Celsius Network Interest Accounts

Add your review

APY rates ranging from 2.02-13.99% (no staking). Approx. 39 cryptocurrency & stablecoin assets to earn weekly compounding interest on. No withdrawal or deposit fees, outwards gas fees also covered by Celsius. Rates change depending on whether users are outside of the US. Users can optionally take payment in CEL, offering marginally increased rates. Those holding between 5-20% of their portfolio in CEL will receive additional discounts and rewards.

KYC checks ensure security & legitimacy but compromise anonymity. Backed by Fireblocks & Primetrust crypto-custodians. No lockup period & accessible via PC or mobile app. Automated support needs improvement, currently no live chat. Never suffered a security breach or hack since founding.

7.5/10 (Expert Score)
Product is rated as #8 in category Interest Accounts

Verdict: Good starting APY rates ranging from 2.02 - 17.78%. Supports a large number of assets, with approx. 39 cryptocurrencies and stablecoins to save & earn interest on. No withdrawal or deposit fees, with outward gas fees also covered by Celsius. Those in the US will receive no additional reward rates when staking, although in-kind reward rate (APY) for BTC also changes from 4.06 to 6.20%. KYC checks help maintain security but can compromise anonymity for some.

Insurance coverage unspecified, however they are backed by established crypto-custodians, Fireblocks & PrimeTrust; taking direct responsibility over the security of these assets. As a result, it’s more than likely that the majority of currency is kept offline in cold storage wallets, however this is unspecified. We would be extremely surprised if this was not the case, as it is the most secure storage method. Automated support which posts a number of relevant FAQ's, not very helpful for complex issues. Accessible via PC or mobile.
