When a user makes an aggregate lifetime total of deposits exceeding EUR 2000 or requests a withdrawal of any amount inside the http://mcwexchange.com Platform, then it is compulsory for them to perform a full KYC process.
During this process, the user will have to input some basic details about themselves and then upload:
- A copy of Government Issued Photo ID (in some cases front and back depending on the doc).
- A selfie of themselves holding the ID doc.
- A bank statement/Utility Bill.
Once uploaded, the user will get a “Temporarily Approved” Status and the documents will now be on our side, and the “KYC Team” will have 24hrs to go over them and email the user about the outcome:
- More information needed – No change in Status
When the user is on “Temporarily Approved” Status then:
- They can use the platform normally.
- They cannot deposit more than EUR 500 in aggregate total.
- They cannot complete any withdrawal.

Notes on the “KYC Process”

- Once all proper documents are in our possession then the account gets approved.
“Other AMLA measures”
- If a user has not passed full KYC then they cannot make additional deposits or withdrawals of any amount.
- If a user has passed the KYC process successfully then
- There is a deposit limit per transaction (max EUR 2,000)
- Prior to any withdrawal there is a detailed algorithmic and manual check on the activity and balance of the user to see if the amount withdrawn is a result of proper activity in the platform.
- Under no circumstances may a user transfer funds directly to another user.
