i) By selecting ‘Earn Interest’ in Settings, we will generate weekly interests for your bitcoin (or Ethereum) held in the Online Wallet. APR is the annualised rate. Example 5%
Every week the online wallet will receive X extra BTC = Online Wallet balance BTC * 0.05 * 7 /360
The annual percentage yield (APY) is the effective rate of return on an investment for one year considering the effect of compounding interest. So if the APR is 5%, the APY will be 5.18%.

This yield is generating via the BitcoinPoint treasury.
The rate can be changed at any time and reduced to zero. Earned interests won’t be cancelled unless the account is blocked.
