CertiK has recently launched a new KYC Leaderboard on the Skynet for Community platform, enabling investors to identify trustworthy Web3 projects that have undergone CertiK's rigorous Know Your Customer (KYC) verification process.
The KYC Leaderboard aggregates essential team information such as geo risk, number of team members verified, project maturity, and other data. It also features a KYC ranking system with gold, silver, and bronze levels that offer insight into the KYC process results. This allows investors to quickly identify the most trustworthy projects while maintaining anonymity for project team members.
CertiK takes confidentiality and privacy seriously as part of the KYC process. None of the information displayed on the KYC project profiles includes personally identifiable information (PII).
Our rigorous KYC process begins with a founder interview and collecting key team members’ personal information, including their name, address, date of birth, and other details. We then use advanced technologies and methods to verify this information, including cross-referencing with public databases and conducting manual checks where necessary. Our team also uses AI-powered tools to detect any fraudulent activities or fake documents.
Once we have verified the team’s identity, we store their information securely and confidentially, protecting it from any potential data breaches or cyber attacks. We also regularly update our KYC process to remain effective against new and evolving forms of fraud, including ongoing monitoring of customer accounts and transactions for suspicious activities.
To date, only one CertiK KYC-verified project has caused harm to investors. We have been working in close coordination with law enforcement partners, who are actively pursuing the responsible individuals thanks in part to the information collected during the KYC badge process.
CertiK's commitment to KYC goes beyond just verifying the identities of our customers. We also strive to educate the community about the importance of KYC and provide insights into the latest developments in this field.
On our KYC page, you can find a wealth of resources that will help you understand the KYC process and why it's essential for Web3 projects. Our blog posts cover topics such as the latest KYC regulations, best practices for KYC compliance, and real-world examples of how KYC can prevent fraudulent activities.
We also feature a list of projects that have recently undergone our KYC verification process and case studies, highlighting the benefits of becoming KYC verified and how it can increase investor trust and confidence.
CertiK's Verified Teams KYC Leaderboard is a powerful tool for investors looking to make informed decisions about their Web3 investments or partnerships. As the importance of KYC verification in the Web3 space continues to grow, the KYC Leaderboard provides an easy way to identify verified projects and stay up-to-date with the latest KYC news and research reports.
