After providing the necessary information in connection with the creation of your Borrower Account, you hereby authorize Unchained Capital to conduct full AML and KYC verification checks.
To secure a Bitcoin Secured Loan, you must transfer your Bitcoins for collateral (the "Bitcoin Collateral"
The amount of the Bitcoin Secured Loan depends, in part, on the market value of bitcoins that you want or can pledge and the loan to market value of the Bitcoin Collateral ratio required by Unchained Capital (the "Loan to Market Ratio") (e.g., if Unchained Capital requires a loan to market value ratio of 2 to 1, and the market value of the Bitcoin Collateral is $100, then the amount of the Bitcoin Secured Loan would not exceed $50). If the market value of your Bitcoin Collateral decreases below the required Loan to Market Ratio or the ratio specified in your Loan Documents, then you will be required to either (a) provide additional Bitcoins as collateral to maintain the required Loan to Market Ratio in accordance with the Loan Documents or (b) repay part of the Bitcoin Secured Loan to maintain the required Loan to Market Ratio as determined by Unchained Collateral in its sole discretion.
You will be required to transfer your Bitcoin Collateral to a secure escrow account. When you pay off your Bitcoin Secured Loan in full (including interest and any other amounts owing), your Bitcoin Collateral will be transferred back to you.
If you default on the Bitcoin Secured Loan or any of the Loan Documents, we may sell some or all of your Bitcoin Collateral to repay the Bitcoin Secured Loan (including interest and any other amounts owing) in full.
