Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Trusted Agent Network?

The Trusted Agent Network Agent (TAN) is the “Uber of Banking.” TAN Agent brings affordable, secure, mobile phone-based financial services to communities that lack traditional banking services. Become the financial center of your community as a local agent sharing financial services. In effect, you become a “corner banker” without the need for a brick-and-mortar location. Your “branch office” is in the Cloud, accessed via your smartphone.

Who Can Become A TAN Agent?

There are three types of TAN Agents who use the BitMinutes mobile blockchain technology to share financial services with customers, friends and family. They can also join the network as agents.


  1. Retailers with a physical location: This allows the existing corner store to become a corner banker.
  2. Independent Agents: For entrepreneurs that are not tied to a retailer or physical store, the opportunity to become a “Branchless Banker.”
  3. Publishers: For publishers with a significant digital footprint, there is an opportunity to participate in revenue sharing as a TAN Publisher.


By becoming a TAN Agent within the Trusted Agent Network, which turns corner retailers into corner bank offices! ANYONE can become a TAN Agent. You don’t need to own a business, you use BitMinutes and other TAN services to create your own business! TAN Agents use BitMinutes to guarantee consumer micro-loans, but TAN agents can also recruit other TAN Agents to create their own network of corner “branch offices.”


Our lending platform uses artificial intelligence to create a Trusted Agent Network (TAN) credit score based upon the consumers’ social media “footprint” and phone usage data. Since we create a secure identity when someone opens an account (we call this a wallet), they would not be able to open up a new account with any other TAN Agent until they paid back the original loan.


We have partnered with Prime Trust, who will offer FDIC insurance protection for your cash transfer up to $250,000 (for U.S. citizens.)
