In the competition for derivative trading products, if Binance has Binance Futures, Huobi has Huobi DM, etc. KuCoin also has their trump card, the KuMEX derivatives exchange.

In this article, I will introduce to you about KuMEX.

KuMEX (or KuCoin Mercantile Exchange) is an exchange dedicated to providing derivative products related to cryptocurrency.

Their goal is to provide a safe and professional Crypto contract trading platform for users.

Some information about KuMEX

Market transactions of the exchange fully meet the needs of people today, such as:

  • Derived products: Perpetual and Delivery.
  • Recharge coins without fees.
  • Currently the exchange supports Vietnamese, making it easier for you to use transactions.
  • KuMEX has an API portal to help you easily link your account with applications, portfolios or trading bots.
  • Since being put into operation up to now, the exchange has not had any serious errors such as lag, slow, hacked, etc.
  • KuMEX Exchange has its coin of KuCoin Shares Token (KCS). KCS is also a KuCoin token. Maybe in the future this is a token of potential development.
  • Provide full API Key for those who want to use 3rd party tool to trade.
  • There are not many coins on the exchange. Currently, KuMEX only allows trading in BTC.
  • Being a new exchange, 24h transaction volume is still low, so it is difficult to meet all the transaction needs. Statistics on Coinmarketcap also do not have much data.

Click on "Submit."

So you have successfully registered account on KuMEX exchange.

However, I recommend that you perform KYC verification in the next step for better account security.

Step 2: Verify your identity KYC

From your account, you choose "KYC Verification" as shown below.

KuMEX exchange will give you 2 options:

  • First is to verify as an individual.
  • Second is to verify as an institution.

Here I choose the individual.

Verification requires 3 steps as follows:

B1: Please fill in the required information as below.

  • Country: Choose Vietnam
  • First Name: Enter your first name
  • Last Name: Enter your last name
  • Middle Name: Middle name (can be omitted)
  • Date of Birth: Enter the date of birth

  • Expiration Date: Enter the information of the expiration date of ID card

Next click "Next".

B2: You need to verify your identity by uploading the relevant documents.

Here, I choose ID card. You should prepare 3 photos in advance, including:

  • Photo in front of ID card
  • Photo on the back of ID card
  • And the portrait photo holds the paper that shows the month / day / year of KYC registration.

You choose "Choose file" to upload the pictures.

Here I marked from number 1 to number 3 for you to easily follow.

[1] Up front of ID card

[2] Upside down ID card

[3] Upload a portrait of yourself holding the writing paper “TUBMML month / day / year” (The time when you conduct KYC) and Signature.

Please note that all these images must be in JPG or PNG format and the maximum size for a photo is 4MB. Finally click on Next.

B3: Enter the contact information as follows

Note: You should enter the information on the ID that you have chosen for KYC. Here I use ID.

Next click "Next".

Finally, choose confirm and click "Submit". And wait for KuMEX to confirm the information.

Step 3: Activate 2-step 2FA security

This is a step to help you increase the security of your account on the exchange. I always advise you to activate 2FA.

Click the Account button >> Security Setting >> Setting (Google Verification).

Next, click Send Code. Check your email and enter the code from the email into the box. Click "Next".

Use the Google Authenticator or Authy app to scan the code. Also, you should save a 16-character string for backup.

In addition, you can choose a security option by SMS. However, this way often takes time to wait for the message to arrive, or it is complicated when changing the sim.

To be able to deposit and trade on KuMEX, you need to enable trading security.

In the web interface, click the Account icon button >> Security Setting >> Setting (section Trading Password).

Next, click Send Code. Check your email and enter the code from the email into the box. Click "Next".

Finally enter the 6-digit trading password and confirm.

Step 5: Transfer money to KuMEX

Currently, KuMEX only allows BTC transactions. Therefore, you can only transfer BTC to the exchange.

From the exchange's website, select "Asset" and confirm the terms of the exchange as shown below.

Next click on "Deposit". The next thing you need to do is to add Bitcoin to the wallet address displayed.

In addition, because KuCoin & KuMEX are directly linked to each other, you can also transfer Funds directly between these two exchanges to trade.

Step 6: Buy and sell Bitcoin & Altcoin on KuMEX

At the time of writing, the exchange is for BTC trading only.

The trading pairs below are in fact BTC trading indices. And when closing an order, the amount of funds increased or decreased is converted into BTC.

In the near future, it is hoped that KuMEX will soon support trading in more new currencies.

Step 7: Withdraw money from KuMEX

This withdrawal step is almost similar to the deposit in Step 5. But instead of "Deposit", you choose "Withdraw".

Then, you enter your wallet address in the "Address" box. Enter the amount to withdraw in the "Amount" box.

Finally, choose "Withdraw".

Note: If you want to withdraw money back to KuCoin, just select Transfer to transfer BTC back.
