Rebuilding trust through empowered notaries
For hundreds of years, notarization has been the primary tool for establishing trust in business, legal and government transactions.
The advent of the digital age – and notarization’s recent inability to keep up – had at first raised questions on the need for notarization in this new cyber age.
But the past few years have underscored the untapped potential that notarization offers our society, economy and communities. As we have seen a growing level of distrust for technology, the internet and even each other, we’ve also seen that same trend of growing distrust of key institutions in our country.
It is in this environment that the potential for the duly licensed notary’s traditional trust-building role becomes apparent and needed.
At Astrean, we believe that notaries can once again play a critical role in building trust in our business and legal interactions. And we are committed to empowering notaries with their important duties and responsibilities.

Digital notarization enhances security & privacy
One of the biggest challenges faced by traditional notarization is the lack of consistent fraud safeguards.
Today’s technology makes notarization even more secure and trustworthy, with better privacy safeguards and protection from accidental loss or destruction.
And Astrean’s solution takes it even further:
- Verified notaries - to build client trust
- Signer ID validation - against international database
- Signer ID verification - with dynamic KBA
- Encrypted data - in transit and at rest
- Blockchain-enabled - for more tamper-proof records
IPEN, RIN or RON
Equipping notaries for success in the digital age
Take full advantage of digital
Many face-to-face business transactions that require notarizations, including mortgage closings and business transactions, are increasingly turning to eNotarization.
By digitizing the notary process and certificates even for in-person notarizations, notarized documents are easier to manage, retain and share.
With the Astrean Notary Success Suite, you have the option of conducting digital ID verifications, recording the entire event (or just the signing), issuing digital certificates and/or digitally recording into your electronic journal.
Capitalize on RON
RON laws do vary by state. And some states are more restrictive than others on what notarial events (and which notaries) can conduct a valid RON event.
At Astrean, we’re actively pursuing full approval in every RON-enabled state.
Notarization — the next major gig economy?
Introducing the Astrean Notary Marketplace
Depending on the state or transaction, a customer may need a notary with special training or even a law degree! Sometimes, they need a mobile — instead of a remote online — notary, and they're willing to pay for it.
In many states, notary clients need a notary who is physically located in the state, even if the transaction is remote.
We want to connect consumer and business clients with you, if they're the right fit.
Astrean makes it a snap for consumers and businesses to connect with the appropriate commission or license – right away. Plus, we select and train only qualified notaries to be part of this marketplace.

How blockchain, cryptocurrencies & NFTs impact notarization
You’ve probably heard the terms blockchain or cryptocurrency – or their related products (Bitcoin, tokens, coins, NFTs, etc.) – and may have wondered what they meant. You may also be wondering if they were even worth your time.
They answer is a resounding YES.
For one, blockchain offers inherent “immutability,” which means that archived records cannot be tampered with or changed. More recently, there has been an explosion of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
What are NFTs? Strictly speaking, a non-fungible token is any DATA added to a FILE that creates a unique SIGNATURE. And notarization, by its very essence, deals with files and signatures.
One of the things that sets Astrean apart is that our blockchain experts have integrated our digital notarization platform with our proprietary blockchain to enhance the reliability and value of your work as notaries. As Astrean users, you'll also be getting NFTs that you can redeem for subscription credits or trade as “coins.”
