AML / KYC Settings

Your AML/KYC settings are created and configured here. One setting may be applied to all Terminals, or they may be individually configured, or anywhere in-between.

AML/KYC may be the most important aspect of your business, and it’s very important that you configure your system to comply with your regional laws. SEEK LEGAL COUNSEL!

General Bytes cannot, and will not, provide advice on your legal requirements. We are a global organization in a very fluid legal environment; we do not pretend to be legal experts or in any way qualified to answer questions that may potentially lead to violations of the law.

Reject PEPs:

PEPs (Politically Exposed People) must (by regional law) identify themselves during financial transactions. Enabling this option rejects those customers that are determined to be PEPs.

Allow Only Customers With Known Phone Identity

This option prevents Unregistered customers with anonymous phone numbers from attempting to use your BATMs that use this AML/KYC policy.

  • Only available in CANADA & the UNITED STATES.

  • Charged Service (0.13 USD per query) to your GB account.

  • Must also be enabled in your Organization settings.

Reject High Risk Transactions:

High risk transactions are those determined by a 3rd party after a target wallet address (BUY) or a sending address (SELL) is used. When enabled, transactions that are identified as “high risk” will be disabled.

Use External Registration Only:

An external system will be used to search for identities, otherwise the internal system will be used for identifying. This option should be enabled only if you use the instruction "Nothing, Go To Website" (see below).

Cryptoaddress Pinning

After being used by an Identity, a crypto-address will become exclusive to that Identity (for the “X” days specified in the Pinning Window).

  • Security measure to deter scamming.

  • Other Identities won’t be able to use the same wallet address during that window.

Pinning Window (in days)

See: Cryptoaddress Pinning (above).

Travel Rule Amount Threshold

Transactions above this amount (inclusive, in Default Fiat Currency configured below) will be submitted to the configured Travel Rule Provider. Lesser amounts will be ignored.

Configuration types:

  • If AML/KYC is not implemented, use Anonymous Limits to restrict individual transaction amounts.

  • Unregistered Customers have not completely satisfied (or do not require) KYC verification. Any limits used here must be higher than Anonymous limits, and less than Registered limits.  VIP limits (see: Identities) may be used for individuals to permit larger transaction sizes and discounts.

  • Registered Customers have satisfied your KYC requirements and can purchase up the limits set in this section. If implemented, these amounts must exceed all others. VIP limits (see: Identities) may be used for individuals to permit larger transaction sizes and discounts.

Total Terminal Limits
