Peer2Profit helps you sell your bandwidth, and companies to purchase additional network bandwidth for their work. To protect both sides of the sale, we adhere to the principles of AML and KYC. In this article, you can learn what AML and KYC are and understand how they protect users (who sell bandwidth) and companies (our corporate customers who want to buy additional gigabytes).
AML or “anti-money laundering” is a set of measures against money laundering, bank fraud, terrorist financing and so on. To provide AML, financial organizations have to:
- verify customer’s data,
- monitor financial transactions,
- keep records of all procedures for subsequent audit,
- check their activity and report suspicious information to the authorities.
The consequences of money laundering can be significant for countries.This mainly contributes to the growth of economic offenses and illegal entrepreneurship. Moreover, the illicit money itself, brought into the country, can devalue the currency. These consequences may cause concern among the authorities.
The implementation of reliable AML systems helps to identify unwanted participants in financial schemes. This protects clients from fraud, organizations from financial losses in transactions of any type: whether you are a major supplier of materials and products or just try to sell your bandwidth.
AML uses technologies such as machine learning and Big Data analytics.
KYC stands for “Know Your Customer” and comes as a part of AML. It signifies process of collecting client’s data to verify their identity. Basically, companies want to know the following information:
- date of birth,
The verification procedure can require certain credentials, such as your ID. The final set of data required from the client may vary depending on the requirements of the companies and their technical capabilities.
An example of high-tech KYC methods is the collection of customer biometric data.
