ForTube or FOR (FOR/USDT – Trade it here) is an open-source DeFi lending protocol created to offer decentralized lending service alternatives besides traditional platforms. It is developed by The Force Protocol that aims to improve the capital efficiency of crypto market through algorithms and to allow users to deposit, withdraw, borrow and repay without the limitation of time and location. ForTube DAO now governs the protocol. In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about ForTube plus a guide on how to buy FOR tokens.
Key Features of ForTube
Users can deposit their unoccupied digital assets into smart contracts with the help of ForTube to receive loan limits and earn interest. Within the loan limit, users can lend other digital assets. Regardless matter whether it is a deposit or a loan, users no longer need to pay attention to the time frame and can withdraw or repay at any moment. Here are several essential features of ForTube:
- Borrow Tokens. When using the borrow function, the platform will take into account both the volatility of the assets put as collateral and the volatility of the assets being borrowed. Therefore, the maximum borrowing to deposit ratio of the two assets will have an impact on the borrowing amount of that asset. After borrowing, interest will be produced.
- Deposit Tokens. To obtain deposit interests, users can utilize the deposit function to send the crypto assets supported by the site to smart contracts.
- Health Index. A measurement of how well a user’s debt is doing. The more valuable the collateral is, the less likely it is to be liquidated, and the more secure it is. When the user account’s health index drops below 1, the liquidation mechanism will start working.
- Maximum Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio. The maximum Loan-to-Value ratio is an indicator of a certain collateral’s maximum borrowing limit. For instance, if a token’s maximum LTV is 60%, a deposit of $100 will only be used as collateral for a loan of $60.
