ELI5 SALT Cryptocurrency

SALT cryptocurrency is not mineable. It is a simple application that quickly delivers approval. The cash that is loaned will get deposited in the designated bank account right away and even no effort on the part of the user.

The process of loaning is consists of four steps:

  1. Loan creation. The borrow will set up a membership account and then forward his collateral to SALT Oracle Wallet which is a wallet that is a multi-signature blockchain that functions as a repository for the collaterals and at the same time, the lending terms are automatically managed.
  2. Once approved, the loan funds will be transferred to the bank account of the borrower.
  3. Loan repayment. The borrower will make timely and periodic payments to the lender.
  4. Loan completion. The borrower will have his collateral returned upon the payment of his loan.

Cryptocurrency assets are the only used as collateral by the recipient for the loans. A borrower has the choice to pay off his loans early so he will not be subjected to a prepayment penalty.
