Lending allows you to borrow against your crypto assets (known as ‘Virtual Assets’) without selling them. You can deposit them as Collateral and take out crypto loans to fulfill your financial needs, use for Margin Trading on the Exchange, or hedge on other exchange platforms.

How does Lending differ from Crypto Credit? Lending is offered on the Exchange, while Crypto Credit is available in the App.

It also provides more flexible metrics, catering to the needs of institutional users. Lending users can take up to three active loans at one time, subject to loan terms.

Spot Wallet

The primary crypto wallet for your Exchange account (a.k.a. Account), which you can use to receive loans, deposit Collateral, and make loan repayments.

Loan-to-Value (LTV)

LTV is the ratio of your loan to the value of your Collateral. When you borrow a loan, we calculate your loan amount or required Collateral based on the following formula:

LTV = (Loan Amount) ÷ (Market Value of Collateral)

When a loan becomes active, we monitor your loan's LTV based on the following formula:

LTV = (Outstanding Balance) ÷ (Market Value of Collateral)
