Buying Credits, Dcalpha packs, CUB, CAKE, staking VITE and going passive
During the pre-sale of the Chaos league packs, I was able to get 4 packs using vouchers on the game, then when the Voucher airdrop stopped, I sold the 0.6 I had and got one extra pack on Hive-engine. I still had some cash after I made the purchase, I felt wise.
I know the only downside of that is I'll be one pack short from my airdrop qualification but I've never been so lucky with these things so I don't bother so much anymore.
I spent about $20 on the purchase of my packs and when I opened them on the 9th of December the cards I got were only worth about $30. I felt a little bad but I try not to be ungrateful so I just moved on.
When I made the decision to spend less and start investing a little more, I got a little lost on what to do and how I could utilize my little resources to the fullest. So, I had a talk with my brother, as I always do when I need counsel.
First off, he reminded me of how dumb I've been for not taking profits and hoarding more stable coins. I have to admit, I always thought I was wise. I hardly hold onto any stable coin asides from HBD because I consider the rest to be too accessible. So, he told me to move all my profits that I don't have an immediate use for into my HBD savings.
Right after the talk about stable coins, we had a long talk about Splinterlands and how I need to be ready for the end of the second phase of the Chaos legion sales. He explained it to me, and then later I took to Splinterlands to read all about it for myself.
He advised I begin stacking Splinterland credits, so I did. At first, I used DEC to purchase about 15,000 but then I realized it wasn't a good idea so I stopped. Later on, I received 250 Leo from @leofinance so I used a little over 100 Leo to purchase about 20,700 credits making my overall credits to be over 35,700.
My target was 100,000 so I removed some HBD from my savings and purchased 65,000 more credits, surpassing my target just a little. At least this way I'll be ready for when the second phase ends and I'll be able to buy more packs than I was previously able to.
I'm also receiving the Vouchers daily. Haven't quite figured out what I'll do with them yet but we'll see. I hear they're pretty scarce so maybe they'll be worth a fortune soon enough.
Getting out of Hive
I complained to my brother a bit about how the majority of my funds were circulating around Hive and Hive based projects. I have no problem with that, I just feel like it's not enough. I need to diversify properly outside of the Blockchain.
My blockhead had no idea I'd been doing that by staking CUB, so when he explained a little more to me, I used 100 Leo I received for a job I did for someone and I invested it CAKE, then I added another 100 Leo form the rewards I got from Leofinance to buy some more CAKE. It's not a lot but it's a great start. I staked my CAKE in Kingdoms and I receive really little rewards over a period of time.
The next thing I talked about was VITE. After I read this post post by @forexbrokr I decided to look into staking VITE. I had gotten it sometime this year but it was just sitting prettily in my Binance wallet so I decided to make it a bit useful to me by staking it on the VITE DEX.
I only have about $11 worth so I don't mind playing around with it.
My gaming story
I'm finally laying my Splinterlands to rest. Or am I?
I finally made the decision to rent out all my Splinterlands cards. It's been a little stressful putting them up on the market as I try to be a little meticulous and considerate as I decide on how much I would prefer to rent my cards against the prices I see there. I try not to go below the lowest asking price and just stay somewhere between the top 5 prices that could keep me safe on the market.
After completing this renal, I'll be beginning a new Splinterlands story with one of my sub-accounts. I'll be playing only when I can and not as often as I felt I had to with my main account. I realized I always felt pressured because I had a lot of cards just lying around and I haven't been very consistent lately so it sort of felt like my money was being wasted.
Finally, I've been investing in Dcalpha packs. I like how passive Dcrops is. It barely takes more than 10 minutes of my time and I don't get to do anything most days. I've gotten up to 10 packs since I started playing and I'll definitely be getting more in the near future.
I decided to give Gods Unchained a chance but between my personal work, freelance articles and bad health lately, I've had to put it on hold. Hopefully, I'll get back to it when I feel better.
In the meantime, I'm trying to arrange my life in order to accommodate some new skills I'll be acquiring soon. I believe in starting the new year before it begins so I think it makes sense that I begin my journey into programming before the year ends, wish me luck.
I've got a lot on my mind lately, but as always, I'm making sure I don't feel pressured to push myself beyond what I can handle.
Thanks for reading!
