Cryptocurrencie – The situation in Venezueal (Part 1)

I Venezuela har ett ekonomiskt kaos resulterat i att kryptovalutor blivit en del av vardagen. För José Lanz är microinkomster via kryptovalutor ett sätt att livnära sin familj. Vissa månader har inkomsten via krypto till och med varit större än hans 10USD/månadslön som lärare.

Detta är del 1 i intervjun med honom kring situationen i Venezuela – Del 2 kan läsas här.

Whats your name and where do you live?

José Lanz, (@lanzjoseg in all my networks) I am a professor at the Universidad de Oriente “UDO” and head of the Payroll Department of the same, happily married my wife is also a teacher, we have two beautiful daughters, I currently live in Venezuela a beautiful country with great natural and human resources but economic catastrophy.

How is the situation in your Country?

The situation in my country is terrible. The population lost their purchasing power, their purchasing capacity decreased considerably, directly affecting their health, food, housing, clothing and education due to a very serious hyperinflation that every hour is worse given that our official currency “El Bolivar”.

Although the government blocks all dollars, taking full control of them, here the black market prevails in a public and shameless manner where the washing of dollars is revealed through dirty businesses (stews).

Because with such low wages, the economy is declining every day, people are in a constant race to survive and try to work miracles with what they earn. The money we can earn is not enough to buy more than two basic food products.

Have the value of your currencie been more sustainable for the past?

No, the fluctuation of the dollar is unsustainable, one day one price, then in the morning one and in the other afternoon.

For example:

The dollar three days ago was at 19 thousand bolivars per dollar. Yesterday I was at 20 thousand bolivars per dollar. Today it is at 22 thousand bolivars per dollar that is the price of the black market.

Although the government also has its own rates dictated by the Central Bank of Venezuela that in some cases is well below the price of the black market and sometimes above.

How much do you earn?

A university professor earns by the order of 9 to 10 dollars monthly as salary that could vary according to the rate on the day you have to receive the salary. But I must clarify that nobody in the country is paid in dollars at least in the public sector, our entire economy is managed in the official currency (El Bolívar) although it is also measured in dollars and can be traded in dollars.

This is the situation for people in Venezuela. A economic situation that many of us in Sweden not can imagine. Can crypo be a part of the solution….Also read part 2 “Cryptocurence help him getting food for the day

Cryptocurrencie gives him food for the day 2/2

I Venezuela har ett ekonomiskt kaos resulterat i att kryptovalutor blivit en del av vardagen. För José Lanz är microinkomster via kryptovalutor ett sätt att livnära sin familj. Vissa månader har inkomsten via krypto till och med varit större än hans 10USD/månadslön som lärare. Detta är del 2 i intervjun med honom kring situationen i Venezuela – Del 1 kan läsas här.

When did you first get in contact with crypto? What keep you intresed in it?

 My first payment was 3 dollars, at that time the salary in Venezuela of a teacher was approximately 7 dollars…

I started at Steemit on 2017-12-29. Two weeks before that day a friend told me: “Lanz I met a page where you get paid for writing and reading

I was curious so I researched on the subject, then made the subscription with a little skepticism There is always the benefit of the doubt in me, it is not easy to believe that you can earn money as well as by writing and even more while living in Venezuela it can be difficult to really believe in that.

I decided to publish after 7 days to see my first payment of 3 dollars, at that time the salary in Venezuela of a teacher was approximately 7 dollars, my wife and I could not believe it, it was much more than what was earned in fifteen days as a salary at the university that was incredible

High payout because high BTC value

Of course one thing in favor was the price of the BTC at that time it was approximately in 20 thousand dollars that also boosted the price of STEEM.(Today is Steem 0,15 USD. In december 2017 about 5 USD)

One of the things that keeps me in steemit is that I do something that I like in fact I still don’t see it as a job, I have met many people in this medium Venezuelans and other countries too.

Helped to buy glasses

I do not deny that I am earning an income, this money that I manage to earn is a lot or it can be little helped me in difficult times.

For example, the month of November last year I took my daughters to the doctor for a few Headaches, then the ophthalmologist, the result was that they sent them glasses.The world fell on me, because those of us who live here in Venezuela know that some glasses are worth GOLD. But through work on Steemit I could buy them, I have a thousand similar stories, that’s why every penny counts to be able to survive in Venezuela.-

How is crypto used in your Country? Can you Buy food for it?

Currently one of the most used crypto in my country is the BTC.  To businesses, however, the use of the crypto Dash is growing and from this I am aware that in many shops in the capital of Venezuela it is accepted and you only need to have a smartphone.

I can comment that recently I read a story which indicates that only in Venezuela an amount above 300 thousand dollars has been handled by commercial exchange only with the steemit currency called STEEM, you can imagine that it was only with steem.

Do you get crypto in Some ways?

In Venezuela, all of us who are still here use these income platforms,

Yes, we do what we can to get some extra money.In Venezuela, all of us who are still here use these income platforms,I use Steemit and get STEEM and SBD and to obtain Bolívares quickly we use or

The form is easy, We transfer the Steem or the Sbd – they transfer the bolivars to our bank accounts, I have taken the calculations and one loses more than 30% in that exchange but I repeat in the middle of the need that urges us is the only thing we can do to be able to have cash to buy food,

What do you Think of crypto and future in your Country?

Despite the government, the future in my country is that it will be very promising for Venezuelans regarding cryptos unless the government tries to block the different pages of these platforms. I do not have an exact figure but I can say that we are very many who obtain resources in one way or another thanks to crypto and there are many platforms that lend themselves to that.

My life has changed thanks to that, and I know that I will be inside as long as necessary but I also wish that the situation in the country changes to improve the quality of life of Venezuelans. It is everyone’s wish.

Hon tjänar kryptovaluta på ”faucets”

Hur kan man tjäna kryptovaluta? Det finns en mängd vägar och i denna intervjuserie vill jag visa några. Detta genom intervjuer av personer från hela världen. I denna intervju får ni möta ”aiyumi” från Brasilien som gör faucets. Vad är det och hur mycket tjänar hon?

When did you start with crypto and why? In which country do you live?

I live in Brazil. I first heard of cryptocurrencies in 2013, when I came across an open source software project accepting donations in Bitcoin, but I didn’t pay much mind to crypto until 2017 when my country’s mainstream media began talking about the subject.

It was only then that I became really interested and began reading up on cryptos and following the news. Now, one of my dreams is to somehow earn an extra income in crypto and be able to use that to pay for products and services at normal stores (maybe through some of those crypto debit cards, though I’m not sure if there’s any here in Brazil yet).

You earn crypto with faucets. What is that? What do you do?

Faucets are websites that earn money from advertisements and share their earnings with users, as very small cryptocurrency payments. To get the free cryptocurrencies, users must solve a captcha on a page full of ads. Faucets pay very little, and no one should expect to be able to pay the bills using faucet earnings, but faucets may be a good way to introduce beginners to cryptocurrencies, to have them learn in practice the basics, like how to create a wallet and transfer crypto to it.

There are four faucet websites that I claim from more regularly, and three others that I use only occasionally because they’re very slow to load on my computer.

Sometimes I visit the websites either when I remember or want to take a short break from work, and other times I leave the browser with the websites open and go do my normal activities, and when I hear the websites’ sounds that indicate coins are available to claim again, I go there to quickly claim the crypto from each website, then go back to doing my things. If I am too busy, I claim from the faucets less often.

At the end of each week, I use a website called BlockTrades (which lets us easily trade one cryptocurrency for another) and trade what I earned from the faucets for STEEM (the cryptocurrency of the platform of the same name, from the social network). I use these small bucks to help grow my account on said social network. What I earn from participating there is also very little, so any extra earnings to improve the account already helps.

How much do you earn? How much time do you spend?

On average, I earn around 4,300 satoshi (0.00004300 BTC) in a week. Converted to US Dollars, it’s really little (something like 44 USD cents at the moment I’m writing this, with Bitcoin worth around 10,300 USD). For these minuscule gains, using faucets may seem like a waste of time, but for my purpose of complementing my earnings from the STEEM platform, which are currently also just pennies,

I think it’s valid. Actually, I’m earning more STEEM from the faucets than from posting at the social media, so, at least for me, it’s good enough for now. The STEEM price is currently very low, but I hope it will recover and rise eventually. If this happens, every penny I’ve accumulated over time both from posts and from faucets will have been worth it in the long run.

As for how much time I spend at the faucets, going through the four websites takes around two minutes in total (five minutes if I also include the three slower sites, so I don’t use them much). I hadn’t actually counted the total time I spend at the faucets per day, but I estimate around one hour and a half on the days when I have more time to claim from the faucets, and a bit less than an hour when I don’t have much time. This isn’t counting the delay minutes between claims, because I’m usually doing something else while I wait for the next claim time to come.

Do you think this is the best way to earn free crypto?

In theory, I think that a better way to earn crypto for free would be to take surveys. Even the faucet websites I use have a section listing surveys that pay more than 3,000 satoshi each. However, in practice, I was unable to take any survey so far. Most survey websites asked me to register and fill a form with personal information I wasn’t willing to give, and I gave up on those.

The websites which don’t need that had me spend half an hour answering lots of questions, and in the end I didn’t qualify for any survey. I know that the faucet earnings aren’t the best, but at least I’m consistently earning something. Other people may have better luck with surveys depending on the country where they live or some other factor, but in my case taking surveys didn’t work out, and I gave up for the moment. I might try again some other day when I have more patience.

Han tjänar krypto på att spela kort (Steemmonsters)

I min serie kring personer som tjänar pengar på kryptorelaterade produkter/tjänster har jag nu kommit till min vän ”Guurry123” som spelar Steemmonsters varje dag. Mest för att det är kul – men även för att tjäna pengar. 
1. You earn cryptocurrencie buy playing a card game. Whats the name of the game and short – how to play it?
I play a cardgame named Steemmonsters. I live to play as it’s a fun game and you earn also. Playing itself is learning.
It is a cardgame where you choose which monstercards that should battle against your opponents. You need to place the card in sequence and let them fight again other player.
As you play you go into more depth of abilities each card/monster has.
2. Can anybody join ? Do I need to pay some startfee?
You need a steem account and a starter kit (approx 10 USD) to play. If you don’t have nither account or starter pack then go on there official discord server you will get free promo code to create a account along with starter deck (free account)
3. How much do you play? How much do you earn?
I usually play from 2-3 hours a day. Weekend may be more then that. On average I earn 500 DEC per day equivalent to 0.5 USD. But I also win card that I can sell or use to upgrade my deck. I have choosen to only upgrade. If I get to higher levels I will earn more DEC and also win more cards.
4. Is this a good way of earning money or is it mostly a fun game to play?
It’s a fun game and you can earn also. If you want a big earning then you need big investment (to level up your cards)
5. How do you earn money?
There are many ways to make money out of the game. You earn DEC from every battle you won, which can be trade for steem. The reward cards you got fro completing your daily quest and from season end reward can also be trade in market. They have a bot where you can exchange the DEC for a good upvote on your steemit posts.

Hon lever på kryptovaluta

Det finns mängder av vägar att gå för att tjäna kryptovaluta. En som verkligen lyckats är en vän på blogportalen Steemit som idag ställer upp på en intervju. Fler intervjuer kommer framöver på temat ”Hur tjänar du krypto?”

When did you first get started with crypto? Why?

I started in June 2017. This was due to many friends already blogging on the STEEM blockchain and begging me to jion. When one of those people invested 60K of his own money to start here, this made me jump. He wanted to be a “big fish” at the start. All of the other people I knew here were only getting paid for content.

2. Have that changed your way of living or is it just a hobby?

This is my way of living. As a natural weight loss success story, I have been writing, publishing books, shooting videos, and blogging on the topic since 2011. Coming to STEEM means 90% of my effort goes here. Due to the intricacies of blogging here, I now also post minnow tips to help others succeed on STEEM in addition to my weight loss work.


3. How do you earn crypto today?

I blog on STEEM and get upvotes on my posts that turn into their two coins, STEEM/SBD. I have focused my effort to ensure what I do earns revenue. There are many opportunities for that as well as many ways to post all day and earn nothing.

4. How much do you get in a month?

Approximately 90% of the money I live on comes to me monthly from STEEM. I have a very inexpensive lifestyle in SE Asia. The amount I earn depends upon crypto prices in general and STEEM/SBD prices in particular. $500 USD is what I look for each month and normally I make it.

5. If someone wants to start earn crypto – what is a good first step?

Start blogging on STEEM! Even if you are not a blogger, a daily post of 100-300 words with one photo is enough. Then connect with others who can teach you about other crypto coins. I earn about 30 different coins now with various methods, and all are due to STEEM and skills and knowledge I learned here. Some of the other coins help pay my way; most don’t. But you never know the future and I am so glad to be in this game.
