Trusti – Equity now live for US and Non-US qualifying investors. The crypto compliance app advised by former SEC, IRS and Nasdaq Leadership
Type: Equity pitch (available for US and Non-US investors)
Description: Trusti provides compliance solutions for the exchange of regulated, securitised assets, and is driven by two core products – TrustiCertification™ and TrustiTerminal™. Trusti’s systems enable both the certification of accredited wallets for transacting regulated products and the application of state of the art technology to identify fraudulent networks, helping financial institutions avoid engaging in illicit activity.
What They Do:
Transactions: With a Trusti wallet, transactors can have confidence with whom they are sending funds, for either corporate or private entity. Before completing the transaction the sender can check the true details of the recipient, which authorities have certified for each identity in question. Bad news for phishing and other fraudsters, great news for confidence in cryptocurrency transactions.
Regulation: While the tokenization of assets into security tokens is seen as a core future direction of cryptocurrency, almost every legal jurisdiction mandates that persons exchanging such assets be identified and/or accredited by KYC regulation. Trusti allows regulatory bodies to certify the person behind the cryptocurrency wallet, including irrevocably attaching their status and eligibility to the address, finally enabling for the legal exchange of security tokens.
Securities: While the regulated securities infrastructure has shown a willingness to enable the exchange of blockchain assets, its pseudonymous nature has prevented adoption. Trusti enables regulators or exchanges to accredit the identities of those transacting security tokens and certify them for the exchange of assets on a specific platform. Additionally Trusti’s Terminal enables entities to track the source of funds and avoid interacting with money that comes from illicit sources such as hacking, ransom and other criminal endeavours.
Digital Identity Solutions for Every Use-Case:
Individuals: A secure wallet with identity management and protection from phishing attacks. Certification for security token compliance, such as age, licenses and residency.
Data: Identifying parties to the transaction of protected data, such as patient information. Trusti enables to transact data with confidence in the true identity of the recipient.
Enterprise: Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance. Ensuring corporate entities can comply with regulatory authorities by accurately identifying users and their accreditation.

Zachary used this combined experience to transition to blockchain technology in its nascent period, built and contributed to many projects which eventually led to the founding of Trusti, his latest major project.
