Dukascopy Bank, a financial leader in banking and investing is introducing its pioneering crypto lending program. This new service allows people who own cryptocurrencies to quickly get cash without giving up their cryptocurrency investments. With Dukascopy's crypto lending program, users can tap into 50% of their crypto assets' value without any repayment commitments. 

Step-by-step instructions to getting instant cash access, while keeping investments:

  1. Open a Multi-Currency Bank Account (MCA): Clients should start by setting up a multi-currency bank account with Dukascopy. This account will act as their central hub for crypto lending.
  2. Simple Cryptocurrency Transfer: Clients can effortlessly transfer their cryptocurrency holdings from their blockchain wallet to the Dukascopy MCA.
  3. Protect Your Investment: Clients are advised to navigate to the 'Investment' section of the MCA and select the "Crypto lending/borrowing" option.
  4. Complete the Trading Agreement: After selecting this option, clients will receive an email containing login details for their trading subaccount.
  5. Access Your Funds: The client's crypto investment is converted into regular currency. Half of it remains in the MCA, while the other half is transferred to the trading sub-account as collateral. This also opens a position that corresponds to the initial crypto investment. This process provides a seamless transition of digital assets from the blockchain to the Dukascopy account, enabling clients to utilize the converted regular currency for various financial activities.

Settlement Example 

As an example, if client funds their MCA account with 0.1 Bitcoin at a price of $20,000 per Bitcoin, they can choose to keep their investment and access 50% of its value:

  • The client will receive $1,000 (50% of market value) in your MCA account.
  • The remaining $1,000 (50% of market value) will be deposited into their newly established trading sub-account.
  • An automated long position of 0.1 BTC/USD at the prevailing price of $20,000 per Bitcoin will be opened in their trading account. All these operations are seamlessly automated, ensuring the retention of their initial 0.1 Bitcoin investment in the trading account.
