About GEMERA ICO

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

An Emerald offering is something I have yet to seen, definitely unique.

For me the white paper fails to address the key offering that is sold to investors, that tokens are 100% backed by assets. There is no understanding on how the insurance will work in the case of damage / theft, expected premiums and replacements in anycase. Further, the audit and insurance companies should be advised so an investor can undertake their own diligence into their integrity and ensure they are at arms-length.

No reasonable strategy can be identified in addressing market / price risks.

Also the reason for a 30m hardcap isn’t justified, its too high. All we know there is 1m of emeralds identified in Hong Kong.

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.

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