trade.io, a cryptocurrency exchange with a very successful ongoing ICO, announced the plans for partnering with Civic – a blockchain-driven identity verification service. Civic is a pioneer in this field and boasts that their services reduce the overall cost of Know Your Client (KYC) requirement.
This is a step in right direction, because trade.io presents the only available cryptocurrency liquidity pool with 50% of the daily revenue designated to participants' payout. And utilizing Civic's services in this case will allow to qualify the clients for exchange and liquidity pool a lot faster, cheaper and, most important, in compliance with the law, so there wouldn't be any unpleasant surprises from the legal side of things.
trade.io CEO Jim Preissler commented on the partnership in question. He pointed out that the main problem in the world of finance is not only getting people to trade fast, but also to make the whole process AML-compliant without disrupting the trade and ease of access to the platform. Also the scalability of the service is crucial to continuous and growing ecosystem like trade.io.
As for the ICO, trade.io has already managed to collect more than 9500 investors, who contributed over $19 million to the creation of the first blockchain-based trading and exchange platform.
