I think that ICO scammers will not just take off with your invested money.

Probably also they selling your ID. proof of Identity + Selfie + proof of Residenz
Uploaded KYC ID documents + selfies and address data are sold with large quantities on the darkweb, which are probably collected via scam projects.

What do you think?.

check these screenshots for example
-snip-

That's one reason why i don't do everything that KYC required from me. KYC is a no go for me, especially in the Crypto area. That's exactly what i don't want anyone to be able to buy my personal data on the internet later. besides, one advantage of crypto was that it's semi-anonymous and through KYC it's getting more and more removed. I just don't want and will not support that and hope that your contribution here will shake people up a little and they see how bad KYC is.  Wink

With this shit, im happy that i  used everytime a copy from my id card, but i chance the cart with photoshop. I change my name and birthday and my personal number to a non-existent person. my passport photo and selfie are only original. this way I prevent my id going to being stolen. I did used it at exchanges such as bittrex and poloniex and also several icos. I came everywhere through the kyc / aml without any problems. Wink

Proves to show that collecting all image capture can be easily replaced by normal text fields. I don't usually participate in KYC that requires submitting photo IDs. Text fields are still OK but isn't the best either.

Everyone of us is responsible for personal data and sensitive information. Before you give them to someone you should check all available information and make your due dilligence.
Unfortunately many ICOs turn to be scam and are a cover to get to personal data that will be later used for biger scams and that can make you some serious damage.
So, be very careful and don't just think about money because at the end money could be the least of your problems.

The beginning of my distrust with ICOs and Bounties are in the areas of ''white-list'' that they always hide under. It has gotten to the point that if I developed an interest in a particular project and I decide to check it out, the moment the information that is being asked in other to participate is invading on my privacy, I just move on without the option of coming back to check it out.

Its an open secret that peoples identity is being traded on the dark web but at least that one is being stolen and the original identity owner is not aware of but not for those who willingly gave those details because of few pennies that they would spend within few days while the whole definition of their existence is being traded to the both lowest and highest bidders depending on the circumstances.

Unfortunately, no matter how hard the message is being sounded, you will still see people engaging in these kind of activities because their identity is not so valuable to them unlike the immediate need they have forgetting that later in the future, they might even have the difficulty of proving that they are the person they claim to be because someone else has used their details.

This is a very interesting topic
it is the negative side of the centralized world
In the world of bitcoin and cryptocurrency we gain the trust of others by building a reputation
as in this bitcointalk forum, senior members will be much more trusted than junior members

To have a KYC in an ICO is good and healthy for the ICO and the team.
But at the same time it is not good and safe for the investors.
personal information are being shared, privacy is being in danger.
At first, Cryptocurrency was created and users be anonymous.

With this you can see again that interference from the government makes more damage than it helps.
bitcoin and the altcoins have been set up to be able to conduct fast money transactions anonymously and without the intervention of the central banks. due to their interference we have lost all these things.

wherever they know what they can earn or lose a lot of money, they oppose and are seen as something criminal.

drugs such as cocaine, xtc, mdma is forbidden and you are punishable because it destroys lives.
Acohol and tobacco, are just as damaging, but not forbidden, because they are heavily taxed and much earned by the government.
Cannabis suddenly becomes legally available in many places because they can now earn a lot of money because cultivation is controlled by the government.
 why are casinos not forbidden and online gambling games? It is still very addictive. That is also legal as long as the government can receive a lot of tax on this. crypto is just like that. if they can earn on it, it will be accepted

This is why I'm totally against ICO requiring bounty hunters to submit their KYC because it's possible that it can go to the darkweb and we all know that we don't like our identify to be stolen. Like this ICO:

https://thenextweb.com/hardfork/2018/02/07/sentinel-chain-ico-leak-passport/

Pretty much you are fucked up with your data found its way on the darkweb.

I think that is very terrible and you should not give your identity to ico which is not clear, try to make ico founder pass KYC to icobench.

yes you are right it is the worst possibility they will do and I hope you can avoid the ico program that tells you like that, because the cryptocurrency should be confidential privacy of the user there should be nothing to know if you submit a KYC like that will make yourself you are threatened because your identity can be used for criminal acts like that.
This is what I'm seeing as well, many people are avoiding the projects that ask for them to go through KYC and in my opinion it makes complete sense, cryptocurrencies are supposed to give you some level of anonymity and the regulations put in place are trying to take that away from their users and I really think it's not fair and that we should not allow this anymore.

It is terrible but once invested in ICO will encounter this situation. Icobench also should not trust absolute, the expert will also have a mistake. While too many ICO scams, information leakage is inevitable.

Even ICOs need to be careful who they partner with for KYC purposes.

We came across a third party who offered their services for KYC and AML, before discovering they had been accused recently been accused of blackmailing another ICO. More can be read about it here - https://officialtedblog.com/tokenget-blockchainmob-mobilink-coin/

Bottom line is you must to be careful when sharing any kind of sensitive information with any third party. Your ID is more valuable than your private key. Too much personal information about us is currently online - don't put any more on there than is absolutely necessary. Especially for an airdrop!

Now I see one of the major reasons why a lot of users in this space are always never comfortable with KYC unless they just feel it is a project worth proceeding or some group of team that can be trusted which like you said most of the whole KYC thing is outsourced. Honestly this is just crazy!

This is really a very unprofessional way of doing bad projects, which discredits investors for ICO projects. I hope these projects will soon be excluded from this market to provide a better investment environment.

It is unfortunate all this is happening in the crypto world. We are being prone to data compromise each and every day. This is a call for action for bounty hunters to be conscious of the kind of programs we join.

Yes for me it's against my will sometimes to give information about me if I'm a little bit doubt about the project. But there's no choice but to submit documents inorder to receive tokens we bought or from bounty campaign
