About Swappit

Swappit provides the most efficient solution to crypto-backed loans. We strive to increase innovation in the blockchain space by helping integrate crypto-markets with traditional capital markets. Swappit allows users to leverage their cryptocurrency assets to attain loans in their local currency, while offering the lowest interest rate on the market (4.80% APR). Our platform will be a fully scalable system that allows for instant approval, maximum flexibility and fully customizable loaning contracts.

Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned bitcoin to become a secure and decentralized way of exchanging goods and services. Swappit endeavors to reinvigorate that vision.

The Problem

HODL Culture

Investors are hoarding bitcoin in the hope that bitcoin price will rise, rather than treating it as a functional currency.

Low Money Velocity

  • In order for an economy to stay functional, it needs to maintain a healthy money velocity.
  • As of late May 2018, Bitcoin’s money velocity was only 0.689, compared to 5.484 and 1.439 for USD M1 and M2 supply respectively.

Inefficiencies in Current Solution

Current collateralized loaning platforms all require a match between lenders and borrowers, resulting in

  • Interest rates of these existing solutions range from 15-18%.
  • The amount of loans they can provide are limited.
  • The time it take for these platforms can take up to take weeks.

The solution

We at Swappit have developed a much more efficient solution. Through the use of derivatives, we allow users to create synthetic borrowing through their own cryptocurrencies. This is all achieved through our proprietary trading algorithms. We have eliminated the need for accredited lenders to match user loans, allowing us to offer our users instant affordable loans at interest rates less than half of the closest competitor.
