UTU is building the trust infrastructure of the internet to help users and platforms engage and transact in an easier, safer, and more trustworthy way.
Starting with Web3 and DeFi apps, we provide AI-powered curation of trust signals from your network at just the right places and times to help you connect, send, swap, stake, and borrow with confidence. We deliver these signals to people via our browser extension and to platforms via our APIs and SDKs.
UTU’s blockchain protocol transforms the economics of trust. You can build your online reputation, denominated in UTU Trust Token (UTT) by connecting your socials, and stake your reputation on any uniquely identifiable asset on the internet. You’ll earn more UTT when your endorsements help others get good outcomes and those UTT will earn you rewards in $UTU, UTU’s tradeable token. UTU Protocol makes trust pay but ensures it can’t be bought or manipulated.
UTU has designed, built, and launched all critical, core components of UTU Protocol, led one of the first token sales in Africa ($4M), and acquired more than 10k users. We’ve also built a suite of fintech APIs that empower thousands of SMEs across Africa with access to working capital via the Africa DeFi Alliance, which UTU instigated and is incubating.
Chandaria Capital has helped build UTU’s credentials and reach in East Africa as their portfolio and networks represent some of the most exciting companies and entrepreneurs on the continent, and we could not be more excited to explore how UTU’s trust solutions and our Africa Defi Alliance Initiative can support the entire group.
