Generating passive income through cryptocurrencies

It is now a fact that cryptocurrencies have triggered a real revolution in the investment sector.

Today, we are analyzing the solutions offered by the French platform. Just Mining.

Interview with Owen Simonin (aka Hasheur), the founder of Just Mining

Owen shares his strategies for generating passive income with crypto

Crypto staking: generating revenue by participating in the blockchain

Stake your Solana, Elrond, Caradano or even Polkadot cryptos on Just Mining

Staking consists in immobilizing your cryptocurrencies in a digital wallet or “wallet” in order to contribute to the operations of a blockchain. Crypto staking happens on tokens that have Proof-of-Stake (PoS) as a validation protocol.

PoS thus associates the level of trust granted to a member of the network with the number of tokens that it is ready to immobilize. Conversely, Proof-of-Work (PoW), Bitcoin's validation protocol, uses “mining”, which is a process consisting in solving complex mathematical equations using computer resources. It requires a lot of energy resources and overpowered miners.

When a member of the network immobilizes their cryptos for a certain period of time, they receive rewards in exchange that can be similar to dividends. These rewards, presented as annualized interest rates, depend on several factors: the number of blockchain participants offering staking, the asset's immobilization time, and the network offering staking itself.

You can do some Cryptocurrency staking on Just Mining ! They offer more than a dozen crypto projects including several tokens from the top 10 cryptocurrencies: Cardano, Solana or even Polkadot.

Crypto lending: earning interest on your stablecoins

Lend your USDT, DAI, or USDC for interest on Just Mining

Appeared with the phenomenon DeFi (decentralized finance), crypto lending is one of the star applications of the latter. It allows users who hold stablecoins (cryptocurrencies pegged to a stable value such as USD or EUR) to “lend” them to other users in exchange for remuneration in the form of interest called APR (Annual Percentage Rate) or annual percentage return.

Lending is made possible by smart contract technology where a decentralized protocol or platform connects the two parties, creating a loan service between individuals. The lender will deposit the stablecoins in order to make them available to the borrower. The latter will have to place other cryptocurrencies as collateral to obtain the loan. Once the lending has been validated, the lender receives interest for the liquidity provided according to the duration of the loan.

You can do some Crypto lending on Just Mining and thus make your stablecoins work, the platform offers lending solutions on USDT, USDC or even DAI.
