Bitfinex is pleased to announce support for BitcoinInterest (BCI), a proof-of-stake Bitcoin fork. Deposits for BCI have opened today, with trading set to be introduced as more deposits flow in.
BitcoinInterest is a fork of Bitcoin allowing holders to stake their tokens to earn interest payments, without the underlying risk associated with trading. It has no fixed interest rates and users are rewarded in proportion to overall network staking activity.
BCI tokens were airdropped to BTC holders on Block 505083 (January 22nd, 2018) and will be credited to Bitfinex holders towards the end of May, 2018.
