From this day forward, natural persons can make use of a simplified KYC approach. A simple, time-saving KYC process allows new CoinGate traders to quickly verify personal accounts and use a full scope of trading services. 

Such a simple way of identifying customers will surely speed up a dull process of setting up an account and, hopefully, become the preferred method for new CoinGate traders to start. 

Simplified KYC for traders: rules and requirements

After passing the simplified KYC process (Dashboard->Account->Verification), users can buy and sell 10+ different crypto-assets worth up to €1,000 per month with a total limit of €5,000.

For traders, providing a valid ID card or passport is enough to pass the simplified KYC entirely. All customers go through live ID verification using Onfido.

According to the local Lithuanian laws, this is the information that has to be shown on the document for us to consider it as a valid ID:

  • Date of Birth or Personal Code;
  • Signature.

  3. Fill out the empty information fields and click “Next”;
  4. Upload a copy of ID card or passport with a selfie;
  5. Finalize the verification and wait for approval!
