I agree. This is very risky because we do not know the credibility of the people whose making airdrops. Then we are going to provide them our personal identity in return of a small amount of their token. These people may steal our identity and that is a threat to us.

Despite the risk of being exposed or being stolen the data and sold to someone else in the dark net, the reward we may get from joining an airdrop simply too little. too much risk we must face for few dollars of reward.
Even if I were paid for $1000 to give up my data, I won't do that. So be careful guys. Someone might take advantage of this thing and you'll probably get yourself into a condition that's bad.

I have recently seen where bounty hunters were asked to present identifying documents.  Am really against kyc because one of the reasons I joined crypto was the anonymity which it provides. But sadly that's gently creeping away.
Now this KYC has come into airdrops. Imagine am to submit my ID to some I don't know which planet he or she or they are from for some pennies worth tokens. 
It's terrible and this is a bad precedence these people are setting.
If as a community we do not say no to this,  then it would become the norm.

I don't usually join airdrops because of the bad experiences in the past that most of them are scams and bogus and so many members who could prove that facts.
KYC seems one of the ideas that bumped my attention in the past weeks but I don't think KYC is necessary on Airdrops. Seems pretty awkward that giving your full identity but you'll end up on getting less or handful of free tokens and worst, you'll getting nothing.
KYC is a good way to proof that the receiver isn't bogus but in the real world, everything can be faked so there's no point those participants are giving their real ID and documents proving that they're humans.

It is not nice to have a kyc on airdrop because it was free they can stole your identity on that so I'm against in that kyc, for me we don't need to do kyc in any campaign we work for it and giving your through identity is not appropriate and specially it is not sure that 100% they not going to use it on doing bad things so better to choose a camp that didn't use a kyc.

Better stay away from this kind of Airdrops don't entertain. I think no Airdrop will ask KYC but if someone asks means just ignore that airdrop. Giving our personal information to strangers is not safe. and can you please share in which Airdrop they asked KYC? because i joined many airdrops but no one asked me KYC.

I strongly agree with the statement. Giving you real identity will expose ourself on wrong future modus.
KYC is good and some point - effective but knowing that giving your identity to the organizations you don't know then it will make you higher chance of getting into trouble in the future.
This is not really the most effective way to regulate ICOs or regulation everything precisely because we really don't know what happened next after we gave them our identity and our crypto assets will then exposed because nothing can be hidden even we're passing through thousands of wallets before getting into the original one.

You don't need to be an expert or a crypto veteran to realize that handing you private documents to an anonymous (what an irony!) party for only a fist full of dollars is a dangerous gamble. I have participated in a few airdrops and was hesitant to join with my social media accounts, yet alone hand out my identity to someone I don't know nothing about and I am a newbie ! I hope people wise up to this threat and stay away from whoever requires KYC for an airdrop.

it's airdrop, so when airdrops requires KYC then we better not participating and probably it will result nobody cares about their ICOs, project and coin if they really wanted people will give their identities. I think it's not that effective because I don't think people would agree on giving their real identities just for a handful of tokens.
Airdrops are being noted as the worst thing in cyprto because most of them are scams and bogus, so imagine you are giving your identity on scammers then that's the end of your life. Lol.

If a project asks you to do KYC stuff, you should stay away from that unless there are a big chance your credential would be used for criminal stuff  and abuse your data. For the sake of bounty, you shouldn't risk your security just for a dust.

Why is it? It's the only way I know to avoid multi-account abusers. Can you make an alternative? I doubt that. Since you are getting tokens - it should not bother you to pass a KYC I think...

KYC procedures for airdrops simply are not acceptable - its a nonsense! Shady projects just can steal your personal information, sell it, and you will get serious problems later. Is it worth a couple of dollars? I think not. This is an unjustifiable risk:-\

I've also tryed to join some airdrops, and when i saw that they require KYC i just couldn’t believe my eyes. Obviously i didn't join those airdrops.
I think that it's too much even to provide the e-mail adress for an airdrop to be honest - a lot of them are scams and don’t even pay.

Ahaha .. are you serious? I think that now nothing can be done without KYC, it probably costs somehow to be smarter and create different services in order to bypass this need for KYC, because otherwise it will stop the whole process of crypto currency. Where is our anonymity online?

Except decentralization the idea of cryptocurrency is also that owners of crypto assets are not identifiable, so I am against KYC, but nowadays it became popular and most of ICOs are asking to pass it.

Why ICOs need investors IDs?
I think maybe to avoid money laundering, but you don't have to invest money in airdrops and bounties, so i have no idea why they need documents, but I am sure it is unsafe to send documents to someone you don't know for tokens which will worth pennies in the future or in most case will be shit coins and worth nothing.

It's not ideal to KYC but for ICO's it has to be done I suppose. Bit of a toss up between larger scale crypto adoption and thus security, or, more anonimity and lesser adoption speed. I think we'll find a sweet spot and there's always privacy coins to invest in.

I don't have merit yet, but if I did, you would get all of mine!  I totally agree with everything you said!!!   The whole purpose of crypto is to stay anonymous.  If I have to give any info for KYC, then what's the purpose?!?!?!  You have my full support in totally ignoring all projects that force KYC upon us.  Those projects go against what I think crypto should be for.  I hope many others realize this and do the same!

The sense of carrying out the KYC check is to prevent the money obtained by criminal means from investing. Participants in the generosity campaign do not invest in ICO projects. They are only engaged in advertising these projects, so that ICO can find its investors. At this forum everyone has the right to be anonymous. If a company wants to weed out signers with multiple accounts, it is not necessary to require identification data and copies of passports. To do this, it is sufficient to ask for initial registration of your mailing addresses and the name of the telegrams and check them for validity. This will greatly complicate the use of multiple accounts. On the other hand, the required data according to KYC can be sent fictitious with a foreign copy of the passport. So checking KYC vseravno does not give a hundred percent guarantee from the use of multi-accounts. But the damage to the anonymity of members of the forum it brings.
