This is a blog designed to track the journey to create a crypto portfolio that creates a passive income through yield / earn / staking techniques that generates $50k USD per annum.

Think of it like the FIRE (financial independence retire early) movement, but rather than living frugally and investing in index funds for dividend income, it’s living normally and using higher risk crypto related strategies to hopefully get us there in a fraction of the time. These strategies may involve yield farming, staking, lending protocols, airdrops… lets be honest, anything higher risk that has the potential to get us to this goal quickly.

I should add as well, I am a complete novice when it comes to crypto, but I have sat back and watched from the sidelines long enough now to understand what it is becoming. If there is something more beginner than novice, then I am whatever that is when it comes to building a website and blog writing. This is all a new journey for me, and I hope you as a reader can come along for the ride. Needless to say, none of this is financial advice. In fact, it is all probably terrible advice. Alas I live in hope that this works, and I can one day escape the 9-5.

Just like Andy Dufresne said, “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies”. Someone somewhere else also said “life begins outside your comfort zone”. And then finally there is the classic “i before e, except after c”. All mantras I hold dear and will hopefully adhere to along this journey.


The Ground rules

The Goal : $50k (USD) per annum in income through crypto

Criteria & Rules

The above sets the ground rules. Everything else is fair game. When one of the tokens in the portfolio inevitably moons, we may exceed the 25% asset threshold momentarily but let’s cross that lovely bridge when we come to it.
