Since I am just a new bounty hunter. I look for an ICO which has no KYC or has less personal information required.

Parents always teach kids not to trust strangers and not to give any information online especially copy of passports, id and other documents.
Funny, today's kids are making people to give them credentials and the best part is - they will even take money for it.

I find that to be unreasonable, we are selling our information cheaply
You are not selling anything, you are the one who is paying to give your credentials to some random person on internet   Roll Eyes

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
Of course there is choice, you can choose not to give your documents. Is your identity worth couple of hundred dollars?  Undecided

I will certainly never send my personal data over the internet. The fear is great in me that this data is stolen.
I'm definitely one of the few people who have never bought anything online.

This is the reason people do not participate in many ICO where they require the KYC to be done as they are not sure how they will use the data and sell it . Thus it is better not to only own such ICO coins where the risk is higher.

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




This adres http://wallstyizjhkrvmj.onion where they sell that shit





That's really frightening. I'm sure that this kind of case can only be possible by those airdrop participants. Most of them are uneducated and the proof is they still continue to join even there are a lot of scams there and even KYC is a must. I want to salute my fellow participants who did not give up any of their info just for a small amount.

This why usually i will skipped ICO with KYC required because i was fear they will stole my personal ID but unfortunately that some of people were not too aware about scam ICO with KYC purposse and all of they think is how to get money but they looks never thinking the risk from provide our personal ID to someone else
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.
Unprofessional? You think scammers care about ethics or something? If they do, they would not be a scam in the first place, don't you think? What is very important for investors is to know how they want to be sharing their information, where they want to share such information and what they are actually sharing.

Every Tom, Dick and Harry nowadays want to invest in ICOs without understanding all that is needed to invest in the first place and that is where they usually get their hands burned eventually until they not just lose their funds but in this case, lose their identities as well.

You can see how resourceful the people is... they do everything even faking some important document as well. This is not new here in crypto market, but this one is so new cause the KYC/AML is just started on this year 2018, if I'm not mistaken.

But is it illegal to make a fake KYC/AML as a bounty hunter? Sometimes I don't want them to know who I am, cause I'm a disable person, just a sort of...

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.
When we have to work hard to earn a living, they take their identity to make a living, so brazen and shameful to those who are doing so. After this I must carefully consider when giving my KYC to them.

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!


It is interesting that you bring this point and you are correct even icos need to be very careful about which partners they choose to take, I have seen many icos collapsing even if they had a good project and a good set of developers just because one person infiltrated into the ico and decided to destroy the project from the inside, so it is critical not only that we protect our information, the developers of icos need to do the same with their information and with our information.

You should not provide KYC, personal information, images to people or uncertain projects. Giving information means that it can be used illegally. I will not risk strangers totally on the internet just to get rewards without any value.

And this should be the reason why people should take DYOR seriously as much as possible. A lot of investors and most especially newbie investors are too lazy to want to research on a project and for heaven sake, in this regard, you are not just dropping your hard earned money, but you are also dropping your information which even has to do with your identity. This is some crazy stuff to do without doing the properly needed thing to do before even going ahead with any investment.

So many people or will I say wannabe users looking for free money are the ones who get to be a victim of this as well as those who just tend to want to invest in anything without even doing proper due diligence. I have seen so many projects requesting for KYC that have turned to scams before, and this is a bad thing for those who do not take the pain to research on what they are investing in before even investing in it at all. This is usually some of the results.

This is an opportunity to lie in giving data, KYC does not have to be honest. maybe there are some people who give data that has died. sound cheating but to prevent abuse it might be forced to do.

We just have to lose money just to lose kyc for ico scam. So I think kc when ico is not successful is not really necessary. We have nothing to protect ourselves, no law. Too easy to make a scam behavior.

This crypto market is not regulated so all these projects are not screened by any reputed institute or governments so it is not recommended to provide your personal information to these unknown online people. The best thing you can do it wait for them to list on exchanges then can buy but even though prices may be slightly higher but still it worth to wait for them to list on exchanges. I provided my documents only to a couple of reputed exchanges but not sure how they can secure these documents.

Giving is usually not the problem, but being careful who you give it to or where you share it to; is actually what you should be more considered about.

Yes, there have been quite a good number of projects that required KYC and these days a lot of exchanges as well require KYC, and in that case, the only thing you can do is to be very careful you have done a lot of research to know if this is a reputable place to be doing a KYC verification or not. No one can be trusted when it comes to online matters, even Facebook Inc. ended up selling people's data, so in a digital space, anything kind of goes.

This is why KYC is not a must if the ICO is not a success yet. They also distribute the token after ICO so why do we need to do KYC at first?
Well doing KYC for investment is not a hundred percent sure for the team also as people can give fake information and documents.

Personally, I am also concerned with all of these KYC requirements done by many ICO projects. When in fact, they are not required to do it since they are not all selling securities and bounty hunting promotion just constitute not more than 5% of the token volume and they are all distributed evenly with many participants. There must be something wrong here. I participated in the bounty of OPEN Platform and though they are in fact based in USA they never required KYC for their bounty participants...so how come those who are based in other countries are in fact the ones requiring KYC?

Yea, thats a very very concerning to everybody if it going true. Everything can be happen in virtual world. Scammers are always doing research how simply they will take your money. So if a scammer target anybody he will try everything to hack money from that account. Actually there is nothing to do here whey we have to give documents to make KYC.

Yes, You are absolutely right. This is very alarming as well as shocking matter for us. Many scam projects are taking our valuable documents in the name of KYC. KYC should be stopped from this Forum.
