How do I enable send/receive functionality?

River Financial Knowledge Base Logo

To enable bitcoin send/receive functionality, you must provide two forms of identification:

  • an image of your state issued Driver's License
  • an image of yourself holding both your License and a handwritten note

The image of your state issued Driver’s License must be unexpired and show your date of birth, citizenship or permanent residence, signature, and photograph. If your driver’s license is issued by a state not consistent with the state of your primary residence, we may ask for further documentation to verify your residency.
