Binance
2020-07-28 09:58

Why is Account Verification required for Naira (NGN) Fiat Channels? 

Binance is committed to maintaining the highest standards of Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering, and Counter-Terrorism Financing (CFT) compliance to prevent abuse of its products and services for money laundering and terrorist financing purposes. To achieve this, Binance has implemented sophisticated compliance and monitoring systems for its fiat gateways, which include daily monitoring tools such as on-chain monitoring for cryptocurrency transactions. Identification and verification of all its users allow Binance to protect its users and prevent fraud, on top of meeting its AML/CFT obligations.
