GEMERA

About:

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.
