Popular cryptocurrency exchange, Poloniex is sending out emails to its unverified users to verify their accounts through their verification portals. For this, you will need to visit your profile page and then follow the instructions given there. You will be asked to send them a verification photo + government issued photo ID or passport.
If you are unable to do this till 11th of June, 2018, your account will be frozen and you won’t be able to use your Poloniex account.
On the positive side, after getting verified, your daily withdrawal limits will be increased to 25000 dollars.
Here’s the email that is being sent to everyone.
We are requiring that all legacy Poloniex accounts become verified through the latest version of our verification portal. Our records indicate that you have a legacy account. Please visit your profile page and follow the instructions to complete this verification. During the process, you’ll be asked to provide a verification photo of yourself as well as a photo of a valid government-issued ID card or passport. When taking your verification photo, please follow these guidelines.
We appreciate your cooperation in this process. You will not have the ability to use your Poloniex account until your profile verification is complete, so please take action on this as soon as possible. Once we receive and verify your information, full account functionality will be restored, and your daily withdrawal limits will be increased to $25k USD equivalent.
You’ll have 14 days from the date this email was sent to verify your account information.
