The blockchain space has seen an explosion of development in the last couple of years. Industries are being disrupted in huge ways, from banking and finance to the Internet of Things and supply chain management.
Every so often, thought leaders and developers from various blockchain projects come together at conferences to share ideas and build relationships. CEDEX was fortunate enough to participate in one such conference recently called the Blockchain Economic Forum (BEF) 2018, held in Singapore. The goal of the conference was to bridge the gap between blockchain and the traditional economy, aligning development goals with the greater benefit of society.
BEF was an incredible event, with brilliant and passionate speakers sharing their insights on where the field is headed in the coming years. There were cross-disciplinary panels on interesting topics including the genetics of the blockchain evolution, world model, AI, VR, molecular biology of DNA biohacking, and much more.
Attendees of the event included entrepreneurs, investors, journalists, and bloggers. The CEDEX team met with many attendees, spreading awareness about the project and fostering new relationships. As the event was wrapping up, awards were given out to some of the outstanding projects. CEDEX was among the winners, with CEO Saar Levi and business development leader Boaz Hilel being recognized as crowd favorites and earning the Audience Award.
To be given recognition with so many other outstanding projects and speakers at the conference was special. CEDEX has a chance to do something truly revolutionary in transforming diamonds into a tradeable asset. For others to recognize that potential and to show their belief that CEDEX can live up to it is a good sign of things to come. With the March 16th CEDEX Coin Token Pre-Sale just around the corner, the excitement surrounding the project is gaining momentum every day.
CEDEX is the first ever Certified Blockchain Based Diamond Exchange.
The CEDEX project was founded by a team of professionals in technology (trading platforms and pricing engines), financial markets, and the diamond industry. The team’s focus is on bridging the gap between the traditional diamond industry and the innovative financial markets.
Through an innovative machine learning algorithm, the DEX, it will be possible to establish standardized and transparent pricing for non-fungible diamonds. As a consequence, it will become possible to fully unlock the potential of diamonds as a tradeable financial asset. The DEX will be used to give general investors confidence to buy and sell diamonds without the industry specific know-how that was necessary before.
CEDEX Coin is an ERC-20 compatible token on the Ethereum blockchain, and it will help to make the CEDEX exchange secure and decentralized. CEDEX Coin will facilitate all transactions on the exchange, from buying and selling diamond smart contracts to paying for services such as transportation and insurance for the diamonds themselves.
The token pre-sale begins March 16th, 2018. You can learn more about the project and register for the pre-sale at CEDEX.com. To get involved with the CEDEX community, you can join the discussion on Telegram and follow the project on Facebook and Twitter.
