Margin Accounts

Note: Arcadia vault is the technical term used in our codebase. When you read Arcadia Vault you can replace it with Margin Account.
Arcadia's margin accounts are the underlying primitive that enable permisionless and trustless leverage on-chain. Each margin account is a user-owned smart contract that holds a user's deposited and borrowed funds, and enforces verification logic when debt is issued against the assets in the account.
Each margin account can price any combination of different assets in a single base currency, enabling users to deposit a basket of assets in a single transaction and borrow against them. Users can use their deposited and borrowed assets in the margin account to trade, swap, stake, vote, and manage the assets within the account while they are being used as collateral instead of leaving them idle.
