3 min readMar 9, 2022

As you are all aware, to be fully compliant, paragen must enable kyc for participation in crowdfunding. However paragen does not store your data, we have partnered with Fractal protocol, the third party organisation used to check kyc as well as integrate its technology into our launchpad.

On-Chain Secure KYC Process:

A pre-requisite to participate is that you must KYC only ONCE for your wallet to be accepted. This is to ensure compliance, however, note that we ensure FULL security of your information by storing it On-chain with Fractal. This is also to minimise dual entries from multiple wallets owned by the same user. Fractal is the service provider 3rd party utilised by Paragen.
