What are the lending risks? The lending provided by the exchange is “loaned out to the trader” by the user who makes the trade to do the short. There are examples of losses and lending users’ assets being cut above margin in the case of exchanges without zero cuts, such as the default case of Poloniex.
In contrast, the lending of Binance is not used in margin trades launched on July 11, and is not considered a default risk because it is offered at a fixed rate. According to Binance, the lending-enabled virtual currency will expand in the future, adding Bitcoin, Ethereum and other alto coins that are more likely to beholders.
