As FinTech platform YouHodler expands its services to clients, users are unlocking new, creative ways to take advantage of the crypto market. Take our crypto-backed loans for example. With this method, combined with YouHodler’s 90% LTV, a user can buy BTC for just 10% of its value. Here’s how it works in three simple steps.

How to buy BTC for 10% of it's value on YouHodler

With YouHolder’s recently introduced feature, user’s can buy over 50+ cryptocurrencies on the platform with fiat (USD and EUR with a credit card or bank wire). Users can get large discounts on crypto purchases. For this specific example, let’s see how someone can buy BTC for just 10% of its value using the following three-step method on YouHodler:

For this example, let’s say 1 BTC = $8000

Step 1: Use $8000 in cash to buy 1 BTC on YouHodler (Note: This is temporary capital that will be repaid in about 15 minutes). Alternatively, you could borrow the $8,000 from your traditional business funds to use in this scenario.

Step 2: Use this 1 BTC as collateral on YouHodler. With 90% LTV, you get 90% of $8,000 sent to you in cash or USDT. Use this to pay back the $8000 to wherever you borrowed the original capital from.

Step 3. You now have 1 BTC sitting in collateral that you only paid 10% for ($800). Now, simply wait for the market to rise again before repaying the loan and getting your 1 BTC. You are only responsible for paying back the 1 BTC at its value at the time of the loan. So if it rises to $9,000, $10,000 or beyond, you keep all additional profits.

Note: This can be a risky strategy if the market takes a rapid price drop.
