How do I complete identity verification level 1?

OKEx asks you to verify your identity to perform certain tasks on the exchange. You might have seen this process of verification referred to as KYC (Know Your Customer), and we do this to keep the exchange safe from fraud and other illicit activities.

Without verification you can still use your account to deposit, but you will not be able to withdraw funds and your trading will be limited.

Level 1 asks you to verify your personal information so that we can increase your daily withdrawal limit to the equivalent of 200 BTC.

【PC】

Go to the account profile icon, found in the top navigation bar. Click on the icon and choose Verification from the dropdown menu.
