How to perform KYC with OneID

What is KYC?

Know Your Customer aka KYC means collecting certain information from customers to confirm their identities and to comply with any regulatory requirements. Identity verification requires information that could be whatever-document-to-prove-your-identity, like a valid ID card, passport

This requirement depends on the Launchpad and is due to national and/or international regulations that project this functionality in the case the Launchpad project needs it.

Preparing for the KYC process

To use the KYC feature, you will need to prepare the following necessary things below:

  1. Identification documents, such as National Identity Card or Passport. You must be at least 18 years old.

  2. Register to obtain an ID on OneID. You can find the instructions for registering OneID here.

  3. Prepare 20 C98 VRC25 or C98 BEP20 to pay the KYC fee. Note that if you choose to pay with C98 BEP20 (BNB Smart Chain), you must also prepare a small amount of BNB to cover the gas fee.

Important Note

  1. Please note that once you pay the KYC fee (20 C98), you will have 3 attempts. If you fail all 3, you must repay the fee to resubmit KYC.

  2. If you have not registered any ID on OneID, you will not be able to access the KYC page.

  3. Your KYC data will be linked and stored with the corresponding ID. If your ID is transferred to someone else and the recipient claims ownership through Reclaim Permission, your KYC data will be removed. You will need to restart the KYC process from the beginning.
