There are a few requirements for getting started with an Interest Account in your Wallet:

  • You must be Gold Level verified in your Wallet to have an Interest Account. If you’re not currently Gold Verified, click “Upgrade Now” on the Earn Interest page or head over to the Profile section of your Wallet (under Settings > Profile in the web wallet) to verify your identity.
  • There is a minimum transfer of $300 worth of bitcoin, a $100 minimum for ether, USD Digital, and Tether, and a $1 minimum for bitcoin cash and XLM.
  • You must be verified in a supported country to be eligible. At this time, residents of Canada, Japan, and the states of New York and Washington (USA) are not eligible to earn interest in their Blockchain Wallets. Please see the list below for full United States eligibility. Earning interest on USDT and USD-D is not supported for residents of the United Kingdom.
  • Bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, USD Digital, Tether, and XLM are currently the only cryptocurrencies supported for earning interest in the Wallet. Therefore, you must have at least $300 worth of bitcoin, $100 worth of ETH/USD-D/USDT, or $1 of bitcoin cash or XLM in your wallet to open an Interest Account. We are looking to support more cryptocurrencies in the future, so let us know if you have any specific requests!

Residents of the following US states are eligible to earn interest on all supported currencies: Alaska, California, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming. 
All other states (excluding NY and WA) are eligible to earn interest only on BTC, BCH, ETH, and XLM.
