Being registered in the Republic of Lithuania, EXMO.com is a global exchange which is based in the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, and the United States. It has currently more than 1 million users across 170 countries.
EXMO.com envisions a world where crypto is in every wallet. They want to achieve this by making crypto as accessible as possible to everyone through OTC trading, API, a mobile app, and their Earn program.
EXMO.com needed a solution to reduce manual work and streamline the customer onboarding processes. Prior to using Sumsub, they had a manual verification process in place, which made it difficult to scale and prevent fraud at the same time.
Since EXMO.com operates in 180 countries, they needed support for a range of documents for regions across the world.
EXMO.com evaluated several verification providers. Ultimately, Sumsub stood out due to its comprehensive document handling capabilities, address verification, support for various languages, OCR engine, user-friendly features, and reliable customer support. Sumsub’s holistic approach, reasonable pricing, and transparent conditions sealed the deal, promising to help EXMO.com speed up user onboarding and prevent fraud.

Sumsub solves a critical problem for our team – verification speed. Also, it ensures regulatory compliance through comprehensive AML checks, mitigating risks, and meeting industry requirements. With ongoing monitoring capabilities, Sumsub helps us stay updated on customer risk profiles.
