About Gem

The Backstory

Gem has powered the decentralization movement through its cryptocurrency wallets and blockchain platform since 2013. Our seasoned team of cryptocurrency software architects and blockchain engineers are building apps for the next generation of consumers, offering easier and more secure ways to participate in the rapidly evolving digital marketplace. With our new app arriving July 2018, Gem will change the way you look at and experience cryptocurrency.

Gem empowers individuals to take full control of their wealth and to benefit from the value of their own data in this new economy, which is decentralized and free; driven by communities, not institutions; powered by the collective talents of individuals working together; aligned by a shared belief that together we can solve the biggest problems facing our world.

We’re redistributing power back where it belongs, in the hands of the individual.

Gem's Core Values

Make it Happen
As individuals, our innate sense of agency means we are never waiting around for something to happen, but actively seek ways to contribute.

Empower Others
Our success depends on our ability to make others successful - both our partners and our teammates. When we empower the people around us, their contribution multiplies our efforts.

Craft an Experience
We believe in the importance of a holistic experience, so everything we create must come from both a complete understanding of what our partners need and a vision for what will bring them delight.

Do the Essential
We have the discipline for discerning what is most important, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the greatest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.

Destroy Your Masterpiece
We believe in complete dedication to our craft in everything we do at Gem, but we maintain the humility to destroy our masterpiece, and resign our need to be right, when superior solutions emerge.

Seek Knowledge
Nothing is more intrinsically rewarding than expanding our skillsets and knowledge. By engaging with people who look at the world in different ways, we are constantly challenged to learn from others, as well as share our own knowledge to help them grow.
