In my one year stay at read.cash, I'm pretty sure I already earned Bitcoin Cash with a considerable amount. Before I just held my coin and I also spent $150 to help my mom on paying the land she purchased. Aside from that I didn't use the money anymore and just kept holding it as we still have fiat to buy our needs.
My partner always told me that this Bitcoin Cash is not real money but only a display amount in an online wallet because we never used some of it to buy our needs. I always tell him that it's real and not just for display. He wants me to spend it, while I don't want to because we still have some fiat. Why would I spend it when we have fiat to use? So I didn't and told him “Just wait for the right time, I'll spend it and you'll see that what I earned is real money. Not just some coin on the internet.”
Actually, I was waiting for the right timing to use my BCH. It's not about the “price value” but the perfect timing, wherein I will use it as my last resort. I treasured my BCH like it's my only asset, I know some will laugh but it's the only thing I have where I am proud of because I get it through my hard work and spending it should be in a necessary situation not just spending it on unnecessary things.
My partner has already drained his money after signing off the ship for almost 5 months. Our savings were all used up, our basic needs cannot wait until he is onboard so I am starting to use my BCH. Sadly I have to sell it on fiat.
Our first ever grocery, using my BCH, was worth 5, 000 PHP. We bought my daughter necessities, and have some stuff that is needed in the house.
We also bought her sandals because her footwear did not fit her anymore as her feet started to grow bigger.
Then last week I went to the grocery again using the money I got from my mom. She sent me money to keep it as she always forgets and she already lost her money before. She sent me a total of 10,000 PHP. I used the money but I already set aside .50 BCH to sell when the price is higher to replace my mom's fiat money, since she will not use it for now.
I also bought two electric fan, as our electric fan got busted, I bought new one to replace it instead of keep using aircon because the current bill sucks.
Their office called him to report, so he can have his line up. Since his money is already drained, I help him cover his expenses going back to Manila. Aside from the amount I cash out on remittance to pay for his plain ticket fare.
I've been a one year user at read.cash but I haven't bought any gift for myself, I bought new ones to transfer all my wallet being used at crypto, as my current phone already keep saying “internal storage is full” due to many apps I installed needed when I write articles or crypto wallets.
Also when my daughter wants to watch YouTube she doesn't have to disturb me, but I told her that “this is my phone, I just let you borrow for a moment, this is for my work and it's not yours” so she will not abuse and keep using mobile phone. My daughter is smart, she understands things already at her young age but sometimes she's also stubborn lol.
I've been waiting for this moment where I could spend my BCH meaningfully, not just spending for the sake of spending. I spent it with purpose and that made me feel satisfied as I don't spend much on unnecessary things.
I like saving more than spending like a one-day millionaire, I like to have money in case there is an emergency and I don't have to be in debt to someone just because I don't have any savings. I always save for the rainy days.
Now, I have already proven to my partner that BCH is real money and not just a display coin in the wallet. After sending him multiple times for his allowance while he was in Manila, I gained enough respect from him that what I am doing online is not a waste of time.
Also, I can say now that I just don't hodl BCH and wait to become a millionaire, I hodl, spend and replace the main purpose of having BCH.
