Borrowers receive a loan in fiat currency up to 60% of the value of their crypto assets. The crypto assets are stored in the Creditum Vault, which is an ultra secure proprietary software platform. The assets remain in the Vault until the loan is repaid at which time they are returned to the borrower.
As a general rule, most lenders will calculate the value of the crypto collateral by assessing the moving average of the crypto currency over the 30 days prior to the loan application. In some cases, should the volatility index of a particular crypto currency be particularly high, the average value may be calculated over a 90-day period.
It’s the key to the Creditum system and having it will put your finances at your fingertips. Please check the Creditum app page for full details.
