According to Fidelity, 1% is the maximum rate, though they may opt to apply a smaller spread percentage or none at all initially.

Currently, 35 states in the United States, including California, New York, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, will provide Fidelity Crypto. Customers in states where it isn't currently accessible can sign up for early access to be notified when the platform is approved.
