Detailed Info


ChangeNOW is a non-custodial crypto-to-crypto exchange where you can trade a large number of coins quickly, conveniently, registration-free, and without any limits. Although it normally does not require KYC it could be that one of your transactions is marked as suspicious and then they will require you a KYC procedure. The suspicious transaction detection system is not public so we can't know what may trigger this. You can get a refund to your address if you don't want to provide your information (without KYC).


This is a trusted exchange. It has been tested by KYCNOT.ME or it has a long-time good reputation.

KYC Level: 2

The exchange may request KYC. Although KYC is not mandatory, the exchange reserves the right to require KYC for a certain user at a certain moment and may block funds. May be that a transaction is detected as suspicious or any other reason.

KYC Check

The automated KYCNOT.ME check has failed for this exchange. The exchange may require KYC for some cases or ToS may have changed since the listing and may need review.


ChangeNOW’s AML/KYC procedure is supported by an automated risk prevention system. If a transaction is marked suspicious by this system, the exchange is put on hold and the customer in question is then asked to confirm their identity. There is a certain set of criteria that the system employs; however, they can’t be made public, otherwise there will be people who will try to abuse those criteria in order to cheat the algorithm. This system has proven to be very useful against money launderers and scammers, since the KYC process allows us to tell an honest customer apart from a scammer very quickly and without any trouble.

ChangeNOW is partnered with a KYC provider called SumSub. In order to get your identity verified, you will be offered to follow SumSub’s link (it will be under the Verify button) and complete the verification through a comfortable and smooth UI. You will have 3 days to complete the verification procedure, and if you don’t want to pass KYC, you can refuse (in that case, please shoot a message to [email protected]) and receive a refund.

In case a client submits a false set of documents, the KYC/AML procedure is considered failed and the deposited funds are then refunded to the address (or addresses) the deposit was made from, subtracting the network fees, within 24 hours. Then, ChangeNOW reserves the right to blacklist this address (or addresses), thus rendering it (or them) non-eligible for making deposits on the service.

Please bear in mind that ChangeNOW reserves the right to submit all the received materials to legal authorities (Interpol, Europol, and others) in case a corresponding request is received. You can read the official ChangeNOW's Rules of Anti-Money Laundering and Combating The Financing Terrorism compliance control here.

In order to purchase crypto with USD or EUR, you will need to enter your email address. It is a necessary step for user identification required by our third-party partner, Simplex. To comply with Simplex's identification procedure, we recommend to use the same email address together with a debit/credit card’s information for each transaction.

All the documents that you might provide during ChangeNOW's KYC/AML procedures are encrypted and stored in specialized secure storage as long as required by law. We guarantee that they won't be sold to or shared with any kind of third party, excluding potential law enforcement requests.
