CORRECTING and REPLACING Pure Diamond Block Chain Technology - Jewelry Industry's New Groundbreaking Innovation

Please replace the release dated August 22, 2018, with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

The corrected release reads:

PURE DIAMOND BLOCK CHAIN TECHNOLOGY - JEWELRY INDUSTRY'S NEW GROUNDBREAKING INNOVATION

The global jewelry industry has its eyes on a new Japanese innovation - lab-grown diamonds which are chemically, physically and optically identical to natural diamonds.

Pure Diamond Lab, a Tokyo-based company, is able to cultivate diamonds which have identical qualities of natural-occurring ones and therefore qualify to be certified by the GIA (Gemological Institution of America). These diamonds are grown in a controlled environment of the company’s laboratories using pure carbon material, giving birth to a breed of ‘flawless’ lab-grown diamonds which exhibit optical properties superior to natural ones. Diamonds can be cultivated in a wide spectrum of colors including ones that do not occur naturally, which could instantly overturn the market of, for example, extremely rare red and blue diamonds.

A major distinguishing factor that sets apart Pure Diamond Co. Ltd. from their competitors is their development of a Block Chain technology for the diamond market. Information on cultivation, refinement and appraisal of lab-grown diamond is collected and digitalized, creating a profile that is available to the end consumer, thus increasing transparency and enhancing the retail experience. It just so happens that the CTO of the Pure Diamond Block Chain project, Mr. Jun Kawasaki is the famous ’White Hat’ hacker that solved Coincheck’s 500 million NEM hack in January. Mr. Kawasaki believes that the Pure Diamond Block Chain development project is “the correct way to use Block Chain,” and Pure Diamond Lab’s producer Mr. Hideyuki Abe adds the technology “gives every diamond a story.”

Lab-grown diamonds such as those cultivated by Pure Diamond Lab are also reshaping the global diamond industry to become more sustainable and ethical. Cultivating diamonds in a laboratory environment relieves the pressure of demand on diamond mines, which is a threat to the environment. Moreover, Pure Diamond Block Chain technology helps prevent the distribution of so-called ‘blood diamonds,’ i.e. diamonds mined in war zones and sold to finance further conflicts.

To expand the lab-grown diamond project, the company plans to use the ICO of Pure Diamond Coin (PDC), a cryptocurrency secured by Pure Diamond Farm Singapore to fund equipment and R&D. Furthermore, the company is currently in the final stages of intellectual property registration, which is expected to further strengthen their foothold in the lab-grown diamond industry. The aim is to change the future of the diamond industry step by step, which makes the Pure Diamond Block Chain project an exciting one to watch out for.

The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
