To verify your account, you will need to be 18 years of age, provide a US address, US phone number, and US social security number. Our payments processor requires an SSN to verify your identity. Your information is stored and secured directly with them, and no one on Alt has access to this information. Here is a link to their Terms of Service for more details on how your information is secure with them: https://www.dwolla.com/legal/tos/
After verifying your account, you will need to link a US Bank account to deposit funds and make transactions on the Exchange. This is the only way to fund your Alt account, and other forms of payments (PayPal, credit cards, etc.) are not accepted.
At this time, our Exchange and Vault are only available to customers with all of the above information. We plan to add additional support for international customers in the future and will make a public announcement when this is available. In the meantime, our Portfolio feature is available to use globally.
