StableHouse Logo

Due to a strong demand for account opening, StableHouse is currently placing potential customers on a waitlist first. I waited for 5 weeks before receiving an invite to open my account in March 2022.

Notes:

  • It is advisable to first join the waitlist, then research the platform to decide whether you want to proceed to open an account.
  • You do not need the referral code when joining the waitlist. Enter it only during the sign-up process to enjoy referral benefits.

Promotion period: till 31 July 2022 5pm (UTC)

In summary, new users can benefit from the ‘Referral’ and ‘Welcome Bonus’ programs to receive up to 140 USDC in bonuses.

Referral Program:

  • Receive 40 USDC when you open a StableHouse account with the referral code: WmaAvB, and fulfill the following requirements:
    • get KYC verified.
    • make a minimum deposit of $500 and keep it in your account for 60 days.
      • StableHouse only looks at the value of the underlying asset when it arrives in your account. The change (drop or rise) of the assets price will not impact earning the reward.

Welcome Bonus Program:

  • be rewarded with US$100 equivalent in value in Digital Assets to your first deposit that is at least US$5,000 equivalent in value, and keeping this deposit in your Stablehouse account for 60 days.

Usage Notes and Tips

KYC via Onfido

[Mar 2022] Onfido supports the KYC process for StableHouse. I noted that you cannot upload scans of your identity card on your desktop computer and take the verification selfie on your mobile. Both actions have to be performed on the same device.

Receiving my referral bonus and deposit bonus

I deposited 1000 USDC on 1 April 2022 and received two emails moments later:

Email 1: Thanks for making your first StableHouse deposit

Thank you for making your first StableHouse deposit. Donโ€™t forget, our referral bonus is all yours when you keep your deposit in your account for 30 days. Thatโ€™s 40 USDC paid straight into your StableHouse account. Plus, [referrer name] gets their bonus too.

Email 2: StableHouse is rewarding you

Thank you for making your deposit of 1,000.00 USDC.

Youโ€™re now eligible to earn 100 USDC

Now you have made your first deposit, all you have to do is keep it in your account for 30 days. Once this period is over, we will pay your deposit reward straight into your StableHouse account.

Would update again when I receive the actual bonuses in my account.

Supported blockchains

[Mar 2022] StableHouse supports both the Bitcoin and the Ethereum blockchain. They are working on supporting other blockchains which would help bring down the cost of depositing assets into the platform.

Withdrawal fees

Crypto withdrawal fees can be found here. As of March 2022, the withdrawal fees for USDC is 10 USDC which is pretty competitive.
