KYC verification

Note: This step is technically optional because it is not required to enable transfers from Coin Hunt World into Uphold. However, you will need to complete KYC verification if you ever want to transfer cryptocurrency or fiat out of Uphold into another wallet or bank account.

KYC stands for know-your-customer and is required to avoid certain nefarious things (such as money laundering). It involves providing Uphold with valid identification and some personal information. Coin Hunt World does not have access to anything you submit to Uphold through the KYC process.
