These limits seem pretty reasonable considering the amounts of money involved. I'll probably never even approach Level 1 myself.

But I do have a question. You state "public shared IP" causing Level 1 identity check. But it's very common for people to have dynamic IPs for their home service. Mine changes roughly every day pretty consistently. But I do have a web server for my business with a Fixed IP that never changes. So in this case I'd be better to use a secure proxy on that server to access MtGox as it would keep my IP consistent and the same. Do you actually capture user IPs that carefully or is a typical user going to be fine accessing from within the same IP block typical of a service provider? IP tracking seems frought with difficulties. I could see checking IPs against known bad lists and maybe Tor nodes as a more useful form of monitoring.


In your case you are safe, however if more than one account is accessed from the same IP this will mostly trigger an AML verification.
Ah, I get it. That's good to know.  So don't try to bypass limits by having lots of accounts.

2. Verified Status (Level 1)
Copy of a Valid ID and Proof of residence (Utility bill...)
Do I understand correctly that "verified" status does not require an apostille?

The original post in this thread made it seem like the new requirements apply also for "verified", which I think is what most of the negative reaction came from.

For the kind of company that requires "trusted" status, the trouble of getting an apostille is trivial.

You are correct, the Level 1 does not required an apostille. Our first announcement was actually more targeted for Level 2, sorry for the confusion
By the way, I think the clarifications you have made throughout this thread are important, and should be visible in a more prominent location, such as the OP. Not everyone is going to wade through several pages of discussion.

This means MtGox is not suitable for small amounts or casual users at all.


The transactions for smaller amounts will migrate to one of the many fixed-rate exchanges which is already starting.
