Verify your identity

After you have successfully created your account, you will need to verify your identity.

Identity Verification is required to open a Bittrex Global account to comply with "Know-Your-Customer" or "KYC" regulations. It is also extremely important to us at Bittrex Global for three main reasons:

  • Safety: to protect our users against theft, fraud, and abuse of the Bittrex Global platform

  • Compliance: to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act, U.S. economic sanctions laws, and other legal and regulatory requirements

  • Ethics: to make sure our services are not used to launder money, support terrorism, commit fraud or other illegal activities 

We pride ourselves on our robust compliance program - your safety is our top priority!

Verify your Identity

You can do this on mobile or web. 

Mobile Web
  1. After creating your account, in the same session, the next page should show "What you'll need for this next step." Scroll down and tap Continue.

    Note:

    If you are returning to the app after a previous session where you created your account but not yet verified your identity, you should see a pop up that says "Wait!..." and you can tap Finish Sign-Up.
