I suspect you did not understand my point.
Let me try differently: THEY USE OUR MONEY TO TRADE FOR FREE!

You seem to missunderstand the whole situation.

1) Once you deposit to an exchange, it is no longer your money. It belongs to them. All you get is the 'right' to withdraw them (which might get refused if they get hacked, etc..)
2) They are not trading with your money. They are 'grouping' all of their small deposits from individuals to a few addresses containing the whole balance. It makes it way easier for them to manage it this way.

If you want to hold your money (thats what it is about crypto), then withdraw your coins and store them on an address where (only) YOU have the control over the funds.
On an exchange, it is NOT your money.

Today I wanted to check my ETH amount in an exchange.
However, due to laziness to enter all the passwords and 2FA etc,
 I decided to just check my exchange ETH address via ETH explorer.
I copied it and pasted in in an explorer and what I saw amazed me:
Balance:   0.00013284416 Ether
There should be atleast 2 ETH!
I checked the transactions below and saw that RIGHT after an incomming transaction happens,
 another outgoing transaction empties my exchange wallet!
I logged in right away to the exchange and the coins were there!
Does anyone know, how come exchanges use our money for their own things
but they don't pay us interest? Or is there an exchange, which pays interest?


You don't have a wallet at an exchange, you have an account. That address is a deposit address in the exchange's wallet. It works just like a bank. Your money is combined with everyone else's money.

This, it is unlikely the exchange is using your money, they have enough money themselves to do whatever they want, what it happens is that your money is pooled with the money of everyone else in cold storage with only a small amount in a hot wallet to allow instant withdrawals, this is why many exchanges do not allow you to sign an address and even if you could, it will be useless for most purposes.

I have seen a number of exchanges who began from selling their token on an ICO. That token is supposed to be a unit that entitles its owner for dividends. Blockbid is one of such exchanges and they are currently preparing for launching a beta.

The reason you did not see your coin  completely the initial time you check was because you did not log in properly. Make sure you log in properly next time so that you will not accuse any exchanger wrongly.

There are no exchanges that pay interest for your cryptocurrency in today's market conditions and i don't think they need to pay as they are not similar to the banking services where people get interest on the annual or monthly basis. I think if there is anything serious about interest rates then you can expect the interest charge to be levied in upcoming months.


Well the money i have in a bank are on a termless deposit.
They are there for unlimited amount of time.
Yes, the interest is the smallest one compared to 6 months or 1 year term deposit.
But there is still an interest.

I'm not a financial guru, but I know that banks use
it's customer's money to do all type of investments,
loans and trading from which the bank is making a profit.

To pay you for giving them this opportunity,
they pay you an interest.

If we accept that crypto stored in an exchange for unlimited term,
then it is very logical that you should receive some % of
the exchange's profit. You are basicly funding the exchange.

Yes, banks charge you for keeping you account alive, which exchanges don't.
However banks have physical offices, a website, ATMs, they issue cards, they pay taxes
they have 24/7 support and they insure your money.
 And still they pay you interest.


Exchanges have just a single website with a support and no interest.

Hey, maybe it's an idea for a new era crypto exchange Wink

If someone likes my idea, I'll be happy to share the rest
of my toughts on this.



It is you who are invested already. Why do they need to pay you anything else. Besides, you are going to a wrong idea here.
You should not keep those coins with them. That is the basic rule of one investor or a holder. Keep it in a cold wallet if you are going to leave it for a long time.

You get something with the fluctuation of the coin and it is the same with them.
They get just a little amount for those who will trade and it could be just the altcoin you are trading which you will pay for.
They will hold it too in case of a bull.

Both are at risk, so why should I pay you if I am the exchange. I will run out of money if I do that.

I guess you had enough answers with your thoughts and misunderstanding on how your funds are being transferred to the pool fund of the exchange. And that's not how exchanges are working like the banks, no interest if they will offer that type of service then they will be a lending center just like what some exchanges offer before.

I also agree with your statement, there are many exchanges that use investors' money to invest in their own purposes and when they are discovered, the exchange loses investor confidence and ability. it's closing is very big. So the Exchange will store most of the investor's coins in the cold wallet for safekeeping as possible.

Well,it is a fair deal if actually they trade or invest your tokens ( which i have doubts they do), because they also spend resources in keeping your tokens safe  or providing you with wallet service.

Exchanges are not banks so they don't lend your money to the public. Since they are not using your money for their own business, why would they pay you interest. Also once you keep your money into an exchange for a longer time (the time varies with different exchanges), they send the fund to their cold storage to keep it safe and away from hackers. That is the reason why you can't see it through ethplorer or blockchain ledger. But when you login, you can see the full amount and you can use that right away. Nothing to worry about it as it is a common practice among the exchanges just to keep your funds safe.

bitfinex gives you negative interest if you hold your crypto long enough Smiley they are not banks, they are exchanges , does nasdaq gives you interest for your assets ? dont know but dont think so, crypto is like commodity but moves like assets. Exchanges stores your coins with a high risk of being hack, and they dont have certain incomes like a classic bank so do not expect them to give interest like them, in future they may have some surprise features similar to interest but only competition will show it to us.

The way to earn money on cryptocurrency exchanges is to make money through transaction fees!
They don't like banks can lend to investors!
So they don't have extra money to pay interest to investors in cryptocurrencies!

as fellow members told you exchanges aren't banks .banks have a big and experienced team that handle investments of customers in a way that can make good returns . in the other hand , most exchanges are run by inexperienced people (IMO) who can't risk their customer's money into any sort of investment and give them an interest.

LOL that’s why they tell you that cryptocurrency is not bank. You don’t expect what you’re seeing in bank to be the same thing you will be seeing in cryptocurrency exchanges and the rest of them.

If you want where you will be getting interest on your money then you will have to move it to bank and by the end of the month you will be getting interest. But I don’t really value those interest cause they don’t make sense, not much, unless it will be different in your country.

Why normal banks PAY interest when they use your money,
but crypto exchanges don't?
Exchanges do not use your money like the way you are saying about interest on cryptocurrency. The cryptocurrency is your currency to keep in your wallet and they do not use it may be it is the price increase or decrease which made changes in your wallet amount. Besides this cryptocurrency keeps you away from interests and high fees on transactions as we deal with banks they charge us with higher fee.

This is exchange you could not find interest in here. If you want to earn interest put it to a bank crypto where in they give interest to every storage of your coin in their platform. One site I know that offers interest is freebitco. I also participated in a campaign called tokenunion they also offer interest on your deposit.

Exchanges are not banks. They dont hold fiat to run loans and investments. Instead they do distribute dividends of the crypto they offer that like NEO and airdrops. Also if you hold the exchanges token like binance's it has value like a stock since they burn a percentage of it and raises in time.

Why would they pay you interest?youre the one whos using their sites and youre the one who has the option to choose. What exchangers to use so its your own prerogative

And besides you will use their platform to gain profit for trading,becuse if not then just use wallets and leave the exchangers

There is no interest, of course, and they do not have a bank or savings account. Their game, they have the right to decide any matter, even if it is a lie. It is best to consider before investing in a safe and well-developed investment fund. Sustainability is not afraid of losing.
