CEX.IO Opens Telegram Login and Verification

London, England, August 28, 2018 — CEX.IO is one of the first cryptocurrency platforms to integrate Telegram Passport for verifying users via the popular Telegram messenger.

With more than 200 million monthly active users, Telegram has won the trust of the global community as a service with strong privacy and security standards.

According to the official announcement, Telegram Passport is a tool for logging in to third-party apps that require real-life identity verification. Just two weeks after its launch, Passport can already be used to sign up for many services, from established sharing economy services to blockchain startups. CEX.IO was named among the first projects to integrate Telegram Passport.

“To pass verification using the Telegram Passport service, the user should choose the verification via Telegram Passport option, and then they will be redirected to Telegram to fill in all the relevant fields and provide the necessary information. After the phone number and email address are confirmed, the user is redirected to the verification page. Soon we will add the possibility to use documents uploaded to Telegram Passport for verification on CEX.IO.” – Elaine Neal CEX.IO
