Easiest way to do KYC checks

It is the easiest way to do KYC checks. In a matter of minutes ICO Pass verifies authenticity of person's ID documents, does a face-matching, checks Sanction lists and the country of origin & residency. After the identity is verified it is written in blockchain and the identity holder can choose to share this data with as many services as wants. We initially will focus on Token Sale organizers that need to do KYC checks in order to exchange crypto to fiat. However later on will offer the product to Exchanges, Banks and Governments.


  • 2018 February
    ICO launch. Product launch. Technically: validate that the owner of an Ethereum wallet has passed an ID background check stating that they are not part of a restricted set of users (e.g. US citizen or individuals on official watchlists). The background check is run via a third party, namely Onfido. The ICO Pass team has set up a smart contract system to record the outcome of the background check on the public Ethereum blockchain, i.e. whitelist Ethereum addresses that are owned by non-restricted users. Legal point of view: doublecheck with all the regulators in different countries how to even more effectively meet their requirements. Business: attract first ICOs from Europe.
