How do I do this?
As you create your account, the last step in the process will ask you for your personal ID documents. These could be any of the following:
- Driving license
- National ID card
You will also need to supply a selfie of yourself, holding up your ID, with a legible piece of paper with ‘Xcoins.com’ and today’s date written on it.
Please note: in some cases you may not live in the country your ID documentation displays. As long as your country of residence is a country or state (US) we serve, you should be able to use your ID documentation to open up an account with Xcoins.

This is standard practise across the financial sector, and a requirement from regulators across the world. In fact, it’s a sign that your dealing with a legitimate company. If you use a site to purchase tokens and are not asked to verify your identity, you should be very wary.
