How to deposit collateral into an Unchained loan 

Note: Prior to depositing collateral, all of your loan documents must be signed.

  1. Log in to your Unchained account.
  2. Navigate to your loan by clicking its name on your account dashboard.
  3. On the loan page, you'll see the total amount of collateral that's required to deposit to your loan. You'll need to deposit sufficient collateral by the loan start date.
  4. Click Deposit.
  5. Click Show address.
  6. Send bitcoin (BTC) to this address from a software wallet, hardware wallet, or exchange account.
  7. That's it! Once sufficient collateral has been confirmed in the loan's address, you'll see the updated collateral balance. You may need to refresh the page to see the changes.


If transferring collateral from your vault, navigate to your vault account and click 'transfer' to select the loan and collateral amount to deposit.
