Covered Gain: Earning Passive Yield and Sell More at Your Target Price

Covered Gain is a dual investment product that lets you earn high interest income before you successfully sell crypto at your target price. The APY for Covered Gain can range from 10% to even around 300% depends on the target price and settlement date.

What is the best time to use Covered Gain?

If you have a strong belief about what price BTC will grow to and that there will be a downward movement in price sooner or later after the increase, it is a good strategy to subscribe to our Covered Gain product to sell BTC at your target sell price and earn passive income simultaneously. You can treat passive income as a bonus along with your trade.

How does Covered Gain work?

Suppose you would like to sell 1 BTC at 22,000 USDT, but the current price of BTC is 20,000 USDT. In this case, you can subscribe to our Covered Gain product at the target sell price of 22,000 USDT to earn some interest before the price reaches your target. Assume you subscribed to Covered Gain with a target sell price of 22,000 USDT, duration of 1 day, APY of 30%, and return at the settlement of 0.6%.

You would expect the following payoff at settlement:

Scenario 1: Price of BTC < 22,000 USDT, you get (1+0.6%) in BTC
Scenario 2: Price of BTC ≥ 22,000 USDT, you get (1+0.6%)*22000 = 22132 in USDT

In other words, if the market price stays below the target price, you’ll earn interest in crypto at settlement. And if the market price rises above or at the target price, you’ll sell cryptos and interest earned at the strike price.

Note: APYs and returns are different with various settlement dates and strike prices, and we will provide you with different combinations for you to choose

Benefits and Risk

Benefits: Before reaching your target sell price, you will keep earning high interest in crypto and sell more crypto once exercised.

Risk: It is possible that the price will keep going up after you successfully sell crypto. Please keep that in mind. It is also possible that the price of crypto at settlement is higher than your target sell price, in which case you will end up selling BTC at a lower price. It means you can lose some potential returns.


Q: What is the best time to use Covered Gain?
A: When you are holding some crypto spots waiting to earn some yield, and you are fine with selling crypto at your expected price, you can use Covered Gain. For example, you think the price of BTC may rise to $65,000, and if the price suddenly rises above $65,000, you are still fine with selling BTC at $65,000. In this case, you can subscribe to Covered Gain with a Target Sell Price of $65,000 with your expected settlement date. Then at settlement, if the current price is below $65,000, you will earn more BTC at the displayed yield. If the current price is above or at $65,000, your investment + yield in BTC will all be sold at $65,000 and go into your account.

Q: What would happen if I subscribed to a Covered Gain to sell BTC with a Target Sell Price of $65,000, but the price suddenly rises to $70,000 at settlement?
A: You will sell BTC at $65,000 and earn yield in USD simultaneously.

Q: Are there any risks associated with Covered Gain?
A: The risk of Covered Gain is the fundamental risk of investment. When your Covered Gain subscription gets exercised and sold crypto at your target sell price, you may not realize some of your investment gains if the market price keeps rising. This risk is similar to rising crypto prices after selling your crypto. At the settlement time of Covered Gain, if the current price is far from the target sell price, you will also need to take the risk of the price difference. For example, you subscribe to Covered Gain at a target price of $65,000 to sell BTC. The duration is 5 days. After 5 days, the price of BTC is $70,000 which is above the settlement price of $65,000; you will still sell BTC at $65,000 with your investment and interest earned in crypto.
