# How to Calculate Weekly Rewards

##### The calculation of weekly reward interest is a source of confusion for many Celsius users. We’re here to help!

Celsius posts weekly reward rates in Average Percentage Yield (APY). They use weekly compounding in their calculation as reward interest is paid out weekly and therefore compounded weekly.

However, when you’re taking a ‘snapshot’ of your weekly earnings, you can’t use APY. Instead, Celsius users must use the Average Percentage Rate (APR) in order to calculate their exact weekly rewards.

##### Calculating your Celsius in-kind weekly rewards:

Assuming that you’ve held your crypto assets in your wallet during the entire ‘Reward Accrual Period‘, here are the steps for calculating your weekly reward interest in-kind:

1. Find your starting balance for an individual crypto asset
2. Determine the weekly reward rate in APR (not posted APY)
3. Use this calculation:
In-Kind Reward Interest = (Starting Balance * APR Rate) / 52 weeks

For example: if you have 100 MATIC earning in-kind at 10.00% APR, the calculation is 100 * 10.00% / 52 weeks = 0.1923076923076923 MATIC. The reward interest gets added to your original balance for the following weeks’ calculation (100 + 0.1923076923076923 MATIC).
