Identity + Photo Verification

Why am I being asked to complete this process?

As a regulated financial service company operating in the US we are periodically required to identify users on our platform. This ensures we remain in compliance with KYC/AML laws in the jurisdictions in which we operate, something that is necessary for us to be able to continue to offer digital currency exchange services to our customers. For more details on what information we collect and how we securely store and protect these records, please refer to our Privacy Policy.
