DOGE, SHIB are now accepted as collateral by Bitrue Loan: see LTV

According to the official announcement by cryptocurrency ecosystem Bitrue (BTR), its lending/borrowing module Bitrue Loan now accepts Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB) as collateral.

Good news for all the $DOGE and $SHIB lovers out there, you can now pledge them as collateral in a #BitrueLoan! What's more, you'll be able to borrow at an impressive 50% LTV to maximize the value of your dogs.

Both coins can be pledged for loans denominated in Bitcoin (BTC) and U.S. Dollar Tether (USDT) stablecoins. The offering includes a very lucrative "loan-to-value" ratio of 50%.

That means that, say, to borrow $1,000 in USDT, you need to pledge $2,000 in Dogecoins (DOGE) or Shiba Inu Coins (SHIB).

Also, participants in the promo who spread the word about the offering are eligible for the tournament, with the main prize of 1,000 Bitrue Coins (BTR).
