It’s been 6 months since English Teacher Online started streaming live on Twitch, trusting XP Coin to pay for my game time in the brutal yet beautiful world that is Rust.
In that time, I’ve attracted nearly 400 followers and spoken with a number of key players. I’ve also been promoted to Content Creator in a number of Discord groups and collaborated with fellow streamers.
Meanwhile XP Coin has been focusing on integration, paying gamers for their time by inviting people like you and me to sign up through their rewards.xpcoin.io website.
My XP Coin Research Story
Since March 2018, I’ve earned over 100,000 XP Coins playing on the XP Coin Rust server. I’ve steadfastly watched a bear market in which the price of XP Coin has fluctuated between $0.0003 and $0.000017 – far below its peak of $0.005, hit during the last cryptocurrency bull run of January 2018.
That’s because I’m a HODL or HOLDER who believes in community and I’ll only cash out a percentage of my earnings when the price is right!
As we wait for another end of year bull run, I thought it would be interesting to calculate just how much money I may have earned so far?
Blog post price of $0.000025 x 100,000 = $2.50
January 2018 peak of $0.005 x 100k = $500
x1000 fantasy bull run projection of 2.5 cents = $2,500
Looking at the charts, we can see trends, patterns or opposing forces at work in the market. Each bull run is preceded by a triple or 4 times bear market as spiraling pessimism proves the doubters correct.
But for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, as the saying goes, and the signs suggest that another bull run (optimism) is about to happen just as big institutional money enters the market. And because the XP Coin price is pegged to Bitcoin, we should see at least moderate to substantial gains by late 2018 – early 2019.
I’ve never bought any XP Coin with my own money and always played on their server assuming that I wouldn’t see a dime. Yet at the time of writing this blog I have $2.50 in my XP Coin wallet. Real money for doing what I love doing in my free time, role playing, building, raiding and surviving in the brutal yet beautiful world of Rust.
I also have some XP Coin sitting in a staking pool making more XP Coin!
I don’t know what the price will be in January 2019 but I’m preparing to cash out 20% of my XP Coin next time the bull run’s high. There’s still 3 months to get in the game!
It’s A No-Brainer
You play Rust anyway and you don’t need to spend a penny. Simply join me on the XP Coin Rust server and earn some XP Coin of your own. See what happens with the next bull run. You could make a dollar, $100 or more.
In 3 months you can decide whether to cash out and exchange your XP for LTC or DOGE – or keep earning, building a nice little college fund or house deposit.
It’s a no-brainer because you’re going to play Rust anyway!
Bear Market – A condition in which security, stock or cryptocurrency prices fall and widespread pessimism causes the downward spiral to be self-sustaining. Investors anticipate losses as pessimism and selling increases.
Bull Run (Bullrun) – A period of optimism, investor confidence and expectations that strong results should continue. Greed encourages speculators to hold on for impossible profits instead of cashing out before the next inevitable crash.
This week English Teacher Online got an exclusive XPCoin May 2018 update and off-road map from DigiWarFare, the XPCoin developer and executive responsible for writing computer code that allows me to earn XPCoins playing Rust!
He explained that XPCoin was rebranded last year and is making great strides forward without the usual cash boost an ICO brings. Despite this major financial hurdle, XPCoin has obtained investment from within the gaming community. It has more than 20 VPS (Virtual Private Servers), and a vast staff dedicated in their quest to monetize computer gaming and integrate it into the mainstream 21st century economy.
Integration was the theme of our interview as Digi explained the 3 step process needed to get independent game developers onboard using XPCoin. We also discussed the role of XPCoin investors versus consumers, and a no holds barred appraisal of those who would disrupt his organization in their pursuit of a quick buck.
Digi has logged over 2000 hours playing Rust and I could tell that it has a special place in his game playing heart. Despite it’s ruthless and salty reputation (built up over many years in Beta), Rust has so much potential. As a social experiment, Rust gives psychologists ongoing insights into role playing minds that you just don’t get from other games.
It’s no surprise then that Digi made Rust a top priority when it came to paying gamers for their time. That’s why I was one of the first to sign up to ladder.xpcoin.io and start earning XPCoins. As promised, here is a screenshot showing latest payments into my XPCoin Wallet.
Digi also explained how Rust events (that run around the clock) are designed to help the community grow. Economy points are paid to event winners and losers alike, so there’s even more incentive to improve your combat skills in game.
The XPCoin Rust server only has 200 slots and Digi is keen to “stress test” having that many players all earning XPCoins at the same time – I don’t have a crystal ball but I do prophesize that this server will be full very soon!
Digi is now off to monetize 7 days to Die, but he will still be tracking Rust through his admin panel and listening closely to Gabriel in the XPCoin Rust admin team.
It certainly is an exciting time to be part of the XPCoin Crypto-Gaming space and I am very grateful to DigiWarFare for sharing his vision for May, 2018 and beyond exclusively with English Teacher Online. Please comment, like, share, follow or subscribe to show your support.

As student debts strangle, house prices soar, pensions evaporate and we all struggle to make ends meet, English Teacher Online feels obliged to point out the relationship between broken money and the rise of cryptocurrency.
Once again this week, America faces a government shutdown. The American debt is over 20 trillion dollars and has surpassed the GNP in debt – America is officially a debtor nation. They are trying to grow their way out of it but it probably won’t work.
Why is Money Broken?
Since 1913, the way money is created in the economy has changed dramatically. In 1913, both the Federal Reserve Act and the Internal Revenue Service were created and passed as law in shady circumstances. Most of the country knew about it and had strong feelings about it but today maybe 80% of US citizens have no clue what the Federal Reserve is, much less who most of their debt is owed too.
In the 1970s, America left the gold standard completely which was the final part of a plan to break the people’s money. Prior to this Fort Knox and other mints backed US currency with gold. Today, there is no gold in Fort Knox – money is not backed by any tangible asset. In fact, money is not money anymore – money is debt.
Money Is Debt
Every dollar in existence, the money in your paycheck, the money you buy groceries with, the money you pay your cable bill with – it’s all debt borrowed into existence. The money is borrowed from the Federal Reserve, from the treasury as a low interest loan and the Government pays fees eternally. They also sell Treasury bills with a guaranteed rate of return to citizens and other countries.
What this means is Congress no longer mints money. The founding fathers had strong feelings about central banks, having left England for financial and religious freedom. Thomas Jefferson called Central Banks, “a greater threat to liberty than a standing army.”
How Are We Chained To Broken Money?
Now we have identified the instrument of debt for all Americans, we now need a way of chaining them to this debt – and here comes the rise of the Internal Revenue Service. Any idea that a Government should tax anyone on their income is regressive. People should be taxed on consumption not production. When the IRS was first put into law, taxation was never meant to exceed 3%.
So now you can see the US Dollar is a currency backed by nothing, created by a quasi-federal bank that creates debt and lends the money they created out of thin air to the Treasury, that creates a debt on the American people.
They also determine the interest rate and regulate the amount of inflation in the economy by contracting or expanding the amount of money in the economy. They receive an interest payment every year as part of the taxes levied on the American people.
Who on Earth Would Create a System Like This?
Well, the answer is the world banking industry.
Banks know that debt can be represented as an asset on their balance sheet and they can use that asset as financial leverage across the world – and they do!
For banks, a loan is an asset – for us, a loan is a liability.
Banks leverage these assets and create more loans leveraged against them. So they can lend against this asset up to 100X depending on the bank.
Our monetary policy needs to change. We need to leave this system of usury that enslaves most of the world population regulated by Central Banks.
Why Hasn’t It Changed Already?
Any country that attempts to change the status-quo becomes the enemy and is subjected to the military. A great deal of war, death and misery is inflicted on those who attempt to break free from this control by the global power system.
Banks finance war on both sides so the winner is irrelevant to them – banks always win. War stimulates the economy, and that’s one of the reasons we have wars.
The last American president who attempted to end this financial slavery was assassinated.
It’s all about money and control.
How Can People Take Back Their Money?
This is why Cryptocurrency is so appealing to people all around the world. A decentralized currency is worth what people think it’s worth. It is free of government control and therefore is not an instrument of debt. It can move freely from person to person, across state and country lines almost instantaneously and without crippling fees or governmental intervention.
This is why many countries and banks hate it.
The financial and insurance industries are afraid. Banks make money in bonds, annuities and securities – giving little or no return for the money you invest, while they make 200% on your money. Banks are trying to destroy crypto or control it if they can. They recently attempted to take all the value out of the crypto-market by shorting it. But there are thousands of new people each day moving in to support it.
Money is Broken and the People Can See!
People have decided to stop playing the bankers’ game. As billions flow into the crypto-market, new exchanges can’t take the load sometimes. The market could top 5 trillion dollars in 2018, with huge wealth transfers from across the globe.
Money has changed forever and the genie is not going back in the bottle. This is not about tulips or bubbles and any person who says otherwise has no understanding of the modern global economy or is trying to support the current system for their own gains.
In 2020, people globally may have no memory of a time when there were no decentralized currencies. People are choosing liberty on an individual scale. Once we take back our money, we have a better chance of freedom.
