KYC/AML As New Regulatory Standards in ICOs
« on: August 27, 2018, 05:20:25 pm »

Know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money-laundering (AML) can become new regulatory standards for token distribution in ICOs. Why are they important? Let’s get into the details.

What Are KYC and AML?
KYC relates to due diligence activities performed by a financial institution or regulated company on their customers’ identities. KYC is extremely important when it comes to customer integrity and probity. To facilitate KYC, financial institutions and regulated companies need to monitor any violations of their customers’ transactions.

KYC includes:
* Basic identity information, which is called the Customer Identification Program (CIP) in the US
* Checkup against the existing blacklists
* Risk evaluation in terms of fulfilling the commitments
* Monitoring of previous transactions

It’s important to know that KYC regulations can differ from country to country. For the differences, head over to the KYCMap.

AML is a set of actions designed to prevent illegal profit-making. To detect laundering techniques, countries are advised to follow the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) recommendations. In terms of KYC, financial institutions and regulated companies are required to implement the local FATF procedures. Just like KYC ones, AML regulations can differ from one jurisdiction to another.

Procedures you have described here are a denial idea of cryptocurrency.

It is introduction of these procedures that has largely contributed to recession that we have for a year.

Anonymous way of sending money was invented not to verify it yourself.

Cryptocurrencies are heading in a dangerous direction. It is not about their prices relative to FIAT, but about way of further development and community.

Sheep entered  ranks of community. Sheep which  system has in their blood.
