Guaranteed Protection

Blockchain-powered Default Compensation Receipt™ (DCR) securities pay full market-based compensation to holders following a qualifying credit event.

Thus, DCR securities guarantee the market value of every referenced bond.

Default-Compensating Securities

DelphX® participants can anonymously structure blockchain-powered DCR securities that precisely meet their protection and/or speculation requirements for any of more than 1 million eligible reference issues.

All DCR securities:

  • Are competitively negotiated and originated within the all-to-all DelphX market
  • Specify a negotiated fixed spread and tenor
  • Continually guarantee the market value of the referenced credit issue
  • Are transparently administered in the blockchain-powered distributed ledger integrated within DelphX
  • Are immediately eligible upon origination for secondary trading on DelphX
  • Are continuously benchmark-priced through validated MAVn® pricing forecasts
  • Facilitate liquid basis trading of the DCR and its referenced cash bond.


Continuous Mark-to-Market Collateralization

For optimal security, all DCR securities:

  • Are collateralized by cash, cash-equivalent assets and guaranteed investment contracts issued by highly-rated insurers
  • Automatically adjust daily in percentage of collateralization based upon the current market pricing of DCR protection for the referenced issue
  • Contractually increase to full collateralization upon the report of a credit event involving the referenced issue.


Market-Based Compensation

When a credit event involving a referenced issue occurs, the compensation payable on all DCRs referencing the subject issue is determined by a single-price settlement auction of all available supply of that issue on DelphX. The clearing-price determined by that auction is then subtracted from the security’s par value to determine the compensation payable on all DCRs referencing that security.


Single-Price Settlement Auction
