I’ve Earned $124 in Crypto Over 5 Months
The last summary post I did of my time on Publish0x was on March 20th. As it is now August 15th, I thought it would be fun to update things and compile some data on my earnings as a writer on this platform.
If I can summarize things so far, I’d say, publish0x is the best crypto blogging platform by far. It absolutely blows away all competition, so long as you are writing about crypto. I have not tested this platform as a space for fiction, arts, political commentary, etc. But for how I’ve used it, which is mainly speculating and commenting on crypto stuff, it is absolutely the best. There is no question here.
So long as your content hits, and you can point to interesting points for discussion, publish0x is a far more reliable way to earn crypto than others, say, HIVE (or the crapshoot of Steemit). Whereas those platforms necessitate begging of the have-nots to the mega whales, Publixh0x is EQUAL. Tips are earned by writers and tippers. And writing is ALWAYS the more rewarded of the two.
I try to write at least twice a week. There were large gaps in this time period. Some articles hit better than others. Sometimes its easier to write than other days. But looking at my time put into writing vs the reward gotten out of it, I think it is certainly a fair trade. This isn’t day-job-quitting amounts of money, but $124 is nothing to gawk at!
The charts below tell the story. The largest amount of crypto I earned, and the most valuable, has been LRC. The second was DAI. Interestingly, despite ETH only recently being introduced, I earned more from ETH than I did with BAT throughout 5 months!
This is *NOT* earnings a week, but total earnings based on what day the article was published. The most profitable day to publish an article, according to my data set of 5 months publishing on this platform, is either Monday or later in the week, on Thursdays and Fridays.
The total breakdown of earnings after 5 months of publishing. I earned mostly LRC and DAI.
The X axis is the total rewards earned, and the Y axis is the number of views. As for views to earnings, as I pointed out before, so long as your post can garner above 1,000 views, or really 1,500 views, you will likely earn more than $1 on the post. You can see a clear cluster in earnings, tending to less than two dollars, corresponding to les than 1500 views. Anyything about that tends to be much higher.
The single outlier, of $5.17 for 258 views, was for a contest. This is an example of why its helpful to join in these publish0x writing contests!
I almost exclusively wrote about BTC, which was the first category option on the website. That has now changed to “News” and “DeFi”. I suspect that writing about those tags could garner many views, simply because they are the first options on the website. Still, BTC being what it is, I think it is a safe topic to write about.
As for tips per view,
Total Views: 69680
Total Earnings: $124.31
Earnings per view: 0.001784013
So each view earns, on average, $0.001, or less than a penny. Thus, it is ALL about earning as many potential views (and thus potential tips) as possible. Because, the rule it seems, is that each person using the site will maximize THEIR profit (80% for themselves) and minimize the writer’s profit (20% for the writer), despite the fact that the entire relationship of the blog and tipping DEPENDS on the content creators.
