Hey Steemians! 👋

Want to earn some passive income from your crypto holdings?

As of this week, you can now lease your EOS (EOS) tokens to dapp developers on the EOS network via the EOS Resource Exchange (REX)! I've been leasing my tokens for a few days now... and it's kinda like renting a condo to a tenant, but without the taxes, maintenance, and hassle... so definitely check it out! 💸 😍

Also, if you're currently HODLing Zcash (ZEC) or thinking about scooping up some ZEC on the market, check out my latest Deep Dive on Zcash (ZEC)—this is one that you can't miss!
