Loan limits & Approval
Once your deposit on the network, the market value of your crypto is calculated in real time and a loan limit is extended according to the Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio for this specific asset. The current collateral options available on the Nexo Platform are Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, NEXO, and BNB which provide LTV between 30% and 50%.
In other words, if you stake $10,000 worth of BTC, you will be able to withdraw an instant loan of approximately $5,000.
After the deposit, you can immediately withdraw your loan to your bank account or stablecoin address (Tether (USDT), TrueUSD (TUSD), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), USD Coin (USDC), Dai (DAI) and Paxos Standard Token (PAX). There are no credit checks - you usually get your cash in 24 hours or less.
The annual percentage interest rate (APR) starts at 8% (when using the NEXO tokens as collateral or as repayment) and is capped at 16% APR when not utilizing NEXO Tokens.
No minimum loan repayments are required, flexibility at its finest.
You can repay all or some of your loan early at any time as you only pay interest for the days you borrow. You can make loan repayments using both crypto (BTC, ETH, etc.), including the collateral in your wallet, as well as fiat currencies (USD, EUR and 40+ other currencies).
Let’s say you want to buy a $20,000 car and instead of selling your Bitcoin, you would like to use it for an instant crypto-backed loan from Nexo.

Crypto Loans can also be an important tool for individuals and businesses looking to optimize their tax liabilities using the so-called “Billionaire Strategy” For decades billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and Steve Jobs have funded their lifestyle by borrowing against their stock.
