Frequently Asked Questions
The main problem when it comes to cryptocurrencies is, if I sell my cryptocurrency today, that is a final transaction and a taxable event in many countries. Moreover, 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 using my cryptocurrency as collateral. This way I am free to choose to get back my cryptocurrency back in full in the event of a significant price increase.
Every parameter of every loan are locked in token based smart contracts, and these smart contracts are written on INLOCK’s independent blockchain. Thanks to blockchain technology, this 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.
