Webinar, 17th of March: The AML/CFT Solution Of The Future Is Already A Reality

01 March 2022

GACO is very happy to have engaged Pawel Kuskowski, founder and CEO of Gatenox, for this very interesting webinar. (Click here to book).

Current KYC/AML processes are far from being optimal. They’re costly and ineffective. With the solutions of the future, customers will onboard once and use their data on multiple occasions—which will ultimately lower the costs to almost zero per user. And while the cost argument is a significant selling point, the new solution seeks to focus just as strongly on conversion and data ownership. “We see customers dropping out of the process quite often. In most cases, it’s a cumbersome, boring sequence of steps that one has to execute on any given occasion. With this new, we aim to significantly increase the conversion rate and provide customers with an incredible experience”, says Pawel Kuskowski, founder and CEO of Gatenox. “We want to build a platform with instant, frictionless onboarding, and propose it as a better solution to over 24’000 regulated crypto and other financial companies and their users.”

This new solution is a new-generation decentralized identity wallet that allows exchanges, applications, Web 3.0 services, as well as fintechs and banks to integrate a seamless, near-zero cost, instant Know-Your-Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), and Customer Due Diligence (CDD) processes. Just as importantly, users who do decide to share their data with a third party through Gatenox will be able to profit from this activity.

Compliance and Privacy to Go Hand-in-Hand

“We all know how powerful smartphones are nowadays. In addition to certain features such as reading biometric documents with NFC or geolocation, we feel that not enough is being done in the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) space”, Wojciech Zatorski (Gatenox) explains. “The solution, proposed by the European Union, will make one-time passwords non-compliant when logging into a variety of financial services platforms—in favor of biometrics.”

The goal of PSD2 is to increase the security of any digital transaction, and, therefore, decrease the amount of fraud. The challenge, however, will also lie in ensuring the highest possible privacy standards whenever biometric solutions are concerned. Aleph Zero’s MPC-based privacy technology, Liminal, will allow all users of Gatenox to prove that relevant information is correct without revealing the contents of that information, as well as ultimately provide the security that’s on par with hardware wallets.

In addition, the data will be owned—at all times—by individuals themselves. They choose if, how, and when to share their data—directly with the businesses, without any third parties involved.
