Bitcoin Difficulty Derivative (BDD) is a set of three distinct linked contracts, B.MINE, B.SELL, and B.EXCH, that allows users to speculate on the future of the Bitcoin Network Difficulty.

B.MINE acts as a 5 GH/s (5 GigaHash per second) Mining Bond
B.SELL is a bet that buyers will overvalue B.MINE
B.EXCH is the contract that can be purchased to receive a BDD Pair (1 B.MINE and 1 B.SELL)

Users that purchase B.EXCH will have it bought-back from them and will be issued a BDD Pair (one B.MINE and one B.SELL).

Please be sure to read the entire BDD contract under 'Fund Reports' or on the Bitcointalk thread!

Updates will be posted most frequently to the BDD Bitcointalk thread at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=430137


B.EXCH exists to provide a means through which B.MINE and B.SELL can be distributed into the market in equal amounts without being sold directly by the Manager. B.MINE and B.SELL must always be issued in equal amounts, and remain in equal amounts outstanding, to ensure that each B.MINE contract is backed by the funds of a B.SELL contract.

A user can purchase B.EXCH from the Fund Manager for the NAV/U (Net Asset Value / Unit) plus 3% on the Market. The 3% surcharge breaks down into 2% as a Management Fee paid to the Manager, .4% to cover the Exchange Fee assessed by Havelock Investments on all sales on the site, and .6% back to the fund itself. The Fund Manager may issue an unlimited number of B.EXCH into the Market via direct sales to users on the Market, but only at the NAV/U + 3%. Once B.EXCH is purchased by a user, the exchange will automatically buy back the EXCH contract(s) at zero value and issue one B.MINE contract and one B.SELL contract (a BDD Pair) for each B.EXCH contract purchased. The user can then sell or hold one or both of the contracts.

The Period NAV/U is calculated at the beginning of each Period, which begins after a Difficulty change. The Manager will also provide a Daily Published NAV/U on the Bitcointalk thread. The NAV/U is calculated by dividing the total assets of the fund by the total number of issued contract pairs (number of B.SELL or B.MINE issued).

Looking like diff will change Sunday night / Monday morning, so it's looking like SELL dividend will be issued Monday if the current increase trend keeps up.
