Why do I have to verify my identity when buying crypto?

When buying crypto, financial institutions are required to collect user information to comply with US and global financial regulations.


This includes anti-money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) practices.


When buying crypto with Uniswap, Uniswap Labs does not collect or store personal data, such as first name, last name, street address, date of birth, email address, or IP address.
