How does Multichain achieve Delivery Vesusu Payment among assets technically?

Does it use multi-sig? How is it safe to exchange assets?

The exchange of assets happens in a single transaction which is treated atomically, i.e. the transaction is only valid if both sides of the exchange happen (because otherwise the input/output asset quantities would not balance). Separately from this, you can use multisig if you want, but it's optional for the basic DvP mechanism.
