A: Follow these steps:
A: Follow these steps:
A: After creating your account, verifying your account will allow you to deposit funds and start trading.
To become verified:
A: Select the Funding tab and you'll be taken to an overview of your funding options and activity, You have the option of depositing fiat currency and/or digital assets/cryptocurrencies.
To deposit, simply click the "Deposit"-button for any of the assets and follow the instructions.
Deposits in fiat currencies
We support USD, GBP and EUR, and will add others.
Deposits in cryptocurrencies
If you’re funding your account with cryptocurrencies, select the one you’d like to deposit and generate an address for it. Afterwards, you can either scan the QR code or copy the address using the select button and input it wherever the source of the funds are located.
A: Before you can start buying and selling, you'll need to deposit funds into your FINAUX account.
Select a currency pair
First you’ll need to know what assets you would like to exchange, for example buying Bitcoin with your USD, or selling Ether (ETH) for euros. After you know which pairs you’ll be trading, you can select them from the drop down menu while viewing the “Trade” tab.
In a Buy order: you pay the quote currency, and receive the base currency.
In a Sell order: you sell the base currency, and receive quote currency.
Fill out order form
After selecting your trading pair, go to the “New Order” page and select the “Simple” form.
A market order is meant for immediate execution, as it will match with limit orders that are already available on our order books. Market orders will always incur a slightly higher fee known as a taker fee (the second percent beside your 30 day volume). With market orders you can only input the volume you would like to buy or sell and not the price.
Limit orders will execute at the price you’ve set or better, once the market reaches your limit price. They can be subject to maker or taker fees depending on when it executes. If a matching order already exists and it’s executed immediately, then taker fees will occur.
Submit your order
Once you’ve decided on if you’re looking for a market or limit order, you can select your choice with the buttons to the left of the ”Total” field.
After things look good you just need to press the large buy/sell button and you’ll be brought to an order confirmation screen for a chance to double check your order.
This screen can be avoided if the “Skip order confirmations” box is checked.
Wait for order execution
If a market order is selected, the trade will happen instantly and your balance will change. Funds can be withdrawn or used to trade again right away. You can view successfully executed (closed) market orders on the "Orders" tab.
Limit orders may not be filled right away but you can view their status in the "Orders" tab. In the below example, the XBT/EUR price would have to fall to 25 for the limit buy order to be executed.
A: These guidelines are designed to help you create a secure username for your FINAUX account. The only purpose of the username is for you to login to your FINAUX account in a way that is hard to guess for others. We do not allow login via email because by their nature email addresses are shared with others and thus not private.
Be careful when you create it. DO NOT include any personal information and never share it within anyone.
A: These guidelines are designed to help you create a secure password for your FINAUX account.
If you do not want to use a password manager:
A: After signing up for an account, your account has to be verified before you can use funding methods or start trading. Laws and regulations require that we verify your account by asking who you are and where you live. FINAUX takes every measure to prevent fraud and be fully compliant with KYC and AML regulations for trading of digital assets.
A: All information and documents you submit for account verification are reviewed through our automated or manual verification methods. Depending on which method can be used to verify your details, account verification times can vary. If we experience a heavy influx of new users, however, processing times for verification could slow down considerably. If you experience a delay, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your application. We'll contact you if we need anything further from you, so monitor the email associated with your FINAUX account.
A: The following documents are required:
(1) Valid Government Issued ID Document
Valid documents include:
Other valid government-issued ID may be accepted if it has your full legal name, photo, date of birth, and issue and expiry dates all on the front of your ID.
Firearm licenses are not accepted.
Please make sure that your ID photos/scan meet the image requirements:
(2) Proof of Residence Document
Proof of residence documents must contain your name, address, and be dated less than 3 months ago from the date of submission.
Valid documents include, but are not limited to:
We do NOT accept change-of-address letters. For documents in languages that use non-Latin characters (such as Russian, Chinese, Thai, Hebrew, etc.), a notarized translation of your proof of residence document will greatly speed up processing time.
To upload all the required documents to your FINAUX account:
A: Once you have submitted your personal information for verification, you will not be able to manually change these details. You can, however, use the individual procedures linked to below if you require any of the submitted information to be updated or adjusted:
If you made a mistake when entering your name, or if you legally changed your name open a support ticket to request a change.
Date of birth change:
If you made a mistake when entering your date of birth open a support ticket to request a change. After we respond to your ticket, you may need to provide a copy of a valid ID document.
Resident address change:
If you are traveling or have moved, you can continue to deposit and withdraw successfully without making changes to your registered address. To change your address:
Sign into your account and fill in the following:
Address line 1:
Address line 2:
3. After we respond to your ticket, you can attach two valid proof of residence documents for the new address.
Email address change:
Before changing your email address, please note that:
1. The new email address cannot be associated with any other FINAUX account (active, unconfirmed, or closed).
2. We highly recommend using a free public domain email that you will always have access to. If you use self-hosted domains or email addresses included with services (such as your ISP or university email), the likelihood of losing access to the email address is significantly higher.
To change your email:
(3) Confirm the change.
You will receive two email messages:
You must enter both codes on the Settings page of your FINAUX account.
1. Never allow anyone create or manage an account on your behalf.
2. Choose a Username that is hard to guess and not used on any other website. Never share your username with anyone.
3. Create a Password that is long (at least 15 characters) and that is not used on any other website.
4. Set up 2FA. This is the most important security feature.
NB: A poorly stored 2FA backup can be counter-productive and result in your 2FA being compromised. If you are worried about losing your Login 2FA, set up a Master Key instead (see below).
Warning: authenticator apps that use cloud storage: If their cloud storage is hacked, it can compromise your Login 2FA.
5. Set up a Master Key to have additional protection from password resets (in case your email is compromised) and as a backup for your Login 2FA.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the Master Key is set up using a different method from your Login 2FA.
6. Watch out for phishing scams Even Login 2FA can't protect your account if you enter it on a phishing website or share it with a scammer.
7. Watch out for third-party mobile apps using FINAUX name or asking for your FINAUX credentials are a form of phishing.
8. Sharing your API private key or QR code is the same as sharing your account password!
If the email account registered to your FINAUX account is compromised, it can be used to request your username, reset your password, and approve withdrawals.
1. Create a Password, but make the email password different to your FINAUX login password.
2. Set up Login 2FA just as you would for your FINAUX account, and don't use the SMS option if your email provider offers it.
3. Don’t put your phone number in your email account.
4. Check your settings and activity.
A compromised internet connection can steal your login details and direct you to phishing sites. Here are some ways you can secure your internet connection:
1. Router password. Change the default password on your home internet router. Keeping the default password will allow any stranger from the internet to gain control over your router. To prevent brute force attacks, use a long phrase (rather than a single word) along with numbers and symbols.
2. WiFi password. Make sure your WiFi network is password protected. This is separate from the router password.
3. Avoid public WiFi. Use your mobile data plan instead. If you have to use public WiFi, make sure to have a reputable VPN (avoid free VPNs).
A compromised device can log everything you type into it, and mobile devices are the most common way to use 2FA.
1. Device password. Create a secure passphrase and use fingerprint login if possible. Avoid easy to guess pins and login patterns.
2. Don't share your device. Don't allow friends and family to share access and passwords to your devices, especially if you use those devices for your 2FA.
3. Never give remote access. Some customer service teams will request remote access to your computer to help troubleshoot technical issues, but this is very dangerous and it is also the favourite technique of scammers. So always say 'No' to applications such as RemotePC, TeamViewer, and GoToMyPC. FINAUX Support will never ask you to install remote access software!
4. Avoid public devices. Only login from your personal devices.
5. Avoid work devices for personal accounts. They are able to monitor and record your activity.
Once you've finished verifying and setting up your Kraken account, you can add even more protections in case your login is compromised in any way.
1. Set up Two Factor Authentication (2FA) for withdrawals and trading. However, the Global Settings Lock must be enabled in order for these 2FAs to be effective.
2. Enable the Global Settings Lock (GSL) to prevent changes to your account settings and withdrawal addresses — even if an attacker gains access to your account.
Important: If you want the option to immediately turn off the GSL at any time, you'll need to setup the Master Key before enabling the GSL. FINAUX Support cannot speed up GSL removal.
A: There are two types of account history: ledger and trades
Ledger history focuses on changes to account balances. It answers questions like:
Working with Ledger history:
Trades history focuses on the execution details of non-margin and margin trades (the matching of sell orders with buy orders). It answers questions like:
Note: Trades history only shows executed or partially executed orders. It does not show cancelled/untouched orders.
A: Before you can buy or trade cryptocurrencies on the FINAUX platform, you'll need to deposit funds into your FINAUX account.
Deposit fees are what it costs FINAUX to accept your deposit and do not include your bank's charges (if any) for sending a transfer. Deposit limits will depend on your verification level.
All options involve some form of bank or wire transfer. Names must match on your bank account and FINAUX account, and as a result we cannot accept deposits from some third-party payment processors.
Some geographic limitations may apply. SWIFT is the most common form of international wire transfers.
Processing times are estimates only and are outside of FINAUX's control. Please be mindful of banking holidays.
A: To help your deposit go smoothly, please check the following before sending any funds:
A: For security reasons, we require a digital asset / cryptocurrency deposit to receive a number of confirmations on its blockchain before the funds can be credited to your account.
When a transaction is broadcasted to the network, it has to wait to be included in a block by the miners. Once a transaction has been included in a mined block, the transaction has received 1 confirmation. With each subsequent block, the number of confirmations increases for the transaction.
To avoid the risks of double spending funds aren’t credited until a certain number of confirmations have taken place (as listed below).
The more confirmations received, the more permanent / irreversible the transaction is.
Each block is found at a different rate depending on the blockchain.
For example, on the Bitcoin blockchain, a block is mined on average every 10 minutes, and FINAUX only credits Bitcoin deposits to a client’s account after 6 confirmations, which takes approximately 60 minutes.
However, sometimes it can take Bitcoin miners 30 or even 60 minutes to mine a single block (1 confirmation). This is outside of FINAUX's control.
A: Before being able to deposit any digital assets or cryptocurrencies, your account must first be verified.
A: Cryptocurrency, also known as digital assets, trading is the buying, selling or holding of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) amongst others, with the aim of generating a profit from short, medium or long term fluctuations in their prices. Trading on the FINAUX platform can be performed by exchanging fiat currency such as USD, EUR, and GBP for cryptocurrency, or one cryptocurrency for another for example Bitcoin (BTX) for Ethereum (ETH).
A "Spot Exchange" is exchanging one currency you own for another.
A "Margin Trade" involves leveraging the collateral in your account in order to open a position to short or long a currency against another currency in hopes of profiting from short-term price swings.
1. Spot exchange
While utilizing FINAUX as a "spot exchange", you must have adequate balances in one currency to exchange for another. For example, depositing EUR in order to exchange for BTC on the BTC/EUR pair.
After executing a spot exchange between currencies the balances are available to be exchanged again or withdrawn. When using the Intermediate or Advanced order form, if you select "None" for leverage, then you are spot exchanging between currencies and must have adequate balances in one of the pairs. For most spot exchange orders, the Simple order form is sufficient.
2. Margin trading
With margin trading, you do not need to "own" or have possession of the underlying asset to enter a contract. We provide the funding for you to trade against other assets, at a leverage ratio of up to 5:1.
When using margin you are only required to hold collateral currencies and are able to trade any of the margin pairs even if you do not hold the currency on that pair. This is possible because when trading with leverage, FINAUX provides the necessary funds for the entire value of a trade. Once a position is open, the amount of funds used as collateral are not available for trading or withdrawal until the position is closed. Margin trading does not result in an exchange of currency in your account.
The funds required to open the position also do not appear in your account, Margin trades appear as a "position". All profit or loss from the position is unrealized until you close the position, at which point adjustments to your balances will be made to account for the profit or loss.
While it's possible to go "long" without leverage, trading "short" is only possible with leverage, which means it's only possible on margin pairs.
When using the order forms, if you select a level of leverage (2, 3, 4, 5) then you are opening a margin position with FINAUX’s funds. Leverage can only be selected from the Intermediate and Advanced order forms.

7. Orders and Service Fees
Upon placing an instruction to effect a trade using the Services (an “Order”), your Account will be updated to reflect the open Order and your Order will be included in FINAUX’s order book for matching with Orders from other Users. If all or a portion of your Order is matched with another User, the Services will execute an exchange (a “Trade”). Upon execution of a Trade, your Account will be updated to reflect that the Order has either been closed due to having been fully executed, or updated to reflect any partial fulfilment of the Order. Orders will remain open until fully executed or cancelled in accordance with subsection (b) below. For purposes of effectuating a Trade, you authorize FINAUX to take temporary control of the Digital Currency that you are disposing of in the Trade.
You may only cancel an order initiated via the Services if such cancellation occurs before your Order has been matched with an Order from another user. Once your Order has been matched with an Order from another user, you may not change, withdraw, or cancel your authorization for FINAUX to complete such Order. If any order has been partially matched, you may cancel the unmatched portion of the Order unless and until the unmatched portion has been matched. FINAUX reserves the right to refuse any cancellation request associated with an Order after you have submitted such Order.

You agree to pay FINAUX the fees set forth, which may be updated from time to time in FINAUX’s sole discretion. Any such updated fees will apply prospectively to any trades or other transactions that take place following the effective date of such updated fees. You authorize FINAUX to remove any amounts from your Account for any applicable fees owed by you under these Terms.
8. Margin Trading and Futures
Margin trading and Futures are highly risky. As a margin or futures trader, you acknowledge and agree that you shall access and use the margin or futures trading and borrowing service at your own risks:
i. Trading markets are extremely volatile and shift quickly in terms of liquidity, market depth, and trading dynamics. The use of leverage can work against you as well as for you and can lead to large losses as well as gains.
ii. You are not eligible for receiving forked coins split from any blockchain asset in your margin or futures account, even if you have not engaged in any margin, futures trading or borrowing at all.
iii. The loan carries risks and the value of your blockchain assets may drop. If the value of your assets drops below a certain level, you are responsible for responding to this market circumstance.
iv. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, there is insufficient liquidity in the market or due to technical issues on FINAUX.
v. Placing contingent orders will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.
vi. There is no guaranteed measure against losses on margin or futures trading. As a borrower, you may sustain a total loss beyond what you have deposited to your margin or futures account.
b. To enter into margin or futures trading:
i. You represent and warrant that you are not either from the US, nor on any trade or economic sanctions lists, such as designated as a “Specially Designated National” by OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department).
ii. You should fully understand the risks associated with the margin or futures trading and lending and solely responsible and liable for any and all trading and non-trading activity on your FINAUX account. Do not enter into a transaction or invest in funds that are above your financial abilities;
iii. You are solely responsible and liable for knowing the true status of any position, even if presented incorrectly by FINAUX at any time;
iv. You agree to maintain in your FINAUX margin or futures account a sufficient amount of blockchain assets required by FINAUX for users to engage in margin or futures trading and return your loan in full timely. Failure to maintain a sufficient amount of assets or fail to return outstanding loan duly can result in the forced-liquidation of assets in your margin or futures account;
v. FINAUX cannot guarantee to stop losses even with the ability to force-liquidate any of your positions. If, after your positions are liquidated, your assets are insufficient to cover the outstanding loan, you are still responsible for any additional assets shortfall;
vi. FINAUX may, in its sole discretion, perform measures to mitigate potential losses to you on your behalf, including, but not limited to, transferring balances from your margin or futures to your exchange account and/or from your exchange to your margin or futures account;
vii. During FINAUX system maintenance, you agree that you are solely responsible and liable for managing your margin or futures account under risk, including but not limited to, keep or close your position and repay your loan.
viii. You agree that you conduct all trading, margin trading, futures trading and/or borrowing on your own account and claim full responsibility for your activities. FINAUX does not take any responsibility for any loss or damage incurred as a result of your use of any services or your failure to understand the risks involved associated with assets use generally or your use of our services.
ix. You are aware that on liquidation, all open orders are immediately cancelled. you may lose all your positions and all the funds in your futures account. A fee of up to 0.5% of the NOMINAL position value will be charged. FINAUX takes every possible step to avoid counterparty liquidation to minimize the potential impact of any counterparty liquidation when it does occur. Unfortunately, due to the volatility in the Crypto markets, and the high leverage offered to clients, it is not possible to fully avoid this possibility. In order to provide the best possible client experience, FINAUX are striving to keep counterparty liquidations to an absolute minimum.
