The ID verification and Tier status of each user will be available in the Verification tab of the “Account settings” page, where up-to-date incoming trade and transaction volume will also be displayed. Incoming trade and transaction volume is calculated according to the account’s data on buy trades and received Bitcoin transactions from the past 12 months. The next Tier verification is required when incoming trade and transaction volume reaches the current Tier limit.
