We have made the difficult decision to suspend all withdrawals, trading, and deposits on the Vauld platform with immediate effect. We believe that this will help to facilitate our exploration of the suitability of potential restructuring options, together with our financial and legal advisors. We seek the understanding of customers of the Vauld platform that we will not be in a position to process any new or further requests or instructions in this regard.

In regards to this, new loans cannot be created, however you can continue to access existing loans, add collateral to them in case of margin calls and close them by using your collateral or repaying the loan amount.

Please refer to this article for more details:

With Vauld you can take a low-interest loan against your existing crypto assets up to a Loan-To-Value (LTV) of 66.7%. The LTV is the ratio of the value of the loan to the value of the collateral. For example, a loan of $2000 will need collateral of approximately $3000 since $2000 is 66.67% of $3000.

Another way of thinking of this is the collateralization ratio, which is the ratio of the value of the collateral to the value of the loan. Vauld offers loans at a collateralization ratio of 150%. This means that the value of the collateral has to be 150% that of the value of the loan at the time of disbursal. For example, collateral worth $1500 dollars will facilitate a $1000 loan.

Loan-to-value or LTV represents the same concept as collateralization ratio, just in the inverse manner. In the first example, $3000 is 150% of $2000 thus that loan can be facilitated since it has a collateralization ratio of a 150%.

The minimum loan amount is $1000. We give loans at a collateralization ratio of above 150% and liquidate the collateral if the ratio reaches 110%.

Before we get into how to actually open and close a loan here are a few points of note regarding loans on Vauld:

  2. You can pay back the loan at any time and in any number of installments

  3. You can pay back the loan either in the token used as collateral or in the token of the principal of the loan

In the "Collateral Amount" field, once you select the desired token to collateralize, the amount will be automatically filled in at 199% collateralization ratio which can be changed as per your wish by changing the amount in the "Collateral Amount" field. If you feel like your loan contains volatile tokens we recommend over collateralizing to ensure that the loan does not get liquidated.

Click on [Take loan] and your request will be approved instantly. You will also find the Interest rate below the collateralization ratio.

4) If you select [Close loan using collateral], you will be shown the amount that will be deducted and the amount that will be refunded to your wallet. Once you click on confirm the loan will be immediately closed and the extra amount from the collateral would be refunded to you.
