Listnerds newbie's guid - Staking CTP on listnerds .png

Listnerds is my introduction to e-mail marketing

At first, I was a bit overwhelmed and didn't think this could be for me, but after using it for a few days, I already see the massive potential to utilize this for several different things I have in mind. Today I will not go into that though, I will use this blog to talk about staking the CTP token on Listnerds. I'm probably not the only new user that thinks my current CTP stake on Hive Engine is going to be helpful during my Listnerds adventure. Wrong! This stake is separate from the stake you may want to have on Listnerds, compare it to Splinterlands and SPS tokens. You can buy them on Hive engine, but you move them in-game to stake them and earn rewards. This is also what you need to do with your CTP tokens if you want to earn on Listnerds.

You can also choose to buy Listnerds tokens instead btw, I just happened to choose for CTP today.

The reason I'm writing this tutorial is to convince the other newbies to e-mail marketing that this is all quite a simple process, you just have to do it once, and then it's a piece of cake. Let's get to it so you can start earning, shall we?

I will leave you this screenshot from this post where you can find the links that will lead you to the white paper and other info about Listnerds.


This screenshot above sums it up nicely to have a simple understanding of how everything works. You can be part of one of the 3 categories: senders, stakers & receivers, or be them all. Currently, I'm a receiver & today I joined the stakers club. One of the next days I will send out my first e-mail to try how that works.

Staking CTP: A Step by step guide

Although you might think "I already have a CTP staked on HE, so I'm good", this is a different stake. I didn't realize this at first, but after walking through it, it makes sense as staking on Listnerds will earn you a portion of the rewards pool, so therefore you need to be a stakeholder there. It's very easy though, I will guide you through it as I've already staked a bit of CTP this morning.

First, I bought some CTP tokens on Hive-Engine which now needed to be transferred to Listnerds. To do so, I clicked on the CTP button at the top of the page.

You will now see your CTP balances here:

Click on the transfer in button. As you can see, I have 56.136 CTP liquid on Hive Engine.

Select the amount of CTP you want to deposit and click on the deposit button. I decided I want to stake 55 CTP so that I can easily see how much I have earned in a day due to the round number. It's just a start.

Just wait a few minutes, and then you'll see the CTP appear on your balance sheet.

Now we're going to stake the CTP, click on the stake button. This pop up will appear:

Select the amount CTP you want to stake and click on the stake button again.

Make sure you understand the fact that it takes 7 days to unstake CTP, and there will be no rewards during this 7-day window.

That's it! Once it's processed, you can see your stake here:

And on your balance sheet:

If you wish to unstake (part of) your CTP, you can do so by clicking on the unstake button.

Didn't I tell you it was simple?

It wasn't as complicated, was it? In the next days I will dedicate some time to write about the other parts of Listnerds as well, while I'm exploring the world of opportunities out there. I will show you what I've done, learned and maybe you can learn from my beginner's mistakes, who knows. If you think Listnerds is for you after reading this blog, I invite you to use my referral link so you can join my team and I will keep guiding you through your Listnerds journey so we can grow together and work on getting a nice passive income through Listnerds.

It's nice to see the process is easy. I plan on making an account on listnerds later to try it out. I can't go back on it since I did tell Jon I would do that.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Haha, and did you join? I'm going to send out a first email to do as a trial.

I did join in the end but I took a referral off the leomarkettalk chat. I thought it would spur some engagement.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Very good information. I have already placed my bet on ListNerds and I am excited about this new era of email. Regards

Thanks for this. I opened the site the other day when it was talked about in @LeoMarketTalk and immediately felt it was going to be too difficult without spending a couple hours figuring everything out.

It's one of the great things about LeoFinance; wait a while and somebody will come out with a tutorial. NOW, I can check it out without feeling like I'm swimming upstream.

Thanks again!

You're very welcome, I'm glad it was helpful to you.
I decided not to make a huge tutorial about the full site, as I often do (lol). But cut this into smaller parts and link them as the e-mail marketing is often also short(er) content than I'm used to writing.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

ok, I just signed up using your referral link. I'm not seeing how to link my Hive account to my Listnerds Account ? I have confirmed my email address as well

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

scratch that, once I clicked on CPT on the Top the option to connect my account appeared :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks for that, will check if I can see that tomorrow, already logged out. I also noticed your second comment already, so it's solved, good!

I will probably write another tutorial on that part tomorrow as I realized the connecting part was something people could miss.

Happy reading for now :) I'm going to check mine again in the AM.

good night!

so most of the other HIVE DAPS you can sign right in using keychain so I think some users may get snagged up on that unless they are prepared. Nice job on the site, I already staked some CTP & my 1 Listnerd + bought a small amount of Listnerd using your converter. I read an email as well. Now I'm just bouncing around the site getting acquainted.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

After you connected your account to listnerds you can sign in with Keychain. Works fine just need to know where to click I guess.

Will start with a getting started tutorial tomorrow and work my way through all the things newbies need to know.

@yieldgrower just wondering, did you confirm your email address? I didn't see any ref pop up yet and asked in the discord, they mentioned that it could be due to not clicking the confirmation yet. Trying to find out what went wrong :)

I hope you had some emails waiting for you already, I will write another tutorial about Listnerds later today.

Have a good Saturday!

ok, just sent in a ticket and here's what I wrote:

Hello, I signed up using the referral link on "thisismylife" article on Leo Finance but he says he did not get credit. I did click his link however there may have been an issue because instead of creating an account on Listnerds 1st , I attempted to login in with Hive Keychain. Most of the other DAPPS on HIVE already have your account connected so this may confuse others in the future. Please make sure he gets credited for his referral which brought me here. Thanks

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh that could be the reason and would be good to know indeed.
Thanks for mentioning that because it would be good to know if that can undo the ref link, so the speak.

Thanks for reaching out anyway, and honestly glad something went wrong soon after my post was published, that's better than when it's been used maybe 10-20 times and find out :)

I definitely did confirm my email and I used your referral link. I'm happy to confirm that with the admin so you get your proper referral for the sign up.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I believe you, BTW, I just wonder if something goes wrong and would love to know what exactly. hat case, could you shoot in a support ticket to mention you used my ref link to see what they reply?

Thank you kindly :-)

sure, no problem. Just grabbed a cup of coffee and was going to hop on to see if there's any mail in my inbox over there :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you, I asked in the CTP discord, and it should work so they will look into it. Could be something going wrong in the back-end. But then we'll find out :)

Enjoy the coffee, I only was able to read one e-mail today. I'm still in doubt on how to do a trial myself by sending out an e-mail.

I plan to do a quick post on Listnerds and my 1st impressions etc. I know I will become an investor in CTP & Listnerd and stake on their site. If I continue to blog here (I've been primarily curating and commenting) then I think it could be a great way to drive traffic to my posts. One question I have would be to find out if theres a way to specifically email existing members of Hive who have connected their profiles via Keychain, making the email sends more specified to someone who could also vote and comment on a post ?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Good questions, but I have yet to find out how the mailing exactly works, I'm still doubting to try that part out today and write about it or do another tutorial about another part.

Are you on Discord? If so, maybe you could join the CTP discord for answers by the founders or those that are familiar already?

Great tutorial the screen shots are very helpful. Awesome job on the cover graphic.

Thanks I love writing tutorials so I will cover all the aspects at some point probably :)

Thanks so much for covering ListNerds and all the things we are building!

And great to see you on the leaderboard as well :)

Thanks for stopping by, I will keep writing tutorials to have a nice collection and also publish them on a website at some point. Writing the content first though, and I'm very excited to build a team and send out e-mails myself! :)
