Everledger and the power of provenance
Kemp knew blockchain could be applied to provenance and now Everledger has 2.2 million diamonds on its blockchain which have been tracked from the mine to the retailer. She has also expanded into other products, adding other gem stones to the blockchain, as well as things like art, wine, watches, jewellery and even resources such as cobalt and lithium.
There’s an important role to be had in re-innovating existing products in markets to bring transparency and provenance and then also the tracking of their second lives. You can find out where something goes after it’s retired and what happens to the core components, which is so important when there is a war on waste,” she says.
