Passive income boost

After one and a half months into 2020 the building of a passive income powerhouse is on track

The first half of February 2020 has been a great month in crypto due to the mini Alt coin run. End of January beginning of February, I made a bigger purchase in $COTI to get closer to my goal. Also I have been steadily purchasing $CITYUPTAKE and the growth in my held amount is in line with the target. $ADA and $WINk stagnated but will be caught up later.

Passive income status Feb 17, 2020

The rewards from WINk have been extremely disappointing recently but maybe the new project which will be launched on the platform will inject some new life. As I don’t expect $ADA to run away in value from $TRX, I am not in a hurry to increase my ADA stack but rather invest the spare $TRX which I receive from CITYUPTAKE in the new reward generating token called $Pi. This one will go into open Beta soon and is already delivering double the rewards of voting.

The total received passive income value year to date is $843,- which puts me on a 6,5 k$ trajectory for the year. Not enough for retirement, but providing a serious impact on the road to retirement.

Passive income January

2020 is the year to build passive income through Crypto and at the beginning of the year, I selected 4 coins with are instrumental in my opinion to create a good base for future passive income: $COTI, $ADA, $CITYUPTAKE & WINk.

For all 4 a goal has been set of where I should be in stack size by the end of the year and monthly I am tracking progress.

Passive income coins status vs target

In January year to date, I have received $460,- of passive income through crypto. The vast majority of that >95% has been through the combination of CITYUPTAKE and CITY Alpha. But for the future, I have my eyes on $COTI as well, which is why I boosted my stack and am already almost half way the annual target. $CITYUPTAKE is almost on track and both $ADA and $WINk are behind. All in all, I would say I am a bit ahead of schedule

Next phase in portfolio building

Change of approach to build crypto portfolio

In the last 12 Months, I have almost tripled the amount of FIAT money invested in my crypto-currency portfolio. With that some mayor goals are achieved:

  • Enough CITYUPTAKE tokens accumulated for receiving steady rewards;
  • Enough $COTI tokens accumulated as a team effort to run an advanced node when the Testnode is moved to mainnet;
  • A base of $ADA tokens build, staking on the Shelley Testnet;
  • Enough $WINk tokens accumulated to slowly increase the bag on $WINk tokens.
Changes in crypto-portfolio over the last year.

Overall the crypto-portfolio is in profit mainly due to the fact that the rewards (mainly CITYUPTAKE) is driving the dollar average per token owned down.

There is a clear target to increase the stack of (future) passive income tokens for this year.

Passive income carrying tokens target for 2020

The expectation now is that the further build can be done without the need of injection anymore FIAT money, allowing a steady increase of the portfolio value and a reduction of the average dollar cost of all tokens.

Cardano Staking

Finding out ADA staking can be split by opening multiple wallets

When Shelley Testnet went live I was eager to start staking my $ADA in the testnet, but had an immediate small disappointment when I found out that I could only stake on one stake-pool and I could not spread the $ADA I owned over several stake-pools. So the choice was;

  • Stake all my $ADA to CITYUPTAKE staking pool and with that feed the Trade Desk of my favorite passive income rewarding crypto project but receive no staking rewards my self>
  • Stake all my $ADA to another staking pool and earn $ADA for the staking but be disloyal to CITYUPTAKE.

So my decision was to vote 2 days for CITYUPTAKE and then 2 days for a Cardano community driven staking pool.

Delegating to CITYUPTAKE stake pool

The backside of this approach was the re-occuring fee to change the staking delegation:

ADA wallet transaction fee

Until I found out there is the possibility to open multiple wallets on the testnet through the Yoroi wallet. So now 50% of my ADA is used for staking CITYUPTAKE and 50% is used for Staking Cardanians.
