Ape O’Clock KYC uses a rigorous, AML and KYC regulatory compliant identity verification process to ensure the accuracy of the identification information submitted to us. Why? Fake IDs aren’t difficult to obtain. Deepfake video technology can make a pre-recorded video appear as if it’s live, and/or make it appear that someone is in a video when they actually aren’t. Developer KYC is useless to consumers if it can be easily faked, gamed or spoofed.
We realize that the thorough and robust process we’ve put together might deter some projects from wanting to KYC with ApeOClock. Someone who intends to rug would likely choose a KYC service with less exacting standards.
With Ape O’Clock KYC, you can build trust with your investors and prospects that there is a real person behind the project, while still maintaining your anonymity.
The project owner will receive a link to e-sign an agreement. The agreement states that:
The project owner will submit identity verification documents (back and front). Identity verification documents could be a passport, ID Card or Driver’s License. Documents with barcodes are scanned to ensure the barcode is legitimate. The extracted identity information is automatically checked against national databases to ensure authenticity, while the document’s appearance itself is also checked for signs of fraud.
The device and network the user is on at the time of submission, coupled with personal data from the identification document is analyzed by machine learning to identify any inconsistencies.
Step 4A biometric analysis and liveness / anti-spoofing assessment is conducted, ensuring the ID photo matches the face of the user submitting them. Both video and still images of the user are collected and evaluated during this step.
Step 5The identity verification information collected in steps 2-4 is weighed as a whole and given a “pass” or “fail” status by the AI.
Step 6The final step is a manual review. The e-signed agreement from Step 1, and its associated metadata is compared to the identity verification data collected in steps 2-5 to ensure consistency and completeness. Assuming it all checks out, the Project is awarded “KYC by Ape O’Clock” status.
Step 7They KYC project is notified that they passed the KYC process.
Their event will be updated to include the “ApeOClock KYC” label on the main calendar, as well as on the individual event page:
The project may use “KYC by Ape O’Clock” badges on their site, social media accounts, marketing materials, etc.:
And finally, Ape O’Clock will post to our social media accounts announcing the KYC, with a custom graphic:
