The IDnow product range around KYC fits perfectly to the expectations of crypto customers and can be installed without friction in their ecosystem like smart contracts etc.

Marc Degen, Co-Founder & Member of the Board at

It was clear to us for our ICO that we wanted to offer our investors a technological best-practice-approach that was properly regulated. The services of IDnow were therefore essential.

International Regulation

After a long period of uncertainty in the ICO and crypto market, some regulators have started to clear the fog. The first countries referred to laws governing ICOs and crypto platforms and last but not least, the way they have to identify their customers. Depending on the country they are operating in or the tokens they are using, they can use either IDnow Crypto-Ident Photo or Video.
