Reasons to Invest

Established In Market - Zoom, Urban Outfitters, Spirit Airlines, and 45 other companies are in beta testing with us and we have signed non-binding LOIs valued at over $535K dollars in annual recurring revenue
Proven Team & Partners - We are led by a team with prior experience in the blockchain space, and we currently hold a partnership with ADP, the largest HR software provider in the world

Overview


Finally, an alternative to the dreaded background check


It’s time to revolutionize how digital documents are verified, starting with the background check. Verifying information is expensive, time-consuming, and prone to human error. TransCrypts is a patent-pending blockchain solution platform that gives employees ownership over their own verified information while automating the process for employers–– saving them from unnecessary friction.  

TransCrypts possesses first-mover advantage in the digital document blockchain space. We’re targeting companies with 40+ employees, which offers abundant potential for short-term and long-term market growth. 45 companies have already joined our platform in beta testing and over 10,000 people have joined the waitlist for our soon-to-be-released B2C IPFS based document storage product.




Our B2B product is currently in the open beta phase. We are utilizing this time to allow companies to get comfortable with the platform and obtain feedback. In November, we plan to exit the open beta phase and start charging customers. Our B2C product is currently in development and will be released as an add-on early next year.

THE PROBLEM


HR is losing $4.5 billion annually just to verify employee information


We estimate that every year, HR departments spend 150 million hours verifying new employee information. That translates to $4.5 billion in excess labor costs to employers. 



The above statistics are estimates made by the company based on public statistics and internal research.


Where does all the time and money go? 


The short answer is phone calls and emails. A lot of them.


HR departments are constantly providing information about their current or past employees to background check companies, lenders, and government organizations who request it.


To save time and potential liability, some companies choose to outsource this responsibility to third-party companies, like Equifax and HireRight. This shortcut quickly poses two additional organizational threats: expensive labor costs and data privacy and security issues. Despite these inefficiencies, there has been little to no innovation in the market in the past decade.



THE SOLUTION


Fully automated, secure issuance of verification forms


TransCrypts' patent-pending process fully automates the employment and income verification process, saving an immense amount of time and, as a result, greatly reduces costs for HR departments and teams. They won’t need to manually respond to verification requests, eliminating any compliance-related headaches. We are a solution on the market that makes a huge difference in the lives of HR professionals and organizations alike. We believe organizations will benefit from instantaneous verification, freeing up their time to handle other important business matters. Likewise, individuals will reap the benefits of this program as it will allow them to have more control over their own information. 


TransCrypts only takes 15 minutes to set up and the process contains four simple steps. On our intuitive platform, employers and employees can seamlessly complete verifications. Through our blockchain technology, all documents are verifiable, which gives users full control of their own data and choice on who they share it with.





There’s a fundamental difference between us and our competitors: we do not believe in owning anyone's data. 


To avoid this, we decentralize the storage of user data via IPFS (Interplanetary File Sharing System). We store documents by breaking them up into thousands of very tiny “pieces,” and store these across thousands of computers. In doing this we ensure that, even in the case of a cybersecurity attack, those with unauthorized access will not be able to view the entire document--making it nearly impossible for hackers to gain access to sensitive information. Our legacy competitors Equifax and HireRight, were the target of two of the largest data breaches in U.S. history as a result of their centrally-stored data. 


In addition, our competitors are slower and more expensive. Our users receive verification instantly, rather than having to wait several days. We offer three pricing tiers, based on the number of employees, and all three offer a more affordable price than our current competitors. 




THE MARKET


A $2.7 billion total addressable market, with multi-industry potential 


The global background check industry was valued at  $100 billion in 2018. As of 2018 it was growing at  12% every year, representing an immense growth opportunity within this vertical.


TransCrypts is targeting companies with 40+ employees–– which is the typical employee count when a company’s HR starts devoting a substantial amount of time to verification issuance. Based on data from the  U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, 76 million employees are working in companies of that size. If you multiply that number by our lowest B2B subscription plan, the total addressable market (TAM) is $2.7 billion annually. 



Our patented blockchain technology and model can be scaled beyond employment or financial verification to include document verification in the medical, financial, legal, governmental, and educational industries. 


By 2024, the global blockchain-as-a-service market is expected to reach approximately US $30.59 billionThat's a growth rate o 85.09% annually (CAGR) between 2018 and 2024. The technology that brings our product to life is extremely valuable and fast-growing. As a company looking to improve the verification issuance process, we believe we can take advantage of the growing need for precise and cost-effective verification services. We are well-positioned to capitalize on the growth and industry-wide interest in blockchain technology and to fulfill the growing demand for precise and cost-effective verification services within the HR vertical.



We have a sizable initial market to serve, and an impressive potential for multi-industry expansion. We're confident in our ability to corner the market across all verticals to unlock tremendous value for our shareholders.

why invest


It's time for document verification and personal data revolutions


TransCrypts is in the business of empowerment for both employers and employees. We believe every single person in the world should be able to privately and securely store their verified documents and share those documents with third-party organizations whenever they see fit. We also want to create a platform where third-party organizations can verify the documents instantaneously. 


 



In the near future, we envision TransCrypts as the ultimate solution for storing, sharing, and verifying personal information. 


Take part in the disruptive potential our solution through blockchain offers. This is your chance to support a company that is redefining the space through the lens of privacy, security, and accessibility. Join us!

TransCrypts Passes 125,000 Dollars Raised + Monthly Update

about 2 months ago

Hi All! I would like to thank each and everyone of our investors for their belief in TransCrypts. Passing 125,000 dollars raised in such a short period of time is an incredible honor and would not have been possible without all of you. With these funds we will be able to further accelerate our growth and continue to build a world-class team to help our company reach new milestones. 


As a monthly update the month of November represented our fasting growing month to date. We added a total of 11 institutions including as many of you know Doctors Without Borders (MSF). As things stand now total beta user count has surpassed 60 total institutions. Furthermore with the completion of our penetration test we are around half way through getting our SOC-2 certification. 


TransCrypts Passes Key Security Test On Road To Revenue

about 2 months ago

Over the past one week, our platform has been undergoing key penetration testing to ensure the safety of our customer's data from malicious attacks.  On average only 6.4% of companies pass the penetration test on their first try, and I am proud to announce that TransCrypts was one of those select companies. The result of our penetration testing was that there were no major vulnerabilities found anywhere on the TransCrypts platform including our private blockchain network. A common concern we get when talking to potential customers is the security of our platform and of our underlying blockchain technology. With it being such a new technology there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding the security and privacy of blockchain. That is why many of our letters of intent have a requirement that we get our SOC-2 certification before we can execute on them. With us passing this test we are one step closer to reaching revenue and changing this world one document at a time.

International Coverage of Our Partnership With Doctors Without Borders

2 months ago

Hi all! As many of you know our recent partnership with Doctors Without Borders was featured in various publications across the United States. From Reno to Dover local and national news outlets covered our partnership announcement. It was recently  brought to my attention that news outlets in over 30 countries also covered our announcement as well. Publications from Japan, China, Thailand, Russia, Mexico, India, Vietnam and South Korea all featured us. To get international coverage as a startup is a rare feat and has already made November the fastest growing month we have ever had. Below are some snips of the most notable pieces of international coverage we received:

TransCrypts Announces Partnership With Doctors Without Borders To Store Medical Records On The Blockchain

2 months ago

Every year over 700,000 people in developing countries die from illnesses that could be prevented from the implementation of an adequate medical record management system. This loss of life over something so simple is unacceptable. The sad reality is that existing solutions cost millions of dollars to implement which is completely unaffordable for the health care providers in most of these countries. 


That is why I am proud to announce TransCrypts' document storage and issuance platform will be free for all NGOs, hospitals and government organizations forever in select countries. Our partnership with Doctors Without Border will allow us to store the records of thousands of people securely and discreetly on the blockchain. Not only is this a historic moment for the use of blockchain technology in the medical space but also for TransCrypts. 


Since the beginning the goal for Ali and I was to make a platform that would allow individuals to have ownership and control of all of their important verified documentation. This marks the first usage of our platform outside of the income and employment verification space and as we continue to grow we hope to be able to continually expand into other verticals.


Special thanks to John Gallagher from Cointelegraph and the Marketwatch team for coverage of our story.
