Jan. 8 update — in the community Telegram channel, one of SALT’s employees posted the following clarification to the loan conditions. While SALT can be used to repay principal and interest, early repayment is not possible, which limits the profitability of the arbitrage trade. Tomorrow, we will publish a retrospective on the events of the past couple weeks and what the arbitrage opportunity is like with this additional information.

“There has been a lot of questions regarding the use of SALT to repay principal and interest. When we announced this option it was always stated with the clear message that there would be limitations and conditions, and terms of each would be finalized at the origination of each loan. At this time, one of those limitations is the early repayment of a loan. This means that you can repay 100% of your loan’s monthly payments of principal and interest with SALT. This is subject to change, but we intend to keep this going into perpetuity. The ability to repay ANY portion of the principal is something that was announced for the first time when we launched, and we are glad to be able to add this use for SALT for our community.”

So you cannot pay it off early.

And then this application: https://imgur.com/a/9p69L

Shows this:

Loan-to-Value & Interest Rate

20% LTV, 10.00% APR
40% LTV, 14.00% APR
60% LTV, 18.00% APR
80% LTV, coming soon

Term - 12 months, 24 months, 36 months

So the best you could do would be 12 months @ 10% and would require locking up ~3.5 BTC for a $10,000 loan. You should pay $550 in interest. $10,550 total with SALT valued at $27.50 would require 383.64 SALT, plus 1 SALT for the membership and 0.5 SALT to transfer from Bittrex to Salt. Current ask on Bittrex is around $13.60, making the total cost of the $10,000 loan $5237.90. Not accounting for any BTC transfer fees. Make $4762 in 12 months by locking up $50k worth of BTC. That's like getting a 9.5% return on your idle BTC, plus the BTC is likely to increase in value over that 12 months.

This is assuming you get 100% of your BTC back. I don't see anything suggesting otherwise.

They can choose to recall the loan if the LTV rises to more than 80%.

With the relative cheapness of SALT, and the interest rate increasing at a lower ratio than the LTV, it's actually a better return to jump to a higher LTV and pay the higher APR.

$10,000 loan, 60% LTV, 18.00% APR, 12 months

Interest: $1001.60
Total to pay back: $11,001.60 / $27.50 = 400.06 SALT
+ 1 SALT membership fee + 0.5 SALT transfer = 401.56 SALT
x $13.60 on Bittrex = $5461.22 total cost

$4538.78 gain in 12 months for locking up just 1.17 BTC, or a 27.2% return on idle BTC.

-----

About the same when you jump to the next membership level and max out.

$100,000 loan, 60% LTV, 18.00% APR, 12 months

Interest: $10,015.99
Total to pay back: $110,015.99 / $27.50 = 4000.58 SALT
+ 10 SALT membership fee + 0.5 SALT transfer fee = 4011.08 SALT
x $13.60 on Bittrex = $54,550.69

$45,449.31 gain in 12 months for locking up 11.7 BTC, or a 27.3% return on idle BTC

-----

Unfortunately I can't really take advantage with my 0.013 BTC :lol:

Reddit: Why arbitrage will still work, maybe even better. (Lirsrof)

You get a loan for $1k, or any amount in multiples. You immediately take the distributed amount and buy as many salt as needed to make the monthly payments. Right now that would be 40 SALT, counting 10% interest, at a cost of approximately $600. Pocket the other $400 or spend it or do what you want.

No matter what the BTC does you will have your SALT to make the payment. Theoretically SALT will not ever lose its value or go down. But, it may and likely will rise. Say it goes to $30 or even up to $50 or $100 during the course of your loan. You now have $400 in free cash plus bonus leftover SALT that has a pretty good value.

It isn't an overnight boom, except for the $400, that is immediate cash in you pocket. Yes you have to lock up about $16,670, but that is still yours gaining value as BTC rises. Which makes you become a hodler. Then as SALT retail rises you can unload some if you want for immediate cash or trade.

This is actually a pretty good win for everyone but the day trader.

SALT has got to be the safest bet in crypto. Other coins may have better performance, but at current prices, SALT is an easy winner.

You buy their tokens at $12-$14 on an exchange, take out a loan, collateralize it with some BTC/LTC/ETH/XRL/DASH, and repay it with your SALT tokens, which SALT will accept at a face value of $27.50.

So simple a caveman could do it.

01) the federal Consumer Credit Protection Act,
02) the Truth-in-Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act,
03) the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act,
04) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act,
05) the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act,
06) the Military Lending Act,
07) the Bank Secrecy Act,
08) the USA Patriot Act,
09) the Electronic Fund Transfer Act,
10) the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN)
11) other federal and state laws governing privacy, data security and prohibiting unfair or deceptive business practices.
