Understanding KYC

The Basics of KYC
Blockpass’ origins and goals lie firmly in the realm of Know Your Customer compliance. KYC is a vital but often inefficient process to ensure that, as far as possible, criminal interest can’t benefit from financial services. Blockpass works to improve the KYC process through efficiencies, convenience, user control, speed and flexibility.
To those who are new to or uninvolved with the industry, KYC can be unfamiliar, both as a term and as the identity of a pain point they are likely to have experienced more than once in their life. For that reason, we put out an article last year explaining KYC. Click here to read about KYC, its importance, issues surrounding it, what Blockpass is doing and other areas of interest.
