Besides staking on COTI mainnet there is an option to buy staking rights on KuCoin as well
For Staking COTI there are several options, but the demand outweighs the supply.
Staking in COTI main net
For the staking 2.0 in COTI mainnet in May, the amount of applied COTI was 5 times higher than the available Staking positions. In my view there are two reasons for that;
COTI has a solid use case with high potential, therefore there are a lot of people holding the token, while looking for future value increase, with no intent to sell quickly. If that is the case, it is better to let the token work for you and generate more revenue.
The staking returns are best in class.
Staking on KuCoin
Besides staking on COTI mainnet there is the option to stake on KuCoin as well. In total another 10 Million COTI can be staked here on top of the 40 Million on COTI main net. With a current circulating supply of close to 500 Million, this means 10% of that can be staked over the two solutions combined.
On KuCoin you cans stake 5 Million COTI with a 30 days term for 18% annualized return and 5 Million COTI with a 90 days term for 25% annualized return. However both staking options where filled up in minutes.
There is the interesting option though to trade Staking Rights on Kucoin. When you stake COTI (or any other token) on KuCoin besides COTI, you receive POL tokens as well.
On top of the 25% annualized return on COTI, you will earn an additional 24.45% annualized (changing in time) return on Pol. The staking results both in Pol and COTI are paid daily.
If you are staking COTI currently you can decide to sell your staking rights in exchange for POL through the trade option. If you didn’t have the chance to stake, you can actually buy staking rights through the trade option:
So it shows here that you can actually buy the rights to stake 2,203.4 COTI for the price of 66.76 POL. The 90 days staking contract still has 67 days to go (May 19). So based on that you can calculate if the investment of 66.76 POL for staking rights makes sense.
If you think it makes sense: Cost < Return on COTI and POL combined, you buy the right of staking and automatically 2,203.4 COTI in your KuCoin wallet will be locked and you will earn daily rewards for staking until the 90 days contract is finished.
After making a small successful trial yesterday, I will be looking to increase the staking position on KuCoin gradually.
Regular update on the progress of the portfolio of Passive Income generating tokens held.
Time for a new update on the passive income goal for 2020.
Due to the positive results of staking of BTT on DLive I have increased the target of the amount of BTT to hold by the end of the year. This is actually the third token out of the 6 passive income generators for which that decision has been taken. And as the value of crypto is still low, it is still cheap to further build the position in all of them.
Although the target is kept the same, CITYUPTAKE is still going strong and besides buying more CITYUPTAKE the rewards received are used to increase the stack of BTT and Pi-token in the last couple of weeks.
As CITYUPTAKE accounts for the biggest portion of my passive income generating tokens, it is bringing the biggest income impact as well. Although with the heavy push on other tokens, that portion has been decreased from 49.3% a couple of weeks ago to 48.5% currently:
$COTI, $BTT and $Pi token have increased their share, while $CITYUPTAKE and $WINk didn’t increase quick enough to maintain their proportional share. All in all a good foundation has been set for future income generation to support the #111Months project.
A new month a new CITYUPDATE. Please see above the monthly newsletter of CITYUPTAKE.
April was a very successful month with regards to the growth of the amount of CITYUPTAKE tokens in circulation. Apparently consistent solid are becoming more popular nowadays. It is good to be part of a project that turns market volatility into rewards for its token holders..
With the ending of the 16th months of the 111 Months challenge, it is time for a new recap. While the end of month 15 was a drop back due to the value drop of Crypto and the general impact of the COVID19 on the market, April shows the month of recovery.
Having significantly increased my holdings of CITYUPTAKE, CITY Alpha & Pi Token, I have been building further on solid increase of passive income, this doesn’t show yet due to the low value of crypto still in the majority of April.
Besides that being appointed Community Node for COTI, allows a significantly higher amount to be staked and also the start of staking BTT in Dlive brings some great expectations for the future.
So with all the above, there is great trust that soon we will reach a passive income equal of 15% or more of the final goal.
A great recovery of Crypto values and a decent recovery of share values has boosted the wealth. On top of that a considerable investment was done in COTI to fill up the granted staking slots, which resulted in some everyday cost cutting but resulted in a nice wealth boost.
Due to COVID actions, salary was temporay cut, but also loan repayments were stalled by the government. This kept the monthly spendable income on par, but the result was that loans are not being re-payed, slowing down the decreasing of the loans as part of the financial overview.
To further balance the wealth portfolio, I have also started stocking up precious metals like gold and silver, to have create an easy to liquidate portion of my wealth with a stable value.
