How is the Monthly Savings Interest Calculated?

Interest on your bitcoin savings is compounded monthly, and is calculated using the Compound Monthly Rate. This is a function of the Annual Effective Rate (AER), and is derived by the following formula:


the Compounding Monthly Rate is: 


= Compound Interest Rate: monthly compounding interest rate
AER = Annual Effective Rate: as set by Magnr Savings

To calculate the Final Total Amount after the last compounding period, this can be found by using the formula as below:

A = Final Total Amount: Initial Investment plus all Interest
P = Initial Investment: your first Deposit amount
= Compound Interest Rate: monthly compounding interest rate
n = Number of Compound Periods: number of times interest is paid out
