CLEARS (CLRS) ICO Review – ICO Token News


KYC—or Know Your Customer—is a critical process for all financial companies dealing with international investors, shareholders and customers. Clears is a technology based on the Ethereum blockchain offering a scalable and personalized KYC process. It aims to expedite the acquisition and delivery of required information to companies and regulators around the world, simultaneously improving the user experience by increasing security of sensitive personal data while lowering the cost.

Today, most companies use proprietary and standardized KYC processes, requesting every new customer to submit an ID and a document certifying their current address. Only after a successful customer authentication has occurred are companies allowed to do business with a user

Clears Connect Product Solution

Clears can be seen as an escrow for personal data based on the blockchain. Clears will use top-tier processes for identity verification and background checks. It will leverage the power of a decentralized blockchain to simplify and reduce the cost of a traditional KYC process. For every new user signing up to Clears, Clears creates a unique, unalterable blockchain ID, known as a Clears ID. This ID will be used to identify each user during all KYC processes they will ever be required to complete. Using private and highly-secure databases, including Anti Money Laundering – AML databases, Clears will then perform a complete background check for every new user. Registrations and KYCs are always free for the user.

Clears will then be able to provide the following for every user:

  • A thorough identity check and proof that the KYC has been completed, with Clears acting as a third party
  • The ability for any company doing a KYC to validate their data by comparing it with the certified data only available through Clears
  • A complete data hash, hosted inside the Ethereum blockchain, complete with a timestamp

The Clears ID will never change for a given user; its integrity is guaranteed by the Ethereum blockchain, one of the most secure blockchains in existence. When a user is asked to complete a new KYC via Clears on a given application, by providing their email or Clears ID, Clears will complete an identification check by asking random questions regarding the user and upon satisfaction will immediately certify that the KYC has been completed. An additional transaction, called KYC hash is stored inside the blockchain to confirm the completion of a KYC between a company and a user.

Clears Wallet Certification

Verifying the ownership and the integrity of a wallet can be a critical for ICO websites that wish to prescreen potential token holders to ensure they have active wallets. Clears will have an optional flow that will allow a user verify the ownership of an ERC20 compatible wallet during the KYC Process.

Clears will initiate the procedure by sending a small amount of CLRS ICO tokens and ETH coins. Using his/her private key the user must send back the same amount of CLRS tokens to a wallet generated by Clears. The user will pay the transaction fee using the ETH sent by Clears during the initial transaction.

KYC Data Cross-Matching

KYC Data Cross-Matching The Clears goal is to provide a complete decentralized KYC solution, where companies can rely on Clears for the complete KYC process. When a KYC is audited or the authorities need additional information, companies can direct request to Clears. In some instances such as common first and last names, it may be necessary for the company to maintain a record of the KYC, in addition to the KYC Hash provided by Clears, in order to properly identify an individual.

These records can consist of users first and last name and the US or Canadian social security number to prove that the user is the same person as validated by the documented KYC. To do so, Clears will create a collection of REST APIs to cross-match data. It is important to note that Clears will never share, sell or send any data but will only provide a technical solution to verify the data entered by a specific user against the data collected and verified during the KYC process.

CLRS Token Value Proposition

CLRS token is an ERC20 token relies on the Ethereum blockchain. Companies wishing to use the Clears KYC technology will be required to pay for services using the CLRS token.

The following services will be paid for by the company requesting the KYC:

  • Completed KYCs
  • The physical validation of a document, via a Clears network certification professional
  • Additional services

Companies that are not holding CLRS tokens but that wish to use Clears services will be able to buy tokens on the Clears website, using fiat currency. Clears will introduce a buy back program to create more token velocity and liquidity. This will allow companies to simply buy Clears tokens on the Clears website.
