Our Story

Having a decade of experience working at an enterprise security software firm, CEO Wonkyu Lee saw the emergence of AI and blockchain technology as new business opportunities in the digital ID and digital finance industry. In 2018, Lee started Argos KYC to innovate digital ID verification. The team created a contactless ID verification service that streamline and secure the onboarding process of global users. The company was named Argos KYC from the hundred-eyed giant Greek mythology Argos to safeguard against identity theft, fraud, and money laundering.

 

Argos KYC launched its service in South Korea in 2018 and soon was able to serve customers from 14 countries. In preparation for a full-scale global expansion, Argos KYC Inc. was established in the United States in 2021. Argos KYC continuously challenges to perfect the service through relentless research in forgery detection and blockchain technology.
