- Exclusive interview. GEMERA - a global project that issues crypto-assets backed by Certified Colombian Emeralds BASE.INFO team has interviewed Jorge Peláez the CEO of GEMERA project. Sep 29, 2018
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.
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.
GEMERA has focused its efforts on the early stage of the project to create a model, along with gemologists and experts in fine Colombian emeralds, with all the necessary criteria to assess and determine the quality of the emeralds, in a clear and transparent manner. That way an investor does not need to be a great connoisseur in the emeralds field or hire expensive specialists when wanting to make an investment decision. In other words, GEMERA has a reliable method to guarantee the quality of the gemstones, as well as the adequate price according to the established criteria.
