1754 Factory: Bridging 80k+ borrowers to DeFi

…and that is 80k real-world borrowers. Users on bling.eu use their cash advance feature for microloans (~€80) to its borrowers. To date, Bling.eu has originated over 20,000 advances with no defaults.

A Safer Investment Than Most

The senior tranche of Bling’s bonds, which are backed by its thousands of professionally rated retail cash advances, offers Tinlake users direct access to a type of asset which has been long reserved to large institutional investors. This Series 1 offers Tinlake users an extra layer of security provided by an over- collaterized bond and the seniority offered by its senior tranche.
For reference, in 2020 a portfolio of auto loans offers an average return that varied btw 4.2 and 4.5% APR with a default rate averaging 4.94%.
Bling Series 1 DROP tranche seems to offer an attractive risk/return ratio in comparision. — Fabien Dureuil, Co-founder

Of course, do your own research and don’t hesitate to ask for advice from your investment advisers to ensure the suitability of this investment product.
