We focus on providing a platform where you can buy and sell cryptocurrencies as easily as possible. However, offering services without identifying our users would open the door for illicit activity. For instance, a criminal could use a compromised bank account or credit card to purchase some bitcoins. In order to keep both our users and our platform safe from fraudulent transactions, we ask you to identify yourself before you can start using our platform.
The documents we receive from you will be saved on an offline, encrypted hard drive. The provided documents are only available to BTC Direct employees, and will never be shared with third parties.
