Overview of Ethereum
Ethereum is a pretty cool platform. It’s decentralised, which means it’s not controlled by any government or corporation. It’s also open-source, which means anyone can use and build on it. Basically, it’s a platform for creating and running smart contracts and decentralised apps (dApps).
So what are smart contracts? Think of them as computer programs that automatically execute when certain conditions are met. For example, you could use a smart contract to automate the exchange of money, property, or other assets between two parties. No need for a middleman!
Ethereum uses its own cryptocurrency called Ether (ETH) to power its network and execute transactions. And to keep everything secure, it uses a consensus mechanism called Proof of Stake, which is more energy-efficient than other methods.
In terms of dApps, Ethereum is a pretty big deal. It’s home to many decentralised apps, from games and social media to financial applications. And you can even create decentralised organisations (DAOs) that run on code rather than relying on a central authority.
So, that’s Ethereum in a nutshell! It’s a pretty innovative platform helping shape a more decentralised and open internet.
So, how can you make money from this cutting-edge cryptocurrency? Let’s find out.
Ways To Earn Passive Income In Nigeria With Ethereum
1. Trading Ethereum:
One of the most straightforward ways to make money with Ethereum is trading. The basic idea is to buy low and sell high. You’ll need to find a reputable crypto exchange that supports Ethereum., and create an account. From there, you can buy Ethereum using Nigerian Naira (NGN) or another cryptocurrency and hold onto it until you think the price will go up. Then, you can sell it for a profit.
Keep in mind that the cryptocurrency market is highly volatile, and prices can change quickly. It’s important to understand market trends and do your research before making any trades. Consider using stop-loss orders to minimise your risk and protect your investment.
To get the most out of your investment, you must sell your Ethereum on the best crypto trading platform, Breet app. Breet is an OTC crypto trading app in Nigeria where you can convert Ethereum to Naira and withdraw your funds directly to your Naira bank account within seconds for no extra charge. Get started by downloading Breet today, and enjoy a seamless trading experience.
2. Staking Ethereum:
Staking is another way to make money with Ethereum, and it’s a lot less risky than trading. Staking means holding onto your Ethereum and helping to secure the network by participating in consensus. In return, you’ll earn rewards in the form of new Ethereum. The more Ethereum you stake, the more you’ll earn.
To start staking, you’ll need a minimum amount of Ethereum in a wallet that supports staking. You can choose a staking provider or use a decentralised platform like Rocket Pool or Stakefish. Staking is an excellent option if you’re looking for long-term investment and passive income.
3. Participating in decentralised Finance (DeFi):
Decentralised finance, or DeFi, is a growing sector of the Ethereum ecosystem that allows you to earn interest and yield on your Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. DeFi protocols like Aave, Compound and Yearn Finance allow you to deposit your Ethereum and earn interest, similar to a savings account. You can also earn yield by providing liquidity to DeFi exchanges, such as Uniswap or Balancer.
DeFi is a high-risk, high-reward opportunity, so it’s essential to do your research and understand the risks involved. Make sure to only invest what you can afford to lose and consider using stop-loss orders to protect your investment.
4. Crypto Lending:
Crypto lending is another way to earn passive income with Ethereum. You can lend your Ethereum to borrowers and earn interest on your loan. This can be a great option if you have a large amount of Ethereum that you don’t need to sell right away.
Several platforms offer crypto lending services, such as Nexo, BlockFi, and Celsius. Keep in mind that crypto lending is a relatively new and untested market, so it’s essential to do your research and understand the risks involved.
5. Mining Ethereum:
Mining is the process of creating new Ethereum by solving complex mathematical problems. The more computing power you have, the more Ethereum you can mine. You’ll need to set up a mining rig, which can be an expensive investment, but the rewards can be substantial.
Keep in mind that mining is a highly competitive field, and the cost of electricity and hardware can be significant. You’ll need to do a cost-benefit analysis to determine if mining is a good investment for you.
6. Participating in Ethereum-based prediction markets:
Ethereum-based prediction markets, such as Augur and Gnosis, allow you to bet on the outcome of events and earn rewards based on your accuracy. You can participate in prediction markets by creating a market, placing bets, and earning rewards based on the outcome. This is a great option if you have knowledge or expertise in a particular field or market.
7. Creating NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens):
NFTs are unique digital assets that can be bought, sold, and traded on the Ethereum blockchain. If you’re an artist, musician or have another creative talent, you can monetise your work by creating NFTs. You can sell your NFTs on platforms like OpenSea, Rarible, or SuperRare.
8. Earning passive income through yield farming:
Yield farming is a process of earning passive income by depositing Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies in liquidity pools and earning rewards for providing liquidity to decentralised exchanges. This is a high-risk, high-reward opportunity for those familiar with the DeFi space. Several yield farming platforms, such as Binance Smart Chain, allow you to earn rewards for providing liquidity.
9. Investing in Ethereum-based startups:
Another way to make money with Ethereum is by investing in Ethereum-based startups. This can be a high-risk, high-reward opportunity, as startup investments are generally considered speculative. However, if you do your research and invest in a promising startup, you could see significant returns on your investment.
10. Earning Ethereum through content creation:
If you have a talent for writing, video production, or other forms of content creation, you can earn Ethereum by creating and sharing your content on various platforms. Some platforms allow you to earn rewards in the form of cryptocurrency for creating and sharing valuable content with the community.
11. Earning Ethereum through affiliate marketing:
Finally, you can earn Ethereum through affiliate marketing. This involves promoting products or services and earning commissions for every sale made through your unique affiliate link. Several Ethereum-based affiliate marketing platforms, such as Refersion, allow you to earn Ethereum for your marketing efforts.
In conclusion, there are plenty of ways to make cash with Ethereum in Nigeria. Whether you’re into trading, staking, DeFi, or something else entirely, there’s a way for you to get in on the action. The key is to do your research and understand the risks involved with any investment. But with the right mindset and effort, you can make the most of your Ethereum investment and grow your wealth over time. So, get out there and start exploring the opportunities!

Moghalu Explains Why CBN Naira Redesign Policy Woefully Failed
By Aduragbemi Omiyale
A former deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Kingsley Moghalu, has attributed the failure of the Naira redesign policy of the apex bank to the lack of effective risk management, its use as a political tool and others.
Last October, the central bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, announced that the designs of the N200, N500, and N1,000 denominations would be changed.
In a special press briefing, he disclosed that the new notes would be introduced into the banking system by December 15, while the old currency notes would cease to be legal tender from January 31, 2023.
However, the deadline was moved forward to February 10, and on March 3, the supreme court extended the deadline to December 31, 2023, meaning the old notes will remain valid by the end of the year.
From February 10 till now, Nigerians have been unable to have access to cash as commercial banks limit what customers can withdraw via their channels. In some cases, customers are limited to N1,000, N2,000, and N5,000 cash withdrawals, forcing them through an untold hardship and making a mess of the Naira redesign and cashless policies of the CBN.
While speaking on the issue, Mr Moghalu blamed his former employers for the failure of the policy, noting that they did not put the system under thorough scrutiny.
“The terrible suffering and economic loss Nigerians have experienced as a result of the faulty IMPLEMENTATION of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Naira redesign policy, the entry of the judiciary into central banking functions, all show clearly how our institutions— and Nigeria — fail when institutions that are meant to be operationally independent become politicized.
“Currency functions are a core part of any central bank’s mandate. To that extent, I had no problem with the policy, except for two vital issues. First, the 90-deadline, which I warned, was too short to be effectively executed. Second, the timing is so close to the elections.
“But, as later became clear, there was a haphazard and incoherent communication of the PURPOSES of the policy. In one breath, it was said to be to reduce the money supply and help tame inflation (after the bank had created and lent N23 trillion to the federal government illegally because that was way beyond approved limits under the CBN Act of 2007). Next, it was promoted as a national security measure to halt kidnapping, Naira hoarding and sundry crimes. Then, next, it became about free and fair elections to stop vote-buying.
“This last reason became the most important — and controversial — reason as the tempo of the 2023 presidential contest rose to boil point. Expectedly, politicians who felt the policy targeted them complained loudly and wanted the deadline extended, while those who believed it helped their own political agendas hailed the tight and impractical deadline and did not want it moved.
“Nigerians were trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea of a desire to curb the menace of vote-buying and the effective confiscation of their own money by the implementation failure of the policy.
“While increasing digital payments, another purported goal of the policy, was a good one, that thinking failed to consider the reality that the payment infrastructure was still not robust in many rural areas of our country, that cash remains king, and, as I said on an interview with @LadiAAle of @channelstv, we were carrying on as if it has now become a crime to use cash in Nigeria. Most important, as I raised the question in that same interview, what exactly is the mandate of the CBN? Had it now become to end vote buying in elections? Surely, we have anti-corruption institutions vested with such mandates, and to use the CBN for that primary purpose was to politicize the institution.
“But many Nigerians, as usual, did not think deeply about the implications of this line of thinking and action because of their political passions against presumably corrupt politicians.
“Today, whatever may have been the benefits of the Naira redesign policy have been cancelled out by the economic and social gridlock it has created. We are still suffering from it after the almighty presidential election has come and gone.
“There are several lessons here. One such lesson is the importance of effective risk management, which was evidently absent in the conception and execution of the policy.
“I had highlighted this in a previous intervention. But there is the fundamental lesson of whether our institutions in Nigeria have been hijacked and subverted from serving the Nigerian people and our economy to serving personal and political agendas, including a dishonest use of a war against corruption as an attractive shiny object.
“One day, we will count the losses to the Nigerian economy, the legitimacy and effectiveness of a once-prestigious institution, and to the legitimacy of the Nigerian state itself, of the partisan politicization and de-professionalization of the leadership of the CBN.
“Our apex bank, along with the judiciary, is one of the key institutional prisms through which foreign countries and investors abroad and at home assess the functioning or otherwise of the Nigerian state. Turning it into a political football was and is a big mistake, and a strong indicator of state failure,” he wrote via his verified Twitter page.
