A Game-Changer for Lending Desks
Efficient, secure, and flexible — The benefits of real-time lending with Bosonic for your lending desk.
If you are a lending desk looking for a way to participate in the fast-growing digital and tokenized asset market, you might be frustrated by the lack of efficient and secure solutions. Traditional lending platforms often require you to move your assets to a third-party custodian, exposing you to counterparty risk, operational delays and high fees. Moreover, you have little control over the terms and conditions of the loans, such as interest rates, margin levels and liquidation triggers.
That's why Bosonic is a game-changer for lending desks. Bosonic is a financial ecosystem that covers trading, lending and borrowing and that removes the risks and inefficiencies common in traditional systems. With Bosonic, you can access a real-time lending marketplace for intra-day margin and credit financing while maintaining your assets in your own custodial account. You can also set your own interest rates, term and margin levels, and choose between disclosed and anonymous transacting.
How does Bosonic work? Bosonic leverages the power of blockchain technology to create a Layer-2 solution that connects custodians, exchanges and liquidity providers. Bosonic uses smart contracts to execute transactions on the blockchain, ensuring transparency, security and speed. Bosonic also uses a novel mechanism called Repo (repurchase agreement) to transfer ownership of the underlying assets in real-time, without moving them from the custodial accounts. This way, lenders can perfect their ownership of the collateral in the event of default, while borrowers can access liquidity without losing custody of their assets.
What are the benefits of Bosonic for lending desks? Here are some of the key points:
Real-time borrowing and lending order book: You can view and execute orders on a live marketplace that matches borrowers and lenders based on their preferences and availability.
Borrowers and lenders keep assets in their own account at their own custodians: You don't have to trust or rely on a third-party intermediary to hold your assets. You can use your existing custodial relationships or choose from a network of reputable custodians integrated with Bosonic.
Lenders control interest rates, initial, variation and liquidation margin levels: You can set your own parameters for each loan, depending on the risk-reward profile you are comfortable with. You can also monitor the performance of the loans and adjust the margin levels accordingly.
Disclosed and anonymous transacting: You can choose whether to reveal your identity or remain anonymous when placing or accepting orders. You can also filter orders based on the counterparty's reputation, rating or KYC status.
Real-time margining, mark-to-market and auto-liquidation of borrower positions and Reverse Repo: You can benefit from a robust risk management system that tracks the value of the collateral and the borrower's positions in real-time. If the collateral value falls below a certain threshold, Bosonic will automatically liquidate the borrower's positions and return the assets to the lender. Alternatively, if the borrower wants to exit the loan before maturity, they can use a Reverse Repo mechanism to buy back the collateral from the lender.
Interest rate payments automatically received in lender custodial accounts: You don't have to worry about collecting or sending interest payments. Bosonic will automatically transfer them to your custodial account at the end of each day or at maturity.
Asset holders can earn yield on Crypto and Fiat in a safer institutional marketplace: You can diversify your portfolio and generate income by lending your crypto or fiat assets to borrowers who need them for trading or other purposes. You can also access a variety of assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, USDC, USDT and more.
No asset movements means no issues with compelling the return of digital assets: You don't have to deal with the hassle or risk of moving your assets across different platforms or wallets. You can keep them in your own account at all times and still lend them out.
As you can see, Bosonic is a great solution for lending desks who want to tap into the digital asset market without compromising on efficiency, security or flexibility. If you are interested in learning more about Bosonic, schedule a demo today!
