Believe it or not, once upon a time investors made decisions past faux white papers and moon/lambo memes. I’m a big proponent of adopting cryptocurrency and blockchain projects because of their actual utilization – rarely for speculation or holding. In general, rampant speculation drowns out meaningful education. However, with the diverse number of tasks released, it was only a matter of your time before tasks sprung up that reached back to the “fin” part of their fintech origins.
All three major types of cryptocurrencies – transactional, platform, and electricity – are viewing a crop of tasks that are meant specifically for keeping as a kind of passive and investment income. Since a plethora of content already exists around mining and since it requires a high hurdle to entry in accordance with traditional income/unaggressive investments, let’s focus on some more achievable alternatives.
Traditional investment (and our friends at the IRS) distinguish capital investments and passive investments based on where in fact the investor derives his/her literal earnings. A return noticed on the sale of an investment asset (say, offering an ICO token after it rose in value), is considered a capital investment. A return, or income, noticed independently of a secured asset bought or sold is considered money or passive investment. The clearest-cut example from traditional finance is dividends from stocks kept here. Passive income is the most highly sought-after form of investment, since it’s the literal actualization of “your money working for you.” Aggressive income is notoriously hard to achieve Yet.
From Airbnb, to blogging with affiliate links, to collecting stock dividends, to franchising, to leasing real estate, passive income is actually hard to capitalize on and becomes less passive than intended often. Additionally, passive income requires large upfront capital and more importantly often, time, yet often returns significantly less than ideal rewards.

Thankfully, a few pioneers from crypto-world are turning the tide by offering a few different methods that resemble income and passive investments. Editor’s notice: You already know what this will say. The second you saw “editor’s note”, you got ready for that “this isn’t investment advice” statement. We can’t stress it enough that isn’t investment advice, and is informational purely. Cryptocurrencies are very volatile – gain/lose money on your own advice and research from licensed and experience professional providers.
There is no exact evaluation for dividends within crypto-world, however, there are multiple different other ways of holding cryptocurrencies for a passive return. No two tasks are as well along the way either exactly, so be wary that additional research is necessary for any method recommended below. Blockchains and cryptocurrencies use special algorithms, known as consensus algorithms, that mathematically determine which next stop is the “right” one.
