Three-step Verification

Step one

Step one verification is a simple KYC (Know your customer), which must be done by every user and customer to withdraw as recommended in Directive 2018/843. Disregarding the payment choice, the amount of payment, the amount of withdrawing, the choice of withdrawing, and nationality of the user or customer, step one verification must be done before any withdrawal or transaction to another user can be made.

Step one verification is an online document that must be filled out by the user/customer himself faithfully. The following information must be filled in: first name, second name, date of birth, country of usual residence.

We do not allow any withdrawal of funds until the KYC is filled in and approved. In case of misinformation or unfaithful filling in, the company may hold the funds until the KYC is approved. We might ask you to do Step two verification before withdrawing any funds if you filled in intentionally wrong information in the KYC online document.

Step two

Step two verification, an ID check, and electronic origin check must be done by every user which deposit over a certain threshold as mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366 or withdraws a certain threshold as mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366 or sends another user over 50% (fifty percent) of the threshold as mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366 over 24 months.

Until step two verification is done, the withdrawal, tip or deposit will be held. Step to verification will lead the user or customer to a subpage where he must submit his ID. The user/customer has to take a picture of his ID. Only an official ID may be used for ID verification; depending on the country, the variety of accepted IDs may differ. (Normally, these are: Driving license, Passport, Identity card. Depending on your country of origin, this may variate).

There will also be an electronic check if the filled-in personal data from step one verification, the KYC, match. The electronic check will check via two different data banks to ensure the given information matches the filled document and the ID's name. Also, this electronic check cross-checks the origin of the user or customer and his state of residence and address.

If the electronic test fails or is not possible, the user/customer must send in a confirmation of his current residence. A certificate of registration by the government or a similar document is required. In cases where no such certificate exists, the utility bills of the last 3 (three) months may be used.

Step three

Step three verification, verification of the source of funds, must be done by every user which deposit over the second threshold mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366 or withdraws over the second threshold mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366 or sends another user over 60% (sixty percent) off the second threshold as mentioned in Directive (EU) 2015/2366), over 24 months.

Until step three verification is done, the withdrawal, user tip, or deposit will be held. For step 3, a user/customer will be asked for a source of wealth. The user or customer has to upload a document proving his source of wealth via a subpage.

Source of funds/wealth

If a player buys tokens for over five thousand euro, there is a process of understanding the source of funds/wealth.

Examples of SOW are:

  • Ownership of business

  • Employment

  • Inheritance

  • Investment

  • Family

The origin and legitimacy of that wealth must be clearly understood. If this is not possible, an employee may ask for an additional document or prove.

Customer Identification and Verification

The formal identification of customers on entry into commercial relations is a vital element, both for the regulations relating to money laundering and for the KYC policy.

This identification relies on the following fundamental principles:

A copy of your passport, ID card, or driving license, each shown alongside a handwritten note mentioning a six digits randomly generated number. Alternatively, the copy of your passport, ID card, or driving license, each shown alongside your face clearly visible.

Please note that all four corners of the ID have to be visible in the same image, and all details have to be readable besides the named above.

An employee may do additional checks if necessary, based on the situation.

Proof of Address

Proof of address may be done via different electronic checks, which use different databases.

If an electronic test fails, the user or customer can make a manual proof of address. A recent utility bill was sent to your registered address, issued within the last 3 (three) months, or an official document made by the government that proves your state of residence.
