Open Protocol is the only standalone loan solution in DeFi that enables collateralised loans up to a 1:3 collateral-to-loan ratio. It means you can borrow up to $300 by providing only $100 as collateral. Of this, you can withdraw $70 (i.e. up to 70% collateral) while using $230 as in-platform trading capital.
