About SALT

SALT (which stands for Secured Automated Lending Platform) is a blockchain-backed platform for cash loans. In other words, users can hand over a crypto asset as collateral in exchange for fiat currencies.

The process for picking a loan is simple. As a member of the platform, a person is connected to other parties known as “lenders”, who will post the terms in which they’re willing to lend the money. Once selected the one with the terms that best suit your needs, the process of lending begins. The borrower deposit the crypto asset in a multi-signature smart contract, and the lender transfer the funds directly into the former’s bank account. 

The borrower then makes monthly payments on the loan and once it is repaid, his crypto assets are returned.
