Week 4 Update

By ikigai | Dimes, Dollars & Dreams | 9 Sep 2021

Last month, I decided that I'd get to 10 000$ in 24 months from online sources only. While I made my decision in early August, I only wrote down the 'starting' point on 11-08-2021. 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.

This is the week 4 update with the stats from 08-09-2021.
You can find previous weeks here:

Week 3

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

week 4 stats

Crypto in USD: ~$16.64


Crypto Breakdown:

This week I lost 0.00030000 BTC (~$13,85!) just in transaction fees. I almost never move my coins around, but I had quite some BTC on my cloud mining account in Ecos.am (ref link here), which I wanted to move to Freebitco.in (ref link here) to get some interest on it. Well, despite the fees, I wanted to get that BTC to work for me, so it was something I had to do either now or later anyway, so I figured better get it out of the way and increase my daily return now, rather than sometime in the future. With my calculations, I should get that 30k sat back in Ecos in less than a few weeks so it's not world-shattering, but I'd rather have kept that amount regardless. As I mentioned last week, some of my daily login streaks went to 0 due to the trip, which shows in the total. TRX is going strong, this week we passed $0.10 again after such a long time, so that's something to enjoy I suppose, but my TRX & RDD were frozen for a few days so I didn't get interest on them until after the 3rd of the month. My FEY is sitting on Faucetpay, gaining some interest in pooled staking (currently with 91% APY), so I haven't manually added on to the amount for now. 


This week's non-crypto earnings:
  • Arc.io: $6.25
  • BeerMoneyForum: $0.044
  • IProyal pawns: $1.07
  • Honeygain: $0.14
  • Ai.Marketing: $23.42
Non-crypto = $30.924


Week 4 total earnings: ~$47.56


Were it not for the BTC transaction fees, this could've been a $50 week for the first time on my journey. Maybe next week I suppose. This week the non-crypto side really pulled through beautifully and I'm so glad about that. I also realized while writing this, I forgot to cash out on a few faucet-like sites which would've added on to the crypto side some more, but I'll add those to next week's numbers, so I'm hoping next week I'll get past the $50 mark. I completed all the last week's goals; reached not 4, but actually 5 KMD, TRX is way past 300 (even past 350) & both Rollercoin and Idle Crypto Miner are advancing. 


The next week's goals I want to set up are:
  • Continue playing Rollercoin - I just finished level 9 so I got the free power upgrade for 7 days. I want to get to level 17 before the season pass ends, then I may consider buying the pass to get all the miners I've already 'collected' along the way (and get +607.000 GH/s speed)
  • Get to top 100 divisions on the Platinum league on Idle Crypto Miner - I got to the top of the leaderboard on my previous division (Platinum, div. 367), got 287 HORA or ~0.03$, and moved up to Platinum, div. 149. Now I'm ranked 1st on this division, expecting another 280 HORA in 4 days. For anyone who wants to know, I've played this game for 2~ish weeks now, I'm level 6 and got to the Platinum division on 01-09. 
  • Reach 500 TRX total
  • Get to 0.026 BTC - to recover the lost amount


The long term goals I have (which I don't recall bringing up before):
  • Reach 0.25 BTC (for $1.25 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 30% APY)
  • Reach 2500 FUN (for some extra rewards on Freebitco.in)

All goals are counted with today's (09-09-2021) crypto values, which may be adjusted if the cryptos' values change a lot. Basically, for now, the bigger picture here is to get to $50 a month from just staking/saving interest without investing more than the 550$ I spent at the beginning of this year. 


Progress to 10 000$:


18% reached (BTC value dropped a lot so it impacted the total)
