CoinDCX adopts Onfido Verification System

A customers KYC is the most significant process in any company and CoinDCX places it on the top priority. While most of the companies in India take 5-6 days for the verification process to be successfully completed, CoinDCX was committed to maintaining the 24-hr timeline for the completion of the process. After the partnership, CoinDCX is expected to fasten the verification process to just 5 min.

Our users are at the core of every decision we make at CoinDCX and a streamlined experience is very important to us. The #TryCrypto initiative is about providing helpful tools, lowering the barriers to entry, and providing access to the crypto assets in order to enable mass adoption. By integrating Onfido’s technology we can only simplify the KYC experience for users but also give our users peace of mind by providing the highest level of fraud protection. Onfido’s cutting edge and next-generation technology will enhance CoinDCX’s compliance, safety, security, and performance, as it has with so many other companies in the past.”

However, the government has maintained the user’s data with a picture for all the required documents. Onfido artificial intelligence verifies the identity of the user by checking the details and photos entered with that of the data present in the government’s data.
