Today, we’re excited to announce a slew of new features and improvements. Below is a short description of some of the bigger changes you will notice on BitLendingClub.com.
We appreciate that reading through long pieces of text is not always the most interesting way to spend your day, so each point is illustrated with a picture.
New security features:
You now have the ability to enable Two-Factor Authentication for:
- for every login
- for every withdrawal request
- for changes in the settings
But that’s not the only improvement.
Loan type updates:
We have placed restrictions on this type of loans and withdrawals of funds from BLC Investing loans are automatically rejected!
We have placed additional restrictions on reputation loans. Funds from reputation loans cannot be used for investing in other loans and withdrawals of funds from reputation loans are automatically rejected.
We’ve also enhanced the repay functionality.
When you go to the “Loans” page and click on the repay button, a new page is opened:
On the new page you are able to see the amotization schedule of the loan and repay every single payment.
And there’s more
- Canceled loans are now shown on the user’s profile page an you are now able to see even the canceled loans on the borrower’s page.
- You can filter the loans of each borrower from their profile page. The filters are: Funding, Funded, Repaid/Closed, Expired, Canceled, and Canceled/Suspicious.
- Furthermore, you are now able to see the investments of each user on their profile page.
- The reputation loan voting system has been improved. If 5 people have voted that a particular loan is a reputation loan, then the loan is canceled and an admin comment is posted on the loan page.
Some minor improvements
- Instead of showing the user’s income, the income range is now displayed.
- The loan title with a hyperlink to the loan is now added to the e-mail notification for new comments on the loan.
- Posting links to loan pages and user profile pages now comes with metadata. When you post a link on Facebook, it will now show relevant data for the link.

In the coming weeks we will be adding more improvements.
