🙏 These Side Hustles Pay in Crypto

If you’re looking to start a side hustle to save for that 💍 ring, pay off some debt, or finally take that trip to ✈️ Ibiza, we’ve found some ideas to get you started. And the best part, you can get paid in crypto!

CRYPTO GRIND – A freelance job site that pays you in crypto? Yes, please! It’s kind of like Fiverr for crypto. Freelancers can post unlimited service ads or submit to existing job posts. Crypto Grind is the only site to offer multi-signature escrow services so both employees and freelancers are protected. And like Craigslist, they offer secure, encrypted emails. They also offer a great referral program. For every new user you refer, you get 2% on every transaction they make through the site! So what are you waiting for? Get grinding.

DITCH-IT – Ditch-it is putting classified ads on the blockchain. It’s kind of like Craigslist, but you sell unwanted items and get paid in crypto. As far as we can tell, Ditch-it hasn’t eliminated the whole “meeting strangers” part, but that’s half the fun right?

Speaking of strangers, Ditch-it has excellent security measures in place, such as facial recognition software to protect buyers and sellers. Ditch-it uses the cryptocurrency Electroneum and the site claims that payments are received in seconds. So clear out that closet of unwanted junk and start turning it into crypto!

STEEMIT.COM – Steemit is a social media site where users are rewarded in crypto. You can earn crypto tokens, called STEEM by voting on other user’s articles, discovering a post before it becomes popular… aka every hipster’s dream, and by publishing your own posts.

Essentially you’re rewarded for creating content and being an active member of the community. STEEM is traded on the exchanges so you can cash out for dollars.

PURSE.IO – Purse states that their mission is to, “Make crypto useful.” The way it works is you can use Bitcoins as a buyer to get discounts up to 45% on Amazon! Say you wanted $100 of items, you would offer $55 in Bitcoins. The average discount is 15%. You can also sign up as a Purse Merchant to sell items in exchange for Bitcoins. Merchants can sign up for free and pay 5% or $20 a month plus a 1% transaction fee.

These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to side hustling for crypto, but they’re great places to start!

Do you have other side hustles that earn you crypto? Let us know on social media.
