3. Use Nostra Money Market

The Nostra Money Market is permissionless and non-custodial. The App is currently in Alpha. Smart contracts are under audit and deposits are limited. Use at your own risk. Any loss of funds will not be covered by the Nostra team. Please read the disclaimer for more information.

Once your wallet is topped up with ETH, you are ready to start using the Money Market. Below is a list of actions you can take to participate in the alpha version of the app:


  • Deposit

Connect your wallet and deposit an amount of ETH or other tokens.

  • Borrow:

After depositing a token, the “borrow” tab will be enabled. Borrow an amount of any of the tokens, but be cautious about the health factor ratio. If it goes below 1, your deposit may be liquidated.

  • Adjust

You can adjust your collateral in this tab, but you must be very cautious about your health factor. Do not turn collateral off if you have debts.

  • Repay

Repay the borrowed amount from the repay tab.

  • Withdraw

After repaying your debt, you can withdraw your assets by clicking on “manage” and going to the “withdraw” tab. Do not withdraw your collateral if you still have debts.
