The Verse token sale is fast approaching. Ahead of the token sale, we are opening up the whitelist so that you can be ready to participate as soon as the token sale is live.

The whitelisting process consists of two actions: creating an account and verification (KYC).

Creating your account is as straightforward as it sounds, but KYC might be unfamiliar to some. KYC stands for “Know Your Customer.” It is a standardized process that companies use to verify the identity of customers. We are using KYC to verify the eligibility of people who wish to participate in the token sale, since there are restricted jurisdictions.

Before starting, we suggest using a device with a working camera so that you can preform the ID verification near the end of the KYC process.

Below we will look at how to set up your account and do the KYC.

  1. Navigate to www.getverse.com. Click on the blue button near the top of the page that says, “Sign in to Verse.”

2. You have three options: Apple, Google, and via email. We are going to use email. If you sign up with Apple or Google, skip to step 6.

3. You’ll be asked to check your email. Look for a new email with the subject, “Your account creation request for Bitcoin.com.”

4. Open the email and click the blue “continue” button.

5. It’ll take you back to www.getverse.com and after a brief delay, it will change to this:

Most people will be buying as an individual, but if you are buying as a business please click the “a business” radio button. To begin the KYC process press the blue button, “Begin verification.”

6. Start the verification process by pressing “Continue on this device,” or switch to your mobile phone by using the QR code.

7. Before entering your information, you first must agree to have your personal data processed by checking the “I agree...” box and clicking the “Next” button. After that, enter your information as it appears on the ID document you will use in the next step.

8. In this step, you will provide your ID document. Select the country and the type of document. Follow the instructions on how to take clear pictures of your ID. When you are ready, press “Next.” You can either take a picture of your ID with your device’s camera, or upload an image.

9. Next, you’ll need to provide proof of your address. Pay attention to documents that are acceptable:

10. The last thing you will do is go through the liveness-detection check. All you have to do is turn your head in front of the camera. It works best if you move slowly with smaller movements. If you move your head too much and too fast it might ask you to do it again.

11. You will be asked to review the information you have provided. If everything is ok, click the “Next” button.

The next screen let’s you know that your data is being checked. Depending on network conditions, you might have to wait upwards of 20 minutes.
