This document discusses the KYC processes supported by Taler.
Taler needs to run KYC checks in the following circumstances:
The new taler-kyc-ledger component keeps track of a mapping between an identifier (as a payto URI?) and a KYC status (yes-merchant, yes-customer, no, progress (with resume link)). Different identifiers might be mapped by the bank’s KYC provider to the same legal user entity.
What info do we look at to determine if threshold is crossed / being crossed?
[ … ]
FIXME: Who keeps track of the threshold? * since the kyc-ledger might be run by the bank and
not the exchange, the thresholds could/should be kept by the exchange
None unless we want regulatory compliance?
(This should be filled in with results from discussions on mailing lists / personal communication.)
