In which states does Unchained Capital make personal loans?
Unchained Capital makes personal loans in most US states. Requirements on minimum size, interest rates, and other details do differ between states so reach out to understand whether we can work with you.

Does borrowing with Unchained affect my credit score?
No. Unchained Capital does not perform a credit check when evaluating borrowers. We do not report information to any credit bureau.
What happens to my collateral during my loan?
Once approved, we will generate an address in our cold storage vault dedicated to your loan. You will send your collateral to this address.
Funds will remain in this address for the duration of your loan. You will be able to monitor the balance at any time using our website or any other block explorer you wish.
For maintenence reasons, we may move the funds from the original vault address to another vault address. You will be notified in advance in such a scenario.
We do not leverage your collateral for other products or services (no fractional-reserve lending).
When you close your loan and repay your principal, your collateral will be returned to an address of your choosing.
If your loan enters default at any time, we will be forced to liquidate a portion of your collateral in order to cover our principal cost and any unpaid interest. Any remainder will be returned to an address of your choosing.
How does Unchained Capital store collateral?
We maintain a multisig cold wallet backed by hardware wallets. These hardware wallets are PIN/password protected and operated by authorized signing staff in multiple US cities.
Vault addresses we provision from our multisig cold wallet are single-purpose and dedicated to each customer loan.
At no point does customer collateral reside in a network-connected (hot) wallet of any kind.
Unchained Capital does not automate withdrawals of collateral. All transactions require intervention and coordination of multiple executives and authorized signing staff.
