Below are five steps that would help you get started.

Yield farming makes use of staking. It means locking your cryptocurrency up for a while to get interested.

Yield farming works by first allowing the investor to stake their coins which causes a hard fork. Then, if the price of the coin appreciates, the investor returns rise.

Lending

This decentralized financial system allows investors to lend their cryptocurrency to people; making this the interest payment in the exchange is known as a "cryptocurrency dividend."

Let me give you an example of how it works. You

may have 20 Bitcoin. You plan to get a steady

passive income with them; There's a chance to

go into cryptocurrency lending; You will receive

interest. The interest rates can vary.

You can lose out on your cryptocurrency and earn extraordinary interest in return, think of it as you using your Piggyvest or Cowrywise savings account. You stash the money while the bank pays a specific interest rate.

Ensure you find a good and trustworthy platform before you loan out your cryptocurrency.

Staking

Staking in cryptocurrency means locking up a portion of your cryptocurrency for a letter of time to contribute to the blockchain network.

While not every cryptocurrency can be staked, most can. Here are a few cryptocurrencies that can be staked.

  1. Ethereum

  2. Cardano

  3. Solana

There are rewards for staking in cryptocurrency

  1. By staking, you can earn additional tokens.

  2. Compared to cryptocurrency mining, staking is less resource intensive

  3. Stagers get voting rights and participation

  4. For investors, staking can be an easy way to grow holdings.

Airdrops

This involves sending coins or tokens to a wallet address to promote a new virtual currency.

It is a form of marketing method that startups use in cryptocurrency, which involves delivering tokens to the trader's wallet.

The airdrop is meant to spread awareness and increase currency startup ownership.

Mining

This is the method by which Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the world are generated, and the transaction involving the new coin is verified and protected is called mining.

As we all know, mining is used to create a new coin and validate existing transactions in the blockchain. It is decentralized and helps reduce fraud and increase user confidence in a currency.
