KYD Verification FAQ
KYD has been gaining momentum everyday and we’ve been growing at a fast pace. As more verifications are submitted we will run a higher chance of one of these projects failing or simply completely losing on the exchange. We have been receiving a lot of questions both public and private about what will occur when this happens to one of the verified coins. We wanted to take a moment to first go over the details of the verification process and what will happen if one of these verified coins goes south.

Verification Process
KYD is just beginning and currently the verification process is the most basic option the platform will offer. In the future, we are expanding to a much broader verification and coin escrow service. This platform is currently being developed. The current process involves the team/coin lead submitting his state-issued ID along with a selfie – this will at least confirm who is behind the coin. THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE or ENDORSEMENT of a coin. PLEASE DO NOT buy a coin based on our verification alone. We never recommend buying a coin on one factor alone such as a Twitter shill or even a KYD verification. Any crypto purchase should be DYOR (Do Your Own Research).

What happens when a verified coin fails?
In the event of a KYD verified coin either failing or not delivering on their promises, we will remove their listing on our website and will let the community know. Please submit any tips or reasons you think a current coin should not be listed. We are open to advice or information (might be best to submit in private). We are not planning on publishing their private ID all over the internet for multiple legal reasons. However, if they outright steal BTC and a criminal investigation is underway will be happy to provide all the information requested by authorities.

Does verification mean you like the coin or their project?
We want to be very clear that verification only means we've verified their state issued ID as stated above. The project may still be an idea that people won't buy or will fail based on being just a plain bad coin idea. They may have the best intentions but their idea never catches on. There is a big difference from a scam coin that only has the plan of stealing BTC versus a coin that just doesn't succeed. Please understand the risk in crypto and investing. KYD is not responsible for any loss to one of our verified coins.

The ID verification in no way guarantees your funds are safe. KYD has a verification process that includes a state issued ID and selfie. We only verify the main developer or project lead at this time. KYD will be expanding verification levels in the coming updates, but at this time this is solely a beta product and should be used as a reference only. This is not financial advice.

We are pleased to announce that KYD won the listing on Txbit.io with 2876 votes! The exchange is already available. Also, after the end of voting, the team's wallet stacking is disabled and Discord moderation level back to normal.

Does House Always Win in Conventional Gambling?

The start of casino craze has sparked from the year 1683 from the streets of Venice to the casinos of Vegas. From Casino di Venezia to online/cyber betting, the concept of gambling has seen many transformations. But the biggest revolution of all is the integration of Blockchain technology into the gambling industry. And this technology has raised contradiction to the traditional idea of ‘House Always Wins.’

House never wins in the crypto world. Why? Because there is no house. Yes, the technology has facilitated the eradication of house (casino) involvement in the gambling industry. Like any other business, it has a business model in place designed to ensure its profitability. Casino games are designed in a manner where whatever game you play, the casino gets a percentage share out of the potential payout of the players. This house edge ensures the survival of the casino, payment of its employees and profits to satisfy shareholders.

This is where the concept of Smart Contract comes in. A smart contract is a computer protocol designed to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of credible transactions without third parties. In other words, smart contracts help in the creation of a program comprising a set of rules and penalties that guides the exchange of money, property, or anything of value between said parties, without any intermediaries.

Smart contracts run on the blockchain, which is automated to do functions performed by human beings. They can be tailored to perform the following tasks:

to deliver gambling services, betting on sporting events, lotteries, etc.
enable players to deposit currency into the smart contract until the end of the game
to check the results from multiple sources to ensure that the correct result is obtained, and
reward payments to winning players based on predefined rules and odds.
Aforementioned provide the players with more transparency in transactions as everything in that runs through the smart contract, remains on record within the blockchain and can’t be tempered without everyone on the network knowing about it.

Genuinely versatile, smart contracts eliminate the need for human or infrastructural management and significantly reduce the house edge, making them ideal for the gambling sector.

YOUnited is such a startup, taking inspiration from the blockchain gambling revolution and using its own blockchain technology to bring a completely new experience for betting & gaming industry. Their decentralized platform provides player vs player betting & gaming and guarantees 100% return to player (RTP) in combination with zero house edge through YOUnited protocol and unique distributed Random number generator. Instant payouts, no house control over player’s deposit and maximum transparency via smart contracts are inherent.

Going by what smart contracts have to offer, just like all the other industries captured by Blockchain Technology, blockchain gambling seems to be a promising industry with huge potential.

​August brings us new interesting news ☺

It has taken some time but the first cleaning round is here. At the start of 2018 we decided to stop with our private listings. A private listing is a verification done by the KYD team whereby no picture, name, country of residence are visible for the public. Our goal is transparancy for you and everybody in cryptosphere, for that reason we decided to offer them a free public reverification.

We contacted the listed projects to review the listing and to offer them a free public listing incase they were still listed privately. Some teams did not respond, some negative and others very positive.

Projects that accepted our free offer to go public:

  • Cryptonodes, Bettex, Ragna, Worx, XUEZ, XDNA.

Projects that have rejected our free offer:

  • Deviant, Bitcoin incognito, Xorn, Cryptofight club, Glyno, PWR.

Projects where no contact has been established:

  • Motion, Graphcoin, Epic, Turbostake, Dividend cash, MMO, Concierge coin, Pandemia, Coin2play, Printex.

For the projects that refused our offer a delisting will follow in the next couple of days. For those who accepted our offer a reverification will be scheduled the upcoming weeks, till the verification is completed they will be reflected on our platform as projects in queue (orange outline).

Developers from XDNA have completed the public KYD verification​! This is our first project going from private to public, we hope more will follow.

Also we have been discussing ways to help our investors as well as alternative platforms for use of our coin. One consideration was to create our own VPS hosting product which uses KYD for the monthly charge. We wanted to gather feedback from our investors to understand the interest and likely demand. Discussion and voting on the Discord channel #community-feedback​.

Benefits:

  • Pay in KYD/BTC/USD/Other country currency we can add
  • Comparable equivalency pricing to Contabo
  • Packages geared towards KYD nodes (more memory/lower CPU)
  • Node installation recipes pre-built that can be installed via user vps panel
  • VPS Supplier already KYD verified
  • 10% of fees charged returned to KYD premine

We're proud to announce that the developers from Northern (NORT) have completed KYD verification! Their identity is now known and confirmed by KYD.
