4. Delegate

Delegation is something like borrowing money (HIVE Power) to another member of Hive blockchain. In other words, it is a type of investment. When you delegate your HP (Hive Power) to a particular community or member, you will receive dividends from him/her. It depends on the delegatee (a person to whom you delegate).

For example, I delegated to @upmewhale 1,300HP and every day I receive around 0.360 Hives (around 0.08USD$).

Some delegatees pay dividends only once a week. Some delegatees which represent a community can pay extra dividends in community’s tokens.

For example, Actifit community pays dividends in HIVE once a week. Also, they pay dividends in their own token AFIT every day.

5. Participate in contests

Contests, competitions, events, giveaways are always a good way to meet new people and to earn money. And hive is not an exception. There are different photo contests, writing contests, game contests etc in HIVE.
