Onboarding Process

10 / 10

It is really easy and fast to open an account on Rivalry. An email and password are required only and after the email confirmation the name, username, and date of birth info has to be added as well. Social media platforms are also available for account creation: Google, Facebook, Twitter, Steam, Twitch, VK.

Account Verification

The verification is not mandatory for account registration or deposit, but the financial functionality is limited as the deposit amount is capped at $100 while withdrawals are not available with an unverified account. 

 

The usual set of documents is required in order to complete the account verification process, while the timeframe is mentioned to be no longer than 10 minutes, but we think that delays can be expected.
