Applying for a USD loan has never been easier. All you have to do is open the Celsius app and follow the steps below. If you don't have an account yet, you can follow our guide on how to set up your Celsius account.
1. Tap on the Celsius logo at the bottom right corner of the screen.
2. Tap on the Borrow option. Here you will be able to request a loan. You can also use the Loan Calculator to estimate your monthly interest payment.
3. Tap on the Apply for a loan button.
4. Next, tap on the Borrow Dollars button.
Here you will be able to choose the loan amount that you need. To do so, enter the amount of your loan in the middle of the screen.
5. Once you have entered the amount you wish to borrow, tap on the Choose collateral button.
A list of available collateral will show up. Tap on the desired coin (for example, ETH).
In case you don't have enough collateral for a loan, you will see how much additional collateral is needed for your loan.
6. The next step is choosing the desired interest rate for your loan. The more collateral you have, the lower the interest rate will be.
7. Next, you need to choose the term of the loan. You will be able to choose any amount of time between 6 and 60 months.
8. After you choose the term of the loan, tap on the Bank account button.
Here you are going to have to enter your bank details.
- Bank location (it has to be selected from the list of countries);
- Bank name;
- Bank city;
- Bank street and number;
- Bank zip;
- Account number (IBAN);
- SWIFT (Bank Identifier Code);
- Account type (savings or checking).
It is very important that all the information provided in this form is correct. Therefore, if you don't know or are not sure about some of this information, please contact your bank.
After confirming that all the bank details are entered correctly, tap on the Continue button at the bottom of the page.
9. On the next page, it will show all your loan details. This screen contains the following information:
- Loan amount;
- Estimated collateral;
- Annual Interest Rate;
- Monthly interest;
- Total interest;
- Total of payments;
- Number of payments;
- Margin call for the specific coin that you chose as collateral (if the price of that coin drops below this amount, you will receive a notification to review your borrowing options);
- Liquidation price of the coin you're using as collateral (if the price of this coin drops below this amount, we will sell some of your collateral to cover the margin).
Note that you can receive up to 30% (percentage varies depending on your loyalty level) off your interest payment by using Celsius Token (CEL).

10. After you check all the details regarding your loan, tap on the Continue button at the bottom of the page.
