How To Signup And Complete KYC On Tap

Welcome to the seamless world of Tap Global. We’ve created the Tap app to be as smooth and easy to operate as possible. With the processes streamlined, we’re able to offer a number of exciting services that integrate the crypto world with that of the fiat world, pioneering the altbanking revolution. But before you can tap into the buying, selling, trading and spending wonders of Tap, you’ll first need to complete a simple KYC verification.

KYC, also known as Know Your Customer, is a quick identity verification process that confirms that you are who you say you are. The process is mandatory for all crypto exchanges and is part of a global anti-money laundering regulation. It’s something you’ve got to do, so we’ve made it as quick and simple as possible. Follow the steps below to get started.
