Who we are

Argos is Korea’s leading KYC/AML service company, which allows financial service providers, online platform enterprises, and other businesses to effectively apply legal, regulatory and operational measures for combating identity theft, money laundering, and terrorist financing. Our AI-based technology assesses whether a user’s government-issued ID and facial biometric is genuine or fraudulent, and evaluates if a person complies with international financial regulations. That’s how we give our clients the assurance they need to onboard customers remotely and securely.

Mission Statement

Create a world where good people transact safely, and keep the bad people out.

Our Story

We launched Argos in 2018 with a strong belief that the cryto currency industry can thrive only when the players comply with international financial regulations.In line with our belief, as the cryto currency market burgeoned with high volatility, each government has come up with different sets of regulations to monitor the new market.
The FATF recently announced a final recommendation to regard cryto currency as a virtual asset in June 2019, requiring virtual asset businesses to store and exchange information on cross-border transfers among the member countries.In such market where new regulatory rules are continuously being introduced and tested, a keen observance of international regulatory outlook and nimble compliance, of which Argos provides, are highly required.
We aim to provide the most reliable and efficient system to manage outpouring information and identity verification.The most renowned blockchain projects and firms in South Korea as well as cryptocurrency exchanges from Asia, Eastern Europe and German compliance firms have chosen Argos as their KYC/AML service provider.
