How fast will my funds be available?

The time it will take for the funds you transfer into and out of your account to become available will vary depending on network congestion and the amount of confirmations required to complete a transaction.

If transferring fiat currency to place an OTC trade, transfer times vary depending on the payment method selected.

Are there any transfer limits?

Before you can withdraw any funds from your account, you’ll need to achieve a higher verification level by providing your name, birth date and a trading password. This takes you to verification level one and a 24-hour withdrawal limit of 2 BTC.

By then providing your country of residence, address and mobile number, you can access a higher withdrawal limit.

Bit-Z claims to use bank-level SSL technology to ensure the security of transactions. You can also establish a trading password on your account. This code must be different than your login password and will need to be entered to confirm each trade.
