Another nice quiet weekend around here

That never bothers me.
The quieter the better.
Going to jump right into my progress report for this week.


Two Buy Days This Week!

1/15: Invested an extra 15 USD on Litecoin on 1/15 to trade and get enough Hive to buy Leo and power up 150 Leo for LPUD.
I sent $13.35 USD worth of Litecoin to Blocktrades.us to trade for Hive.
Received 37.595 Hive and deposited it to Hive Engine for Swap.Hive using the Swap feature on HivePay.io.
I got 37.520 worth of Swap.Hive after a fee of 0.075

1/19: Did my regular weekly buy a day early this week. Dad had a Dr. appointment on Friday so I wanted to be done ahead of time.

My fiat investment was 16 USD and I received 14.37 USD worth of Litecoin to trade for Hive tokens using Blocktrades.us.

Received 39.856 Hive from Blocktrades and used the Swap feature on Hivepay.io to deposit them to Swap.Hive in my Hive Engine wallet. Deposit was 39.776 after a fee of 0.080 Hive.

Did a few more trades and ended up with 39.96056379 Swap.Hive to invest

Getting Ready for a Snowy Couple of Days Here in the Midwest

The last few snow events haven’t amounted to very much here in Southeast, Wisconsin. But this time we are supposed to get several more inches than the northern parts of the state.

Yesterday, I was out for lunch with a friend who I haven’t seen for awhile.
After that I went to the store to pick up some stuff we needed for cooking this weekend.

I found a recipe for risotto that can be done in the slow cooker so I don’t have to stand by the stove and stir it constantly.
We are having that with a lamb breast plate that will be cooked on the grill by my husband. It looks like a rack of ribs but lamb not pork or beef. He seasoned it yesterday so it will be very flavorful by the time he cooks it. We never had this cut of lamb before so it should be interesting to see how it turns out. We saw it in the Aldi sale flyer for this week. They get some unusual items in that store.

Tomorrow we are having crispy baked chicken wings for dinner during the Chiefs and Bengals playoff game. We haven’t figured out the rest of that meal yet. And to be honest, I probably will only watch the game for as long as it takes to have dinner and get the kitchen cleaned up.

On to the weekly Hive token stacking update…


Friday Buy Day 1/27/2023

My dollar cost averaging got a little boost this week. I was able to earn some extra Crypto ($3.00 USD worth of KAVA) on Coinbase.
And I invested my regular $16 USD for LTC
I had to convert the KAVA to LTC in order to send it to Hive.
I sent a total of $17.28 USD worth of LTC to Blocktrades for Hive tokens.

There was 0.00198301 Swap.Hive sitting in my wallet on Hive Engine. And like usual I used the Swap feature in HivePay.io to send 41.134 Hive tokens to Swap.Hive. After a fee of 0.082 Hive, 41.052 Swap.Hive were deposited in to my Hive Engine wallet
Then I did a few more trades to end up with 41.87522515 Swap.Hive to reinvest,



I am still holding the CTP tokens I am earning in their liquid form right now. I am not sure if I will need them staked or liquid to participate in the new CTP project.

27,017.45 (135%) increase in BBH token holdings this week
Surpassed the goal of 30000 that I set last week
Next goal is 65000 BBH
17,978.55 away from that
72% of goal achieved

50000 BBH holdings will allow me to tip 50 BBH tokens per day which is the highest level. But I am also earning Swap.Hive each week for my holdings.
So, I won’t be stopping at 50000 BBH.


That’s all for this week.


Hive Power Up Day for February 1st is only a couple of days away.

I missed the first one for this year. The plan is to not miss anymore.
That means that my buying priorities will change for the 1st and the 15th (LEO PUD) of each month going forward.

Enjoy the rest of your day and the weekend.

See you next time.

How to Create a Tracker in Pelytics


Pelytics is a tracking program created by @blainjones and @jongolson. They launched it in the back office of my program, The Pizza Plan.

I have been spending time learning how to use it for a little while now.

So I created a video to share with you how easy and simple it is to create a tracker on Pelytics.

It was a very easy choice for me to upgrade to the Ultimate Plan.

You have to decide what will work for you but with any of the upgrades you also get an upgrade to EZ Rotate.

You can create rotators there for your tracking links.

That is a video for another day.

Thanks for watching.

Hopefully you have found this video helpful.

Newbie Program Owner Lesson Video for Creating Program Walkthroughs

Blurring Doesn’t Work — YouTube Didn’t Save the Changes on My Video

The Custom Blur feature in the YouTube editing area is not at all user-friendly. I tried a few times to use it for obscuring my personal profile information in my Pizza Plan members area.

Finally, after waiting forever for my video to be processed for the third time only to find out that the blurring didn’t work, I asked the Telegram group about the best way to get that done.

That is when @blainjones answered and told me to just create a junk account with fake information.
I can do that.

I am the owner after all.

I am so new that I must have forgotten that I have seen that done elsewhere before at some point.
I was able to get my tutorial done and posted. It was very easy after learning that.

Thank you,@rcaine for your helpful feedback about the recording volume on my Pizza Plan walk-through video.

So, I have actually learned two new things.

In case you haven’t seen it, @markhodge wrote an awesome post promoting The Pizza Plan, entitled Shiny Object or Evergreen Plan.

Really appreciate the very nice review.

That is about all I have for you today!

Time for me to dive into some ListNerds curation.

Looking forward to going through my inbox there today.

Had a Whole Week of Adjusting to My New Schedule

There are Three of Us Sharing the Hours at the Reception Desk

Because of this we are all documenting what takes place on each of our shifts. Some of the tasks have to carry over to the next person’s shift.

For example, I worked Monday morning from 8 until 12:30 when my cousin came in and took over for her afternoon shift. While I was working I answered some phone calls, listened to voicemails and went through text messages. These were all on the phone, laptop and iPad of my cousin who is the CPA for whom we are working.

I wrote down the content of all the texts and voicemails and scheduled some appointments for people to come in and drop off, pick up or sit with the CPA and have their taxes done in person. As I finished each of these tasks I crossed them off the list I created. Part of the issue is that the synching between the devices isn’t the best. So when I deleted a voicemail from the phone it still appeared on the laptop. That is one of the reasons that writing everything down is necessary. And we are keeping these notes in case there are any questions from clients in the future. All of these notes go to the CPA so that as he has time he can make the calls that he needs to make. He does come and check periodically to make sure that there is nothing he has to take care of urgently. He is really good about being available to answer questions.

Anyway, last Monday, when my cousin who is the CPA’s mother-in-law, came in for her shift we went over all my notes from the morning. And later that afternoon some of the messages that I deleted from the phone came up on the laptop. So she texted me to make find out what appointments I had scheduled. I had taken the notes I took home with me so I was able to refer back to them. But now we are leaving everything in a folder at the front desk with the date and who was working that day.

So What is the Lesson I Learned for My Business?

Bitmoji Image

I have been keeping daily track of my progress with my goals. Taking notes everyday on what I earned, what I staked and the new totals. I am hoping that this will help me with creating my post for the week. I think it will because prior to this I was spending at least an hour or more trying to find the information and now I have my notes in front of me while I am working on this post.

I never really saw the need for documenting my work or it just didn’t sink in until now. Even though I am the only one working on my business, having it written/typed out will help me see how far I have come at the end of the year. An inducement to keep going and not give up.

Progress on my Goals for the Last Week 2/12 through Today!

My focus is still mainly on Hive Power and HE-Index. I did veer slightly away from HE-Index this week though. I chose, instead, to use my fiat this week to power up Hive to get closer to Dolphin status.

I also bought two more CHAOS packs this week that I will hold on to so that I can sell them later on. I am not opening them. Since I am not playing the game I would rather just get the passive income.

My fiat investment went a little further this week because I didn’t do my weekly Hive purchase until this morning and Hive had dropped below $1 per token. That wasn’t on purpose. I just never got around to buying any crypto yesterday.

CTP Power Increased in CTPtalk and List Nerds

When List Nerds launched last month I powered down 10K CTP tokens to transfer to List Nerds and stake them there. That was so that I could have more voting power in both places. Right now on List Nerds I have over 400 votes that I can use every day verify emails in my inbox on the platform. That earns me more CTP tokens and Mail tokens.

This last week I have increased my CTP staked on CTP talk to 43,349.484 from the 43,111.047 that I started with on 2/12. That is an increase of 238.438 or around 0.55% and about 86% of the 50K plus that it was before I sent the 10k over to List Nerds.

On List Nerds I have 11,149.368 CTP staked. An increase of 52.739 or 0.475% CTP staked from last week. I am staking the CTP tokens that I earn on List Nerds in List Nerds and the CTP tokens that I earn on CTPtalk in CTPtalk.

Still Waiting to for Last Week’s Email to be Verified on List Nerds

But from last week to today I staked a total of 5.922 additional ListNerds tokens. That was just from what I earned by having ListNerds staked. The only place you can stake them is on the List Nerds platform. Last week’s email should be verified tomorrow or so. It takes 7 to 10 days for that to happen.

I increased my ListNerds stake by roughly 14% from last week to today.

And my click through rate on last week’s email was a bit higher than the week before.

And now the email is verified so I am just waiting to see how many ListNerds tokens it will earn. The payouts happen anywhere from 7 to 10 days after your email is sent.

This next week I will be making use of the auto mailer feature in List Nerds. I have access to it because I have the Business level membership. After I am done with this post I will be going back there to read the emails in my inbox.

My Journey to Dolphin Status

Animal, Dolphin, Mammal, Marine, Drawing

My purchase of Hive this week was 14.833 and I powered those tokens up. Between what I earned this week, 8.166 and what I bought and staked, my Hive Power is at 4,536.640 HP today.

Hive Power 2/12: 4,512.872

Hive Power 2/19: 4,536.640

Increase of 23.768 or 0.53%

Percent of 5000: 90.7%

That is All for this Week!

Have a great rest of your weekend. I am off to finish my other tasks for today!

Change in my Daily Personal Schedule So I am Changing My Update Day!

Doing Some Reception Work During Tax Season

That is the change in my personal schedule that brought about the timing change for this post.

My cousin’s son-in-law is a CPA and she started helping him in his office last year with one or two other people. One of the ladies they hired this year wasn’t able to work after all because of her commitments. So, they thought of asking me and I am very grateful.

Never hurts to have a little extra coming in. Even if it is only temporary. I got the job in the old school way like when I was in high school and after. Hey, I need help in my business for so many hours a week. Can you do it? Yeah, great when do I start? How about this week Friday? Perfect. See you then.

It wasn’t exactly like that. But there was no interview needed. Like I said I have pretty regular contact with these cousins. I worked yesterday from 8 am till 1 pm. And I will be working there for about 12 to 15 hours a week till April 15th. I like that too. A nice little temp gig to do something different and help out family. They pay isn’t bad either.

Yeah, I am having to get used to my schedule and routine changing. I think that is good in some ways. Knocks me off my comfort zone for a bit. That is another reason why I agreed to do it. When I told my sisters that I was going to be doing this, they of course were happy to hear it. The youngest of us who knows my daily routine mentioned that I won’t be able to wear sweats and pajamas. LOL But the dress code is still pretty relaxed.

And Now to My Financial Update on Hive

The work for this post started yesterday afternoon. When I logged in to Coinbase there were a few videos to watch to earn 3 dollars in RNDR tokens. Render is a block-chain based graphics rendering program. The other task to earn another 4 dollars I just completed this morning. I will use that toward my crypto purchases this next week.

I always take advantage of watching those because they give a little boost to my dollar cost average fiat investment. And the 4 dollars was earned by downloading the Coinbase Wallet app and connecting it to Coinbase. Having the Coinbase Wallet gives you custody of your crypto. Couldn’t figure out yesterday why it was taking so long for the connection to happen between Coinbase and the Coinbase Wallet. So this morning while I was working on this post I decided to add the Coinbase App to my phone and the Coinbase Wallet to my Chrome browser. I am sure why but not long after I did that the connection completed and I received my 4 dollars.

This Week’s Hive Power Progress

I did my usual weekly purchase of Litecoin with $12.50 and that with the $3 in RNDR converted to Litecoin as well gave me about 12 and a half Hive. This week’s Hive I powered up to get me to 4,512.872 HP

Hive Power Last Friday 2/4/2022: 4,486.628 HP

Hive Power as of Today, 2/12/2022: 4,512.872

Increase of 26.244 for the week. Or a 0.58 percent increase. That’s really small. But still in the right direction.

And now I am at 90% of my Dolphin Goal.

Didn’t Accumulate Many More HE-Index Tokens This Week.

I only increased my Index holdings to 1,332.3. So, next week the 1500 goal of Index will be my focus.

At this point I am 88 percent there. The 4 dollars I earned from that task on Coinbase is going toward buying Index this week.

Finally got My First Email Verified in List Nerds!!!

I checked my account this morning before I started writing this post. With that I earned 10.127 LISTNERDS tokens. So with the price of LISTNERDS at 2 dollars per token I earned 20 dollars for one email.

I was pretty excited to see that.

On the Crypto Monday Webinar this last week (2/7), Jon and Blain were talking about why earning and staking LISTNERDS and CTP tokens on the List Nerds Platform is so important. Watch the replay by clicking here : https://fb.watch/b7EyiIPlE7/ or on the screenshot.

I had 0.594 LISTNERDS ready to claim from daily activity plus what I earned from the verified email. When you claim your LISTNERDS it gets staked automatically. I have been doing that every day.

When ListNerds was launched I unstaked 10K CTPtokens and brought them over to ListNerds to stake them. The CTP tokens you have in ListNerds give you voting power. So you can earn CTP in List Nerds by voting for other people’s emails to help get them verified.

As of today, I have 11,096.629 CTP tokens staked in ListNerds which allows me to vote on 443 emails in my inbox on ListNerds. And then I will earn more CTP from voting on and helping to verify emails. I will be claiming and staking 6 more CTP tokens within ListNerds today from what I did yesterday. Time to upvote verify more emails.

Any CTP tokens I Have Been Earning on the CTPtalk Platform Are Being Staked There

I want to build that CTP power back up to over 50K. That is where it was before I transferred 10K to ListNerds. I am very happy that I had the tokens available to do that. It only took 7 days to get them unstaked to transfer over. I have 63 CTP tokens waiting to be staked right now.

Until the last 2 plus years that I have been here on the Hive blockchain, I never believed that I could earn money from just being active, engaged and not harassing people to buy stuff.

That is all I have for this week. See you next Saturday for a new update. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Buying All HE-Index This Week

Last Week I Bought and Staked Hive

But this week the focus is back on increasing my HE-Index Holdings.

There was already just over 3 Swap Hive in my Hive Engine wallet from selling other tokens yesterday. I bought 10 Hive with my fiat investment and traded 0.055 HBD for 0.051 Hive. I used HivePay Swap to deposit all of that into Hive Engine.

My HE-Index holdings were at 1310.320 last week at this time. I bought 18 more HE-Index this week. So now I have 1328.302. The first buy I did tried didn’t go all the way through. I was able to buy 2 more Index at the bid I used and the rest was sitting in the Open Orders.

I ended up cancelling order and offering a little bit more to get the order to go through for 16 more Index. I am not sure how it might have taken to get it to go through otherwise.

Next Goal: 1500 HE-Index Tokens

Last Week’s Holdings: 1310.320

This Week’s Holdings: 1328.302

Percent Increase From Last Week: 1.3723%

Percent of 1500 HE-Index Goal: 88.5%

Claimed Hive Power Rewards This Week

My Hive Power holdings grew a little bit from curating and commenting on posts. My HP was at 4,476.790 HP. This week I have 4,486.628 HP.

Next Goal: 5000 HP

Last Week’s HP: 4,476.790

This Week’s HP 4,486.628

An increase of 9.838 or about 0.2197%

Percent of 5000 HP Goal: 89.7%

Truth Time!

I had to get help from my husband to do the math for the percent increase. He is a very patient man. I was math phobic all through school. When I went back to college I took enough Algebra to get my requirement in for the University. I declared History as my major so I really didn’t need a whole lot of math for that. We were allowed to use calculators even during tests at that time.

When I went back to the same University in 2016 to try and get yet another degree, I had to take the same math classes over again. But they weren’t allowing students to use calculators. It was advised for the homework that we not use them and they were forbidden to be used on the tests. Who the heck does math without a calculator? Not me!

I ended up deciding against getting another degree that I didn’t need and probably would never use. Not just because of the math. Partly because of that. But it was more about the simple truth that I didn’t need to add another headache in my life and another 4 or more years of school in my 50s. Besides I like being here on Hive and learning the way I am now. Not for a degree or grades, but for the pleasure of learning new things.

That is All I Have For This Week’s Update!

We did get a couple of nice letters from Internal Revenue Service today. Just letting us know that the Stimulus money we received will not be counted as taxable income. We don’t have to report it. Yay for that. It’s unusual to get good news like that from them. Have a great weekend and week ahead.

Moved the Needle a Little Bit More Today to Reach Dolphin Status in Hive

Increased My HE-Index Holdings Yesterday

I sold some other crypto coins in my wallet yesterday and used some liquid Hive that I had left over from last week. I ended up buying just over 9 He-Index tokens. My Index holdings as of today are at 1,310.320. That brings me to 87% of my next goal which is 1500 HE-Index tokens. This is a great income token. I am getting passive income from all the holdings in the Index. Click on the logo to learn more about HE-Index tokens.

Today I Chose to Use My Fiat Investment to Buy and Stake Some Hive

I am really intent on getting to Dolphin status as soon as possible. The price of Hive has been staying below 1 dollar each. It seemed like a good idea to use my dollar cost average investment to stake the Hive I purchased.

My weekly investment is $12.50, which after fees gets me around $10.50 to invest. This week Coinbase had another token for me to learn about. It’s been awhile since that’s happened. And all I had to do was spend a few minutes to watch three short videos and get 3 extra dollars to invest. Between that and using 0.020 HBD to buy 0.021 Hive I ended up with 15.079 Hive to power up this week.

After I powered up the 15.079 Hive I purchased today, my total Hive Power is at 4,476.790. The needle moved. Not a bunch but in the right direction. I am now at 89.5% of my Dolphin Goal.

This Day Started Out Kind of Crazy!

We were up early like usual. It’s pretty cold here and we had to get out to the store. Headed out at around 7 am to get there and done quickly. When we got back into the car to leave, my husband tried to start it and it wouldn’t turn over. He called my Dad to let him know we were going to have to call someone to get the car going so we could get home. Then I remembered that he had the number for the owner of the place where we have been taking my car to get worked on. I told him to text him and see if he could help. The shop doesn’t open till 8 am. It was only 7:20 at that point.

As it turned out, the owner of the shop only lived a few blocks away from the grocery store where we were. He came over and got us on our way. Then he told Roy to bring the car into the shop and they would check the battery at no cost to us. He did take over there later in the morning. The battery was bad and it had to be replaced. Luckily they had a battery to fit his car in stock.

So Instead of Freaking Out I Came Up With a Solution

That got us home and able to get on with the rest of the day. That was a pretty big win for me. I took control of my emotions. Something kind of new for me for a situation like that. It did help that I wasn’t alone. It wouldn’t help anything to get all anxious. And I knew that I had work to do online plus get my Dad to two appointments today. One this morning and one this afternoon. I got home about a half hour before I started this post. I had finished my other tasks earlier. Whew!

That is all for this week. Have a great weekend and week! See you next Friday.

A Little Bonus Hive Today

It Took Me More Than A Week to Access The Old Coinbase Account

I created it with a cell phone number that I no longer use.

There were a couple of hoops I had to jump through to get access and have the phone number changed.

  1. Contact Coinbase Support
  2. Create a new account to use for ID verification. With this I had to take pictures of my Driver’s License front and back and a selfie. This is the part that took the longest. It wasn’t made clear that I didn’t have to be in the picture with my license pictures. Before that I couldn’t figure out why my camera wasn’t working and it just showed the OBS logo with a line through it. Turned out that I needed to turn on the virtual camera in OBS studio.
  3. Once all that was done and my ID verified they changed the phone number in my account and closed the spare account.
  4. I logged into the account I am trying to close and found out that I had funds in there to transfer out first. This was sort of fun though because I got some extra Hive tokens from converting Bitcoin Cash to Litecoin and transferring it to my Hive wallet. It got me 7 extra Hive to Power up for my Dolphin Goal. I had some Bitcoin in there that I sent over to Freebitcoin. I also had some BSV that isn’t supported on Coinbase so I had to get an account on Freewallet to take care of transferring it. That was only a couple of dollars.

Still Waiting For the Bitcoin to Get to My Freebitcoin Wallet

I had to verify my ID again to get the transfer to happen a little faster. No gas fees though so that’s good.

And I earned 2100 sastoshis from joining a Bitcoin Magazine list called 21 Days of Bitcoin recommended by David Hurley, @hirohurl. I am signed up to his email list and that is where I learned about it. I took the quiz today after the 21 days of articles and got the satoshis in my wallet on the Carrot app. It was 20 questions. I answered 16 correctly. I also learned that I can earn more satoshis by reading articles on the Carrot app. You can download it from the Google Playstore or the App store for Apple.

When I Did My Fiat Dollar Cost Average Investment Today

Hive was right around a dollar each. That means, of course, that my investment went further today. I also already had 1.250 Hive in my wallet before I did my purchase on Coinbase today.

I earned that from engaging on posts from Jon Olson, @jongolson and Chris Scicluna, @mba2020. I was directed to those posts from emails that they sent in ListNerds. All I had to do was read their posts, make a comment and use the secret word that they put in the email. This is all about pulling in people to engage with you and building your brand rather than pushing products.

I got another 10.082 Hive to use for my purchase this week. That was from buying the Litecoin on Coinbase and sending it to my Hive wallet. But this week I had to wait to convert that to Swap.Hive. I use Hivepay Swap to do that but there was no liquidity available for a bit.

In the meantime I was selling other tokens in my wallet to get as much Swap.Hive as possible. And I got the CTP tokens that I unstaked to deposit them into ListNerds as well. That took 7 days and then I staked them in ListNerds to claim an airdrop of 2 more ListNerds tokens. I claimed on ListNerds for each 5000 CTP I staked on ListNerds.

After Selling As Many Tokens As I Could

I ended up with around 13 Hive to buy my Hive Index Tokens today. So I increased my Index Holdings to 1,301.14560206. That puts me at 87% of my next goal of 1500 Hive Index tokens.

Here is the Fun Bonus Part

Closing out the extra Coinbase Account allowed me to convert Bitcoin Cash into Litecoin and then send it to Hive.

And I had another HBD to buy one more Hive token so I powered that up as well.

So that brings my Hive Power to 4,452.121 which is 89 percent of Dolphin Status.

It was nice to be able to give a boost to two of my goals today. That is all for this week. Have a great weekend!

First Blockchain Based Mailer — The All New List Nerds has Launched!

List Nerds Has 3 tokens and 3 Ways to Earn

Two of them are crypto, ListNerds tokens and CTP tokens and the other one is Mail tokens. Mail tokens can be bought or earned. Each Mail you accumulate allows you to mail one ListNerds member. Or if you don’t have time to open mails and click on links you can simply buy Mail tokens.

ListNerds is the primary token of the mailer platform. It can be purchased on Hive Engine or another exchange then transferred to ListNerds and staked there to earn passively. Or you can earn it by verifying emails from other members with an upvote. ListNerds is the only place where you can stake ListNerds tokens.

CTP tokens are also needed to take part in the rewards at ListNerds. Those are the tokens that you earn from blogging and curating on the CTPtalk blogging platform. You need to have liquid CTP to import to ListNerds and stake it to give you more voting power.

I have powered down some of my CTPtokens so that I can transfer them to ListNerds and stake them to get more voting power and earning power. If you want to do this, it only takes 7 days to power down and get liquid CTP to move it over. For every 5000 CTPtokens that you tranfer into and stake on ListNerds you will earn an airdropped ListNerds token. The ListNerds token will be airdropped to your staked ListNerds so you don’t have to do that manually.

Please Keep in Mind

If you transfer and stake CTP tokens in ListNerds to get the airdropped ListNerds tokens, your CTP will be locked for 10 weeks. That is to prevent people from staking CTP tokens to get the airdrops of ListNerds and then unstaking and staking them again to get more ListNerds.

May be an image of text that says 'The Must Attend 開 × Thursday LIve Night 一 Eastern Eastern 8pm CLICK TRACKP PROFIT Webinar Of The Week!'

Here is the replay of last night’s Thursday Night Live — The List Nerds Launch where Jon and Blain go over in great detail how to navigate and use List Nerds.

After the ListNerds Overview Prizes Were Awarded

The top three people who purchased ListNerds tokens prior to the launch were had their names put on a prize wheel to win one of 3 prizes. Congratulations, to Mike Dell, Charletta Allen and Hariton Mukadafe. Check out the video starting at around minute 44 to see what they won. The three prizes were: a one year upgrade to the Business Level Membership of ListNerds, a 5000 Hive Power delegation, and a Gold Foil Legendary Chaos Legion Card. And the prizes were given randomly which made it more interesting and fun.

Finally My Update For This Week

Hive has been staying over a dollar for weeks now. When I did my dollar cost average purchase this morning it was just under $1.30 per Hive token. So, after fees on Coinbase from transferring and trading I ended up with a little over 8 Hive tokens. With what was already available in my pegged Hive on Hive Engine I had a little more than 10 Hive to buy my tokens this week.

I am focused on increasing my Hive Index holdings to my next goal of 1500 and getting to Dolphin Status on Hive.

Purchasing More Hive-Index Tokens for Friday Buy Day

I want those Index tokens for the passive income. Index is an income token. Just buy them and hold them to earn from all the tokens they purchase. This is really my first experience with earning passive income and I am enjoying earning the tokens and reinvesting them to get more. The returns are way more than you can earn from a regular bank. It’s really a no brainer.

Updated Index Holdings for this Week — 1,277

At 1227 Hive Index tokens, I have 85 percent of my 1500 Hive Index token goal. It won’t stop there.

Hive Power Dolphin Goal

As you can see I am getting ever closer to my Dolphin status. I just keep chipping away at it. My next plan is to get to the 1500 Hive Index put that on hold and dollar cost average as well as earn my way to Dolphin. I am at around 89 percent there or 566.434 Hive Power away. Hive is at $1.31 each so it would cost me $742.03 to buy it all right now. Not going to happen. If the price of Hive stays the same, doubtful, but if it did, it would take me another 14 months at 50 dollars per month to get there. Not willing to wait over another year to get there.

I either have to bump up my buy in or do a whole lot more creating and curating than I have been. Or both.

So, that is all for this week’s update! Have a great week and see you next week!
