Verifying your identity does not have to be a frustrating experience, so we made sure that our traders can go through the whole process in just five minutes.

We’re speaking of what essentially is a first tier verification, which means a full one will be required at times when the user intends to exceed Tier I limits.

However, for 90% of our traders, Tier I is enough to satisfy their daily needs: any eligible user who verifies himself on this level will be able to trade cryptocurrencies with fiat with a 1,000 limit per day up to €5000 using their SEPA bank account or Klarna (different limits apply to mobile purchases).

Traders are also complemented with a renewed user interface which is now much more convenient and pleasant to eye.
