7. Application for a Digital Assets Loan: After logging into your account, you can select the type and amount of tokens as needed and confirm the type of tokens that you are willing to pledge on the page of OTC pledged digital assets loans. After you choose a token type, the system will automatically calculate the amount of digital assets that you need to pledge (please make sure that your exchange account has sufficient amounts to pledge). Before clicking “Borrow Now”, select the number of days of pledge (the number of days of pledge is the number of days of digital assets loan: if you select a 30-day loan which can be borrowed and repaid at any time, you can repay the loan at any time). After you click “Borrow Now”, the system will automatically transfer the corresponding amount of digital assets in the selected token type that you select to pledge from your exchange account to your pledged digital assets loan account.
8. Interest refers to the fees paid to the Platform when you use the pledged digital assets loan service provided by the Platform. The fees are calculated on an hourly basis. The front-end product page of the Platform will display the fees on a daily basis (daily fee rate) and on a yearly basis (annual fee rate) respectively. The interest shall be calculated according to the digital assets loan fee rate and the loan term shown on the digital assets loan page; the daily fee rate shall be based on a 24-hour basis. The loan term shall begin when a digital assets loan is transferred to your exchange account, and the interest is calculated on an hourly basis; a period less than 1 hour shall be deemed as 1 hour. For products without a fixed term, you can make repayment at any time and pay the interest according to the actual loan term.
9. Pledge Payment Adjustment. When the LTV of a single order reaches margin call LTV, the system will send an additional pledge payment request to the User’s contact information, reminding the User to increase the pledge payment to reduce the risk of forced liquidation. After receiving the information, the User can choose to increase the pledge payment by clicking “Adjust Pledge Payment” on the product page. When the LTV of a single order is lower than the covering margin call LTV, the User can choose to reduce the pledge payment by clicking “Adjust Pledge Payment” on the product page.
10. Use of Digital Assets Loan. The digital assets loan has been issued by the Platform into your exchange account. You may use it for whatever purpose you decide, for example for spot, leverage and contract transactions, or you may withdraw it from the Platform.
11. Repayment. You can click “Repay” to pay off a loan order and its interest according to the instructions on the front page of the product. Upon repayment, the interest shall be paid first. If there is any surplus, the loan principal will be paid off. If the loan principal is not fully paid off, the remaining part of the loan shall remain valid until its maturity in accordance with the original conditions of the order.
12. Overdue Loan. For a pledged loan order in which the principal has not been repaid on time, the Platform will give a 7-day (7*24 hours) grace period (from the expiration of the loan order term).

If no repayment is made within the grace period, the Platform shall have the right to liquidate the pledge payment of the order to pay off the principal and the interest of the digital assets loan. During the grace period, you shall bear the risk of forced liquidation of your pledge payment when forced liquidation is triggered.

Airdrop rewards will be granted to holders of a relevant digital asset based on a snapshot of the holders of said digital asset at a certain time (the “Snapshot”). In the event that a User has borrowed the relevant digital asset, the Platform will notify the User (including but not limited to via email or SMS) to return the relevant borrowed digital assets prior to the Snapshot.
15. Platform Rights. If the User does not return the relevant borrowed digital assets prior to the Snapshot, the User agrees and acknowledges that he/she will be liable to the Platform for the Borrowed Airdrop Reward (regardless of whether the User had received the Borrowed Airdrop Reward) and that the Platform has the right to transfer the Borrowed Airdrop Reward from the User’s account to the Platform’s proprietary wallets. Until the Platform has carried out such transfer, it may, at its sole discretion, restrict the User from withdrawing his/her digital assets from the Platform.
16. Forced Liquidation. When the LTV of a single digital assets loan order reaches the LTV of liquidation, the Platform will dispose the pledge payment of that order to pay off the digital assets loan and unpaid interest, but the Platform cannot make sure the dispose price is the best price, and you agree and unconditionally accept the final dispose results. When the System cannot perform forced liquidation due to drastic price fluctuations or the digital assets loan and related fees cannot be paid off after forced liquidation or other losses are caused to the Platform, the Platform shall have the right to continue to claim compensation from you or to transfer the corresponding assets in your exchange account to pay off the outstanding loan principal and interest or to compensate for other losses of the Platform.
17. The Platform will manage the total market value of pledged digital assets loans and the market value of a single token type. When the accumulative total amount of pledged digital assets loans on the Platform reaches the amount of pledged digital assets loans of a single token type or the maximum total amount of digital assets loans set by the Platform, the system will automatically stop the digital assets loan business of a single token type or the pledged digital assets loan business until the market value or the total market value of pledged digital assets loans of a single token type is lower than the amount of pledged digital assets loans of a single token type or the maximum total amount of digital assets loans.
18. Right of Set-off. The Platform shall have the right to set-off any amounts owing to it by a User, including and not limited to paragraph 15 (Platform Rights), from the User’s exchange account and sub-accounts. In the event that the User owes the Platform a particular digital token which the User does not have in his/her exchange account and sub-accounts, the Platform shall have the right to set-off such equivalent amount of a different digital token (such amount based on the exchange rates on https://coinmarketcap.com/ at the time of set-off) from the User’s exchange account and/or sub-accounts.
19. When using the Service, the User shall comply with applicable laws and regulations and the provisions of this Agreement and the User Agreement (including versions as updated by the Platform from time to time).
20. For risk control purposes, the Platform shall have the right to unilaterally suspend or terminate OTC pledged digital assets loan business and related services at any time if necessary.
21. Any contradiction between the terms of this Agreement and any other agreement or terms and conditions the User may have entered into pursuant to the User’s use of the Platform and its services, shall be resolved at the Platform’s sole discretion.
