Earn Interest from Margin Trading Exchanges - Deepstash

Earn Interest from Margin Trading Exchanges

Many exchange providers offer something called ‘leveraged trading’. This is when a trader seeks to increase their potential profit (or loss) by borrowing additional coins. Using a leverage of 10:1, for example, a trader would gain or lose 10% for every 1% change in the market. The exchange provider will keep the trader’s own coins as collateral for this loan, and automatically close the position when they get close to depleting their balance.

MORE IDEAS FROM 5 Ways To Earn Interest On Bitcoin & Altcoins

This is a popular altcoin exchange which offers leveraged trading and has a peer-to-peer market for users who want to provide liquidity to margin traders and earn daily interest as a result. You can set your own interest rate and loan duration, and because these are short term loans with daily interest you get excellent compounding of interest over the longer term. To get the best rate you need to play an active role in managing your account, but if you don’t want to be logged in all day monitoring rates and tweaking your offers you can use their API to connect to a bot.

Bitcoin offers its users many advantages over fiat money and the traditional banking system (see: Why Buy Bitcoin? ). But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t also parts of the legacy banking system which you might miss when you make the switch to BTC. Anybody old enough to have had a bank account prior to the 2008 financial crisis might have fond memories of something called ‘interest’ for example…

Another way to earn interest on your bitcoins is to lend them out through peer-to-peer crowdlending websites. There are a few different sites that enable this but lease bear in mind that there is more risk to this than other options, which is why I’ve included this as a bonus rather than a full list item, but you can also get some great rates to compensate for this. My recommendation is to use BTCJam as they are one of the most well established services, have a good credit scoring system, and also offer additional features for investors like an ‘auto-invest’ function with different risk

this bitcoin savings account pays an initial 2.18% AER until 2016, followed by a variable interest rate tied to the profits generated by leveraged margin trading at BTC.SX. With a 100% reserve guarantee which is independently verifiable via the blockchain, and multi-sig security on all accounts, I would say that the risks associated with this savings account are not significantly higher than keeping coins in your own wallet. It is also quick and easy to set up and requires no maintenance – just like a regular savings account you just make a deposit and leave it there to grow.

BitBays is an exchange website which pays a small promotional interest rate on all balances held on their site, but if you want to earn a little bit more than that you can also put your funds in an arbitrage fund that they run, which at the time of writing offers a variable rate around 10-12% APR and the option to invest using either BTC or USD.

FreeBitco.in  is one of the longest running services in cryptocurrency.

It started life as a simple ‘faucet’ service, where users could claim free coins every hour and save up enough to withdraw as a way to learn about crypto without putting any money on the line. This faucet is still running, but since then they have expanded to include a lottery, Hi / Low provably fair betting, mining, and a savings account currently paying over 4% interest, distributed daily and with compounding, to everyone with a BTC balance on the site.

Bter – This exchange offers daily variable interest on deposits of bitcoin and a wide range of altcoins . If you opt-in you can also get a better rate on your BTC by allowing your coins to be used by Chinese mining company JUA to fund their operations. I feel I should make note of the fact that Bter has been hacked more than once in the past leading to the loss of customer funds.

As one of the top Bitcoin exchanges, Bitfinex has a sizeable market for peer-to-peer margin trading loans which works in a very similar way to Poloniex. In addition to lending BTC, you can also earn a much higher interest rate on USD than you would get from any bank savings account!

What is Bitcoin (BTC)?

Bitcoin is a decentralized cryptocurrency originally described in a 2008 whitepaper by a person, or group of people, using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. It was launched in January 2009.

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer online currency, meaning that all transactions happen directly between equal, independent network participants, without the need for any intermediary to permit or facilitate them. Bitcoin was created to allow “online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.”

Bitcoin was born from a crisis

In the middle of the 2008 banking crisis, a group of anarchists, libertarians, and other tech-savvy true believers created digital cash.

In August 2008, bitcoin dot org was registered as a domain. On Halloween the same year, Satoshi Nakamoto put up a whitepaper describing a decentralised system of electronic transactions that did not involve a financial institution.
