A margin call will be triggered if your loan's collateral-to-principal ratio falls below 150%. If you do not satisfy the margin call in time, collateral will be liquidated.
We send courtesy email notifications at the 175% and 160% CTP levels to advise you of your loan status and encourage early action to avoid a margin call by making a principal payment or depositing additional bitcoin as collateral.
150% CTP ratio—first margin callAn automated margin call will occur if your CTP ratio reaches below 150%. When the margin call is initiated, you will receive an email notifying you to bring your loan's collateral to principal ratio back to 165%. You will have 48 hours to fulfill the first margin call.
135% CTP ratio—accelerated margin call
An automated accelerated margin call will occur if your CTP ratio reaches below 135%. When the accelerated margin call is initiated, you will receive an email notifying you to bring your loan's collateral to principal ratio back to 165%. You will have 4 hours to fulfill the accelerated margin call.
110% CTP ratio—liquidation
At a CTP ratio of 110%, a liquidation of loan collateral will be initiated immediately to pay the outstanding loan obligations and close the loan; any remaining collateral will be returned to you.
Warning: If an event of default occurs due to failure to satisfy your CTP requirements, our current process is to partially liquidate collateral and to apply the net proceeds to outstanding balances, less selling fees to Unchained Trading, LLC, in order to achieve a collateral-to-principal ratio of 200%. If your loan’s outstanding principal balance would be less than $10,000 USD following a liquidation, we will instead liquidate sufficient collateral to fully repay the outstanding loan balance, less selling fees to Unchained Trading, LLC. Unchained reserves its rights to change or eliminate this process in response to market conditions.
