This week in our newsletter we have a couple of things to share with you. First up we have our latest blog post, which this time focuses on Proof of Address: what is it, why is it necessary, and what are its benefits and drawbacks? Going back in time a bit, we also bring up a previous article where Blockpass worked in conjunction with one of its partners to discuss some of the developments at the time, and wonder how things have changed in the year since. Following this, our Current Offers section features an all-new partner in tax-specialist Easy Crypto Accounting. Finally, we feature a new 5 Minutes With interview where we talk to Mobile Developer Khanh Duong about his work for Blockpass. Have a great week and stay healthy!
Providing Proof of Address
There are a number of different data fields that are often required for regulations combating the spread of fraud. KYC and AML measures always require names, dates of birth and other areas, but address is not always one of the requirements. Despite this, it is often asked for as it has historically been used to strengthen the process. In our latest blog post, we examine Proof of Address, its benefits and drawbacks.
There are a number of issues raised when requiring a proof of address to be provided, not least for those with no fixed abode; however, whilst PoA is required by some companies, Blockpass will make it as seamless and painless as possible. Having a shared and reusable platform for identity management and verification is a significant part of this, but not the whole story. Click here

Discussions on Digital Assets
About a year ago, we were lucky enough to have the combined talents of Blockpass' CEO, Adam Vaziri, and Paul Li, General Counsel of OAX Foundation, working together on an article about the then-new Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidelines for digital assets and digital asset service providers, as well as the G20 summit that was happening at the time.
A look back at the article we can see how things have developed since then and how much of what Vaziri and Li said remains relevant today. Click here
to read their thoughts and findings and let us know via email or through social media what you think of their work and if any parallels can be drawn to how things stand now.
