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.



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.


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. 


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.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
