It took me three years to get monetized on YouTube and earn $13.87 during my first month in October. While this is a great start, it’s very little compared to many crypto social platforms alternatives that let you start earning from day one.

While I have a small YouTube audience, across all the platforms I use, I have just under 100k followers. The many platforms I use earn me anywhere from $500-1800 a month depending on how often I am posting. This is a nearly livable wage for many people and could make a huge difference. Again, you also don’t have to go through years of making nothing to get there. I can say firsthand, that it is fairly discouraging, but I do this because I enjoy which has to always come first.

 

The point here is that you don’t have to be a popular YouTuber to make money and even if you are a popular YouTuber or content creator, you may be denying yourself free cryptocurrency earnings that you could easily take advantage of. On top of that, by utilizing blockchain platforms that are censorship-resistant, you can ensure you have backup channels for your content in case something were to ever happen to your YouTube channel.

 

Some great examples of platforms to use instead of YouTube that also earns you cryptocurrency are ThreeSpeak on Hive and LBRY. I also encourage you to check out Publish0x and Read.Cash for earning crypto by blogging. I also embed my LBRY videos on these platforms.

 

I compare my YouTube earnings to my September earnings in this video. In September I made $482.17 CAD worth of cryptocurrency from 8 platforms I used. I will be sharing my October update soon.

I also set up my new angle and I really like it. Let me know what you think of the new lighting and layout. In my next video, you will see the backdrop I have finished setting up. Thank you for enduring my bad lighting for all these years!

 

When you make hundreds of videos and YouTube won’t let you monetize, they are telling you that you are not providing value and thus not receiving any so people get discouraged. Alternative crypto platforms let you monetize from day one and affirm that your content does have value and that you deserve compensation for your efforts.

 

Do you think YouTube is necessary for content creators? Where do you monetize your content? Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to like, share, and subscribe as well!

If you want to be successful, you have to work hard. In the first case, the income may not be at all. But we will continue to get the benefit of the first condition later. So I think you have to stick to whatever you do. Only then will success come.

It's like they are kind of strict now compare before.. And btw, i thought you only need 1k followers to be eligible for monetization? And a certain number of views.. They are also having censorship to crypto bloggers..

Oh..so that was the reason.. The 4000 hours watched. I guess it's more difficult to achieve for those who have lesser subscribers...

If you talk about youtube monetization, you can think about LBRY project too

Very nice. I am also struggling to make it to YouTube monetization with fitness content: Workout music and full fitness courses. It has been a real struggle and I doubt that I will ever reach 1000 subscribers. 🙈

Maybe I should try a different platform like LBRY.

However, I have to admit that I couldn't watch your linked video. It kept breaking up constantly. 🙈 There is the advantage for YouTube. It just works. 🙈

You can monetize on Lbry easier (and not fearing your content might end up deleted). Of course YouTube technical capabilities are larger.

The censorship in form of deletion or de-monetization is definitely a problem for an ever increasing range of topics. My content does not fall near these areas, but it is definitely a good idea for other content creators to give LBRY a try. That could really boost the site's popularity.

Great article. I know a little about youtube and what they pay and how hard it is to actually make any kind of living but I read in your article that there are crypto type youtube platforms. What are these and how easy is it to get started? Thanks for the great post and now you have me thinking.

Great plan to earn from different platform. Can I ask something from you? If I create a video for youtube, can I share that video somewhere else? Where I can earn something with same video? I don’t know you will reply me or not. I'll be glad if you reply me sir.

While I kind of understand the 1000 follower limit for monetization, I don't understand why YouTube has to take 45% cut and only give you 55%. It's beyond me!

Some people believe that in centralized social media like YouTube and Instagram they could earn more on side opportunities beyond the video monetization. Job invites, paid online courses and events, ebooks, referral, merchandising, etc. Thanks for your sponsors, keep safe and good luck again!

Unable to monetize in YouTube (even if we want to, but we don't) and LBRY won't let our latam team go through (area restrictive). Publish0x too low income, slightly better than Uptrennd but withdraws takes longer and longer every time. As far as we know Read.cash is the easiest to monetize and to claim your rewards. If you're using others, not content restrictive and area restrictive, please signal them.

I think the biggest hindrance of vid content platforms from crypto is that they are not yet mobile friendly like YouTube. I personally do not like to go to a browser for 3Speak as I do listen a lot there from theyCallMeDan and even d.tube they are still heavily relying on browsers. I am not sure about LBRY. I might check that out although I am not very much of a vid content creator. Hence publish0x and read.cash is pretty good for me since I am more of a blogger than a vlogger.

Keep it up Scot. I enjoy your vids. Haven't checked out this one yet so probably will comment about the lighting haha.
