About CreDA
CreDA is the first trusted decentralized credit rating service that links blockchain (on-chain) and traditional (off-chain) systems to create a universal trust score for Web 3.0

CreDA provides on-chain credit ratings using the CreDA Credit Oracle, employing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to examine the user’s assets, historical transactions, connections, and behavior in the crypto space. This data is used to calculate a credit score that is then minted into a secure credit NFT (cNFT). The cNFT enables the user to demonstrate their credibility and unlock preferential rates and incentives across a variety of use cases e.g., reduced borrow rates on DeFi, additional perks on GameFi, increased status on SocialFi. Coupled with a user’s digital identifier (DID), CreDA supports the interoperability and connection of protocols across the web3 universe.

Our global team includes executives, entrepreneurs and thought leaders from the traditional banking, technology, and crypto industries located across North America, Western Europe and Asia. We’ve been working in relative stealth mode for the past 18 months to ensure we have a stable and functioning product and we are now ready to go to market.
