The $1 Trillion Problem


Confidentiality and integrity of lawful communications, negotiations, e-banking and cryptocurrency transactions is a problem for all, but a crucial one for hundreds of thousands of top executives, high net worth individuals, civil rights activists and political candidates.

Their attempts to mitigate the resulting espionage by competitors, financial fraud, or blackmail are largely unsuccessful and often result in additional costs in form of unwanted travel, self-censorship and missed opportunities.

Whatever the price their are willing to pay, there are no solutions or devices in the market today, that offer comprehensive comparative evidence of the level of protection they provide against continuous and undetectable compromisation, from even mid-level threat actors.

Even though the cybersecurity market has grown 30 times in the last 10 years, the cost of cybercrime will accrue to a wopping $8 trillion between 2017 and 2022, an average of $17 million per year for a sizeable enterprise. 

    civicNET & civicCHAIN

CivicNet members produce cybersecurity by running our CivicDocks, ultra-secure hardware-based anonymization and CivicChain blockchain nodes, by participating in standards governance, by proposing security improvements, core software upgrades; or submitting apps and dApps.

CivicNet members consume cybersecurity by leasing our CivicPodsstandalone 2mm-thin touch-screen WiFi computing devices that are attachable to the back of any smartphone via a CivicCase, or inserted face-out in a dedicated leather CivicWallet.

At TRUSTLESS.AI we are building a 2mm-thin touch-screen WiFi-enabled device - and a new certification body and  compliant open computing base and ecosystem - that seamlessly deliver radically unprecedented levels of cybersecurity to the most critical computing of high profile individuals and enterprises, then to tens of millions of Android consumers; while still solidly enabling legitimate and constitutional - no more, no less - lawful access.


We merge uniquely uncompromising security-by-design endpoint paradigms going all the way down to transparently and extremely-inspected CPU source designs, fabrication oversight, and certification governance - and leading industry-backed open-source blockchain technologies. We widely apply citizen-witness and citizen-jury processes, adapted from those deployed in nuclear safety, democratic electoral and US judiciary processes. Ultimately, we re-conceptualize cybersecurity as a cyber-social governance problem. A unique form factor and minimal features enable a seamless user experience that is 2-3 times faster than smartphones.

TRUSTLESS.AI is just the tip of an iceberg, of an expanding community, of a movement, through the Trustless Computing Association (TCA), from which it spun off in Nov 2016.

Over the last 4 years, the Trustless Computing Associations has been promoting new standards and open technologies with levels of trustworthiness that are radically beyond state of the art. It has grown into an active community of world leading experts, consultancies, the largest industry associations, high-assurance open IT leaders, nation state security and privacy agencies, and enterprises, around foundational R&D consortium initiatives, a Free and Safe in Cyberspace global event series, and plans for a public-private Trustless Computing Campus and Cluster in Rome or Berlin

Trustless Computing is the long-awaited paradigm shift in achieving perceived and actual security and ultra-high assurance in hardware and software systems and services that form the backbone of our online (and offline) presence. The key principle in the Trustless Computing paradigm is to compute without the need or assumption of unverified trust in anything or anyone, except in the user-assessable technical proficiency, ethical stance and accountability of the organizational processes critically involved in the entire lifecycle of a product or a service.

Trustless Computing requires that all and every software, hardware and processes that are critically involved in the provisioning or lifecycle of a computing service – from high-level software-stack to CPU design to fabrication, to hosting room access – be subject to extreme verification relative to complexity, or to extremely resilient socio-technical oversight.





A decentralized network of software and hardware developers, service providers, devices, users and ethical security experts, producing and consuming radically-unprecedented cybersecurity in a trustless environment.

Every CivicNet component is Trustless Computing compliant, built on top of uncompromising privacy-by-design and security-by-design principles.


A Tendermint-based semi-permissioned blockchain offering unprecedented security of dApps by running exclusively on ultra-secure and ultra-authenticated CivicNodes, running exclusively on its native SAGO Coins.

SAGO Coins can be used to pay for all CivicNet services and third-party decentralized apps.Also allows interaction with other public blockchains (bitcoin, ethereum).








join our TRUSTLESS.AI, our Trustless Computing Association, and our roster of  current partners, as additional pilot, strategic, channel or investor partners - to build CivicNet: the 1st compliant  commercial IT service Compliant to the emerging Trustless Computing Certification Body.
