Road to 10k$ - Week 1 Update

By ikigai | Dimes, Dollars & Dreams | 26 Aug 2021

Recently, I decided that I'd get to 10 000$ in 24 months from online sources only. While I made my decision early this month, I only wrote down the 'starting' point on 11-08-2021. This is finally the week 1 update I spoke of before, with the stats from 18-08-2021. My main focus is on crypto since it's easier to get, but I won't turn down a good non-crypto chance if I see one.

I admit, I have a hard time getting things done as planned, so this journey is also my attempt to follow through and regularly post updates. Once I become a millionaire, it'll be fun to come back and see where I started too. I joke, but anyway... I feel like writing the week's starting and final amount + total increases of each currency makes the most sense but do let me know if it gets confusing. 

My earning plan: 
  • Faucets
  • Staking/saving interest
  • PTC
  • Mining (with my own PC & with cloud mining)
  • Sharing unused data
  • Games
    ...and whatever else I find along the way. 


This week's crypto earnings:

I think the easiest way to approach this is by listing all the coins, and so that this post won't be too long, I've collected all the numbers to the sheet below. 

Week 1

Crypto in USD: ~$29.98

As is apparent, this week I wanted to grow my FUN, but RDD, KMD, FEY & TRX are lately always on the back of my mind too. I pushed BNB to the side for now, but maybe I'll get back to it once it becomes more interesting to me. I get bored very easily of grinding 1 currency, that's why I have so many. This also allows me to switch collecting different currencies as often as I want to and makes it more entertaining to me.


This week's non-crypto earnings:
  • $3.76
  • BeerMoneyForum: $0.07
  • IProyal pawns: $1.21
  • Honeygain: $0.26
Non-crypto = $5.30


Week 1 total earnings: ~$35.28


Hmm, it's definitely not enough to get to that 10k$ in time, but it's a nice start. I'm still in the early stages of my plan and haven't really mastered everything yet, so I'm happy with this for now.

I'm surprised that I've actually spent time thinking of what to write here, I've never been a good writer and never had a true passion for it before. I do love handwriting though, even in this era I still have a notebook to scribble on. I'm really excited about some things that I've been planning lately, I just need to get my brain organized before throwing everything on the table. Now, I'll write the week 2 update so we get that out of the way too.


Thanks for reading! If you're interested in seeing how this ends, I'd be more than happy to have you on board. Till the next one!
