What Bitfinex Customers Need To Know
According to Bitfinex, a user can choose between a variable interest rate based on the Flash Return Rate (FRR) or a fixed-rate loan.
Many factors such as the amount used as collateral, the loan amount, borrowing period, and preferred interest rate option determine the annual and daily rates, coupled with the total lending and repayment amounts.
Moreover, borrowers are liable to choose the period over which a loan is repaid, but fixed-rate loans are to be repaid after 120 days. All fixed-rate loans are automatically converted into variable-rate loans once they expire.
“The personal loan will be credited to a borrower’s Margin wallet. Borrowers can make partial or full repayments on both the principal and interest of the loan by moving funds back into their Margin wallet, thereby reducing their daily interest rate. Borrowers will have to manage their own risk of the fluctuating XTZ price.”
