You can start a Heleum account with as little as $5. Our partner, Uphold, allows US bank transfers as low as $50 and bank transfers in Europe as low as €75 or £100. They also allow transfers from other Uphold members or from outside cryptocurrency wallets with no minimums. Learn more on Uphold's transfer limits here.
When does Heleum charge a fee?
Heleum takes a share of the gains whenever balloons pop for a gain. This will typically happen automatically within 1 to 3 months, or when you withdraw enough funds from your Heleum account to cause balloons to pop.
Can I manually pop my balloons?
You may! Until there's a feature in the app for that, you may use the Withdraw Funds and withdraw enough to force balloons to pop. Then you can use the Add Funds feature to reinvest your gains. However, we strongly recommend that you let balloons float and pop automatically for maximum gains over time.
Doesn't Uphold charge fees?
Our partner, Uphold, provides you with the opportunity to use Heleum. They charge transaction fees between 1% and 1.4% of the transaction value, and a withdrawal fee of $3.99. See more details on their pricing here.
Do I have to pay taxes on my Heleum gains?
You should consult with a tax professional in your area. The answer is most likely: yes. Heleum will help you with an accurate record of your Heleum activity, and tax forms in some jurisdictions. We generally count taxable gains when balloons pop.
What if my account is down after the first few weeks?
Heleum accounts typically break even after the first month or two. We encourage users to stick with it for the long-term, and at least try Heleum for 3 months before deciding whether to continue.
Can I cancel anytime?
YES! We highly recommend you try Heleum for at least 3 months, but if you must go, simply use the Withdraw Funds option in the app, and we'll process your withdrawal ASAP. We can delete your records or provide you a copy of your transaction data upon request.
