Hi Sarah,

When you sign up to Celsius Network, there should be a ‘Deposit’ button on the homescreen. When tapping that, it’ll give you an address to deposit your assets. If those assets are supported by Celsius Network, then you should be able to deposit it to the corresponding address.

Hi Korean Visitor,

They have Loan to Value ratios that generally protect them in such events. Should the value of the crypto drop below a certain price, the collateral and loan will be automatically liquidated protecting them from any such events.

The Loan-to-Value (LTV) is what determines the amount of crypto collateral you need to provide. For example, if you want to borrow $10,000 in a collateralized loan and the LTV is 50%, then you would need to provide $20,000 worth of Bitcoin.

Most crypto lenders offer such solutions with significant crypto-based collateral protecting them from such events. It is a really good point though and something to look out for when choosing a lender. Generally, those without healthy LTVs are best to avoid as they could be problematic in a bear market.
