Biterest interface: List of applications
How it works?
Borrowers place loan applications

If the application is placed at the listing on biterest.com, then it is already secured with collateral or the borrower is ready to promptly provide it with collateral by transferring bitcoins to a special multisig-address. The value of the collateral is higher than the loan amount because of the discount. The discounted collateral value insures you against the fluctuations of the bitcoin rate.

You select the loan application and accept it.

After accepting the loan application, the lender generates an access key to the collateral. It is the lender’s Private key to the multisig-address.

When the collateral is transferred to the multisig-address, the borrower’s payment details will become available to the lender to allow the transfer of funds. The lender always pays only the loan application secured with collateral (bitcoin).

You transfer the loan amount directly to the borrower

Payment details and transfer options are indicated in each loan application. Borrowers are responsible for providing correct information. Lenders are responsible for transfer of the amount in accordance with provided information

FAQ
  • What will happen if BTC rate will drop sharply?

    To protect lenders from short-term volatility of BTC, we apply loan to value ratio of 70%. In other words, the amount of collateral BTC should be 30% higher than total amount of loan and interest due, based on BTC rate on the moment of placing loan application.

    30% ratio is determined based on retrospective analysis of BTC rate fluctuations. 30% higher value of collateral is mutually beneficial for both lenders and borrowers. BTC rate is constantly appreciating, but the rate might be affected by sharp short-term fluctuations. Applying loan to value of 70% (30% higher value of the collateral over loan and due interest amount) guarantees stability of the transaction for both lenders and borrowers.
