FluidStack is a platform made for website owners where you get paid for renting out hard drive space and bandwidth. Since its private beta launch, FluidStack has gathered lots of users and has received positive feedback on BeerMoneyForum and Reddit. They pay only via PayPal and are available worldwide. You get paid for installing FluidStack’s software and renting out your hard drive space and bandwidth to video streaming sites.
In order to be able to join you need an uploading speed of at least 1 megabytes per second. Your payout depends on the speed of your internet speed and the time your computer is online. For example, if your upload speed is below 10 megabytes per second and your computer is online at least 12 hours a day, you’ll be paid $2.5 a month. If your internet speed is below 100 megabytes per second, you’ll be paid $5 a month. If it is above that, then you’ll be paid $10/100Mbps/month, up to $50. So for example, 250Mbps would be $20.
Before you can install FluidStack’s software you have to sign up for an account. You can sign up for one here. After signing up you have to download their installer. When you open the installer you’re asked for a cluster key. To get the key, head back to FluidStack’s website and create a cluster, then you’ll be provided a key. From there on you can just smash “next” and boom, you’re done and making money! If you face an UPnP error, follow this video on how to enable UPnP:
FluidStack has a basic referring system where you get paid based on your referred user’s activity. If your referral installs a node and is active for 7 days you’ll be paid $5.
My Experience With FluidStack
I’ve been using FluidStack since February and have had only great experiences with them. For example, I posted a topic about them on BeerMoneyForum and a week or two later they made their own, official topic. As a thank you from FluidStack for promoting them, they paid me $5 extra that month, which was rather generous of them. On top of that, they’ve generally been exact and have always paid me on time.
FluidStack is a great and honest startup that pays well to its users and appreciates them for being their members. Because the income is passive and doesn’t require you to do anything, I highly recommend joining with them. Here’s my most recent payment:
