Some airdrops asking for AML/KYC  with airdrop estimated amount for less than $5. Will you sign up?
You can give your identity like as passport or driving license only for trusted exchanger not for any airdrop or ico.I think its so risk and why you give your valuable identity for some money.So first know more details where you upload and given your passport  or driving license nowadays most of the site sell  your identity so always try to safety

Most times, these airdrops are scam, so you need to be very careful with them.

In some large and steep bounties, yes, you can leave, but not in airdrops - this is very risky, because 98% of the time is a fraud and it is unclear for what purposes your data will be used.

For small amounts, you shouldn't.
If larger amounts or using a specific platform, First check the privacy policy of that service to make sure they won't sell/use it for more than verification.

I would not go through with KYC/AML for any amount, large or small. In the wrong hands, this could lead to identity theft and this information can be used to register for sinister services on the internet. A lot of these sites might also lose your personal data when they get hacked, so you would not have any clue what happens with that documentation.

How do you explain to the authorities if your KYC data was used to signup for some major scam?

NO! For your own safety, don't give anyone about your personal information from your passport. Say it's airdrop or ICO, don't do that. Providing foreign id card, driving license, or bank statement is more than enough. Passport information is very sensitive, this could be used to illegal actions by scammers. Also, you should ask ICO publisher to destroy any KYC data taken.

Well for me, it is. Because even if you used other identities like government ID's or company's ID, still the same information will appear on passport. Your name and your address were written there. And this is usually common requirements for KYC.

Bittrex and Binance have KYC, I think its normal to have some securities, we should just know that the company is legit and they they have necessary materials to protect our identity who came from legals.

That is true, early before now I use to specialize on airdrop. Getting at a point my wallet turn to spreadsheet. In different types of token. Secondly as online business need to keep your tools ready, that passports and any other Identification should be ready too. KYC is not a difficult task. But the truth about it, is information notification to the participate.

It depends on multiple factors, even if AirDrop is genuine but fails to keep KYC details secure then there are infinite possibilities of hackers misusing your identity. In the end, it depends on you to stake your privacy and risk the reputation for the sake of amount as less as $5. I would definitely ignore such Airdrops or any other schemes where I don't have much advantage of doing it. I am not blaming anyone but as we all know that we don't have a good experience of privacy in the era of the internet.

I advise you not to provide AML / KYC for airdrop at such low price. That's just the price they buy your information. They buy your information then they will sell your information for bad.
So we should not give them our own information for them. we can not know what will happen in the future if bad people hold very clearly our information.   Wink

I'm reading some abysmal things here. Please be aware that your personal data is one of the most valuable things you can own/have control over.

Let me make an analogy here:
We all know spam mails, right? We all more or less find them annoying and would really really gladly get rid of them, but we have also adapted to it. E.g. some use temporary email addresses others create extra email addresses in order to use them for the more shadier sites or just to avoid some of the spam. Nearly everyone has one or more addresses that they share only with the more important people like friends and family. At least I hope that this is the case.

There are countless of services that offer spare addresses just for this purpose. So people make all those efforts for the 'protection' of their email address but as soon as an airdrop or an exchange comes along and uses the three magic letters K Y C, people give freely their names, ids, and photos. I don't get it. Don't ever give someone your personal data unless you absolutely understand the risk involved. Identity theft already is a huge problem.

If you don't believe me, have a look what can happen:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPjgRKW_Jmk

So please, don't give away your data carelessly, not for an airdrop, not for any random exchange or other so-called 'company'.

That depends on you, I don't feel safe even if I gave to simply provide my phone number. So, the perspective is yours alone. Lot of people are signing up in there and not all of them suffers from it. Probably no one suffers from it but still, if I were you, I would not give away my passport details.

Personnaly for all ICO or exchange that need KYC I use watermark on my passport or ID.
For each ICO I create a special .png watermark "for XXXXXXX ICO Only" and I merge it with the picture of my passport in several place of the passport.
For the moment I only add one problem with a rejected kyc with this method but most of them accepted my watermarked passport.
So I strongly advice you to do it. With this they will have your ID but they won't be able to use it.
You can try to use those kind of website if your are not a Photoshop expert : http://www.picturetopeople.org/text_generator/others/transparent/transparent-text-generator.html

I thank you for the valuable information you wrote to us here - this is a good solution for this problem.
PS The truth is my opinion that we specify our data and so in many social places and for scammers there is no problem getting information ...

Most serious blockchain projects right now try to be fully legal and SEC compliant, especially if they offer some kind of assets or securities, so KYC/AML procedure is a must for them. I think it will be a standard soon for every ICO, since more regulations are coming to crypto world.

If I personally would refuse it. It's not worth what we get. Unless the requirement to follow ICO, or even get a reward from bounty program maybe I will give it.

Some ICO's are bound to implement KYC's due to strict restrictions and terms. About their legitimacy, maybe you can spend more time to research if they are really a legit company. There are ways to verified their legitimacy with the proper tools and recommendations that we can discuss on other discussions.

Anyways, airdrops are supposed to be not restricted at all. In my whole experienced of playing in a new alts, I've never seen an airdrop asking for KYC.

Can you tell us what Airdrop is that and linked their ANN thread here if available?

It depends on the ICO/AIRDROP project. for example if the project related banking/finance etc they must ask KYC. If you feel risky to share your passport then don't do/. Don't decide with current price. If the project is efficient in future the 5$ value coin might be thousands of Dollars. So think wise and act...
