The Motif was launched at the University of Pittsburgh.

The OS which powers this phone: Zippie OS works along with Android. The makers of this OS had recently launched their own digital token called ZIPT.

Blockchain Now Invades Diamond Industry!

Meanwhile, De Beers, the leading diamond manufacturers and sellers have announced that they will now use blockchain for tracking diamonds.

This way, for the first time, blockchain will be used in the diamond industry.

CEO of De Beers Group Bruce Cleaver said,

“This is a significant breakthrough made achievable by the close engagement of the pilot participants who share our commitment to industry progress and innovation…”

De Beers has created a blockchain based tracking system called Tracr, which assigns a unique ‘Global Diamond ID’ to every piece of diamond.

Anyone can track the journey of a diamond from mines to the showroom, using Tracr as it will have diamond’s main characteristics: carat, clarity, and colour stored.

Very soon, Tracr would be available to all diamond traders, merchants, manufacturers who wish to use blockchain for more transparency, and more clarity.

De Beers has collaborated with 5 leading diamond manufacturers: Diacore, Diarough, KGK Group, Rosy Blue NV and Venus Jewel for this initiative.

This is a significant development, considering that diamonds are prone to fraud and scams, and it is very difficult to track the authenticity of any diamond, especially today when plastic and lab-grown diamonds are threatening to demolish this industry.
