At Bloom, we’re dedicated to empowering people to take control of their credit and identity, building groundbreaking experiences and workflows for the everyday person, and delivering modern technology that enables increased security, transparency, and financial access.

Last September, we launched the Bloom iOS app, marking a revolution in the way individuals control their data and giving you the power to decide exactly how your data is used. Since then, we have grown to over 250,000 users, announced several major new partnerships, and brought over a dozen lenders into our lending marketplace.

Today’s release of the Android app marks another major milestone for the global identity ecosystem and broader blockchain community. Bloom’s streamlined experience allows users to interface with blockchain in an entirely novel way, one that brings the benefits of decentralized technology to the masses. Now, with the Bloom mobile app on Android and iOS, anyone with a mobile device can finally harness the power of blockchain and a secure financial identity.

The Miracle of Owning Your Own Data is Finally Here

Every moment, servers are logging, cataloging, and selling your personal, private information. Your entire history from your identity to your finances, is exploited by credit bureaus, data brokers, and marketers for financial gain.

Your personal information is being siphoned off, pooled, and sold from company to company, with treasure troves of aggregated data sitting on the servers of tens of thousands of companies all around the world, often weakly protected by lax data security practices and policies.

Data breaches and identity theft are on the rise. In 2018 alone, over 2.6 billion records were stolen or exposed in more than 1,100 data breaches around the world. Hacks and leaks expose highly sensitive and confidential information that gives thieves the keys to your identity. In 2017, there were over 16.7 million victims of identity fraud, leading to $16.8 billion in financial damages. Since 2012, 1 in 3 Americans have been victims of identity theft.

Bloom solves the problems of insecure and extremely vulnerable centralized data and identity systems, providing a decentralized identity that puts your security and privacy first, reduces the risk of data breaches, and mitigates the risk of identity theft. At Bloom, we are giving you the tools to take back control of your data.

No more centralized data storage. No more selling off your data to the highest bidder. No more risking identity theft. Bloom enables you to own, authorize the use of, and protect your data using the latest advancements in blockchain technology. Your identity, and your highly sensitive personal and financial information, is securely safeguarded on your own personal device using cutting-edge cryptography.
