Reaching for the stars


The story behind Astrean's name

When our founding team members first embarked on this project, we made up our initial interim name — Public Data Block — in under 5 minutes, knowing that we needed something much, much better.

We knew that we needed an aspirational name to match our vision and mission. We understood that we weren't just building an app, we were helping to launch a much-needed movement to support trust-building in our legal, business, governmental and local systems.

A few months and several days of brand research later, we found the perfect name. Best of all, the domain was available!

Astrea (sometimes referred to as Astria or Astraea) was the ancient Greek goddess of justice, precision, purity and innocence.

According to Greek mythology, she was the last of the immortals to live among humans. It was only during the Iron Age, as greed drove people to distrust everyone, including their own family and friends, that Astrea finally abandoned earth. It is said that she later ascended to the stars to become the constellation of Virgo.
