Choices with interest rates

A customer has various options available. The first option is a variable interest rate that works on a similar pattern to the Flash Return Rate. The other option is the fixed-rate loan. 

The yearly and regular rates, along with the total lending and repayment prices, are computed based upon the value used as security. The borrower can select the period over which a loan is paid back. The fixed-rate loans offer a maximum of 120 day period. After 120 days, it is automatically transitioned into a variable-rate loan. 

The Margin wallet of a borrower will contain the private loan. This results in a reduction in their regular interest rate. Borrowers will have to handle their own risk of the volatile LINK price.

To acquire access to Bitfinex Borrow, Bitfinex customers will be confirmed at the intermediate or complete level. The customers verified at the intermediate or full level can extract cryptocurrencies from the platform.
