Leofi one of the next things in the Leofinance Financial DeFi Ecosystem: A Lending Platform.

This next development, which listed in the Leofinance Roadmap and mentioned a few times on the Leo Roundtable Podcast, another Leofinance project Leofi a decentralized finance Lending Platform.

But to understand why it’s important I think we must understand what are three popular uses of Cryptocurrency Lending Platforms...

Borrow money using crypto as collateral...

This goes by many names Leverage Assets, taking out Loans, or creating a CDP, which stands for Credit Debt Product...

...A DeFi lending platform loans you a stable coin like Dai or USDT Tether or on Binance Smart Chain Vai...using your cryptocurrency as collateral.

It basically means you can get money out of your cryptocurrency without selling it...

Pause to think about that...

It allows you to tap into your profits on your cryptocurrency without selling it.

This is wonderful because it allows you to...

Avoid creating a taxable event...

Yes, when you invest 100 dollars and your crypto value rises to 1000 you want to take some profit...

But if you sell, you create a Gain or Profit, which is taxable, in some countries 20% goes to your government... so to reduce taxes, instead of selling, you could take out a loan...

... and it helps you another way: opportunity cost.

Investing all your cash in one thing means you can’t invest in another thing...

Yes you sunk all your money into Bitcoin...

And that was a great investment but what if you missed investing in Ether / Ethereum ...

The missed opportunity to invest in Ether because you invested in Bitcoin is called a missed opportunity or opportunity cost.

But...that’s not a problem, #if, you borrow money using Bitcoin as collateral and use the loan proceeds to buy Ethereum. Now you can do both..

So a loan also allows you to withdrawal capitol to invest in a second great cryptocurrency investment, or gold, or real estate... this is decentralized finance you get to choose.

So Leofi or DeFi Lending allows you to...

Take profits

Reduce or eliminate taxes owed

Eliminate Opportunity Cost

And one more thing...

A very important thing...

Capture Future Appreciation!

Yes, if Bitcoin rose from $2000 to $20,000 you would want to Sell, Take Profits, Pay Bills, Buy something nice...

But once you sell your Bitcoin you lose or miss all future profits from Bitcoin going to 30,000...40,000...50,000.... or 60,000...

If Bitcoin continues to Increase in value or Appreciate after you sold it, you miss out on all of that...

So that’s one more thing that a Collateralized loan does for you, it prevents you from missing out on future appreciation.

It’s code, it does care, so it’s fair to all

The beauty of DeFi lending is that the only qualification for the loan is having the qualifying crypto assets. For example the MakerDao on Ethereum accepts Ether and Bitcoin. They will give you the loan if you have Bitcoin or Ether to deposit. They don’t decide if it is a wise financial decision for you, nor do they evaluate whether you have a good credit score. If you pay back the loan, fine. If you don’t they sell enough of your crypto to satisfy the loan and then give you the rest of your crypto back. It’s code, it doesn’t care, so to everyone it’s fair.

So now you know why I am excited about Leofi Lending Platform, because it allows you to...

Take profits
Reduce or eliminate taxes owed
Eliminate Opportunity Cost
And Capture Future Appreciation!
Plus it’s code, it does care, so it’s fair.

Yep... the future around here is so bright I have to wear sunglasses...

The goal is to sell at the top of a bull market. Because crypto is very volatile collateralized loans in crypto are usually overcollateralized. But if the bear market crash is hard enough, your collateral may be liquidated. That liquidation is a tax event. What all this means is that you can't completely avoid taxes buy borrowing money against your crypto assets except if the loan is relatively short-term or is taken before a crypto run. For that purpose crypto loans are perfect. You can borrow money against your crypto in the beginning of a bull market without losing appreciating coins.

Good points.

Thanks for the comment. While crypto loans have different characteristics, strengths and weaknesses, these are both tools which are useful in different situations. It’s important to educate yourself about all options.

This sounds absolutely amazing. It's the first time someone is blushing this lending shit off well. Now my question here is, as though Leofinance will always owe its origination to Hive blockchain, will Leofi integrate all Hive Engine tokens or most as lending collaterals?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That’s a good question.

Thank you for your comment, and the compliment.
You also raise a very good question. I think that loans will initially be conservative and collateral will be Leo, BTC and/or ETH if a proper custodian can be found and employed. I think Hive-Engine tokens will be added later on a case by case basis evaluating depth and stability of each coins market.

Very good brief look at crypto-lending.

But how is someone will be eligible in lending crypto, like leo? It's this only for Leo, right?

Good question!

Great article. As a small addition, we can say that each new leofinance application is another step towards expanding the community and the number of users.

Great information, thanks for the article.
