How To Verify Your Identity On KuCoin (Step-By-Step)

Before starting the ID verification procedure, you must log in to your KuCoin account.

Step 1

In order to begin the ID verification, hover over your account’s icon in the top right corner and choose ‘KYC verification’ from the drop-down menu.

Upon registering, you’re given ‘unverified’ status, which entitles you to deposit, exchange, margin trade, and up to 5 BTC daily withdrawal limit. However, in order to increase your benefits, two further verification steps (KYC1 and KYC2) must be completed.

Step 2

On the following screen, you will be presented with your current verification status, which by default is ‘unverified,’ along with the benefits of undergoing the KYC1 process. In order to proceed, you must click on ‘Start Verification.’ Please note that you cannot advance to KYC2 without first completing the intermediate verification.

Step 3

You will be directed to the verification screen after clicking on the ‘Start Verification’ button. There, you’ll be prompted to choose your country/region of residency from a drop-down menu.

You will also be asked to enter your full legal name and surname. Finally, you must choose the right form of identity document (passport, driver’s license, or ID card) and enter the reference number associated with it. After that, read the User Identity Authentication Statement, check the green box, and then click “Submit.”

Step 4

After you’ve confirmed your basic information, you will be taken to the next screen, which confirms the completion of the KYC1 process. Here, as indicated in the picture below, you are presented with your current benefits that you can enjoy after completing the initial verification procedure.

For instance, KYC1 authentication extends the operations that the user can perform, enabling the customer to trade fiat currencies to cryptos with the daily limit of 70,000 USDT, execute Futures trades at maximum leverage of 100x, and withdraw funds capped at 200 BTC a day.

However, those who are looking to obtain more trading benefits can choose to proceed to the next screen and complete the advanced KYC2 procedure.

Advanced KYC2 Verification

This stage entails uploading your identification documents and other credentials to the system to prove your identity. It’s crucial to remember that the documents must be genuine, legible, and unaltered; otherwise, the user risks failing the authentication process.

Step 5

In the next step, the user is given a choice of either submitting ID photos via the KuCoin app or by uploading both the front and the back of the document via the website.

Those who want to use their phones should download the app, scan the QR code on the screen, and upload their photographs according to the instructions.

Alternatively, users can choose to use the web version to upload the required documents [see below].

It is crucial to keep in mind that the pictures must be in JPG or PNG format, with a maximum file size of 3 MB for photos submitted using the app and 4 MB for documents uploaded via the desktop version.

Step 6

After uploading the front and back of your chosen ID document, you must include a portrait photo of yourself with your original ID document, as well as a handwritten paper letter with the following details:

Your handwritten signature, which is actually your full legal name; Dynamic code that appears on KuCoin’s website or app and consists of numbers and characters; Today’s date in the following format ‘YEAR-MONTH-DAY.’

It is crucial to ensure that your face is clearly visible and your identity details are easily recognizable and unobstructed. Furthermore, please keep in mind that the dynamic code you must provide on your handwritten note changes every day, so double-check it before submitting the files. The use of a typed signature or Photoshop is strictly not permitted, as this might result in your verification being unsuccessful.

For an in-depth explanation of how to proceed with this stage, make sure to check out this video tutorial.

Step 7

If you are satisfied with your submitted photos of ID as well as the information on the written note, click ‘Submit’ to complete the procedure. If your photographs were in the right format and size, you should be taken to the screen below, which confirms the files’ submission and the expected review time. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to complete the procedure may vary depending on the amount of outstanding verifications.

Final Thoughts

KYC-certified accounts are eligible for a greater daily withdrawal limit and improve the KuCoin platform as a whole, in addition to preventing money laundering, fraud, terrorist funding, and other harmful actions. Therefore, users should be encouraged to complete the authentication procedure in order to reap the full benefits of the exchange.

However, even if one opts not to have a verified account, KuCoin supports this option for the user, allowing modest trades to still be executed.
