We, the Bitbond GmbH, registered at the trade register Amtsgerichts Charlottenburg under the number HRB 146980 B, Lottumstraße 26, 10119 Berlin, Germany ('Bitbond'), represented by the managing director Radoslav Albrecht, operate a virtual online-marketplace ('marketplace') for brokering contracts for the use of the digital currency bitcoin ('bitcoin loans').
We broker bitcoin loans between marketplace participants ('users'), who want to use bitcoins for a specific time period and pay interest ('borrowers') and marketplace participants who want to lend bitcoins to other people for interest ('lenders'). We are not a contract party in the brokered bitcoin loans. Before brokering bitcoin loans we assess the creditworthiness of the borrower ('rating'). The borrower pays a rating fee for this assessment of creditworthiness and an origination fee if a bitcoin loan gets successfully funded.
By connecting borrowers and lender directly we have three goals: We want individuals and business owners to get access to bitcoins as a means of funding, moreover we want to create the opportunity to earn interest income on bitcoins and we want to contribute to a more stable global financial system by dispersing credit risk more broadly and by creating funding solutions with matched maturities.
Generally a bitcoin loan is denominated to a specific amount of bitcoins. Alternatively a loan can also be denominated in US dollars (= exchange rate pegged loan, 'ERP-loan'), but also in this case the lender lends bitcoins to the borrower. The repayment of lent bitcoins and the interest payment occurs according to the agreement between borrower and lender either as a bullet payment at maturity of the loan or in recurring installments. Bitcoin loans (also in the case of ERP-loans) are treated like in-kind loans according to § 607 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch - BGB), this means both, repayment of principal and interest payments are to be made in bitcoins.
The following rules apply for the relationship between Bitbond and the user:
I. General conditions

- The contractual relationship between the user and Bitbond remains unaffected from changes, service interruptions and/or limitations of the contractual relationship from brokered bitcoin loans.

Therefore users will never reveal their password by phone or by email, even if an email or telephone call makes the impression to be coming from Bitbond.
- During the registration users are required to state correct and complete information about themselves. This data is stored in the personal area which is only accessible by the user.

§ 3 Functioning and use of the marketplace
- Users can act as a borrower and/or as a lender on the marketplace. As borrowers users can use borrowed bitcoins or as lenders user can lend bitcoins to borrowers and thereby earn an interest income on these bitcoins.
- Bitbond runs the marketplace to broker the closure of bitcoin loan contracts. Lenders can also use AutoInvest to find suitable borrowers and loans. With AutoInvest Bitbond provides and algorithm that brokers loans according to criteria that were specified by the lender. In addition to that Bitbond offers user additional paid services that are related to brokering bitcoin loan contracts. This especially includes the rating of borrowers (see also § 7), which is a prerequisite for a bitcoin loan. This means that Bitbond acts in four different functions:
- as a broker of bitcoin loans,
- as a provider of the technical platform of the marketplace,
- as a service provider for the administration of bitcoin loans as well as
- a provider of additional paid services, especially ratings.
§ 4 General rules for borrowers and lenders
- To protect the privacy of all of all users, both borrowers and lenders generally remain anonymous. 2. The user receives a personal identification number from Bitbond ('user ID'), by which borrowers and lenders are identifiable for Bitbond. Bitbond will disclose the identity of the respective counterparty if a party requests this in written form and if the party proofs that the disclosure is necessary for the enforcement of rights and/or protectable interests versus the user or versus third parties. 3. Users can look up their data in their personal site section which is only accessible to them. 4. To make the closure of bitcoin loan contracts as convenient as possible all bitcoin loans are standardized and contain this minimum set of information:
- user ID of the borrower and user ID(s) of the lender(s)
- the amount of lent bitcoins (loan amount)
- fee for the use of bitcoins expressed as a per annum (p.a.) interest rate of the outstanding principal loan amount (payable in bitcoins),
- the term of the bitcoin loan,
- the payment dates and
- the loan purpose.
- Bitbond does not offer any advisory or consulting services beyond the scope of what is required by law. This means that users have to check in their own responsibility if a bitcoin loan is a suitable contract for them subject to their personal general and financial circumstances, or in the case of legal entities and private companies their overall economic circumstances.
§ 5 General conditions for the use of the marketplace
- The marketplace is offered by Bitbond exclusively to private individuals. The marketplace can only be used by registered users on their own account. Borrowed bitcoins can be used for private and for business purposes or for freelance job activities. Within general laws Bitbond decides freely, which users are given access to the marketplace.
- Moreover, Bitbond only grants access to users who
- are contractually capable (sui juris) without restrictions
- have stated the minimum required information about them during the registration and
§ 6 Bitcoin account
- Bitbond sets up an account for bitcoins for all users ('bitcoin account'). The use of the marketplace as a borrower requires a verification of the account according to § 7.
- The bitcoin account is required for the administration of bitcoin loans and is a prerequisite for the participation in the marketplace. The following points apply in respect to the bitcoin account:
- a) The funding of the account with bitcoins can be done by digital transfer to this account: the required bitcoin address is displayed to users in their personal section under 'Funds'.
- b) As soon as users have placed a bid to a bitcoin loan (§ 9 section 1), their bitcoin account the respective amount will be debited ('reserved bitcoins').

- c) Bitcoins that are not lent and are not reserved bitcoins can be withdrawn by the user to another bitcoin address at any time.
- d) The user doesn't pay any fee for the bitcoin account.
- e) Bitbond will not take possession or ownership of the bitcoins of its users.
II. Conditions for borrowers
§ 7 Verification of the borrower after the rating
- Before users can act as borrowers on the marketplace for the first time, Bitbond assesses their creditworthiness ('rating'). Users are therefore required to state information about their financial background. Additionally users have the option to grant Bitbond access to other website (e.g. eBay) where information is stored about them. Thereby users can improve their rating and improve their trustworthiness towards lenders.
- During the registration the user allows Bitbond to ask for information about past payment behavior and scoring information based on mathematical-statistical methods under the application of address data (scoring – for the calculation of default probabilities) from infoscore Consumer Data GmbH, Rheinstraße 99, 76532 Baden-Baden. As part of the rating the user is also required to allow Bitbond to ask for credit information from other scoring providers, in case a cooperation exists between Bitbond and a credit bureau in the country of the borrower. In the course of the credit check Bitbond will obey all privacy protection laws. The credit score of the user will be published along with the project on the marketplace. For the credit check Bitbond needs the explicit consent of the user. Bitbond asks the user for this explicit consent along with other data requests. Without this explicit consent the use of the marketplace as a borrower is not possible.
- The rating of the borrower is based on information that Bitbond received from the user. Bitbond processes this information to give an indication about the creditworthiness. This indication is represented by different letters. The rating letter 'A' represents the highest creditworthiness, the letter 'F' represents the lowest creditworthiness. The rating is conducted based on the following information
- The credit score received from credit bureaus
- Type of employment
- Connection of the personal PayPal account
- eBay feedback score
- Country of residence
- Payment history of bitcoin loans (share of late payments compared to all due payments) in case a history exists.

Negative entries include the following: an entry in the list of debtors, personal bankruptcy or insolvency, an affirmation in lieu of oath, a judicial or extrajudicial collection or delinquency procedure or execution proceedings.
- If a borrower does not get verified the paid rating fee will not be reimbursed.
§ 8 Loan amount
The amount of bitcoins that a borrower can borrow is limited – depending on the personal financial circumstances of the user. Moreover, the loan amount is between a general minimum loan amount and a personal maximum amount. The bitcoin loan amount can consist of whole bitcoins or can have decimals with a denomination of 0.01 bitcoins. The current minimum loan amount and the currently available denomination is available at www.bitbond.com/rates_and_fees.
§ 9 Borrowing of bitcoins
- Users apply for a publication of their loan requests on the marketplace as borrowers. This application is a plea to Bitbond for brokerage. Thereupon Bitbond proposes the borrower a certain interest rate according to criteria defined by Bitbond. The proposal is based on the rating. When the user accepts this proposal, the loan request is published to the marketplace.
- With the publication of the loan request on the marketplace the user as a borrower asks other users for a bid (invitatio ad offerendum). Thereby information about the borrower like the rating and anonymous information about financial circumstances are published.
- The borrower can additionally describe the purpose of the bitcoin loan. The borrower is responsible for the published content and is bound to not publish or make available any illegal or immoral content, to allude to such content or link to such content. If Bitbond learns about a breach of this rule, the content will be removed.
- The users as lenders can bid on such loan requests during a specific time period ('auction'). Bids can be placed for the entire requested amount or for parts thereof. The currently valid auction period can be viewed at www.bitbond.com/rates_and_fees.
- The contract for a bitcoin loan between the borrower and the lender(s) closes according to the conditions as determined at the end of the auction if there is a sufficient number of lender for the entire requested amount or if the total bids by the end of the auction reach the minimum amount as described by Bitbond.
- The minimum amount for a bitcoin loan can be viewed at www.bitbond.com/rates_and_fees.
- If there is more than one lender to one bitcoin loan, each lender is a partial creditor.
- With the closure of a bitcoin loan contract Bitbond is entitled to an origination fee according to current terms. The current origination fee values can be viewed at www.bitbond.com/rates_and_fees.
- The current status of a loan request as well as already funded bitcoin loans can be viewed under 'Funds'.
§ 10 Repayment of a bitcoin loan
- When a borrower's loan request was funded a payment schedule is displayed under 'Funds' according to the terms as agreed between the borrower and the lender(s). Borrowers ensure that their bitcoin account is sufficiently funded at repayment dates. Bitbond automatically transacts repayments from the borrower's account and credits the payment to the lender(s). Bitbond has the right to disclose the identity of the borrower to lenders if collection efforts should not be successful.
- If a borrower does not repay his loan, or does not repay as scheduled in his payment plan, or if he is overdue for an installment, he must pay additional interest on the value of the overdue bitcoins at a rate of five percent (500 basis points) per annum above the base rate. The borrower may prove that no, or only limited loss or damage has been incurred. The assertion of damages going beyond such late payment damages shall be reserved.
- If the borrower fails to pay two consecutive installments on time, as scheduled in the payment plan, or becomes overdue, the lender may - after reminding the borrower giving a deadline for payment without success - terminate the contractual relationship without observing any notice period (the right to extraordinarily terminate the contract). In consequence of the loan contract being terminated, Bitbond may demand immediate payment of all outstanding principal, effective immediately. The terms set forth in §§16, 23 section 2 sentence 2, section 5 and section 6 apply accordingly.
§ 11 Exchange rate pegged loans (ERP-loans)
Lenders and borrowers can also agree on a bitcoin loan where each repayment is pegged to the US dollar exchange rate exchange rate pegged loans (ERP-loans). When an ERP-loan is funded, the US dollar equivalent of the funded amount is calculated by Bitbond. Based on this calculation, the values of the payment schedule are calculated in US dollars. At the due date of a payment, the borrower has to pay a bitcoin amount, that is equivalent in value to the dollar value of the payment, as calculated by Bitbond at the due date.
