Together, you and we may be collectively referred to as “Parties.”
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
By conducting any trading activity, you agree that the terms and conditions contained in these Trading Terms will govern such activity, as modified from time to time. We reserve the right to update these Borrowing Terms at any time, and may notify you of such changes via the Website or by email at the address specified on your account application for your Quantia Borrowing Account, but we have no obligation to notify you of every update.
- Quantia will grant you a Crypto Credit in Digital Assets, if you provide the required Digital Assets as collateral, by transferring them into the Quantia Borrowing Account, or by using ones available thereinto (“Collateral”). All such Digital Assets are indicated on the Quantia Platform and in the Quantia Account and are subject to revision from time to time.
- The value of the credit shall be calculated by the loan-to-value-ratio, as indicated on the Quantia Platform and subject to revision from time to time, (“LTV”), against the value of the Collateral at the time of granting. The value of the Collateral shall be dynamically calculated by Quantia in accordance with its applicable policy at the moment, on the basis of margin percentages applied to the market value of the Collateral, according to an exchange ratio equivalent to the volume weighted average price of the relevant Digital Assets, across leading cryptocurrency exchanges.
- You shall at all times maintain the necessary Collateral to keep the margin above 120%.
- Unless prohibited by any Applicable Law, by virtue of this Agreement Quantia acquires the ownership title and all attendant rights of ownership of the Collateral while the credit is outstanding, and can dispose of this Collateral in any manner at its sole and absolute discretion. Otherwise, you understand and agree that we can convert, pledge, re-pledge, hypothecate, rehypothecate, sell, lend, or otherwise transfer, dispose of or use any amount of such Collateral, separately or together with other property, and for any period of time, and without retaining in our possession and/or control for delivery a like amount thereof or any other assets, at our sole and absolute discretion. Any such action will be performed in our name only and you will have no benefits and liabilities from it.
- A compound annual Interest shall commence accruing as of the start date of the credit (“Start Date”), at the rate determined at the time the credit is granted and indicated in the Quantia Account and on the Quantia Platform. The Interest shall be subject to revision from time to time, at our sole and absolute discretion.
- The Interest shall be calculated on a daily basis, at UTC 00:00 on each calendar day, on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a 360-day year.
- No periodic repayment of the Interest shall be due. Any Interest accrued shall be indicated in the Quantia Account.
Margin Calls & Liquidation
- If the margin drops below certain thresholds, as indicated on the Quantia Platform, you shall, at our request, provide additional Collateral and/or make the required repayments to rebalance the Borrowing Account. In addition, in case you have enabled the available option(s) in your Quantia Account, the relevant amount and type of Digital Assets will be automatically transferred from the Interest Account to the Borrowing Account of your Quantia Account to serve as additional Collateral, according to the procedure described on the Quantia Platform.
- If the margin drops below the minimum permitted threshold, as indicated on the Quantia Platform, Quanatia shall liquidate the necessary amount of Collateral to rebalance your Borrowing Account, after having devoted significant efforts to notify you thereof in advance, if and to the extent possible under the prevailing market conditions.
- You hereby acknowledge and agree that due to the volatile nature of the Digital Assets market, it may not be technically possible for Quantia to notify you prior to the relevant liquidation, and that you are solely responsible for monitoring the prevailing market conditions at any given time and maintaining your LTV in full accordance with these General Terms.
- The credit shall be matured in a 6-month term starting from the Start Date (“Maturity Date”).
- The term of the credit shall be automatically extended for another 6-month term. The number of extensions under the preceding sentence shall be unlimited.
Repayment and Withdrawal
- The credit shall be repaid on the Maturity Date unless its term has been automatically extended.
- You may repay at any time prior to the Maturity Date and any amount: (i) by transferring into the Quantia Account the same Digital Assets as the Quantia crypto credit granted, or other Digital Assets acceptable to Quantia; (ii) with the Collateral; or (iii) by combination of (i) and (ii). Certain rules may apply to repayments from time to time, as indicated on the Quantia Platform.
- All repayments shall be allocated first to the fees (if any), then to the Interest and last to the principal of the Quantia credit.
- Once the credit has been repaid in full, all remaining Collateral shall be transferred back to the Client’s Interest Account.
