Blockchain startup Diamond Standard raises $30 million to expand its production capacity

Diamond Standard, the blockchain startup and regulated diamond commodities firm, announced on September 14 that the company has raised more than $30 million in order to continue growing its international safe diamond trading network.

Left Lane Capital, a venture capital company located in New York, and Horizon Kinetics, an investment advisory firm that is independently owned and run, were the companies that took the lead in this round. Along with a number of other strategic and angel investors, Gaingels, a group that invests in startups, and, an online platform for investing in startups, were both part of this round.

According to the press release issued by Diamond Standard, tokenizing diamonds opens up the rare material as an asset class. This provides individual and institutional investors with a new place to deposit their capital. The company has been granted permission to do business in Bermuda as an issuer and seller of tokens and digital assets, and it creates tokens based on Ethereum that are backed by actual diamonds. On exchanges for cryptocurrencies, one may potentially sell this.

The company’s goal is to make diamonds an investable asset along with stocks, index funds, and cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. They plan to do this by creating a safe and easy-to-use platform and offering tokenized investments to make diamonds easier to invest in.

The founder and CEO of Diamond Standard, Cormac Kinney, is positive about the future of the company: “Following 20% returns last year, the Diamond Standard Coin has continued to generate a positive return this year, while the S&P 500 is down 14% and bitcoin is down 50%. Investors need a new uncorrelated asset class, and this capital will enable us to increase capacity and expand our offerings,” he said.
