Is an 8% Interest Rate Possible?
So what happened?
Recently we have been researching the cryptocurrency market and came across a company called BlockFi. This is a cryptocurrency platform that allows you to buy and store your bitcoin and other well-known cryptocurrencies. You can also store your U.S. dollars there. The interesting thing about it is that the company pays more than 8% per year if you keep your cryptocurrencies on their platform.
The implication is that you can put your money there and easily match the historical return of the S&P 500. Of course, you always run the risk of losing value because cryptocurrencies are quite volatile. Nevertheless, more than 8% interest rate is almost unheard of.
Remember, we are not endorsing BlockFi. This is purely research into the emerging cryptocurrency industry and something to pay attention to and understand.
