In June 2018, I decided to exit from Bondora. A year has gone by and I don’t even miss Bondora! It was the first platform I started investing in with just 10.1€ being the first deposit. Crazy right? It has served me well, even though I made lots of rookie mistakes, I am exiting with positive vibes. Farewell Bondora!
Exited from Bondora with a loss of 65,57€!
I do not recommend investing at Bondora, but if you still want to, be sure to read my Bondora review first!

As we all know, Kuetzal announced it’s shutting down on January 12th 2020. But just few days later on January 16th 2020, Envestio sent out a press release about “Envestio reacts to Kuetzal panic”. And as we again all already know, all of that was just BS. Envestio is also down and a scam just like Kuetzal was.
Is Envestio a scam? – Will another P2P platform bite the dust? – https://financefreedom.eu/is-envestio-a-scam-another-one-bites-the-dust/
My Envestio “interest income” in euros
As most or maybe even all of the projects at Envestio might’ve been fake, I don’t think that it’s wise for me to even consider “interest income” from the previous projects and just write off my initial investment of 500€.

I’ve been holding 500€ worth of cryptocurrencies since December 2017. Plan is to HODL them as long as possible.
I am using Binance as my cryptocurrency exchange ever since I started investing in 2017.
In addition, I totally forgot to take a screenshot of my January’s cryptocurrencies worth, so here I have a picture of December’s 2020 net worth.
#1 Blog income: TargetCircle/CircleWise and Bonusway
In June 2020, I decided to put the blog income from affiliate/referral system and other side hustles incoome into the same graph, hence the numbers are a bit bigger now. This is the part where it gets interesting.
In January the blog and referral comissions generated 80,98€;
Other side hustles generated: 491,87€;
Total income from side hustles + blog: 572,85€.
More detailed payout from TargetCircle/CircleWise:
I display two different incomes under the blog income. One is referral income from TargetCircle and the other one is affiliate income from Bonusway. Bonusway – I use it to save money while e-shopping or booking ONLINE. Read more at https://financefreedom.eu/save-money-when-e-shopping-or-booking-online/ A really simple way to save up money, especially on housing and from them random orders on AliExpress … (You know what I mean, we’ve all done it!) Considering this blog is mostly dedicated to finance and logging my pursuit on becoming financially free, the TargetCircle referral links usually earn me a lot more than Bonusway affiliate links or any other side hustle income.

Are you able to be more specific about the crypto investment? What did you buy and when? Thinking about buying myself a small part to HODL too.
Hello there Erik,
I bought majority of my cryptocurrencies back in 2017, when the market was at it’s then all-time high peak.
Since then, I’ve sold couple of them for losses and some of them for profit and traded some of them for another cryptocurrency.
I “HODL” cryptos like XRP, XLM, LTC, ETH, EGLD, CDT, BTC, BNB and AAVE. Most of them have been sitting dormant since the last all-time high peak.
If you have any follow up questions, let me know 🙂
