Therefore, we must ask for specific documentation depending on the volume you wish to buy, sell or swap. Please see screenshots below for different account levels.

NOTE: If you want to BUY, SELL or SWAP Cryptos, you can do that up to 1,000 CHF per day with only your email and phone. For higher amounts, you need to get verified.
