What is KYC?
KYC (“Know Your Customer”) is a process by which we request official documents from our clients to verify their age and other personal information. Including bank accounts (for Wire transfers) . KYC is essential in preventing money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
Why do AxAi customers have to KYC?
