BlockFi Interest Accounts

Add your review

Verdict: This platform offers fair and competitive BTC interest rates, with 6.5% compounding interest on savings which is paid out monthly in the currency of your choosing. Their stablecoin 9.3% USDT APY is also competitive and much higher rates than conventional banks, and to top it off, they recently reduced withdrawal fees. Although utilising variable rates, they have stayed pretty consistent throughout the years. Alongside all this, this platform is one of the most accessible, as it's available on both web & mobile.

Product is rated as #5 in category Interest Accounts

Founded in 2017, BlockFi Lending LLC is a centralised platform, giving a great way to earn interest on your crypto; all whilst providing fair and competitive rates for the majority of their assets. Their 4.5% interest on crypto-assets is competitive, but not the highest in the industry. We do like how the interest is compounding, and paid out monthly in the currency of your choosing (whether that's BTC, ETH, USDT etc), rather than a native token.

A drawback is that Blockfi experienced a security breach in May 2020, though no customer funds were lost. Since then, they have hired a new CSO to overlook the security of their platform.
