One of the things you have to keep in mind when it comes to earning Bitcoin is that there is no way to get rich quick with digital currency. No matter how you want to look at it, Bitcoin is a form of money, and getting a lot of money, through legal means, by not investing any funds into doing so, is not easy and, initally, can prove to be rather tedious. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get started right now!
Doing Microjobs & Tasks For Others
Obtaining Bitcoins, or pieces of a Bitcoin in the early stages, should be compared to applying for a job on a freelance basis. There are multiple ways to get the funds you are after, and there are always people who need a certain someone with certain skills to complete a job or task they cannot [or don’t want to] do themselves.
The most common microjobs and tasks come in the form of programming programs, tools or bots. If you have any coding knowledge – preferably in the field of Java, C++ or Ruby – there will be more jobs than you can count. Bitcoin technology offers a lot of opportunities, and there is still huge potential to be unlocked in the years to come.
Bitcoin services are very competitive, and, even given the fact this technology is in its very early stages, there is plenty of room for competition. Decentralization is one of the main aspects of digital currency and its technology and, as such, we need multiple services operating in the same space. For example, look at the sheer number of different Bitcoin wallets out there and consider there are many more to come in the next few years.
But not everything revolves around coding – fortunately for us – as many people are also looking for translation services. With so many different platforms and alternate digital currencies launching on a regular basis, they all want to cater to as many people as possible. As a result, there is a lot of translation work to be done in regards to announcement threads, web pages and even whitepapers.
If you have ever found the need – or privilege, depending on how you look at it – of investing time into learning about Bitcoin and its technology, you can put that knowledge to good use by writing Bitcoin-related articles for various crypto news sites. Most of these websites will pay you on a freelance basis which means you get paid a fixed sum per article. Depending on which website you write for this amount can range anywhere from US$5 to US$30 and more.
Last but not least, graphic designers seem to be in short supply in the world of Bitcoin. You will find people looking to get a logo designed, or a coin symbol, or sometimes even a physical coin in exchange for Bitcoin. If you have photoshop/indesign skills – and perhaps a portfolio to show off some of your previous work – there are plenty of opportunities ahead.
In addition to that, there are still the traditional ways of building your own online business. At certain times, you will find people willing to pay for something they cannot buy themselves – due to payment or geographical restrictions – and they will even offer a small premium to get the item fast. Always be wary of these kind of deals though, as you never know their actual reason for enlisting you.
