Why does Bitbuy need to verify my identity?

  • Updated

Before we let people use our platform, we need to make sure they are who they say they are. 

As a registered MSB in Canada, we need to follow strict KYC, AML, and ATF policies outlined by FINTRAC. Verification is a big part of those policies. It’s just one of the ways we’re working to prevent fraud, increase security, and keep your funds safe.
