Veriff handles millions of verifications a year and has the potential to establish the infrastructure for trust in a growing digital economy. We are here to help honest people be trusted and to eventually create a single digital identity for every connected person on Earth.
To help us achieve this ambitious vision, the people of Veriff are expected to make decisions independently and take responsibility and ownership over what they create. Want to learn more about the people and history of Veriff? Check out our story here.
We are thrilled to unveil Veriff’s new brand identity, reflecting our next stage of growth and our mission to bring real safety, protection and transparency to the internet. Here’s more on why we did it.
At present, financial institutions such as banks are required to investigate their clients and their sources of wealth or funds. But, until now, many other financial gatekeepers have been exempted from so-called ‘due diligence rules’.
If new legislation passes, it will mean that all NFT marketplaces will have to assess the risk of illicit finance flowing through their systems and carry out identity checks on new customers and suspicious transactions.
