CEDEX: The First Certified Blockchain-based Diamond Exchange

They may be a girl’s best friend, but diamond dealers and investors are going to love CEDEX, the first certified diamond exchange to be built using blockchain technology. The diamond market has an estimated turnover of $80 billion per year, yet investor demand accounts for only 5% of that – the rest is consumer demand from the jewelry industry. Historically, diamonds have been a consistent store of value, just like gold and other precious metals, so why aren’t more investors looking at diamonds as an investment vehicle? Despite their total market value, diamonds are not considered a financial asset class and, as such, there is no established market for their trade, unlike traditional commodities. CEDEX aims to change all of that with the launch of the first certified blockchain-based exchange that will tokenize and transform diamonds into a tradeable asset. […]
