Share

Cred, the leading provider of crypto borrowing and lending with over $300 million in credit facilities, today announced Uphold customers will be earning higher rates on a variety of digital assets. In addition to increases in USD and Euros, Uphold customers can now earn up to 5% on their Gold holdings and 8% on their Ethereum holdings.

“Most of us have been conditioned to believe that one or two percent should be the norm, and ten percent is too good to be true. The reality is that most financial institutions incur significant legacy costs -- branches, ATMs, expensive payment infrastructure and outdated technology, and pass that on to their customers through lower yield rates and higher loan costs,” said Dan Schatt, Co-founder and President of Cred. “As a licensed lender with comprehensive insurance, Cred’s product leverages crypto payment rails and the latest technology practices to give more back to customers.”

Cred customers can commit to a six-month term with the ability to rollover assets for additional three month periods. No account minimum is needed and interest is paid in U.S. Dollars or Stablecoin every three months on Uphold. The principal is paid back in the fiat or crypto amounts that were initially received.

“At Uphold, we are working with best of class partners to build an ecosystem that will revolutionize the personal finance industry for consumers globally. Our community is very vocal about their desire to Hodl and very happy with Cred’s ability to offer significant earnings on digital assets we support like USD, Euros, Gold, GBP, BTC, BCH or ETH,” said JP Thieriot, co-founder and CEO of Uphold.

Cred is backed by some of the largest investors in crypto and tech including 500 Startups, Arrington XRP Capital, Blocktower, FBG Capital, and Binance Labs. Cred is also a founding member of the Universal Protocol Alliance, a board member of the Blockchain Advocacy Coalition and has a joint business relationship with PwC.
