The man claims that he has “no idea” of the transaction’s participants or value, but the Ethereum network has confirmed the transaction.

What is verified here is the zkSNARK part of some real transaction on the real Zcash network. I pulled the data out of the chain sometime around January, I think.

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.

To use Exit-to-Fiat, the user must specify Bity as the service provider in the asset exchange section. You will also need to provide a phone number, bank account details and a billing address.

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

The maximum transaction size is limited to 5,000 francs (about $ 5,000).
