Crypto Experiments

Something I personally have started doing alongside managing Rolly Dino Studios is that I have begun experimenting with cryptocurrencies. Initially I was met with success, right up until the major slump that most people are probably at least vaguely aware has hit both the crypto and stock markets (the latter less-so from what I have seen). Frankly, I don't see these dips in value of both stocks and crypto's as anything but an opportunity to leverage my principal cash, buying more now per dollar than I could have a month ago, with the reasonable expectation that at some point the value of these token goods will increase and result in profits down the road.


One of the things I have been doing with crypto (besides hope that the rate of profit outpaces the rate of inflation), is use the BlockReward platform, a survey-site that rewards your survey-completions with an in-system crypto that you can then redeem. I simply pick a survey to see if it's still available, and if it is, I answer the proffered questions to the best of my ability and if my demographics qualify, I get a little something added to my BlockReward wallet.


Pros: The upside is that it's a relatively low-effort way to accumulate crypto-currencies without having to actually spend your own money.


Cons: There's two of them, but it's up to each individual to decide whether they outweigh the pro above.

1. Their in-system crypto (b) is tied directly to the USD, meaning that as inflation strips the dollar's buying power, so does BlockReward's currency. Given that it's a 1000b:$1 ratio,
