How Do I Use Paxful Earn?

Make your money work for you. With Paxful Earn, you can gain weekly interest from the cryptocurrency stored in your Paxful Wallet.
What is Paxful Earn

Paxful’s Earn feature is an exciting and simple way to gain more from the cryptocurrency you store in your wallet. With Earn, you can add crypto to your Earn Wallet, and in return, you’ll receive interest every week. 

You can also use the built-in interest calculator to see how much you’ll earn with every cryptocurrency deposit you make. The interest you accrue on Earn will automatically be added to your wallet every Tuesday, and you’ll receive a notification once the interest has been added to your account.

Keep in mind that our interest rates may change from week to week. You can find the current interest rate in the Deposit section of your Earn Wallet.
