Opening An Account: Getting Started

The Blockchain Exchange is a web platform that is mobile responsive for devices such as iOS, or Android. All you need to sign up is your name, a valid email address, date of birth, and home address. It’s easy to get started!

1. Go to https://exchange.blockchain.com/ and click on the ‘SIGN UP’ button at the top of the page.

3. If you already have a Blockchain wallet, you have the option to click “Connect to Blockchain Wallet”. This will enable you to easily transfer funds between The Exchange and your Blockchain Wallet. Also, if your Blockchain Wallet is already Gold level verified, you can instantly benefit from Gold level limits on the Blockchain Exchange. If you didn't have a wallet created previously you can create a New Wallet at the same time with your Exchange account, for more information on how to create a linked account please click HERE.

If you wish to skip this step and want to open a Blockchain Exchange account only select "No Thanks, Continue to the Exchange"

Note: Connecting to your Blockchain Wallet is only possible during Sign Up. You will NOT be able to do this later.

5. Once you have verified your email a new page will appear where you will be required to fill out your personal information as well as a username for your Exchange account. Once this is complete you will receive confirmation that your silver level has been unlocked, you can select "Continue to Gold Verification" if you want to increase your trading limits or you can select "Start Trading" to complete your account creation.

After you create your account, you’ll want to:

  1. Consider unlocking Gold Level Verification for fiat deposits and increased withdrawal levels (if you didn't already link your Gold Level verified wallet).
  2. Secure your account by implementing two-factor authentication (2FA). Please also write down your back-up codes by navigating to Profile > Security so you can unlock your account in the case of a lost 2FA device. You can learn more about setting up your 2FA here.
  3. Fund your account.  

You can learn more about trading limits for each verification tier HERE.
