For many years the diamond trade has been dominated by consumer retail which is estimated to account for over 95% of the market share globally. However, the focus of the market on business to business trade, alongside issues of transparency, lack of standardization and limited liquidity in the exchange markets, have restricted the public from making diamonds a legitimate investment.
One company looking to revolutionize the industry is CEDEX. Using ground-breaking blockchain based technology, CEDEX is designed to integrate the current diamond and crypto-financial market and open an entirely new and exciting asset class.
The team behind CEDEX boast a dazzling selection of specialists across many disciplines, including technology, finance, and diamond trading. Together they have created the world’s first transparent and secure public trading platform for diamonds set to revolutionize the diamond exchange market starting with the launch of the CEDEX Coin by way of a Token-Based ICO pre-sale on the 12th January 2018.
The potential of CEDEX has already been acknowledged by TechFinancials who have become a 90% majority shareholder. Apart from financing CEDEX, TechFinancials resources, workforce and experience will also be offered to assist it the growth of the enterprise.
It is worth looking at the team behind CEDEX to truly gauge its potential. Together they boast a wealth of knowledge and experience that would be hard to match in the diamond exchange industry at present.
