How to Buy Crypto Currencies 101 on Binance

I recently just learned how to buy Crypto Currencies on Binance (All thanks to my friend and co-founder, Kevin). I never really thought of purchasing digital coins before, because I had to pay my loans and we had a lot of things going on. Now that I have paid all of my credit card debt and I know that I can pay it off fully every due date, I had a little bit of cash to test the waters and buy coins.

For all beginners reading this, it fine if you want to test is out and buy crypt currencies with only $50 (around Php 2500). From my research, what investors would advice beginners is to test the waters first using up to $250 dollars first. Figure your way out first and learn how to use an exchange like Binance.

Since this is a post on how to start with Binance, let’s get started.

How to buy crypto currencies on Binance

Step 1: Sign up here This link will lead you to Binance. Have the following by your side when you sign up: Passport, Proof of billing like utility bills with your name and address and download already the Google Authenticator App from the App Store or Google Playstore. So be ready with these things as you will need to have yourself verified and this is the first step on how to buy crypto currencies.

Step 2 (Feel free to skip this if you wish): Once you are verified. Go to the TASK CENTER. From what I know you will see this. One of the tasks that you haven’t complete yet (of course) is to “Buy at least $50 worth of crypto” and you will get a beginners pack. The beginners pack is actually 1000 BUSD which is almost or most likely equivalent to 1000 US Dollars that you will need to keep for 7 days in Binance Earn (sort of like the savings account of Binance). You can’t withdraw or transfer your Trial Fund but you’ll enjoy the annualized interest generated by the subscribed Savings product with the Trial Fund as the initial capital. Basically, what this task shows you is that Binance has other features like this. I bought USDT since I thought initially that you can transfer it and use it to buy coins. I suggest that you try it out with BTC or Bitcoin instead.

Before we proceed on the steps on how to buy crypto currencies, let’s go through some definition of terms first. Bitcoin or BTC was the original crypt currency so you’ll see a lot of reference to it. Account balances are show in BTC, too. The other coins in the market such as Ethereum or ETH, Binance or BNB, DOGE or SHIBA INU or SHIB (or whatever coins you may have heard of) are called ALT coins. Now there are also STABLE coins like USDT or USD Tether and BUSD which are close to the amount of the dollar.

What I do is that I buy stable coins first then convert it to the coins that I’d like to buy when I want to or when it hits a certain price.

STEP 3: To buy STABLE COINS (what I use is USDT), just click on Buy Crypto and you can use any of these. I use Credit and Debit Card. P2P trading is where you buy from another person.

For P2P, this is how the screen will look like. Set the currency to PHP and choose how you want to pay the other person for buying your stable coin.

Some reminders, which I learned from Ken Ken, one of my friend who is into Crypto Currency trading, you have to check on the number of orders and the percentage completion of the orders. The higher the number of orders and rate of completion, the better it is to deal with that person.

Step 4: Once you have your stable coin in your Binance account, it’s time to purchase a currency. Before purchasing though, please do your own research. You can check out https://coinmarketcap.com/ I’m not here to tell you what to purchase, but please do read up before buying. Also, only use funds that you are willing to lose. Truth be told, I’m just experimenting right now and in the same stage as you, so I am not in the position to give advice.

So let’s proceed on how to buy coins on Binance. There are multiple ways to purchase a coin.

A. Go to Wallet then click on Fiat and Spot. It will take you to this page. You can either click on Buy or Trade your USDT for BTC.

if you chose Buy, it will take you to this page where you will can directly purchase the currency that you like.

B. My recommendation though is to click on TRADE after you have purchased STABLE COINS. You can watch my friend Marvin’s video on why here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv7UULOQ-7Q

So when you click on trade, (in this example, I want to buy BTC/USDT meaning I will trade my USDT for BTC), it will show me this page.

It looks complicated but just read up more on trading. I will try to invite a person to interview to talk about crypto currency trading soon on my Youtube channel. If you know people, please recommend them to me too! 🙂

Anyway, scroll down to the fields below.

For this guide for Beginners, I’ll talk about Market and Limit. Basically, when you click on Market, you buy (or sell) based on the current market rate. You will just need to place the amount of USDT that you are willing to spend, just like this.

Then just click on Buy BTC and voila! You will have that crypto in your Binance Wallet.

Now for limit, if you have an idea of at what rate would you like to buy (or sell) this currency, place the rate in the Price field and then move the line to how much of your USDT are you willing to spend when the price reaches your indicated price.

In this case, you are willing to spend 82% of your USDT when the price reaches 56500.

Step 5: To check if it’s in your wallet, just click on this – Wallet >> Fiat and Spot or click on Overview.

So that’s it for today. I hope I explained clearly on how to purchase crypto currencies on Binance. Again, if you don’t have a Binance account yet, you can click here: https://www.binance.com/en/register?ref=O3SBEE8M

Please check that you are in Binance.com since there are some phishing sites that replicate Binance.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below so that I can help you out or I can get someone to help you out! haha! As you know, I’m just still starting like you.

Why did I start purchasing Crypto?

I just thing that the time will come when most of us will be using this as currency. Right now, I don’t really see myself day trading this, because I know that I am more likely to hold on to these currencies and see what will happen. Plus, I know that I have a lot to learn still. So… let’s learn together. I wanted to start with the topic how to buy crypto currencies, but I promise to share new learnings with you.

According to author Anya Santos-Uy: “This pandemic has put a strain on our already less-than-ideal public education system. I thought about the children, whose families were greatly affected by the loss of income brought about by the lockdowns. If food was a challenge, what more educational materials? Feeding kids’ stomachs is just as important as feeding their minds.”

“Alpabeto ng Kalikasan” is a colorful one-of-a-kind alphabet book that features Phlippine flora and fauna from A to Z. The book was written by Anya Santos-Uy with illustrations by Jay Javier and Baybayin script by Dustin Ancheta and Alain Austria.

Here’s How To Boost Your Personal Profits

Are you looking for ways to improve your finances? If so, then it makes sense to treat your personal finances like you would a company cash account. You need to make sure that you are saving in the right areas and seizing different opportunities as they present themselves. Here are some of our key suggestions.

Think About Taxes Carefully  

First, it’s worth thinking about how you can get more from your taxes at certain points throughout the year. If you take the right steps, then you’ll be able to guarantee that you do save money on your taxes. The key thing to look at here is tax deductions because this can save you a fortune on your final tax dues. It’s particularly important if you are running your own company. The right deductions could end up saving you an absolute fortune over an extended period. 

Explore The Best Investment Opportunities

You should also be looking at the right investment opportunities that are available on the market. If you research, you’ll find that there are a range of investment possibilities that might be worth considering. Something that you should pay particular focus to is cryptocurrency. You might think that crypto like bitcoin is beyond your price point and you are absolutely correct there. But, what you can do is look at the smaller Bitcoin that has a massive potential to go boom. Some of these are more volatile than others and tools such as Swyftx will provide you with the opportunity to explore this massive market. 

Hire An Accountant Or Financial Planner

You could also think about hiring an accountant or a financial planner. To boost your personal profits, you can get great advice from an expert. An accountant could help you find money in your personal budget that you didn’t realize was there in the first place. Ultimately, this could allow you to make huge gains with your investment decisions. You’ll also have more money to spend on various aspects of your life. A financial planner can point you in the direction of the investment options that make the most sense for you and could help you earn an absolute fortune, even over a limited period.

Save Where Possible

Finally, you need to make sure that you are saving where possible. Ideally, you should aim to save money in a variety of areas of your life. There are lots of easy ways to save these days. One of the best is to make sure that you are going green. If you go green then you can cut your costs right back. For instance, even changing your water usage could cut more than 25% off your energy bill overall and put you in a far stronger position financially.

We hope this helps you understand some of the best ways that you can boost your personal profits and make more money in the long run. The benefit of doing this is that you will put yourself in a far stronger position for the future. 

Some of My BreastFeeding Essentials with Orange and Peach PH Giveaway!

So yesterday, on Facebook and TikTok, I shared my breastfeeding must-have haul from Orange and Peach PH. I already started shopping and since it’s Lazada’s 5.5 Sale today, I thought it might be interesting for you, especially if you are expecting parents, to read this. So first off, before I give you a more in depth explanation about each product, let me share the short video of the things that I got from Orange and Peach PH for breastfeeding.

Orange and Peach PH Improved Natural Nipple Balm

Orange and Peach PH Improved Natural Nipple Balm

When I gave birth to my first child, I knew that I was prepared to breastfeed. I attended classes and I read a lot about breastfeeding. But when the first few days came and I tried breastfeeding Zeeka, I had sore nipples! My nipples bled, so after four days, I had to call a lactation consultant to help me out. After she taught me, Zeeka latched on and sucked masterfully. But, I had to protect my nipples with balm or cream.

So I am already purchasing this early on. This particular Orange and Peach PH balm is made from Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s Lanolin-free and made from natural ingredients. It comes with a spatula so that you can hygienically apply it to your nipples after each feeding.

Orange and Peach PH Milk Saver Pump

Orange and Peach Milk Saver Pump

I love this manual pump since it’s small and portable. I tried bring my electric pump into the hospital when I gave birth to Zeeka, but I wasn’t allowed. You can only bring manual pumps like these. So to use this Milk Saver Pump, here are the steps:

  1. Place the breast pump directly over your breast and make sure that your nipple is comfortable inside the flange.
  2. Squeeze the base of the pump 2-3x to create that suction effect.
  3. Sit back, relax and watch the pump collect all your precious milk.
  4. If no milk comes out after a couple of minutes (2 mins), release the pump, reposition and attach again. Make sure that there is no gap between the flange and your breast to ensure efficient suction.

This pump is BPA free and Phthalates free. It’s made out off 100% food Grade Silicone.

Personally, what I do is that I use it to pump on the other breast while my baby is latching on to the other breast. And I also use it in between feedings to make my body think that my baby needs more. I try to create more supply by increasing demand. Ain’t economics great?

Orange and Peach PH Milk Saver Breast Shells

Milk Saver Breast Shells

I’ve heard that some moms didn’t really find use for this, but in my case, it was a life saver especially during the times when I had sore and cracked nipples. Since you know that you will be leaking milk, you usually place pads. During the time though that I had sore/cracked nipples, when my nipples would stick to the pads, it would hurt. I used this so that nothing touches my nipples since the plastic elevates and protects your nipples. Plus you get to collect breast milk.

I would also use it during feeding to catch the milk from the other breast. There are times, like early mornings, when I’m tired to pump the other side. I would just collect milk using this then have the baby latch on to that side once s/he is done with the first breast.

Orange and Peach PH Breastmilk Storage bags and Breastmilk Storage Bottles

Breastmilk Storage Bottles
Breastmilk Storage bags

We all know that breastmilk is liquid gold and we’ll do anything to store it safely. Seriously, the first time that I expressed milk and spilled some, I cried. So storing breastmilk safely is very important.

When I have extra milk to store, I place it inside bags and keep it frozen. Frozen breastmilk lasts 3-6 months. Then for the milk that I know that I would use in a few hours, I keep it refrigerated using the bottle. Refrigerated breastmilk last for 48 hours and previously frozen milk stored in the refrigerator will last 24 hours. Same (24 hours) with breastmilk that you transport via cooler. For freshly expressed milk kept at room temperature, it only lasts for 4 hours.

We were very particular with this so that baby doesn’t drink spoiled milk. We’ve noticed that the baby gets gassy, too.

So if you want to check out these breastfeeding tools, just visit Orange and Peach PH in Lazada.

GIVEAWAY ALERT!

Three people will win a 1K voucher for shopping at Lazada. All you need to do is to follow Orange and Peach PH accounts in Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. If you’re not present in one of these platforms, it’s okay. You can still join.

Earth 2: Own a Piece of Land in Virtual Earth

As I look outside my window, I see Manila Golf Club. It would be amazing to own a piece of land here in BGC. The cost of land is too high. If I were to buy land later on, it would probably be far from Metro Manila. But there is a world where I own part of the golf course that I see outside my window. It’s a world not known to many yet called Earth 2.

It’s a game where all of us can actually by pieces of land. The land that we live in was divided into 10mx10m spaces that you can purchase. The prices are driven by all the players in Earth 2. You can purchase unpurchased land, bid on purchased lands and sell your own land.

Each of my properties in Earth 2 has property deed details view confirming Land Class, Land Title, Deed Identifier, Controlled Status, Purchase Price, Market Value, Sale Status, list of exact unique Tile IDs including longitude and latitude plus addresses for each tile within related property.

The creator of the game is Shane Isaac. He introduced himself to the public last January 2021.

I’m not sure if a lot of people from the Philippines are playing this game, but I see a lot of Philippine flags already that claimed areas in the map. You’ll see leaderboards that will show you the net worth of the players. There is also an inter-user trading price (Market Value) per country determined real time.

You can add credit balances to your Earth 2 wallet and you can use those credits to purchase land in the game. If you want to purchase lands that other players own, you can go to Marketplace. MarketPlace list of all properties for sale by other users listing key data, number of tiles, land class, country, Market Value, Advertised Price, % vs Market Value displayed in Best Value order.

If you want to start playing this game, you can use my Earth 2 Code: UET99P2I3F to get a 5% discount on the piece of land that you’ll purchase.

What to remember:

This is a game and it’s not a trading platform. Please do not invest or play with money that you cannot afford to lose in the end. Since this is a new game, we really don’t know how long this game will last.

Why I played:

It’s interesting to see where the creators will bring this. I’m a fan of Ready Player One, and game playing with Virtual Reality or the idea of a virtual world interests me.

Plus, It’s just nice to know that I own a piece of that golf course when I look outside my window! 🙂

To play, just go to: https://earth2.io/ Again, to buy land, use my code UET99P2I3F to get a 5% discount on the piece of land that you’ll purchase.
