a topic posted KYCbench in PressThe creation of new digital economy has two components: the modernisation of the existing “analog” economy, and the construction of a fundamentally new “crypto-economy”, which is based on new digital products and assets. Its manifestations are not only the beginning of payments in crypto-currencies or the receipt of investments using ICO procedures as a form of crowd-funding, but also the generation by telecommunication companies, social networks or search engines of new digital profiles of subscribers that do not fall under the current law on personal data. If in the former case there is an established system of law, then in the second – the world has to create it anew, starting with a single glossary and ending with civil-law relations. It is for this reason that the head of the IMF Christine Lagarde, who can hardly be called a proponent of the distribution of crypto currency, called for regulating this industry systematically and without excessive rigidity. And this was one of the main results of the meeting of finance ministers and heads of G20 central banks in Buenos Aires. World regulators already recognize crypto assets, but still hesitate to call them money. The pace of development of crypto-economics amazes and overturns all forecasts about the next speculative soap bubble. The volatility of the crypto currency, which we observe, is a common occurrence for newly emerging industries. Recall how through the ups, downs and at some point the cleaning up of excess garbage was born the world IT industry, as appeared Apple, Amazon, Google. With the advent of blocking technology and digital assets, this industry is moving into a new quality. It is enough to look at the growth in the number of projects and investments in blockchain over the past three years. ➡️ Read our article to learn more!! https://www.kycbench.com/rules-for-cryptoinvestors-how-not-to-prevent-rise-of-new-industry/ Join our Telegram Groups: https://t.me/kycbench (KYCBench Announcement) https://t.me/KYCBenchOFFICIAL (KYCBench Community) KYCbench, your reliable KYC partner www.kycbench.com GDPR & ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliant
Telegram messenger announced in their blog a launch of a cloud-based service for verification and storage of users documents in July 2018. Users will be able to upload their documents to the cloud with end-to-end encryption and have them always at hand. As explained by the developers, Telegram Passport is a single way of authorization for services that require identification. Before that, users had to enter their personal data every time while registering and entering new applications and with new function from Telegram this will be allowed at a time. To do this, the Telegram Passport service will be able to upload your data – photos, scans of documents, information about bankcards, and then share this data with various Internet services that require confirmation of identity. Telegram assures that all documents and personal data will be stored in the messenger’s cloud using end-to-end encryption. “For Telegram, this data is just a random set of words, and we will not have access to the information that you keep in your Telegram Passport. When you share your data, it will be transferred directly to the recipient. <…> In the future, all Telegram Passport data will be moved to a decentralized cloud”, the developers said in an announcement. Telegram now has a lot of information about its users’ preferences and about their phones, but it’s difficult to actually identify the user. If the so-called digital profile will be applied (with personal data, address, name), they will grow in price by times. However, the data that users provide about themself will not be reliable enough, and for most services, information verification will be required. Therefore, most likely, Telegram Passport will come in handy as a niche product for ICO, since the fact of identification of the owner’s identity is important there. ➡️ Read our article to learn more!! https://www.kycbench.com/news-in-the-crypto-industry-telegram-passport/ Join our Telegram Groups: https://t.me/kycbench (KYCBench Announcement) https://t.me/KYCBenchOFFICIAL (KYCBench Community) KYCbench, your reliable KYC partner www.kycbench.com GDPR & ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliant
a topic posted KYCbench in Press5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive was recently adopted in the European Union. Accordingly to this directive crypto currency exchange platforms and wallet providers are regulated within the EU by anti-money laundering (AML) rules, including know-your-customer (KYC) requirements and reporting obligations for suspicious transactions. 5AMLD entered into force on July 9, 2018, and all EU-member states must implement its provisions in their national law by January 10, 2020. In July 2018, Cipher Trace published a report stating that crypto currency exchange theft in the first half of 2018 was three times higher for all of 2017, with a total of $1.5 billion in crypto currencies predicted to be lost to cyber-hacks by the end of 2018. According to the report, this increase in theft tripled the amount of crypto currency money laundering. The report was released just after another major exchange hack, the $31 million theft from South Korea’s Bithumb, and right before the recent hack of $13.5 million from Switzerland’s Bancor. ➡️ Read our article to learn more!! https://www.kycbench.com/5th-anti-money-laundering-directive-and-crypto-currency/ Join our Telegram Groups: https://t.me/kycbench (KYCBench Announcement) https://t.me/KYCBenchOFFICIAL (KYCBench Community) KYCbench, your reliable KYC partner www.kycbench.com GDPR & ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliant
A PEP is an individual with a prominent public role in a government body or international organisation. A PEP generally presents a higher risk for potential involvement in bribery and corruption by virtue of their position and the influence that they may hold. Immediate family members and close associates of the PEP are also PEPs. What happens when PEPs retire? In the UK they are de-PEPped after being out of power for a year, while in Guernsey and some other places, they remain a PEP forever. And because the PEP definition includes grandchildren, strictly speaking they should be considered PEPs forever too. In theory, money stolen or accepted in bribes by a corrupt PEP remains dirty forever – even when bequeathed to his heirs. So perhaps it makes sense to consider PEPs and the next two generations to be high risk and subject to enhanced due diligence forever. ➡️ Read our article to learn more!! https://www.kycbench.com/once-a-pep-remains-a-pep-forever/ Join our Telegram Groups: https://t.me/kycbench (KYCBench Announcement) https://t.me/KYCBenchOFFICIAL (KYCBench Community) KYCbench, your reliable KYC partner www.kycbench.com GDPR & ISO/IEC 27001:2013 compliant
