HBUS bitcoin exchange to use Onfido for level 2 identity checks

Popular Asian crypto platform Huobi’s U.S. strategic partner HBUS, which went live today, announced it has partnered with Onfido to perform mandatory Customer Identification Program (CIP) checks on traders attempting to obtain level 2 verification status on the platform. Onfido’s machine learning technology automates identity verification to enable speedy, secure and scalable access to HBUS’s exchange platform. With just a smartphone, HBUS users can take a selfie and a photo of their identity documents to start the level 2 CIP process.

HBUS is committed to bringing higher ethical standards to virtual currencies, and was impressed with Onfido’s use of Artificial Intelligence to deliver the most granular and accurate results, without compromising on speed or conversions. Onfido’s deep expertise on US regulatory requirements and commitment to turning compliance from a cost centre into a competitive advantage were also deciding factors.
