I. Dev update. Apllication will recieve more stability and additional functions.
ETHLend is working hard to develop, test and deploy the latest changes that the team is implementing to the decentralized application. Additionally, ETHLend reached the Q4 2017 milestone: Fiat-based loans and installments! Here are the new functions and features ETHLend is currently working on:
1. New milestone: FIAT-based loans � Users can choose USD as the base currency instead of following the Ethereum price. Therefore, the borrower does not suffer from volatility upon repayment of the loan, when the borrower is repaying the loan with FIAT earned income. The USD/ETH rate is provided by Oraclize.it.
2. New milestone: Installments � Users can select to pay the loan back in installments, for example every week, once a month, or other specified frequency. This feature is available for loans that are maximum of 1 year length. Penalty of 2% of the loan capital shall be charged and paid to the lender in case the borrower does not repay accordingly to the installment plan (Penalties feature is further developed on Q2 2018 accordingly to the roadmap).
3. Basic collateral management � Users must pledge 150% collateral. If the collateral drops in value to 100%, the lender has the option to call (claim) the collateral to further realize it in an exchange to regain any losses. The collateral price function is performed with the use of Oraclize.it.
4. Pre-accepted collateral tokens � Collaterals are limited to top 100 liquid ERC-20 tokens from the coinmarketcap. Therefore, the users do not need to insert token contract address and token name, which makes it more easier to place a loan request and avoid the issues related to placing the wrong address.
5. Reputation based lending and CRE removed until KYC/Civic addon is applied during 2018.
6. Small user experience upgrade � We are removing steps on placing the loan request from 5 steps to 2 steps → Place a loan request and send tokens. Moreover, Auto Refresh function is added where necessary to make the user experience more pleasant.

ETHLend � Decentralized Lending on Ethereum Network
The first and only decentralized lending application on the Ethereum network.
About Page: https://ethlend.io
What is ETHLend?
ETHLend is a decentralized peer to peer lending application built on top of the Ethereum Network, using blockchain technology to enable secure and transparent lending.
ETHLend is developing a global lending market where borrowers and lenders from all parts of the world can participate in lending. The aim of ETHLend is to provide a transparent and global lending market and to erase interest rate differences between countries by providing more liquidity to local lending markets. ETHLend solves key issues regarding to collaterals, decentralized credit rating and exchange volatility risks, which enables the concept of decentralized lending experience.
The team behind ETHLend consists of 20 people who share the same aim to deliver decentralized lending to everyone. ETHLend differs from most blockchain startups by the fact that the team introduced their alpha release in early May this year. Based on the practical findings, ETHLend provided a detailed White Paper on how decentralized lending might revolutionize the lending industry permanently.
The DApp – Experience Decentralized Lending
ETHLend DApp is located at https://app.ethlend.io
You need to install MetaMask Google Chrome Add-on and set MetaMask to Main Ethereum Network.
For Testing use https://test.ethlend.io and set MetaMask to Kovan testnet.

Timeline of the milestones:
Upcoming Token Sale
While ETHLend is continuing to develop the decentralized application further, the team also revealed details on the upcoming pre token sale. ETHLend introduces LEND token for contributors who are participating in the token sale. The main utility function of LEND is the ability to use it for paying deployment fees on ETHLend with a 25% discount compared to ETH. Additionally, ETHLend shall provide other privileges for LEND token holders based on the community suggestions once the DAPP has grown into a full scale lending market.
The participants in pre-token sale will receive 20% bonus tokens as a reward for early contribution. The funding aim concerning the pre-token sale is 2 000 ETH (6% of total sold token), which will be used for financing further research and development of our decentralized lending application. The purpose of the pre-sale is also to prepare for the upcoming official token sale on the 25 November 2017.

Buying Unused LEND back – Burnbacks
Buybacks are used to remove inefficient and unused LEND from the market to avoid price decrease on LEND and to strengthen the position of the DAPP users.
Buybacks increase the value of LEND by limiting the total supply of the token and by increasing the percentage of the ownership of token holder�s LEND. Buybacks mean that ETHLend will use part of its fees to buy LEND from exchanges and burn these tokens (erasing the tokens forever).
ETHLend derives cash-flow when loan requests are deployed or funded. These fees are in place to fund the development of decentralized lending on ETHLend. Currently, the fees for deploying a loan request is set to 0.01 ETH, which the borrower pays. Similarly, the lender pays 0.01 ETH for funding the loan (these fees are subject to change).
ETHLend will use flat 5% of these fees to buy LEND from the exchange to burn the LEND. Moreover, additional 1 to 5% is used on top of the flat 5% fee depending on the fee volume growth in ETHLend (compared to previous year�s volume). Therefore, ETHLend can use as much as 10% of the fees for buybacks to increase the value of LEND and the percentage of the ownerships of token holders by decreasing the total supply of LEND permanently. The buybacks start on January 2018. Here is a demonstration of the fees used for buyback:
First year (during 2018) = 5%
5% + additional 1% if fee revenue is 20% higher than in previous year
5% + additional 2% if fee revenue is 40% higher than in previous year
5% + additional 3% if fee revenue is 60% higher than in previous year
5% + additional 4% if fee revenue is 80% higher than in previous year
5% + additional 5% if fee revenue is 100% higher than in previous year
Creating more value for the DAPP users. The buyback model provides value to use for holding LEND. Therefore, buybacks motivates to use the token due to the increasing added value effect. When the price of LEND is increasing, the DAPP users can spend less LEND for paying the deployment fees.
Secondarily and indirectly, LEND provides token holders cash-flow. When the percentage of the token holders ownership is increasing, the token holder can sell the increased portion on every burn to realize profit. This makes LEND sought after token.
The aim is to deliver strong token to the market and reward the token sale participants for early involvement.
Token Sale Smart Contract
Currently on security audit. After the security audit, the code is released on GitHub with the report.
