    Asked a Bitfinex staff about this earlier today, they replied:

    If you are a normal everyday individual trader it should never become an issue for you. But if transacting in fiat bitfinex has a regulatory obligation to make sure you are a normal everyday individual trader and not a space pirate
    So it appears it's to do with users depositing or withdrawing fiat to Bitfinex, those are what raise KYC issues, which is similar to all the rest like Coinbase, Gemini, etc.
