My thought on diversifying into COTI
#blockchain #COTI @CITYUPTAKE #Node
In the continuous quest for rewarding projects, I stumbled up $COTI when they were competing for a spot in the Binance listing.
COTI (Currency of the Internet) is a crypto-currency with a very small market cap at this moment but with a lot of potential. The intent is to be a currency on the internet or brick and mortar stores, with the potential for merchants to create their own currency on the COTI platform or to create their own loyalty program.
The transactions go through nodes who are operated by holders of the $COTI coin. For running a node, you need to stake at least 100k $COTI and for an advanced node, you will need to stake 250k $COTI. The expected returns on an advanced node is considerably higher than on a regular node.
If you don’t posses enough $COTI to run a node, you can stake some (5 or 10k) through a community node.
The thorough KYC process one has to go through to be able to open a wallet, creates trust and shows this is a project which takes the future compliance needs serious, just like CITYUPTAKE on the TRON blockchain.
With a market cap below 2 Million USD at the moment, this seems to be a safe project to invest in, as the progress is great.
Therefore since I have found out about $COTI I have been using half of my weekly $CITYUPTAKE rewards to build a stack of $COTI coins with the plan to have my node running in the first quarter of 2020.
11 months have passed from the #111Months challenge. Time for a review #passiveincome #ada #cardano #TRON #earlyretirement
Summary of the 11th month of the 111 month challenge.
100 Month to go..
11 Month have passed, 100 more to go. What started as a general idea to retire at the age of 55, slowly transformed in a real plan with the following elements worked out
Defined a target crypto portfolio;
Established 2 participations, generating work and income after retirement;
Started to work on community involvement;
Defined a roadmap with milestones to reach the final goal.
Both passive income and liquid wealth targets are ahead of schedule, although wealth didn’t show a significant growth.
My position in all passive income generating entities is continuously increasing. Both in Crypto: CITYUPTAKE, CITY Alpha, WINk and in conventional shares: Unicum, AbbVie and Altria.
CITYUPTAKE has initiated being KYC and Tax compliant, which decreased the paid out amount of income but prevents future offsetting through local taxation. As the amount of CITYUPTAKE held increased, also the weekly rewards are increasing. CITY Alpha delivered a record return, which offset the low value of $TRX completely. Returns in WINk are low, but accumulation is ongoing for future rewards.
The trading profits in shares have been used to increase the position in AbbVie and Altria.
With all of this, passive income is now at 11% of the final target, supporting a quicker accumulation, creating a boomerang effect.
Staking in Cardano (ADA) will start delivering some additional regular rewards
Loans still make up 39% of total wealth and are continuously decreasing. In 4 months time one of the mortgages will expire, which will create additional free income, to speed up repayments of debt for the future
Again during the month of November two stock flips could happen creating profit too increase the hold of AbbVie and Altria.
A position of more than 30k $ADA was build up to be ready for testnet and participate in the Cardano staking which will start in the first half of December. After snapshot a part was converted into CITYUPTAKE to increase weekly rewards.
When $BTC was at a level of $7200, the size of the $BTC bag was increased as well. Besides that daily 0.0025 BTC is purchased to build a strong position.
For the near future, $BTT is cheap and accumulation will be expedited also $ADA will be in focus to build up again as I have high expectation on $ADA performance in the second half of 2020. Also BTFS will do some magic for $BTT.
Once all targets below are achieved, focus will shift from Crypto to regular stock market, but before doing so a major correction of stock market has to happen first.
When setting up the #111Months challenge to enable my early retirement, I have set up some target hold levels for Cryptocurrencies. However as time progresses new insights occur.
Where I originally started my crypto travel with $NANO and I still believe in this coin, my focus in time has shifted to TRON and with the current progress in Cardano also $ADA which was there in the beginning is back on my radar.
The graph below shows the 5 years targets, which I set for different coins by the beginning of this year.
As is visible here, I already modified the target for $XRP as I sold out a significant portion. Also visible is that $TRX already achieved the target and $ADA is getting very close.
The amount of $BTT and $BTC is climbing slowly but steadily by daily stacking and their target levels seem realistic.
All other coins for which there is a target are currently on the back burner and they will receive the proper focus when there is budget left after reaching the desired purchases for the ones in focus.
To the above clear, I have modified the targets for $TRX and $ADA significantly:
After an inspiring week, where the innovation center of one of our biggest customers was visited, where CITYUPTAKE is really stepping up the plate concerning compliance with SEC requirements and where Cardano is getting closer to the implementation of staking, I had a lot of inspiration to think about the future and the roadmap of Carpathian-Basin.
This resulted in updating the vision & goals section of the Carpathian-Basin website, and also in creating a first shot at a roadmap for the #111Month challenge.
My blogpost on Carpathian Basin explaining the crypto portfolio
My Crypto portfolio showcases the various crypto projects in which I am invested and in which I see the potential for wealth increase in the future.
The Blockchains I am invested in are the following:
For Crypto progress I am tracking the value of the following chains in details: TRX, XRP, BTT, NANO, ADA. The other projects’ bag is still to insignificant to be tracked in detail.
The portfolio profitability shows how much the value of the total hold of the coin is versus the money invested in the coin. It is visible that with the current values (November 4, 2019) only $TRX is in profit, while $BTT is not too far off. $NANO, which was the first Crypto I bought in March 2018, still has a far road to travel.
The graph above shows the value of the tracked Crypto portfolio (blue) versus the invested amount of USD (orange) and the resulting profitability of the portfolio (Red). Due to the fact that the vast majority of my crypto hold is TRX and that is the only coin in profitable status, the whole portfolio is profitable.
Within TRON blockchain, I have invested in several projects bringing passive income. The majority of the passive income is coming from CITYUPTAKE and WINK.
The daily passive income is continuously growing to a level of close to 20 USD per day. The average daily TRX rewards are close to 900 $TRX per day. This passive income is a key element on the #111Month challenge
Summary of the 10th months of the 111 months challenge
Due to the fact that the majority of the passive income is coming from the CITYUPTAKE returns, which value is directly connected with the value of $TRX, the passive income has decreased in October compared to September. First passive income was received from the Stock Holdings as well.
WINk and BOOM have become good passive income providers on the TRON blockchain as well and the revenues are used to increase the hold in WINk for long term income.
The amount of money in outstanding loans has decreased significantly versus the total amount of wealth and is now standing at 39% of wealth.
The Fitbit stock was sold with a 35% profit and part of that was used to increase the stake in passive dividend paying stock Altria and a portion was used to buy another speculative stock PG&E which had a recent big drop.
Tron recovered slightly and the vibe is very good with the cooperation with Samsung. This bodes well for the vast majority of my crypto holdings. BTC I keep stacking continuously by adding 0,0003 BTC to my stack each day independent of the price. CITYUPTAKE is giving me through its rewards at least 3k TRX tokens per week, which is slowly increasing the stack.
And as Cardano is getting closer to the possibility of staking and the Shelley net is to be launched soon, this is the next Crypto on which I will focus to build the stack.
