Unfortunately, no. When your crypto is locked as collateral against your loan, you are not earning interest on it. Instead, what is happening is that, you are paying interest on the dollars that you've borrowed and we have your crypto as collateral, so that is an asset that Celsius is holding on to.
Once you close the loan and we release your collateral, your crypto is unlocked in the app and goes straight back into your wallet. From that moment on, your crypto starts to automatically earn interest.
The reason why we are able to offer such low rates on USD loans and such high interest on transfers is partly due to the fact that we don't pay interest on locked collateral.
As a customer, you can choose to either earn the highest rates on your coins or pay the lowest rates on your loans, but sadly you can't do both.
