MyEtherWallet, a popular cryptocurrency wallet, in collaboration with the Swiss company Bity, introduced the Fiat service, which allows you to exchange digital assets for euros and Swiss francs without verification.

It is noted that the service is available to all bank account holders with an international bank account number (IBAN).

Bity is able to offer this kind of KYC-less Exit-to-Fiat gateway because it is compliant with the Swiss Anti Money Laundering Ordinance (AMLA). This, along with technology that helps verify proof of wallet-ownership, allows Bity to realize the friendliest kind of user experience — frictionless, secure AND regulatory compliant.

This information is transmitted to Bity to comply with legal requirements and is not stored by MyEtherWallet.
