Week 16 Update

By ikigai | Dimes, Dollars & Dreams | 5 Dec 2021

The crypto market feels icy cold this week. No matter though, it's the perfect time to mine BTC, and that thought is what keeps me motivated to go through the bearish season, it is winter after all. What we need to remember is, keeping optimistic is a certain way to beat the bear market pessimism. 

This is the week 16 update with the stats from 01-12-2021.

You can find previous weeks here:
Week 1     Week 7     Week 13
Week 2     Week 8     Week 14
Week 3     Week 9     Week 15
Week 4     Week 10     
Week 5     Week 11     
Week 6     Week 12     

You can find my earning plan from the week 1-7 posts, I don't want to keep copying the same text over and over again.

This week's crypto earnings:

week 16 stats

Crypto in USD: ~$21.88


Crypto Breakdown: 

Well, I changed my mind mid-week. I said I would run my mining on TRX for upcoming weeks but then BTC took a dive and I had to switch to that, at least for a little bit. I want to reap the benefits once it pops up again, so this is the perfect time to take advantage of the less than $50k price. Because of the huge price drop, my whole portfolio is down multiple 100s, but I know it'll bounce back and once it does, I'm waiting for some nice returns. I need to work hard on crypto while this lasts, so I can wake up to a lovely surprise in a few months. Last week, I sold my SOL as I said I would get rid of it at the end of last month. Honestly, I'm not so hyped about this month mostly because Final autofaucet is having SHIB as the coin of the month. Of course I'll be claiming it until the end of the month, maybe I'll have enough to put it to staking in the end or if not, I'll just sell it off. I'm not a SHIB fan, in fact, I can't understand why it got so popular recently anyway. Maybe that's just me, but I think it's a quite useless coin to begin with so I don't think of it too positively. Maybe this month will give me another view on it or something nice. I cashed out that awesome BFG birthday box, but they ended up having a black friday box for 70 BFG with 100% return in 30 days, so of course I ended up buying it immediately with the balance I gained. I ended up getting my FUN savings on my balance and put it back behind bars, this time for 90 days with 15% APY so we'll see the next increase at the end of February 2022. I failed pretty hard on my last week's goals, but I was unexpectedly busy with work so no can do. 

  • Also, I moved TRX & RDD balances to staking on ExpressCrypto and will have a few frozen days of no rewards with both in next week's stats. (My monthly staking day is the 1st on EC!)
    • TRX daily reward grew from 0.14176027 TRX to 0.22534246 TRX
    • RDD daily reward grew from 0.57424657 RDD to 0.60273972 RDD

Here's my current rates for SHIB claim in Final autofaucet, because why not:



This week's non-crypto earnings:
  • Arc.io: $3.581
  • BeerMoneyForum: $0.055
  • SerpClix:  $0.4
  • Challenge.gives: $1.4049
  • Earnapp: $4.04
Non-crypto = ~$9.48


Week 16 total earnings: ~$31.36


They increased the Beermoneyforum daily login reward chance to 20 points (0.02$) which is pretty awesome, previously the maximum you could get was 10 points. Earnapp keeps on giving, though they halved the rate on 1st Dec, from $1 per GB to $0.50 per GB in my country, which is still pretty impressive though, just a thing to note. Below is a pic of the announced rates for anyone curious:


I haven't gotten any new tasks on Usercrowd, I wonder what's up with that. Also, I have somewhat good news with Ai.Marketing, it seems like they're getting everything together, and withdraws should be available in a few short weeks (if not even earlier), and I'm actually quite excited about that too.   

Crypto Idle Miner update:  I moved from Diamond league, div. 50 to div. 44. The growth is small but quite steady, I can already see the Champions league ahead of me!

Rollercoin update: At the time of the writing, there are 2 days left, give or take. So far, I haven't included my RLT or BTC balances into my total numbers, but as my mining speed went through the roof due to the event pass purchase, from next week onwards I think I really should. I started keeping track of the price of the pass around week 12 when it cost $679.99 and ended up buying it at this price in the end:

RLT final

So I was able to shave off $200, just by playing! That feels pretty good ngl. 


The next week's goals I want to set up are:
  • Focus on BTC
  • Reach 55 SPACE total
  • Earn 13 TRX


The long-term goals I have:
  • Reach 0.20 BTC (for $1.35 daily staking reward)
  • Reach 1 LTC (because I want to have it, mainly collected from faucets & saving rewards)
  • Reach 4600 RDD (for 2 RDD daily reward)
  • Reach 5215 TRX (for 1 TRX daily reward)
  • Reach 100 SPACE (for 150% APY)
  • Reach 100 mil DUTCHY (for 25% APY)
  • Reach 2500 FUN (for some extra rewards on Freebitco.in)
  • Reach 1500 BFG (for $0.10 daily reward)


Progress to 10 000$:


21% reached


With $30 a week, reaching $10k would take:
265 weeks or 5 years and 5 weeks

I've been asked to make a post where I list all the sites I use, and I do believe that's a nice idea. I'll try to get that done before next week's post.

Once again, a big thank you for reading this week's update, I hope to see you next week~
