Once customers reach a high trading volume on our platform, we ask for a “Proof of Residence”, hereafter PoR. Although this measure has been taken to avoid fraud, we think it is important to note that requesting a PoW does not mean that we see you as, for example, a fraudster. We appreciate you as a loyal customer, but we have been given a joint responsibility to keep the crypto ecosystem safe through laws and regulations.


A PoR can for instance be requested once a total volume (buy + sell) has reached over €50.000,-. As a rule of thumb: The larger the transactions and risks, the more likely the chance that we will request for a PoR. This verification can also be requested if your nationality differs from the nationality of the used bank account.

SATOS can always ask for a proof of residence regardless of the situation. This way we do not only protect ourselves, but also our customers and the general opinion regarding cryptocurrencies as well.

What do I have to hand in?

A PoR is an official document that states your current name and address. A letter from the government or bank sent to your current address are official documents, for instance. Your monthly newsletter from Vogue is not considered as an official document.

Please note the following when uploading your proof of residence:

  • Always try to take a photo of a hard copy (invoice or letter received by post);

  • Document must not be older than 3 months (after last order);

  • Your full name and address are shown on the document;

  • All corners of the document must be clearly visible;

  • The entire document must be legible.

We accept various documents as proof of registration, below we have listed some examples:

  • Photo of recent utility bill (gas, water, electricity);

  • Photo of bank statement or letter from bank;

  • Photo of bill or agreement of rent or mortgage;

  • Photo of landline phone bill, cable TV;

  • Photo of letter from the tax authorities.
