🏆 How Do I Benefit From These Features?
We have embedded these compliance features into our platform to help our customers stay on the right side of the law. By having these features in place you can capture and manage risk, so you don’t engage with anyone who is linked to illegal or unethical activities.
ID verification tells you who your investors are.
Sanctions and watchlist screening ensures that they are not “blacklisted” for doing illegal or unethical things.
Adverse media screening checks online sources to see if they are reported to have links to illegal or unethical activities.
PEP screening captures whether they are politically exposed and therefore may pose additional risk.

Compliance support is so you have a safe space to ask questions and discuss issues that are relevant to you so you can become more knowledgable and confident in managing compliance risk.
Below we have described how each feature works in greater detail.
🛂 ID Collection And Verification
Presail collects and verifies the identification of your investors prior to investment. Only investors that are KYC-approved can invest.
Investors must sign in with a valid ID, which in turn is verified and approved
Investors are required to do a live selfie verification check to confirm that the person signing in is the same as the person on the ID that has been collected.
❌ Sanctions And Watchlist Screening
For all investors who have successfully completed the ID verification, Presail conducts automated sanctions and watchlist screening:
The screening check whether the investor is on the sanctions list of the UN, EU, US, UK as well as watchlists of other selected jurisdictions.
The sanctions screening also includes checks of the investor’s wallet address(es) against OFAC crypto sanctions.
