  1. After logging into your account, click on your username at the top right corner and then Settings.

2. Select Trading Modes from the top and then click on SWITCH TO FIAT.

3. You should then see a message at the bottom left confirming that the switch was successful.

4. Your Regular account will now say that you have a FIAT CURRENCY ACCOUNT linked. NB!: You will still have an option to switch back to ETH, but ONLY if you have not made a deposit from the available payment providers.

5. In order to make a deposit with available FIAT payment providers, make sure you have your Regular account selected from the top right side of the page and then click on Balance. You will then see available payment providers for your region.

6. Once you select the desired payment provider you will be able to start filling in the necessary information. The finalization of the deposit depends on the payment provider.

7. If you do not see any payment providers, it means that currently there are no payment providers available in your region at the moment and you can use the Switch to ETH option, outlined in point 4. of this guide, to switch back to your previous deposit method.

Its important to remember that you can still keep on using the previously available deposit methods (ETH deposit from registered ETH address and Uphold) and our completely decentralized Wallet trading on the platform without any issue whatsoever.

So to summarize,

  • Fiat withdrawal/deposits methods are now available on
  • Current regions covered: Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Latin America and Russian Federation with new regions coming up soon.
  • Switch from ETH/UPHOLD to Fiat currency account may happen at any time but from Fiat back to ETH/UPHOLD only if a deposit/withdrawal has not taken place.

Happy trading!
