How A Telegram Group Made Me €462.56 In Real Passive Income — So Far

YieldNodes earning me passive income.

This is the story of how I started gaining trust into YieldNodes. How I went from a total skeptic who would never invest a single € with this platform to someone creating educational content on YieldNodes and trying to spread the word about the opportunities and risks as much as possible.

I don’t remember where exactly I heard about YieldNodes for the very first time. As a broke student, I used to be looking for a way to make some bucks online without too much extra work.

I tried apps or websites that paid you for simple tasks, but most if not all turned out to be a scam or pay way too little to justify the effort.

I tried affiliate marketing, but most of the products didn’t convince me personally, and how do you even market that? Furthermore, I tried writing blog articles, but I stopped halfway through — it didn’t feel right to write about topics I had little experience in.

Then I discovered crypto and yield farming. I quickly understood that you needed a bit of initial capital and lots of research. A lot of money was waiting to be made, but it came with a lot of risk and hours of studying new protocols. It was fun for me for a while, but far from profitable given the effort.

Enter YieldNodes

When I first saw the website I was shocked by the strange looking image, it was not really convincing. I started digging for experiences of real people and quickly found some Youtubers who sounded happy with their experience, but everyone had their affiliate link in their bio, so could they really be trusted?

I started looking at the history of YieldNodes and saw that they are operating for more than 2 years, which is quite impressive in this fast moving crypto space.

The interesting and a little scary part was that it was completely hands-off, you invest the money, and you forget about it. YieldNodes rents the master nodes and creates a profit each month. Sounds easy, but can you really trust them with your money?

Enter the Telegram Group

The tipping point for me was the unofficial (German) Telegram Group. I entered the chat and asked the typical beginner questions: How long are you invested? Has anyone tried to withdraw money?

To my surprise, the group was nice enough to answer my questions and let me know that these questions are asked daily be new joiners. Some people told me about 6 or 7 figures invested for over a year. I stayed in the group and saw new people joining every day, asking the same questions I had asked.

At the time of writing, the group has 1013 members. I think when I started this blog, there were around 600. To this day, people are joining and asking the same beginner questions. The YieldNodes circle repeats.

It becomes a routine: Every week, there is a guessing round for the profit numbers. Will it be 2% or 1.8% or even 2.5%? People are quite relaxed and let the YieldNodes crew do their masternoding job.

Due to this group, I thought I’d give it a try with the minimum deposit of €500. I also started to educate others about YieldNodes creating a twitter account and this blog. Let me know if you have any questions or remarks regarding YieldNodes, I will try to answer everything.

In 3 months I was able to make 23.7% or €462.56 on my slowly growing balance. Without this awesome Telegram Group, this would have never been possible. Too many things about YieldNodes look shady or too good to be true (and it very well might be) but it works for a lot of people for quite a while now.

On my way to reaching my YieldNodes goal

Due to returns, more deposits and some crazy affiliate returns I was able to increase my total masternoded balance (earning profits each month) to €5411.43. I set myself a goal to reach €10,000 by the end of this year. Crazy to think I already reached over 50% of it!

Onto bigger goals!
