On Wednesday, trade.io, a Swiss blockchain company, announced that it has finalised a strategic partnership with SelfKey, a blockchain-based self-sovereign identity system. With the help of SelfKey, trade.io wants to streamline the registration process for its upcoming cryptocurrency exchange.
According to the statement, trade.io polled its community and found that investors want its exchange to have an easy registration system. This includes no security and back office delays.
To combat this, traders can upload their know your customer (KYC) details to the SelfKey platform. This includes documents such as passports, government-issued identification cards and bills that can be used to verify your identity.
SelfKey is an identity system based on blockchain that allows individuals and companies to control their digital identity. The platform provides traders with the ability to manage their cryptocurrency portfolio and onboard onto financial, immigration and cryptocurrency services.
