The People’s SCE, a decentralized organization powered by the eCredits Blockchain, has announced a partnership with gemstone trading market leader, The Natural Gem, to tokenize its €5 million Royal Portfolio on the eCredits blockchain. This collaboration also introduces the Habsburg Gemstone Token, developed in collaboration with Habsburg Fine Arts, which is backed by real, untreated, color gemstones.
The Director of Habsburg Fine Arts, HIRH Sandor Habsburg-Lothringen, expressed his excitement about merging the world’s oldest tangible asset with one of the most modern investment instruments. He believes that this initiative brings gemstones onto the blockchain and into the 21st century, providing portfolio diversification with transparency and flexibility.
The Royal Portfolio offered by The Natural Gem includes valuable gemstones such as emerald, ruby, and a Kashmir sapphire. The portfolio is periodically revalued by court experts, and as its value increases, the sale price in EUR rises while the Habsburg Gemstone Token (GEM) price remains constant. This leads to a steady increase in the intrinsic value of GEM. Investors can purchase the token on the Habsburg Fine Arts trading platform and the eCredits Wallet, providing multiple avenues for acquisition.
Investing in gemstones has numerous benefits that have been proven over thousands of years. Gemstones are small, portable, and hold a high concentration of value. They have a reliable history as an asset, and their beauty makes them easily passable from one generation to another. Additionally, gemstones have shown a consistent increase in value due to high demand, declining mine yields, and active auctions.
Bernhard Blaha, CEO of The People’s SCE, expressed his satisfaction with the partnership, stating that the collaboration with The Natural Gem aims to make gemstone investments accessible to any investor, regardless of their wealth. Through the power of blockchain technology and the eCredits Ecosystem, they aspire to democratize gemstone investments and provide a lucrative market opportunity for a wider audience. Blaha sees blockchain as the great equalizer for people from all walks of life.
This project is made possible thanks to the cooperation of eCredits and SimplyTokenized, a software company that provides custom tokenization solutions. Simply Tokenized facilitates the token creation process, offers technical support for smart contract implementation, and helps companies attract investors.
