I am getting increasingly sick of my job and hope to get enough passive income to cover my expenses to retire early. I put most of my savings in BTC and have accumulated a few of them. I found [5 different cefi platforms](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1f6DwnVbrBameGwtbtjaW8VGPZgRtRjxyDDyjIFiNL_w/edit#gid=0) that are relatively reliable and now mostly put btc in them earning between 4.5%-7.5% in interests. But the interest on BTC and limit has been steadily dropping. One of the platforms also lost funds in a defi project which makes me nervous.
Are there any other ways to earn some passive income? I don’t mind do some work either. Is running a lightening network node profitable if one can say commit 1-2 btc? Are there projects like stacks you can stake btc?
thanks a lot.
