ClavexCredix’s Debt Facility to Float in 2023
According to a semi-viral press release, Credix’s new credit facility is set to open officially in 2023, with the debt denominating in the dollar-pegged stablecoin USDC. According to the statement, the project will fashion after all other Credix credit pools. The ClavexCredix debt pool will be split up into various smaller funds called “tranches” to offer investment opportunities for institutional investors with different return-on-risk profiles; tranches with lower risk, for example, would pay less yield.
Speaking on the new project, Chaim Finizola, Chief Growth Officer at Credix, stated that Clave will receive funds via on-chain transactions and smart contracts in USDC into the firm’s crypto wallet. Crypto funds can then be converted to traditional currency to lend to their borrowers. Also, to support the project, Fintech companies and non-bank financial institutions using the services of Credix can convert their receivables and real assets into investment capital.
Furthermore, Finizola explained that Clave’s debt from the Credix credit pool is collateralized by the receivables from the borrowers who take out loans. However, technically the debt is unsecured, meaning the debtor secures the loan with its reputation and good financial situation and does not pledge any assets whose value would backstop the loan in case of a default. Although unsecured lending is standard in traditional finance, it is becoming increasingly popular on DeFi lending protocols.
