Bitstocks uses a real-time identity verification system to validate your credentials online. This is a legal requirement in order to ensure Bitstocks is complying with relevant Anti Money Laundering (AML) regulations. In order for us to validate who you are all we require is your name, address and date of birth. This process is automated and works behind the scenes during your account application process. In some cases we may require additional information to verify your identity. In these cases you will be contacted directly by a member of our accounts team.
