Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin talks about KYC
Here’s the relevant tweet that Buterin shared on his social media account:
The “KYC on defi frontends” idea does not seem very pointful to me: it would annoy users but do nothing against hackers. Hackers write custom code to interact with contracts already. Exchanges are clearly a much more sensible place to do the KYC, and that’s happening already.

He said the following:
“Basically, there’s two main classes of regulatory policy goals: (i) consumer protection, (ii) making it harder for baddies to move large amounts of money around. The issues around (ii) are concentrated not in defi, but in large-scale crypto payments in general.”
He also made sure to explain these important points:
“Regs on defi frontends that *could* be more helpful may include:
(i) limits on leverage
(ii) requiring transparency about what audits, FV or other security checks were done on contract code
(iii) usage gated by knowledge-based tests instead of plutocratic net-worth minimum rules”
