How do I calculate the interest on my lending orders (as a lender)?

Your interest depend on the following factors:

  • Amount Lent

  • Daily Interest Rate

  • Loan Tenure

  • CRO Staked (The higher your CRO stake, the higher the discount for service fees)

Estimated Interest: Amount Lent x Daily Interest Rate x Loan Tenure

Simple interest is used to calculate the daily interest that you receive. Your interest payout will be disbursed once the borrower has repaid partially or in full (calculated on a pro-rata basis in case of a partial repayment). A fixed charge is deducted from the interest as a fee.

This fixed fee depends on the amount of CRO you have staked.

CRO Stake < 100K

CRO Stake ≥ 100K

Flat Fee

18%

15%

For example:

  • Lent Token: CRO

  • Amount Lent: 10,000

  • Loan Tenure: 7 days

  • Daily Interest Rate: 0.05%

  • Auto-Lend: Yes

  • Flat Fee Charged: 18% of interest (40,000 CRO staked)

Fee charged: 18%

Daily Interest Rate: 10,000 CRO * 0.05% = 5 CRO

Interest for Period: 0.05% x 7 = 0.35%

Return for Period: 0.05% x 7 x 10,000 = 35 CRO

Total Fee Paid: 35 CRO * 18% = 6.3 CRO

How do I borrow virtual assets?

  1. To borrow assets with P2P Lending, go to the P2P Lending page from your Dashboard under the Lending tab on the left navigation panel

  2. In the Overview tab, click Borrow. In this menu, click Take Out a New Loan. Please note that a maximum of three P2P Loans can be taken up at any one time. Also, you are required to maintain an LTV ratio of ≤ 50%. Refer to this page for more information regarding LTV and Loan Health.

  3. After clicking Take Out a New Loan, a pop-up window will appear. Input the following details to set up your loan request:

  • Loan Amount - This must fall within the Available Entitlement as set out in the pop-up window.

  • Estimated Collateral Amount - This is the collateral amount for your loan, and must fall within your available balance.

  • Initial Loan-to-Value (LTV) - The initial ratio of your Loan Amount to the value of your collateral. Refer to this page for more information.

  • Term Length - The duration of your loan

Important note: a borrower will not be able to top-up collateral. This means, if there is any price movement of the relevant virtual assets, your LTV ratio may drop, triggering liquidation. Forced Liquidation will be triggered when your LTV ratio reaches 85%, and we have the right to charge liquidation fees (currently at 0.16% of the remaining amount of loan). As such, it is important that you monitor your LTV ratio at all times, and in order to prevent forced liquidation, you should repay the whole or a sufficient part of the loan (as the case may be) to improve your LTV ratio.

4. Click Continue after you have ensured that all details are accurate. You will then be directed to the Loan Details screen. For compliance reasons, you are required to provide the following information:

  • Daily Interest Rate: 0.0515%

  • CRO Staked: 40,000

  • LTV: 25%

  • Flat Fee: 18% of interest (40,000 CRO staked)

Fee Charged 0.6%

Daily Interest Rate: 0.0515%

Interest for Period: 0.0515% x 7 = 0.3605%

Interest for Period: 0.0515% x 7 x 10,000 = 36.05

Annual Interest Rate: 0.0515% x 365 = 18.7975%
