About CEDEX

CEDEX is the first ever Certified Blockchain
Based Diamond Exchange
CEDEX.com is a global exchange that focuses on bridging the gap between the traditional diamond industry and the innovative financial markets. With its extensive industry knowledge, CEDEX wants to engineer a ground-breaking change – enabling people to liquidate and invest in diamonds like any other financial asset, in a transparent and secure way.

The CEDEX Exchange enables anyone to invest in individual diamonds, shares of a high-value stone or shares in a basket of diamonds (ETF).
Traders can have full confidence in buying and selling, even without prior knowledge of diamond trading.
Thanks to the DEX, our machine learning algorithm, and blockchain technology that rates a diamond’s asking price, the value of any diamond listed on the Exchange is completely transparent; liquid because it creates a two-sided market by enhancing both the supply and demand and standardized because CEDEX creates a unique benchmark value, rate and smart contract for every stone.

The Technology

DEX – The Intelligence behind CEDEX
The DEX, our proprietary machine-learning algorithm, has been created to bring transparency and coherency to the diamond financial market. The DEX comprises three main elements: the gem composite, which represents a diamond’s gemological perfection; the parallel composite indicating the rarity of a diamond category and the indices composite, giving potential traders market directions for the diamond industry. Diamonds are onboarded to CEDEX and classified by categories. The DEX has been designed to incorporate artificial neural network technology using all available diamond data.
Try the DEX for yourself!
See how easy, open and transparent it is to invest or trade in diamonds through CEDEX. Our DEX alpha version will provide you a theoretical price for your diamond and rate it by its relative market value on the spot!
(for round stones 0.3-, 0.5-, 0.7- and 1- carats. Once the DEX is fully developed it will be able to provide pricing information for all types/sizes of diamonds)

CEDEX Coin – Powering The CEDEX Exchange

The CEDEX Exchange will be powered by the CEDEX Coin. This ERC-20-compatible token will be traded over the public Ethereum blockchain and will allow users to purchase diamonds on CEDEX, transforming their assets into diamonds. Use of the CEDEX Coin will be driven by trading volumes generated on the CEDEX Exchange and the demand of the diamond ecosystem. The CEDEX Coin will be listed on major exchanges (to be announced) and will be transferable to other cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies.
The CEDEX Coin will be the only means of payment used on the CEDEX exchange.
The amount of CEDEX Coin will be limited. Any coins offered for sale that are not sold will be burned.
