Existence of such a platform will enable authentic and trustworthy diamond transactions hence those with this kind of asset will have the utmost interest in getting involved. The advisers have the required experience to push the project t the top. The market which the project is aiming to explore has not been exploited yet meaning its enormous and allot of benefit will derived from it. Creating of awareness has been implemented and will yield positive results. The accurate value will be established so that no one feels cheated.
Risks and disadvantages
The business model is limited to only diamonds which doesn't provide for diversification of the project in terms of development
Diamonds are valuable stones and are owned by quite a number of people this means that their s already a defined market base ready to be exploited especially now that no competition is available this will make the project get monopoly in the market. A more outright press team should be used to attain maximum results. Their is higher probability for prosperity in this project.
A good and reasonably well thought-out idea of creating a diamond market through an efficient and transparent blockchain system, as well as tokenization of the entire process, can solve many issues existing in this industry.
Risks and disadvantages
There is no proof that the physical diamonds exist and that they are tied to the company’s tokens via blockchain.
The project has all it takes to succeed, if all the announced features are properly implemented and if there is a proof that diamonds are tied to the company’s cryptocurrency.
Project already has certificate. Brings together diamond holders and traders. Two-sides diamond trading market. Allows traders easily participate in diamond investments. Provides delivery through diamond-smart contract as well as theoretical diamond price and rate it by market value on spot. Good traffic statistics shows interest in the question.
Risks and disadvantages
Non transparency of diamonds industry. 25% bonuses on pre-sale make it a bit slippery. Project is making bet only on one asset. At the same time similar projects provide several investment possibilities.
Finding opportunity gaps between traditional diamond industry and new technologies. Global recognition of the diamonds as an investment measure specially among middle class which is the majority of population worldwide and 80 bn USD annual turnover of diamonds market protrude as weighty argumentation to give it a try.
It is said in the Whitepaper that "CEDEX will be connected with all the major global diamond manufacturers". So investing in this project can be very profitable.
Risks and disadvantages
It is said in the video that the diamond industry is not transparent and one cannot invest in diamonds now. But if this industry is not transparent now, will it cooperate with CEDEX? How many dimond holders are supposed to be involved?
I have doubts... Maybe it has sense to connect with the team and clarify the goals and risks.
It allow liquidity and also provides a platform to acquire valuable products. the press team is remarkable. the nature of statistics is promising. Provides transparency to the diamond market. The project is dealing with a very valuable product hence ensuring the value of investment and the token. The system helps calculate the value of the diamond and its estimated price. The presence of smart contracts and a block chain ensure transparency and safety.
Risks and disadvantages
One crypto currency limits diversity. The project will face competition from other crypto currencies trading in gold and diamond.High bonuses affect token value. In case the diamond is not delivered the company might have to account for it.
The project is not the first of its kind in the market and will have to enhance the marketing strategies to ensure it obtains market share, its however a very efficient project its capabilities guarantee its success.
