The Old Gold Standard
United States Postal Service Certified Mail has long been the most trusted method for proving possession of a legally sensitive document. If you mailed a document to yourself using Certified Mail, American Courts trust that the unopened contents are unaltered.
In our "Email Age," Trokt Blockchain Certified Email provides immutable, independent evidence that the file in your email has not been altered in any way since the date it was sent. Instead of printing a document to send with Certified Mail, you can now certify your email with the Trokt blockchain.
Who Needs to Protect Themselves with Certification?
Average Americans often find themselves fighting to prove what they know is true, unless they have protected valuable documents.
Inventors. Certify your drawings, plans, or ideas to ensure creation can't be challenged
Whistleblowers. Certify documents that indicate wrongdoing so you can be protected in Court
Advocates. Certify client materials so they can be easily transferred between case workers
Artists. Certify lyrics, artwork, or music so that you have evidence to copyright or trademark
How Does Trokt Blockchain Certified Email Work?
Trokt Blockchain Certified Email performs the same functions as traditional USPS Certified Mail - even down to the "envelope!"
Select any file to certify using the Trokt Email Certification form
Trokt creates a unique hash of the file and adds it to the Trokt blockchain
This hash will be stored in a Trokt document and sent via email with the file attached
Validate the document in the future by rehashing to prove it remains unaltered
Who Controls the Trokt Blockchain?
The Trokt blockchain is not a cryptocurrency where you pay miners for coins, tokens, or to add your data. Trokt blockchain nodes that are setup and manged by Trokt to hold copies of the Trokt blockchain ledger are primarily owned by law firms across the United States. Each node owner is paid a portion of every Certification and Verification fee to cover node operation. For more information on purchasing a node, contact email@example.com
Using Certified Mail
United States Postal Service Certified Mail is an add on service that anyone can purchase at any United States Post Office. To protect yourself using Certified Mail, a customer would need to:
Print or create a physical reproduction of the sensitive document
Using Trokt Blockchain
Trokt Blockchain Certified Email mimics the exact process of Certified mail, yet can be completed with any digital file from your own home or mobile device as follows:
Leave the sensitive document or file in digital form
Purchase a USPS envelope if needed
Store your materials in a Trokt document if you may not have ongoing access to your current email
Track shipment with a paper Certified Mail receipt
Track inclusion of your document into the Trokt blockchain with the document hash and location
Prove your document is unaltered since you sent it by leaving it sealed until opened at the direction of the Court
Prove your document is unaltered by either:
Verifying it using Trokt or
Having a law firm with a Trokt node lookup your document hash
As Digital Fakes Proliferate, Don't risk it... Trokt it!
