I Like Money, Do You? : 5 Easy Ways to Make Money Online

From the early days of the internet .com boom, through the beginning of online payment processors and online auctions, such as Paypal, and eBay, to Cryptocurrencies, I have always been intrigued by making money on the internet. I remember old news segments about people working from home, making money, doing surveys, or data entry.  A lot of that stuff you can still do, but it is time-consuming.  I’d like to share with you 5 ways you can make money online, doing little to no work.

1. Make Money: Sell on eBay

Ok, out of these methods of making money, this one is most likely the most physically taxing, but it can help you declutter your life. If you are like me, a single bachelor, you might have had a few roommates that have come and gone in your life. When that happens, they typically leave a lot of “junk” behind.  If it truly is junk, you might be better off tossing it out, or recycling it, however as the saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” You could have a garage/yard sale, but the focus of this article is to make money online. Download the eBay app, snap some pics of your item, and list it. I used to work with a guy that would go to the thrift store on his lunch break, buy retro toys for cheap, and turn around and sell them on eBay for a premium price. Not a bad racquet.


2. Crypto and Coinbase Earn

Here is another fairly risk-free way to make money with Cryptocurrency, but the best part is if you invest using “stablecoin,” you don’t have to worry about losing money due to the volatility of the market.  What is stablecoin? you may ask.  A stablecoin is a new class of cryptocurrencies that attempts to offer price stability and is backed by a reserve asset. Stablecoins have gained traction as they attempt to offer the best of both world’s—the instant processing and security or privacy of payments of cryptocurrencies and the volatility-free stable valuations of fiat currencies. Blockfi allows you to buy and transfer crypto into its account, and hold it like a savings account, except at way better rates. I use USDC. It has the value of USD, but it is in crypto form. Blockfi allows you to gain 8.6% APY on stablecoins such as USDC.  I usually buy my USDC at Coinbase and transfer it over to Blockfi.  I’ve made almost $20 in interest over the last 3 months. If you sign up using my link and deposit $100 dollars or more you will receive a $10 bonus. The link to sign up is below:
