Creating an individual account

Before you start

You will need the following information in order to create a Bullish account:

  • Email address
  • Nationality
  • Location of residence

During the registration process, you will set up a password and two-factor authentication.


Your password should be something that you will be able to remember, and we recommend a complex combination of alphanumeric characters for a strong password. You will be prompted to update your password every 180 days. 

Two-factor Authentication (2FA)

You can choose between using a WebAuthn passkey or a TOTP Authenticator (for example, Google Authenticator or Authy).

Note: We recommend using Chrome as your browser and a device with the latest software updates.
