What is Argos.ID?
Argos.ID is a service that's helping make unhosted wallets KYC compliant.
It simplifies the use of KYC documentation for both user and business, massively reducing the time it takes to upload and organise the necessary documents for KYC.
What problem does Argos.id solve?
When first getting into crypto and blockchain dapps, I remember sitting with my driving licence out on my desk.
Because every new dApp I signed into needed to perform some level of Know your customer (KYC).
I'd have to upload my personal details, a selfie, and a photo ID multiple times per day.
Often, I'd then get some form of "we need you to do step X again" message meaning I'd have to waste even more time on KYC.
The best bit? Some of those services still haven't followed up years later.
It's worrying to think my personal details are lost in the ether.
Argos.ID is hoping to make the process of KYC easier and faster for both business and user.
With Argos, a user uploads their KYC data once.
They can then use it to link to various platforms that require KYC for approval and use.
The result should be a huge saving in time for the user and more uniform KYC documents from users for the brand.
The best bit is how you can later delete your information from Argos if you decide you no longer want to use the service.
