Our aim at TrustUnion is to reduce the cost of building Trust on a global scale. We are constructing a system to replicate real-life trust in the digital world based on all the reliable qualities of blockchain.


Our Vision

Trust is all about new opportunities. When trust is present, the field of possibilities explodes and makes any business environment a healthy place to evolve. But when we think about it, this concept relies on third parties. At the moment, most tools used to create trust between two peers are based on the reputation that an organization has earned over time, as judged by other parties in that environment.

Trust accountability has become an expensive market worth more than $29 trillion. Whether you are a seller of goods and services or a consumer, you have to sacrifice your time, money and privacy to obtain a seemingly trustworthy profile.

Based on the small world phenomenon, TrustUnion have created the Chain of Trust: a fully featured protocol that covers most aspects of Trust in an unfakable way. The links formed with this technology are based on real, trustworthy connections you have made during your life. You are incentivized to create these connections only with people who you really trust in real life. Every aspect of the ecosystem places utmost importance on your personal privacy while maintaining a way to disclose your trustworthiness to others. Your identity is no longer based on your personal data, but on your trustworthiness according to your connections. You will be able to transport this Trust across all kinds of services and start to build your personal Trust capital.

Upcoming Regulations

We have the legislation process and willingness to be the first 100% legal cryptocurrency, approved and supported by governments

After too many abuses, in 2018 and beyond, governments, finance and markets will force regulation of cryptocurrencies. Few will survive. Many exchanges will be regulated.
TrustUnion is now working closely with governments and lawyers to become the first real regulated ICO of history. We plan to be accredited by many authorities and markets. More information will come very soon.


We are deeply committed to listening to our community, learning from you, and making your point of view matter.


We anticipated the switch of paradigm from the genesis of our project and will be in full compliance with regulatory bodies.
