Resend’ option allows you to request a new PIN code after a 1 minute interval, if you have not received one. Additionally, you may select the ’Didn't receive email?’ option to troubleshoot for possible reasons why the PIN code does not arrive at your email inbox.
Phone number information is optional when registering and may be used to tie your PrimeXBT account to your mobile number after we implement this feature. Additionally it will allow clients to utilize the telephone support feature (call out on request) as we plan to introduce it in the near future.
In order to sign into the account again once logged out, you can use your PrimeXBT account credentials (Email + password), or select the ’Continue with Google’ option, which allows you to authorise using your existing Google Account.
By selecting the 'Continue with Google' option, you will be redirected to the Google Account Sign in sub-page. Use your Google Account credentials to sign in:
Once completed, you will be automatically logged in to your PrimeXBT account.

b) Buying crypto option allows you to Buy cryptocurrencies using a bank card (fiat currencies) via our partners such as Coinify, Paxful(P2P), Xanpool etc., and have it transferred to your PrimeXBT wallet.

Each separate currency can be used only in Margin trading accounts, Strategies and Followings denominated in the SAME currency. For example, BTC can be used in a Margin trading account denominated only in BTC, while ETH can be used in a Margin trading account denominated only in ETH. If you wish to open a Margin trading account, start a Strategy or Following in a particular currency, make sure to deposit the same currency. Alternatively, using our in-wallet Currency Exchange feature allows you to exchange BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC and COV amongst each other, directly between your PrimeXBT account Wallets.
Once your deposit has been processed on the blockchain, it will be reflected in your Transfer history (click a corresponding Wallet on the Main page of your account to bring up Wallet info)
