have 460 subscribers and I make nothing. With these platforms, I can monetize what little influence I am able to earn a profit and motivate me to keep going.
I used to boast that Steem was the most profitable, but now at its current value it seems to be very similar to Publish0x and with Publish0x, I have found that it is much easier to earn a consistent amount without needing to be curated or get “whale votes” like you might need to do on Steem to earn.
There are lots of ways to earn crypto rewards and monetize your content and I am happy to explore them and learn more about them every day. If you know of any great platforms like these, please share them in the comments below!
How will legacy platforms compete with these? How well are you doing on crypto-monetized platforms versus legacy platforms? What’s your favorite platform?
