2. Entering your personal information that matches the details of your ID and current address proof
3. Verifying your email address
4. Uploading digital copies of your ID and proof of residence documents for account verification
Before you get started with opening an account on Gatecoin, make sure that you have digital copies of your ID and proof of residence documents for verification saved securely and ready to upload.
1. Register your email address and password
Enter your email address and set a strong password that is a minimum of 12 characters, which includes numbers, symbols, capital and lower-case letters.
You will then be shown your user ID. Please store this securely as it will be required to login and retrieve your account.
2. Enter your personal information and contact details
Make sure that the information entered is factually accurate and reflects the details displayed on your ID and current address proof documents.
3. Verify your email address
Please check your email inbox for a message with the subject "Welcome to Gatecoin" sent from gatecoin.com and click on the email verification link provided.
If you provided a wrong email address by mistake when creating an account, don't worry, you can still change your email at this stage and resend the verification email.
You can also add a referral code if you want to benefit from Gatecoin’s referral program.
Once your email has been verified, click continue.
4. Upload your documents for account verification
Your proof of identity should be a high-resolution scan or photo of a valid passport (issued within the last 10 years) or a government-issued ID card that displays your date of birth, the card's date of issuance and date of expiry. We do not accept driving licenses as proof of identity as these can be easily forged.
Your proof of residence should be a high-resolution scan or photo of a document dated within the last three months that displays your full name and current address. This can be a utility bill, bank statement, or letter from a government authority.
All uploaded document scans and photos should be high-resolution and less than 5MB in size.
Any low-resolution, altered or poor quality images will be rejected by our compliance team.
All uploaded documents are immediately encrypted by our system and stored securely.

If there are no issues with your ID and proof of residence documents then your account verification will be approved and you will receive an email confirmation.
You are now ready to trade on Gatecoin!
