What is Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratio?
A Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio is an indicator representing the size of a loan compared to the value of the assets securing the loan. (e.g. if your loan’s outstanding balance is $5,000 and the value of your BTC collateral securing the loan is $10,000, the LTV ratio is 5,000 ÷ 10,000 = 50%.)
How is the LTV ratio calculated after the loan has been granted?
(Total unpaid value of principal + Total unpaid interest) / Collateral Market Value
What is ‘Collateral Health’?
Collateral Health indicates whether your collateral is at risk of being liquidated, based on your current Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio.
The different Collateral Health thresholds are as follows:
If your Collateral Health reaches the Poor/Critical threshold, a Margin Call will be triggered to notify you to rebalance your loan by depositing additional collateral or make a repayment.
When the LTV goes beyond the 85% threshold, 100% of your collateral will be liquidated.
What is a Margin Call?
If the value of your collateral falls below a certain threshold (and as a consequence, your LTV ratio rises above a certain amount), you will be notified and prompted to rebalance your loan by depositing additional collateral or make repayment as described above.
How do I rebalance my loan?
You can choose between the following options to resume the status of a ‘Good’ Collateral Health
