Overview

Secured Automated Lending Technology (SALT), often termed as a disruptive blockchain based loan platform. It is a membership-based lending and borrowing platform that allow users to leverage their blockchain based assets to secure cash loans. Users are allowed to obtain cash loans by keeping their cryptocurrency holdings as collateral. The paradigm shift in transfer and storage of digital assets through the distributed ledger technology has enabled it to serve as a perfect form of collateral. SALT pioneered this evolutionary leap in lending in which value of borrower's assets are fully recognized and the credit history is also delinked from the process. SALT provides the flexibility to users of getting a loan with any Ad-hoc currency selection with a minimum loan term of 1 hour.
