This is in no way investment advice
A funny thing happened to me last night.
Not funny in a "Funny how? Am I a clown? Do I amuse you,way? " But rather more in a "funny how that works" sort of way.
Let me explain. I've been around Steemit and Steem off and on for a few months. I started with one account and proceeded to lose my keys (Life lesson there) Started a second one, made some posts and comments and whatnot. I even gained a tiny amount of SBD/SP. Nothing worth mentioning.
Then I found CTP or https://clicktrackprofit.com/v2/athomewithcraig again.
Voila! a new steem account was born. I've covered CTP in other posts so, I won't rehash old stuff. You can look for those at your leisure. Now there are a few parts to this tale. I will keep them as simple as I can and I will tell you how I made money without spending a dime of my own.
First and foremost, be active here. Show up every day. I cannot emphasize this enough. Upvote and comment on everything you find of interest. Watch your voting power though. What's that, you may be asking? This explains it far better than I can. https://steemit.com/steemit/@capitalpink/voting-power-and-steem-power-explained. Thanks, @capitalpink ! Make yourself familiar with Steem-engine.com. It s the backbone for tracking any tokens you have earned or been given for free from a tribe.
Stake stake stake and then stake some more. You can trade tokens for Steem. Once you have that, you can "buy" other tokens to stake or hold and trade as the price goes up. In all fairness (this is the blockchain after all and transparency rules) I was dropped my first amount of CTP tokens. I immediately staked the entire amount. As more people started showing up and posting, you guessed it, I went out and upvoted. Not just the posts but comments I agreed with as well. See, that is one of the beautiful things here. I got ctp for posting, for voting and votes on my comments as well. I pretty much stake every token I get. Not only that, I got steem at the same time, and with that, I bought more ctp tokens.
When they brought out the CTPM or miner, I traded in some ctp tokens and bought some as well.
So far, I haven't spent a dime of my own. I did, however, pay with some ETH and LTC I had. But, you said you didn't spend a dime. That's right, I didn't. It was all free crypto to me. Here's how. Coinbase, which is a popular crypto wallet and trading site and they are offering free crypto for watching some training videos. This is one https://coinbase.com/earn/eos/invite/6fsw18qt
Spend an average of 10 minutes and get free coins. Once you have them, do what you want with them. Trade them for BTC or LTC or cash them out to your bank account. Still free, right?
Now, my very favorite part, the payout. I've mentioned a lot of things, staking, trading, etc. I took some of that Steemp I accrued and withdrew it. Not a crazy amount, I'm in this for the long haul. I took out about 5.00 adjusted for market fluctuations. That was about 25 Steem. You may get more or less depending on prices.
The thing is, I earned for doing things I'd be doing anyway. Facebook or twitter has never paid me a cent in a combined 12 years of both. Why not do those things on CTPTALK? There are apps that look and feel just like IG does for your phone. I use the one from @Appics. It's new and has some issues. Part of the magic of being an early adopter, I suppose.
Look, even if you never do the coinbase/crypto angle. Stick with this and you will still earn, just a little bit slower.
