When it comes to your valuables, assets, finances or money, security is the first thing you look for. You want your money to be safe. You want to have full ownership of it. You want only you to decide for your money. And when it comes to digital currency, most of us, even the players in the world of finances, have a sharp eye on how, when and where our money is going. This tight inspection is extremely essential and must ideally be appreciated. After all, your finance is your power!
And hence, since 2013, Unocoin has been tirelessly serving the Indian digital assets community with one of the main goals: Security.
We have always believed in offering our customers the best and most secure blockchain services.
Offline, Encrypted Security Insured
Crypto is a purely digital entity that can only be stored in digital form. The important affair for Unocoin is to make sure your investment is protected in a way that gives you access whenever you need it while keeping out the eccentricities away from our storage. This is when security comes into the picture. And, at Unocoin we are extremely cautious about how we secure our users’ crypto assets. Most of the crypto assets on Unocoin are stored offline. The set of multiple addresses for offline storage are generated on a computer that has never been (and never will be) connected to the internet.
The first step towards ensuring your security with us — AML and KYC
To completely secure you we need to know you completely. Hence, help us know you. And you can do that by adhering to our KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML(Anti-Money Laundering) policy.
Unocoin is India’s leading crypto assets company that never compromises with the KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML(Anti-Money Laundering) policy. Our policy has always been very clear and strict with KYC’s.
Being a self-regulated company we follow certain customer identification procedures for opening accounts and monitoring transactions. We are committed to ensuring that our website or services are not used to facilitate money laundering or the funding of terrorism or any other criminal activities.
As a part of the identification procedure, we need to obtain certain customer identification documents which include a copy of the PAN card, Aadhaar Card, bank details and Phone number, email id and Passport size photo from every customer. This process makes us aware of whom we are receiving money from and to whom we are sending money. This process helps us to take necessary precautions against any illicit purposes.
To ensure this objective is fulfilled, we have designed our KYC and AML information acquiring system which will help us to safeguard our customer’s information and ensure a clean barter system between the two parties.
Revamping and reassuring
We are here to innovate, moreover, grow and come out as the strongest, most robust and highly trustworthy crypto trading platform. We, hence, also cater to the general and security concerns that we encounter time and again.
Although it is difficult for our users to verify certain claims, Unocoin does not (cannot) declare the individual user accounts without sacrificing privacy. We conduct periodic audits of our platform by internationally recognized security firms, and our company auditor performs the periodic auditing of digital asset balances. We also have always been willing to undergo an external audit by a reputed auditing firm like one of the Big fours if needed (even if it is initiated by one of our users).
2. Our support
We are in full support of the proof of keys movement and believe that every user has the right to know the status of their funds. As the technology evolves over time and if there emerges a method to prove the holding claims in a way that won’t sacrifice the security and privacy of involved stakeholders, we are compliant to employ the same.
Our recommendations for users
