Why is it beneficial for me to get a loan in exchange for my cryptocurrency? Shouldn't I just sell instead?
The main problem when it comes to cryptocurrencies is, if I sell my cryptocurrency today, that is a final transaction. If I spend it, or exchange it, I lose all potential gains forever. So instead of spending it, it is more beneficial to get a loan - in order to finance my temporary liquidity problem and use my cryptocurrency as collateral for the loan. This way I can preserve the freedom of choice, should the price of the cryptocurrency significantly increase, I can always pay back the loan and get them back in full.
What are the guarantees of the buy-back option?
Every parameter of every loan are locked in token based smart contracts, and these smart contracts are written on the independent blockchain of Income Locker. Thanks to the blockchain technology these data is traceable, verifiable and impossible to manipulate. This also guarantees that the lender will be able to get its cryptocurrency upon repaying the loan at any time.
