Introduction

At Currency Hub we strive to protect our users and our service from fraudulent activity. It is possible that certain crypto assets may be used for criminal activity. In order to prevent this, it is somtimes necessary for us to take measures to ensure the security of financial transactions. One of the best measures is a AML/KYC procedure, which allows us to confirm, that you are a law-abiding individual or corporation.

Currency Hub has a risk scoring system that is able to spot suspicious activity. If a transaction is flagged by the system, it is put on hold and the User is asked to pass AML & KYС verification. For the reasons of security, we are not able to disclose specific criteria of our system, however, it has proven to be very effective against money launderers, scammers etc.

Currency Hub service reserves the right to apply the AML/KYC procedure to certain Users, addresses and particular transactions of crypto assets. Application of the AML/KYC procedure is based on Currency Hub service internal policies and aimed at preventing and mitigating possible risks of Currency Hub service being involved in money laundering as well as any other illegal activities.

Currency Hub service will not enter a business arrangement with individual or entity suspected of or directly involved in money laundering, or in which the funds have been the source of illegal activity.

AML and KYC Procedure
