KYC and AML FAQs


#1

Here are some common questions related to KYC:

Why are support directing people to this forum for KYC queries?

As you can imagine, with millions of registered accounts, there will be a range of similar questions being asked by users when doing their KYC verification.

If they are answered in this forum rather than in private support tickets, it will allow people to get answers to the common issues straight away without having to wait for a response. It also frees up support resource for doing the KYC checks rather than answering duplicate queries.

Before posting a question in the forum, please thoroughly read these FAQ’s and check the other threads created by users to see if your question has already been answered. Thank you for your patience and support during this busy time leading to the KYC go live date.

Why do I need to do KYC?

We have KYC in place to comply with EU regulations. This is required for commercial partners to start integrating with Electroneum systems. The Electroneum team are working with the London based company Yoti to undertake the KYC verification.

What is “Yoti”?

Yoti is a digital identity platform that makes it quicker, easier and safer for businesses to verify and authenticate their customers. The verification is done via the Yoti phone app which is then paired to your Electroneum online wallet for KYC verification.

Yoti was founded in 2014 and has a team of over 200 people with headquarters in central London, an office in India and a growing presence in the USA.

For further info on the company, and how they keep your data safe, please see their website:

My ETN is stored on a paper wallet, CLI or exchange, do I need to do KYC?

No. You only need to do KYC if you are using Electroneum systems (e.g. the online wallet or phone app).

Paper wallet, command line (CLI) and exchanges interact with the blockchain direct and do not require KYC verification.

What levels of KYC do I need to do?

Everyone must complete level 1 of KYC. This enables you to use up to 150€ of ETN within a 3 month period.

Level 2 is required if you wish to use over 150€ in a 3 month period (but up to a maximum of 10,000€).

Level 3 is for those using above 10,000€ (unlimited €) worth of ETN within a 3 month period.

What do I do if Yoti isn’t available in my country?

You need to go onto https://my.electroneum.com, go to settings, my profile and scan the QR code (or button if you are on a mobile device) with the Yoti app. Yoti will ask you to add basic information, which is uploaded to our system, then you need to upload an ID to our system so our team can verify.

The app doesn’t have an ID option because my ID doesn’t have an address.

This issue has been resolved. If you are still having an issue, please raise a support ticket at support.electroneum.com, which will we change to basic.

I don’t have a tax number.

Your tax number is your Social Security number or National Insurance Number. This will be the number you use for tax, government benefits, etc.

My ID doesn’t have a gender on it.

This issue has been resolved. If you are still having an issue, please raise a support ticket at support.electroneum.com

I don’t have any bills in my name or current address

We will accept forms of ID if you do not have any bills, but if you do have bills in your name, then those need to be uploaded.

The Yoti is not currently available in my country’s playstore

We are working with Yoti to make the app available in every country’s playstore

Yoti won’t allow me to upload my ID

You need to contact support (support.electroneum.com) to make sure you can do a basic Yoti. You will need to fill out some basic information on Yoti (after scanning the QR code on my.electroneum), and then upload your ID onto https://my.electroneum.com.

Do I need to redo KYC once I’ve completed it?

No, you only need to do the KYC levels once, unless you are required to.

What documents do I need to upload for level 1, level 2 and level 3?

Level 1: you do not need to upload any documents, but you do need to enter your name, country and time zone in the Settings->Your Profile section of the online wallet.

  • Driving Licence
  • Passport

Complete answers Rachel
One point is that regarding SSN, do you accept a copy of social insurance card from us? On that, there is my insurance number plus my name and family name! (In my country we only have this document related to insurance and so on)


#4

When I scan the QR code, the app redirects me to add the address and then try again. When I try to add my address in create ID section of the app, it asks me for passport. For Indian users, YOTI only demands for a passport which more than half of the population don’t have including me. I am stuck in level 2. Richard our angel, help us.


#5

So i did the YOTI KYC scanned the QR code to send YOTI profile to electroneum developers, i filled the next part of the KYC process on electroneum website /bank statement, tax number …/ yesterday, so how approximately long does the verification process take? Because i still got the option to send my bank statement, tax number, employe name again, dont know why.


#6

I do not have a passport, my ID card is in paper format and my driving license is in plastic but has a sticker paper for renewal date on the back, as in Italy it works this way!! As I already told to Yoti support it is not my fault, my document is perfectly legal and valid!!
I raised a ticket to ETN support and you told me to do the basic Yoti and then scan the qr on my electroneum dashboard but it can’t be done as the app needs my address too and doesn’t allow to put it in manually. So, in other words, they need my ID to have my basic yoti done, but they do not accept my document so I cannot move on. Can you define how to do a basic Yoti without ID if there is a way? Or provide me a workaround to be level 2 KYC verified? Thanks


#7

Hi, is this KYC For ICO Participants or for all new login people.


#8

#9

We need to know if is from 10 October necessary to fill KYC to receive payouts from mobile miner or not?


#10

It’s for everyone using the ETN app. You can still send as much as you like if it’s not via the app.


#11

Guys to get the Level 2, If I’m not working anymore ( I just stopped my last job) What should I put in "job title " and “employer”? thanks


#12

I put there None, i hope my etn will not be taken hostage till i find the work :smiley:


#13

Not sure what to do to make it to level 2 because:

  • Bank statement - i dont get any beceuse i use the internetbanking
  • Utility bill (gas, electric, broadband or satellite/cable TV only) - i dont get any, because i use e-accounts for these kind of services
  • Government issued tax statement - i dont get any - the employers makes this for us
  • Government issued benefit statement - i dont get any government benefit statements
  • Government issued state pension - dont have any

#16

#17

#18
