Staking COTI

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 2.0 May summary

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;

  1. 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.
  2. The staking returns are best in class.
Overview of staking returns

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.

COTI-90 Days trade contract in KuCoin.

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.

Daily staking result on KuCoin

After making a small successful trial yesterday, I will be looking to increase the staking position on KuCoin gradually.

COTI Community Node is live!

The node is live, work is starting

We are proud to announce that our COTI Community Node is live now!

It is now part of the selection of nodes to choose from when planning transactions on the COTI Network:

Selection of active nodes on the COTI network (May 1, 2020).

We are now setting up our Telegram Channel with value add content for people curious about COTI and the other purpose is to be a meeting ground for people staking on the COTI Community Node.

For more details on our Community Node and further plans check out our webpage COTI Community Node

BTT Staking

BTT staking has started successfully.

Since some days, you can stake your $BTT in Dlive to get some rewards. As the first day staking rewards were outrageous due to the combination of a low amount of staked BTT and a high daily reward. Since then the amount of Staked BTT has settled down just north of 11.28 Billion (5.3% of total supply) and the daily rewards are now stabilizing close to 20 Million BTT.

If these number continue like this a 60% annualized staking return is a great deal.

COTI Community Node

Carpathian Basin has been selected as the future Community Node on the COTI blockchain.

This is the start of a new chapter. As of yesterday April 24th, Carpathian Basin has been selected to become the next Community Node in the COTI blockchain as laid out in the message in the COTI telegram channel yesterday.

Community Node win announcement

This is a big honor but also a big responsibility. In the coming days, we will find out the exact requirements of running the Community Node and the difference between running our node on the COTI Testnet.

We will create a plan on how we can support the COTI blockchain in optima forma and for that purpose, we will extend our COTI node page on the website with an introduction of the team (done), a roadmap of our plans to support COTI and detailed info about COTI in order to introduce new people to this great Blockchain.

For now we would like to thank the people who put their trust in us and voted for us. We will honor that trust with our hard work to contribute to the mass adoption of COTI as the “Coin of the Internet”.

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.

#111Months November 2019

11 months have passed from the #111Months challenge. Time for a review #passiveincome #ada #cardano #TRON #earlyretirement

#111/11

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.

Summary

#111/11 Scorecard

Both passive income and liquid wealth targets are ahead of schedule, although wealth didn’t show a significant growth.

Passive income

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

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

Stocks

Again during the month of November two stock flips could happen creating profit too increase the hold of AbbVie and Altria.

Crypto

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.

Crypto targets.

100 Months to go….

Vision, goals & roadmap

Roadmap is there

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.
