Verification (KYC)

KYC (Know Your Customer) verification is required to combat money laundering and tax evasion. For the user, this means the security of his assets and the privacy of his data. Failure to verify will result in limited trading for you. To do that:

  • Fill out the form without skipping the required fields.
  • Upload a clear photo of your identity documents: passport, international passport, ID card, or driver’s license. Don’t crop or edit the photo.
  • Take a selfie with a document and a piece of paper with “” and the date of application.
  • Wait for the results. Follow the request status in the “Verification” section.
