Celsius Network, the industry-leading cryptocurrency platform, announces that its members will be able to earn weekly compounded interest on CEL tokens at a rate of 3% per annum.
US-based customers will be automatically enrolled in weekly compounding interest on CEL tokens while Celsius users located outside the US have the option to earn interest on CEL tokens or continue to take advantage of Celsius’s current international offering – earning up to 30% more interest income on non-CEL deposits paid out weekly in CEL tokens.
Interest on CEL tokens is funded by Celsius’s token treasury. Celsius issues dollar loans by converting CEL into USD and generates revenue through loan interest payments. As with all other coins supported on the platform, Celsius distributes up to 80% of this income back to its community of CEL depositors.
“Our community comes first,” said Alex Mashinksy, CEO and founder of Celsius Network, “We want to make sure that everyone using Celsius is getting the full suite of benefits possible, but we also have to make sure that we are doing it in the right way. Our recent pause and reintroduction of the CEL token to US users shows our dedication to the community, and making sure they have a seamless experience…and hopefully a profitable one!”
