Merchant System & Exchange
Multi-asset trading platform complete with institutional grade trading features.
Lendo is a blockchain-based platform that enables regulated lenders to provide loans secured by crypto assets as collateral that are stored in Lendo’s high security Crypto Vault.
Lendo will expand the personal loans market whilst also offering members of the Lendo community network a range of additional services, such as a crypto wallet, a credit card and a crypto trading exchange, leading to a complete cryptobanking ecosystem.
Lendo has ‘first mover’ advantage in the emerging sector that links Fintech with banking and financial services. It provides loan companies with the technology and expertise needed to capitalise on the many advantages of lending against cryptocurrency as secure collateral.
It will enable conventional lenders to build a new client base of crypto asset owners, not just in the UK, but also internationally and empower them to confidently move forward into the digital future.
Lendo only accepts fully licensed lending companies with a strong track record into its network.
UK lenders are regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) who control and strictly regulate the entire financial services industry, including the consumer credit market.
The UK is generally recognised as being one of the world’s safest and most transparent financial markets. This ensures the highest levels of consumer protection for borrowers and will form the contractual foundations for our global rollout of the platform.
Loan applications will be approved much faster than with conventional lending. Lendo members will be able to access the funds immediately the loan is approved, simply by using their Lendo debit card at any ATM.
All transactions, expenditure and repayments will be visible on the private and easy-to-use personal dashboard – in real time!
Lendo’s Crypto Vault, is being developed with ultra high-security proprietary software, guaranteeing that all stored funds are safeguarded.
Each member’s personal dashboard will display their crypto assets as collateral in the Vault’s offline ‘cold storage’, which is an added layer of security that removes risk of theft or fraud.
A leading insurance company will insure all crypto assets stored in the Vault.
