18sep18:3020:00DiamondCoinThe Official Launch!

Ethereum Meetup Zürich

Event Details

It’s a great pleasure to invite you all to a very personal meetup: The official presentation of DiamondCoin, and a preview of the DiamondCoin Mobile App. It is the first event of our campaign to promote the “DiamondCoin Platform License“ token that will provide the means to launch DiamondCoin on a global level.

DiamondCoin is the globally first Crypto-Currency backed by Diamonds. As many of you may know, I’ve been working with my team on the DiamondCoin project since early 2015. We have been in stealth mode during this time. Given the progress we made, it is time now for the next step, and I’d like to share this moment with all of you.

During our meetup, we will present the official DiamondCoin Whitepaper, and explain in detail the mechanics of DiamondCoin. In a second part, we will give you a preview of our mobile app, and we will conclude with an open discussion in the plenum.

DiamondCoin Vision:

It is my deep conviction that to realize the full potential of Ethereum, we need a stable transaction currency on top of it; one that is not mainly used for speculation purposes by those who can afford to speculate, but who provides stability and a means to find a refuge from political pressure or inflation to the great many poor in the world.

Thus we create DiamondCoin, and build the DiamondCoin Platform. Our goal is that everyone on Earth with a smartphone and internet connection can use our mobile app to:

  • buy and sell DiamondCoins
  • pay with DiamondCoins
  • save up in DiamondCoins, and then redeem them for diamonds (given sufficient DiamondCoin balance)

Join us at the meetup to learn more about how DiamondCoin makes diamonds fungible, how we implement checks and balances with the best partners in the diamond industry, and what role the Ethereum blockchain plays in the setup.
