YieldNodes Update: My Strategy for 2022 (250% Return on Investment?)

3 min readDec 31, 2021

Hi everyone,

this is an update to my first post on YieldNodes, published 10 days ago. I deposited ~$600 in Bitcoin which arrived in my account after 1 day and started earning interest two days ago. This interest is generated through “Master Noding” which is the process of providing capital to a master node of a Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency. For a more detailed explanation, check out my previous post.

My Strategy on YieldNodes (To compound or not to compound)

YieldNodes is a great way of diversifying my portfolio with a medium-risk, high reward asset. I consider YieldNodes medium risk because of all the transparency coming from the CEO and the company. They did two voluntary audits and delivered on their promise of 5–15% returns per month for the full last year. Of course some risks remain, when you send your capital to a company, that’s why I still diversify.

Now, there are two ways to go about your earnings on YieldNodes:

  • Pay out the return of the month to your Bitcoin wallet /SAPP wallet
  • Compound the returns (0% — 100% in steps of 10% possible)

As you learned in my previous article, your initial deposit is always locked for 6 months. This is needed to create stability, as YieldNodes needs to rent servers and maintain the master nodes.

Your compounding returns are also locked for 6 months, but not your total capital. So my initial $600 dollar can be payed-out in June 2022, while my compounded returns from this month (let’s say $60 if I get 10% this month) will be locked until July.

The big upside is the power of compound interest. On YieldNodes this means for next month I can get 10% interst not only on my $600 but on $660! This might not sound like a big difference, but this is because we humans are really not good at understanding exponential math.

As it is explained on the YieldNodes website: the added returns last 26 months were around ~132% (~11% per month, not compounded). If you compounded these rewards, you would get 249.85%

Using these numbers on my investment, I can basically choose between a profit of $792 (132%) or $1500 (250%). My total balance at the end of the year would be $1392 or $2200 respectively. As YieldNodes is a riskier part of my portfolio, I will use the second strategy and reinvest all my profits. I might take out my initial investment at some point, but so far I want to make use of the high returns.
