From 15 September 2020, all new registrations will require the user to complete ID verification before being able to make deposits and trade on the platform, or receive affiliate income for referrals.
This requirement for new accounts does not impact the verification timeline for existing BitMEX users. Since the launch of our Verification Programme, a significant number of existing users have successfully completed ID verification, and those yet to do so still have until 12 February 2021 to complete the process. If you have already completed ID verification, you should not repeat it on an additional account.
All users, whether new or existing, will need to have completed verification in order to be eligible to compete for prizes in next month’s Trading Tournament.
Through making this change we are better able to maintain fair access to the platform for all users.
