Junk trying to lock you into their exchange under the illusion of using respective cryptocurrencies. Don't be fooled, they want to hold your crypto while you don't actually own your funds and charge you fees where YOU DO NOT ACTUALLY CONTROL your private keys. If you have a brain DO NOT USE THIS. USE AN ACTUAL WALLET.

One of the worst apps in terms of logics. My first account got banned without any notification or explanation before it got verified using Quick Verification. For the 2nd account I chose to go with in-person verification. A person came, I showed my ID, he said all was fine and left. Then I received an email from bitFlyer telling me that in-person verification wasn't valid for some reason. They told me to try Quick Verification again which isn't working anymore in my device. You guys had one job

Just an awful app with really awful customer service. I've followed all the instructions and uploaded my identification multiple times, and it won't register. I also inputted all data and they remove it and ask me to type in again. The customer service aren't helpful in solving this problem and try to avoid it. Go to other apps out there. MUCH more reliable and quick service.
