What is KYC/AML?

In order to invest through CoinList, you need to pass identity verification and KYC/AML (Know Your Customer/Anti-Money Laundering) checks. These checks apply equally to U.S. and non-U.S. residents. In general, you will need to provide name, address, a selfie, and government-issued ID image.

Why do you need my Social Security Number (U.S. Clients only)?

Your SSN is required under our KYC/AML policy, a process set by our banking provider. We verify US investor's social security number and birthdate against credit records then verify the investment signatory against OFAC and similar databases to flag prohibited or high risk persons and entities.
