Note: we have made a tutorial on how to set up 2fa, check it up because it helps

This is a complete tutorial on ID Verification of Cryptocurrency Exchange accounts on Luno, CEX crypto exchange, and other best 1,000 crypto/broker websites.

As it stands, getting your crypto wallet account verified is the third thing on the list of options you want to fulfill after opening your account and setting up a two-factor authentication, and of course, creating a hackers private key.

I cannot imagine the simplicity of using crypto exchanges like CEX.IO and Luno, but most especially CEX.IO with over 8 cryptos to manage. It is so a great Altcoin exchange to work with — exciting I mean.

However, as we know, the excitement of getting our crypto wallet account opened is just the first step. Yet the expectation to go further can be cut short if we don’t take the time to get our accounts verified.

For an example, if you are on Luno, if your account is not verified, you cannot make a direct purchase. So, everything may just be at default. And same goes on with CEX crypto exchange website.

Again, if you want to make direct withdrawals on CEX cryptocurrency account, that wouldn’t be possible until your account is fully verified.

But how can you do these if you are not shown how to?

Certainly, if you are a user on Luno exchange, you would have known that verifying your Level 1 online account there is very simple. In fact, it takes just about 2 minutes and you are done.

Be it as it may, you need to know that the first security starts with the type of crypto website and wallets you use. See the guides below for indepth advise on how to stay safe.

Even though a lot of Blockchain projects have come in to make the identity verification of users very simple and straightforward, like in the good old days, KYC — know your customer is still very relevant.

Often at times, these verification processes are handled manually which we can all agree puts the supports and the departments responsible at pressure to deliver.

So, all in all, users ID verification are approved manually — to know the true validity.


Over the years of being relevant in the cryptocurrency world, getting my crypto account verified was very very simple on Luno crypto exchange. At least the Fastest Cryptocurrency Exchange Verification I have ever used.

Also, if you are on CEX exchange, with the filling of your documents in one page, you are in to getting your online wallet account verified — under 3 minutes this time.


Most of the times, the ID verification procedures are fairly similar on all exchange websites. The first step, of course, requires the user to fill in his or her basic identity information.

To progress to level 2 or other value accounts, an additional document verification process is required like submitting residential address, billing address, Bank statements, and other ID proofs.


The truth about getting your account verified is hung on some factors. And one of them is the queuing process. This is what I mean, just as I stated above that this process may be handled manually. If your application to get your crypto account verified hangs, it thereof means that there is an existing queue upfront.

What to do?

All you need to is keep trying until your verification application is accepts. Luckily, you won’t be required to resend all your documents, so, everything will be stay with the exchange website.

Again note that this may not be true on some exchanges. For an example, I did not wait on the queue to get a first tier verification on Luno exchange.

Secondly, the Identity verification tier you are applying for can be a major factor getting delayed. Still, on Luno exchange, for instance, each verification stage has some limitation to how much you can do with your account until you get all the three tiers completed.

So, while the first tier (stage) may not demand so much, the second may, and the time it takes to get it done can double up.


OKEx Exchange uses three levels of verification, depending on the single transaction limit.

On Level 1, you have a single transaction limit of $10,000 per order or even $2,000 for trades involving fiat currency.

On Luno exchange, when you get your account verified, you can buy Bitcoin as low as $2.

Binance will take you 3 days to get your crypto exchange account verified.

Bitcoincoid will take you 12 hours to get your crypto exchange account verified.

CEX will take you ZERO Day — same day verification. Please find out more below.


To get it done, let’s see the list.

National identification proof — International passport (major).

Real Name

Real ID Number

Residential address proof

Mobile number confirmation

photo ID

Credit card verification proof — not all exchanges.

Driver license

SSN — for higher verification accounts

Signed application form and KYC documents — for the highest verification accounts.

Note: most times, some of the documents you might be asked to provide are just three. So, don’t be afraid of the whole list.

However, it will be so good if you can present an international passport (for most 2nd & 3rd world countries) since most of the level 2 verification requires it.

You can make purchases at Bitcoin accepted places, and etc.
