About Trust Science

Trust Science® is committed to making the world more financially inclusive, one credit score at a time. We deliver a globally recognized service to assess people’s trustworthiness so that we can help deserving people get what they deserve.

Our amazing team is how we make this happen!

Our Story

Evan Chrapko realized that trust assessments had been made ever since strangers started trading currency. With gut instinct being unreliable, Evan hoped to develop technology that could help people make reliable trust assessments. The company was initially called Trust Torch—a light-emitting tool that could illuminate trustworthiness.

Distributed Ledger technology laid the foundation for Blockchain (B9) and Bitcoin shortly before Evan filed a patent application that leveraged Smart Contracts to a wider world. Today, Trust Science remains fearless in this technology as Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and Verified Credentials gain traction.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help worthy people get what they deserve. Currently, we are helping lenders to properly assess which people deserve loans.

Our Vision

A world where worthy people get what they deserve. We deliver a globally recognized service to assess people’s trustworthiness. Our current focus is on Credit Scoring for under-banked people.

Our Values

At Trust Science, our values are more than just words—they’re a way of life.

In 2023, we developed the following list of core values in collaboration with everyone, from interns to our CEO. The core values are the alchemy that permeates through everything we do. As we grow, we’ll face different challenges and embrace new strategies, but these core values will remain the same.

Integrity

You can trust that we say what we do and do what we say. We take responsibility for our achievements and our mistakes. We hold ourselves accountable for predictable, consistent, and secure results to give worthy people what they deserve.

Teamwork

We collaborate respectfully, trust one another, leverage our diversity in perspectives and strengths to lift our teams higher, and support each other when we falter. We have greater achievements and more fun when we’re working together.

Positive Impact

We care about our customers, the end consumer, our community, and each other. We are inclusive, adaptable, trustworthy, innovative, and relentless in our pursuit to make a positive difference in the lives of those around us.

Learning

We are lifelong learners, tenaciously seeking to understand with humility, curiosity, trust, and a drive to build, organize, and grow. We give and receive feedback, share our knowledge, and apply it as we innovate.

Courage

We embrace vulnerability, challenge ourselves to take calculated risks, and disrupt the status quo where necessary for the greater good. We understand that innovation can be uncomfortable; we work bravely through discomfort, take strategic action, trust the process, and are confident in our impact.
