Since then, the exchange grew regularly and now transfers 5000 – 10000 of Bitcoin daily.
Registered users are asked to confirm their personal details by providing their full name, address, copy of ID, copy of utility bill, photo of user holding an ID, telephone number. Two-factor authentication is available via Google Authenticator. When logged in to their profiles, users can see important information like trade history, market data, invoices, API and of course sell or buy Bitcoins.
