If you’re reading this blog then there is a good chance that you love to watch and talk about sport. If you’re anything like me then you probably spend a significant part of your life chatting with friends about cricket, football and many other games whether in-person or on social media.
Now what if I told you that all those online interactions could earn you money! Imagine getting paid to talk about sport…
It used to be that only very few sports fans could earn from their love of the game but now with web 3.0 becoming a reality everyone has the chance to make money by contributing to the debate.
Consider this, when you talk about sport on Facebook or Twitter or any other social media platform or website, the people who make money off your ideas and insight are usually the site owners themselves. When you think about it that’s not a very fair system, they are making the money while you do the work. This model is now universally accepted as simply being “the way things are” but it doesn’t need to be that way.
Web 3.0 is looking to revolutionise the internet and how people contribute and consume content by redistributing money to everyone helps to add that content.
The Hive blockchain is one such project and within the wider community there exists the Sports Talk Social tribe, a group of individuals dedicated to writing and talking about sport. What is more, every time someone in the community talks about sport or reads someone else’s thoughts about it then they can be rewarded using the blockchains native tokens (HIVE and HBD).
How much can you earn?
That really depends on how much you are willing to contribute but I post on average about 3 or 4 blogs a week plus reading and commenting on other people’s blogs and that earns me approximately $2000 USD per year.
Here are a few of my blogs over the last couple of months that have earned on average $40 each.
It’s not a huge or life changing sum of money but for talking about sport (which I would do for free anyway) then it suits me just fine!
How much does it cost to join?
Nothing! It’s absolutely free to join the Hive blockchain
All you need to sign up is an email account or phone number.
However, when your account is small you are limited to the number of activities that you can do on the blockchain. The good news is that there are plenty of people around to help you. So if you do need some additional Hive Power and resource credits early on then you can contact me either in the comments section of this blog or on the Hive blockchain itself and I’ll send you some resources to help you get started.
