What is Crypto.com Soft Lockup?

Crypto.com Soft Lockup is another way to earn rewards simply by holding a balance in your Crypto.com Exchange wallet.

Note: The Exchange wallet is different from your App wallet. For free and instant transfer of funds from your App to your Exchange wallet, please follow these steps. How to deposit cryptocurrency to my Crypto.com Exchange wallet (Crypto.com App Wallet Address).

How is this different from locking up CRO?

“CRO Lockup” is different as it requires you to lock up a minimum of 1,000 CRO for 180 days on Crypto.com Exchange. CRO Lock up is rewarded with its own range of benefits: tier-based APR of up to 8%, trading fee benefits (zero maker fees and maker fee rebates from locking up more than 50,000 CRO) & Syndicate access. Locked up CRO can not be withdrawn until the committed 6 months duration is complete.

Crypto.com Soft Lockup rewards Exchange users with available tokens including BTC. It offers more flexibility by rewarding you based on your daily Exchange wallet balances with no commitment period required, while extra rewards apply to those who are actively CRO locking up.

Who can participate in Crypto.com Soft Lockup?

Users of the Exchange can use this feature except for citizens and residents of Hong Kong SAR, Switzerland, and Malta.

What are Exclusive Soft Lockup Rewards?

Exclusive Soft Lockup Rewards are another form of soft locking up, where selected tokens would have:

  • Increased APR

  • Unlimited lockup balance for users (users can gain interest on more than the current limit)

  • No minimum threshold for soft lockup

This is offered to our VIP users and Market Making participants.

How is Crypto.com Soft Lockup calculated?

We will calculate daily rewards according to the snapshots of the currency held by users at 22:00:00 UTC each day.

The snapshot will include your funds under Available and In Order. This means funds that in order due to trade and subscribe to Syndicate sales will also be counted - trade away!

Daily interest will be calculated with the below formula:

Daily Interest = Balance x (APR/365)

When will I receive my daily interest?

It will be distributed to your token’s balance within an hour after 00:00:00 UTC if you have opted in and your balance is greater than or equal to the minimum threshold.

Where can I see my earnings from both CRO Lockup and Soft Lockup?

You can view your daily earnings in the Lockup & Earn section under Earnings History.
