Hodlnaut Selects Jumio as its Trusted Partner for New Customer KYC and Onboarding
Fast, accurate, seamless verification process with Jumio’s KYC integration
Singapore, Apr 08, 2021 – Hodlnaut, a crypto borrowing and lending platform based in Singapore announced today a new partnership with Jumio, the leading provider of end-to-end AI-powered identity verification and eKYC solutions, to improve its Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and onboarding process. This partnership is set in light of Hodlnaut’s continual efforts to ensure its compliance with regulatory requirements in Singapore, set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
The partnership will allow Hodlnaut’s customers to quickly and easily complete ID and identity verification.
During the onboarding process, new Hodlnaut customers take a picture of their government-issued ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport) and a corroborating selfie. Jumio determines if the ID document is authentic and that the person pictured in the selfie matches the picture on the ID, providing an accurate verification decision in a matter of seconds and ensuring a customer-friendly experience.
“Having selected Jumio as our eKYC provider, we believe that this will elevate the user’s experience on our platform. We are confident that Jumio’s solution will support our compliance needs especially pertaining to meeting the regulatory requirements set by MAS,” said Juntao, CEO and Co-Founder of Hodlnaut.
“We are excited to partner with Hodlnaut to help them provide a seamless digital onboarding experience while meeting strict compliance mandates and deterring fraud,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio CEO.
