The base interest rate in the economy – the “risk-free rate”- is set by the central banks. For example, in the U. S. we have 2%, in the Eurozone -0. 4% and Switzerland -0. 75% (yes, these are negative “risk-free rates”). Some of these drivers increase interest, others decrease interest. Referenced articles calculated what should be the base interest rate for the fiat economy and the crypto economy. NB – the interest which we calculated, does not match with the base interest rate in our current central banks driven economy.

I. e. instead of using only variable interest rate, there should be as well 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, and longer maturity interest rates. The result is a maturity mismatch, which is 99% of cases not an issue, but it can be a problem if everyone and their grandma are running to the same exit-door at the same time. If this situation happens, the lender will be unable to withdraw his funds.
Why, it even has access to Ugandan shillings in its currencies, which no other app provides. I’m very pleased with it and can see myself using this app for years to come. I liked it a lot and thought that it would be a good replacement for Quicken 2016. However, many people pointed out that their emails have not been answered for quite some time. I’m afraid that the company goes under after I purchase the app. Some companies have customer retention departments that can lower your rates to retain your business. Review all bank charges for accounts and debit cards; determine if they can be reduced or eliminated.
Compound Finance users are lending/borrowing money at short maturity and are practically rolling over day by day into the new variable interest rate. In traditional fixed income, one would take a 90 days loan and fix the interest rate based on the yield curve. Borrowers and lenders would mitigate their interest rate risk this way. We continue with the Compound Finance review and we look at the limitations of the Compound business model in the context of the traditional fixed income market. Credit risk is the risk that the borrower will be late with the payments or will not pay at all.
Crypto credit score– different borrowers have different credit qualities. Every loan originator prefers good credit risks as opposed to bad credit risks. Good credit risks should have fewer collateral requirements and vice versa. Good credit risks have to pay less interest and vice versa. Yield curve – The “invisible hand of the market” would set the interest rates for different maturities and credit risks. The interest rates would be an equilibrium of credit supply and credit demand, they would be driven by the market only. The yield curve would show the interest rate for different maturities.
If loans are secured, then the collateral ownership will move over to the lender. If loans are certainly not secured, then the lender will take the borrower into court or will sell the non-performing loan to the loan liquidators. If the loans are structured as bonds, then we are creating transferable and tradeable debt instruments. The aggregate of all these bonds creates a global bond market with a size of 100 trillion USD.
