How much interest do I earn from providing liquidity and pay for borrowing to buy assets?
Interest rates are a function of the liquidity available in each market, and fluctuate in real-time based on supply and demand. When liquidity is plentiful, interest rates are low. As liquidity becomes scarce, interest rates increase, incentivizing new supply and the repayment of borrowing. You aren’t locked into an interest rate — expect it to change.

How do I know my supply balance? You can check your supply balance under the website’s portfolio section.
When will my positions get liquidated?
You will be liquidated if your borrow balance comes close to the value of asset you hold. This is done to safeguard the lenders from losing their money. Here is an approximate mathematical formulae. Liquidation point = Current Value - [(90% * Current value) - Borrow Amount]

What is a pToken?
PTokens represent users' balances or deposit within paxo. Users can redeem their pTokens for assets or mint new ones in exchange for the underlying term.
When do I repay the loan?
The loan amount is perpetual, so you can have it for as long as you like. However if you reach liquidation point, you have a risk of liquidation.
Why is the supply rate lower than the borrowing rate?
In each market there is excess liquidity (assets supplied > assets borrowed), which allows you to quickly withdraw or borrow funds from the protocol.
The interest paid by borrowers is earned by the suppliers of the asset. Because there are more suppliers, the interest rate they earn is proportionately lower; this measured by an asset’s Utilization Rate.
Second, a portion of the interest paid by borrowers is set aside as reserves which acts as insurance.
