NFT Collateralized Loans Project Hits 400 ETH

By Tomadachi | Tomadachi | 30 Aug 2020

NFTfi - a marketplace where owners of desirable non fungible tokens (NFTs) can put them up as collateral for a loan and be matched with a lender willing to offer the funds on the strength of the guarantee - has passed the 400 ETH milestone in activated contracts.

How It Works

Anyone seeking a loan with any ERC-721 token can put that token up for collateralization.

Other users of the platform can now offer that person a loan if they are happy to accept the NFT in payment should the borrower fail to repay the loan.

Once a loan is agreed, ETH is paid out from the lenders account to the borrower, and the relevant NFT in the deal gets locked in a NFTfi smart contract.

If the loan is repaid as scheduled, the asset is transferred back to the borrower. If the loan is not repaid before the due date, the asset is transferred to the lender.

Familiar and Trending Names

As can be seen on the Twitter post from the NFTfi team, various types of NFTs are proving popular as collateral with the ever-lurking CryptoKitties topping the charts.

Closing the gap on the widely known NFTs though are more specialised and artistic ones such as those produced by the creator known as Josie.
