LakeDiamond launches an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to increase its production capacities of lab-grown diamonds for high-tech industrial applications. Powered by Swissquote, LakeDiamond’s ICO is the first ever to be powered by an established banking group.
LakeDiamond tokens are issued following the technical standard used for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. LakeDiamond is issuing tokens worth 60 million Swiss francs in total.
LakeDiamond plans to use the money raised within the ICO to ramp up its production capacities by buying 50 further reactors. Minimum purchase consists of 60 LakeDiamond tokens (LKD) which is equivalent to 33 Swiss francs.
During the pre-sale from October 22 to December 11, 2018, the bank clients can benefit from a bonus: when buying 10 tokens, they receive one free token until 4 million Swiss francs are globally raised. During the pre-sale as well as during the following public ICO (from mid-January to mid-February 2019), 1 LKD equals CHF 0.55. After the ICO, the conversion rate will fluctuate based on demand for tokens and/or diamonds as well as the performance of the diamond reactors operated by LakeDiamond.
After the bank sale LakeDiamond ICO will be open to the general public in early 2019..

About LakeDiamond

LakeDiamond is a Swiss company that grows diamonds and transforms them for high-value industrial applications. These diamonds, manufactured at our local laboratory, are ultra-pure – at least 50 times purer than mined diamonds.

Purity is essential because the purer a diamond is, the greater its versatility and performance in industrial applications. The exceptional properties of diamonds – their hardness, transparency and superior thermal resistance – make them an advantageous alternative to the materials currently used in many industrial applications.

Diamonds have the power to revolutionize energy management, telecommunications, medicine and computer science – driving considerable improvements in efficiency, productivity and value.

We have the proprietary growth and transformation technology to fully capture the potential of ultra-pure diamonds. Today, we transform diamonds into micromechanical parts for the Swiss watch-making industry. We are also developing diamond-based lasers and have embarked on research into diamond transistors. Our long-term vision extends to R&D on diamond-based semiconductors and biotech applications.

The definitions below can help you better understand the rest of this document:

Diamond growing: The process of producing physical diamonds in a reactor. This controlled process is performed in laboratories. It is described below and in our Business Presentation.

Industrial customer: Our final customer, or the end customer who purchases products from our online shop or directly from one of our sales representatives. Products will initially be limited to diamond plates for high-tech applications, as described in our Business Presentation.

LKD token owner: An Ethereum address that can send and receive time-based tokens (LKDs). For the purposes of this document, we use the term “LKD owner” to refer to addresses instead of physical owners (i.e., the individual who holds the private keys). All authorized Ethereum addresses will be identified via KYC procedures. We use the term “owner” to describe the physical owner of LKDs and the Ethereum address.

LakeDiamond Roadmap

  • 2007

  • Our starting point.
    Pascal Gallo earns his PhD on crystal growth in collaboration with Albert Fert, Nobel Prize 2007.
  • 2010

  • EPFL R&D.
    He joins Eli Kapon’s group at EPFL, develops diamond-based lasers and breaks a world record for laser energy transmission. Disappointed about not finding good supplies of ultra-pure diamonds he decides to grow his own.
  • 2011

  • Reactor design and manufacture.
    Pascal Gallo meets Theophile Mounier, Christophe Provent and David Rats. They develop a Single Crystal CVD reactor to grow ultra-pure diamonds and create a business plan.
  • 2015

  • LakeDiamond SA is incorporated.
  • Read More
  • 2017

  • From start-up to industrial scale production.
    Alex Kummerman joins the team with the plan to leapfrog from start-up to industrial scale production capacity. He organizes the strategy to launch an ICO and brings along Romain Braud in the process.
  • 2018

  • LakeDiamond ICO.
    World premiere: LakeDiamond wins the support of a Swiss bank, Swissquote, for its ICO.
  • 2019

  • Successful completion of LakeDiamond Bank sale in partnership with Swissquote; start of the ICO, with a focus on private institutional actors.
