I see so many suggesting passive income opportunities during a bear market, but, aren’t assets the better buy?

It seems everywhere I look people are suggesting passive income during this bear market. I just cant seem to wrap my head around how this makes sense. It seems to me accumulating assets right now is the smarter play although more painful in the short term.

  1. I just DCA into less volatile LPs like TriCrypto: 33% USDC, 33% BTC, 33% ETH.

    I get yield on it (14% APY on Arbitrum now). If crypto dumps more, it’s basically an automatic DCA as the LP will swap USDC to more BTC/ETH to keep the 33% ratio.

    If crypto goes up, I make 33% less on it but that’s fine by me considering the less risk I’m exposed to, while also getting APY, it’s basically combining passive income + asset appreciation.

    Regardless I can just leave the LP when I think the bear market is over and convert the remaining USDC into BTC/ETH/Alts

  2. I like your submission! This period is actually a very good time to DCA on sole favorites tokens with good prospects. However, earning a passive income is neither a bad submission too. Have been earning more income from OUSD for a while now, even before the market went dipper. The passive income is great so also another 13.60% APY for a trailing of 30-days.

  3. Nobody is saying buying assets is bad and staking for passive income isn’t entirely a bad idea either. You can only buy assets when you have enough cash for the long term.
    Earning passive income when the market is down is a good alternative especially when you can do that on a good platform that helps to minimize risk and optimize yield like what SPool does and in return can be used to buy asssets or automated based on indivdual preference,

  4. You can as well buy assets & stake them for passive income.

    Lot of cosmos POS assets like Rowan, Scrt have good APRs on Keplr. Many assets are cheap right now & yes, it’s a good time to buy. Even when I add new ones like FLD or claim my OP airdrop, I can still stake or LP some portion if possible, if at all I’m not selling all.

  5. Passive income isn’t entirely bad if it involves single-sided staking. Personally I will be staking H2O, PSDN and OCEAN tikl the bull market returns.

  6. Everyone has their own strategy, as far as I’m concerned I’m investing now that altcoins are on discount so I’ve bagged MATIC LINK OCEAN and DIA recently. Also staking DIA on Binance.

  7. Assets are the better options provide you are getting assets with good products like the LMaaS from ALBT or the Maiar Dex from EGLD.

  8. Passive income helps your through the bear season. I joined the H2O pool and I’ve been doing good so far. It’s ideal to monitor your activities

  9. Accumulating assets now is a good play for me, but I try to pick assets that generate passive income through staking, farming, or LP, and there are so many to choose from, ranging from high market cap assets like ETH, SOLANA, MATIC to low m-cap assets like UTK, SYLO, and a few others.

  10. It all depends mate, buying assets now that would add good value is good staking on gems with decent apy too I good now. I do both currently DCAing into ETH and SYLO while staking my XTZ bags on the web 3 Sylo wallet for a fixed 6% Apy.

  11. Buying assets is good if you have money to spare, but while holding its wise to put your money to work. Presently that can be done by staking and that is why I’m staking most of my assets like GLMR and XPRESS token till the market gets better

  12. You seem to be mixing things up. Staking does not prevent you from DCAing during a bear market, so you can do both. It allows you to earn money while holding your bag. The main disadvantage is that some platforms, such as Cosmos ecosystem projects, require two weeks to unstake, which may cause you to miss out on selling when you want to. I enjoy staking my long term bag and buying more dip, and I can’t wait for the FLUID LP to be released.

  13. Both are good strategies, it depends on what you decide to go with.

    For me, I’m staking by long term bags and also waiting to pick up solid altcoins like ETH, DOT, OCEAN, SCRT, ATOM, SOL and also upcoming gems like FLD and TEAM. At the moment I can increase my stake in FLUID’s reward token pool by gathering tickets from completing tasks or earn TEAM by setting up my TEAM Wallet.

    I’m even considering a small gamble on LUNA.

    Bottom line, just do what works for you, spot trading only, don’t leverage, use DCA and stay safe.

  14. What works for me is to simply buy those alts I feel are cheap and are on discount then go ahead to find a way to earn passive rewards on them. A good example is me geting a mid FUFU bag recently and I’m now into it’s LP staking pool.

  15. Why bother with passive income, now that the bear market is not here.

    We had a shitshow of a situation, where luna claimed to be all that, but it wasn’t. So leveragers took advantage and it happend. So for the past 3 days, if you were not buying, I honestly don’t know what you were doing.

    But if you are more into passive income, check Kaddex’s way of staking KDX as well as their liquidity providing multiplier.

  16. I would say both ways are the right ones.

    In bear market, price is where it is +- 15%, so buy the low and wait.
    BUT .. .while you are waiting stake it for passive income, so you have more of the token when you are finished with staking and when the bulls come, your ROI is higher.

    Also, be sure to have at least couple of dex’s in backpocket, which you know to operate, so you can compare them with Kaddex when it launches, so we can have a debate over it,about the pros and cons

  17. Earning passively in bad market like this is always like a cover up for the bad market. I’m currently on an Alpha pool of DIA where as a holder, I get to stake my NFTart to earn up to 2000% earning.

    Also staking my USDT as I see it as one of the solid stables at the moment.
