Simply put, you auto-save money for each minute you play games. You can set how much you want to save per minute by adjusting your Time Trigger in Settings within the Navigation screen. You also earn real cash dividends for completing in-game objectives called Missions.
How Does Leaderboard Work?
The Leaderboard is a fun way to win extra money each week. There are 10 tiers on the Leaderboard. Tiers 1-9 payout cash rewards; tier 10 pays out XP only. The top ten gamers plus the top 50% of all Blast gamers will be tiered on the Leaderboard. The higher your tier, the more money you win each week. The cash rewards fluctuate based on user base engagement with XP. The Leaderboard cycle refreshes every week on Friday at 6pm PST; cash rewards are disbursed on Wednesday on or around 9am PST.
How is My Blast Account Interest Calculated?
The available balance in a Blast Account earns Annual Percentage Yield (APY) as described on this page. APY refers to the amount of interest that a Blast Account will accrue over a period of one year. The Annual Percentage Yield is expressed as an annualized rate, based on a 365-day year. APY accounts for compound interest and compounds monthly. The available balance in a Blast Account at the end of a month will be eligible to accrue interest.
The APY is subject to change at any time at Blast’s discretion and will be updated on this page. Blast Account holders will be notified of any such changes. The current APY is reflected below. The APY currently in effect will apply to all Blast Accounts, including those that have previously earned interest at a different APY.
APY is calculated as: Principal x Interest Rate* x Time; where the Principle is the available Blast Account balance at the end of a month and the Time period is one year.
*The current APY is 1% as of 6/1/18
What is Return on Investment (ROI)?
Return on Investment (ROI) is a measure of how much a Blast Account has grown as a result of Mission Dividends, Leaderboard Winnings, and Annual Percentage Yield (interest), stated as a percentage of the current total Blast Account balance.
ROI is calculated as the Lifetime Returns that an account has earned divided by the Current Blast Account Balance (Lifetime Returns ÷ Current Blast Account Balance).
For purposes of calculating ROI, “Lifetime Returns” equals the sum of Mission Dividends, Leaderboard Winnings, and Annual Percentage Yield earned since a Blast Account was opened. “Current Blast Account Balance” equals a user’s total Blast Account deposits minus total Blast Account withdrawals.
ROI is calculated using the Current Blast Account Balance and does not account for amounts withdrawn previously from the Blast Account or pending transactions that may affect current savings or earnings.
Can I withdraw my money at any time?
Yes. You can withdraw your available* funds anytime. Withdrawals take 3-5 business days to settle.
Do I have to link a checking account?
Yes. In order to receive your cash dividends from completed Missions, or to withdraw money, you will be asked to link a checking account.
How do I update my connected bank account?
You can update your connected bank account in My Bank in Settings within the Navigation screen.
Is my favorite game supported?
Blast works with almost every game in the Google Play Store. In the near future, Blast will also work with games from the Apple App Store, PC games such as League of Legends, most games on Steam, and games from Blizzard. Games for PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo will also work with Blast soon.
How do I close my account?
You can withdraw your funds anytime or turn off savings features by setting your Time Trigger to 0¢ in Settings within the Navigation screen. If you want to permanently close your account, please contact customer support.
