    Gate.io Upgrades Margin Trading and Lending/Borrowing System to Enhance Interest Settlement

    Creation Time:2019-10-23 07:48:10 UTCRead:78232

    To facilitate more precise interest settlement and to increase the liquidity of margin lending and borrowing, Gate.io upgraded the interest settlement that supports hourly settled interests, decreasing the trading cost of the borrowers on July 3, 2019. Earlier, the interests generated from Gate.io Margin Trading and Lending/Borrowing were settled daily.
    However, some users suggested that the shorter borrowing period resulted in re-queuing for the lenders, which might undercut the motivation for lenders to offer their assets for lending. This could also affect the cost of the borrowers.
    Therefore, to balance both parties’ interests, Gate.io will upgrade the Margin Trading and Lending/Borrowing on UTC 10:00, October 23. After the upgrade, the interest will be settled every 4 hours. If the borrowing/lending period is less than 4 hours, the interest will be calculated for 4 hours and if the period crosses 4 hours, subsequent interest will be calculated hourly, providing a fairer lending environment, lowering the borrowing cost, and increasing the liquidity of the loans.
    Gate.io Lending and Borrowing markets provide users with a platform to borrow or lend from each other. It does not provide direct funds to the users.
    Currently, there is a huge demand for several crypto currencies. As a result, the annual interest rates of USDT and others have soared from 20% to 40%. When the market witnesses such huge volatilities, the interest rates could reach 72%. Hence, if you would like to earn a stable profit, you can place a lending order through the following markets.
