This month the BlockFi team has been hard at work. We launched Whitelisting, added a Wallet Address Book, and made updates to the BlockFi dashboard. This month we’re also announcing that we’ll be increasing our Tier 1 level for BTC and ETH (changes to take effect December 1, 2019).
BlockFi clients will be receiving their BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) interest payment on the first business day of December (12/02/19). Please note, with the U.S. Federal Holiday coming up, response times may be slower than usual on November 28th. In addition, if you’re applying for a loan it may take up to 48 hours to process.
Earn Even More With BTC and ETH Tier Increases
As a way to provide more earning opportunities for our clients, BlockFi is making the following tier adjustments, which will go into effect December 1, 2019.
- BTC balances of 0 to 10 BTC will now earn 6.2% APY (previously 0 to 5 BTC)
- Balances above 10 BTC will earn 2.2% APY
- ETH balances of 0 to 1000 ETH will now earn 4.1% APY (previously 0 to 500 ETH)
- Balances above 1000 ETH will earn 0.5% APY
*** This will mark our second significant ETH increase this quarter. We previously raised our Tier 1 ETH level from 200 ETH to 500 ETH earlier this month.

Whitelisting & Wallet Address Book
One of our clients’ most requested features was whitelisting, so we’re happy to announce that you now have the option to add crypto wallet addresses to your Wallet Address Book. This allows you to pre-select from frequently used crypto wallet addresses when withdrawing. Additionally, if you’d like to add another layer of security to your BlockFi account, you now have the option to enable Whitelisting.
You can read more about how to save wallet addresses to your Wallet Address Book and enable Whitelisting here.
We’ve updated our dashboard with a fresh new look that provides an overview of account balances across all products. You can check it out by signing into your BlockFi account here.
