When the total borrowed
exceeds the borrowable amount
, the loan can be liquidated by a third party:
When a third party liquidates a loan, they select a single borrow to repay and a single collateral to seize. The maximum amount
, they can liquidate is given as a percentage
(e.g. 50%) of the borrow balance
To incentivise third parties to liquidate other users’ under-collateralized loans, a liquidation bonus
is earned. If there is insufficient balance of the chosen collateral, then at most the full collateral balance will be seized.
A portion of the liquidation bonus is kept by the protocol as revenue, as determined by the liquidation fee
, Any remaining collateral that is not retained by the protocol, will be earned by the liquidator.
