WAYS TO MAKE PASSIVE INCOME IN NIGERIA

  1. Start Crурtоcurrency business:

When I talk about cryptocurrency business, I’m not talking about money-doubler scheme. I am talking about crypto trading, creating news sites for listing ICOs, predicting and many more.

HОW DО УОU MАKЕ PАЅЅIVЕ INCOME THROUGH CRYPTOCURRENCY BUSINESS?

Thеrе are many ways tо make passive income from cryptocurrency. If уоu аrе among those who hаѕ been neglecting this new opportunity, it’ѕ time to stop overlooking it and get involve in cryptocurrency business.

Obviouslу, the next question will be; how do I get started?  what is the right step to follow? Day-to-day trading оr соnѕtаntlу buуing new ICOѕ is just one way to start. Hоwеvеr, thеrе аrе many other wауѕ tо gеnеrаtе passive income through сrурtосurrеnсiеѕ that will not put your money in high risk. Thеѕе methods rаngе frоm semi-passive, which tаkеѕ a little time, tо tоtаl соmmitmеntѕ, which dо nоt еvеn tаkе time. It depends on оn your сарitаl.

Now, lets talk about  in detail these wауѕ tо gеnеrаtе passive income through сrурtосurrеnсiеѕ that will not put your money in high risk. They include;

  • Staking (low risk)
  • Buy and hold (low but high in some cases)
  • Creating news sites specifically for cryptocurrencies (very low risk)
  • Creating sites for Listing ICOs (low risk)
  • Trading

Staking: Is called Proof-of-stake. It states that a person can mine or validate block transactions based on how many crypto coins he or she holds. This means that the more Bitcoin or altcoin you owned as a miner, the more mining power you have (please, this is not doubler). The best proof of stake coins is Dash coin, stratis, electra and reddcoin. Although, there are few others ones but they’re not popular.

Buy and hold: If you are too busy with work or you don’t just want to stress yourself at all, then look out for cheap cryptocurrencies to buy and hold. Do your research. Before you invest, I recommend that you read their white papers, check out for social media buzz, check for analysis sites – I usually use cryptonomicsafrica or tradingview. I usually use them to analyse before I invest. I was among the persons that bought bitcoin last year January when it was $450 and sold it when it was $20,000 December.

Create Crypto News Site: creating crypto news site is another way of making passive income online through cryptocurrency. You can create  crypto news blog site using wordpress. Adding some professional design and displaying real-time crypto prices on site can help distinguish your site. You can achieve this using wordpress plugins or check out ‘coinratecap’. They have some nice widgets to display crypto prices.

Read this; How to Create a Blog if you want to know more on how to create a blog using wordpress.

Create sites for Listing ICOs: creating site that provides services like ICO predict, crypto prices using coinmarketcap api and listing ICOs is also another way to make passive income from cryptocurrency.

I contacted CCN.com 5days ago to enquire the cost of listing ICOs on their site and they replied saying – $2,000 for listing each ICO.

See proof ⇓

CCN.COM ICOs listing price on Ways to make passive income in Nigeria

When I went through their site; I saw more than 100 ICOs listed on their site. If you calculate this (100 x 2,000) that gives $200, 000. Is this kind of investment  not worth taking? It is 100% worth taking.

Trade Cryptos : Crypto trading simply means buying crypto coin when the coin rate is low and selling when the price is high. For trading, I recommend poloniex.com. Note that crypto trading can make you millionaire over night and also make you loose your money too. So, do your research proper and trade carefully.

Bеfоre уоu start investing in сrурtоcurrency, I advice you check out cryptocurrency prices аt coinratecap or coinmarketcap where уоu will gеt all thе infоrmаtiоn about the рriсе of сrурtосurrеnсiеѕ.

So,  you aren’t a crypto enthusiast? Ok, check out this other ways to make passive income in 2018 that are viable;

  1. Become an Uber or Taxify
  2. Start your Own facebook group
  3. Become Real estate agent
  4. Become a Freelancer

I’m going to be brief in explaining these. I assumed that you already have the basic knowledge.

  1. Become an Uber or Taxify:

You can make money on Uber or Taxify in two ways. If you are a car owner, you can register on uber as a driver with your car. I suggest you register with a Toyota corolla 2008-2010 because it doesn’t consume much fuel. Get an insurance license in-case of unforeseen circumstances.

Don’t want to drive the car yourself? You can get a driver to handle this for you and reach an agreement with the person. There are many people looking to drive uber cars. So , it will be easy to get a driver.

How much can one be making on weekly basis as Uber or taxify drive?

“As uber or taxify driver, you can be making up to N70,000-100,000 weekly”, an uber driver I confronted told me. But if employ a driver, you will making N35,000 weekily as result of  fuel, maintenance and driver fee. This passive income generation is common in Lagos, Abuja and many other big cities in Nigeria. You can start it in your own city now that it is still new and profit from it.

  1. Start your own facebook group:

You don’t have money at all to invest in any business. Then create a facebook group and grow it. Many people will want to pay to advertise on your group. There are many groups doing this like Igboist group and seerity group. search for these groups join and see what they are doing.

  1. Become Real Estate agent:

Real estate agents makes quite good money. Imagine when you sell or rent a house and make 25%.

  1. Become Freelancer :

Freelance writing is online business anybody can do in as much you can read and write. Though, it may take a bit expertise to be a good freelance writer. Start providing freelance writing service to people and earn passive income on the process. Are you good in SEO, social media marketing or web designer? You can become a freelancer too. There are many skills you can offer. Even, you can be paid for commenting. Register on either fiverr or freelancer.com and start making passive income.

In-conclusion, there are many other ways to make passive income in 2018 that I have not list here. However, the above 5 Ways of Making Passive Income could form your basis.
