KYC
KYC stands for “Know Your Customer.” It is a process where issuers and banks obtain information about their customers’ identity thereby ensuring that bank services and government regulations are not misused.
The KYC procedure is used when bank customers open accounts. Banks are also required to periodically update their customers’ KYC details. The purpose of KYC is to reduce the risk of identify theft, money laundering, financial fraud, and the financing of criminal organizations. KYC helps manage risks and helps to understand customer behaviors.
The onboarding of investors is done through our Bitbond Offering Manager API. This allows issuers to create and manage their own onboarding process. Once an investor has been added they can be managed through the Bitbond Offering Manager.
