LimitationsThe interest program has a min and max aggregated amount. Before min amount is reached, program (interest earning) doesn't start. When max amount already reached, no participation in the program is possible (no interest is earned). You have to wait then for the next program start (1st and 15th every month).
The earned interest for the 6 months period is calculated based on the USD value of the deposited crypto at program start. For that reason you don't earn interest for any deposit value appreciation.
