Jacques Voorhees explains how Icecap is using Ethereum-based NFTs to represent ownership of individual diamonds, a deep dive into the diamond industry, and much more.
My guest today is my friend Jacques Voorhees, the Founder and CEO of Icecap. Icecap is a Blockchain-Based Diamond Marketplace. Icecap uses Ethereum-based, non-fungible tokens to represent ownership of individual diamonds. Jacques Voorhees is a serial entrepreneur, prior to Icecap, founded and was the past president of Polygon, one of the most disruptive initiatives to hit the diamond industry in the last fifty years. We discussed the history of diamonds as an alternative asset, how diamonds are graded, what is an investment grade diamond, what is Icecap, the legal connection between the diamond and the token and much more.
Coingaming was formed when one Australian professional poker player, who knew first-hand the importance of fun, fast and fair gaming, met two Estonian tech whizzes who just so happened to be vanguards of Bitcoin. From there, Coingaming’s ecosystem of brands and products evolved, breathing new life into the gaming industry.
Now with 400+ people, Coingaming is behind some of the world’s most innovative crypto gaming brands and is on a mission to further awareness of cryptocurrencies across the globe.
