January has been a great start to 2020. We started the year by adding support for USDC and Litecoin, receiving Money Transmitter Licenses (MTLs) in Alabama and New Hampshire, and more.
To provide further accessibility to our clients, we’ve decided to extend our one free withdrawal per month policy. Clients will now receive one free stablecoin withdrawal in addition to one free crypto withdrawal per month. This is in line with our vision to bring our clients the best prices in the market.
Clients will be receiving their BlockFi Interest Account (BIA) interest payment on the first business day of this coming month (February 3, 2020).
Litecoin and USDC Support Added
We’re happy to announce support for USD Coin (USDC) and Litecoin (LTC) across our product portfolio, allowing our global user base of individual and institutional investors to trade and earn interest at industry-leading rates as high as 8.6% APY. Additionally, we’ve partnered with the Litecoin Foundation to ensure that the most value is being delivered to our clients using Litecoin. You can learn more and start trading here.
Alabama and New Hampshire MTLs
This month we received Money Transmitter Licenses (MTLs) in Alabama and New Hampshire. Residents of Alabama and New Hampshire can now create BlockFi Interest Accounts and use Trading.
Starting February 1st, 2020, we are implementing rate changes. The rate changes will impact clients of all sizes. Our rates remain the highest in the industry and we’re the only retail-focused interest earning platform that is U.S. domiciled and regulated, institutionally backed, and that does not have a utility token. You can read more about the adjustments here.

No Origination Fees on Loans
For a limited time, we’re offering crypto-backed USD loans with no origination fees for new and existing clients that originate a new loan of $5,000 or more. This means you can get cash without having to sell your crypto. Until maturity, clients are only responsible for monthly interest payments, nothing else. It’s simple, easy, and has never been more cost effective to get a USD loan with your crypto.
On top of no origination fees, we have lowered our already industry leading rates for a limited time to the following:
50% LTV – 9.75% APR
35% LTV – 7.9% APR
20% LTV – 4.5% APR
This offer ends 2/14/20 23:59:59 UTC. View full terms here.
