With Kava Lend, it’s easy to leverage any asset supported by Kava Mint. The guide below will walk you through depositing BUSD, supplying BUSD to Mint to obtain USDX, supplying USDX to Lend, and then reverse the process smoothly.
APY earnings can be expected to range between 35% and 45%, and supplying stablecoin assets to Mint involves very little risk. For USDX suppliers to Lend, there is little risk.
The following steps will guide you in how to quickly set up and reverse the BUSD Mint to Lend strategy.
1. Deposit BUSD (BEP-2) to Kava
To take advantage of the Kava Earn strategy, you must first obtain supported assets — Kava Currently supports BEP-2 Binance assets such as BNB, BUSD, BTCB, and XRPB.
Binance Chain uses the BEP-2 token standard, while Binance Smart Chain (BSC) uses the BEP-20 standard. The BNB token is necessary for processing transactions with both. Therefore, you’ll need to use some BNB to transact on either chain.
The BEP-2 and BEP-20 token standards are fully compatible, and users can transfer BEP-2 Assets between BSC and Binance Chain via the Trust Wallet.
To deposit assets, head to the Balances page in the Kava app.
2. Supply BUSD to Kava Mint
Now that you have deposited your BUSD to the Kava chain, you can use BUSD as collateral to borrow USDX at up to 99.01% Loan to Value (LTV) with Kava Mint.
What makes stablecoins special on Kava Mint is their fixed USD$1.00 peg, and users can borrow 99% of the value supplied. That means Mint users can take out loans against crypto-asset collateral at a 99.01% LTV ratio to obtain USDX without paying trade fees.
Kava Mint is designed in such a way to minimize risk for users. Stablecoins like BUSD have fixed asset prices to minimize price fluctuation risks, and it would take a multi-day de-pegging of BUSD to put a user’s position at risk.
In addition, users can obtain USDX without exposure to USDX price changes because they repay the USDX value of the loan regardless of the price of USDX.

3. Supply USDX to Lend
When you have successfully borrowed USDX from Kava Mint, you can then supply that USDX to Kava Lend and start earning stable returns on the supplied asset.
Users can earn 35%+ APY with USDX on Lend because USDX receives extra incentives compared to most other assets for being the native stablecoin of Kava. And importantly, for USDX suppliers, there is no liquidation risk on Kava Lend.
