D1 is an ICO blockchain platform for creating and launching diamond-backed tokens called D1 Coins.

D1 Coin is a cryptocurrency that is pegged to the value of authentic natural diamonds. Buying a diamond-backed coin gives a person ownership over a fraction of a real diamond. Each diamond is valued using a proprietary pricing algorithm, the D1 Matrix, to obtain an unbiased and fair diamond price. By translating traditional industry parameters of shape, carat, cut and clarity, the algorithm determines the ratio used by crypto investors to exchange their D1 tokens for selected diamonds.

Not all cryptocurrencies can serve as a good store of value and means of exchange. Their value is ever-changing being subject to considerable volatile price movements. Considering entering the crypto space, investors search for a secure alternative to protect their wealth.

To solve the liquidity issue and protect cryptocurrency investors from adverse market movements, D1 Mint Ltd. turned to PixelPlex to help them address these shortcomings.

Token Liquidity Management

Asset-backed tokens are worth exactly what they are backed by. The D1 platform allows investors to place their funds within a fungible, stable currency and thus own a material value. A share of the world’s diamond reserve, digitally represented in the form of a cryptographic token, is a lot more resistant to devaluation than USD. While the tokens’ dollar price may drop, the exchange rate for stored diamonds always remains fixed.

D1 enables users to easily utilize their diamond-based tokens, store their wealth or exchange them for actual stones from the D1 Reserve. Built on the Ethereum blockchain, the platform incorporates all basic blockchain capabilities like high transaction speed, greater privacy, lower fees, and the ability to take control over the investments, which also helps solve the liquidity issue.

Having such an asset-backed token, investors looking to enter the crypto market can have a peace of mind that comes from diamonds’ price stability with cryptocurrency’s flexibility.
