Problem

Credit is the world’s most important financial engine, as it drives growth, personally and commercially, pushing our society forward. but credit products are still expensive and often inaccessible for those who need it the most. Its because the infrastructure of the credit industry still relies on limited, cumbersome, heavily intimidated and costly processes developed over 5 decades ago. It’s time to for a system upgrade.

Solution

Solution

We believe the solution comes from within; instead of building yet another lending platform, we are creating a new protocol, based on blockchain technology powering a shared, synchronised credit ledger. This will allow existing participants to connect and transact in a much more efficient way that will reduce costs of trading, while building a stronger ecosystem.

What is credium?

The Credium protocol allows financial institutions to setup a private blockchain based marketplace for liquidity purposes (secondary markets for loans) or connect to Credium's global ledger, which allows any note holder to price, list and sell their credit assets across platforms.

FAQ

Why Blockchain?
General purpose blockchains allow for digital assets to be transferred efficiently between different closed systems; it allows:
• Direct transaction between market participants
• Performance-based and unbiased risk scoring
• Asset metadata is always up to date (every~10 Sec)
• Immutable provenance and historic performance
• Fair access to all market participants
• Connecting crypto investors to the credit markets
How is Credium different from multiple blockchain lending platforms recently launched?
Credium is not an online lender - it does not issue loans to borrowers, nor does it handle any borrower personally identifiable information. Credium operates a secondary market for loans, allowing anyone who owns borrower notes (whole or fractional loans), i.e the beneficiaries receiving the repayments - to liquidate these notes by tokenizing and trading them in a transparent, frictionless, decentralized exchange.
Why Use the CDM Token?
CDM utility tokens are used to pay the fees, which are required for interacting with the Credium platform. When interacting with the Credium platform, users receive assurance that the underlying assets and tokens exchanged are in full compliance with the regulation in each market, which Credium operates in.
As a regulated platform, Credium ensures all notes exchanged on the CDM platform are issued by regulated entities, and that all risk models used to price them are in full compliance with specific regulations to the region in which the underlying loans have been originated
Is CDM similar to the Securitization Markets for Loans?
No. Credium operates CDM as Secondary market for trading matured notes, originally issued on primary lending markets. In the Securitization markets pools of assets are bundled together, rated as tranches and sold off by several intermediaries allowing price distortions to occur. In a secondary market each asset is being exchanged independently and is not buried within a large complex financial instrument.
To further mitigate price distortion, CDM also does not allow any bid/ask auction type trading, and uses its proprietary Open Risk Marketplace to maintain a tight correlation between the risk and the price of each note.
How is CDM solving mark-to-market and price discovery?
Using the Open Risk Marketplace, CDM eliminates the need for an auction based bid/ask process to perform price discovery. While the bid/ask method may be suitable for the stock or commodity markets, it has proven more than problematic when it comes to pricing loans, and that is part of the reasons why the securitization markets are the only cross-platform outlet available to some investors today, to liquidate loans.
The open repository of publicly available risk models hosts transparent risk models, with immutable accuracy and historic performance scores, linked directly to the assets exchanged on CDM, and allow any risk analyst to publish, modify and monetize their trained models.

These publicly available models allow both sides of the market to price the notes independently, and either agree or disagree on the trade. Once the seller chooses to list the note, he or she can choose one of the available risk models to evaluate the note’s risk and based on the selling price, he can immediately see the timeframe in which notes with a similar combination risk profile and price have been sold before on CDM.
Does Credium offer automated Trading?
The second major release of CDM will allow for algorithmic portfolio management. Using CDM automated trading tools, buyers will be able to select their prefered risk models from the Credium Open Risk Marketplace and set a strategy that will maintain their portfolio balanced based on their preferred risk appetite, i.e. re-investing monthly returns automatically.
Is CDM regulated?
Yes. This is the reason Credium is issuing the CDM token - to ensure the smart contracts it deploys are used by the market participants it validates. All assets and market participants must comply with the regulatory requirements of the various credit markets in which CDM will be integrated to.
What fees are charged on CDM?
Fees on CDM are paid using the CDM token and are used for:
  1. Scoring assets on ORP
    • The fee is set by the risk model publisher(s) and paid by anyone scoring a note.
  2. Trading fees
    • Sellers and buyers pay a fee to the Credium platform when Tokenizing, and purchasing notes.
    • Credium pays fees to Oracles for validating the note payments.
    • All trading fees are balanced to equal 0.5% of the USD note value.
  3. Exchanging any liquid stable tokens to BTC ETH or Fiat
