Carats.io is tokenizing the world’s most expensive commodity — diamonds. The platform is a fluid process to exchange diamonds’ in digital value with a real-world usage and exposure to the diamond and jewellery industries.
The team has built the world’s first financial market for diamonds after years of research which has unearthed an untapped $250 Billion Market. They have therefore issued a 100 per cent asset-backed token with the most tradable certified diamonds in the market.
“It is based on a state of the art proprietary algorithm that is free of human interference and has 98.2% statistical significance,” Gabriel Diamant, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Carats.io unveiled. “The CARAT is an ERC-20 token because it satisfies our need at this stage while we build our own technology which will enable diamantaires and jewellers to trade diamonds on the blockchain.”
Diamant further explained the company at the moment has 750 thousand diamonds signed on the blockchain through a collaboration with IDEX, the second largest B2B diamond platform in the world.
For the next five years, CARAT is striving to get on the Diamond Financial Index (DFX) which is the building blocks of every financial diamonds market in the world. This, according to the co-founder, will facilitate the DFX to act as the official index while the CARAT token operates as the underlying asset.
This was Diamant’s message to the CARAT community:
“The diamond market is $80 billion annually, and the financial part of it is only 1% today. While in parallel commodities the ratio is at least 1 to 3 for the financial market that is $250 billion in untapped markets. Currently, algorithmic pricing is non-existing and it happens manually through diamantaire and a magnifying glass. We’re bringing a top to bottom revolution to the market and for that, we need the people!”
