Depending on the configuration of the vault, it may be necessary to be KYC. If so, there will be a "KYCed vault" label on the vault.

To do so, you must go here to obtain proof of identity:

Once the KYC is completed, you will receive a ShprdKYC NFT. This is a non-transferable ERC721 token which proves that you are KYC, without revealing your identity.

No personal or confidential information is stored on the blockchain, so the sovereignty of your data is guaranteed.

KYC status

At the top right of the application, you can see the KYC status information:

  • KYC Status: User's KYC status and link to kyc.shprd.finance

  • KYC NFT: User balance and address of the NFT KYC contract. The balance will be equal to 1 if the user is KYC.

Who can mint

Shprd's KYC process is managed by decentralised protocols, approved to validate an individual's identity. Once an individual's KYC has been validated, the ShprdKYC NFT is minted automatically or, in some cases, manually if further verification actions are required.

Waiting time

Once the KYC request is made, the verification process may take a few days. Due to high demand, please be patient!
