Startup Launches a New Tool to Protect Vulnerable Adults

 Nearly eighteen million people currently have court-appointed guardians or a power of attorney in the United States alone. These decision-makers for elderly or incapacitated individuals, are held accountable for maintaining detailed records of every action taken on behalf of the person. At the risk of personal liability, fines and family discord, these records must be transparent and made available to the courts, nursing homes, and social security administrators, as well as family members.

Under the leadership of Nancy Meyers, a Pennsylvania attorney, the team at Advocord developed a mobile responsive, web-based software platform that is a compliance tool that effectively protects those who have a fiduciary/legal obligation to act on the behalf of another. Advocord features information/document storage, organization, report generation, time tracking, and information sharing, while also linking to the company’s compiled educational resources.

Most importantly, however, Advocord builds a record of information to better protect the person being cared for – some of our most vulnerable individuals. “It was very important to me that the system I created was always centered around what is best for the person in need of assistance,” said Nancy. Therefore, Advocord is designed to guide the advocate to gather a complete record of all information needed to make good decisions on the other person’s behalf.

These features have caused investors to take notice as well. To date, investors have put up more than $2 million toward the development and commercialization of the product. Attorney Meyers commented, “Through my work with guardianship and power of attorney clients for more than 17 years, I recognized the need for an easy-to-use, automated process that would remove the complications and risks associated with a paper or manual system of record keeping.”

Web3 Scam Protection Startup, Delenium, Finds 400% More Phishing Websites than Industry Leaders

Web3 isn’t safe. In 2021, crypto scammers stole $14 billion dollars ( from unsuspecting users. A solution must be found. To create a democratic financial future of the internet, newcomers and advanced users alike need to feel comfortable with their funds. Delenium (, a Web3 scam protection solution, is at the forefront of this effort. By protecting the way Web3 users interact with decentralized applications, Delenium is revolutionizing the security infrastructure of Web3.
Like any new and unregulated technology, scammers deploy tactics to unlawfully extract value from users. In blockchain, that value is often tokens from a hot wallet. Hot wallets are cryptocurrency wallets connected to the internet which makes them convenient but high-level targets for scammers. Given their inherent security risks, blockchain-related scams from digital wallets are more common as Web3 applications gain traction. With large amounts of money being stored and flowing into cryptocurrency wallets, scammers issue false transactions and phishing websites that can set users back anywhere from hundreds, thousands, and even millions of dollars.

Delenium is solving this rampant problem in an approach never before utilized in the crypto space. The Delenium team brings more than a decade of experience in building robust intelligence infrastructures across several industries. The team is reinventing their experience in technologies utilized by elite cybersecurity militaries, startups, and corporations to further secure this new age of the internet.

Nadav Meiroviz, the co-founder and CEO of Delenium, commented on the rise of scams and how Delenium is preventing this.

“We’ve seen in the last few years that Web3 has become a wild west of scams. It’s literally not safe to use your wallet anymore. Delenium’s mission is to stop this. We’re extremely proud to be creating a safer Web3 through our intricate scam detection techniques, and our network of data sensors around the internet and its underlying blockchain layers. Our recent beta launch of our chrome extension has been quite effective so far in showing our scam protection powers. We have several major announcements in the pipeline, and we are quite excited to change the security paradigm of Web3.”

Delenium sensors have flagged tens of thousands of websites using a range of data so far. By deploying automatic sensors onto several distinct corners of the internet, the network of sensors is the first-line of defense in defending users of decentralized applications. When users accidently go onto scam websites, Delenium’s chrome extension immediately blocks them and prevents them from connecting their wallets. Their flagging mechanism is unparalleled in its accuracy when compared to current industry-leaders.
