June has been an exciting month for us at ZebPay, with two new features now live. We hope you’re enjoying the assured returns from our new Earn and Lend features. Haven’t made a deposit yet? Read on to understand how these features work!
As we continue to expand our offerings, our mission to deliver long-term value still stands. It’s the mission we believe in, and act on. This mission expands beyond just the tokens we list, but goes also to the features we offer with ZebPay.
Let’s look ZebPay Earn
Think of ZebPay Earn as your crypto savings account. Hold your crypto with us, and receive a fixed return at the beginning of every month.
Want to trade your crypto? Or withdraw it into rupees?
Absolutely, you have full control over your holdings, and what you choose to do with them.
Now, say you knew you were planning to hold your money for a fixed amount of time. With fiat money, you could open a fixed deposit with your bank – and collect a solid amount of interest once it matured.
With ZebPay Lending, you can make a fixed crypto-deposit
A lending deposit on ZebPay unlocks the power of passive returns from your crypto. Under a fixed-term deposit, you can lend us your crypto for up to 90-day periods.
These returns are calculated on the volume of your crypto holding. As a result, they can be used to enhance your earnings when the price of a token goes up. Alternatively, they add a safety factor against a price drop by ensuring a certain amount of return.
We’ve illustrated how these numbers look, in case you’re wondering how.
What makes this especially interesting is when you compare the returns on a fiat fixed deposit versus a stablecoin like USDT.
Say you wanted to safely hold an amount of ₹50,000 for 3 months. Let’s consider two options:
Will lock in your amount, and offer an annual return between 3% and 7.5%.
Will also lock in your amount, but it will offer an annual return between 9% and 10%.
Which would you take? Option B is a no-brainer, right?
Option B is the fixed return on creating a USDT deposit with ZebPay. A, on the other hand, is a standard fixed deposit.
ZebPay Earn and Lend are our first steps into a more mature decentralized ecosystem. We want to give our users easy access to the best DeFi has to offer, via a direct fiat on-ramp. Watch this space closely, there’s plenty more to come!
