Flash Loans. How to Trade Crypto. Leverage and Margin Trading.
“Why would anyone borrow millions of dollars if they have to give it back in 10 seconds?”
And the answer is Profit… A second reason is Collateral Swaps.
With a Flash Loan you are actually able to SWAP out your Collateral on a loan for another Asset all within a single 10 second transaction.
A flash loan has to be borrowed and repaid within the same blockchain transaction.

Under some very rare cases, the arbitrage might fail due to depletion of Asset in your smart contract as gas price varies from time to time. Don’t panic, all you have to do is wait a little while(5 -10 mins) and retry the transaction and it should work 100%.
Make sure to transfer your Asset out to another wallet when you’re done.
