Case studies on transparency and provenance

Learn how we have helped our partners surface and converge richer asset information, contributing to the marketplaces where transparency matters most.

Everledger with JD.com and GIA Case Study

JD.com and Everledger successfully implemented an inter-blockchain collaboration that, combined with GIA’s long-established diamond grading expertise, empowers JD.com to increase trust and transparency and enhance the digital e-commerce experience for consumers.

Everledger with GIA and Chow Tai Fook Case Study

Together with renowned jewellery group Chow Tai Fook and GIA, Everledger has launched a paperless solution delivering diamond grading reports on the blockchain to consumers. This digital platform provides the same independent, accurate and unbiased analysis that GIA has been providing since 1931, but now with greater convenience and traceability. And because it uses the blockchain, it’s based on information that is entirely secure, private and unalterable.

Our story with Pact and Moyo Gemstones

Together with Pact (under the Pact Mines to Markets program or PactM2M), as well as ANZA Gems and Nineteen48, Everledger is part of Moyo Gemstones, an ethical gemstone collaboration born in Tanzania. Under Moyo Gemstones, our partner PactM2M has established a strong relationship with the Tanzanian Women Miners Association (TAWOMA), to verify the legality of mining and trading and confirm responsible practices of mining. Moyo Gemstones uses our blockchain solution for coloured gemstones – the Provenance Proof Blockchain developed for Gübelin Gem Lab – to track the gemstones mined by the miners in TAWOMA from source.

Everledger and Gübelin

Gübelin Gem Lab partnered with us to launch the Provenance Proof Blockchain to improve traceability in the industry. Through the blockchain technology of this platform, coupled with Gübelin’s Emerald Paternity Test, it’s now possible to evidence a stone’s birthplace and trace its journey across the value chain. The Emerald Paternity Test uses DNA-based, nano-sized particles encoded with the mine’s information to tackle the issue of a stone’s origin. Applied on the gemstone at the source, it enables the full traceability of a stone’s birthplace throughout its lifetime via immutable records on the blockchain.

Everledger with Avery Dennision and wine trade network

Together with partner Avery Dennison, Everledger has developed an end-to-end traceability and provenance tracking solution for the wine industry. This partnership, launching first with ‘Appellation Earth’ wines from Napa Valley by US-based wine négociant Wine Trade Network, combines Avery Dennison’s intelligent label solutions with Everledger’s blockchain-based platform. 

Everledger with the U.S. Department of Energy and Ford

The United States Department of Energy opened a public call last year to support increased sustainability in the industry. As a result, Everledger has partnered with Ford Motor Company to create a digital identity pilot programme for EV batteries. Using Everledger’s blockchain platform, stakeholders along the supply chain can keep track of each battery’s location, condition and health score, with a view to extending its useful life, generating less waste and avoiding leakage into the environment. The first phase of this project is partially funded by the Department of Energy with the goal of giving batteries a bespoke digital identity (or ‘battery passport’) (read more on blockchain battery recycling).
