1. Fund your Account
Fund your account at one of our On-Ramp Providers via ACH or wire transfer. We currently support Coinbase and Coinbase Pro.
2. Issue Digital Assets
Funds are moved into a trust account with Circle Internet Financial. Circle issues USDC digital tokens to represent the value of your money at a 1-to-1 rate ($1 = 1 USDC Token).
3. Send to Earning Provider
Tokens are sent to a trusted Earning Provider where they are held by BitGo Trust Company, a public Trust Company regulated by the South Dakota Division of Banking.
4. Earn Interest
On a weekly basis, interest is paid out in USDC tokens. For example, if you have $10,000 on deposit, and the interest rate is 6.50%, you will receive 12.50 USDC tokens every week.
5. Withdraw Interest
We help you convert USDC tokens to US dollars and withdraw interest back to your bank account. Alternatively, keep the interest on deposit and enjoy the power of compounding.
6. Sit back and Relax
Watch your account grow every week!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Who holds my money?
Funds are held in escrow with our Earning Provider in the form of digital assets. The BitGo Trust Company, a public Trust Company regulated by the South Dakota Division of Banking, maintains custody of the assets.
What happens to my money?
Your money is lent out as part of a secured loan against digital assets and other cryptocurrencies. These loans are over-collateralized. For example, for every $200 - $500 worth of digital assets, the borrower can only borrow $100 cash.
Does Wayrate hold my money?
Wayrate does not take custody of your funds at any point. Wayrate is a technology platform to help you navigate the complexities of securitized digital asset lending.
What happens if the value of the collateral drops?
If the value of the collateral drops too low, the collateral will be sold to prevent a loss on the loan. Also, you are able to withdraw your money at any time.
How often can I withdraw?
Your interest is withdrawn automatically, unless you chose to leave it in the account. Your principal can be withdrawn at any time (allowing time for ACH processing).
How am I able to earn such an attractive interest rate?
The interest rates on secured loans are in line with what the banks charge. While the banks typically keep all the profits, our Earning Providers send most of the interest back to you.
Wayrate lets your money work for you, not for the banks.
