D1 is named after M1, a term from economics, which refers to the base monetary supply, i.e. all the cash and equivalent circulating in the economy. D1 represents the diamonds circulating in the economy, which have an estimated market value of USD 1 trillion. In one US Dollar you own a small fraction of the total M1 of USD 3.62 trillion; in the D1 Coin you own a fraction of institutionally-certified, securely vaulted stock of high-grade diamonds. The D1 Coin is a diamond-backed token, with each D1 Coin pegged to the value of a fraction of an authentic, natural diamond, a proxy for ownership of a share of the world’s diamond reserve that has proven to be 100x more resilient to devaluation than US Dollar.
