You are at the risk of getting hacked, if KYC compliant.
KYC, AML and ABC (Anti-bribery and corruption) compliance are water to the sharks, whales and bubble fish of the financial industry.

This must have KYC reliant government and financial services rather nervous about the growing potential for fraud and identity theft.
