Learn about SALT and their company culture.
As cryptocurrency becomes more widely adopted and additional real-world assets become tokenized, our mission is to offer solutions that make it possible for people to securely hold and borrow against their cryptoassets. With SALT, individuals and businesses can secure a fiat or stablecoin loan without having to worry about credit checks. We offer flexible loan terms and accept multiple cryptoassets as collateral including cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and tokenized gold.
SALT was founded in 2016 by a group of Bitcoin enthusiasts who aimed to prove that people didn’t need to compromise their lifestyle or forego their needs in order to pursue a long term outlook on cryptocurrency. We introduced asset backed lending to the cryptocurrency marketplace, providing a new level of versatility to digital asset holders.
Fast-forward to today and you discover a company that builds not only crypto-backed lending technology but also scalable institutional-grade crypto custody and blockchain monitoring products. At SALT, it is our belief that the faster the world embraces digital asset technology, the more effective money can be for all of humanity.
Outperforming its contemporaries as a form of money, salt is the origin of our name
The name SALT is inspired by the unique qualities its namesake shares with blockchain assets like bitcoin. These are qualities that enabled salt to serve ancient humans as civilization stretched around the globe.
Salt’s utility, combined with its divisibility, verifiability, and fungibility, made it a perfect asset to be used as method of trade and currency across history. Through our products and services, its legacy continues.
