Quick Answer

Collateral at SpectroCoin Loans is the crypto assets clients place as a guarantee that the loan will be repaid. The available collateral currencies are BTC, ETH, XEM, and DASH.

In the field of crypto-backed lending, collateral is the cryptocurrency asset that the borrower pledges as a guarantee that the loan is going to be repaid. In traditional banking, a common example of collateral is mortgage – the asset (house, apartment) that is being financed is usually the collateral that secures the credit. The crypto collateral is returned upon full repayment of the credit.

Our loans are denominated in Euros, so the value of the collateral is always regarded as its value in Euros.
Currently, SpectroCoin Loans accept four leading cryptocurrencies as loan collateral options. The available options are Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dash (DASH), NEM (XEM). It is worth noting that SpectroCoin is the only place in the market to offer an opportunity to pledge XEM cryptocurrency as collateral.
