You will send a specific, additional micro-amount with your deposit to verify ownership of the address.
You will first send a micro-transaction as a deposit from the external address to Bitcoin Suisse to verify ownership of the address.
You will send a micro-transaction as a deposit from this external address to verify ownership of this address and continue using it.
You will first make a small, one-time withdrawal from your Bitcoin Suisse account, then send a micro-transaction as a deposit to Bitcoin Suisse to verify ownership of this address.
What is it and how does it work?
Proof-of-ownership is a way to be sure that you control the external crypto wallet that you use to deposit to or withdraw crypto assets from your Bitcoin Suisse account.
We want to help guarantee the security of your crypto assets at all times. As a regulated service provider, we also need to comply with anti-money laundering guidelines.
To verify that you control the external crypto wallet you use to deposit or withdraw, we ask you to make a small, micro-transaction in a certain period of time. This transaction amounts to about 5 CHF and is automatically credited to you after the process.
You may continue to trade through your Bitcoin Suisse account as normal without any changes. When you wish to deposit crypto assets to your account, you will be prompted to make an additional micro-transaction together with your deposit. You will do this each time you deposit crypto assets.
When you wish to withdraw crypto assets to an external wallet, you will need to first send a micro-transaction from that wallet to your Bitcoin Suisse account to show that you control the external wallet address. Once you do this, you will have a verified withdrawal account for your crypto assets at Bitcoin Suisse and do not need to verify your address again.
In the case of reference-based cryptocurrencies such as EOS and XRP, the verification is made by adding a MEMO in the reference field when carrying out the transaction.
If you want to send crypto assets to your Bitcoin Suisse account or withdraw them to an external wallet, you will need to carry out the proof-of-ownership process.
Regardless of when you onboarded as a client of Bitcoin Suisse, you will need to carry out the proof-of-ownership verification process to verify your wallet.
You will make the micro-transaction to verify your ownership each time you deposit crypto assets. The first time you use a wallet address to withdraw assets you will make this transaction to confirm your ownership. Afterwards, you will have a verified withdrawal account for your crypto assets and you do not need to make this micro-transaction again.
Deposits and withdrawals of fiat currencies (CHF, USD, EUR, GBP) are not included in this Proof-of-Ownership process. This process applies only to crypto asset transfers.
The wallet address verification process does not affect your trading account or portfolio. You may trade crypto-to-crypto or fiat-to-crypto within your Bitcoin Suisse account as normal without completing the proof-of-ownership process. When you want to withdraw crypto assets or deposit more crypto assets, you will need to complete the verification process.
Beginning on 20 April 2020, all external addresses used for deposits and withdrawal must be verified. If you used an external wallet address for withdrawals before, you will see it marked as “Pending” in your Bitcoin Suisse Online account. You will need to do proof-of-ownership to verify it and continue using it.
