Holdex Distributing Blockpass Airdrops

It's been more than two years since we began our partnership with Holdex and it has provided great opportunities for KYC applications and investment. In our most recent press release, we have now revealed that Holdex is going to be facilitating our new community airdrop.


Blockpass' proprietary token, PASS, is a KYC token which has a number of possible uses. This community airdrop is the latest way in which we are sharing PASS with our users; previously we have given out PASS through methods such as our quiz.

Politically Exposed Persons and You

There are many aspects to KYC and AML compliance which, unless you are involved in the process, may not be well known or obvious. As part of our work at Blockpass we aim to shed some light on these different areas and terms so users that are interested can find out more about the area we work in. One of our latest articles focuses on Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), explaining what this term means and the requirements it brings.


The designation and handling of PEPs is an important stage in compliance due to the heightened potential risk of involvement in various illicit activities and the significant possible impact it would have because of their work or connections. Click here to find out about PEPs, the requirements for conducting business with them and how we can help.



Combating Money Laundering

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements represent a significant part of compliance for financial institutions and, along with KYC, determines both what companies need to watch out for, as well as how they should prepare to avoid facilitating it.


In our latest article, we take a look at the three stages of money laundering, along with five ways in which it can be thwarted. Click here to read about the money laundering process and different methods that can be implemented to improve its detection.
