Many of us are strained trying to make ends meet during the current Covid-19 and economic crisis. And while I have been observing and reading about cryptocurrency for many years, but have only recently started investing and trading.

So while I’m not a cryptocurrency expert, I have figured out how to make some extra money. This is not free money. There is some effort and/or investment involved. If you’re interested in learning more, please keep reading. I’ll share links that will earn each of us some crypto when you complete simple actions like creating a wallet (or trading account), watching a video or completing a cryptocurrency transaction.
There are now numerous varieties of cryptocurrency available for trade and investment. You may be most familiar with Bitcoin or Ethereum, as they are the most widely traded and reported on in the media.
What is Cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency created or “mined” on decentralized computer networks known as blockchains, and use strong cryptography features to record transactions on a digital ledger.
There are now a variety of digital wallets and crypto exchanges to buy, sell, invest, and exchange crypto. I will share a couple of my favorites below.
Investing and Trading in Cryptocurrency
Some digital currencies such as Bitcoin trade at a high level of volatility. There are some known as stable coins whose value is tied to another asset such as the US Dollar, or gold and trade with much less volatility. If you can stomach the volatility, Bitcoin generally offers a good return.
To start you need a crypto wallet and/or an account on an exchange. I am using Coinbase, a popular crypto trading site. Coinbase offers wallets for a generous variety of currencies. You can invest, or use it for transactions and exchanges.

Investing in Crypto on Robinhood
Many know Robinhood as a stock trading app, but it is also a trading platform for a number of cryptocurrencies. However, this is not a wallet and you cannot send crypto to anybody or exchange it. The basic rule: buy low, sell high. You can get free stock for signing up for Robinhood by clicking here*. (Subject to Robinhood’s terms and limitations). *Referral Link
I started investing in stocks and crypto late in 2019 as part of my new year resolutions. But as with all things, sometimes circumstances get in the way. I’ll keep investing and looking for opportunities, and I hope you’ll join me. And once you’ve started, you can share with your networks and earn with referral links as well.
