Whatis plant1@2x

What is Bloom?

Bloom is an end-to-end protocol for identity attestation, risk assessment and credit scoring, entirely on the blockchain. Bloom allows both traditional and digital currency lenders to serve billions of people who currently cannot obtain a bank account or credit score.

L

The Status Quo

There are 5 issues with current credit
infrastructure that Bloom aims to address:

ISSUE #

01
Quo icon1@2x
Quo icon1 screen@2x

High Risk of Identity Theft

Borrowers must expose all of their personal information when applying for a loan - the same info an attacker can use to open new lines of credit.

Smallplant5

ISSUE #

02
Quo icon2@2x

Cross-Border Credit Scoring

Credit histories are not portable across countries, forcing individuals to re-establish their credit track records from scratch when they relocate.

Smallplant5

ISSUE #

03
Quo icon3@2x
Quo icon3 pen@2x

Creditworthiness Assessment

Most credit systems rely almost entirely on historical debt repayment information and therefore cannot easily accommodate users who are new to credit.

Quo icon4@2x

Quo icon4 card3@2x

Limited Ability to Expand

Borrowers in markets with less developed financial and regulatory infrastructure struggle to access credit as lenders have limited identity and scoring data.

Uncompetitive Credit Scoring

Credit data is centralized. In most markets, a single provider scores credit, resulting in an uncompetitive ecosystem for evaluating credit risk.

Protocol big top@2x

Bloom Protocol

The Bloom Protocol provides solutions allowing any lender authorized by a borrower to safely and securely issue credit to that borrower.

The three main components of the Bloom protocol are:

pay debts that adapts to the maturity
of a user’s credit history.

BloomToken (BLT)

The Bloom token allows organizations to participate in evaluating user identities and creditworthiness. It also serves as the voting token to guide the evolution of the Bloom protocol.

Blt planttop@2x

Protocol Voting

BLT will serve as a voting mechanism for instituting changes to the BloomScore phases and algorithms.

Accrediting Attestors

Payment history providers and lenders will need to submit proposals to the ecosystem regarding why they are trustworthy, what their business does, and why their data should be included in the BloomScore.

Blt vine basel@2x Blt vine baser@2x
Blt vine center2@2x

Network Currency

Identity attesters and risk assessors on the Bloom network will be able to set prices and receive payment for their services in BLT.

These organizations pay BLT as an application fee and, in turn, users who vote on their eligibility will receive a portion of that fee.

Bloom Invitation System

While the network is in its infancy without a wide array of attesters, it is more susceptible to attack. In order to increase the immediate resilience of the network, users will be required to put up a small amount of BLT as collateral for users who they invite.

This collateral serves as protection against a mass-scale network of malicious accounts.
