This article will be a step by step guide through the screens to make it easier for users to complete their KYC for COSS.io. If you want to do FIAT trading, you would need to complete the COSS.io KYC first, before proceeding to do the ETANA KYC.
Not to worry, we will have a separate guide for ETANA coming up soon. You do NOT have to do both at the same time.
IF you do not want to do FIAT trading, you’ll be fine with just this guide alone.
On to the guide. This is going to be a screen by screen guide, to minimize any confusion. Instructions will be on the top, followed by the picture.
