PRIVACY

GunClear’s use of zero-knowledge proofs in the minting of tokens allows for greater secrecy than any other record keeping solution.

SECURITY

Building our distributed application on one of the largest and most established blockchain solutions (Ethereum), powers the absolute security of your data.

CONVENIENCE

Gun owners no longer need to rely on pieces of paper to prove legal ownership of their firearm. In just a few clicks, you can prove compliant ownership, acquisition, sale, and transfer of firearms.

OUR VISION

Gun rights and gun control advocates agree, keeping guns out of the hands of bad guys should be a priority. We do not need to compromise the ability of good people to buy, use, and carry guns in a compliant manner to achieve this.

GunClear provides gun owners the platform needed to save the relevant and necessary data relative to the ownership of their firearm; using a digital space that is free from government or individual surveillance.

OUR STORY

THE FIREARM MARKET

The facts and figures surrounding firearms in the United States are astounding; 350 million guns, possession by 42% of households, 5 million guns manufactured and sold in 2015, 15 million transactions per year. The most staggering factor is the performance of the industry, growing 8 times over from 1982 through 2013.

THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY

With such a large market and political pressure for change, why has the system for managing firearm data been passed over in the digital age? Because gun owners don’t trust the government.

Each state has a complex set of gun laws, and you as the gun owner are responsible for managing these laws as you travel, change residence, and live your life. As law enforcement faces more pressure to enforce existing gun laws, managing your ownership and compliance becomes more vital to lawful possession of a firearm. Regardless of complexity or enforcement, YOU bear the responsibility to demonstrate compliance.

THE PRODUCT

Do you know where your firearm documents are right now? Imagine a world where you can immediately demonstrate compliant ownership in a traffic stop with law enforcement? Imagine a world where you can rest easy knowing that the firearm you just purchased has not been used in any crimes. Imagine a world where you do not know who owned your gun before you, but you know they too were compliant with the law. This is GunClear. And this allows a revolution in firearm transactions that rewards good guys transacting with other good guys.

Advances in cryptography and blockchain privacy technology allow for unprecedented levels of data security. Gun owners now have the option of truly private data ownership that is authenticated through network consensus, but resistant to censorship and monitoring. With GunClear’s public key, private key cryptography, a single fail point could never expose the larger database.
