As we told you in our last post, the KYC (Know Your Customer) is a process carried out by financial institutions to verify the identity of their customers. Although it may seem a little bit dull, the KYC is necessary, since in 2010 the Law on the Prevention and Fight against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing was adopted.
A few days ago, we launched our investment platform, in which you can buy OneUP Tokens and be part of the STO (Security Token Offering) that will break all the records. So, as it couldn’t be otherwise, you need to validate your account. Therefore, we will explain, step by step, all the process you must follow, so you can have you account ready to invest.
What is the validation process or KYC?
According to a study by the Forrester Consulting, 39% of the companies analyzed and based in Europe, the Middle East and Africa suffered the consequences and fraudulent actions in 2016. In particular, in Spain and Italy this figure reach the 45%. In these type of cases, we can’t forget that these practices harm both the user and the company. The loss of trust appears in the blink of an eye.
This process arose from the fight against money laundering, such as money obtained from illegal practices like terrorism, organized crimes or drug trafficking. However, over time and the and the advent of the internet, this validation process has acquired another function: to avoid online fraud.
After filling out the boxes with your personal information, we know that it may seem boring to answer a questionnaire or attach several documents, but it is very necessary. Once all your data is collected, the financial institution will link all the pieces and establish your own profile.
