It's important having banks verify you are who you say you are. It will give you extra transparency towards the exchange platform by preventing bad players to come and eliminating duplication. So we can provide you with better service. And you are protected from such risks as becoming a victim of fraud yourself or reputational damage from using the service with others who are guilty of unlawful activity.

Extended user option

This option will unlock membership services like upgrading encrypted cloud storage plans, getting more GEE for blockchain timestamping and opt-in value. However, Extended user will not benefit from the Geens NPO membership privileges that fall inside the scope of European Union law and profit-return options.

Company Files

Here you can find all your teams public files.
These files can be uploaded by every team member, but only the company admin(s) can share and otherwise manage these files. The admin account, can also grant permissions to chosen team members to share and manage these files (make them admins).

My Company Files

A space for each team members personal storage witch is provided by the company where they can upload, share and manage their own files without needing additional permission and without others seeing them. These files, when ready or needed, can be copied to company files. From that moment all of the file copy management is passed on to the admin.

Shared Files

The place for shared files which are categorized by shared with me and shared by me. Each shared file is marked with a user icon which will be shown next to the file or folder in every of the storage spaces - company files, my company files, share files and etc. More information about the sharing actions can be found by clicking on a specific file and then details.

Recycle Bin

Delete files without worry. Maybe there are some files that you won’t need for a long time or don’t need at all. All deleted files are transferred to the recycle bin where once again you can decide what to do with these files. They can be restored or deleted from the recycle bin permanently without any possibility to restore.

Timestamps on blockchain

Have any important documents that need additional protection? Don’t worry, we got you covered - with timestamps you can stamp your files and not only track the progress of files, but have proof of their existence.

Our blockchain timestamping is based on NEM blockchain Mainnet.
From now on timestamp made in Geens.com platform will be handled by NEM blockchain and transaction fee will be covered by Geens utility token GEE. Estimated GEE value is equal to 1 EUR. Use GEE token to buy timestamps for your data. The cost is set to 0.20 GEE per timestamp.

To learn more about benefit of blockchain timestamping, proof existence and use cases visit www.geens.com/timestamp

For business users timestamping can be made in two ways.

Timestamping data from Company Folder will be visible for all team members with the right permissions.

Timestamping data from Personal Company folder will be visible only to that particular user.

Timestamps certificate contains your files integrity HASH which is stored in NEM blockchain with time and owner record.

Certificate can be downloaded as a file or printed directly from the Geens dashboard.

Why Blockchain

In general, the blockchain was designed to be tamper proof. If blockchain was possible to be manipulated, the whole cryptocurrency would have not existed in the first place. That is why timestamping files on blockchain let’s you confidently know that your data is secure.
It can also be used as legal evidence in courts across the globe.

Why NEM
