Bybit exchange has announced that starting from 8 May 2023, identity verification of at least level one (Lv.1) will be mandatory for all its products and services.

New trading activities will be restricted until users complete the identity verification process. Once verified, users can continue using Bybit’s products and services.

Bybit has also provided daily withdrawal limits for each KYC level, which will be updated every day at 12 AM UTC. There will be no monthly withdrawal limit for users who have completed identity verification Lv.1 or Lv.2.
