What is Filecoin Lending on CoinList?

Filecoin lending on CoinList is a way for you to put your FIL to work by simply lending your FIL to CoinList. The Filecoin ecosystem is very young and many network participants are in need of FIL to supplement their working capital. 


We are currently running the fourth FIL Lending Program through CoinList. Participants have two options to lend their FIL: 


1. A 90-day loan with no early termination. Participants will earn a fixed 20% APY for 90 days – a net 4.93% return. 


2. A 180-day loan with early termination after 90 days at CoinList's discretion based on borrower demand. Participants will earn 20% APY for 90 to 180 days depending on the final term length – a net return between 4.93% and 9.86%. 


Once we have received loans from lenders, we will reach out to our network of Filecoin storage miners and liquidity providers to issue loans. 


All loans issued are 125% collateralized. Borrowers are only able to supply collateral with large market cap, liquid cryptoassets such as BTC, ETH, and supported stablecoins. 


All participants, lenders and borrowers, must be accredited. 


The fourth lending period opens up on December 2 and users will be able to loan FIL until December 11. 


Participants who lend their FIL for three months will receive their principal + accumulated interest denominated in FIL back into their CoinList wallets by March 22. 


Participants who lend their FIL for up to six months will receive their principal + accumulated interest denominated in FIL back into their CoinList wallets by June 11. In the case of early termination, we will notify participants via email and return their principal + accumulated interest denominated in FIL back into their CoinList wallets within 7 days of termination. 


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 contact justin@coinlist.co if you have additional questions. 


How much will I earn by participating?

In the fourth FIL Lending Program, participants will have two options to lend their FIL: 


Option 1: 90 day loan with no early termination

  • Participants will earn a fixed 20% APY on the principal FIL lent to CoinList for 90 days, resulting in a fixed net 4.93% return.

Option 2: 180 day loan with early termination after 90 days at CoinList's discretion based on borrowing demand

  • Participants will earn a fixed 20% APY on the principal FIL lent to CoinList for 90 to 180 days, resulting in a net return between 4.93% and 9.86% return.
