Diversifying Investment Portfolio with a Loan

One of the more popular things we see BlockFi clients doing with their crypto asset-backed loans is diversifying their investments. By investing in a variety of assets, you set yourself up to receive the highest return for the minimum amount of risk. Typically, investors purchase a mixture of stocks, fixed income products, and commodities. Blockchain and crypto provide a completely new portfolio of financial products available for investment.

Diversification is often considered the safest investment strategy because it spreads your risk over different asset classes. BlockFi clients range from real estate investors to crypto traders.

Diversifying Investments with a Crypto Loan – Real Estate

Whether you’re a first-time home-buyer or looking at commercial real estate opportunities, the future value of a property has big implications on your purchase decision. But before you reach that stage, most investors need to obtain a mortgage.

A lot of time and resources go into obtaining a loan from a bank. And if you claim cryptocurrency assets on your application, a bank is more likely to turn you down, preventing the opportunity to obtain financing for portfolio diversification. And, after purchasing the property, it becomes much easier to get a loan from a bank, since you already own the equity in the property.

Buying Stocks with a Crypto Backed Loan

For many investors, obtaining capital to increase their stock positions is always a challenge. This is especially true for crypto asset investors. Now that the Blockchain ecosystem also offers the ability to long and short assets, there are even more financial products to take advantage of.

With BlockFi, you can leverage your crypto holdings towards a USD loan, meaning that you don’t have to sell and actualize your capital gains to access the liquidity of your investment portfolio. Not only does a BlockFi loan not count as a taxable event, but the interest paid can often be written off when tax season comes around. Nifty right?

Client Testimonials


As an investor with significant crypto holdings, BlockFi gave me a valuable tool to get capital, at a fair price, without liquidating my crypto holdings. Aside from offering the best price, their approach to secure storage and thoughtful loan to value ratios gave me confidence that they were the right partner to work with for my cryptocurrency needs.


As a long term crypto holder, it’s important to me to be able to leverage my existing capital without selling. Earning monthly interest all in one place has simplified how I use my cryptoassets.


BlockFi makes it fun to be a hodler again.


We have felt strongly that this market needs access to debt beyond fragmented, short term margin trading options in order to reduce volatility, facilitate scale and put the financial infrastructure for this ecosystem on par with other asset classes. We're happy to have BlockFi as part of the Consensys family and see tremendous growth opportunities for their platform.


BlockFi was my first choice when looking to use crypto as collateral for a fiat loan. BlockFi's friendly and professional staff helped make for a very smooth process from start to finish.


It feels great to have my crypto be recognized as a real asset, which can used as collateral. I'm going to be able to immediately pay off a credit card I've been carrying a balance on.
