ETHLend and Enigma Partner to bring Secret Contracts to Decentralized Lending – ETHLend reveals airdrop date
We are excited to announce that Enigma, an off-chain network solving scalable privacy for blockchains, and ETHLend, the first decentralized lending marketplace are working towards a partnership that will help bring data and computational privacy to decentralized lending.
Enigma is an off-chain peer-to-peer network that enables different parties to jointly store and run computations on data while keeping data completely private through the use of secret contracts. Using Enigma’s secret contracts — smart contracts that keep sensitive data encrypted at all times — credit data on ETHLend will be processed and used in a decentralized ecosystem while using the off-chain Enigma Network, bringing more trust and security for users of the ETHLend dApp.
Moreover, ETHLend lenders will be able to use Enigma | Catalyst to devise lending and collateral management strategies by using user-curated data. Catalyst is Enigma’s platform for data-driven cryptoasset trading and investment that is built on their secure cryptofinancial data marketplace. This will help expand the ETHLend lending ecosystem by allowing for better financial management of funds.
Can Kisagun, co-founder of Enigma, said:
“Helping create decentralized solutions for lending and credit is one of the strongest use cases for the Enigma privacy protocol. We’re excited to work with the dynamic ETHLend team to help them grow their revolutionary platform and together build the future of decentralized lending.”
Stani Kulechov, founder of ETHLend, said:
“Enigma’s protocol will enable private loans to add more privacy for lenders and borrowers. This would be tremendously useful in the B2B and B2C lending markets, which ETHLend is aiming to disrupt. We’re looking forward to working with Enigma’s talented team and technology to achieve our vision.”
Enigma is enabling a truly decentralized future by solving privacy and scalability for blockchains. Blockchain is a powerful technology, but today it is impractical and mostly unusable at scale — current computing capacity on blockchain is slow and expensive and data is visible to everyone. As a result most data is still stored off-chain in centralized databases, defeating the purpose of decentralization.
Based on a groundbreaking MIT thesis, Enigma solves blockchain’s scalability and privacy issues at the protocol level with a second-layer, off-chain network that uses “secret contracts”, smart contracts that allow data to be processed by nodes in the network while still being kept private. Through this innovative architecture, Enigma has created a truly decentralized solution on which powerful dApps can be built.
ETHLend is decentralized peer to peer lending application and protocol running on top of Ethereum network. On the current state of the platform, borrowers can use ERC-20 tokens as a collateral to borrow Ethereum cryptocurrency to unlock long term token investments for trading and participating in ICOs. The ETHLend team is working towards creating a global marketplace and lower interest rates globally. Within 1 month of launching our alpha version 0.2, users on ETHLend borrowed over 1 250 000 USD worth of Ethereum in the first ever decentralized lending market.
Airdrop date for Eidoo wallet users finally revealed
On November 2017, we announced a strategic partnership between Eidoo and ETHLend, along with the 15 000 000 LEND airdrop for all Eidoo wallet users including those who participated in ETHLend token sale. Since then, our channels have been flooded with questions about date, distribution and eligibility.
Today the date is finally revealed: LEND airdrop will officially start on January 19th at 12 GMT. Tokens will be distributed accordingly between the Eidoo wallet users. Airdrop might take in total weeks to be completed since Ethereum Network is currently clogged causing delayed transactions.

EthLend and Salt ICO – Blockchain Lending That Will Replace Banks
Source: David Hay
Responses to David’s video:
“David, Love your videos but you missed the mark on this one. The EthLend Dapp is live and working fine you just need MetaMask installed on your browser in order for it to work.There is no risk for the LENDER because the borrower puts up ERc20 tokens as collateral for the loan and you can only borrow 67% of the tokens value. If you default then the LENDER will keep your tokens which is worth more than the loan they funded”
“Dave. Ethlend uses collateral. I am currently a user of their platform. They are already on Alpha 2.0 and require you to download Metamask to access the program and begin lending/borrowing. They also have a protocol to track credit ratings.. For each loan that is paid back, the borrower will receive credit tokens to help repay the next loans interest and will build their online credit rating. They have implemented lending via ERC20 to ETH and have recently allowed for US dollar loans. They are also currently working to implement Bitcoin lending and a host of other FIAT currencies. I hope this helped.”
“You make the Ethereum platform sound like a risk, when it’s revolutionary. I guess it’s a matter of more “governed” SALT, and arguably more understandable and user friendly, vs. peer-to-peer “less governed” and more complicated ETHLend? You make backing LEND sound like a risk because of the “what if” scenario with how the U.S. legally accepts it. That kind of contradicts your previous videos when you say you back the crypto’s based off the technology and concept. Either way, your input is greatly appreciated!”
Over 300 ETH in Decentralized Loans Reached
Since the Alpha 0.2 release on 15 December 2017, ETHLend is proud and humble to announce that over 300 worth of Ethereum has been borrowed through our decentralized application!
Borrowers have used variety of different collaterals ranging from the pre-defined list the DAPP provides. There have been currently over 120 loans and the most popular collateral is ETHLend’s native LEND token.
The USD-pegged Ethereum loans consists of around 12% of the total loan book, and rest of the loans being pure Ethereum. Most loans are up to 30 days and fewer loans are above 30 days. The biggest loan is around 20 000 USD worth of Ethereum and other bigger loans have varied from 10-17 ETH. Due to gas costs on Ethereum, under 0.5 ETH loans are less efficient and we consider loans below 0.5 ETH more or less as testing purposes.
Lending volume provides cash flow. Upon each loan request, ETHLend collects 0.01 ETH fee from the borrower and 0.01 ETH fee from the lender when funding a loan. Therefore, even such early stage as Alpha, ETHLend is creating turnover for the project. Despite the fact that the volumes are recently accumulated and the fee structure will be change to more efficient by lowering the threshold for borrowing and making more return on bigger loans, such fee collecting is a proof-of-concept that ETHLend could grow into a fully established FinTech house soon.
The unexpected success is a great milestone not solely for ETHLend team, moreover for the whole community of decentralized applications. Developing decentralized applications is surely not the easiest path, however in the long run provides a market that is determined by the lenders and borrowers instead of banks and financial institutions.

Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Sharpe Capital, Dr. Butler, described the newly announced advisory partnership: “By joining forces with ETHLend, Sharpe Capital is able to tailor the Global Sentiment Index to an increasingly diverse audience, and help to reduce risks associated with blockchain-driven lending.
ETHLend has been available on Ethereum main network since May 2017, providing a global lending market where loan conditions are agreed between borrowers and lenders, and parties can participate on both sides. ETHLend is a transparent, borderless and decentralized market and erasing interest rate differences between countries by providing competition on a global scale. ETHLend solves key issues regarding collaterals, decentralized credit rating and exchange volatility risks with fiat pegging option.
Through partnership with Sharpe Capital, ETHLend lenders will now access to the leading source of decentralized and crowdsourced asset sentiment, allowing lenders to assess collateral risk on loan request using real-time data from the Global Sentiment Index before choosing to fund a loan — Jordan Gustave, Chief Operating Officer of ETHLend
Going beyond simple metrics of price and implied volatility, the Global Sentiment Index will let users know precisely how the market perceives an asset’s viability over timeframes from one week to one quarter. Following the Sharpe Platform launch on 11th December, ETHLend will have access to the Global Sentiment Index as it is collaboratively developed and refined during the Alpha and Beta stages of the product.

ETHLend Partners with Eidoo Wallet for Token Sale and Provides an Airdrop for All Eidoo Wallet Users
ETHLend will use EIDOO Wallet for Token Sale to Provide Additional Security
ETHLend and Eidoo are announcing a strategic partnership. The partnership will consist of the use of Eidoo’s recently announced ICO Engine, which ETHLend will use to launch the LEND token sale. Moreover, ETHLend and Eidoo are looking for long term plans with enabling ETHLend decentralized lending application to become amongst the first DApps in Eidoo’s upcoming DApp store.
The strategic partnership has enormous benefits for both ETHLend and Eidoo. ETHLend will use Eidoo wallet exclusively to perform the token sale on 25. November 2017 to provide more security for the token sale participants and enabling easy user experience to participate to the LEND token sale without the need for technical knowledge. After whitelisting to the LEND token sale, the participants simply download the easy to use Eidoo wallet, insert the token sale code provided by ETHLend and the participants are ready to participate on from 12 PM GMT on 25 November 2017.

Update received from ETHLend…
ETHLend Partners with Bloom for Credit Ratings
Since May 2017 when ETHLend deployed the first live decentralized lending application on the Ethereum main network, we have been researching several options to provide sound lending experience for lenders and borrowers to minimize default risk.
Accordingly with our roadmap, ETHLend will develop the decentralized credit rating where centralized and decentralized credit rating systems can be used to minimize credit risk and conduct KYC on lending.
Today, we are happy to announce that Bloom is partnering with us on providing the ability to use local credit institutions’ credit scores for blockchain loans and in case of defaults, these defaults can be reported back to the credit rating agencies. With Bloom, we are providing more secure lending on our reputation based lending side.
