Starting Point

You should never invest money you can’t afford to lose and many of us don’t have a lot of extra funds laying around these days. This why I partly go about this crypto thing from their position and try out some free earners where they can build a base to use for investing to make more money.

One such free earner that is paying is Faucet Crypto. You don’t earn much, but in little over a week I have been able to withdraw 2 bucks, just enough for a small investment in a high yield investment program (HYIP). You can speed up your earnings by referring more people to the site, you will then earn 20% in commissions on their earnings.

Faucet Crypto

At Faucet Crypto you get a faucet where you can claim free crypto every 40 minutes, paid-to-click ads to earn from and also shortlinks, those are a bit of a nuisance so myself I’m staying clear of them. The cherry on the top is that you raise experience points elevating your level and adding a bonus on every earning that grows in time.

On the subject of the investment I will get back to you when I have tried it out and further guide you in this crypto jungle.

Five Moons

I like challenges when photographing, such a challenge is getting nice shots of the moon. Lately I have been viewing another kind of moons though, the kind that earns me money.

One way of obtaining free crypto such as Bitcoin and Dash is using so called “faucets” where you can claim free crypto with different intervals, some are available for claiming every 5 minutes and others once an hour. Then there are the awesome Moon faucets where you decide when to claim, just leave them open to see the amount available to claim grows and when you fell like hit that Claim button.

One great thing about these are that you recieve 25-50% commission on all your referrals faucet claims, when they earn you earn. All claimed funds goes directly to your CoinPot account where you can let your funds grow and when you have sufficient funds withdraw to your crypto wallet. If you want to be able to with draw a little sooner CoinPot gives you the ability to convert between crypto currencies, then you can get them all in one slot and make just one withdrawal sooner instead of five withdrawals later.

Startup

Don’t you wish you had been part of it all when Bitcoin first launched and gotten yourself a bunch of coins when they were cheap? After all, one Bitcoin today is worth some $11,400 USD.

Well, how about getting in on a new crypto currency and build yourself a possible fortune? Even if you don’t have money laying around to invest you can actually get a piece of the pie for free. RX Coin is in startup and they are giving you a $20 signup bonus right now which you can invest for a 1% daily return for 50 days, then you can re-invest and slowly grow your account.

Here’s the real kicker, they also give you 80 RX Coins (worth some $50) and a mining tool to increase the RX amount on automatic for free. Their own crypto exchange is due to go live in December so you have plenty of time to let the miner tick away to fill up your account.

Pickaxe & Shovel

I may not be using such tools as a pickaxe or a shovel, but I am sure mining. Maybe not in the way you think, I’m mining gold online with my computer. To be specific I’m mining crypto currencies such as Bitcoin and others.

Why work more than you have to when there are mining services you can use to earn Bitcoins? Some requires an investment, but there are quite a few that will mine for you for free as well. All you have to do is sign up and have them running in the background in a browser while you’re busy doing more fun things.

These are free to get going with, if you want them to mine faster for you there’s always the possibility to purchase more “hash power”. Just remember, don’t invest money you can’t afford to lose. How many mining operations you should get started depends on how powerful your computer is, you may want to limit yourself to just a couple if the toaster running your software is a little smaller.

Faucets

In between editing loads of street photography shots to ready them for stock photo agencies I have also been hard at work (or was it hardly working) cleaning house, kind of, in the Bitcoin (BTC) section of my online existance. Especially I have been closing my accounts with most of the PTC (paid to click) sites as they are paying way to poorly for me to wanting to waste time with them. It takes an eternity to earn enough for payout, there are better ways to use my time.

It’s better then to use so called faucets where you can go and claim free Bitcoins or rather Satoshis (the equivalent to cents, pennies, centime or at least the closest BTC comes to those) with intervals, some only every two minutes and others once an hour. They pay better and you don’t have put all that effort into it, you visit them every now and then and click the button to claim another one. The amount they pay varies as well, the best one I have gave a smashing 950 Satoshis on one click just this morning, it’s the first one below.

Please feel free to sign up you too to get free Satoshis:

I will return to the subject of Bitcoin in the future and will also in time open up a store where you can purchase prints using this currency. Of course I will also tip you about more nice ways of earning those Bitcoins. More opportunities are available in the left side column of the blog.

Drought

Sometimes the Childhood’s End characters are depicting human life, like when your bottle is empty but you’re still thirsty. There have been quite a few shots taken with Pinkie, unfortunately you won’t be able to get any merchandise with those.

My intention all along have been to make available as prints, apparel and other novelty items images with that pink kitten we all love, but to do so I need licensing or at the very least a property release from the copyright owners. Since the beginning of November 2019 I have been trying to obtain this from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) without even getting a response. I even looked up their chief legal officer at LinkedIn and contacted her regarding this matter just to be totally ignored and blocked. Sorry, guys and gals, but there will be no Pinkie stuff for you.

Shout at the devil

Returning to my models, yep, I do have a couple of those, for a moment to present to you an angry young man screaming his lungs out at the devil. This image actually is available both as prints and novelty items, it can also be found with some stock photo agencies. Although this may not be your cup of tea Christmas is coming up and without a doubt you have a metalhead or two on your gift list that would love to get something metal related. And there are other nice items that may be more to your own liking.

If you’re looking for something different please let me know in a comment and I will do my very best to accomodate, I have an extensive archive of images and may very well be able to get what you want up in the shops.

Not cool!

This is not cool!

On Instagram many profiles do this thing where you can get featured if you tag them when posting yourself. It’s a nice and easy way to get visibility, if they feature your image as is that is. Yesterday one such feature occured, but when doing like this profile did is actually copyright infringement. Although he/she tagged me the image had been cropped in such a way that my logo was removed and also the image went from sharp to fuzzy.

When done like this it reflects poorly on me as photographer, when my image is reposted it should be unaltered and not made a lesser image that won’t show the quality of my work. Below both versions have been included so you can see the difference. and, it is copyright infringement which makes it illegal when reposting!

Incidently, this particular image is available as print and novelty items at Printler, Spreadshirt, Redbubble and Pixels/Fine Art America. How likely are you to make a purchase if an image of poor quality is what you have seen before from my work?

Needless to say this particular Instagrammer won’t be getting any more support from me and I am actually considering filing charges. It’s sad really that people are so clueless when it comes to copyright.

This is not the first time I have been going down this road on the blogs, at the backup mirror there are a couple of posts to read. Infringement and Credits are two of them, one with what not to do and one on how to do it.
