Changes to Celsius Reward Rates

Celsius updates their reward rates weekly based on their previous weeks’ revenue per crypto asset. Reward rates are published every Monday with rates valid the previous Friday for a week.

Since the crypto space changes very quickly, especially in CeFi / DeFi, yields on crypto deposits vary widely and are subject to change at anytime. Although Celsius doesn’t change their reward rates often, they must do so sometimes in order to provide ‘sustainable‘ rates over the long haul. Here are the Celsius reward rate changes over the past 6 months. We thought that any changes to Celsius reward rates beyond 6 months is irrelevant. Also, please note that all In-CEL APY rates are for Platinum Loyalty users.
