One thought on “IdentityMind Global Add 25th Bitcoin Client

  1. This is a nice and clean option for bitcoin businesses… except that it encourages not thinking but simply complying with whatever the latest regulations are, and moreover, as a US company, they're nice and convenient centralised way for the us government to get their hands on personal details of bitcoin users the world over. In that sense, this is instant anti-innovation sauce for your bitcoin business. But hey, KYC is a solved problem, right?

    Also: Mind the apostrophes.
