BiFi X is an entirely new application of flash loans that maximizes leverage and democratizes the potential of DeFi lending
BiFi X, a flash-loan based automated leverage service, is now live on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). As an expansion of the BiFi lending service, BiFi X enables users to trade with leverage up to 10x on yield farming and 5x on margin trading in one-click.
All positions on BiFi X occur in a single transaction, which means that fees are much lower than when having to repeat deposits and borrows multiple times to get maximum leverage. The application of flash loans have democratized financial market-making, while increasing profitability for liquidity providers.
BiFi X is also the first Decentralized Finance (DeFi) lending service that allows users to manage and monitor each long/short position separately, so users can clearly see returns and easily take profits. It’s a user-focused application of flash loans and DeFi lending that is simpler, cheaper, and safer than any other existing lending or wallet services.
BiFi’s focus is on creating a truly multi-chain DeFi ecosystem that connects all the capital markets.
Since launching on Ethereum two weeks ago, BiFi X has already more than $8 million in positions on just Ethereum. The launch of BiFi on Binance Smart Chain will enable the protocol to achieve a wider user base and create a diverse ecosystem. The Binance Smart Chain ecosystem is growing quickly and enjoying high trading volumes as users take advantage of its low fees and faster transactions.
How Does BiFi X Work?
There are two main features on BiFi X: Earn and Bet.
Earn maximizes leverage for yield farming in a single transaction.
If a user deposits 2 BNB on Earn with 4X Boost, the user can add 6 additional BNB to deposit, then borrow 6 BNB to repay the flash loan. User ends up with 8 ETH in deposits and 6 BNB in borrows, earning BiFi rewards for 14 BNB worth instead of the initial 2 BNB deposit — getting 7X leverage.
Maximum leverage depends on each asset’s collateral ratio. With USDC, a user can deposit 100 USDC to end up with a yield farming position worth 1040 USDC — that’s 10X leverage.
Bet maximizes leverage for margin trading in a single transaction.
Let’s say 1 BNB is trading at 600 USDT and a user believes that the BNB price will go up. The user deposits 2 BNB on Bet, adds 6 additional BNB to deposit using flash loans, borrows 3,600 USDT, and swaps USDT for 6 BNB to repay the flash loan. In total, the user has 8 BNB in deposits and 3,600 USDT in borrows.
If the BNB price goes up to 1,200 USDT, the user only needs 2 BNB to pay back 3,600 USDT. The user is left with 6 BNB worth 7,200 USDT, rather than the initial 2 BNB worth 2,400. In a 100% price increase, users can net 300% in profit with leverage.
When users open any leveraged position on BiFi X, they also earn BiFi rewards in addition to their leveraged profit.
Both Earn and Bet require a BiFi X fee, a small amount paid in BiFi tokens. BiFi X offers a preferential discount for BiFi token holders — the more users hold BiFi tokens in their wallet, the more fee discounts they get (up to 90% discount).
BiFi tokens can be purchased or earned from using BiFi, the multi-chain DeFi platform. Currently supported on Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum, BiFi offers decentralized lending, staking, and liquidity mining services. BiFi offers some of the highest APYs, including ETH, BNB, DAI, USDC, USDT, and collateral ratios in the market.
