After CITYUPTAKE and COTI, I have started intense participation in a third Cryptocurrency project. The project is called The Crypto Universe. The intention of The Crypto Universe is to be a platform to help people who are new to or inexperienced with Blockchain and Cryptocurrency specificly to land in the big bad world called Crypto.
The Crypto Universe website consists of several sections, which will be filled with content gradually.
The roadmap describes them one by one and the first section which has already gone live is the Promille Project:
The Promille Project is the part of our Eco-system which will contain a variation of Tokens to the benefit of its holders. The first token created in the Promille Project is the Pi-Token. The Pi-Token is a token which uses invested TRX to create a passive income, while guaranteeing the value of the invested TRX. “Building Trust through Transparency”. The white paper explains this in much more details:
The Token was created on 02-02-2020 and has been paying out rewards for close to two Months now, which was on of the reasons for a summary of the achievements so far.
More features of The Crypto Universe will come and more info about the Pi-Token can be found here: https://t.me/promille_project In time The Crypto Universe will get its own section in the Carpathian Basin website.
Months 15 of the 111 months early retirement has finished. Time for a summary
The 15th month of the #111Months challenge has finished and due to the global situation we are in, it was a month of a major step back. Both the share values and the crypto value dropped back. Eventhough the spending has been reduced, giving more opportunity to buy more Crypto and shares, the nett result was negative.
The proportion of loans on my total wealth has climbed up after a steady continuous decline. In the coming months, our government has suspended loan repayments, so the free cash will be used to increase exposure to shares, crypto and precious metals.
Also the passive income generation has suffered over the month of March and has dropped significantly. Even though the holdings of all passive income generating assets have increased and a new asset (Pi-Token) has been added to the list of passive income generating assets.
With March having been an extremely busy month, setting up another Crypto project while dealing with COVID19 issues in normal work, the blog has been neglected a bit. But a recovery is in place
With the mini-bull run behind us, I thought it would be nice to check how the Coinmarket cap developed over time.
The table above shows how the top 20 has changed significantly from 2017 (Jan 16) to 2018. However in the following years there was less of a shake up. Clearly the market cap has been severely impacted by the 2017 end of year bull run. In the following bear market the ranking has stayed relatively stable. To my surprise there are still quite some Forks in the top 20 and I would expect the majority of them to drop our during the next bull run, as I would hope that utility will become more important than the name of the project.
However the top 3 of the Coinmarket Cap seems unshakeable.
This exercise led me to investigate the coins in the top 20 a little bit more in detail and I finally checked out LEO, as it has always intrigued me, what is it and why is it in the top 20? I will add some more words to that at the end of this article.
So what happened with the projects vanishing from the top 20?
The projects dropped out in the recent years have been able to keep a position in the top 50 with the exception of ICON. But among the projects, which were shaken out after 2017 there is a bigger variation to see. Clearly a lot of them have been overtaking by newer projects with superior technology.
What is Unus Sed Leo (LEO)?*
“Unus Sed Leo (LEO) is an exchange token that was launched on May 22 by iFinex, the parent company of Bitfinex, Ethfinex, and Tether. The LEO token is an exchange utility token for current and future iFinex trading platforms and services.
It was launched to the public following a private sale raising $1 billion. During this private sale, the purchase price of Unus Sed Leo (LEO) was 1 USDT for 1 LEO and the total supply of 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) LEO tokens were sold.
Why Did iFinex Launch an Exchange Utility Token? Cryptocurrency exchanges issue their own exchange tokens for a variety of reasons; to attract more users, to benefit existing users, and to generate more profits. iFinex is no different.
However, the primary reason they issued the LEO token when they did is because in 2018, Bitfinex’s payment processor, Crypto Capital, was subject to a partial government seizure equating to $850 million of Bitfinex’s funds. Bitfinex is actively working to expedite the return of these funds but there is no certainty they will be able to recover them.
Therefore, to alleviate this cash shortfall, iFinex conducted a private offering of $1 billion for its Unus Sed Leo token.
If Bitfinex is successful in recovering the $850 million funds from Crypto Capital, they stated that an amount equal to 95% of the recovered funds will be used to repurchase outstanding tokens and then burn them. As well, Bitfinex will also use 80% of recovered funds from a 2016 hack to repurchase and burn Unus Sed Leo tokens.
The repurchasing and burning of LEO tokens from recovered funds will reduce the token’s total supply and drive the price up through time.”
After setting up the CITYUPTAKE passive income stream in 2019. In 2020 I want to add:
Cardano blockchain based passive income
COTI blockchain based passive income
Passive income through Pynk
For Cardano I joined the Shelley testnet and although majority of ADA is used to boost the CITYUPTAKE Trade Desk, still a portion is used to receive staking rewards. Waiting for projects like CITYUPTAKE to emerge for serious passive income.
For COTI, first staking poolparticipation has begun, now I am saving to have enough COTI to start my own active node.
For Pynk I finally accumulated enough community points to be converted into Pynk shares.
For that I had to predict and invest time for 5 months:
I made 148 predictions and 42 forecasts.
Anybody interested in exploring Pynk please use this link: link
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.
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
With investment emotion is a big factor. It is important to be honest to yourself. Are you an emotional person when it comes to investments? Are you quick to be drawn into a FOMO? Are you likely to have a panic sell when prices drop? Have you done impulse purchases in the past?
When your answer is yes to most of the above, it is best to steer away from the temptation of emotion impacted investment.
I have done so by locking most of my investments and making them difficult to touch. Instead of trading, I put a significant part of my holdings in the hands of transparent and compliant professional traders like CITYUPTAKE and soon also accompanied by PYNK. These are taking care of my funds while generating a nice passive income. With that passive income, I can choose to re-invest or to use it for more risky investments.
Besides CITYUPTAKE and PYNK also nice opportunities are opening up at Cardano, which is soon to be ready for staking as well.
So the monthly decision is now, what to do with my investable money? Crypto or stock? CITYUPTAKE or PYNK?
In the end I know that as long as I am not trying to trade myself, the return on my investment will be good whatever decision I take.
