Loan issuance & return

Unfortunately, in some cases, not much has changed. If you wanted to get quick cash to cover your credit card debt, to buy a cheap flight ticket to Paris or to pay for the home improvement, you had to sell your crypto-assets. There was no other way to enjoy crypto wealth in a responsible way. It has been very frustrating, because when the market is rising, smart individuals do not want to lose their future gains, right?

The exact amount of a maximum loan will depend on the value of cryptocurrency provided as a security deposit. The decision about the loan will be instant.

The loan amount will be transferred the same day, including weekends and public holidays to holders of a free HODL Finance credit card. If clients choose to transfer to their bank account or other convenient option, service will take additional several days, since international bank transfer can take up to 7 business days, an EU payment — up to 1 business day.

After you finish your last loan payment, the return of loan is confirmed in the system automatically and your collateral is returned to you.

No credit checks

Credit checks, performed by old-fashioned financial institutions, slow loan issuance tremendously and worsens borrowers your credit rating. HODL Finance will NOT perform any credit checks, your cryptocurrency merely serves as a guarantee of return of a loan.

The most popular currencies available

Loans will be issued in the most popular forms of fiat money — United States Dollars (USD), Great Britain Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), Japan Yen (JPY) etc. In the first stage of operations, HODL Finance will issue loans in USD and EUR. Although we launch with a limited offer of currencies as variety will increase over time for your convenience.
