This post was inspired from the morning show on Lifefm a few weeks ago, I actually didn't hear it, the kids were sitting waiting in the car while I was getting ready, when getting in the car having kids yelling at you all excited they were talking about BITCOIN!
One trying to figure out were my phone was, bewildered what was going on trying to figure out from four kids wanting to have their say all at the same time.
Basically one of the morning Guys was chating about how he had been watching Bitcoin for a number of years but never brought any, and saying he would of made a bit of money if he had brought in when he first heard about it, to what the price was few weeks ago.
The one trying to find the phone was wanting to ring in to say he had a mother that was ab-succeed with Bitcoin - I don't always talk about Bitcoin come on there's 800+ other coins to talk about than just the one that started it right?.....
This convo got my wheels turning that there are other ways for people to get involved in Crypto than just sitting and watching from the sidelines that they may not know about, so this post is to share ideas that are they may wish to explore/research more into how they could move from the sidelines to the inside field without getting too deep in the information overload.
Why Do People Just Watch On The Sidelines
Not enough information
Not enough Central (Government Regulation)
You can't deny that there is risk, there is risk in everything from walking outside you don't know if your going to fall over, your still gonna go out side right? It's about lowering the risk so you watch out for broken concrete, things in your way where you want to get to etc.
You will have feelings of wish I got more or in lower or sold higher etc, you need to be happy with the decisions you make when you are doing it and accesses will I be happy if it goes higher or lower.
Throw out the word investment you are participating in projects, you have a choice if you want to be a community member of a project or not, you are the one responsible for finding out all the information that is available to make your best decision.
If you like government regulations you best not to participate in crypto currency projects as these are decentralized, there are some more centralized projects your best to look into those.
There are white papers to find out more information there is more information than there used to be, and is far more easier, with technology it gets easier and easier.
There are ways to be involved in Crypto without money so lets look into a few of these...
Are places you can go to collect coins from different projects by claiming coins every hour or how many hours/minutes have been set - faucets come and go as they run on people clicking ads so they can get more coins to put into the faucets when this doesn't happen they are no longer, they sometimes get coins from the coin devs also.
Bounties/AirdropsCoins Devs sometimes do Bounties for their project - if they need people to contribute for translations of whitepapers, or need design, whitepapers etc they will give coins for the project work they would like done. Airdrops are coins given out at certain time, where you may need to sign up and leave your email to receive information about the project updates to receive coins.
Selling/ServicesThere are many markets you can sell your products and services on for Bitcoin and sometimes you can choose the coins you would like to accept.
DiscordOn discord within some of the crypto community's they have build bots to rain down coins on those that are active in the community from time to time - one of these community's is ADSactly which you can join their
Discord and be able to access other crypto community's thru their discord to others that rain down coins from time to time also.
Social MediaThere are many projects that are including ways were you can be donated/tipped coins from writing posts, uploading videos, sharing content, commenting - one of these social sites is the one you are reading this post on now called Steemit.
There are many ways to dip your feet into crypto, hope this was helpful to find other ways of looking into cryptocurrency's. Are you still on the sidelines or have you dipped your toes into crypto, if so how did you tip your toes into crypto?
Thank you for stopping by have a Fabulous Day/Evening!
