Registration - Individual Client

Can I open an account in the Fiat24 mobile app?

Only individual clients can open Individual Accounts through the mobile app.

Corporate clients (with dedicated Business Account numbers that start with the digit eight) must be activated manually by our Client Service team. Please note that we only onboard companies who are the beneficial owners of all the assets deposited with Fiat24. We do not open accounts for companies intending to deposit client funds or operate accounts on behalf of their clients or other third parties.

Please email if you wish to open a Business Account.

Why do I need to KYC?

KYC (Know-Your-Customer or Know-Your-Client) allows us to identify you in order for us to fulfil our legal and regulatory requirements, for example anti-money laundering requirements.

What changes after registration?

Before registration, your NFT is set to Tourist status, which means you can only get a look and feel of the decentralized application, and change your account nickname. After successful registration, you can use our financial services services up to a limit of 100'000 CHF / 30 calendar days on a rolling basis.

What type of ID is accepted to verify my account?

You must have a Biometric Passport (aka ePassport). At the moment, we do NOT accept any national identity cards, residential permits or driver's licenses.

Why do I need to take a selfie?

In order to fulfil our legal and regulatory requirements, we need to perform an identity check on your before registering you as a standard client with full access to the Fiat24 services. This includes comparing your selfie to your photo ID to make sure you are the one opening the account.

Can a friend open an account for me?

No. We have facial recognition during the verification process to make sure you are the person holding the identity document. You will have to take a selfie during the process so that it can be matched to your identity document. To protect the account holder, we reject all applications from 3rd parties.

All personal data is encrypted and stored securely by Fiat24.

What do the statements in the checkboxes mean?
