BlockFi Interest Account (BIA)
Annual Percentage Yield (APY)*

BlockFi Interest Account clients can deposit their crypto and earn interest.

Paid out at the beginning of every month, the interest earned by account holders compounds, increasing the annual yield for our clients.

CurrencyAmount **APY
BTC (Tier 1)0 - 2.56%
BTC (Tier 2)> 2.53.0%
ETH> 05.25%
LTC> 05.0%
USDC> 08.6%
GUSD> 0 8.6%
PAX> 08.6%
PAXG > 05%
USDT> 09.3%

* APYs reflect effective yield based on monthly compounding. Actual yield will vary based on account activity and compliance with BlockFi’s terms and conditions. Rates are largely dictated by market conditions, which are a key factor in a company’s ability to provide its clients yield on their crypto assets. For more information, please see our recent post on how the market drives crypto lending and our Terms of Service. Rates are subject to change. BlockFi will communicate any rate changes prior to these changes taking effect. Digital currency is not legal tender, is not backed by the government, and the BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) is not a bank account nor a brokerage account, and is not subject to FDIC or SIPC protections.


**Although there is no minimum balance required to earn interest, accounts are still subject to Gemini’s withdrawal minimums: 0.003 BTC and 0.056 ETH. Withdrawals for balances smaller than these amounts may take up to 30 days to process.


***BlockFi Interest Accounts are available in most countries worldwide and all U.S. states other than NY

Crypto-Backed Loan Rates

The amount of USD you can borrow depends on the amount of collateral you post against the loan, and which loan-to-value (LTV) ratio you secure. LTV is determined by the amount of the loan divided by the value of the collateral for that loan.

50%9.75%2%
35%7.9%2%
20%4.5%2%

Please Note: This information applies only to clients in the United States. Different terms apply to international clients. Additionally, 20% LTV is only eligible for BTC-backed loans of up to $20k USD. Certain restrictions may apply. Promotional terms can be read here.
