I was purchasing bitcoins on Circle for months with an unverified account (a small weekly purchase limit). Loving bitcoin, and getting multiple friends into the ecosystem.
Circle recently put a new requirement on accounts needing my SSN (slightly understandable), a copy of my driver's license, and a selfie. With those 3 documents, if Circle EVER gets hacked, my digital identity will never be safe.
I can't bring bitcoin to my friends saying: "and upload your divers license here for your first $ 100 purchase".
