CILIO Lend allows users to deposit and earn interest at competitive rates on their cryptocurrency. Users can deposit BTC and earn simple interest in the form of USDT as well as earn compounding interest on ETH, USDT, USDC, and DAI.
CILIO Borrow offers competitive rates and no fixed payment terms for stablecoin loans. Additionally, locked BTC deposits valued higher than a 65% LTV ratio on the borrowed amount will earn interest in USDT.
Instant Pay allows for free, simple, and instantaneous BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC, and DAI transactions between CILIO Finance members.
Assets stored within a user's CILIO Wallet are securely stored in CYBAVO VAULT. CYBAVO VAULT is a secure digital asset custody and management platform designed to fulfill the needs of financial institutions in terms of security, liquidity and control. CYBAVO VAULT presents a comprehensive security design, offering a high level of protection, combining a highly-secured private key vault with a strong access control and policy enforcement system.
CILIO Lend and CILIO Borrow deposits are used for lending to other CILIO Finance users, with any supplemental idle funds managed via reputable third-party platforms. These platforms include DeFi protocols such as Curve, Compound, Aave, and dYdX, as well as CeFi services such as FTX, Bitfinex, and Nexo. In order to protect the value of a user's loaned assets, the platform may also additionally hedge the crypto price when assets are being managed in a different cryptocurrency than originally deposited, such as the case with BTC being managed via USDT.
