Recent Life Changes Have Forced Me to Rethink My Crypto Earning Ways

By Cje95 | Chronic Illness and Crypto | 6 May 2022

For the longest time now I have continued to add new crypto earning ways while maintaining the ways I had already built up. Really it became my daily routine between interning and crypto I had a whole schedule set up and it has paid off handsomely! I was amazed when this even survived my move to Washington, D.C... I figured it would be shaken up but it turns out that was not the case for the first year and a half. One recent event though really really changed everything.


After living and interning for over a year in DC I finally landed a job. This was not just any job though it was on a committee which while more prestigious also means more hours, more work, and a different really set of electronics to use. 


I landed this job the first week of March and since then have done my best to maintain all of the different ways I earned crypto. Some have actually benefitted greatly from this change as I walk a mile to work and a mile back each day so my steps are booming! Earning ways like sMiles and Sweatcoin have been much much better than expected! Others though as much as I have tried to keep them going have really fallen off.


The biggest loser of this has been using the Brave Browser and earning BAT. I love Brave and have been amazed by the growth of the application. I first started using it not too long after it launched in 2019 if I am remembering correctly. Watching it grow and become the power that it is today is an amazing thing to look back at. If you do not use it I 110% recommend doing so as I have both friends and family using it because of its ease! 


This is where the job issue comes in though. With needing to use the technology that my work has provided to me I no longer am able to utilize the browser near as much. I went from earning 4+ BAT a month to this last month I earned a whooping 0.56 BAT. That is a huge decrease and not one I necessarily expected to have to deal with. Since BAT had partnered with Gemini I was able to take the BAT I earned and have it sent to my Gemini wallet. From there it was feeless to love it to the Gemini Earn part of the exchange where it would grow for me without me having to raise even a finger.


Now the APY is only 1.01% it is better than nothing and like I mentioned feeless so replacing it will be a lot harder than I would have hoped. I did have some hope for Sweatcoin as they finally move to the crypto space however one issue arises here. I live in the US and this means I cannot participate in the genesis where the number of Sweatcoin I have earned is converted into SWEAT the crypto token. Since the event has not happened yet I am still hopeful that I might be able to but so far US users are frozen out and I am unsure if we will be able to get the same benefits after the genesis event. 


While I plan on talking to the IT crew for my committee soon to try and pitch the idea of getting Brave to be approved.... I doubt it is something that I will be able to pull off. You never realize how much you will miss a feature until it is gone and boy has that hit me with Brave. Using Chrome I consistently accidentally close out the whole browser when I didn't mean to and unlike Brave when you do this there is no easy recovery!
