Create, verify and secure your account
The first step in joining the Bitpanda family is creating an account, which is easy and only takes a couple of minutes of your time:
Note: Opening and maintaining a Bitpanda account is 100% free of charge.
Next, Bitpanda users are required to verify their Bitpanda accounts due to the AML5 EU regulation. Verification is a quick and easy process, which we are happy to support you with in the following article:
Note: To use our services, you need to be at least 18 years of age. Additionally, please check if you reside in one of the countries which the verification process is supported in and make sure to use one of the accepted documents for verification.
Verified? Great – now it is time to make sure your account is safe. As your security is our priority, we strongly recommend that you enable two-factor authentication (2FA). For further information, feel free to have a look at the following articles:
