Beginners Guide To Gemini Earn
Gemini Earn is a lending program through which you may choose to lend your crypto to certain institutional borrowers and earn interest on your crypto.
Gemini is partnering with accredited third party borrowers including Genesis, who are vetted through a risk management framework which reviews our partners’ collateralization management process.
On the Gemini platform, customers can view their combined trading balance and Earn balance, as well as the interest they’ve earned. Interest is paid daily and will start accruing at 4 p.m. ET on the next business day after funds are moved to Gemini Earn.
What is APY?
APY is short for “Annual Percentage Yield” and indicates the interest you can earn on your principal over one year.
