by | May 24, 2018 | Earning in Bitcoin, News | 2 comments

Perhaps you have been made to believe in the idea of Bitcoin being a total scam, and have vowed never to have anything to do with it including earning it for free. 

Everyone who has recently tried pitching the idea of investing in Bitcoin to you has been met with a big  NO as an answer.

Does that sound like you? Believe me, you’re not alone.

Speaking of Bitcoin trading, I personally had a terrible experience trading Bitcoins right until these 20 Crypto Trading Tools came to my rescue.

However, in this beginner’s guide, we are not trading, so you have nothing to be wary of. All we need to do is curate some extra income from the back door.

This tutorial will walk you through the process of earning Bitcoins in a way you never thought possible. Believe me,  all you need is a hobby.

How To Turn Your Hobbies Into Bitcoin

This tutorial will be of utmost benefit to those who share my hobby (writing).

However, if you have not yet defined or found your hobby, I advise you to close your eyes, take a deep breath, pick one and continue reading.

Okay, believing that the second set of people has found their passion, let’s move on.


I am not a fan of get rich quick schemes or those that insinuate you can earn $2000BTC in a day or week. I myself haven’t earned that much yet, so I don’t know how to teach you an overnight success strategy to earn you that much, neither have I seen one.
All you will be learning today is what has worked, and is still working.
So, it is only you that can write the amount on your cheque. Hope that is okay for you?
