Background Information on CDRX
CDRX was created as an innovative FinTech company whose sole goal was to serve as a bridge between the crypto space and the traditional financial markets. It would accomplish this goal by coming up with a tokenization solution as well as by developing an exchange.
At the moment, the company is creating a platform that will be used to tokenize native bonds, existing bonds, equities issuance, as well as be in a position to bring the global securities market to the blockchain platform. The platform is grounded on a new product that is being referred to as CDRs (Crypto Depository Receipts).
It is a platform that blends what is already known of the American Depository Receipts with the latest state-of-the-art blockchain technologies. The CDRs will be issued by custodians using smart contracts and will be backed by the underlying securities. This will mean that the CDR holders will have the same rights as those assigned to the securities purchased using traditional methods.
