BIA* interest rates are increasing for BTC and ETH for non-US clients.
On Thursday, September 1, 2022, we’re increasing certain tier amounts and interest rates for certain tiers for BTC and ETH in the BIAs* of non-US clients.
We continually set rates based on market dynamics for lending and borrowing. Our goal is to practice sound risk management and maintain earning opportunities for you with our BIA*.
Please note that all tiers and rates are unchanged for U.S. persons with BIAs*. We’re also able to offer compelling rates through BlockFi Private Client for clients globally. If this is something you’re interested in learning more about, please contact us
All tiers and rates displayed on the BlockFi rates page
are current. We’ll make the following adjustments starting Thursday, September 1, 2022:
Bitcoin (BTC) Updates [Non-US Clients]
Ethereum (ETH) Updates [Non-US Clients]
Background on Rate Updates
We set rates for the BIAs* by balancing prudent treasury and risk management principles amid shifting market conditions. Rates on cryptoassets held in BIA* are primarily driven by institutional demand for borrowing assets.
Our Global Head of Trading, Joe Hickey, recently sat down with The Block
to discuss the current rate environment. Due to changes in the competitive landscape, institutional demand to borrow cryptoassets has outpaced supply in the past few months. We’re able to pass along the related increases in our lending revenues directly to retail clients in the form of higher interest rates
These adjustments are part of our ongoing mission to deliver high-quality, long-term service to you while expanding our innovative product offerings in a competitive and scalable way. Since the beginning, we’ve continued rewarding crypto interest yields even as cryptoasset prices have fluctuated. As our track record shows, rates may rise or fall, but BlockFi always remains committed to supporting your financial goals. You can see more details about how assets are managed on our platform here
