How is Nexo able to pay interest on my LINK?

Similar to a conventional savings account, Nexo allows you to earn interest on your assets by lending them to retailers, businesses, and institutions.

However, the key difference is that we lend your funds only on an overcollateralized basis. We keep our rates stable over time because of Nexo’s risk policy to never lend without collateral. Your funds are backed no matter how the market moves, practically eliminating risk.

What do I have to do to start earning?

Signing up for a Nexo account takes less than a minute:

  1. Open the Nexo platform or the Nexo app.
  2. Complete your verification.
  3. Buy or transfer at least 4.00 LINK to your account.
  4. You’re all set! You’re now earning daily interest on your digital assets.

Note: You’ll start earning interest the next day after your transfer. Keep in mind that LINK used as collateral for our Instant Crypto Credit LinesTM will not earn interest.

What are the interest rates?

Your interest rate is determined by:

  1. Your Loyalty tier, which in turn depends on the ratio of NEXO Tokens against the balance of other assets in your portfolio. The requirements for each tier are as follows:
    • Base: No NEXO Tokens are needed.
    • Silver: At least 1% of the Portfolio Balance in your account must comprise NEXO Tokens.
    • Gold: At least 5% of the Portfolio Balance in your account must comprise NEXO Tokens.
    • Platinum: At least 10% of the Portfolio Balance in your account must comprise NEXO Tokens.
  2. The type of interest payout you choose:
    • Earning ‘in kind’ means you receive your interest payments in the currency you’re earning on – in this case, LINK.
    • Earning in NEXO means you receive interest payments in NEXO Tokens and benefit from an additional 2% interest on all your holdings.
  3. The type of saving term: FLEX or Fixed. If you choose to create a 1-month Fixed Term on your LINK, you’ll earn an extra 1% interest on your assets.
