Celsius to Begin Offering Compounding Interest on Crypto Deposits
Jack Martin's original article for cointelegraph.com reduced by 80%
Cryptocurrency lending and borrowing platform Celsius announced that it would be implementing compounding interest on cryptocurrencies deposited in its wallet, starting Feb. 1. Compounding interest was a feature requested by the Celsius community, and brings the community-driven app in line with venture capital-backed competitors like BlockFi, and traditional financial services.
"You asked for it, and we delivered! Starting February 1, interest income on crypto deposits will officially be COMPOUNDING! That's right - all the coins in your wallet will now be earning interest on interest!". Other changes announced in the AMA covered revamped loyalty tiers, the ability to lend against EOS tokens, and a partnership with South Korean cryptocurrency exchange, Korbit. As Cointelegraph reported lin August 2019, Celsius Network became the fastest growing crypto-lender with $2.2 billion in coin loan origination.
Crypto-lending platforms continue to grow in popularity, giving holders the opportunity to earn interest on their deposited assets, while also enabling the use of tokens as collateral against cash or stablecoin loans. Celsius offers varying interest rates on deposits of a wide range of popular cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin, along with coins such as Bitcoin Gold, Dash, ZCash and EOS. Higher interest rates of up to 10% are also available on a selection of stablecoins.
