emBlock: KYC on a Hyperledger Fabric

Financial institutions spend an average of $60 million per year on KYC compliance!
Know your customer (KYC), while very useful for preventing and tracking crime, can also be a major burden for financial institutions and large customer-facing enterprises. The reason is because complying with KYC regulations is time consuming and expensive. More importantly, there’s a bit of risk and a lot of money involved in an ineffective and manual KYC process.

Here’s a few things you should know about manual KYC process:

  • Potential for forgery and fraud
  • Huge administrative and cost overheads
  • Multiple agencies storing KYC data individually
