YieldNodes: A Step-by-Step Guide to Set Up Your Account
Cryptocurrency is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing sectors of the coming financial revolution. Bitcoin was launched in January 2009 and altered the way we see the future of money and how we exchange goods and services.
After more than 12 years since Bitcoin’s launch, one thing has slowed its adoption by billions of people: ease of access. Despite its ground-breaking innovation, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have struggled to provide efficient and easy on-ramps for the masses.
Enter YieldNodes. A secure, simple, easy-to-use cryptocurrency platform featuring a large team of forward-facing professionals. YieldNodes allows users to finally participate in the revolutionary blockchain technology without requiring individuals to dive deep into the technical and tedious minutia of crypto wallets, exchanges, and private keys.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk through the entire process of signing up for your YieldNodes account. By the end of this guide, you will be ready to make your first deposit into the YieldNodes platform and begin your journey in cryptocurrency.
Step 1. Go to the YieldNodes website: https://www.yieldnodes.com/
Once you have arrived at the YieldNodes website, feel free to look around. Explore the information, the team pages, including each team members’ LinkedIn accounts, as well as real and verified testimonials from early users and beta testers.
YieldNodes has several revenue-generating avenues. One of their most profitable is the masternode sector. Playfully called ‘masternoding,’ nodes are important for the procession of transactions and maintaining an ecosystem's integrity. Masternodes perform vital tasks on a network, and in return, they receive rewards that contribute to the returns YieldNodes users see each month.
Step 2. Now it is time to sign up
After exploring what the website has to offer, it is time to sign up. Partway down the YieldNodes homepage, you will see the information in the screenshot above. An easy access point to begin your YieldNodes journey.
Step 3. Input your information and begin the sign up process
To begin the process, enter your first and last name, email address, phone number, and a secure password. In the example above, we will follow the very uncommonly named ‘John Doe’ as he signs up for YieldNodes.
The most important part of this process is your password. Security is vital to your experience with the platform. The team takes it very seriously. We recommend using a ‘strong password generator’ or come up with one on your own and make sure you record your password somewhere safe.
Also, take the time to read through the Terms and Conditions. When you are finished, check the box and click ‘Sign Up.’
Step 4. Welcome to the YieldNodes Dashboard
It might be a little overwhelming at first, but we have you covered here. This is the Dashboard where you will spend most of your time while you are a user of YieldNodes. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the layout, the information displayed, and the menu on the left side of the screen.
The first destination for you will be the ‘My Account’ page. You will find this in the menu on the left side of the screen. Click it so we can continue.
Step 5. Filling in your personal information
YieldNodes is a professional and lawful platform. Professionalism is their top concern, right along with security and performance. To ensure all Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws are followed, users are required to complete the following steps in their entirety to use the YieldNodes platform.
Before you complete your information on this page, look at the ‘Email address’ line. Below your email address, you will see the text (Not Verified) (Resend email). Click the (Resend Email) hyperlink and open up your email.
Step 6. Verify your email address
You will receive a simple email from YieldNodes support to verify the email address associated with the account. Click the ‘Verify Email Address’ button located in the email, and it will return you to the YieldNodes Dashboard.
Once returned to YieldNodes, you will find yourself looking at the page above. In order to move forward, click the ‘Go to My Account’ hyperlink in the top left corner of the page.
Step 7. It is time to complete your ‘My Account’ information
Once your email is verified, fill out the necessary information on the My Account page. Full name, date of birth, and address. Your email and phone number will already be filled in from the initial sign up screen. Once you are done, click the ‘Save Changes’ button.
You can see from the screenshot above, the email address is now (Verified), but the phone number says (Not Verified). Don’t worry about your phone number right now; we will complete this in the next step.
Step 8. Setting up Two-Factor Authentication & verifying phone number
Two-Factor Authentication is a way of securing your account more than just with a password. This is a common and effective way to protect your information and capital. You can choose to use either the Google Authenticator App (Recommended) or a standard text message (SMS).
‘Select’ which one you would like to use. If you choose the Authenticator App, there are some additional steps; you can find a walkthrough here. Now it is time to ‘Verify’ your phone number. As you can see from the above image, John Doe’s current number is (Not Verified).
Step 9. Verifying your phone number
A pop-up will appear, pictured above. It will list your phone number and let you know that a text message is being sent to your phone. The message will include a 6-digit code. Input that 6-digit code into the field and click ‘Submit.’
Once you successfully input the text message code, you will be returned to the ‘2FA Settings’ page, where you will see confirmation that you have successfully signed up for Two-Factor authentication, and your cell phone number has been (Verified).
Step 10. Completing Know Your Customer (KYC) verification
Know Your Customer (KYC) is a common practice among most cryptocurrency platforms to protect users and platform owners. YieldNodes maintains a high level of integrity in their processes and requires all users to complete their KYC process.
Three items are needed in order to be approved to use the YieldNodes platform: a signed Risk Disclosure Agreement, government-issued Photo ID, and proof of address.
The Risk Disclosure Agreement might look intimidating, but it is a common, standard agreement for users who participate in cryptocurrency platforms. Please read it in its entirety. Once read, you can print and sign, or you can use Adobe to apply a digital signature. Here is a quick walkthrough on how to digitally sign a PDF document.
Next, you will need to upload a clear, high-definition image of your government-issued Photo ID. A driver’s license, passport, or national ID will suffice. Example:
Lastly, you will need to provide a copy of a bank or utility bill to confirm your address that you submitted on your ‘My Account’ page and should match your ID (if an address is listed). A high-definition screenshot or a PDF should suffice. Example:
After all three items are submitted, you will see the following:
You will see ‘Status: Documents are awaiting confirmation.’ Each document will have a time clock symbol on the right side, indicating that it is in the process of being reviewed. It takes 1–3 business days for KYC documents to be reviewed and approved or rejected.
Once approved, you will receive an email notifying you of your status, and your ‘KYC Documents’ page will look like this:
The status will change to ‘Status: Documents are verified,’ and each item will feature a green checkmark. This indicates all of your documents were reviewed and found to be acceptable to qualify for the platform’s KYC requirements.
Congratulations! You are officially a verified user of YieldNodes.
