  • Keep the Upside - We return the same number of coins plus interest, so any upside in the value of your coins is yours to keep.

Here's how we calculate the interest you earn

We want to maximize returns for HODLers and do what's in the best interest of all our members. Our formula for CEL interest will be based on 3 factors which reward HODLing and discourage speculation:

50% – Balances

Your Portfolio Balance

The amount of Coins (BTC, ETH, XRP etc.) you’ve deposited

25% – Time

Are you an OG?

The amount of time you’ve been part of the Celsius community vs. others without withdrawing your coins.

25% – HODL

This CEL was made for HODLing

The amount of CEL tokens you HODL out of the CEL tokens you earned in interest*.

*Only earned tokens count. Tokens bought during the ICO or the open market do not count towards this milestone.

Right now, we’re paying interest in-kind every Monday. So, if you deposit ETH, you’ll earn interest in ETH. Deposit BTC, get BTC. Next year, we’ll start distributing CEL tokens to members outside the USA.


Can I get my coins back whenever I want?

Yes, you can! Interest is calculated daily and distributed weekly. Your coins are yours to deposit and withdraw whenever you see fit.

Is the interest rate always the same?

Nope. The interest rate varies based on demand, you’ll always be able to see our current rates within the app.

In what currency is interest paid?

Interest earned will be paid in the respective currency (BTC, ETH, etc.) Your interest will be calculated daily and deposited weekly (on Mondays) into your account.

What percentage return can I expect on my deposits?

We aim to provide our crypto coin lenders with rates of somewhere between 3-9%, depending on the demand for the deposited coin. This number is determined by total supply and demand and what’s best for the community.

Where do my coins actually go?

We deposit your coins/tokens with trusted custodians like BitGo as well as major exchanges. If your coins are being borrowed, the borrower must provide full cover with cash collateral secured in an FDIC insured account.

How is storing with Celsius safer than storing in cold storage?

We diversify the assets across multiple platforms, such as cold storage (BitGo), institutional exchanges, and short orders, in which case we have 120-150% of the dollar value in an FDIC-insured bank account.

How and where are the coins traded?

The coins will be deployed in a number of ways, the most common being used in margin lending and shorting. We use the interest and fees borrowers and shorters pay us to pay you interest.

How are my coins secured?

They are held in encrypted accounts and once deployed (lent out), they are backed by cash collateral to ensure the lender is always protected.

Who is your (cold storage) custodian?

BitGo and other top custodians.

Do you use my coins as working capital?

No, none of the cryptocurrency we hold from our members is used as working capital for the company.
