Hey! If there were ever crypto emergencies, this would be a tale of one of them: (I mean, okay, so there are crypto emergencies… Take the confido announcement that plunged it to literally less than $0.01.)

So, I had bought XVG at B0.00001044, but sold it a few minutes ago for B0.00000913. Then I FOMO’d into SALT at B0.00088599. And this new release by SALT is why. https://blog.saltlending.com/salt-loans-are-live-cf0f7c8e5d69

Am I Crazy? Why So Much Faith in SALT?

I don’t want to explain what SALT coin is. But in short: SALT is a crypto loan provider. They hold your crypto in collateral (probably bitcoin will stay their only choice until stable altcoins rise) and give you loans in fiat. So it’s like a crypto pawnshop.

You pay off your loan with SALT tokens. They stated that each SALT token can be used to pay off $27 off your loan.

While SALT was never worth $27, here’s why their word becomes its value:

  1. According to their release, SALT tokens can be used to pay off the principal and the interest on any of their loans. That means if you take out a $1,000 loan with bitcoin as collateral, then you use that $1,000 to buy SALT tokens at their current price of $15.37, you could pay off your $1,000 loan with only 37.04 SALT tokens. 37.04 = only $569.26!
  2. Because of point #1, SALT will rise to $27 because people will start exploiting their loan system by buying SALT cheap and just paying off their SALT loans at a profit.

Well, there you have it! SALT is pumping insanely now. If I sold right now, I’d make up my XVG losses with a little bit of profit too!
