To open a basic account (Tier 1 and Tier 2) and get started trading, we only ask a few things. An advanced account (Tier 3 and higher) is like opening a bank account and requires supporting documents.
The different Verification Tiers are as follows:
Tier 0 - this is the default Tier obtained after registering your account and confirming your email address. You can look around to get the feel of the interface and platform, but you can't deposit, withdraw or make any trades.
Tier 1 - you can deposit and withdraw in digital currency only. Trading, however, is enabled in digital as well as fiat currencies. Full name, date of birth, country and phone number are required.
Tier 2 - you can deposit, withdraw and trade in digital currency, and depending on your country of residence, fiat currency funding may be accessible to you. Bank deposits and withdrawals are available to clients in some areas at this Tier. You are required to provide your physical address.
Tier 3 - fiat currency funding is available to Tier 3 clients and funding limits are much higher than Tier 2. You are required to upload an identity and proof of residence document.
Tier 4 - like Tier 3 but with even higher funding and trading limits. This Tier is available to high-volume individual or corporate traders. The required documents for Tier 4 individual accounts include a signed application form and KYC documents.
In order to start the verification process, please log into your account and navigate to the Get Verified > Tier 1 tabs from the menu.
