Verify? – Why?

In New Zealand, it is mandatory for crypto brokers like us make sure that our customers are who they say they are. This is called KYC, and its required by NZ law as a measure against money laundering. You can learn more about why we have to comply here, but this is standard procedure for all exchanges and brokers in NZ.

We know from our own experiences that this can be a pain, so that’s why we have made it as easy as possible for you to get verified.

We use an automatic ID system called Origin ID, so you can be verified and ready to trade within 3 minutes on average. Your information is 100% safe, and the only person who will ever see it is our compliance officer Janine. You can verify by going to Account > Verification > Upgrade, or you can click here.
