Anchor FAQ

How much can I borrow?

You can borrow up to a maximum 70% of your deposited collateral, which equates to a 140% collateralization ratio, however some assets have a higher collateralization ratio (meaning less can be borrowed against them).
Over time the collateralization ratio will be reduced so that you can borrow higher amount vs your deposited collateral, resulting in higher capital efficiency
