Full Definition:

KYC means “know your customer” and is a term for laws required by many countries that requires financial institutions to collect information about their customers for anti-money laundering (AML) and other regulatory requirements.

Providing KYC involves uploading personal informaiton to a service or app such as name, phone number, and address, as well as verifying this information with documents such as a drivers license or passport.

As of July 30th 2022, VeVe started requiring KYC from all users in order to unlock features such as participating in the marketplace or cashing out their gems to crypto or fiat.

KYCing on VeVe requires providing personal information, as well as providing a photo ID and proof of address.

Users who complete KYC are considered “VeVeVerified” within the app, and gain a full access to the app’s features.
