Other Fil Lending Questions

What assets can I use to participate?

To participate, you must lend FIL to CoinList to participate. If you do not have FIL and would like to participate, you can purchase FIL on CoinList or CoinList Pro with USD, USDT, USDC, BTC, and/or ETH. 

Can I participate with unvested FIL?

You are only able to participate with vested FIL in the lending program. If you have additional FIL that is set to vest before the deadline,you may submit more loans as more FIL becomes vested.  Please visit our Help Center if you have additional questions. 

Who is eligible to participate?

All users from CoinList's supported jurisdictions, except residents of Belarus and Venezuela.

Users from certain unsupported jurisdictions can still participate but it requires a manual process to execute the loan. For that reason, we require external FIL lenders to lend a minimum of $50k worth of FIL. 

If you're in an unsupported jurisdiction and would like to participate, please email
