Trust is completely free – and yet at the same time, it’s the thing for which you must work hardest. Trust is measured by how we behave towards each other. Trust is the most powerful tool in the world, but it is also the least exploited. TrustUnion is here to fix this!

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.

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.


Based on the small world phenomenon, TrustUnion has created the Chain of Trust: a fully featured protocol that covers all aspects of Trust in an unfakable way. The links formed with this technology are based on real and rare, trustworthy connections you have made during your life and we replicate in the digital world.

Revolutionary, your identity is no longer based on your personal data, but your trustworthiness depends on your connections and your digital interactions.

You will be able to transport and use this trust.

This trust is the most valuable social element of our world; it belongs to you and opens the door to a new cooperation.


  • Digital identity

    Based on privacy and frugality through GDPR compliance, your trustworthiness now forms your identity.

  • Trust Score

    A multi-platform, globalized rating system based on objective and subjective feedback supported by an artificial intelligence regulator.

  • Search engine

    TrustSeach increases global digital cooperation for unlimited uses. The goal of the search is to aggregate and verify information, creating reliable e-reputations and digital identities that allow users to have more trust online.

  • User friendly

    User-friendly technology based on common normalized online behavior.

TrustChain is a completely decentralized reputation network. No regulators, no bias, no lock-downs.

Users connect to a very limited number of people who they know and trust in the real world.

Interactions with different sharing economy providers, P2P and e-commerce transactions are recorded on the network.

A user’s reputation affects the reputation of the people he / she is connected with. This way all “bad boys” are naturally eliminated from the network with the true self-regulation.

You can easily transfer your TrustScore to the platform you haven’t used before and enjoy all the benefits highly rated users have there.
