imBTC is an Ethereum token that represents 1:1 the value of bitcoin. Holders can mint, exchange, redeem, and receive the income on imBTC from the Tokenlon platform.

Lend and borrow imBTC on Lendf.Me

By integrating the systematic interest from imBTC, lenders of imBTC on Lendf.Me can now enjoy both imBTC’s intrinsic interest and the interest generated from Lendf.Me platform.

Lendf.Me is the first DeFi platform that supports imBTC collateral, facilitating instant loans at the most competitive funding cost.

Who will use imBTC lending?

For illustration purposes, let’s assume a cryptocurrency miner wants to take out a loan with bitcoin as collateral.

  1. First, he can mint imBTC with bitcoin using the imToken app.
  2. He then supplies imBTC to the Lendf.Me platform and
  3. Takes out a USDT loan at 7.5% APR.

Given that imBTC carries a systematic interest of around 1.12% (excluding the interest generated from Lendf.Me), while assuming a collateral cover ratio of 1.4x, the effective cost of borrowing for the miner would be 6% APR (7.5% -1.12%*1.4). Taking into account the interest generated from Lendf.Me, i.e 1% on the supply side (1%*1.4), the effective cost of borrowing for the miner, would even go down to 4.6% APR (6%-1.4%).
