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).
As covered by U.Today previously, both Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB) represent memetic coins with no real-world use cases.
Promo campaign with XRP and BTR bonuses launches
Dogecoin (DOGE) and its dog-themed copycats have been aggressively promoted by Elon Musk. Meanwhile, after jaw-dropping rallies, their prices plummeted when Vitalik Buterin dropped significant shares of their supplies.
Bitrue (BTR) celebrates a new opportunity with a massive promo campaign. Any user who collateralizes Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB) automatically receives 10 XRP.
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).
