I first began dabbling with cryptocurrency shortly after the Bitcoin (BTC) startup in 2010. No, I wasn’t brave enough to be in that first few hundred people that purchased BTC for a few cents. Once again, I sure wish I would have listened to my instincts. I did get into some BTC though when the price was under $200, but even at that price, I couldn’t afford much. Most of the BTC I purchased back then was used to fund my Coins.ph account where I could pay bills in the Philippines like phone loads, internet service, and cable TV service to be more precise. Over time, and depending on one’s location in the Philippines, you can now even use BTC (and other cryptos) to buy health insurance or pay your electric bill, among other things.
I ripped through much of my original BTC purchases back then paying for phone loads for me, the wife, and some nieces and nephews. Coins.ph just made it much easier to load everyone’s phone from my desktop rather than from any of the sari-sari stores in the village. I remember once sending a niece out for a load, only to have her come back an hour later because she had to search the village for a store that actually had a load to sell. I quickly tired of buying one, two, and three-day loads for multiple phones every day, and Coins.ph made my life much easier. Little did I realize then that those seemingly measly amounts of BTC I used for Globe and Smart loads back then (2013-2014), would be worth thousand$ today. Coins.ph today is the most popular Mobile Wallet & Digital Currency Exchange in the Philippines and is the most convenient mobile wallet for Filipinos to buy loads, make online payments, and trade digital currencies (approved and regulated by the Bangko Sentral Pilipinas or BSP). If you would like to know more about Coins.ph you can search this blog site for more info.
Locked Down with Nothing To Do?
Since the beginning of crypto time (circa 2010), I’ve fallen into the rabbit hole many times, always emerging with a little more knowledge than I had previously (although age now challenges me to remember it all). These days, I still dabble some in the crypto space and I still hold some BTC but have dumped all my other Altcoins except for some of the Crypto I’ve earned from my blogging efforts Steemit (STEEM) and Stishit (Stish).
Today, I am accumulating a relatively newer crypto referred to as LBRY Credits by way of a secure, open, and community-run digital content sharing and publishing platform that is decentralized and owned by its users. Introducing “Library TV” or LBRY. In addition, LRBY is also evolving as a marketplace where publishers can offer and users can pay for any designated content offered For Sale. LBRY does not take a cut of any transactions. When users purchase content on LBRY, 100% of the listed price goes to the publisher. There is also a micro-fee paid to the decentralized network of hosts that store and deliver the content to you.
“LBRY is a content sharing platform. If you have a film, a song, or an eBook, you can publish it and share it very cheaply on LBRY. If you’re looking for content, it’s so easy to find, your Grandma can do it.” ~ Mike Vine (MV), co-founder
LBRY is also like a YouTube for crypto users, which also makes learning about and using crypto easy and fun. On LBRY, I earn crypto by simply uploading content, watching content, sharing content or selling my photography or raw video. I also earn tips from other LBRY users. For those YouTube creators who cannot reach monetization levels because the bar has been set too high by YouTube, LBRY is a great place to earn from the start. And if you have already published YouTube content, LBRY has a YouTube Sync program that will sync all your videos with LBRY account. You can learn more about LBRY in-depth here.
I have never seen a blockchain-crypto-based platform that was this easy to earn with. It takes a little bit of time wallowing around to learn how it all works, but in less than two days’ time, you can be the master of your own domain. In the realm of learning about cryptocurrencies, the learning curve is shallow.
I know many Filipinos living in the Philippines that are getting more and more involved with crypto (because they can earn money). They exploded on the scene with Steemit.com and I expect to see many more discover LBRY soon. There are already a couple of Philippine expat YouTubers who have published content on LBRY. Right now, there are content creators from all over the world joining the LBRY platform. The big attraction of course is NO censorship and complete control and ownership of the content. Since I’ve joined, the price of an LBRY credit has increased by nearly 25%. During the month of April 2020, LBRY platform growth exploded by almost 250%.
