Crypto lender Nexo said is will stop its Earn Interest Product (EIP) for all U.S. clients, residents and citizens, effective April. 1.

Nexo's decision comes after the lender paid a $22.5 million fine last month to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for failing to register the offering and sale of EIP. The firm also said at the time that it is stopping EIP in eight states and has stopped onboarding clients in the U.S.

However, Nexo also said that its other lending offering will continue as usual and that clients will continue to earn the same interest as EIP until April 1, 2023.
