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.

33 Cent Ethereum and $100 EOS, What’s Going On At One Crypto Exchange?

The crypto market is highly volatile and assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and EOS experience wild price swings. On cryptocurrency margin trading exchanges, these wild price swings are further amplified by traders trading on up to 100x leverage. Last night on one crypto margin trading platform, some strange behavior occurred that caused flash crashes and flash pumps across a variety of the crypto assets available for trading on the platform. Flash Crashes and Pumps Galore at BitMax Overnight, BitMax traders were able to load up on Ethereum at a low of 33 cents. EOS, spiked to over $100, and some lucky crypto investors were able to scoop up Bitcoin at a $1 per BTC on the USDC trading pair. Litecoin was yet another asset impacted. To avoid a million retweets, I accumulated all pics into 1 tweet.Looks like @BitMax_Official just became a MAJOR shitshow.$BTC, $ETH, $EOS & $LTC are all exhibiting flash crash/pumps.Anyone on margin using them, are just absolutely #REKT.— < Use this — wolf || 33k-followers-by-december-moku (@ImNotTheWolf) August 23, 2019 While these lucky users felt like they had hit the crypto version of a jackpot, traders on the other side of the trade had sold a $10,000 asset at just a buck. Many members of the greater community that learned of the news were quick to point out that any traders using margin were completely “rekt” as a result. Some believe that the situation is a very real risk when trading using leverage, and those affected got what they deserved. But clearly this isn’t the norm for any cryptocurrency exchange or platform, nor are traders deserving of losses at no fault of their own. Leverage, as defined by Investopedia, as using “borrowed money” to “increase the potential return of an investment.” Margin trading platforms are very attractive to crypto traders. Using leverage crypto traders can amplify their profits – but also losses – by up to 100 times. Combining this with the 20% or more price swings that crypto-assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and EOS often exhibit, can both be a recipe for disaster and incredible wealth. Risk management is critical to success, but when platforms flash crash or platform instability, there’s sometimes little traders can do to avoid getting “rekt.” Cloudflare and Amazon Web Services to Blame for Widespread Crypto Issues It wasn’t just BitMax that experienced issues last night, although no other platforms suffered the same flash crash and mega pump behavior. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao tweeted about the issues his firm was experiencing due to AWS suffering outages. AWS is having an issue, mostly with caching services, affecting some users globally. We are working with them and monitoring the situation closely. — CZ Binance (@cz_binance) August 23, 2019 The issue stems from an outage in Amazon Web Services cloud solutions. Amazon regularly provides cloud solutions such as DNS hosting and more for a variety of websites and companies related to crypto.

In this situation, Coinbase, CoinMarketCap, and more went down due to an outage at the third-party provider. It’s the service providers that are at fault, but how trading platforms responds and protect users separates the best exchanges from the bottom of the barrel. 33 Cent Ethereum and $100 EOS, What’s Going On At One Crypto Exchange? was last modified: August 23rd, 2019 by Tony SpilotroThe post 33 Cent Ethereum and $100 EOS, What’s Going On At One Crypto Exchange? appeared first on NewsBTC.
