Guide to short-selling with CoinRabbit bear market loans

(Last Updated On: )

Despite the general chart of the upswing trend of the cryptocurrency as a whole, it is periodically drawn down by corrections, or the news affecting the market in the background.According to CoinMarketCap, the price of Bitcoin has been volatile by more than 20% during the last week (14-20 June 2021). Meanwhile, altcoins have lost about 30-40% on average due to massive bans in China as well as cancellation of BTC acceptance by several corporations.

This is exactly the case why and how crypto loans can help you to accumulate more funds while the market is bearish.

Shorting: What is it?

Shorting is understood as with the aim of capitalizing on the reduced cost of activation. If you believe that any asset will become cheaper, you sell assets on the exchange and wait for a price downswing. If the dump occurs, you earn the difference between the prices while selling and buying assets back. It can be done multiple times depending on the market condition.

For example, on Monday June 21. the BTC price dropped below the $34,000 level. This kind of the market drawdowns could be used for shorting.

A real example of getting profit with a bear crypto loan

Here is the simple explanation of shorting with the help of CoinRabbit loans:

1. For example, you have 50.000 USDT and get 0.75 BTC loan from CoinRabbit for depositing your USDT.

2. The price of Bitcoin at the time of getting the loan is $35.000. You sell or exchange 0.75 BTC at this price. For such sell you get around 26.250 USDT

3. A month and a half later, during the cryptocurrency market continuing downswing, the price of BTC dropped to $25,000.
You buy more BTC at this rate – for 26.250 USDT you get 1.05 BTC

4. With such market move you earn 0.3 BTC difference from the moment of you getting the loan from CoinRabbit.

5. Now you want to close the loan and bring back your deposit.

6. The annual loan interest rate is 10% (APR). Since you paid off the debt in a month and a half, the interest accumulated is just 0.0125 BTC.

7. You send the repayment amount for your loan to CoinRabbit which is 0.7625 BTC and get back the 50 000 USDT deposit.

8. Total profit is 0.2875 BTC (that is 9.528$ at the moment). You can sell it or hold it and wait for the right moment.
