Earn Bitcoin & Altcoin Interest on these Platforms


High APR Interest on Bitcoin and Stablecoins

Sometimes just hodling your stablecoins and bitcoins in your wallet is not best course of action, for this reason you might want to look into platforms and exchanges that offer opportunity to get high APR interest on bitcoin and many other altcoins that these places offer in exchange literally nothing. Some of these listed site are about lending, some just lock and some are just there openly in your wallet which you can withdraw at any point – of course there is difference on how often the interest is paid (Weekly, Daily or Monthly for example). If you are looking for dividend based tokens and coins please check out earlier article i wrote as well.
