So far on the list...

2.Cryptocurrency(Bitcoin faucets)

4. Online Paid Survey

So far I have tried out toluna, where I have screenshot the payment in my last post

I am currently trying out mysurvey which has low payout criteria of  $2(the lowest that I have seen so far, not that I have tried many only toluna and mysurvey so far)

I am reaching the payout for mysurvey soon and I would probably update on next week post whether this online survey is legit.

4.An interesting post to share this week

Post: have also posted this on sonicericsg facebook page)

Though this post is quite dated some time back, it's findings is still relevant in 2018

Key summaries:
1. Fund managers have all the insiders trading tips and an edge over individual investors
2. Individual investors do have an edge over wall street traders and that is time.
3. With time, the odds of you making a loss is 0 percent, if you hold for 5 years(10years would be a more safer choice)
4. To quote from the article". Five years, and you're doing better. Ten years, and there's a good chance you'll be sitting on positive annual returns. Hold them for 20, 30, or 50 years, and there has never been a period in history when stocks produced an average annual loss. In fact, the worst you've done over any 30-year period in history is increased your money two-and-a-half fold after inflation"

Pretty nifty eh?

5.Paid survey

Actually, this part of my zero dollar project has been in the works for some time, about a month or two back. But firstly, let me introduce you to paid survey!


One of the surveys she recommends to try out is toluna and I am have been trying them out for almost a month, here are the results...

My PayPal payment! (and it just took around a month)

To cash out from toluna, you need about 40000 points ($20 via PayPal), each survey is about a 2000-5000 point sometimes maybe more

Overall, it seems like paid surveys are a good way to go for my zero dollar project!

That's all for this week, do stay tuned to next week blog post!

(Post 12/Week 14)Zero dollar project:Cryptocurrency,carousell,short link,Affiliate marketing

I am back to update with my zero dollar project, yeah!😀

Zero Dollar Project

2.Bitcoin Faucet
3.Short link(youtube and 3 weekly financial posts)
4.Affiliate marketing(Amazon)



One of my friends told me that posting regularly on carousell works for him very well,(if only I got that much item to sell), haha. Still, this week was also another boring week with only one or two offers from buyers but due to a clash in schedule, I would have to propose the buy/sell to next week

2.Bitcoin faucet

As for the bitcoin(or should I say cryptocurrency)faucets, it is steadily increasing due to regularly collecting from the faucets. In the last post, I sign up with, and and along with, I have also been collecting from these faucets regular or almost daily basis. Certainly, I must say this part of the zero dollar project is going well

3.Short Link

In my last post, I mention about my Youtube channel showcasing Yugioh(a trading card game)duel and the blog that goes along with it. In my blog, I provide the link(short link actually) to download the decklist, thereby earning a small amount of money.

Anyway, I have moved the 3 financial post I recommend to read per week to my facebook page, you can probably see my facebook page if you are on a desktop

If you click the picture you will be brought straight to the article page but if you click the link above(the one that is circle below) you will be brought to a short link before going to the article, again please take it as donating to a patreon account without forking any money if you enjoy reading the articles I recommend.

4.Affiliate marketing(Amazon)

If you have noticed on the right side of my blog(probably on the desktop only), you could see the facebook page and a couple of affiliated products(book of personal finance) of Amazon, this is something that I thought I would give it try even though I expect the result would not be not so stellar 
(If I am able to earn via affiliate marketing, why not??)

And apparently, affiliate marketing is a serious business, lots of prominent bloggers are using it as an extra revenue to generate income, I would probably do more result on affiliate marketing to find a good strategy to implement it(probably somewhere this week maybe?)

That's all for this weekly post and updates, do check out and like my facebook page where I share articles that are a good read!

(Post 11/week 14)zero dollar project:cryptocurrency,carousell and short link

Hi all, I am back this week with my updates on my zero dollar project.

Zero dollar project

2.Bitcoin faucets
3.Short link



Nothing much up for carousell this week, just uploading more book to sell from my massive collection

2.Bitcoin faucets

This week, our bitcoin faucets collection

Last week, my friend mention about also has its counterpart faucets for dash and other cryptocurrencies

From the research link:

I found out that actually there are many other cryptocurrencies that the Moon faucets are currently offering, such as bitcoin cash,litecoin, dash and dogecoin

Like the faucet that I am using, the other cryptocurrency also includes daily loyalty bonus and a mystery bonus

Most importantly,coinpot(the cryptocurrency wallet that the bitcoin are deposit into and what I am using now) has the ability to convert the cryptocurrency in your account to the coin of your choice, this means that you should open an account with all the moon faucets to maximize your earning.

So of course, the next step for me is to sign up with the other moon faucets

Anyway, for now, I will give it a try and see how it goes for a week(will probably update about the other faucets result next week)

3.Short link

In the last post, I mention about my youtube channel on Yugioh duel.

Basically on my youtube channel,I upload videos of Yugioh trading card game duel with some "super basic video technique"(and by super basic I really mean super basic)and provide the decklist for the duels on my Yugioh blog where there is a "short link" waiting for them to download the decklist(A Microsoft word document that has the list of cards)

It may seem a little underhand of me to do that but I have work on this channel for a long time and do not wish to give up on it anytime soon.

It wasn't always like that though, I used to provide the decklist on the youtube video description and I was earning very little but hey, Yugioh is one of my passion so I didn't mind much about it until this

The above news make me feel that youtube is simply abandoning the small channel for the bigger channel(probably to attract more advertiser?)But anyway, I still continue to upload the video to my channel and providing the decklist using short link.

Anyway, enough about that, I have come up with a new way to earn via short link and it is to provide link to other financial articles on the blog

So starting from this week I will do our 3 financial posts to read this week segment(hint: you can also copy and paste the link to avoid the short link;-)

3 financial post to read this week




Please take it as clicking the link above as donating to a patreon account without forking any money, if you enjoy reading my post please support me, thank you very much! that's all for this week will continue to update again next week

(Post 10/Week 13):zero dollar business update:carousell,cryptocurrency and short link

Firstly, welcome back to the sad reality after the CNY holiday:) 

During CNY spring cleaning, I found many more treasures to sell on carousell(Yes, more book to sell!!)


As for the faucets, it is still going well with daily collection:) 

My friend has informed me that the bitcoin faucets I am also has other faucets in other cryptocurrencies such as dash etc(may have to do research on this as well)

And this week I have continued research on the ways and method of earning via short link

Research link

Method 1: If you have a website, you can use this shorten links there in your articles and also you can interlink your post in the website(which is one of the methods that I am doing)

Method 2: You can write a post and add a link to it

Method that I have come out with/currently employed...

Method 3: Providing useful post or guide e.g free ebook and short link it?

Method 4: Providing the decklist of my Yugioh video on my youtube channel(yup, another topic to talk about next week)

That's all for my update this week!

(Post 9/Week 11)zero dollar business:Crytocurrency and bitcoin faucet

Happy Chinese New year to all!!

This week we are back with our zero dollar business tips

So far on the list, we have...

3.Bitcoin faucets

1.Carousell and Gumtree


There is nothing much to update this week(Yes, zero sales this week.....perhaps we should do more promotion on it soon)

2.Bitcoin faucets

The newest zero dollar project seems to be going well, for now, I am currently logging in about three times per day. Namely, morning, afternoon and evening to collect the satoshi payout

It's been only a few days but here is how much I have for now

It may seem little for now, but I believe with due diligence, I will be able to gather more Satoshi

Anyway, my knowledge on cryptocurrency is still an amateur and I believe there are a lot more thing that I have yet to learn or discover(More research to be done on this perhaps??)

3.Link shortener

*Warning: Short link will appear frequently from this point onwards, just like your ratatta in pokemon go! You have been warned!

So last week, I was hinting about link shortening towards the end of my post(albeit subtlety) and how to use it to make money

Link research

So question 1: What are link shorteners?

Basically, it is a website which turns a long link into a short one

E.g Long

And here is the short version:

Questions no2: How does link shorteners work?

Step 1: Visitor click on the shortened link

Step 2: Web page will be redirected to the ad

Step 3: After 5 second, the visitor can click to skip the ad and will be redirected to the webpage that they wanted to go initially

This picture below summarized how short link work:)

And now question no3: What are some of the paid link shorteners?

Some of the paid link shorteners are...

3.Link shrink

From the research link, it seems that the best payout is, which is also what I am currently using throughout this blog post to demonstrate short links

There are many ways that short link can be used to earn money like in the research link, the author earns money via linking it to the movie trailer

Quoting from him"When a visitor clicked a movie cover, a shortener displayed an ad and then the visitor was redirected to the desired page to see a movie trailer"

Another way could be linking it to other links or website(which is best demonstrated in this blog post)

All in all, the potential to make money using short link is only limited by your imagination

Once again, gong xi fat cai to all!!!

(Post 8/Week 10)zero dollar business:cryptocurrency and gumtree

Hi all, this past few weeks have been busy for me(that's procrastination in the works)


Sold off some book(diary of the wimpy kid)on carousell this week and last, which is pretty good news.

And also...

Recently, I have just started creating an account on funding societies(a p2p lending platform) but that's a story for another day(or perhaps another week?)

Note: I am not affiliated to any of the companies mention above

As per my last post to sell more item, I have started on selling some of the items on gumtree, as you can see here.

I would probably deal with the seller using the same way as I did in carousell. Also by linking my email to both gumtree and carousell, I would only need to check my email for any notifications from both apps. Hence, reducing the hassle of checking both apps to for any  notification

For now, I will probably take a backseat to this and do some spring cleaning for CNY to dig out more treasures to sell, haha

On to cryptocurrency:)

Our chosen platform for bitcoin faucets is seem to have changed their default wallet to coinpot from Xapo, so I probably have to set up an account with coinpot first

Coinpot seems to have quite a nice interface...

After setting up with coinpot, its back to to sign up finally! Simply type in the email address you use to register with the coinpot and you will be logged in to!

You have to wait minimally 5 min between each claim, or you can just wait until the end of each day before collecting it in one shot

Note*(very important): Do bear in mind to log in once per day to claim!

Anyway this week has been a pretty rollercoaster week what's with Dow jones dropping 600+ point in a day which is the most drop it ever have in a day in the history,this may be a sign of the start of economic downturn which will once again remind us of the importance on having the extra passive income or savings to tide thorough this difficult time

By the way, I will try to update at least once to twice per month, due to other commitment(Yes, my others zero dollars project) which will all be revealed in due time, cheers!
