The three peaks of Everest — inspiration for our three main components: EverWallet, EverChain and EverID.

Everest’s platform is built and being trialed by some of the largest banks, governments, financial service providers and NGOs on the planet. Its three complementary and interconnected solutions enable large organizations to profitably reach billions of the unbanked, reduce fraud and leakage, and verify funds are delivered to the right people, allowing users to remit funds from anywhere in the world:

“The infrastructure and protocol nature of the Everest platform is incredibly exciting,” said Atsushi Taira, Managing Director of Mistletoe Singapore. “We are seeing land, health records, farming, insurance, and remittance application developers leverage the Everest platform, while simultaneously empowering the economically challenged with a user-owned identity. We agree with Everest that digital identity is a basic human right.”

The Everest team is comprised of veterans within the security, fintech, distributed systems ,and international development sectors. Our advisory board consists of luminaries from blockchain/fintech, humanitarian organizations, development banks, distributed software companies, and global think tanks. Investments have been made by several recognized entities including Mistletoe, Archer Blockchain, The Crypto Company, OpenToken and other angel investors, all providing strategic leadership and networks for growth. A token sale is anticipated in September of this year.
