Frequently asked questions
How is Sock different from CoinBase, Binance etc?
Sock is entirely self-custodial, meaning we never touch your funds, they are secured on the blockchain, and can only be accessed by you. Centralized exchanges like Coinbase and Binance hold custody of your money, and can be perceived as an additional layer of risk. Additionally, most centralized exchanges will charge fees for earning that are opaque, and may appear to earn lower vAPYs.
Is Sock Safe? What does non-custodial / self-custodial mean?
Sock uses industry-leading security for peace of mind. Non-custody means that Sock never touches or controls your money. Your funds are secured on the blockchain, and can only be accessed and controlled by you.
Does Sock re-invest or loan out my funds?
No, sock never touches customer funds. Unlike traditional banks or other investing apps, your money stays in your account and is always available to you. Sock is a non-custodial investment app.
How are swaps fee-free?
Sock operates the Arbitrum blockchain network. Arbitrum is lightning fast and inexpensive to transact on. Sock sponsors the cost of any network fees, making it free for you to make swaps. Excluding Bitcoin.
What are limit and stop-loss orders?
Stop-loss and limit orders are essentially orders you place in advance to sell at a certain floor (stop-loss) or ceiling (limit) price. Either can be set up with a dollar amount so that you can create rules like “sell 2 ETH at $3,500”. If the price of ETH exceeds $3,500, your order will be executed. All orders can be edited or canceled at any time.
How are you able to automate buys and sells while being non-custodial?
Sock uses an Ethereum blockchain feature called Account Abstraction, which enables you to grant permission to your Sock account to set triggered buys or sells on your behalf based on the rules you set. Sock is a non-custodial investing app.
How does earning work?
Sock utilizes the decentralized lending and borrowing network Aave to enable you to earn yield on your crypto. Aave has over $11 billion dollars in value locked and is widely recognized as one of the largest and safest protocols in decentralized finance. Your tokens are deposited into an Aave lending pool where they earn a variable rate APY depending on borrowing demand. Interest compounds every second (yes really), and yield earned is automatically reinvested.
What are the risks of earning?
Sock utilizes the decentralized lending and borrowing network Aave to enable you to earn yield on your crypto. No platform can be considered entirely risk free. The risks related to the Aave platform are the smart contract risk (risk of a bug within the protocol code) and liquidation risk (risk on the collateral liquidation process). Every possible step has been taken to minimize the risk as much as possible-- the protocol code is public and open source and it has been audited.
