If you have already sold your Bitcoin via BTC Direct and completed the KYC (Know Your Customer) process for the wallet address you are going to use, feel free to skip steps 5 – 11.

KYC refers to the verification of a customer’s identity, typically by a financial institution. Customers are required to provide personal information. The information is used to ensure that the customers are not involved in financial crimes such as corruption, bribery, money laundering, and terrorism financing. If you do not complete the KYC process, you may not be able to access some features on a cryptocurrency exchange.

Step 1. Have your personal email address, phone number, and identity document ready.

BTC Direct supports 3 kinds of documents: ID card, passport, and driving license. Please make sure that your document meets the following requirements:

  1. Your document is not expired.
  2. All 4 corners are visible.
  3. Your face is on the document.

Then click the icon to select the bank account you want to receive your Euro.
