April Updates – New Verification Level and Instant Buy

The post April Updates – New Verification Level and Instant Buy appeared first on Cryptocurrency exchange: buy/sell/trade bitcoin & altcoins | iCE3X.
We have some exciting developments in the April Updates for iCE3X. The latest upgrade introduces a new verification level. This allows you to withdraw a limited amount by verifying their phone number through SMS. You can try out the full iCE3X experience including withdrawals before fully committing your documentation to fulfil the KYC (Know Your Customer) regulations. We also introduce Instant Buy to allow you to get Crypto faster and easier than ever before.
Confirm Your Account with Just Your Phone Number
The April Update lets users have access to a verification level that doesn’t need you to send a copy of all your verification documents. You can achieve a level 1 account which will allow you to withdraw up to 0.014 BTC from your account just by verifying your phone number. Once you have made an iCE3X account, click on the accounts icon (the person icon) in the top menu as shown below:

On the accounts page, click on the verifications tab in the left menu.

Enter your mobile number in the area marked.
You should start with the country code which is +27 for South Africa. The number should look like “+27 [Your Phone Number]”. Click send.

You will be sent a 6 digit code by test, put this into the SMS code section and click submit. A phone number can only be confirmed by one account.

After this, you have reached level one and can now withdraw up to 0.014 BTC. You can upgrade to level 2 and be able to withdraw much more in the same verifications tab by clicking on “upgrade to the next level” and follow the instructions.

We also have a video which shows the whole process as well.

 
Instant Buy Lets You Get Crypto Easily
The April Upgrade also introduces the Instant Buy feature on iCE3X, allowing you to buy crypto faster than ever before.

To get to Instant Buy, click on Quick Buy in the top menu.

You will be lead to this page where you can instantly buy some of our suggested values or you can make your own instant buy option. The values are calculated using the current market value so you don’t need to guess a price and make your own order. We even give you some suggested amounts to buy as well.

Click on the drop down to change the currencies you will be buying and which fiat currency you will be buying with as well.

You can also choose either the amount of Fiat you want to spend or the amount of crypto you will want to buy and the other side will be calculated using the current market value for you.

Once you have clicked buy, it will lead to a confirmation dialogue. Click yes and an order will be made. Once this is matched and completed, you will have the crypto you bought without all the hassle. We also have a video showing the whole process as well.

And that’s it for the April Updates!

The Bitcoin Price has Rallied and Started to Rise Again, But Why?

The Bitcoin Price has Rallied and Started to Rise Again, But Why?

It has been a long time since the Bitcoin price skyrocketed and hope has been slowly seeping from the hearts of HODLers since. The price even dropped below $3400. Those were some dark times and people were even questioning if this was the end for all cryptocurrencies. Are the naysayers actually right about it? That there is no future in bitcoin, that it is a digital currency that you can neither touch or do anything with. Something outside our physical world that you own somehow (with your private keys).To be honest, it is similar to the existence of God Himself. No one has seen Him, no one has touched Him yet billions of us believe in His existence. For the HODLers out there, bitcoin is worth believing in. It looks like we were right. The prices have jumped significantly in the last few days and we will be looking into a possible reason why in this article. Let’s dive straight into it. 
The Rise of Cryptocurrency Prices
It’s not just bitcoin’s price, but as a whole, all cryptocurrencies saw spikes in their prices. There has been many speculations and rumours about what’s going on. But one of the biggest reasons for cryptocurrency price fluctuations is speculations. If an influencer says something about the crypto world, now that’s something that could change the prices.
Let me give an example, using the relationship between DogeCoin and Elon Musk. Many say it’s a joke, I am also one of these, but who knows the truth? After the 1st of April (April Fool’s day), there was a teaser from Tom Heats about their new CEO and that Elon Musk has been chosen. Not really expected, but Elon had a very positive response to that. See the Tweet below.

Dogecoin might be my fav cryptocurrency. It’s pretty cool.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 2, 2019

Right after that day 2nd of April 2019, the prices skyrocketed again.
See the image below for example with the bitcoin price chart:

There were a few followup Tweets by Elon Musk, which I believe helped a lot in holding the prices high, not just the bitcoin or Dogecoin prices, but all the market’s prices.

Dogecoin value may vary https://t.co/UWerAhPv63
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 2, 2019

The last nail in the coffin was Elon’s claim that he is actually the DogeCoin’s company CEO.

As you can see the world is ruled by people who are influencers. Pure power with a great number of followers. It has been like this for centuries, and it will continue. There is nothing constant in which you can invest and be sure that in time you’ll get double your investments in return. That’s why we call it “investing”. You are setting money in something with the great risk of lose all of them or getting wealthy with a bit of luck.
April Fool’s Day
Very slightly possible, but let’s mention it too. There were many people talking about how bitcoin price will hop-up on the 1st of April when it’s April Fool’s Day. Who knows, maybe this was the actual joke from DogeCoin and Elon Musk’s side. They wanted to have fun. That fun may have unintentionally helped us HODLers to seek hope again. Let’s start talking about the Moon and Lambos again.
Conclusion about the sweet and warm dreams if big prices
It doesn’t matter what happens, the true HODLers will always believe and trust in the future of the blockchain. What do you think, will there be even higher jumps in bitcoin prices? Will there be a serious influencer who will get into cryptocurrency? We at iCE3X believe!
