Regardless of the loan being interest free, it could become hard for a startup to repay the loan if the value of NXT rises.

You would be better suited loaning out gateway specific fiat IOUs via the monetary system or AE.

For this to happen, a fiat gateway would need to issue fiat IOUs and the bank would have to purchase the fiat IOUs from the gateway.

I'd talked with jl777 already about the ability to lend in other currencies using the multigateway. Definitely something I'd want to use! Being able to borrow in their "native" currency will be attractive to projects outside of NXT.

The drawback to using the multi-gateway is that it only supports cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrencies are very volatile.  This is better than nothing though because other cryptocurrencies might be less volatile than NXT.

To lend out fiat IOUs, you need to purchase them from fiat gateways.  You would want to diversify your fiat IOU issuers in case of a gateway default.

You could also always lend out NXT but tie the principle to a fiat value.

It would be great if the NXT core would implement a credit feature allowing accounts to "trust" (extend credit) to other accounts.

Accounts that owe (have a line of credit) would show a negative asset balance and accounts that are owed (extended the credit) would show a positive balance.

How do you plan on recording owed balances?  On a spreadsheet?

If NXT integrated this feature all obligations would be recorded on the blockchain.

Only trust those you know IRL or that have verifiable identities.  A web-of-trust scheme could be used to bind NXT accounts with IDs.

Great name change, the word 'bank' makes people shudder, as the trust has gone with banks. BOOST is so Positive.  The intention and suggestion. Credit is also better than the word 'debt'.....    It's all about attracting projects, enterprise and merchants from outside NXT.
