Important User Verification Deadline on 4 December 2020

BitMEX users who have not yet verified have two more weeks to do so in order to continue trading, maintaining open positions, or withdrawing funds from the platform. Nearly all of our users by volume and open interest have now successfully completed verification, putting the accelerated User Verification Programme firmly on track. 

From 4 December 2020 at 00:00 UTC

Unverified users will need to complete the verification process in order to withdraw funds. Withdrawals will be processed normally post verification. 

After 4 December 2020 at 00:00 UTC, we will review any remaining open positions on unverified accounts and facilitate an orderly closing of these positions. It is very important that users who choose not to verify close their positions before 4 December 2020 to avoid their positions being force-closed. 

Can I still complete verification?

Existing users can still verify by visiting It takes around five minutes for an individual user to complete. For corporate clients, we advise starting the process as soon as possible given the extra requirements involved. All new users to the platform are required to verify before they can deposit and trade. 

We thank all our users for their support in accommodating the accelerated rollout of verification. With top-tier liquidity, lower trading fees, new products and features, and the largest insurance fund in the market to protect user profits, it’s a great time to be on the BitMEX platform.
