Once the maggots or larvae are fed and fattened, they are extracted, properly cleaned, and processed into a proven to be highly nutritious, protein filled livestock feed, which is sold globally! There’s unlimited ways one can make a profit out of natural resources, all you have to do is think outside the box.

Investing in Stocks/Cryptocurrencies

Nowadays, one of the biggest businesses online is the stock and cryptocurrency market. People invest in stocks from world-renowned companies like Amazon, Tesla, Facebook, knowing that the values of these companies’ stocks can go either up or down. If the value goes up, you can sell your stocks and make a profit. There are ways one can anticipate the market values of stocks, and many people managed to earn millions out of it. With cryptocurrencies, it’s similar. Let’s take bitcoin as an example. There’s a limited amount of bitcoin around the whole world, and the amount keeps going down and down, due to losses through failed accounts and conversions. The value of a bitcoin was the lowest when it first came out, however, now there is about half of what there was when it started, and the more limited it becomes, the higher its value goes in time.
