5. Application of due diligence measures
5.1 The Provider of service shall determine and take due diligence (hereinafter DD)
measures using results of conducted risk assessment (see Section 11), and provisions of
national risk assessment, published on official channels of the European Banking
Authority, Europol and according to the 4 TH AML Directive.
The Representatives shall pay special attention to the activities of Clients participating in a
Transaction and to circumstances that refer to Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing,
including to complex, high-value or unusual Transactions which do not have any reasonable
economic purpose.
Depending on the level of the risk of the Client and/or Transaction and depending on the fact
whether the Business Relationship is an existing one or it is about to be established, the
Provider of service shall apply either normal DD measures (see Section 6), simplified DD
measures (see Section 9) or enhanced DD measures (see Section 10). The Provider of service
shall also apply continuous DD measures to ensure ongoing monitoring of Business
Relationships (see Sections 5.7-5.10).
DD measures shall include the following procedures:
Identifying the Client and verifying its identity using reliable, independent sources, documents
or data, including e-identifying;
Identifying and verifying of the representative of the Client and the right of representation;
Identifying the Client's Beneficial Owner;
Assessing and, as appropriate, obtaining information on the purpose of the Business
Relationship and the Transaction;
Conducting ongoing DD on the Client's business to ensure the Transactions being carried out
are consistent with the Provider of service’s knowledge of the Client and its source of funds;

Obtaining information whether the Client is a PEP or PEP’s family member or PEP’s close
associate.
The Provider of service shall establish the source of wealth of the Client, where appropriate.
To comply with the DD obligation, the Representatives shall have the right and obligation to:
request appropriate identity documents to identify the Client and its representatives;
request documents and information regarding the activities of the Client and legal origin of
funds;
request information about Beneficial Owners of a legal person;
screen the risk profile of the Client/Transaction, select the appropriate DD measures, assess the
risk whether the Client or another person linked with the Transaction is or may become involved
in Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing;
re-identify the Client or the representative of the Client, if there are any doubts regarding the
correctness of the information received in the course of initial identification;
refuse to participate in or carry out the Transaction if there is any suspicion that the Transaction
is linked with Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing, or that the Client or another person
linked with the Transaction is or could be involved in Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing.
The objective of the continuously applied DD measures is to ensure on-going monitoring of
Clients and Transactions. Conducting ongoing monitoring of the Business Relationship includes:
scrutiny of Transactions being carried out to ensure that the Transactions being conducted are
consistent with the Provider of service's knowledge of the Client, the business and risk profile of
the Client;
Obtaining information on source of funds for Transactions;
Keeping up-to-date the documents, data or information, obtained during taking DD measures;
Paying particular attention to Transactions and Client’s conduction, leading to criminal activity
or Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing, and clarifying nature, reasons and background of
Transactions;
Paying particular attention to the Business Relationship or Transactions, if the Client is from or
the seat of a Client being a legal person is located in a third country, which is included in the list
of risk countries (see Exhibit 1).
Annual review of a Client being a legal entity is carried out regularly once a year. Updated data
shall be recorded in the Provider of service’s Client database.
The Representative updates the data of a Client, who is either a legal person or a natural
person, i.e. takes appropriate DD measures every time when:
the Client addresses the Provider of service with the request to amend a long-term contract
during the term of its validity;
upon identification and verification of the information there is reason to suspect that the
documents or data gathered earlier are insufficient, have changed or are incorrect. In this case,
the Representative may conduct a face-to-face meeting with the Client;
the data pertaining to the Transactions of Client reveal significant changes in the Client’s area of
activity or business volumes, which warrants amending the Client’s risk profile;
the Provider of service has learned through third persons or the media that the activities or data
of the Client have changed significantly.

The Representative shall evaluate the substance and the purpose of the Client’s activities, in
order to establish the possible links of the respective Transaction with Money Laundering or
Terrorist Financing. The evaluation should result in an understanding about the purpose of the
Business Relationship for the Client, the nature of the Client’s business, the risk levels of the
Client and, if necessary, the sources of funds related to Transactions.

Normal due diligence measures
The Provider of service shall conduct normal DD in the following cases:
Upon establishing a new Business Relationship;
If during one year the value of a single Transaction exceeds EUR 15 000, regardless of whether
the financial obligation is performed in one payment or in a series of related payments;
In the event of insufficiency or suspected incorrectness of the documents or information
gathered previously in the course of carrying out DD measures;
Upon suspicion of Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing.
In the course of conducting normal DD measures, the Representative shall apply the measures
of DD as provided for in section 5.4.
No new Business Relationship can be formed or Transaction executed, if the Client, in spite of
the respective request, has failed to present documents and appropriate information required to
conduct DD, or if based on the presented documents, the Representative suspects Money
Laundering or Terrorist Financing.
If in spite of the respective request an existing Client has failed to present during the contract
period documents and appropriate information required to conduct DD, such behaviour
constitutes material breach of contract that shall be reported by the Representative to the CO,
and in such case the contract(s) concluded with the Client shall be cancelled and the Business
Relationship shall be terminated as soon as feasible 1 .
The Provider of service shall not enter into Business Relationships with anonymous Clients.

Identification of a person
Upon implementing DD measures the following person shall be identified:
Client – a natural or legal person;
Representative of the Client – an individual who is authorized to act on behalf of the Client;
Beneficial Owner of the Client;
PEP – if the PEP is the Client or a person connected with the Client (see Section 2.10).
Upon establishing the relationship with the Client and when carrying out a Transaction, the
Provider of service shall identify and verify the Client while being present at the same place as
the Client or by using information technology means.

1 The termination of the long-term contract or contract without the term must foresee the Provider of service’s right to
terminate the contract extraordinarily without observing the period of pre-notice in case the Client does not provide
requested identification or verification documents (in due time)

For identification of a Client and verification of the identity of a Client by using information
technology means, the Provider of service shall use:
a document issued by a Member State of the EU for the purpose of digital identification;
another electronic identification system within the meaning of the REGULATION (EU) 910/2014 2 .
If the Client is a foreign national, the identity document issued by the competent authority of
the foreign country is also used simultaneously.
In case of identification of a Client and verification of the identity of a Client by using
information technology means the Provider of service shall additionally obtain data from a
reliable and independent source, e.g. identity documents databases.
Identification of a Client being a natural person and a representative of a Client who is a legal
person
Upon establishing a Business Relationship, identification takes place, above all, during a face-to-
face meeting or by using information technology means.
Identity of a Client being a natural person, or a representative of a Client who is a legal person
must be established each time when a Transaction is carried out.
The Rules must be considered when dealing with the documents that can be used to identify the
Client or its representative and the requirements established for them (see Section 7.10). If it is
not possible to obtain original documents for identification of a Client, request documents
certified or authenticated by a notary public or authenticated officially for verification of the
identity of the natural person, or use data obtained from other reliable and independent sources
(including electronical identification) on condition that information is obtained from at least two
different sources.
Verification must be made whether or not such person is a PEP (see Section 7.9).
A new Client and, if necessary, an existing Client shall confirm the correctness of the submitted
information and data by signing the Client data registration sheet (see Form 1).
Identification of a Client being a legal person
To identify a Client who is a legal person, the Representative shall take the following actions:
Check the information concerning a legal person by accessing the relevant electronic databases
(dependent by Member State of operation);
If it is not possible to obtain an original extract from the register or the respective data, request
documents (extract from the relevant registry, certificate of registration or equivalent
document) certified or authenticated by a notary public or authenticated officially for verification
of the identity of the legal person, or use data obtained from other reliable and independent
sources (including electronical identification) on condition that information is obtained from at
least two different sources;
Ask the representative of a foreign legal person to present an identity documents and a
document evidencing of his/her power of attorney, which has been notarised or authenticated
pursuant to an equal procedure and legalised or authenticated by a certificate substituting for
legalisation (apostille), unless otherwise prescribed by an international agreement;
On the basis of the information received from the representative of the foreign legal person,
control whether or not the legal person could be linked with a PEP (see Section 7.9);

2 Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic
identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive
1999/93/EC. Found at: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-
content/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv%3AOJ.L_.2014.257.01.0073.01.ENG

If the seat of a Client being a legal person is located in a third country, which is included in the
list of risk countries (see Exhibit 1), report this to the CO, who shall decide the additional
measures to be applied to identifying and background checking of the person.
The document presented for identification of a legal person shall set out at least the following:
business name, registry code (number), date of registration, seat and address;
names and authorisations of members of the Management Board or the head of branch or the
other relevant body.
A legal representative of a new Client (subsequently as required) shall confirm the correctness
of the submitted information and data by signing the Client data registration sheet (see Form
1).
Consequences of insufficient identification of a Client
Should the Representative establish that the identification of a Client is insufficient the
Representative shall:
Promptly apply the enhanced DD measures pursuant to the Rules;
Notify the CO of the failure to implement normal DD in a timely manner;
Assess the risk profile of the Client, postpone the suspicious Transaction and notify CO and/or
MB for the purposes of the provisions in Section 13.3.
Identification of the Beneficial Owner of the Client
Registration and assessment of the Beneficial Owner(s) of a legal person is mandatory.
There is no need to identify the Beneficial Owners of a Client/company whose securities have
been accepted for trading on a regulated securities market.
In order to establish the Beneficial Owner, the Representative shall take the following actions:
Gather information about the ownership and control structure of the Client on the basis of
information provided in pre-contractual negotiations or obtained from another reliable and
independent source;
In situations, where no single person holds the interest or ascertained level of control to the
extent of no less than 25 per cent (see Section 2.9), apply the principle of proportionality to
establishing the circle of beneficiaries, which means asking information about persons, who
control the operations of the legal person, or otherwise exercise dominant influence over the
same;
If the documents used to identify a legal person, or other submitted documents do not clearly
identify the Beneficial Owners, record the respective information (i.e. whether the legal person
is a part of a group, and the identifiable ownership and management structure of the group) on
the basis of the statements made by the representative of the legal person, or a written
document under the hand of the representative;
To verify the presented information, make enquiries to the respective registers, and request an
annual report or another appropriate document to be presented.
If no natural person is identifiable who ultimately owns or exerts control over a Client and all
other means of identification are exhausted, the senior managing official(s) might be considered
to be the Beneficial Owner(s).
Pay attention to companies established in low tax rate regions (see Exhibit 1).
While establishing the Beneficial Owner, it is possible to rely on information received in a format
reproducible in writing from a credit institution registered in a commercial registry of a Member
State of the EU or from the branch of a foreign credit institution, or from a credit institution that

has been registered or whose place of business is in a contracting state of the European
Economic Area or an Equivalent Third Country (see Exhibit 1).
Identification of Politically Exposed Person
The Representative shall implement the following measures to establish whether or not a
person is a PEP:
asking the Client to provide necessary information;
making an enquiry or checking the data on websites of the respective supervisory authorities or
institutions of the country of location of the Client.
The matter of whether to establish a Business Relationships with a PEP, or a person associated
with him or her, and the DD measures applied to such person shall be decided by the MB.
If a Business Relationship has been established with a Client, and the Client or its Beneficial
Owner subsequently turns out to be or becomes a PEP, CO and MB shall be notified of that.
In order to establish a Business Relationship with a PEP or a company connected with that
person, it is necessary to:
take enhanced DD measures (see Section 10);
establish the source of wealth of this person and the origin of the money or other property used
in the Transaction;
monitor the Business Relationship on a continual basis, and carry out enhanced control over the
Transaction.
DD measures, mentioned in Section 7.9.4 might be not applicable regarding local PEPs, if there
are no relevant circumstances, leading to the higher risks.
Respective remark must be made in the Provider of service’s database of Clients on documents
of such person in the form of notation “Politically Exposed Person”.
Documents that can be used for identification
In case of Clients being natural persons and the representatives of Clients, the following
documents can be used for identification:
Personal ID card (whether ID card, e-resident card or residence permit card);
Passport or diplomatic passport;
Travel document issued in a foreign country;
Driving licence (if it has name, facial image, signature and personal code or date of birth of
holder on it).
The Representative shall make a copy of the page of identity document which contains personal
data and photo.
In addition to an identity document, the representative of a Client shall submit a document in
the required format certifying the right of representation.
Legal person and its passive legal capacity shall be identified and verified on the basis of the
following documents:
in case of legal persons registered in and/or branches of foreign companies registered in the EU,
the identification shall be conducted on the basis of an extract of a registry card of commercial
register in respective Member State;

foreign legal persons shall be identified on the basis of an extract of the relevant register or a
transcript of the registration certificate or an equal document, which has been issued by
competent authority or body not earlier that six months before submission thereof.
If no original documents are used for identification, the Representative shall control and verify
data by using at least two reliable and independent sources.
If the Client is a natural person, the following data shall be recorded:
Name of the Client;
Personal identification code (in case of absence the date and place of birth and place of
residence);
Information regarding identification and verification of the right of representation. If the right of
representation does not arise from law, name of the document used for establishing and
verification of the right of representation, the date of issue and the name or name of the issuing
party.
If the Client is a legal person, the following data shall be recorded:
Name of the Client;
Registry code (or registration number and registration date) of the Client;
Names and authorisations of members of the Management Board or the head of branch or the
other relevant body;
Telecommunications numbers.

Establishing the purpose and actual substance of a Transaction
For the purpose of preventing movement of illegally obtained funds through the Provider of
service it is essential upon entering into a Business Relationship, in addition to identification of
the Client, to establish the business profile of the Client, which consists of mapping the main
areas of operation and possible payment practices. Notice is to be taken on persons that the
Client has transactional relationships with, and their location.
It is necessary to bear in mind that certain circumstances, which are suspicious or unusual for
one Client, could constitute a part of normal economic activities of another. Establishing the
area of activity, work or profession of a Client allows assessing whether or not the Business
Relationship or the Transactions are in conformity with the Client’s normal participation in
commerce, and whether the Business Relationship or the Transaction has an understandable
economic reason for the Client.
In order to screen out suspicious or unusual Transactions and the purpose and actual substance
of a Transaction, the Representative shall take the following actions:
if necessary, ask the Client to provide (additional) information about the professional or
economic activities;
if necessary, ask the Client explanations about the reasons for the Transaction and, if
necessary, documents evidencing of the origin of the assets and/or source of wealth;
being particularly attentive to Transactions, which are linked with natural or legal persons,
whose country of origin is a state, wherefrom it is particularly difficult to receive information
about the Client and/or transactions with persons, who originate from such states, which do not
contribute sufficiently into prevention of Money Laundering (see Exhibit 1).

Simplified due diligence measures

Simplified DD measures may be taken, if the Client is:
A company listed on a regulated market that is subject to disclosure requirements consistent
with European Union law; 
a legal person governed by public law founded in a Member State of the EU;
a governmental authority or another authority performing public functions in the EU or a
contracting state of the European Economic Area;
an authority of the European Union;
a credit institution or a financial institution, acting on behalf of itself, located in a contracting
state of the European Economic Area or in a third country (see Exhibit 1), which in the country
of location is subject to equal requirements and the performance of which is subject to state
supervision.
Upon identifying and screening of such Clients, the following circumstances, if present
concurrently, shall be considered criteria pointing to low level of risk:
the Client can be identified on the basis of publicly available information;
the ownership and control structure of the Client is transparent and constant;
the operations of the Client and their accounting or payment policies are transparent;
Client reports to and is controlled by an authority of executive power of a Member State of the
EU or a contracting state of the European Free Trade Area, another agency performing public
duties, or an authority of the European Union.
Simplified DD measures may be taken regarding a Transaction, if all of the following conditions
have been fulfilled:
a contract in written (or in format which can be reproduced in written) or electronic format has
been entered into with a Client for an indefinite or a long-time period;
payments are made through the account of a Client, which has been opened in a credit
institution or a branch of a foreign credit institution registered in an EU commercial register (of
a Member State) or in a credit institution which has been established or has its place of
business in a contracting state of the European Economic Area or in an Equivalent Third Country
(see Exhibit 1);
the annual total value of performance of financial obligations arising from Transactions does not
exceed EUR 15 000;
the benefits derived from the Transaction are not realized as benefits of third person, excluding
the event of the Client’s death.

Enhanced due diligence measures
Enhanced DD measures must be taken in cases where the risk level of the Client or Transaction
is higher (e.g. European Union cross-border Transactions, Transactions where the Client has no
apparent need for it or link with the Transaction etc.).
The Representative shall establish the Client’s risk profile and determine the risk category in
accordance with the Rules (see Section 11). The risk category may be altered during the course
of the Business Relationship, taking into consideration the changes in data gathered. The
Client’s risk profile shall be assessed before each next Transaction exceeding 15 000 euros and
the appropriate DD measures shall be taken.
The Representative, who upon entering into a Business Relationship with a new Client or
carrying out a new Transaction into or from an existing Client, detects that there is at least one

of the following high-risk characteristics present in respect of a Client, shall consult with and
report to the CO, and shall take the DD measures set out in the Rules.
The Representative shall apply enhanced DD measures in the following situations:
when suspicion arises regarding truthfulness of the provided data and/or of authenticity of the
identification documents regarding the Client or its Beneficial Owners;
the Client is a PEP (excluding local PEPs, if there are no relevant circumstances, leading to the
higher risks);
the Client is from or the seat of a Client being a legal person is located in a third country, which
is included in the list of risk countries (see Exhibit 1);
in case of unusually large Transactions and unusual patterns of Transactions, which have no
apparent economic or lawful purpose;
in case of companies that have nominee shareholders or shares in bearer form;
in a situation with higher risk of Money Laundering and terrorists financing as described in
Sections 10.1 and 10.3.
Enhanced DD measures shall include at least one the following measures in addition to normal
DD measures as established in Section 5.4:
Identification and verification of a Client on the basis of additional documents, data or
information, which originates from a reliable and independent source;
Identification and verification of a Client while being present at the same place;
Asking the identification or verification documents to be notarised or officially authenticated;
Obtaining additional information on the purpose and nature of the Business Relationship and
Transactions and verification from a reliable and independent source;
Obtaining additional information on the source of funds of Transactions;
Accepting the first payment relating to a Transaction through an account opened in the name of
Client in a credit institution which has its place of business in a contracting state of the
European Economic Area or in an Equal Third Country;
Reassessment of a risk profile of a Client not later than 6 months after establishment of
Business Relationship.
After taking enhanced DD measures, the MB shall decide whether to establish or continue the
Business Relationship with the Client in respect of whom the enhanced DD measures were
taken.
In case of Transactions of the PEP the Representative shall apply the following DD measures:
Obtain the MB approval for establishing or continuing Business Relationship with such person;
Take adequate measures to establish the source of wealth and source of funds that are involved
in Business Relationship or Transactions;
Conduct enhanced, ongoing monitoring of this Business Relationship.
If a Client who, by the date of entry into a transaction, has not performed any prominent public
functions for at least a year, and such person is deemed to pose no further risk specific to PEP,
this Client is not considered as the PEP, therefore application of enhanced DD measures is not
required.
The Representative may not apply enhanced DD measures stipulated in section 10.7 to local
PEP, if there are no other circumstances leading to the higher risk.

Risk assessment

Identification and management of risks of technology and services
The Provider of service uses safe technological solution for providing services and implements
physical and personal measures to keep safety.

Technological solution: Opensource freeware products (audited by community).
Physical measures: Everything is on cloud (Amazon, Azure services), secure keys are kept by
CTO.
Personal measures: developers are full time employees, NDA signed. Special procedures will be
developed.

The Provider of service uses special technical solutions to keep provided service in safe and
keeps history of transactions.

Special Technical solution: Modular System for isolation purposes. All communication among the
modules are encrypted and keys are kept on separate key management service. Automated
module intrusion detection.

Description of authorisation process and how users accounts are secured (does the Provider of
service offer encryption, multiple key (multi-key), signature protection?). In case of a loss or
theft of private cryptographic keys or user credentials by the Clients, what are the activities for
mitigation of risk.

Standard SSL traffic and session encryption. User level authentication. Two-factor
authentication. Private data encryption by private-public key encryption.
Modular system approach. Enforced 2-factor authentication for users. Data are encrypted, and
keys are kept separate from users and IT system administrators. User keys are stored
encrypted.

In case of hacking of the technological solution, following measures will be taken:

For the solution to be hacked multiple services have to be compromised. Modular approach
requires multi-level hacking stages. Log service is isolated and is crucial part of the system,
which is part of the monitoring online and offline analysis and intrusion detection for fast
reaction. Logs are rotated and backed up on separate encrypted backup module. Firewall
provides load-balancing and DDOS protection.

Limits for holding different types of virtual currency.

There are no limits to amount of virtual currency types.
There are system limits of amount currency user can operate with depending from verification
level and procedure. System holds certain part of the capital in hot wallets, everything else is
stored on remote/cold wallet.

Describe how is safety secured in the Provider of service, for example, who is personally
responsible for this field, who monitors, identifies and reports to the MB.

Service provider will be responsible for creating secure solution. Support team of service
provider will monitor, identifies threats and report to the MB.

As a rule, the Provider of service systematically analyses whether adoption of additional security
measures is required.
