Bitstamp has recently announced the launch of a lending service in Europe, Hong Kong, and the United Arab Emirates. There is no set lock-in term for the exchange’s lending product, which provides daily incentives and up to 4.4% APY. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Circle USDC, and Tether USDT are all supported for lending. Moreover, several other altcoins are also supported. Since March, a hand-picked group of consumers has been using the platform in stealth.
Tesseract, a Finnish lending company that also provides a white-label platform, has teamed with Bitstamp. Stablecoin loans on the Tesseract platform need full collateralization from borrowers. Apart from Tesseract’s other partners, the partnership employs a distinct legal organization to hold client loans and assets.
