FinCEN proposes KYC for withdrawing Bitcoin to private wallets

They use another terminology for these non-custodial wallets: “digital currencies held in unhosted wallets … or held in wallets hosted in a jurisdiction identified by FinCEN.”

FinCEN defined “unhosted wallets” as a “software program or written record” through which users store the private keys needed to access and exchange cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.

The proposed rule would, in effect, require bitcoin exchanges to collect, store and share personal information from users who transfer their bitcoin private keys from those exchanges to their own private wallets, as well as transaction information.
