Celsius partners with Tether to offer USDT with annual yield of 10.53%

Simultaneously, the use of stablecoins reduces the cost of capital, allowing Celsius to offer loans at a lower interest rate.

Celsius Network, a top cryptocurrency platform, has reportedly announced that it has partnered with Tether, a stablecoin tied to the value of the dollar. The Celsius app is now compatible with USDT ERC20 Stablecoin, which enables USDT holders to win rewards and borrow in a much less volatile currency than other crypto currencies.

Apparently, in addition to the current Stablecoins and Fiat loan options, Celsius users can now apply for loans in USDT at an interest rate of only 4.95% per annum. The company presently provides interest income of 8.1% pa on USDT deposits and 10.53% pa ??on payment in CEL tokens. Simultaneously, the use of stablecoins reduces the cost of capital, allowing Celsius to offer loans at a lower interest rate.

Last year, Celsius reached important milestones in the decentralization of the traditional financial system. Since July 2018, the company granted loans of total value of over $2.2 billion. It also observed customer deposits and collateral from managed loans in excess of $350 million. Also, Celsius has done interest distribution of more than $3.5 million.

Alex Mashinsky, CEO, Celsius Network, Celsius, reportedly stated that the company has been working on a broad adoption of cryptocurrencies by paying ten times the credit rates of traditional banks and lending at interest rates not available to any bank or crypto lender. With stablecoins like USDT, cryptocurrency owners can manage their money in crypto, enabling smooth deals and avoiding the lows and highs of the market. The company will also continue to share profits in the future, even if others only socialize losses, he further added.

For the record, Celsius Network serves the financial needs of today's consumers worldwide through a platform of high interest rates and low-cost loans accessible through a mobile app. The modern Celsius platform offers access to curated financial services which are not available through traditional financial institutions.
