How does Uphold set its conversion rates?

Uphold uses the mid-market price when quoting the value of holdings on our system and for our currency conversions. The mid-market price is the midpoint between the bid and ask price quoted in the financial markets. For example, if the bid price is $305 and the ask is $295, then the price used for buying and selling that asset is $300. For our precious metals, we use the midpoint between Gold Bullion International’s (GBI) buy /sell prices.

As part of our commitment to fairness and transparency, we are proud to use the mid-market price to eliminate any spread and ensure no hidden fees, so that our members receive the market’s most transparent and fair pricing.

In the case of bitcoin, we're constantly monitoring rates and liquidity from multiple exchange partners and, in our efforts to reduce volatility, we pick our rates based on which exchanges have the highest liquidity. We do not endorse any particular mid-market price and we cannot verify if the mid-market price reflects exact fair market value at any time.

 $1,000 Transaction Allowance for non-verified members

Uphold requires all members to become verified members when the cumulative value of their lifetime transactions (excluding the addition of funds to their accounts) exceeds $1,000 U.S. dollars.

This is for your safety and the security of the Uphold network at large. When this allowance is exceeded, accounts will be restricted from conducting transactions of any kind until the account has been fully verified. Our team reviews all transactions for compliance with our membership agreement.

Inactive accounts 

To keep your Uphold account active you simply need to initiate a transaction within your Uphold wallet every 90 days. A transaction is considered any action which value is moved and is initiated by a member within their Uphold wallet. Including a bank transfer (deposit or withdrawal), moving value between cards, sending value to another member, email address, or crypto address.

The following is a summary of cumulative fees that will be automatically collected from inactive accounts:

  • 90 - 180 days: 1 USD per month
  • 180 - 365 days: 5 USD per month
  • 365+ days: 10 USD per month
