P2P lending of real money secured with Bitcoin collateral. How it works?

Obtaining collateral with Private key

After the credit transaction ended, you need to pick up your collateral. To do that, you will need to: Install Electrum bitcoin purse.

Obtain three keys: your Private key, the market's Private key, the Public key of the other party (the last two keys will be provided after the end of the credit transaction).

To gain access to the collateral, follow these steps:

  1. Launch Electrum. Immediately after launch you will be prompted to specify the Electrum purse file or to create one. Since in this example we will create a new purse to get collateral, we simply click Next.

  1. Select Multi-signature wallet. Click Next.

  1. In the next window set the following values of the sliders:
    • From 3 consigners
    • Require 2 signatures

Click Next.

  1. Select Use a master key. Click Next.

  1. In the Add Cosigner 1 window you must specify the Private key that you generated in your browser using the Simple method when you created or accepted a credit application. Click Next.

    Note: If the Next button is locked, make sure that the key box has no extra characters or blanks.

ATTENTION! If you have not generated the keys and instead specified your Public key, you should read a different guideline on accessing a collateral here.

  1. In the next window Electrum will generate a Master Public Key. You don't need to change it. Click Next.
