Initial Diamond Reserve
Exchange D1 Coins for diamonds
“Diamonds have been a great store of value for centuries. Now with the advent of new digital technologies diamonds enter into a new era that will see the value of natural diamonds reach new heights.”
“Tokenizing an asset is an easy concept. Making the back end work, so that it is is a real, audited, collateralized asset is the hard part. It is even harder if it is a non-uniform asset such as diamonds. D1, as a spin off from a successful Asian asset management business, has the skills to do this and have done it.”
“Diamonds historically were much more rare than gold, more valuable and unique. By taking diamonds on blockchain and enabling fractional ownership D1 Coins will revolutionise the diamond market and create a whole new asset class.”

D1 coin ecosystem
The ecosystem of D1 Coin has a few main parties, namely Coin Buyers, D1 Mint, D1 Reserve, and Diamond Suppliers. The D1 Mint and Diamond Suppliers are overseen and appointed by D1 Reserve, which also acts as a custodian by holding the diamond inventory. D1 Mint issues D1 Coins to Coin Buyers, who can purchase and redeem diamonds from D1 Mint. D1 Mint functions as the central party in the D1 ecosystem coordinating the flow of D1 Coins, diamonds, and fiat currency.
Issues new D1 Coins for each new diamond and control the overall D1 Coin Supply.

WHY TOKENIZE DIAMONDS?
Combining complementary strengths of diamonds and blockchain to overcome
limitations of each asset class.
Each diamond is unique, value can differ across appraisals
Diamond sales are cumbersome and often results in a markdown in value
The high unit price of diamonds is a barrier to potential buyers
Each token is identical
Transfers are quick, with low transaction fees
Large number of units can be minted at a low price
Most cryptocurrencies are valued purely by market forces, resulting in high volatility
Diamonds have displayed price stability and long term appreciation for thousands of years
THE 4“Y”S OF D1 COIN
D1 Coin upholds the 4“Y”s to provide users with the highest level of transparency and security
4 use cases of D1 coin
The value of D1 Coins are a function of both its fractional value of a diamond and crypto market forces, with the fractional value acting as a price floor.
NEW CRYPTO USERS
D1 Coin provides a safer option to participate in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space, while protecting users’ wealth. Backed by diamonds, D1 Coins have a clear intrinsic value.
STORE OF WEALTH
The price of diamonds have appreciated steadily over the past century, and users who seek to enjoy similar capital gains can now do so in a simple, private and secure way with D1 Coins.
CURRENT CRYPTO USERS
Users can temporarily “crypto-out” to D1 Coin, which has lower price volatility, if they are apprehensive of market swings. Converting to fiat currency is time consuming, cumbersome and incurs transaction fees.
BETTER MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE
With greater price stability, D1 Coin functions as a better unit of account. D1 Coin provides a more reliable measure of the value of goods and services.
