The earnings were bigger than the previous week's, and I was excited to realize I had made more satoshi than ever. A new record!
However, my excitement was short-lived. The satoshi results were great, but unfortunately, the STEEM results not so much. Last week, my earnings were 14,099 satoshi, converted to 0.01966546 Dash, and traded for 7.090 STEEM through the BlockTrades website (Steemd transaction link). My previous record was 13,560 satoshi (539 satoshi less than this time) that had been traded for 8.079 STEEM (0.989 STEEM more than this time). This means I got less STEEM for the satoshi, which was a bit disappointing (almost 1 STEEM is a considerable difference). Just when I thought I was getting closer to earning 10 STEEM a week only from faucets... but such is life in the crypto world. As I write this, Bitcoin (satoshi) is dropping again. The ongoing week's satoshi results are looking promising, but we shall see if I'll get even less STEEM from my satoshi at the end of the week, or if the STEEM price will drop along with the Bitcoin price like it usually happens.

As for earnings from my other small investments, not much has changed. I got 1.030 STEEM from my 171 SP delegation to the Brazilians project, and 0.241 STEEM for holding 16.5 QuratorTokens. These two together make up 1.271 STEEM. Added to the faucet earnings, the total earnings from this experiment for last week became 8.361 STEEM, which I've powered up.
Even though the STEEM performance at the faucets has left a bit to be desired this time, this post marks 103.135 SP powered up in total from this experiment since its beginning, with 83.209 STEEM coming from the faucets, and the rest coming from the delegations, QuratorTokens etc.. It's still an important result, as it means this experiment has already given me more than 100 SP!
If anyone else is interested in growing SP through faucet earnings and would like to use the faucet websites I'm using, here's a post with more details and tips, and here's a short interview with a few more tips.
