    For example, consider a loan for an Azuki NFT, numbered #5770, currently on auction with a buy-out price of 13.92E. By acquiring this loan, calling it, and if the borrower fails to repay within the allotted time, the Azuki NFT can effectively be obtained for 13.92E.

  • Increasing the Chances of Success: To maximize the likelihood of success, it is advisable to target loans with high APY. These loans accumulate debt at a faster pace, eventually reaching a point where potential lenders hesitate to engage in buy-outs due to the associated risks.screenshot of blur
  • Strategic Timing: The objective is to acquire the loan at a price that allows the debt to match or exceed the current floor price. This minimizes the probability of being bought out when calling the loan, as it involves substantial risk for potential buyers.
  • Profit Realization: Upon successful liquidation, the Azuki NFT can be sold. Assuming the floor price remains stable, selling the acquired NFT at, for instance, 14.5E would result in a profit of approximately 0.6E.
