Signup and Verification Guide

Cubits

1) Upon entering the site, you’ll immediately be prompted to sign up for a wallet. Make sure that you enter your legal name and that your password includes one special character, such as an exclamation point. Afterwards, you’ll receive an email with instructions to activate your account.

2) When you log back in, the first thing you should do is click “Verify Me”. If you skip this step, you won’t be able to use credit card payments or Skrill.

After clicking the button, you’ll be notified that only some countries are supported by the system. Please make sure that you have government ID from at least one of these countries and that your webcam and microphone are working or have a phone or tablet ready.

3a) If you want to use your webcam and microphone, simply click the link provided to you and you’ll be connected with one of their representatives to complete your verification.

Make sure that you have your government-issued ID ready. Also, they are only open from 8:00 to 24:00 CET.

3b) If you want to use your smartphone or tablet, select that option on the sidebar and you’ll be given instructions on how to complete the verification process. You will be required to download IDnow, which is available for iOS and Android. Afterwards, one of their staff members will be able to help you with the verification process. Make sure that you have your government-issued ID ready. Like with 3a, a staff member is only available from 8:00 to 24:00 CET.

4) After verification, go back to the site and select “Buy Bitcoin” from the menu. Here, you can either select Direct Buy or Bank Transfer. We suggest using the Direct Buy method as it only takes a maximum of 2 days for the transaction to be confirmed, depending on the payment option, while a bank transfer can take up to 5 days. With Direct Buy, you can either enter the amount you would like to spend or the amount of BTC you would like to buy. The other field will be automatically filled. Then, select your preferred payment method and hit confirm.

5) To transfer money into your account, go to this page on the Oshi website and hit on the Pay with Cubits button. Enter the amount of BTC you would like to move to your Oshi account. However, make sure that it doesn’t exceed the amount in your Cubits account. Happy gaming!

Kraken

1) Upon entering the site, you are immediately given the ability to sign-up. Just fill out the information and agree to the ToS and hit “Sign Up”.

2) Afterwards, you’ll be taken to a page where you’ll need to enter a bit more information about your location. Feel free to leave the “Master Key” and “PGP Public Key” fields blank. Your password needs to have a non-alphanumeric character such as the exclamation mark or the @-sign.

3) After this step, you should be getting an email regarding verifying your account as well as instructions on how to verify your account. After doing so, you should be able to see this after logging in. When you do, click on “Get Verified”.

You don’t have to worry about a lot of the information on the site if you don’t plan on trading on the exchange beyond acquiring BTC. You also might notice no mention of BTC on the page. This is because Kraken abbreviates Bitcoin as XBT. Don’t worry, they’re the same thing.

4) After clicking on it, you should be presented with a table showing what the different levels of verification give you. In order to deposit fiat (EUR, USD, GBP, etc.), you’ll need to reach Tier 2. To begin verification, scroll down and you should see this. Just fill out the information and click the “Get Verified” button when you’re done.

5) You should then be getting the option to go to Tier 2. Click on the button and you should be presented with this page where you’ll need to enter an address. Make sure that you enter an address that you have your bills sent to as it will be necessary if you wish to move up to Tier 3 or if they encounter some issues with verifying you. Also, note that you cannot change certain information that you entered in Tier 1, such as the country that you listed.

6) You’ll once again be given the option to move on to Tier 3. However, if you scroll up, you’ll notice that under “Verify Status” your verification is still marked as “Processing”. This is because someone at the company needs to manually verify the information that you entered.

7) In case they are not able to verify the information or notice a discrepancy, they’ll contact you and require you to get verified to Tier 3. Even if you don’t get this notice, we recommend getting to Tier 3 as it greatly increases your deposit and withdrawal limits.

To get to this level, you will need to be ready to upload a government-issued ID as well as a proof of residence. For those residing in Germany or Japan, or are depositing from an account in those countries and Austria, you will also need to take a photo with yourself holding the ID.

For US residents, you will also need to enter your Social Security Number. Please note that you cannot upload PDF documents as the system only accepts image files (JPEG, JPG, and PNG).

8) After this step, you will need to wait for the staff to manually verify your identity. This should only take up to about an hour, even at odd hours of the day. After getting the email confirming your verification, log back in and click on “Funding”

9) You will then be presented with this page where you can choose what currency you would like to add to your account.

Each currency has different instructions:

  • EUR via Fidor Bank AG (SEPA/Wire Transfer)
  • USD via PayCash bank transfer
  • GBP via PayCash bank transfer (SEPA/SWIFT)
  • JPY via domestic deposit

After selecting your currency, click the drop-down menu to see the options that you have and information regarding how to complete the deposit will appear on the page. Whichever method you choose, make sure that you include the reference code given in the instructions and not to go above your daily or monthly funding limits.

10) Once you have funds in your account, click on the “New Order” button after logging in and you should see this page. You can either enter the amount you would like to spend or the amount of BTC that you would like to buy. Keep in mind that BTC in Kraken is known as XBT.

11) Afterwards, click your username on the upper-right side of the screen and click on “Withdraw”.

12) Select “Bitcoin (XBT)” from the sidebar menu and “Bitcoin”. You can also select “BitGo Instant” which has the same instructions, but, while faster, costs more. Afterwards, you’ll want to click “Add address”.

13) On the same page, you’ll be given two fields to fill out. Under “Description”, you can name it anything you like, such as “Oshi Bitcoin Address”. Under “Bitcoin address” you should enter the address that you see on this page. Afterwards, enter the amount of BTC that you would like to deposit into your account while taking note of the ฿0.00050 fee required to send the funds. Once again, make sure that you do not withdraw more than your tier allows you. To be safe, copy and paste the wallet code to avoid any typos. (Also, make sure that you do not use the exact same address in the image below and instead use the one on your own account)

14) After a few minutes, you should be able to start playing on Oshi! It should take about 10 minutes or less to get to your account. If you would like a more accurate estimate, check out this page for the current median transaction confirmation time. Enjoy!
