There’s just one more week to go until the 4 December 2020 00:00 UTC deadline for our accelerated User Verification Programme. BitMEX users who have not yet verified should do so by this date in order to continue trading, maintaining open positions, or withdrawing funds.
If you haven’t verified, but still have an open position, it is important that you go through verification before the deadline in order to avoid your position(s) being force-closed. After 00:00 UTC on 4 December, we will review any remaining open positions on unverified accounts and close these in an orderly fashion.
After the deadline, unverified users will also need to complete the verification process in order to withdraw funds.
How do I verify?
Existing users can still verify by visiting bitmex.com/verify. It takes about five minutes for an individual user to complete. We advise corporate clients to start the process immediately given the extra requirements involved. All new users to the platform are already required to verify before they can deposit and trade.
What happens if I miss the deadline on 4 December 2020 at 00:00 UTC?
You can still go through user verification after 4 December and join the vast majority of our users who have already done so. Trading and withdrawal restrictions will be lifted once verification is complete.
How is the User Verification Programme progressing?
Throughout this period of accelerated change for the BitMEX platform, we’ve continued to innovate, launch new products, and improve the trading experience for our clients. We’re proud to confirm that nearly 100 percent of our volume and open interest already comes from verified accounts. We thank our clients and the wider industry for their support as we take our final steps towards becoming a fully verified exchange.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact Support.
