Passive income by running Docker containers

Passive income by running Docker containers

This type of passive money making is my favourite. You only have to set it up once and it starts making money from there. In short, the idea is that you sell your unused internet bandwidth to someone who can use your network as a proxy, for example if you want to watch a series on Netflix but it's not available in their country.

If you're already running Docker containers, it's not too much effort to put in a few more containers that use hardly any resources, but passively make money.

Below are some of the programs that you can use to make some money, if not more, at least to offset the electricity costs of your computer/server, or even more.

In each case, I'll give you the contents of the Docker compose I'm using, along with resource limits, so none of them will overload your machine (but it's a good idea to set this up for all your containers anyway).

Let's get started!

Honeygain

Looking for a reliable passive income website? Try this old-school player with a user-friendly dashboard. The earning potential is moderate, but they offer a $5 Sign Up Bonus through this link. With a payout limit and 12 successful payments to me, it's worth checking out.

  1. Sign Up here
  2. You will need to use your email address and password to authenticate. Replace "your@mail.com" and "yourstrongpassword" in the example.
  3. Docker compose:
    version: '3'

    services:
    honeygain:
      image: honeygain/honeygain
      container_name: honeygain
      command: -tou-accept -email your@mail.com -pass yourstrongpassword -device myserver
      restart: always
      network_mode: bridge
      cpus: 0.1
      mem_limit: 50M
  4. Docker run command:
    docker run -d --name honeygain --restart always --network bridge --cpus 0.1 --memory 50M honeygain/honeygain -tou-accept -email your@mail.com -pass yourstrongpassword -device myserver

Packetstream

Experience reliable and consistent passive income opportunities with this long-standing player in the game. With over 51 payments received and a moderate earning rate, they offer a weekly payout schedule on Friday nights with a reasonable 3% transaction fee.

  1. Sign Up here
  2. Open the Dashboard and locate the URL. Use the string after the equal sign at the end of your custom URL. You will need to use this for authentication. Replace the "XXXX" in the example.
  3. Docker compose:
    version: '3'

    services:
    packetstream:
      image: packetstream/psclient:latest
      container_name: packetstream
      environment:
        - CID=XXXX
      restart: always
      network_mode: bridge
      cpus: 0.1
      mem_limit: 50M
  4. Docker run command:
    docker run -d --name packetstream --restart always --network bridge --cpus 0.1 --memory 50M -e CID=XXXX packetstream/psclient:latest

Speedshare

After a long preparation, SpeedShare has been launched, another passive income source for you. They have created an application that you can run on Windows and Linux machines, or even Docker-based. Payments can be made by credit card at the moment, but PayPal and crypto payments will be available in the future.

There is no official Docker image for this, but I made one that you can use for free.

  1. Sign Up here
  2. Go to the Dashboard, click on Devices and replace 'myauthcode' with your own authentication code.

  3. Docker compose:
    version: '3'

    services:
      speedshare:
      image: feriman25/speedshare:latest
        container_name: speedshare
        restart: always
        environment:
        - AuthCode=myauthcode
        network_mode: bridge
        cpus: 0.1
        mem_limit: 70M
  4. Docker run command:
    docker run -d --name speedshare --restart always --network bridge --cpus 0.1 --memory 70M -e AuthCode=myauthcode feriman25/speedshare:latest

 

Verdict: To maximize your passive income, I suggest running all of the applications on all available devices as long as you can. The list above is based on my opinion, and your preferred apps may differ. Try them all out and make money effortlessly!
