If you have been using the internet for a while now, you should be familiar with freelancing. Freelance sites have been there since the beginning of the internet. They provide a platform for clients to find qualified individuals to complete tasks for them. This can range from programming, graphic design, data entry, content writing, online marketing, coding and more. Today, freelancers are able to take advantage of decentralized payment systems. There are many platforms today where online workers can work and get paid in Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and other forms of digital coins. Popular websites that pay freelancers in crypto coins including XRP include Bitgigs, Cryptogrind, xbtFreelancer and Subreddit Jobs4Bitcoins. These are among the most reliable platforms. Many other blockchain-based freelance platforms have come and closed down. A few more have not received the attention required.
Faucets are sites that reward individuals with a small amount of digital currency for completing a certain assignment. Simply put, the user gets paid in XRP for performing a certain activity like viewing an ad, signing up for a newsletter, clicking through some captchas etc. However, crypto faucets are not get-rich-quick schemes as only small amounts of the digital currency is rewarded. While you cannot earn much here, it can be enough to get a feeling of owning some XRP. Also, when the price of the currency goes up, the value of those small amounts of the coin earned when the coin as at its lowest point could become a huge amount in the long run. Faucets are a great way to earn Ripple and other cryptocurrencies. But before you get started to beware of faucet scams. There are many scammy faucets out there.
Earn XRP by completing micro tasks
You can earn Ripple XRP by completing small freelance tasks. A popular micro task is completing surveys. There are many companies out there that want to collect information about a certain topic. You can help them answer a few questions. Companies may need this information in order to improve their services or to sell this information to third parties. There are also other micro tasks like playing games, downloading an app, reading emails, etc. Get-paid.com is one of the pay per action sites that have been around for quite a long time. Opened back in 2005, the site still gets a decent traffic up to this day. The platform makes money by getting users to complete simple tasks. You are paid a percentage of the income that the website makes. The site can pay you to watch videos, click ads and taking surveys. However, it takes quite a lot of time to earn anything significant.
Accept Ripple XRP and other crypto coins if you are a merchant
Another great way to earn XRP is accepting them in exchange for your products and services. As a merchant, you have access to many cryptocurrency payment processors that can help you accept digital money. Even e-commerce sites and online businesses can adopt this method, thus getting the dual benefit of cryptocurrency price increase as well as earning digital coins directly.
Blogging or writing on Cryptocurrency
You can earn Ripple and other crypto coins by simply blogging or writing on sites that pay you in digital currencies. There’s an ever increasing number of blogs and news websites that require dedicated writers to write about Ripple and other crypto-related content on a regular basis. You can choose whether you want to be paid in real-world currencies, or Ripple (XRP).
There are not many ways to earn XRP online. It is worth bearing in mind that freelancing requires some knowledge. Regardless of the method you choose, you still need to have a secure place to store your hard-earned XRP.
