  • You may apply up to 100,000,000 KRW in Bitcoin or Ethereum per account for lending service.
  • You must set up a collateral upon applying and may only use up to 80% of the collateral for the application amount.
    The minimum application amount is 0.01BTC or 0.5 ETH. There is no limit on the number of times the service can be used.
    [Example] Amount applicable for service = Collateral(KRW) / Market price of virtual asset upon applying x 80%
  • You may apply for the service starting from 3 days to 50 days and service use will be automatically terminated after this period.
2. Asset Deposit
  • When the service application is approved, the virtual asset will be deposited into the Bithumb wallet that you applied for. You may use the deposited asset for transactions or withdrawal.
    However, the amount that was set as the collateral cannot be used for transactions or withdrawn until the amount is paid. You may add the collateral more if necessary.
3. Repayment
  • When service use is terminated, the virtual asset you borrowed will be repaid. Repayment occurs in the form of Maturity repayment when the service usage period is terminated, midterm repayment when the service is terminated in the middle of the service usage period by the request of the customer, and automatic repayment due to changes in the lending ratio due to virtual asset price fluctuations.
  • The usage fees for the usage period are also repaid on repayment.
    However, if repayment occurs within 3 days of service use, minimum usage fees for the service usage period will be charged.
