Buying A Condo With Abracadabra

Lending platforms like these aren’t new, but where it gets really interesting is the type of collaterals Abracadabra is able to accommodate.

By building on top of existing Defi platforms including Curve.Finance and Convex.Finance, Abracadabra is able to allow users to collateralize yielding assets.

“What can you buy with it?” someone will ask, at which point the other person will shrug back “JPEGs on the internet?”

The truth is, you can use crypto to buy anything you want in the material world. You can even enjoy the same tax perks used by the wealthy when they buy things, b...

A Universal Strategy

Now, if you’re not in the market for something as “big” as real estate, you might be wondering: “this sounds cool, but how does it apply to me?” 

Well, the point is that this same process and strategy works for practically any significant purchase you might make. Now, you can buy ...

Abracadabra makes it easy to set the exact LTV you want, and even take on additional leverage. (risky!)

Now, a 90% loan to value ratio would be very risky, as the platform will automatically liquidate your position if the price drops more than 10% – effectively closing out the loan and lea...

Well, Curve.Finance has the perfect product for you. Tricrypto2 is a yield-generating position that maintains equal exposure to BTC, ETH, and the stablecoin USDT. That means if Bitcoin and Ethereum each fall by 30%, the Tricrypto2 position will only be down 20%, and vice versa. It gives investors...

The Math Behind a Profitable DeFi Loan

First off, Abracadabra charges a 0.5% borrow fee up-front that adds $3600 to my outstanding loan balance.

The 0.5% borrow fee is the same for every collateral type on Abracadabra, while the other parameters vary depending on the collateral pledged.

The interest rate on the loan is f...

But that’s not even the best part. The collateral I put up for the loan (all loans in DeFi are overcollateralized – more on that later), still generates yield while I’m borrowing against it. 

You heard that right. I’m being paid to take out the loan, and my collateral is currently...

Wealthy people have been borrowing against their assets – deferring taxes and remaining invested – for generations through accounts and personal brokers at the likes of JP Morgan or Goldman Sachs. Now, anyone can do it, and in a fraction of the time. That’s the real magic behind DeFi.

So, the yield on my collateral pays for the interest on the loan, HOA fees, and property taxes with an additional $11k/month left over*, which I can use to start paying down the loan principal.

It gets better. As I pay down the loan principal, the 3.5% interest charge starts to go down (as...

Unrelated to the loan but still relevant, my HOA fees are $860 per month and property taxes come out to around $1000 per month.

So, my total carrying cost of the loan + home expenses are  $3970/month

Meanwhile, the yield on my collateral of $1.2M in Tricrypto2 (necessary fo...

The danger of early hype in a startup

The danger of early hype in a startup

Building a startup is like building the plane after it’s taken off. For consumer networks it's vital the plane is working before the hype, because cracks can be fatal: for example Meerkat & Houseparty over-reliance on notification led to their downfall once millions joined.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
