Pawn your NFT

Get loans in a matter of minutes on Cyan with your NFT


Good to know

All Pawn plans span over a three-month period, and as the platform matures we will expand terms to shorter and longer terms.

Pawn (collateralized loans)

This is the second tab in Cyan’s dApp. Pawning allows users to receive liquidity upfront for temporarily posting their NFT as collateral. In other words, users can borrow money against their NFTs! Up to 33% of the NFT’s value is possible to unlock. Users will repay the amount borrowed over 3 months in equal installments every 31 days.


Select the NFT you'd like to Pawn

Select your NFT to Pawn from the tab. You can use the menu on the left to filter by collection if you are a baller and have too many! Then, click on an NFT to see the Pawn menu and confirm details. This is what the prompt will look like:


Details of the Pawn after clicking on the NFT

After accepting both Accept buttons, you will be able to click Confirm Pawn which starts the process of moving your NFT into the collateral contract and immediately releasing Ethereum to you.


Clicking on the first Accept means the user agrees that any missed payments will result in a default of the NFT and all payments made to date.


Clicking on the second Accept means the user gives the Cyan wrapper contract permission to move the NFT into collateral, and start the Pawn plan. This is an automated process, and Cyan will NOT move your NFT anywhere outside of the escrow contract.

Only approved projects can be Pawned. Please check our Approved Projects to see if your favorite project is added! We are frequently adding projects, and we appreciate your patience as we onboard them :)

Make the payments as they come due, and on the last payment the NFT will be released to the user’s wallet 🙂. In the meantime, the user will have a Cyan-wrapped version of the NFT which will synthetically have all the utility of the underlying NFT.

Please see details for specifics on what utilities are passed on to the user during the plan.
