I asked on noise.cash about a place I can earn interest on BCH. THANK YOU to Fexonice1 and Pichi28! I now have Nexo.

It is absolutely astonishing that next year January I would have been here for a year, and I've "met" such awesome people on these platforms. People are so ready and willing to help and I couldn't be more thankful to be part of these communities. Most of the time people end up wanting to keep the knowledge they have for themselves, whereas on here everyone wants to share the knowledge to help everyone.
I still do to an extent. I was using Coinbase, Luno and AltCoinTrader. I was earning 2% interest on my BTC in Luno, zero interest in Coinbase on anything. I didn't have anything in AltCoinTrader for interest earning (even though it offers the chance) - I got it so that I can have a "friendly" platform to buy from for South Africans.
I pulled my USDC out of my savings account on Luno to buy the dip yesterday.
Thanks to BitcoinBaby on noise.cash I decided to pull some money out my credit card so that I can have it easily available for the advice offered, which was this:

If BitcoinBaby is wrong - I've lost nothing but a bit of time it took me to put the money in there, if he is right it means that I've got the funds immediately available for the next one.

I sent my XLM to NEXO so that I can earn interest on it.
I've sent all my XRP over there too.
The XRP from AltCoinTrader was near enough "instant", the send from Luno has now finally cleared. They were having massive issues on the platform yesterday which meant it was epically slow and I was semi-freaking out because I am still new at all of this. I get paranoid that the crypto will be lost in some abyss of a network that I don't know anything about.
I'm panicking even more so now, because my 3.2 BCH is on its way over to NEXO from Luno and I'm basically terrified of it reaching there. I initially sent over $5 just so that I could be sure of the process. There is an address issue from my Luno account to NEXO where it asks you to change it to a different format. This is what it looks like, and this is the link I used successfully so that I could transfer it.

End to the panic! It's "showing up" on NEXO...

Well at least that means that after the confirmations are done it will be there!
There's two ways that they allow you to earn interest:
Means you cannot get a loan on your crypto while you are earning the interest. It also means you cannot "draw" your money out during that time period. Which is a month - which you can tick the box for auto-renew, or manually do it again at the end of the month.
You can choose to earn interest in kind (the crypto you have), or you can earn in NEXO tokens.
The loyalty level in the top right block appears to allow you to earn more interest depending on the ratio of NEXO Tokens you have against your portfolio, it also allows you to make more withdrawals over a period depending on your level.
I used to suffer severely with FUD before I even began with crypto. I was sceptical of how these things worked, but I believed in them. Ten years ago I was even considering mining BTC but with the cost of electricity and start up equipment it was not viable. Today? I do see that I missed out spectacularly.
In 2015 I was in a position to "invest", but I didn't because of FUD. I've grown up to be that person who doesn't take risks. At that point BTC would have been a risk...
I would be a millionaire today if I had invested the money that I had available. I could kick myself. It makes me shake my head and go WHAT WAS I THINKING! I'm not doing that anymore. I have every intention of using crypto as my retirement policy. I won't sell anything off, it needs to just sit there earning interest and growing.
I'm going to go and figure out how things work with the different options on opensea.io because there must be a "cheaper" way for people to buy my NFT's. First, it's time to shove my coffee in the microwave because it has now turned ice cold while I've been typing this and reading the latest news 😂
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone here who has been so supportive in sharing knowledge with me while I'm learning! I am the equivalent of a first aider asking for help from a heart surgeon at this stage 🤣 thank you all for being patient and sharing your knowledge 🤩
