Standard Loan Types (yes, of course these are negotiable):Traditional 30D BTC Loan:
*112% principal due, 30 day duration, all paid back at once on due date (or using the early payment formula listed below).Traditional 14D BTC Loan:
*105% principal due, 14 day duration, all paid back at once on due date (or using the early payment formula listed below).Multiple Payment Loan:
*134% principal due if 90D, 120% principal due if 60D, 109% principal due if 30D, 104% principal due if 14D. If 90D loan, pay back 10% principal every 9 days until final payment, when 44% principal is due (interest + final payment on principal). If 60D loan, pay back 10% every 6 days until final payment, when 30% principal is due (interest + final payment on principal). If 30D, pay back 20% principal every 6 days until final payment, when 19% principal is due (interest + final payment on principal). If 14D, pay back 50% every 7 days until final payment, when 14% principal is due (interest + final payment on principal).PPUSD/DwollaUSD Loans**UNAVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**:
*Receive loan in PPUSD or DwollaUSD. At time loan is given, I'll grab the exchange rate. Amount loaned divided by USD/BTC MtGox exchange rate = BTC due (excluding negotiated interest). Loans in PPUSD will take 3-5 days to arrive in your account from the time I issue it. DwollaUSD Loans will take up to 7 days, assuming there aren't more problems. This loan can be any of the three types listed above. The loan duration starts when the money is in your account, not when I issue the transfer.Additional terms for loans [Important stuff is bolded, very important stuff is in red]:*"Sub-Leasing Prohibition" - During the term of the loan, you agree not to lend Bitcoins to anyone for any reason. If I have evidence you are doing so, it will be noted you failed to uphold the terms of your loan. This only partially applies to miners. For miners, I want you to show me where you mine, with stats I can verify (a pool which lists mining rates publicly would be great). If you can, I'm willing to loan you what you mine every day per day-length of the duration of the loan and not hold you to the "no-subleasing" rule. For instance, if you mine 5BTC/day and want a 30D loan, multiply daily income by duration in days for max loan amount, which'd be 150BTC -- that's how much I'd be willing to loan you without the sub-leasing prohibition. Another example -- if you mine 1BTC/day and want a 14D loan, the max I'd loan you without prohibiting sub-leasing is 14BTC.
(applies to all loans made on or after 1/18/12)*"Form of Repayment" - Loans are to be repaid in Bitcoin unless otherwise specified. I'll accept either a direct payment of BTC to 1LgJfyNohgkyzogxksENpNTy1vafZP9T6 or a MtGox coupon via PM.
(applies to all loans made on or after 1/18/12)
*"Late fees" - There are none. It'll be noted you failed to uphold the terms of the loan, but I have no interest in annoying/burdening people I have loans out to. If you'd like to donate to me for the problems your late payment causes me, well - that'd be appreciated.
(applies to all loans, no matter date lent)
*"Early Payment" - For each day you pay early (using US Eastern time), deduct .15 percentage points from the negotiated MPR you're expected to pay. This only applies on the day you pay in full. For instance, if you have a 30D 100BTC loan @ 10% MPR due 1/30/12, but want to pay in full on 1/20/12, you would be expected to pay 1.5 [.15*10] percentage points less for MPR. So, you'd effectively be paying 8.5% MPR instead of the negotiated 10% MPR because you paid 10 days early, resulting in 108.5BTC due instead of 110BTC. Assuming you've done your math correctly, there's no reason to clear it with me before sending your payment. If/when the website goes up, this should be a much more clear-cut process.
(applies to all loans, no matter date lent)*"Extra Req's for Large Loans" - Loans of more than 150BTC require ID, a promissory note notarized and sent to my address (prior to the loan being made), a utilities bill, at least one reference I can call, and physical collateral at least roughly equal to the loan amount made against your loan. I also require a picture of you with the collateral you're using with a physical timestamp in the picture. You MUST be a US resident to apply for a loan in an amount greater than 150BTC. Extremely reputable forum members (maybe 20 people fall into this category) and those I've dealt with before with a similarly large quantity of coins are not subject to this rule.
(applies to all loans made on or after 1/22/12)Requirements of lendee:
Must be reputable on this forum. If you're listed for non-payment here
, you will be denied. Prefer at least 5 transactions with other forum users in a combined amount equal or greater than 3x the loan you're requesting. A reasonable story (with DETAILS!) is much preferred. I want to know why you can't afford what you want now, what you want the money for, and how you plan on repaying the loan. I prefer lendees I've already done business with.Terms for depositing in BDK (dividend here refers to % principal of deposit -- for instance, 1% dividend on 100BTC deposit is 1BTC.):
*BDK holds the right to deny deposit requests. All deposits must be cleared with Kluge (PM me!) prior to a transfer to BDK's deposition account being considered a deposit and being accountable to terms for a deposit. Deposits which are not cleared by Kluge will be returned to the originating address within 48h.
*Deposits are to be in CD-form, meaning you agree to keep your BTC in BDK for x amount of time to receive dividend payments.
*CDs are transferable, so long as you notify me (buyer must notify me, too). Dividends will be paid to the owner of the CD. If you are considering purchasing an "after-market" CD, please PM me first, or consult the Google spreadsheet at the top of this post for details of the CD you're considering.
*Deposits can be withdrawn at any time, but if prior to the end of the CD terms, you receive no interest. Please allow me up to 48h to process an early withdrawal.
*CDs can be auto-renewed with dividends re-invested, auto-renewed with dividends paid to your BTC address, or paid out in full upon completion of CD duration. The MPR does not change if you choose to auto-renew. That is to say, if you take out a 30D loan and choose to auto-renew your CD at the end of each 30D cycle, you will be paid the 30D rate, not the 60D rate. However, unlike if you had requested a 60D CD, if you choose to auto-renew a 30D CD, you will be paid dividends every 30D (for a 60D CD, you would not be paid dividends until the end of the 60D cycle, assuming you do not initiate a withdrawal until the 60D cycle completes).
*If you do not
want your username listed in the public info spreadsheet I have near the top of this post, you must request it. It's there both to ensure transparency of BDK and, were you to want to sell your CD to someone else, give buyers a quick & easy way to ensure you actually hold the CD. (This does not apply to lendees. All lendees will have their username and basic loan information noted publicly - no exceptions.)
*CDs cannot exceed an amount greater than 200BTC, and one person is allowed to take out a CD only once per 7 days (this is to stagger CD due dates and prevent me from running into a potentially-disastrous liquidity problem if I can't secure an inter-bank loan). Minimum CD value is 10BTC. BDK Self-regulation Programs
*"IBB Donation" - 3% of loan profits will go directly to senbonzakura to fund the IBB. The IBB offers no-fee, interest-free loans in small amounts. (edit on 1/23/12 - "loan profits" do not include income from equity sales or dividends. "loan profits" will be calculated and donated at the beginning of each month. Information on loan profits & amount donated is available for view on the Google Spreadsheet at the top of this post.)
*"BTC100 Donation" - An initial 5BTC + 2% monthly loan profits (starting February) will be donated to BTC100
to encourage charities to adopt Bitcoin as acceptable payment.
*"BTC Equities Program" - At any time, values in safe BTC equities are to make up at least 20% of total securities. This rule is in effect to ensure loans are not just going toward gamblers & folks looking for a hedge, but also to folks doing something productive with the BTC. This program is also intended to allay fears of BDK bankruptcy for depositors.
(goes into effect on 2/1/12)
*"IBB No-Interest Loan Matching Program" - If you have a loan the IBB agrees to cover, BDK will match it with no interest charged, up to 5BTC for up to 21D. Gratuities appreciated but not required.
(goes into effect on 2/1/12)
*"Loan Diversification Requirement" - At any time, no loan is to make up more than 10% of total securities' value.
(goes into effect on 3/1/12) (current largest single loan: ~10.5% total)
*"Equities Diversification Requirement" - At any time, no equity is to make up more than 40% of total securities' value.
(goes into effect on 4/1/12) (current largest equitiy: ~62% of all securities)
