The bond cycle is divided into four stages: “application and pledge-rating-financing-repayment”. In “My Issuance”, the issuer can track the status and information of different stages of the bond.

3.1 After the bond issuance application is submitted successfully, the bond enters the rating stage.

The bond rating process will continue for 24 hours. Within the validity period, the bond needs to have two kinds of rating information: professional rating and community voting of not less than 10,000 FOR; after the end of the validity period, the final rating of the bond is determined according to the proportion of votes of professional rating and community rating. The rating information is used as a reference for bond investment.

If the final rating level is D, the bond issuance fails and the issuer can retrieve the pledged tokens.

3.2 After the bond obtains the final rating level (non-D level), the bond enters the financing stage.

The financing process will last 72 hours. If the financing ratio meets the minimum financing ratio set by the issuer within the validity period, the financing is successful; otherwise, the financing fails.

At this stage, the issuer should pay attention to the value fluctuations of its pledged tokens, and promptly replenish the pledged tokens according to the prompts to avoid financing failures caused by the pledged tokens’ value falling by 30% and not being replenished in a timely manner.

If the financing fails, the bond issuer can retrieve the pledged tokens.

3.3 After the bond financing is successful, the bond enters the repayment stage.

At this stage, the issuer needs to transfer the principal and interest repayment on the bond maturity date (that is, the repayment date).

If the issuer fails to make timely payments within 24 hours after the bond expires, the overdue bonds will be liquidated to repay the investor’s investment principal and interest.

In the repayment stage, the issuer should also pay attention to the value fluctuation of its pledged tokens, and promptly replenish the pledged tokens according to the prompts to avoid the liquidation of some pledges caused by the pledged tokens’ value falling by 30% and not being refilled in time.
