As regulations are constantly changing, cryptocurrency companies are required to follow so-called financial security measures and investigate the source of funds. 

In the case of exchanges through bank transfers, we can ask for statements about the legality of the origin of the funds (along with relevant documents).

This is the so-called Proof of Funds process – in accordance with relevant AML and counter-terrorist financing regulations.

Details and instructions for completing the statement will be sent in an email to the address associated with your Kanga account.
