This project is about adding KYC and AML support to GNU Taler by integrating rules for conditions that require users to authenticate or exchange operators to review records for AML. We will be integrating support for KYC via the open OAuth2.0 standard as well as a few (sadly) proprietary APIs to enable compliance. We will also be implementing a (simple) address verification service using the OAuth 2.0 API.
This project is about improving the usability of GNU Taler for regional currencies. It improves account management in libeufin to turn it into a comprehensive stand-alone bank service. We are also adding currency conversion to enable users to convert from and to the regional currency. Furthermore, some time was spent on requirements analysis, revealing the need for merchants without digital infrastructure to receive payments, resulting in us implementing templating support that enables payments to merchants that are fully offline.
We received funding under NGI POINTER to add P2P payments and make GNU Taler more programmable. P2P payments allow wallets to request payments (invoicing) and to offer digital cash directly to other wallets. We also implemented age-restricted payments that allow merchants to validate the age of buyers without disclosing additional information. Finally, we created an early prototype for auctions (but without full integration across all GNU Taler components).
