Yes, you need to be verified to use our service. Identity verification is a legal requirement of all digital exchanges in Australia under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Amendment Act 2017.

The verification process is simple and all done online, it can typically be completed in a minute or two.

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, and store an absolute minimum of personal data on our servers. We employ expert third party ID verification services to maintain a high level of data security.

You'll see a confirmation usually within a few seconds of making your bitcoin payment. We process the payment after it confirms on the blockchain, on the same business day that the bitcoin transaction is done (though cut-off times must be taken into account - see the next question). We carry the burden of risk on any rate movements.

Payments to Bank Accounts are processed through the NPP (New Payments Platform), and will usually clear within minutes of your transaction being confirmed on the Blockchain.

Transactions which are not able to be processed through the NPP will be processed as a regular Bank transfer and will generally clear in 1-2 business days.

If we receive your BPAY payment before 5pm on a Bank Business Day the Biller will acknowledge the payment as having been made on that day. However, the funds may not be available in the Biller's account for up to 2 business days.

Our company is named in honour of Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious and pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. Nobody really knows for sure who he is, or what he is doing now.

But we like to imagine that when Satoshi has a bill to pay, he kicks back at the end of the day and pays it in his living room. Hence "Living Room of Satoshi"!
