Coinbase accounts-Hawaii

Although we strive to provide continuous access to Coinbase services in all states in the US, Coinbase must indefinitely suspend its business in Hawaii.

The Hawaii Division of Financial Institutions (DFI) has communicated regulatory policies which we believe will render continued Coinbase operations there impractical.

In particular, we understand that the Hawaii DFI will require licensure of entities which offer certain virtual currency services to Hawaii residents. Although Coinbase has no objection to this policy decision, we understand the Hawaii DFI has further determined that licensees who hold virtual currency on behalf of customers must maintain redundant fiat currency reserves in an amount equal to the aggregate face value of all digital currency funds held on behalf of customers. Although Coinbase securely maintains 100% of all customer funds on behalf of our customers, it is impractical, costly, and inefficient for us to establish a redundant reserve of fiat currency over and above customer digital currency secured on our platform.

We ask Hawaii customers to please:
  1. Remove any digital currency balance from your Coinbase Account. Please note that you may remove digital currency from your Coinbase Account by sending your digital currency to an alternate digital currency wallet.
  2. Remove all of your US Dollar balance from your Coinbase account by transferring to your bank account.
  3. Lastly, visit this page to close your Account.

We understand this suspension will inconvenience our Hawaii customers and we apologize that we cannot currently project if or when our services may be restored.

How to Verify Account in Coinbase


Why am I being asked to verify my identity?

To prevent fraud and to make any account-related changes, Coinbase will ask you to verify your identity from time-to-time. We also ask you to verify your identity to ensure no one but you changes your payment information.

As part of our commitment to remain the most trusted cryptocurrency platform, all Identification Documents must be verified through the Coinbase website or mobile app. We do not accept emailed copies of your identity documents for verification purposes.


What does Coinbase do with my information?

We collect necessary information to allow our customers to use our products and services. This primarily includes data collection that is mandated by law—such as when we must comply with anti money laundering laws, or to verify your identity and protect you from potential fraudulent activity. We may also collect your data to enable certain services, improve our products, and keep you notified of new developments (based on your preferences). We do not, and will not, sell your data to third parties without your consent.

Why am I unable to upload my ID?


Why isnt my document being accepted?

There are a few reasons why our verification provider may be unable to process your request. Here are a few tips to help complete this step.
  • Ensure that your document is valid. We are unable to accept an upload of an expired ID.
  • Ensure your identification document is in a well lit area without much glare.
  • Photograph the entire document, try to avoid cutting off any corners or sides.
  • If having trouble with the camera on a desktop or laptop computer, try installing our iOS or Android app on your cell phone. You can use the mobile app to complete the ID verification step using your phones camera. The Identity Verification section can be found under Settings in the app.
  • Trying to upload a US passport? At this time, we only accept US state-issued ID such as a Drivers License or Identification Card. We are unable to accept US passports due to the lack of indication of what state you reside in.
  • For customers outside of the US, we are unable to accept scanned or otherwise saved image files at this time. If you do not have a webcam on your computer, the mobile app can be used to complete this step.

Can I send a copy of my document by email instead?

For your security, do not to send us or anyone else a copy of your ID via email. We will not accept such as a means of completing the identity verification process. All uploads must be completed via our secure verification portal.
