At the moment, Bitcoin and Ethereum are available for lending.
The available collateral balance excludes KRW balance deposited within 24 hours. Restricted cash is excluded from the available total asset balance, but after 24 hours, the deposited KRW balance will be included in the available collateral balance.
For collateral raises, the 24 hour restriction is not placed on the newly deposited KRW amount.
At the maturity date, the lending will be automatically repaid at 00:00 time, the following day. The repayable amount is calculated by multiplying the asset market price at maturity by the borrowed units. If the repayable amount is greater than the borrowed assets, the corresponding collateral amount will be repossessed for the shortfall, and additional fees will be incurred.
Service fee is incurred on a daily basis at the service fee rate from the lending start date until maturity, unless the lending is prepaid within 3 days, in which case a minimum of 3 days service fee will be incurred.
Prepayment is possible, fees are calculated on a daily basis.
However, if the lending period is less than the min. period of 3 days, then the fee will be calculated for 3 days.
Addtional fee occur for using collateral for repayment.
Lending rate is calculated by dividing the borrowed amount by the collateral. If the collateral devalues along with a decrease in the market price, then the lending rate will increase.
If the lending rate increases above 84%, a notice for the need to increase collateral will be sent; above 88%, notice of impending auto-repayment will be sent; above 92%, irregardless of maturity date, the assets will be automatically sold.
At the Bull Lending page, users can increase the collateral amount.
