Because of the new Wwft legislation that comes into effect on 21 May 2020, LiteBit users will need to verify their account.
The Wwft is an abbreviation for the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act. The purpose of this Act is to combat money laundering and terrorist financing and to guarantee the integrity of the financial markets.
As of 21 May 2020, LiteBit is legally obliged to obtain a minimum of information from its users. This helps to prevent money laundering and terrorism.
In accordance with the legal obligations, we must, therefore, ask you to go through this KYC (Know Your Customer) flow once when you sign up. Unfortunately, you cannot avoid this process even if you contact us about this issue.
The flow consists of a few steps that you can go through in a few minutes. You can rest assured that your data will be treated with the utmost security and confidentiality.
Read more about how your personal documents are stored.
If you're already fully verified, you don't need to go through the KYC flow. You can then use all of our services as usual without having to do anything else.
If you are not authenticated and wish to continue using our services, as usual, you will need to verify your account.

Tip: we recommend that you do not wait until the very last moment to verify your account, as this could lead to complications in your account.
We understand that this can be very frustrating, but there is no alternative or solution we can offer. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Contact Customer Support on +31 (0) 10 310 41 75. Available Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Do you have an urgent question? Ask our chatbot.

Many people believe that Bitcoin is anonymous and that nobody can see who is behind each Bitcoin address. That is true to some extent but with blockchain analysis there is a tool available that can reveal the origin of funds. Most crypto companies use such services to block funds that originate from dubious sources such as Darknet marketplaces. Criminals are creative and responded with so-called Bitcoin tumblers to disguise their digital trails.

Most cryptocurrencies are open-source software and everybody is encouraged to develop them and search for vulnerabilities. Many cryptos rely on the work of volunteers that spend much of their time improving existing code or inventing solutions for problems that can be solved with blockchain technology. The motivation to dedicate time and resources can be very different. Some developers work because they believe in changing the world for the better. Others like to be recognized by their community and some are making a living by relying on bug bounties or grants.
