18 Best Digital Skills to Make Money Online (under 6 Industries)
A. Ecommerce Industry
Ecommerce industry is the fastest growing industry in the world, because people are now shopping most of their stuffs online ranging from groceries to furniture, gadgets etc.
I’m not saying you should start making these products before you can make money online with eCommerce. What you need is to master the skills under it.
Below are my recommended best digital skills you can master under eCommerce industry;
This requires partnering with the manufacturers of the products (E.g. Wears, Smartphones, etc.) and you help them resell. The more you help them sell, the more the profit you’ll made.
Note: You don’t need to buy the products, all you need is to setup a channel (it can be a dropshipping website or social media) where you can help the manufacturing companies resell the products.
Learn more about dropshipping business here.
Simply, importing of goods in “mini” or small quantities and you sell at your most satisfying price(s).
You can buy a bulky goods (containing 100 pieces of a particular product), maybe let’s say with just $100 that’s $1 per one product. Then when imported and delivered to you, you can sell at $10 per one products.
If you’re able to resell each product at $10 (or equivalent in your local currency), then you’re making at least, $7 profit per product.
And $7 x 100 products is whooping $700 as your profit!
To make money online by doing mini importation business is not that easy, that’s why you need to learn and master the skill. But to be honest with you, there’s money on it.
There are some businesses that have their own eCommerce stores, but they need the help of a digital marketer to assist them in driving sales.
If you’re good at digital marketing, you can focus on eCommerce marketing, you’re going to make some money provided you deliver what you promised to your clients.

B. Programming & Tech
This industry has taken over. Almost all business owners are utilizing the power of technology or digital marketing in their businesses, and getting in this industry poise a great profit.
I’m not going to list all the best digital skills you can learn under Programming and tech but below skillsets are recommended;
4. Web Designing
I don’t think this digital skill is dying any soon. I’m sure you’re familiar with the term “Web Designer“, right?
Web Designers are those guys who design websites… Simply as that.
Learning how to design websites using different CMS (content management system) like WordPress, Shopify, Wix, Drupal and other platforms is a skill that’s going to earn you money as long as you’re in the right marketplace to get jobs.
5. Web Development
Web development is very different though, similar to Web Design.
When it comes to web development as a digital skill, you’re required to know how to use programming languages to build websites from scratch.
We also have backend developer who work behind the scene to give the frontend work some life and we have fullstack developers as well.
So, you can choose to learn how to become a frontend web developer, backend developer or a fullstack developer. You will still make money online with any of them.
6. Mobile App Development
Businesses, Organizations, Churches and different companies need a mobile application for one or two things.
If you can learn mobile app development, you’re going to make lot of money online from those who need your service.
Just like web development, you need learn some programming languages such as Java, Python, Swift, ReactNative and other languages used for developing mobile apps.
C. Graphic Design
One of the fastest growing industries in the world. Gone are those days when graphic designing is only about logos or making banners, but right now, smart and experienced graphic designers are making some bucks by designing for companies, businesses, organizations, and individuals.
Aside from logo designing, banner or fliers design, below are my two recommended digital skills that are more profitable in graphic design industry;
This digital skill is trending really hot. People who are product designers are part of a successful startups and big companies. They are the architect behind that beautiful websites or mobile apps you’re seeing.
These people are good at User interface and User Experience (UI/UX) design and they make lot of money even from a single project.
You can learn how to use tools like Adobe XD or Figma. We also have other tools like Sketch and so on, but XD and Figma are the two kings for product designing.
Branding is the marketing action to build your brand.
Okay, let break it like this;
Branding is a marketing action in which a company creates a “unique” brand name, symbol (including logo and icon) or designs only attached to that company. All companies in the world have their unique style of branding, and they spend lot of money to get the best designs.
All you need to do to master this skill is to be creative with graphics design.
Graphic designer who are good at branding is needed mostly at manufacturing companies or companies that produces physical products such as drinks, canned or packaged food, confectioneries and so on.
D. Foreign Exchange
Foreign Exchange is also known as ‘FOREX’.
FOREX is the biggest or largest market in the world, because we have thousand of big companies, central banks of all countries and big brands in this market trading stocks, bonds, securities, currencies and other assets.
Skill to learn in this market?
Like I said above big companies and institutions are in this market, you should not get into this market until you learn how it works because the market is very risky and also, you can’t enter the market directly without a broker.
The learning process includes how to get the best forex broker for you, how to analyze the market and place trades etc.
There’s money in FOREX but you must be careful, master the skill before you jump into it.
E. Information & Content Industry
Well, this is becoming an industry itself although, it is still under multimedia industry but let’s talk about the big deal here.
Have you ever heard of the saying that “content is the king”?
Yes, content is really the king, no matter how great your business idea, innovation, creativity and/or instincts are, without content to get in the heart of people, then you’ve switched off or ignore your financial progress.
But what digital skills should you learn here?
How to Sell Your Knowledge Online
If you’re good at something and that “something” can solve one or two problems, then turn the knowledge to money making machine. That’s what most gurus are doing now.
If you know how to cook different food or snacks, sew clothes, write code etc., package that knowledge and sell.
This knowledge packaging can be inform of either;
- Video tutorial
- Or both
Vlogging is also known as “Video Blogging”.
People are making money on YouTube, millions of dollars!
Almost all these YouTubers have a business or career aside from vlogging, but YouTube has become one of their sources of earning. But what do they do? They simply teach people what they know or catch fun.
Making money on YouTube is not that easy, you have to be patient and know your onions.
If you want to start vlogging, kindly be aware that you must reach a milestone before you start making money from YouTube. The milestone includes having at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours watch time – that’s when you can monetize your channel with Google AdSense.
Blogging is one of best digital skills to make money online under the Information and content creation industry.
Just like Vlogging, you teach people one or two things or share information with your readers.
There are many ways to make money blogging which includes Google AdSense as well. Read this blog post to learn about how to make money blogging.
Social Media Influencing
If you good at something that can entertain people on social media, please start doing it.

Video Making & Marketing
Still on Video!
Personally, I prefer watching a long educative video than reading long content.
And that’s the same with most people in the world, that’s why YouTube have more than five billon viewers per day.
Aside from YouTube, some people focus on creating motivational videos such as Princea, or adventure (travel) videos such as Nas Daily.
If you can shoot a video about motivational content, adventures, or other stuffs to motivate and entertain people, start doing it.
F. Blockchain Industry
The last man standing, but the man that’s currently taking over.
If you’ve heard about Bitcoin before, then you have little knowledge about the Blockchain Industry.
We have lot of people making money in this industry, even the world top billionaires are now investing in this Industry.
But how can you make money online in this Blockchain industry? Let’s talk about mastering the digital skills involved;
Buying or Trading Cryptocurrencies
This is the top way to make money online in this industry.
It’s just the same as FOREX trading but slightly different. If you can’t trade cryptocurrencies, you can buy and HODL (hold for some time to yield profit).
Utilize Blockchain in Your Business
Simply, start accepting payment with cryptocurrency rather than your local currency.
If you are a programmer, you have higher chances of making money online in this industry. The reason is that Blockchain is open-source, you can create your own product or service and start making money from it.
Or you can work for startups or companies who are in this Blockchain industry.
This is one of the top 10 ways to make money online and one of the sought-after digital skills in this age.
I won’t say much about this because I have more than 2 different blog posts dedicated to this. Read below;
CONCLUSION: Top Digital Skills to Make Money Online

Hawkit.ng Review – How to Make Money on Hawkit.ng (Earn up to N36k!)
Hawkit.ng is the latest platform to make money online in Nigeria. No doubt, at least you have seen someone post about it either on Facebook or your WhatsApp status.
We are in Nigeria where people are so eager to make money, of course, due to how poor the country is. Everybody is trying to survive.
But also, due to this, some people have become a victim of scams, especially on platforms like Hawkit.ng.
You know about NNU Income, a platform that claimed to help people make money online platform that carries people’s money into “vanishing”. And a lot of apps and websites like that.
But let’s talk about Hawkit.ng.
What is Hawkit.ng?
Hawkit.ng is an eCommerce platform that offers a more convenient way for people to sell and advertise their products, and for consumers to buy items below market prices.
You can buy almost any commodities including cars, shoes, clothes, yam, data subscription, hire an artisan, etc.
Maybe Hawkit.ng would be best described as a “classified ads” website like Jiji.ng or Craiglist.
Hawkit.ng is not really a “money-making platform” but, an “eCommerce platform”.
In fact, when Hawkit.ng was originally launched, it focused only on eCommerce (selling, advertising, and buying stuff).
It was later the platform decided to add money-making features, at least to get people along as big platforms like Jumia and Konga are already dominating the eCommerce industry in Nigeria.
That means transactions are actually taking place there, it’s not like a platform where you only need to register and start referring people to register too. If they don’t register someone, then you have nothing to gain.
Now that the platform has added features for people to make money, can it be trusted? That brings us to the question;
How Does Hawkit.ng Work?
- Buying & selling of “Anything”: If you sell stuff, you can list and advertise them on Hawkit, then people who are interested will buy from you
- Buying & Reselling Data plan: As described earlier, you can buy stuff below the market price. The same thing applies to data plans, you can buy at a lower price on Hawkit.ng and sell at a normal price to people
- Boost Your Social Media Accounts: Instead of doing “follow-for-follow” or using bots to engage with your social media accounts, you can pay a fee on Hawkit.ng and they’ll bring you real and organic engagement
- Perform Tasks to Earn Money: The first 3 mentioned above are the core reason for having a platform like Hawkit.ng in the first place. But to drive more engagements and create awareness, that’s why there is a feature to make money on Hawkit.ng.
We will talk about this money-making part soon. But before then, let’s talk about the legitimacy of this platform;
Is Hawkit.ng Legit or Scam?
Someone asked me this, but for me to provide an answer, it took me about 2 days to do my research.
The outcome: Hawkit.ng is not a scam, it is legit.
Oh, how am I so sure that Hawkit.ng is legit? Maybe that’s what is wiggling on your mind now.
Well, I had to look for loopholes, how bad people are taking about Hawkit.ng but I have till now found nothing. Instead, I’m hearing how good the platform is.
For instance, a friend of mine who has been engaging on different platforms to make money online and has been scammed at different times shared her experience about Hawkit.ng with me.
She said when she heard about Hawkit.ng, she felt it was going to be like other platforms that scam people. But she decided to “risk it”. She paid N1,000 for the registration fee to become a member.
But in a few days, she has earned N2,500 which is over 200% of her investment.
Unlike many Ponzi scheme platforms you can see the hundred thousand you’re making on your dashboard but can’t withdraw it.
But on Hawkit.ng, she was able to withdraw her earnings to her “Zenith bank account” in just a few clicks.
And a lot of other people share their own stories online too.
Hawkit.ng is Legit? One daring thing about Hawkit.ng…
The platform claims they will refund your registration fee of N1,000 if you don’t make more than that within 30 days!
I Mean it takes some darings for someone or a platform to promise a refund if the product or service did not work as advertised.
How Can I Make Money on Hawkit.ng?
Making money on Hawkit.ng is as simple as doing as pressing your phone and doing what you like doing; being on social media and maybe sharing information with people.
Here are basically what to do to make money on Hawkit.ng:
Refer and Earn
Because Hawkit.ng is still growing, they’re leveraging referral marketing strategies to boost their product awareness.
What they do is simple;
You join to become a member; you also refer someone to become a member and you earn on each member you successfully referred.
Oh oh… You’re thinking this is those regular “bring two-two people platforms”. I got you. Experience 🤣
But Hawkit is not like that. As I said, Hawkit.ng is an eCommerce platform, not a money-making platform. So, you can choose to ignore this refer and earn feature and focus on other things on the platform.
How Much Does Hawkit.ng Pay Per referral?
For every successful referral, you will be paid N500.
For someone to become a member, they have to pay a sum of N1,000, and Hawkit.ng will give you 50% of that whenever someone joined the platform through your referral code.
Imagine you are able to refer at least 10 people per week, that’s N5,000 for you.
So, the refer and earn feature on Hawkit.ng is a viable way to make money online in Nigeria. Let’s talk about another way to make money on Hawkit.ng
Perform Social Tasks
This is as simple as liking other people’s posts, following pages, and commenting. Sometimes, sharing posts to your social media platforms, especially WhatsApp.
The commission on each social task varies and is relatively small. But if you are consistent enough, it could be something “hooge”.

If you can post and perform 5 WhatsApp tasks in a day, that’s N100. If you are consistent with that for 30 days, that’s N3,000.
Resell Data & Airtime
This is entire as a business on its own. You can buy 6G MTN data for N1,460 and resell it at the rate of N1,500 which means you will earn N40 as a profit.
Data reselling business is very common in Nigeria just like the Recharge card printing business and I know people are earning from it.
Sell Something, anything on Hawkit.ng
You don’t need me to explain this as it is what you have been doing for a long as a business person. You can sell anything on Hawkit.ng and make money.
One benefit of using Hawkit.ng to sell your stuff is that your product will be automatically targeted to those people within your city so that you won’t need to stress yourself targeting the wrong audience and worrying about delivery.
If you have sold something on the likes of Jiji or Jumia before, Hawkit is a great alternative you need to try.
How to Register on Hawkit.ng
To register on Hawkit.ng, all you need is your internet-enabled smartphone or laptop and you’re good to go. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to do that;
- Click here to sign up (kindly use gbolamedia as your referral code)
- When clicked on the registration link above, you will land on a page where you will enter your basic data, do so and follow the next commands.
- Become a member by activating with N1,000. This is optional but if you want to earn on Hawkit.ng, you have to pay this fee.
4. After successful registration and activation, start carrying out your tasks to make money.
Tips to Make Money on Hawkit.ng
Making money online is not easy especially when it comes to using this type of platform. But here are my few tips on how you can maximize Hawkit to earn big.
- Have a target per day and be consistent with the target. In a day, you may make it your goal to refer just 2 people…
Share 5 times to your WhatsApp, subscribe to YouTube channel, and other platforms, etc… just to target something around N1,200 per day.
If you are consistent with that goal, that is N1,200 in 30 days which is N36,000 – this even passes over the minimum wage in Nigeria.
- Use your WhatsApp status to tell people about Hawkit.ng, don’t just post, be creative with whatever you are posting. You’re selling, you’re not looking for views. Tell them why Hawkit.ng is legit and how they can make money on it
- Go on Facebook and other tools you use. Talk to friends around you. Don’t be ashamed of making money dear.
Conclusion – Hawkit.ng is Legit, Make Money on Hawkit.ng
As said earlier, Hawkit.ng is not a money-making platform like other Ponzi schemes you are familiar with. Before you earn on Hawkit, you need to work and you may choose not to refer anybody.
Although you can earn as much as possible on Hawkit.ng but register it on your mind as a “side-hustle”.
If you want to make money in the long run, I will advise you to learn a skill, I always tell people this. Don’t depend on platforms like these because it may be for just a short period of time.
But anyways, Hawkit is still here. Let’s see how much you can earn, don’t forget to use “gbolamedia” as your referral code during the registration, or simply click this link to get started ASAP.
If you have any questions, kindly contact Hawkit’s customer support.

Jumia is the largest online shopping platform in Nigeria, and currently dominating Africa’s eCommerce marketplace. They offer affordable shipping fee and there are thousand of trusted merchants and vendors on Jumia.
Big companies like Xiaomi, Samsung, Tecno and many others have an official store on Jumia, where customers can shop for their products at more discounted rate.

But most of these people who chose to shop for items on Jumia are unaware of the fact that they can earn money on Jumia (easily)!

NOTE: This blog post is quite long (more than 2,000 words). Will you like to watch the video instead? Watch video below;
5 Ways You Can Make Money on Jumia and How They’re DONE
1. Jumia Affiliate Program (KOL)
Jumia affiliate program is one of the top affiliate programs to make money in Nigeria, because they pay pretty well for their affiliates.
But how does Jumia affiliate program work and how can I start?
Jumia affiliate program work just like any other affiliate programs you’re familiar with. But in case you don’t know what affiliate marketing work, let me summarize it for you below;
Affiliate marketing is a business pattern where you help companies (or brands) to market or promote their products or services and at the end, you earn “commission” just to compensate you for your hard work.
Let’s say there’s a Hisense TV on Jumia that costs N120,000 and the affiliate commission on the TV is 15%, it simply means if you promote the Hisense TV and luckily, someone purchased the TV through your link, Jumia will pay you 15% of N120,000 which is how much? Press your calculator 😏
Okay, 15% of N120,000 is N18,000.
That’s how much you’ll be paid as a Jumia affiliate for promoting and selling that product!
Imagine if just 2 people buy the TV in a month, that’s N36,000 for you.
Note that I just used the Hisense TV as example. As a Jumia affiliate partner, you can promote any product on Jumia and make money.

Look, the steps might look too easy to be true, but let me tell you that it’s not easy and it’s TRUE that you can make money on Jumia through its affiliate program.[
You just need to learn how to do affiliate marketing and trust me, you’ll make lot of money with the knowledge.
That’s one! Let’s about the next;
2. Jumia’s JForce Program
This look like the first one, but slightly different.
With Jumia KOL affiliate program, you make money when someone click on your affiliate link and proceed to buy that product. But what if you know someone who want to order for something online but doesn’t know how?
Do you know you make money on Jumia by helping someone (or people) to shop for items on Jumia at no EXTRA cost?
Even you can buy items for yourself on Jumia and still make money.
Ask me how?
Well, that’s where Jumia’s JForce comes into play.
With Jumia’s JFORCE, you can earn minimum of N1,000 on every N5,000 order.
Personally, I’ve shopped for items on Jumia worth N200,000 this year and I’m still going to shop more. Now, assuming that I’m on JFORCE program, how much do you think I would have made by simply shopping on Jumia?
N1000 for every N5000 order, remember?
So, on N200,000, I would have made whopping N40,000! But you’re not going to be buying N200k products on Jumia every month to make N40k.
So, how can you make money on Jumia with JFORCE program? Here’s how;
How to Make Money on Jumia with JFORCE program
- Join the Jumia JFORCE program: https://jforce.jumia.com.ng/
- Fill all the details (your correct names, email, phone number, and bank details)
- Start shopping on Jumia with your JFORCE account and earn money in return!
- That’s all.
But let me give you a strategy if you really want to turn this to a business;
You can always tell people through your WhatsApp statuses, Facebook, mouth-to-mouth or any other way you know, that you can help them shop for their items on Jumia for FREE.
You can even offer then N500 airtime if they choose order the items through you. You just need to build your brand, be trusted and convince them to trust you.
Note that this is 100% LEGAL! There’s a reason why Jumia created JFORCE program; It’s simply because not everybody knows how to shop online (but they want to).
The next is;
3. Procurement Services
This is another viable way to make money on Jumia!
Procurement service is also 100% legal and some agencies are into this particular business only. For instance, when I want to buy an item from USA, I used a procuring agent who bought the item on my behalf and send to the company that will ship it to me.
Just in case you want to know how to buy items from USA and shipping to Nigeria, read how I did mine successfully with Heroshe here.
Now, back to how you can make money procuring items on Jumia. How does it work?
Well, it works like JFORCE but slightly different.
On JFORCE, you’re buying the items for someone on JUMIA at no extra cost to them, JUMIA will personally compensate your hard work.
But on Procurement service, it works different. You’ll charge a certain amount of money for helping the person to order the items (if the person comes to you him/herself ni o).
It happens! A lot people would like to buy something online but don’t know how, or as a result of technical issue, they may not be able to pay with their cards. Then they’ll be looking for someone to help them place the order.
That’s where you come in!
You can help these people and charge them small amount of money.
For instance, you can charge 10% on total order, which is pretty good and affordable.
Let assume that the person wants to buy an item that cost N5,000, you can charge 10% and that’s N500 for you.
You may be thinking what will N500 do for you, but hey, that’s just an assumption. Some people order for items work N100k, N200k and so on.
If you charge 10% on items worth N100k, that’s N10,000 for you without leaving home. All you need to do is to get the name(s) of the item, search on Jumia, confirm and buy. That’s all. I trust you won’t use up to 50MB which is not even up to N200.
So, you can make money on Jumia by offering procurement services.
Do we still have another way to make money on Jumia? Yes!
4. Become a Vendor on Jumia
Honestly, I don’t know how this work as I’m not a vendor and neither do I know anyone who’s a vendor.
But in my own little experience, let me tell you one or two things about making money as a vendor on Jumia.
First, who’s a vendor?
A vendor is simply someone (or company) who sells products on a particular marketplace.
And we have a lot of “multi-vendor” marketplace which you know such as Amazon, AliExpress, Konga, JUMIA and lot of them.
Without people or agents coming to these platforms to sell their products, there’s no way Jumia, Amazon and the rest of the multivendor marketplace will exist. They exist to bring sellers and buyers together.
So, if you have anything to sell online, use JUMIA! They have the visibility to make you sales.
If you’re a fashion designer, boutique owners, you sell any shippable items, why can’t you join Jumia as a vendor and start making money when your items are purchased by someone.
Like I said earlier, I don’t have the idea of how much JUMIA make per your item purchased, but I’m sure you’ll get to know when signing up as a vendor.
Here is where to sign up as a vendor on Jumia;
How to Become a Seller on Jumia
- Sign up here: https://www.jumia.com.ng/sp-marketplace-vendor/
- Fill all forms correctly with your details
- Complete the onboarding training
- List your products and start selling!
Okay, any other way to make money on Jumia? I got another one, the last one!
5. Become a Delivery or Pickup Station Agent
I don’t have much information about this, but I know it’s possible and a viable way to make money on Jumia.
The first part is by becoming a delivery agent.
This can be kind of stressful as I’m sure you’ll be scrutinized thoroughly before you can be accepted. The reason is simply because they need someone who can be trusted with customers’ items.
If you’re interested and you have all necessary documents and referees to tender, you can contact JUMIA via this email address and ask them directly or check below;
How to Join Jumia as Delivery or Logistics Agent
- Sign up here: https://jumia_form.formstack.com/forms/3pl_interest_registration_en
- complete the form and submit
- Expect feedback from JUMIA.
The second part is by becoming a pickup station agent.
Jumia has lot of pickup stations across the country and I’m sure they need more of those local offices.

8 Legit Ways to Make Money with Bitcoin (Cryptos) – No 2 is the Easiest!
I understand why you are trying to make money with bitcoin; you’re either tired of that job, that vocational skill that’s not giving you enough, you’re a student and you’re trying to start taking your own responsibilities or, you are just looking for a reliable side-hustle.
That’s quite good, I hate comfort zones too.
But you need to be very careful because you can easily be scammed due to your lack or inadequacy of knowledge about making money with cryptocurrencies.
Right in this blog post, I will highlight a few ways you can definitely make money with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. And I will also show you a few ways you can spot a scammer who’s trying to turn you into a prey.
Before we go into the pool, do you know what bitcoin or cryptocurrencies are?
Oh well, for the sake of those who need a brief introduction, let me say one or two things about cryptocurrency so that you’ll understand basically how it works.
What is Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency?
A cryptocurrency is simply a “digital money”.
Too quick right? Okay, let me explain further;
A cryptocurrency (“Crypto + Currency”) is a means of exchange or currency that makes use of digital files as “money”. These digital files are so secure because they’re created using a method known as “cryptography” and are decentralized.
Let’s me make it clearer;
Cryptography is the science of hiding information, meaning that you can visibly see the currency (just like the Paper notes or coins) but you can know how much of a cryptocurrency you have, you can send, receive and trade it.
“Decentralized” simply means it is under nobody’s control.
This is the most interesting part of cryptocurrencies. Unlike the US Dollar, Japanese Yen, Nigeria Naira and other currencies that are being controlled by the government, nobody is controlling bitcoin or cryptocurrency!
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency created in 2008 by someone or a group of people (anonymous) called Satoshi Nakamoto.
Bitcoin is one of the cryptocurrencies we have, just like the US Dollar is one of the note currencies we spend in the world. Other cryptocurrency we have included Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR) and so on.
Now that you know what bitcoin is, let’s talk about making money with it.
Kindly note that just like you can make money with bitcoin, you can also make money with Ethereum and other cryptos.
Make Money with Cryptos: How to Make Money with Bitcoin
This is the fastest way to make money with Bitcoin and any other cryptocurrencies.
Trading requires deep knowledge and insight about the crypto sphere. You need to learn how to do your Technical analysis, Fundamental analysis and sometimes, Sentimental analysis.
If Cryptocurrency trading is easy, everyone would have become a billionaire by now.
You need to invest in learning ‘how to trade crypto’ by paying a mentor who’s a lion in the space.
Note that Trading is risky, you can make a lot of money if your analysis is correct while reverse is the case if your analysis didn’t tally with the market.
So, you can learn how to trade, if you can afford the mentorship fee.
The mentorship fee varies from $200 (N100,000) upwards depending on the mentor’s package.
You are wondering, what is the meaning of “HODLing”, isn’t it?
Well, HODL simply means “Hold”.
HODL is a term used in cryptocurrency which means to hold a particular coin for a while, with the expectation that the coin will gain more value in the future.
A good example is when they told you to HODL Bitcoin.
One (1) Bitcoin was around $5,000 a year ago. Hadn’t you bought a fraction of Bitcoin that was worth $1,000 and HODL till now, you will be in massive profit.
Because bitcoin is now $60,000 (as at the time of writing this) – that’s 6 times increase… you will have more than $6,000 now.
HODLing is a safer way to make money with bitcoin and other cryptos. It’s just like saving money and you have nothing to lose.
HODLing is slow compared to Trading.
But I personally prefer to be on the safer side.
You can get crypto wallets to start your savings today. Below are the list of apps to help you get started;
Top Wallets to HODL (Save) Cryptocurrencies
- 1. Binance
- 2. OkeX
- 3. Luno
- 4. Buycoins (for Nigeria)
- 5. Trustwallet
HODLing to make money with bitcoin doesn’t require a special skill. All you need to learn is how to create your account and verify it and finally, how to buy the cryptocurrencies.
Staking is a way to make money with cryptos.
Generally, staking is like a “BONUS” but more massive than a mere bonus you may be thinking of.
If you’re holding a particular coin, let’s say Ethereum…
You will have to just keep the Ethereum there and wait till the price pump (increases). But as a sharp guy, you are supposed to make money with Ethereum instead of waiting for the pump season.
That’s where “staking” comes in.
You can stake Ethereum to earn another coin for FREE.
I sometimes staked ETH and earned COMP for free. Later, the price of ETH and COMP pumped at the same time, that’s profit for me.
For instance, let’s say I staked $50 Ethereum to earn COMP.
After a month, I have earned a free 0.004 COMP…
The COMP that I earned is FREE, and I will make money if I sell it. Note that my ETH is still there and its price is increasing as the market is pumping.
In essence, Staking is a 2-in-1 way to make money with cryptos.
You can check on the likes of Okex, Binance and the BSC platforms for coin staking.
4. Receive Payment with Cryptos
A good but not common way to make money with Bitcoin.
If you’re a freelancer, you can simply ask your client to pay you in Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrencies. I prefer this option as a method of receiving payments from abroad as it is faster and safer.
If you worked for someone and the agreed price is $100, if you receive the money in fiat (paper currency), you can never have the same $100 in your Bank account. Why?
If you receive the money through PayPal, you’ll be charged by PayPal if you are withdrawing directly. And if you are exchanging the funds, you will lose some money due to the exchange rate and the exchanger’s commission on the transaction.
Same thing applies to receiving the money through a freelancing website, most of them charge 20% fee. That’s $80 left and the payment processor will still take theirs.
But if you receive the $100 through Bitcoin, Ethereum, you will have more than that $100 in a few days, if you can HODL and even proceed to STAKE it.
5. Become an Exchanger
There’s money in this business, but you need to have money to make the money.
Some people want to SELL Bitcoin while some others want to BUY. What if you cover the distance between these BUYERS and SELLERS?
You buy from the SELLER at a particular price and SELL to the BUYER at a higher rate.
Let’s say you bought Bitcoin at the rate of P500 per USD, you can sell to the person that wants to buy Bitcoin from you at the rate of P540 per USD… Meaning, you will make P40 on every dollar transacted.
NOTE: P is your local currency such as Naira, Rupees, Cedis etc.
Let’s say you bought $100 worth of Bitcoin at P500, that’s P50,000 spent, right?
If another person comes to you to buy $100 worth of Bitcoin, and you sell at P540 per USD, that’s P54,000 – meaning you’ve just made P4,000 profits.
That’s just a peak of how a (local) exchanger like this TrueXgold.com makes money with Bitcoin and other cryptos.
Do you know that you can HODL and STAKE in the process (before someone shows interest in buying from you)…?
I once sold $60 worth of ETH because I needed money urgently.
Do you believe that ETH pumped massively the second day? Hadn’t been I haven’t sold the ETH, I would have made more than $100 (about $40 profit).
Well, the exchanger got the profit.
Another great way to make money with Bitcoin as an exchanger;
If you have some money to invest, you can hire developers to develop an exchange platform like Binance, Hotbit, Buycoins etc., for you.
But it requires a lot of processes and money to be spent on the development and marketing team.
You should have a minimum of $30,000 for this project.
You can try the local exchanging business and see how it works.
6. Crypto Faucets
Without much ado, Crypto faucets let you earn FREE coins or tokens by completing a given task.
Sometimes, it can be to play games online and earn very small tokens as reward.
A good example of websites that offer this type of rewards is Freebitco.in where you will be given free satoshis (small amount of bitcoin).’
You can also get Brave browsers and engage in some of the opportunities that pop to you.
Do more research on this, there are many apps and websites that reward free tokens by completing simple tasks.
7. Crypto Mining Pool
Just like hidden treasures like Gold and Silver are mined, cryptocurrencies can also be mined but not with the spade or digger. You need strong machines and hardware to mine cryptocurrencies
Another best way to make money with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is to mine them.
Setting up this machine is a bit technical and expensive.
But, you can also find some platforms (websites or platforms) where you can mine cryptos or tokens for free without setting up any machine.
An example is Stormgain, where you can start mining bitcoin with a small fee.
Do your research on this too.
8. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing needs no introduction, but if you don’t know anything about it, kindly read this post on what’s affiliate marketing and how to be successful at it.
The easiest way to make money with Bitcoin and other crypto is affiliate marketing.
You don’t need to spend anything than recommending a platform to someone through your unique affiliate link and you earn commission if the person takes action.
Almost all crypto exchange platforms have this feature.
For instance, Okex will give you $30 if you invite your friend to BUY cryptocurrency on the platform. Binance, Hotbit, Bundle Africa, Luno and others have theirs.
Imagine you referred 20 people to BUY their cryptos on OKEX with your affiliate link, and 5 people actually take action, that’s $30 x 5 = $150 for you.
Affiliate marketing in crypto is a side hustle though.
You can also try Airdrops.
I don’t really want to talk about this because most of them are FAKE and others are pure scam. But nevertheless, some people who’re lucky enough, still make money with Airdrops.
So, DYOR (Do Your Own Research) on Airdrops and how to make money with it.
CONCLUSION: What’s the best way to make money with bitcoin (cryptos) in 2021?
I have highlighted 8 ways you can make money with cryptocurrencies and this applies to anybody irrespective of your location, either Nigeria, USA, India or Italy.
But try as much as possible to avoid being scammed.
If you don’t know something, Google is your friend, read and consume a lot of information online and if you have the money, get a mentor.
Kindly note that FOREX including Cryptocurrency trading or engaging in it is risky, so don’t borrow money to invest and don’t invest more than you can afford to lose.
Those are the ways to make money with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
