HOW TO GIVE OUT A LOAN?

Important to note, the amount of collateral in BTC depends on the discount rate. The higher the discount rate is, the lower the risk of Margin Call will be.

STEP 2: top-up your transaction fee balance

Top-up transaction fee balance to be able to accept selected loan application. The amount of deducted transaction fee is 2.5% of the loan amount. Topping up the transaction fee balance increases the lender's responsibility level.

STEP 3: CREATE ACCESS KEYS

Create Public and Private keys to get access to the collateral or upload your existing Public key. Keep your Private key until the end of the current loan period.

STEP 4: TRANSFER the loan amount directly to your borrower

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

STEP 5: verify collateral is registered in the blockchain

After a loan application is accepted, Biterest creates a MultiSig-address using your Public key, your borrower's Public key and own one. The collateral BTC will be stored using that MultiSig-address by the end of the loan.

STEP 6: Receive money back

The borrower repays your loan and interest by the end of the loan period. If the borrower doesn't repay the loan on time, you will become the owner of highly liquid collateral. We will send you the necessary keys to get access to the BTC collateral which is stored using a Multisig-address.

FAQ

You have to transfer the loan amount in the currency indicated in the loan application. Biterest now allows placing loan applications in more than 60 currencies.
Biterest is a peer-to-peer (P2P) platform which connects two independent users. Biterest doesn't lend or borrow money itself. Your borrower will be a bitcoiner who is looking to get money for current needs without selling the Bitcoins.
There are available the following money transfer options: PayPal, QIWI, Webmoney and international bank transfer. The transfer options are selected by the borrower as part of the loan application. You have to send money in the way indicated in the loan applications. Money transfer fees are covered by the sender of the payment.
The interest rate, loan period, transfer options and currency are defined by the borrower upon placing the loan application. You can then choose a loan application that matches your investment expectations. When searching for applications you can refine your selection by specifying the preferred loan period, interest rate, transfer options and currency that suit you.
No-one is able to use collateral Bitcoins until the end of the loan period. They are stored using a reliable Multisig-address which requires at least 2 keys to get access to Bitcoins. Each of the three users (you, your borrower and Biterest) owns only one neccessary key.
To protect lenders and borrowers from the short-term volatility of BTC, the amount of the collateral in Bitcoins depends on the discount rate. The higher the discount rate is, the lower the risk of Margin Call will be because of a sharp depreciation in the value of Bitcoin. A borrower can modify the discount rate of each loan application by themself. The discount rate can be varied from 1% to 99% (more than 30% reduces the risk of Margin Call to the minimum level).
You are be able to sell collateral BTC on BTC-exchanges, online money-change sites or you may contact Biterest support for assistance. We can assist you in liquidating collateral position.
