A new type of business – selling accounts on cryptocurrency exchanges
Recently, a number of trading platforms, including Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex and CEX.IO, have suspended new user registrations in light of the skyrocketing interest in cryptocurrencies. In addition, the Poloniex exchange announced that in the near future, owners of unverified accounts will no longer be able to use its platform for trading. All this led to the fact that ads began to appear on the network for the sale of “fully verified accounts”.
For example, on the Bitcointalk.org forum, they sell a verified account on Poloniex (third level verification), for which the withdrawal limit is $ 25,000 per day, for $ 12. The same seller is giving away a Bittrex account for $ 10.
Another user uses the Selly platform to sell accounts.
“Hi guys. I am selling a verified Bittrex account with a daily limit of 100 BTC “.
Verification is becoming standard practice for most cryptocurrency exchanges. Even platforms such as BTC-e, which in the past were loyal to user identification, now increasingly require a certain set of documents. Usually users need to confirm a phone number, submit an identity document, and in some cases also upload a photo with it and a document confirming the address.
Some exchanges do not allow trading without prior verification at all, as Poloniex is going to do, while others limit the amount of funds available for withdrawal, such as Binance, which does not allow unverified users to withdraw more than 2 BTC per day..
In addition to forums, accounts are sold in popular instant messengers, for example, Telegram. They offer accounts on Bitstamp, Bittrex, GDAX and other exchanges.
Buying such an account is in any case not the best solution, since there is always a risk that the former owner will be able to restore access to it and withdraw funds located there..
