The exchange said every new user on the platform would be required to complete KYC verification first and also urged existing users to complete their KYC at the earliest. For the existing users who have not yet completed their KYC, their account status would be changed to “Withdraw Only”, which would limit the account actions to withdrawal, order cancellation, position close, and redemption. KYC verification would be carried out in phases,
“This will be carried out in phases to minimize user-experience disruption, from now through 2021-10-19 00:00 AM (UTC). Existing users will be informed directly with more details. Once users complete the Intermediate Verification, they will be able to resume full access to Binance products and services.”The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Financial Watch.
