The day has finally arrived! Payments for the Kriptomat UAB Security Token Offering are open to the public, which means that you can now make your investment!
We have prepared a complete guide on how to buy the Kriptomat securities in three simple steps.
STEP I: Register for Security Token Offering by passing KYC
Begin your registration process on the chosen token offering registration page. The first step you need to take is to create your account. If you have already registered, log in with your email and password and skip to STEP 2.
STAY SAFE: Create a strong password that you don’t use anywhere else and don’t disclose your password to anyone! Our team members will never ask you for your password or offer you tokens at a discounted rate. Please report to [email protected] if you receive any offers of this nature.
After creating your account, we will ask you to answer a few mandatory questions we are required to ask by the regulator.
Identity Verification Process
Identify yourself by following the instructions on the screen. Make sure you are in a well-lit room or any other place with plenty of light. The image quality is crucial for the success of the KYC procedure. As practice shows, 99 percent of KYC procedures fail due to poor face and/or document image quality.
You will see a display of your face on the screen. The system will prompt you to take three photos:
- Your face;
- The front side of your document,
- The back side of your document.
PS: If you choose to use your Passport, you will also be asked to take a picture of the cover of the passport.
- Center your face to fit in the circle. Put your face very close to the camera of your device and press the CAPTURE button. After your face is identified, you will be asked to present your documents. Choose if you want to use your ID Card or Passport.
- Please show the front of your ID card and place it in the frame on the left. The document should be clearly visible, not blurry or pixelated. Press start.
- Please show the back of your ID card and place it in the frame on the left. Make sure that MRZ zone is visible and the document is not blurry or pixelated.
STEP II: Pass the MiFID questionnaire
Each investor will need to go through a short appropriateness test under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). This is a legal requirement in order to acquire regulated security.
Keep in mind that there are no right or wrong answers! The said questionnaire is three pages long. Each page will take around 1–2 minutes to finish. There will be no input, only drop-down answers.
