Verdict: "Nexo Borrow" allows you to use your assets as collateral and take out automated instant loans, without credit checks and with a loan to value ratio (LTV) of up to 50% against your portfolio; for a maximum loan of up to $2,000,000. For example, users can deposit $10,000 in BTC for a $5,000 loan in Fiat/stablecoins, with APR ranging from 5.9 - 11.9%. Learn more about these loyalty levels below.

Whilst 50% LTV is the only option, Nexo features a number of staking rewards and loyalty level incentives. If the value of your assets goes down to a point where your LTV is 83.3%, Nexo will start liquidating small amounts of your portfolio to pay loan repayments. This always will occur at this figure, regardless of loyalty level.

Firstly, the Nexo Base level is the lowest of the Nexo Loyalty Levels, which are staking levels (in this case, a no staking level) that require you to hold a percentage of NEXO tokens in your portfolio in order to get preferential loan rates and savings rates. With the Nexo Base Level, you don't have to stake any NEXO tokens. However, you will pay the highest interest rates of 11.9% APR.

Nexo Silver is the second loyalty level, requiring you to hold 1-5% of your portfolio in NEXO tokens in order to get the loan rate of 10.9% APR. There are no minimum or maximum loan periods for all levels, and you can borrow for as long or as short as you like. Nexo Gold level is the second-highest account, requiring users to hold 5 - 10% of their portfolio in NEXO tokens in order to get the loan rate of 8.9% APR. Outside of reduced APR, other benefits remain the same as previous levels.

Lastly, Nexo Platinum is the highest level savings account that requires you to hold at least 10% of your portfolio staked in NEXO tokens. This is a lot unless you are bullish on NEXO, but the rates are some of the best on the market in 2021. With Nexo Platinum, you can use select cryptocurrencies as collateral and borrow up to 50% LTV, without credit checks, for an unlimited period, at just 5.9% APR.

We believe that whilst rates for Gold and Platinum levels are highly competitive, there is little to differentiate them outside of APR. Margin call rates remain the same at 83.3%, with no additional LTV options unlike some competitors. However, having a variable rate of 1-10% of user portfolio makes this platform much more appealing and achievable for stakers of varying budgets.
