Tokenization is an emerging and rapidly evolving area in the blockchain industry. As the market of Blockchain technology matures, the impact of cryptocurrencies, digital assets and tokenized assets on financial markets increases. However, the average consumer doesn’t understand what tokenization is or why it matters, let alone how the technology works or why the legal framework matters.
As a result, the growth of the tokenization is limited while the large opportunities and long-term economic growth implications remain.
Tiamonds will make tokenization known and accessible through three main tactics:
Tiamonds is a project by LCX with the goal to showcase the opportunities of tokenized assets, to educate consumers about tokenization by gamification and to create a community driven token economy. LCX is a regulated fintech company, registered as a compliant trusted technology service provider, and is conducting the token offering in accordance with the innovative Liechtenstein blockchain laws.
The Tiamonds project includes two key elements: Tokenized Diamonds called Tiamonds and a deflationary cryptocurrency called TIA Token.
Safely add diamonds to your investment portfolio via blockchain technology. Tiamonds are Non-Fungingle-Tokens (NFTs) to represent ownership of individual and real-world diamonds. Tiamonds NFTs are based on the Ethereum Blockchain and backed one on one by an individual diamond.
Tiamonds NFTs are enabled by LCX‘s regulatory framework and LCX’s advanced blockchain infrastructure. LCX is showcasing the functionality to connect the physical with the digital world.
Diamonds were formed billions of years ago, they are the hardest material on the planet and are often used by investors to diversify with a hard asset portfolio. Diamonds are available in many sizes, are portable and easy to store.
Due to the lack of fungibility diamonds are rarely used for asset diversification. Diamonds are non-fungible as they are always unique. There are several diamond grading systems that allow diamonds to be measured on specific metrics, e.g. color, clarity, carat, and cut-quality. Nevertheless each diamond will never be fully identical as there are attributes which are not standardizable .
Lack of fungibility is one of the main reasons why diamonds have a complex, illiquid and in-transparent marketplace. Diamond marketplaces are fragmented and include many middle men.
An asset backed token based on the Ethereum blockchain which represents a real-world individual diamond. The token is a 1-1 digital representative of the individual diamond. The digital token has been developed as a non-fungible token with the ERC-721 token standard in combination features known from the Liechtenstein Protocol technical white paper token standard developed and published by LCX.
Tiamonds issues tokenized Diamonds as NFTs called Tiamonds. Each NFT represents the ownership rights of one real-world Diamond.

Tiamonds are non-fungible tokens (NFT) representing the ownership rights of real-world Diamonds. Each Tiamond NFT is receiving TIA Tokens as rewards over time through the “Own to Earn Model”. TIA Token is a utility and governance token for the Tiamonds platform.
Tiamond NFTs and Tiamond TIA Token qualify as a token pursuant to Liechtenstein’s Act on Token and Trustworthy Technology Service Providers (TVTG).
Tiamond NFTs are intended to constitute a digital representation of the ownership rights of a real-world diamond while each token will be backed one on one by an individual diamond safely stored in a vault in the Principality of Liechtenstein. The Tokens might be classified pursuant to a non-official, alternative classification as a so-called ownership token. Pursuant to this token category, respective tokens include cases in which the token provides smart contract based ownership rights in assets. The purpose of such tokens is the transfer of rights of associated assets by transferring the token. Besides formal rights, the token may as well contain material objects. Ownership tokens do not provide any claims or relative rights against a counterparty. Rather, such tokens carry absolute rights in the form of property rights of the associated asset. The Tokens are a digital representation of ownership rights of real-world diamonds. The ownership of such NFT will be rewarded with TIA Token during a defined time period in an “Own to Earn Model”.
Tiamond TIA Tokens constitute utility tokens, while Tiamond TIA Tokens do not constitute any absolute or relative right at all. The utility of such tokens stands in its function to vote for project aspects as well as to pay for certain services offered within the platform. In total therefore, the Token does not unfold any obligations to other parties rather than feature the ecosystem-powering utility.
Tiamond Tokens do not constitute any absolute or relative rights at all. Tiamond tokens grant absolutely no promise of share in revenue, earnings or any other form of income. This token’s purpose is to act specifically as a utility with voucher-like functions and to facilitate the governance of the Tiamonds ecosystem.
Launched on the Ethereum Blockchain, Tiamond NFTs are an ERC721 compliant Smart Contract and Tiamond TIA Tokens are an ERC20 compliant Smart Contract. The smart contracts have been created and developed by LCX as the registered Token Generator in accordance with the Liechtenstein Blockchain Laws.
The smart contract has been audited by Certik and the smart contract audit has been published online.
Tiamond Tokens are programmed to interact with any ERC721 and ERC20 compliant wallet or application. Running on Ethereum makes this token simple to send and store.
Subject of this Token Offering will be the transfer of a unique, cryptographically secured ownership rights of a certain physical diamond (hereinafter ‘Tiamond Non-Fungible-Token’ or ‘Tiamond NFT‘) in the form of a ERC-721 standard token. Subject of this Token Offering also includes the transfer of additional utility tokens (hereinafter ‘Tiamond TIA Token’ or ‘TIA Token’) in the form of an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum Blockchain. Tiamond NFT and Tiamond TIA Token shall hereinafter be referred to as ‘Tiamond Token‘ or ‘Tiamond Tokens‘. The digital ownership rights will be transferred to a wallet defined by the Token Holder (hereinafter ‘Token Holder‘ or ‘Token Recipient‘). Token Issuer and Token Recipient shall hereinafter be referred to as ‘Parties‘.
Tiamonds AG (“Issuing Party” or “Token Issuer”) is offering (hereinafter the ‘Offering‘, “Issuance”, or ‘Token Offering‘) Tiamond NFTs and Tiamond TIA Token through LCX AG (“Placing Party” or “Token Placer”) who places the Tiamond Tokens in Liechtenstein as a regulated VASP without a firm commitment basis (the “Placement”) on a reasonable effort’s basis. Each Tiamond NFT will be either sold at a fixed price or within an auction. Each Tiamond NFT holder will be entitled to receive TIA Token as rewards over a defined period of time.
The Placing Party performs all services regulated under the Liechtenstein TVTG on behalf and for the account of the Issuing Party.
Tiamond NFTs may be put up for sale at a fixed price or offered for auction.
The issue date of the Tiamonds Tokens will be June 6, 2023.
The Issuer is not obliged to provide Token holders with a refund for any reason and Token holders cannot request an exchange or redemption of the monetary value vis-à-vis LCX AG or vis-à-vis Tiamonds AG.
Tokens will be provided on an “as is” basis. The Issuer and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, equity holders, and affiliates make no representations or warranties of any kind. Digital assets are part of a new and rapidly evolving industry, and the value of Tiamond Tokens depends on the development and acceptance of this industry.
Extreme volatility in the future could have a material adverse effect on the value of Tiamond Tokens and Tiamond Tokens could lose all or substantially all of its value.
Digital asset networks are dependent upon the internet. A disruption of the internet or a digital asset network, such as the Ethereum Network, would affect the ability to transfer digital assets, including ETH, and, consequently, their value.
Many digital asset networks face significant scaling challenges and are being upgraded with various features to increase the speed and throughput of digital asset transactions. These attempts to increase the volume of transactions may not be effective.
Banks may not provide banking services, or may cut off banking services, to businesses that provide digital asset-related services or that accept digital assets as payment, which could dampen liquidity in the market and damage the public perception of digital assets generally or any one digital asset in particular, such as Bitcoin, and their or its utility as a payment system, which could decrease the price of digital assets generally or individually.
In addition, the Ethereum blockchain rests on open-source software, and accordingly there is the risk that the Token smart contract may contain intentional or unintentional bugs or weaknesses which may negatively affect Tokens or result in the loss or theft of Tokens or the loss of ability to access or control Tokens. In the event of such a software bug or weakness, there may be no remedy and Tokens holders are not guaranteed any remedy, refund or compensation.
If a private key is lost, destroyed or otherwise compromised and no backup of the private key is accessible, Token holders will not be able to access the blockchain asset associated with the corresponding address, and the Issuer will not be able to restore the private key.
Transactions involving Tokens that have been verified, and thus recorded as a block on the blockchain, generally cannot be undone and are final. Even if the transaction turns out to have been in error, or due to theft of a user’s Tokens, the transaction is not reversible. Consequently, the issuer is unable to replace missing Tokens or seek reimbursement for any erroneous transfer or theft of Tokens.
The Tokens are held by the buyer in wallets with encoded access. If the contributor loses this access, there is no way to get to the Token. They will be lost. In particular, the Issuer is neither actually nor legally able to regenerate and issue the Tokens. The same risk exists if a third party succeeds in gaining unauthorized access to the wallet. Also, in this case, where a third-party succeeds in removing and transferring the Tokens from the wallet, the Issuer is not able to issue new Tokens to the contributor.
Prospective Token holders must seek their own tax advice in the relevant jurisdictions in connection with acquiring Tokens, which may result in adverse tax consequences, including withholding taxes, income taxes and tax reporting requirements.
LCX is solely acting as a trusted technology service provider for this token sale and is not responsible and not liable for any business activity of Tiamonds AG. Monty Metzger is a director at LCX AG and Tiamonds AG.
The Token Issuer will not sell any Tokens where potential buyers are citizens or residents of restricted jurisdictions as determined by the Token Issuer and Placer and disclosed on their platforms.
The Token Issuer and Placer has the right to amend the lists of non-restricted countries at any time and at its sole discretion. Depending on the Token Recipient’s country of residence, the legal assessment of the Tiamond Token may be changed fundamentally upon respective amendments of domestic legislation. It is up to the Token Holder to keep track of such changes. The Token Issuer and Placer are not liable for any changes in the legal assessment of the Token arising from any developments in domestic legislations within the countries of the above-mentioned list. Placing Party is handling all regulated virtual asset services and is operating its services on the basis of non-direct solicitation, similar to many global FinTech providers, which means that they do not specifically target customers in any particular country, but are able to passively accept customers who find them online and decide to register. Because they do not have any physical presence, offices, or local activities in any country outside of Liechtenstein, as a result, the performance of contractual rights and duties and their activities are always considered to be based in Liechtenstein.
The Token Recipient shall not participate in the Token Offering if there are applicable legal restrictions in his country of residence or domicile. It is their sole responsibility to ensure that participation in the Token Offering is not prohibited under the applicable legal restrictions in their country of residence or domicile.
