20% APY: My HBD play
I haven't been a big fan of HBD.
But with the news of 20% p.a. of interest in HBD released, it's time to think about my Hive-backed dollars play.
The best part of this change is that I do not need to go the bank to get this fat interest rate for my savings. I can do it right at my Hive account.
Some basic ground rules to understand first.
There is a cost involved in exchanging Hive to HBD, typically 5%. And the entire exchange is completed in 3.5 days, based on a 3.5 day median valuation.
Next I have to move my HBD to my Savings to generate a 20.00% APR as defined by the witnesses.
Once transferred to the Savings, the amount that can be used (liquid) is subject to 3 days withdrawal waiting period.
Interest is claimed every time there is an interaction with the Savings account according to this post.
So in sum, the cost is 5% in exchanging Hive to HBD.
What's my plan?
Since I have a DCA plan for Hive, I would bite the bullet and hold the lump sum amount of HBD meant for DCA in a year in Savings. This ensures that I have the 20% APY, which is better than leaving it in the bank.
After that is done, I will swap my HBD to Hive at the start of every week or month.
Overall, I should have gotten a better deal, given my DCA plan.
Is there a flaw in this thinking? I would like to get some advice from the Hive community.
