We are 'Know Your Customer' (KYC) compliant

KYC is a legally mandated process of establishing and verifying a user's identity. Regulatory obligations placed on TradFi operators also include understanding the nature of a customer's activities, qualifying that their source of funds is legitimate, and assessing any money laundering risks associated with a customer.

Combating the Financing of Terrorism

Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), refers to a set of standards and regulatory systems intended to prevent terrorist groups from laundering money through the banking system or other financial networks. These practices require organizations to collect identifying information on their clients, as well as the origins of significant funds.

How KYC works

with Ottó

Each Ottó account holder will complete KYC once. Ottó users will register for an account through our portal and submit documentation for KYC verification to Jumio, our third-party KYC provider. Jumio delivers a streamlined and secure KYC process to onboard users into the Ottó ecosystem.



Once verified, each market participant will be issued with a NFT (non-fungible token) which attests to their verified identity and is linked to their associated wallet and Ottó account. The NFT will work as a digital form of identity to signal that each user has been identified and verified without disclosing personal details to any other participants in the ecosystem.
