Yes they paid. If you deposit 1BTC last month, let say for a full month from March 1st to April 1st, you are paid 6.2% APR. Meaning for March earning of 0.0051666666666667% for your 1BTC you would have earned 0.0051666666666667BTC which value today at $25. If you have 2BTC balance deposit, you would have earned 0.0103333333333333BTC value at $50, but again they paid via the Cryptos that you have deposited, in this case it’s BTC. If you do Ethereum they pay via Ethereum and so on.
Yes you can withdraw it, anytime. However if you withdraw your original deposit, it will impact your earning, I believe it has to be in the balance for the complete month. So imagine if you have 25BTC, you will be earning 0.1291666666666667BTC value at $632, again they paid via Cryptos, you can sell to USD at coinbase, gemini, and so on but there will be some fees, probably 5-10% so your $632 probably become $600 minus capital gain tax = $500 pocket take home amount.
For me I just invested 1BTC to test it out, and I’m compounding it. This is a risk I could loose my 1BTC and the profit I made monthly could be gone as well if something were to happen with blockfi, as blockfi.com have indicated if they got hacked or system problem loss all their coins, then they will not be obligated to pay you back anything, just want to make that clear, it’s the risk you need to know. However this is probably one of the safest lending platform versus ponzi ones out there that gave you 6.2% Monthly not yearly.

We paid out 23.2 BTC and 405.3 ETH in crypto interest this month!
Clients of the BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) have now received their first monthly interest payment. Since last month’s launch, we’ve seen overwhelming demand from people wanting to earn interest on crypto. At the end of March, BlockFi paid out the equivalent of 23.2 BTC and 405.3 ETH in interest to BIA clients. We couldn’t be more excited about this.
Yesterday BlockFi clients received their first email statement from our team, which included their total deposit amounts, the amount of interest they earned, and whether they’ve earned any referral bonuses. BIA clients can also login to the BIA dashboard to view their update balance, account transaction history, and their unique wallet addresses for storing more crypto at BlockFi to earn interest on.
If you deposited 1 BTC at the beginning of the month, you just earned 0.005 BTC for the month of March. Your new balance of 1.005 BTC will earn interest in April and interest will continue to compound monthly.. Curious how compound interest will help you grow your overall holdings in the future? Our resource center covers how earning crypto interest with BIA works. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to our team at [email protected]. We love hearing from you.
