And the platform is likewise preparing to release a BlockFi credit card which will produce another income stream.

this on their site. Now let’s speak about the returns. If you are viewing this video, you want to make money by transferring your coins on among the platforms right? Before we compare the rates, there are a few things that you should think about though. When it comes to using interest on your coins, every platform has particular limits and terms. For example, Celsius Network changes the rates every week to reflect the current market scenario. You are only able to make greater rates if you choose to get the interest in Celsius’s own energy token. The higher benefit rates are likewise not available for US residents. If you would not wish to pay out your rewards in the CEL token, you can presently anticipate to receive 5.05% on your Ethereum, 3.51% on your Bitcoin, and 10% interest on your deposits in Binance USD or USDC which is the stablecoin from Coinbase. On BlockFi, the rate for your Ethereum and Bitcoin deposits depends on the variety of your assets. The more bitcoin or ethereum you deposit, the less interest you will get. The interest rate for Ethereum varieties in between 0.5% and 4.5%, the rate for bitcoin is between 0.5% and 5%, and the rate for the two stablecoins is presently at

 

9% each year. What deserves mentioning is that if you wish to conserve some fees, and bring more stability into your crypto interest account, you can likewise transfer the Binance USD coin for which you will not need to pay the substantial gas fee, as the currency runs on the Binance Smart Chain with way lower charges in contrast to stablecoins that work on the ethereum network. The Binance USD coin is currently just supported on Celsius Network and BlockFi. YouHodler uses presently the most competitive rates for your USDC coins without the requirement to stake the platform’s own utility tokens. You can earn 12% interest on your USDC holdings and the platform uses 5.5% on Ethereum and 4.8% on your bitcoin deposits. Nexo is another platform that offers greater rewards for those who wish to receive the interest in the native NEXO tokens instead of the deposited currency. The platform uses 6% for non-Nexo token holders on bitcoin and ethereum and 10% on the USDC coin. What you must keep in mind is that platforms tend to change the rates from time to time, so you can’t truly forecast the real return from your deposits. Also, remember that by depositing your crypto, the worth of the currency might reduce Which will make it hard for you to liquidate your properties if that’s something you would otherwise think about. So now, that you understand the returns let’s briefly review the credibility of the platforms and their performance history. Celsius Network is most likely the most genuine platform in this area. The founder Alex Mashinsky is a popular business owner. Before launching the Celsius network, he has co-founded 3 startups worth more than $1 Billion each. On the Celsius App, you are also able to keep an eye on the development and evaluate a few of the data. As we are taping this video, there are over 650,000 users and the platform is managing $17 billion worth of properties. Alone in the last 12 months, Celsius has Blockfest 2017

paid more than $367 M worth of rewards. While we have not managed to get answers to our concerns, the CEO does hold a weekly AMA session where he is attending to the most frequently asked questions, which is something rather uncommon in this area. The platform is not transparent when it pertains to sharing its monetary reports, however with a little bit of digging, you can get your hands on the monetary report for 2020, where you will discover that the platform is not profitable yet. BlockFi is co-founded by Zac Prince and Flori Marquez. The CEO Zac Prince has more experience within business development space rather than the fintech area. BlockFi is also funded by many institutional investors and the platform is generally targeting the United States market. While you can use the crypto interest account worldwide, the crypto loans are offered Only for U.S residents as BlockFi has the necessary loaning licenses just in the U.S. , if you want to inspect BlockFi’s statistics you will not be pleased as there are none offered.. Some external sources suggest that there are more than 125,000 registered users, however, we were unable to confirm any of those claims directly with BlockFi. YouHodler is founded by Ilya Volkov, who brings previous experience from the fintech space in Russia. According to our research study, it looks like he has transferred to Switzerland to launch his crypto lending platform YouHodler in 2017. I understand that YouHodler has been applauded by a few of you in the comments on previous videos, regrettably, the platform isn’t openly revealing any monetary reports, nor stats about their user base or possessions under YouHodler’s management. When using YouHodler, this is something you should certainly think about. Carrying on to Nexo. Nexo claims to handle $12 B worth of assets from more than 1.5 M of users. It would imply that Nexo is twice as huge in terms of user base as Celsius with a much lower average if this is correct

 

deposit amount as compared to the users on the Celsius Network. We are not thrilled about Nexo’s reporting requirements as we have pointed out together with other warnings in our previous video. At the start of January, Nexo had just $4B under its management from 1 M users, now 5 months later on, the platform declares to manage $12B from 1.5 M users, which we believe is a bit of a steep growth even if we consider the buzz in the crypto area. So what about Nexo’s management? Nexo is co-founded by Antoni Trenchev and Kosta Kantchev. Based upon our research study, Antoni was a Bulgarian politician with experience in the fashion Retail market. On his LinkedIn profile, he describes Nexo as the leading controlled banks for digital properties. I would be actually interested by whom Nexo is managed, as the business doesn’t have a lending license in Estonia, where they are a legal entity Nexo Provider OU is based. Throughout our research study, we discovered connections to Bulgaria, Estonia, the UK, and the Cayman Islands however their legal address is nowhere to be found on the site. The 2nd co-founder of Nexo is Kosta Kantchev who also established Credissimo, a Bulgarian payday advance loan business that apparently is funding Nexo. According to our current research study, the executive board doesn’t even include Antoli, but just Kosta and two other gentlemen, from which one is William Arthur Vesilind who was previously the executive director at TrustBuddy, a Swedish p2p financing platform, which is understood for the “abuse of clients money”. Likewise when evaluating some of Nexo’s comments from the CEO

Nexo is the only platform that uses interest on fiat. Now that we have actually evaluated some of the track records of the four discussed platforms, let’s briefly go over the usability of every crypto financing site. While the crypto loans on BlockFi are only available to U.S. citizens, the platform is also working on a Bitcoin rewards credit card which will be competing with the credit card from Crypto.com YouHodler offers some of the most innovative services amongst the crypto lending platforms.

 

currencies on which you are able to make interest. YouHodler allows you to exchange in between different currencies or deposit fiat through bank wire or other supported payment services. The minimum deposit amounts are really low, so you do not require to move numerous Euros or Dollars to evaluate the platform. The minimum deposit is around 50 EUR or USD worth of cryptocurrency. As YouHodler does not have a banking license, you can only earn interest on your crypto possessions. Apart from making interest on your deposits or exchanging cryptos, YouHodler also uses you the choice to obtain fiat money in exchange for collateral. The platform currently supports only loans in us dollars or euros. YouHodler is likewise one of the platforms with flexible loan terms and an optimum LTV of 90%. Apart from those services, YouHodler also provides two leveraging tools such as Turbocharged loans and Multi HODL, which are suitable for more opportunistic investors. As the functionality of those functions goes beyond this video, you can discover how it works in our devoted youhodler evaluation on p2pempire. Nexo’s functionality resembles Celsius Network. Nexo is also utilizing its energy tokens to use better rates on loans, greater interests on crypto and fiat deposits, or more totally free withdrawals per month. Likewise if you decide to stake your coins or fiat, suggesting you lock your assets for a defined term, you can get a greater rates of interest. Like BlockFi, Nexo also uses you to purchase, or exchange crypto if you wish to hold your assets in different currencies. Now you have an actually strong concept of what every crypto lending platform is using. What you must think about though, is that as quickly as you deposit your crypto on any platform, you are not owning your personal secrets any longer and your assets might get compromised either by 3rd parties or by the platform itself. It resembles transferring your crypto on the exchange – if you don’t own the keys, the coin isn’t technically yours anymore. Platforms like Celsius and BlockFi are extremely clear about the fact that you Blockfest 2017

 

The only method to safeguard your crypto is to save it on a devoted hardware wallet like this one from Trezor. The disadvantage of this strategy is that you will only benefit from the increased worth of your coin but not the interest on your deposits, which is something you can do on one of the crypto loaning platforms. Based on our in-depth contrast, let’s have an appearance at our independent rankings of every category for every platform.
