Announcing the first custodied crypto loans outside of the US, providing simplified account management, a user-friendly experience and transparency to retail and corporate clients worldwide

Here at Ledn, we’re excited to announce our new Custodied Loan offering, available to all of our clients around the globe. Custodied Loans are specifically designed to bring peace of mind to customers by ensuring their collateral is held in custody with qualified custodians or banks.  

After the events of 2022, Ledn committed to providing both transparency and risk mitigation with all of our products.  Offering Custodied Loans is an extension of this philosophy. Now, Ledn clients can choose between our Standard loans, which rehypothecates loan collateral in order to  lower interest rates for clients, and our new Custodied loans. When a customer chooses our Custodied offering, they can rest easy knowing that the loan collateral is only being posted to an institutional USD funding partner, typically a bank or credit fund, and cannot be further rehypothecated to generate interest. Custodied Loans are ring-fenced from the credit risks associated with rehypothecation activities related to Standard Loans and Ledn Growth accounts.

Offering products that reduce credit risk, while also giving them the choice in how their digital asset collateral is used, is a core part of what we do. Now, all of our customers can choose either our Standard Loan or our new Custodied Loan, which currently come with an APR of 12.4% and 14.9%*, respectively. The latter marks a significant milestone both for Ledn and the crypto ecosystem as a whole, since it’s the first custodied loan to be made available to retail and corporate clients outside of the United States. Unlike other loans requiring a multi-signature wallet to access, Ledn offers simplified account management, delivering a more user-friendly experience while maintaining the utmost security assurance. 

As Adam Reeds, our co-founder and Chief Executive Officer said,

“The introduction of Custodied Loans demonstrates our commitment to providing transparent, simple, and client-focused lending solutions. By offering a choice between Custodied and Standard loans, we empower our clients to select the loan type that aligns with their preferences regarding collateral management and interest rates.”
