GEMERA is a crypto-token backed by Colombian emeralds that provides a mixture of secure digital assets managed by blockchain and physical Colombian emeralds stored in security vaults of safe deposit box companies.The Project offers an innovative and modern investment opportunity, more profitable, accessible, democratic and transparent, by connecting producers and investors through the advantages granted by the blockchain technology, producing in that manner win-win benefits for these two actors.
The project will also develop a blockchain-based marketplace platform to store the information of the emeralds that back the GEMERA tokens in a decentralized way.
As GEMERA works hand in hand with emerald producers, it is also part of its politics to partner only with companies with good environmental practices in the extraction of gemstones and with corporate social responsibility standards that seek for the integrity of their workers and the communities nearby, helping them and other stakeholders to improve their quality of life and to open their path towards sustainable development. The project uses part of the project funds to achieve this purpose.

Interesting project. Most of the ones we see out there are gold backed projects but this is the first I seen about Emerald being the backed asset. Not an expert in this field but definitely will be keeping an eye on the development of this project.

Having an asset-backed token is always an interesting investment proposition, but also almost always full of difficult pitfalls - compliance, execution, funding etc. Requires good understanding of the Emerald market, which will prove to be a hard thing to do.

The tokenizing of speculative commodities such as diamonds and gems is something that is seemingly ideal however requires a lot of expertise in this field which I am not confident this team has.

Good team. Solid white paper with lots of business, finance and technical information. Loved the idea of GEMERA Token Projection. Liked the MVP. It would be good to see how Gemera team will get Emerald suppliers on-board and why they will come on-board allowing emerald to buy using GEMERA token which might have volatility issue. How team is planning to keep GEMERA token floating in the ecosystem? Will update the ratings after heard from the team.

Gemera has a strong concept. I appreciate the in-depth information provided in the whitepaper. MVP is quite competent. I am curious as to how the project will proceed upon the rise and fall of the tokens.

The Team looks solid with the Founders Jorge Peláez, Nicolás Revollo and Nataly León all being Crypto Blockchain Savy and Degreed Engineers as well. The CMO Danny Arteaga is a former Professor and Communications Specialist and was Editor of a Socially Concience Online Journal Popular in Columbia. The Blockchain Developer Alejandro Baracaldo is an experienced Computer Engineer with Technology Expereience. Combined with the highly experienced Blockchain Expert Ian Scarffe I believe the Team has the ability to deliver a decent product in an area which I believe to be strong which is the Emerald Market. They have a strong Vision and well thought out plan for implementing their Vision. I believe this Blockchain Project holds potential.

Interesting concept by having Emerald as the backing asset instead of the traditional gold. Will need a thorough understanding of the Colombian.

Asset-backed token again, as other projects in gold, diamonds,....tangible goods. Asset-token management could be the next short term step in a decentralized system using Blockchain. In this case emerals, with a total worth assets estimated of more than USD 250 trillion. Nice to see actions as well in environmental and social responsibility (3% of the whole revenues). Experimented team in the emeral business and producers involved. Advisors OK. KYC not conducted yet.
Update: KYC passed.

I have gone through the White paper.
Their product is solid I must say. :)
The team has to do lot more here dealing with foreign authorities for emeralds.
Investors can redeem their tokens in Emeralds. This is definitely a great ICO. I love it!
Good luck team!

This is an interesting niche financial blockchain enterprise. They have a good team with good experience, great advisors and respectable partners
The vision is intriguing and the token is backed by a real world gemstone.
This project would take advantage of the blockchain to cut down on middlemen streamlining the process and pushing the financial sector further into the blockchain.
