Loans from are issued in USD, borrowers can also make payments in cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), or USDC. Built using the Teller lending protocol and backed by the TrueFi project, the platform issues uncollateralized crypto loans and can issue upto 30-year mortgages as large as $5 million at a 5.5% interest rate which require a 20% down payment. Each borrower’s down payment is staked, which accrues interest over time which can then be used to pay off their loan.
