With the rise in popularity of cryptocurrencies, the area of services is also expanding. From crypto wallets to crypto fixed deposits, we have it all. Yes, that’s right, crypto FDs are a thing now!
One of the oldest homegrown cryptocurrency platforms, Zebpay has launched a first-of-its-kind crypto lending model in India that allows people to earn interest on their crypto holdings.
And we’re here to talk all about it and more! Let’s get started!

An Introduction to ZebPay Fixed Deposits
In a traditional fixed deposit, a lump sum amount is given to the bank for a fixed tenure at an agreed rate of interest. At the end of the tenure, the user receives the amount you have invested plus compound interest.
However, when someone deposits cryptocurrency, they are not transferring the money. They are transferring ownership and access to their crypto.
Zebpay has launched a first-of-its-kind crypto lending model that allows people to earn interest on their crypto holdings. The lending facility works more like the regular fixed deposits and will be available in two options — open term and fixed term. The fixed-term allows investors to park their cryptos in a deposit for up to a 90-day period.
Depending on the term of deposit, users will be able to generate returns of up to 3% on their Bitcoin, up to 7% on Ethereum and Dai, and up to 12% on Tether.
How does Zebpay work?
“Paisa hi paise ko khichta hai? Ab se, crypto bhi crypto ko kheechega!”
That’s the motto Zebpay is working on!
The two ways we talked about in which users can invest — open term and fixed term. Let’s discuss this in detail!
Zebpay Open Term
- Under an open-term deposit, you will be paid a return as applicable for the day.
- These returns will be deposited into your trading wallet daily.
- You can return your crypto back to your trading wallet at any time. The amount you deposit will be returned immediately.
- As a day trader, you can take the advantage of an open-term deposit to earn additional returns without locking in your crypto.
Zebpay Fixed Term
- Under the fixed term deposit, you can lend your crypto for 7-day, 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day periods.
- The rate of return will vary depending on the period you opt for.
- The returns earned, along with the principal amount will be deposited into your trading wallet at the end of the term.
- You can withdraw these coins at any time before expiry. However, a penalty will be levied on the returns.
Now that we’re aware of the basics of crypto FDs and ZebPay, let’s see another platform that has recently launched crypto fixed deposits!
