Coinbase Now Offers Interest for Holding USD Coin (USDC)
— Coinbase (@coinbase) October 2, 2019
According to the announcement, the new program enables monthly passive income without having to lend out your holdings. All earnings are accrued daily and investors can easily move their USDC out of the wallet without any lockup period.
The Coinbase team added, “Eligible customers will begin earning rewards on any USD Coins they currently hold on Coinbase, with rewards being distributed on a monthly basis.”
This news comes the same week that Coinbase joined forces with other leaders in the crypto industry to form Crypto Rating Council, a member-operated organization formed to help market participants that trade or support digital assets comply with U.S. federal securities laws.
