Bitcoin Pawning; Cryptocurrency "Secured" Loans Emerge In Ukraine

This week, the Ukrainian pawnshop chain Skarbnytsya announced that they will start offering loans taking Bitcoin and other crypto assets as collaterals, according to this source. They’ll do it with the collaboration of third-party exchanges.
The loan company will take every cryptocurrency market price and risk to calculate the amount of money lent on a case by case basis. They stated that in case of the rise of the crypto used as collateral, the customer could get also a rise on the loan requested. And in the case of a drop, the company would give the customer options to decide what to do with the crypto assets.
Ivan Ipatov, an employee of Skarbnytsya stated that:”The implementation of this project is due to the rapid development of crypto and blockchain in the world”.
Years ago, it would have been difficult for any company to accept bitcoin as a collateral for anything. But it seems that the business model of Skarbnytsya takes into consideration the volatility of the crypto market, and recognizes the importance that cryptocurrencies have today
