Does The Bitcoin Way perform KYC?

AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and KYC (Know Your Customer) are regulatory frameworks under U.S. law that mandate financial service providers to collect, maintain, and report user information.

At The Bitcoin Way, we don't act as fund custodians, as we never possess enough keys to authorize transactions. Consequently, we are not obligated to conduct "KYC" procedures, which involve collecting personal identifying information from our customers. This aligns with our commitment to user privacy and security.

To prevent inadvertent involvement in potential illegal activities, we take a hands-off approach when users lose their keys. Rather than direct signing, we provide users with clear instructions on how to independently recover their keys. This approach maintains compliance and ensures we're not directly engaged in the signing process, all while respecting user autonomy.
