BENQI is a decentralized non-custodial liquidity market protocol built on the high-speed Avalanche smart contract network. The protocol allows users to lend, borrow, or earn interest using their digital assets.
Send and receive interest: Users deposit tokens into the BenQi platform and then receive interest.
Get a loan
Before borrowing, users are required to deposit any property as collateral.
Then, go to the “Borrow” section and click “Borrow” to borrow the property.
Set the desired amount to be borrowed based on the user’s available deposit to be used as collateral for the loan.
Choose a “stable” or “variable” rate and confirm your transaction. Rates may be changed at a later time.
Liquidation occurs when a borrower’s “Health Factor” falls below 1 because the value of their collateral does not include the correct amount of their loan/loaned value.
This happens when the collateral decreases in value or when the borrowed debt increases in value relative to the collateral.
The ratio of collateral to loan value is shown in the health factor. In a liquidation, up to 50% of a borrower’s debt is repaid, and that value plus a liquidation fee is taken from pre-existing collateral.
The protocol will begin with centralized governance from the founding team, with the final decentralization of the protocol to be officially reconciled during implementation.
QI tokens will be required to first put forward, then vote on proposals (BenQi Improvement Proposals) that will affect the key [economic, security and development] parameters of the protocol:
Interest model. The addition of assets meets the risk requirements of the protocol.
The collateral and liquidation parameters.
