MEW Integrates with Bity for Crypto-to-Fiat without KYC

MEW Integrates with Bity for Crypto-to-Fiat without KYC

Users of newly redesigned MEW V5 can now swap bitcoin or ethereum to Swiss francs or euro, direct from the wallet, through crypto finance platform Bity. The maximum amount for crypto-to-fiat exchange is 5,000 Swiss francs (CHF), approximately $5,000. Know-your-customer verification is not required

Generally, users are obligated to submit their documents to satisfy KYC and AML requirements. In an effort to simplify the process, software wallet provider My Ether Wallet (MEW) integrates with Bity to provide users with a KYC-less crypto-to-fiat ‘exit.’

For compliance purposes, users using the MEW-Bity integration are required to submit personal information:

  • Phone number (for verification)
  • Bank details (IBAN number, BIC/SWIFT code, and ABA number)
  • Bank account official name
  • Billing address

MEW believes that digital coins can be used in all forms of everyday financial transactions, ‘from paying for the proverbial coffee to buying a home,’ according to their blog post announcement. But before that mainstream adoption, market stability, and better scaling must occur.

Bity: Frictionless, Safe, and Regulated

Bity was founded in 2014 by Alexis Roussel, Romain Braud, Yves Honoré and Gian Bochlser. It is a regulated and audited Swiss-based brokerage that streamlines the method of exchanging cryptocurrencies to regular money. It has a network of crypto ATMs in five cities across Switzerland.

Regulatory-wise, Bity complies with the Swiss Anti Money Laundering Ordinance guidelines. The platform is equipped with technology that aids in verifying proof of wallet-ownership.

Ethereum Update: Amazon Purchases in The Radar, +60% Growth this Month, ETH 2.0 by Early 2020s

Ethereum is having a very positive week, not only in terms of prices but also in terms of usability and technological evolution. Ether (ETH) Loogking Good On Charts Ether (ETH) —the blockchain’s native cryptocurrency— is having a phenomenal performance so far in June. An increase of 63% following the trend established by Bitcoin (BTC) has caused the token to reach 270$. Courtesy: Coinlib The token’s behavior follows the bullish trend that began last May after a correction experienced at the beginnings of June due to the sharp fall of Bitcoin (BTC) prices attributed by several analysts to a practice of price manipulation. However, after approaching $226, ETH managed to recover, starting again a strong escalation replicated by other cryptocurrencies. The Heikin Ashi candles allow reducing the “noise” in the graphs, showing a clear bullish trend after having reached the minimums of the month. This trend is confirmed by nice MACD that shows a possible end of the correction and an optimistic future for the Ethereum Market. Ethereum 2.0 to be Launched on the 3rd of January 2020 According to information by Trust Nodes, the Ethereum development team has already set a date for the release of the long-awaited Ethereum 2.0: January 3, 2020. Vitalik Buterin Speaking about Ethereum 2.0 at San Francisco Justin Drake –one of the developers– said they chose that date for several reasons, one of which was that they wanted to honor the launch of the Bitcoin (BTC) genesis block on January 3, 2009. The evolution of Ethereum has several characteristics, however the most important is the migration from a PoW algorithm to a brand new Proof of Stake alg. With this, the blockchain would be more effective, resource efficient and more resistant to possible 51% attacks — at least theoretically. The “transition” process could start between October 8th and 11th of this year at Devcon, although there are already some Ethereum 2.0 clients running testnet. As reported by Crypto Crimson, it is expected that once implemented -and with all parallel developments fully operational- Ethereum will be able to support about 1 million transactions per second. Using Ethereum (ETH) for Amazon Purchases Will be Possible Thanks to a Partnership Between CLIC Technology and Opporty An official press release shared by CLIC Technology revealed that they partnered with Opporty to work on the development of a browser extension “which will revolutionize the e-commerce industry, allowing consumers to make everyday purchases on Amazon using the open source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform Ethereum.

As reported by Ethereum World News; last month, the tech startup Moon announced the development of an extension that allows payments on Amazon with Bitcoin (BTC) through Lightning Network.
