Turning DEC to fiat.

Finding easy ways to earn from crypto.



If you are interested in crypto you have no doubt found multiple ways to earn online by now.

That is actually very easy.

What's not so easy is creating real world value out of virtual currency.

Matching crypto to fiat can be an awkward and expensive experience.

Take @splinterlands for example. We now have a rental market that allows you to earn passive income from your extra cards. That is great but the income is in DEC an in-game token based on the hive blockchain.

So how can I Get from an in-game currency to food on the table?



Crypto.com



Luckily I already have a crypto.com debit card for the past couple of years with a multi-currency wallet that is an easy way to spend crypto in real life.

I would suggest for anybody to get one as well by following the above post but any crypto debit card makes life a lot easier.



Binance Smart chain



One of the best innovations that splinterlands has brought to the community is cross chain assets.

As much as I love hive, we are still very limited with our access and where we can actually use it.

What one can do however, is to withdraw to the BSC from the game. There is an option there by clicking your DEC balance which allows you to host the tokens on that chain.

I went.

DEC --> Binance Smart chain using metamask. (free)

From there I opened up Cubfinance.io and went to use their swap feature.

I logged into cubfinance with my metamask wallet.

There I swapped my DEC to BUSD for a small fee. ( 0.15c roughly)

DEC --> BUSD

Then i withdrew my new token BUSD to my crypto.com wallet and used a free swap to change that BUSD to USDC which is supported for swaps to Euro.

I know it sounds complicated but in reality it is just a few easy steps and once you have the pathway set up you can have DEC to Euro in less than 5 minutes for under a dollar.

Withdraw DEC onto BSC.
Swap DEC --> BUSD using cubfinance.
Withdraw BUSD to crypto.com.
Swap BUSD --> USDC,
Swap USDC --> EURO.

Then spend as normal.
As more and more of us move towards a position that is full time crypto. It's important to be able to live from what we can earn online without spending 100's of dollars in transaction fees.

With this method the cost should be less than a dollar every time which is nothing if you are moving a few hundred at a time.

This is a good way, although it has quite a few steps. The way I am doing this by exchanging DEC to HIVE on TribalDex, from there transfer to the wallet and then to Binance where I get to exchange them to USDT and then EURO. I found this the shortest way with the smallest fees or losses between exchanges.

Nothing wrong with that either. How do you get those euro to your accounts? Is it a bank withdrawal?

Actually, as they have SEPA disabled I withdraw directly into my card, free of charge.

Hi @niallon11. what kind of hoops did you have to jump thru to get the crypto card. Do they do many KYC checks?

Nothing out of the ordinary. I had to provide an official I'd and fill out a form. That was it. I did add enough stake to get. A higher spec card with benifits but that has paid itself back by now.

There is also a free version that you can get. Works great and had it for two years.

Oh that is nice. As someone in the US, I never really thought of using Binance since its banned here. So crypto.com is a good alternative?

Highly recommended it. Had the card for 2 years with zero hassle. Makes it very handy to convert to fiat.

I was just wondering about this today! Timely.

There are lots of ways to do it of course but this is fast and cheap.

Easier for users here of course that are familiar with all of steps but it can be learned quick enough.
