Considering KuCoin didn't even exist 6 months ago, it's amazing how far they've come so fast. Much like Binance, KuCoin runs regular promotions for new coin listings and giveaways to grow their user base and it's working. Today, they're one of the top 20 exchanges by 24-hour volume. The user experience could be improved, but overall buying and selling was straight-forward. Since users can only buy and sell in crypto, KuCoin might not be right for every Bitcoin Noob but I'm impressed with how much the experienced KuCoin team has accomplished so far.
The overall design of the exchange feels modern and is easy to use. However, some of the submenus are buried on individual pages, which can make finding what you’re looking for a little difficult. It did take some time to get used to where things are located.

Advanced – Requires KYC identity verification. I could not find any documentation explaining why someone would need to get advanced verification or what sort of additional trading amounts it might enable.
Yes – via Google Authenticator
