3: Register

Go in Settings > My profile > Register, and choose the "Signature" authentication mode. You will also need to provide an email address where you will receive notifications about your purchases.

Registering allows to buy crypto in cash without having to verify your identity up to CHF1,000 per month and CHF12,000 per year.

To buy above these limits, you can verify your identity. For more info, please see our support page.
