Week 17 Update

By ikigai | Dimes, Dollars & Dreams | 15 Dec 2021

This is probably the lowest point in the whole journey so far. I started writing this almost a week ago, yet after seeing the crypto numbers, I shut this whole journey out of my mind. Seeing that it's almost about time to start writing the week 18 update, I finally pushed myself to do this. 

This is the week 17 update with the stats from 08-12-2021.

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 16
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:


Crypto in USD: ~$-444.09

(If I didn't count the BTC loss in, the total gain would be around $2.58, I'll use that with the weeks' calculation at the bottom of this post)


Crypto Breakdown: 

Ouch. My whole total has crashed so hard it's not even funny. There is a perfectly good explanation for this, which I'll try now to explain as well as I can. Rollercoin. There's the explanation. I had to buy the season pass as it was the last day before the season went by, and of course, BTC had to drop down then. I spent so much BTC which was in $ value less than it is now, so I didn't only lose the $480 the event pass was sold as, an additional $10 loss came from there if you check the BTC value now. Now, I didn't want to use my BTC (HODL FOR LIFE), but seeing that it still is the only crypto in my portfolio with enough balance to make such a huge single transaction, I had to, or I would've needed to resort to FIAT which is against the rules of this journey. I pulled the amount from Nexo, and the daily interest gain dropped from 145 sats to 40 sats. On a positive note though, Nexo really keeps its word about free withdrawals (1-5 per month depending on the loyalty level) because not a single sat was lost on transaction fees. I'm still mining BTC (well, technically ETH which gets converted to BTC in Nicehash). I'm hoping to make up for the huge loss of BTC with the lower than $50k price still by gathering BTC with all means possible and by considering the Rollercoin as an investment of sorts, which will likely pay itself back at some point during this journey. Out of last week's goals, I made it with 2/3 which isn't so bad. I always try to set up extra goals in case I end up having a relatively quiet week on the real-life work and am left with a bunch of time to dedicate to crypto, but it seems like there's a lot to be done just before Christmas celebrations and what else. 


This week's non-crypto earnings:
  • Arc.io: $4.396
  • BeerMoneyForum: $0.091
  • SerpClix:  $0.05
  • Usercrowd: $0.20
  • Challenge.gives: $1.2039
  • Earnapp: $1.36
Non-crypto = ~$7.30


Week 17 total earnings: ~$-436.79


I got a peculiar invite to an investment project that gives a free $300 package which will expire automatically in 24 business days (basically in a month if you take into account the weekends), and whatever profits come out of it are yours to claim. Taking into consideration that I have to do literally nothing, I signed up on the 5th of this month and whether it's legit or not, we'll see that next month. 

Crypto Idle Miner update:  I moved from Diamond league, div. 44 to div. 39. Another week, another small step ahead. 

Rollercoin update: Seeing that Rollercoin has free withdrawals on BTC & DOGE, those are the two currencies I'll split my power on. Right now it's DOGE week with 4x the distribution amount, so I got 80% of my power on that, which means I'm getting 0.02 DOGE every 10 minutes, as well as 2 BTC sats with the remaining 20%. Here's my mining room:



I did bother myself with making a Coinmarketcap account, to track the crypto side of things more 'accurately' if one wants to call it that. CMC doesn't have EXS, EXG, TXT or DUTCHY listed so that's why it's not entirely up to date in my eyes. Seeing that I'm kinda late with this post, here are the stats for 08-12 as that's when I should've taken the picture:


I should've taken the allocation pic as well, but seeing that it's entirely inaccurate due to me not taking the screenshot during that day, I'll skip it for now and post it for next week instead.


The next week's goals I want to set up are:
  • Earn 0.00030000 BTC
  • Reach 65 SPACE total


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$:


16% reached


With $10 a week, reaching $10k would take:
842 weeks or 16 years and 8 weeks
