Ayeee ladies and gentlemen! How's your weekend going? I do hope you're all feeling wonderful and fabulous today and always! #04.07.21 (13:00)

I was punishing my mind to recall how I fared since the day I first heard about Bitcoin, to the times I bought and owned some, spent some, traded some, and more. My sane brain cells say "the journey has been bits of many - tumultuous, bumpy, exhilarating, rollercoaster sort of a ride." And I believe it was.

But I will not talk about that this time though, that would be another day. I'm more inclined to write about my first ride on the BCH train.

Knowledge about Bitcoin Cash

Despite being online for the most part of the previous years, I basically had zero to very, very little knowledge about the currency. Yes, I was aware it was the result of the Bitcoin hard fork and it was aimed to serve as a payment method. Around 1-2years back, I have encountered some write-ups on the controversies surrounding it. Like being referred to as a 'copycat.' I also read in passing it was splitting further into Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV (Satoshi Vision). I think it was around 2 years ago when there was some kind of universal reaction by most exchanges to delist (or not list) BCH BSV, and that to me wasn't good. And that was all I knew.

Although I have accounts in 6 different exchanges and traded conservatively on them in the past (I only trade on Binance and Okex these recent times). I honestly didn't pay any attention to Bitcoin Cash. I think the first impression of it as a copycat stuck with me, giving me some inkling to not research about it.

Encounter with Noise Cash

Some 5 months ago, I came across a post of a 'friend' on Facebook talking about earning Bitcoin Cash by just posting anything. For some reason, my curiosity didn't kick in. I just went on with trying my might in trading where my losses undermine my profits.

Hopping on the Bitcoin Cash Ride

January 23rd came, I saw this friend's post again (yes Facebook has been one source of information to me), mentioning noise cash with a screenshot of his BCH earnings. The curious side of me butted in "why not check it out and give it a go while you're not-so-busy?" So I went to create and set up my account and started posting random quotes with my own edited photos. My phone went wild with notifications during the first few days I posted and although the amounts are in cents, I felt excited. "Whoa! This must be real!" You know, that kind of reaction typical to someone who has gone through series of disappointments from online thingies? You're right, that was me and maybe others too lol!

So I went on regular posting and I was happy that I have accumulated 0.00789 on the first week (still stored on local wallet to date). I decided to switch to Safepal wallet on the second week and since have been using it for my noise cash earnings.

On my third month, I was able to accumulate 0.0319BCH on my Safepal wallet and decided to send it to my Binance account because the price of BCH then was 'mooning' as most people on the crypto space say. It went as high as $1600 to 1BCH.

Sold the same amount of BCH the same day for the price of $1,205=1BCH, making me a little over $38USDT. Not bad for something free right? Of course! Though it wasn't totally free. Time is gold and I spent some time posting and reading and sending tips to other users. So $38 is still good and I enjoyed my time too plus I got to know more beautiful souls through the platform, so it's a win-win!

From the sale, I bought about 0.07BNB. And because the minimum BNB withdrawal in Binance is 0.10BNB, I added 0.04BNB from my own holdings and then sent a total of 0.11BNB to one of my Metamask wallets thinking I would use it to buy some coins on the Binance Smart Chain specifically, PancakeSwap.

Instead of buying the good ones for keeps, I bought several sh*tcoins, got rugged too, and to this date, only 0.005BNB remains from the 0.11BNB I initially transferred.

I got the urge for quick gains when I joined a Telegram group of vibrant people who made some good money out of buying newly-launched sh*tcoins and getting rid of them (selling) really fast. Because I wasn't fast enough, I was amongst those who took the fall. At that time, I felt some kind of adrenaline rush or thrill when I do things beyond what I normally do. And chasing quick gains was one during those days lol!

I did buy Naft, which looked promising so I thought I'd just HODL it. The price shoot up like 900+% from its launching price then went spiraling down, it was too late for me to sell. Although Naft is still in the market having its own app (Nafter), the price this time is still way below my buying price. But I'm HODLing it anyway.

PooCoin was a good buy though, bought it at $4.25 a piece, and sold them at $8. But then those gains including the capital were spent back on FEG, TCG, WOLF etc and they now lie idle on that Metamask address waiting for some miracle to happen lol!

There went my first few months of noise cash earnings down the drain! Lesson #1000001 learned! From then on, I stopped visiting the TG group altogether and decided to focus on small trades (where I still made mistakes) and some other things. I also spent some productive time giving a hand to my good hubby in some farm works, reorganizing the plants around the yard, and enjoying so many 'lazy days' while regularly posting on noise cash.

In an attempt to introduce my niece to Bitcoin Cash, I sent some 0.0489BCH to her newly-created wallet on June 28th and 29th respectively. Incidentally, June 29 was her birthday so it just felt good to be able to share some bits with her.

At the time of this writing, I have a total of 0.17289BCH, all earned from noise cash. I have transferred most to Celsius on 26th June, with the hope that it would earn me some $CEL instead of keeping it idle somewhere, or I might get tempted to gamble it away lol!

So putting it all together, I have actually earned 0.252851 BCH from my noise.cash activities since my first day to date. It isn't much compared to others but I have no complaints. That was the result of my noisecash time and I am so grateful.

Overall, my half-year ride with #noisecash and BCH was quite productive and enjoyable too. And as you may have felt, I am now 'addicted' to BCH, and thinking about it becoming a universal payment system really excites me. I have talked more about this in my previous article Of QR Codes, Theories and Bitcoin Cash where my imagination went wild.

And oh, I'm also thankful that I don't feel "ouchy" when transferring BCH from one wallet to another because the transaction fees are so acceptable. One more reason to fall all the more in love with BCH huh!

One reason my interest in coins on the ETH network waned is the fees. I can't take out some of my old coins from my Ethereum wallet because of the higher cost of doing so. I feel it's a waste so I would probably just wait for a miracle to happen or perhaps the ETH2.0 will solve it sooner.

And on another lighter note, my niece has created an account in noise cash. Unfortunately, she hasn't posted anything yet. She might be busy with her projects (she started accepting building or house design jobs a few months ago). I hope she'll be able to post something when her schedule allows her to.

And speaking of birthdays made me think using BCH as a gifting medium to my kins, that would be another way to introduce BCH to them don't you think?

Brilliant! I may do just that!

Till then, keep riding on!

Reading this led me to remember my adventures with Alts in 2017-2018. I was determined to make money with the Alts, and I ended up losing much of what I had earned with my first SATs. Now, I'm much more conservative hehe. It's always nice to read to you. Cheers!

Thank you for your kind comment :) And yes, you are truly right it isn't all free. We use our time too and make effort in order to earn. Welcome to the crypto universe as they say :) Just enjoy your time and keep learning (I also need to) and the rewards will come :)

This is a really cool journey, my friend

Facebook has always been a wonderful place to find information, these days, twitter is doing same too

I am glad that fate wanted you to be a part of BCH, and that is why even when you ignored the first post from your friend, fate brought another post to you

I am happy that at that second point, you took the ball and started rolling with it, having faith that you too can gain from it

Hallelujah! I am saying hallelujah because you got gains, even though you lost them in the shit coins.... I am sorry about this point

I am pleased, that BCH has allowed you to be able to gift your friends and family birthday presents in the form of crypto coins, and for you, this is a way of promoting the token

All in all, you gain a lot with your time, you stumbled and failed, but rose again, today, you are very much in love with BCH and that is a good thing

Awesome journey, mate, thank you for sharing with you, it serves as a source of encouragement to those of us just starting out, here.

That's quite a ride, hope your ass isn't too sore. I must admit all those new coins I never bothered with, you have to be in very early, then sell quick take your profit and go, meanwhile all the others after you lose. In that respect I liken them to pyramid schemes. BCH is fun, I have only got them through here and noise. ZIL was my big small coin and I did pretty well with that trading etc. My BCH is a saving pool for me now.

It was, but my dear ass isn't sore, I knew pretty well but I gambled anyway. And yes, need to be fast or you'll be sorry. My trading accounts are quite a mess too😂. Congrats to u for making big out of ZIL. Missed it somehow. And for BCH, it for keeps for me, won't be selling anytime soon, unless a need arises but I think they'll be safe😊

Ooohhh I feel the pain of losing all those coins! Sure, they were free, but we spent time and brain cells in order to earn them. Good thing you have parked them with Celsius now. hehe I don't have an account there yet. I want to have $400 first, which I don't.

Hummn. What a journey my dear friend. I really enjoy the read from the beginning to the end Hehehe. I was also one of the early adopters of noisecash when it freshly came on board, I enjoyed it for some weeks when I was home alone and schooling activities haven’t resumed. I had fun time

But when schooling resumed I couldn’t make it up again. I had to concentrate on my final year project work and last examinations. So I abandoned noise cash and even readcash too

But I am always grateful for my journey on both platforms. And the look of bch in the future is just so promising and I would say I am praying to have accumulated enough before those days come again
