User data security
GMT does everything to protect your data: we use a secure smart contract and a multi-level account security system. However, fraudsters can guess your password or trick you into giving them access to your personal information.
Below you can learn what tools we use to secure your money and how you can do it yourself.
How to secure your crypto assets
Don’t tell anyone your seed phraseSeed phrase is a verification phrase of 12, 18 or 24 words, which is sent to you upon registration of a cryptocurrency wallet. It is used to restore access to the wallet. Never tell anyone your seed phrase!

How to secure a GMT account and a cryptocurrency wallet
Pass two-factor authentication
Authentication is a confirmation that it is you who owns the account. With two-factor authentication, you need to confirm your identity in two ways. This results in data protection being more effective.
How to pass two-factor authentication with the Google Authenticator app:
- Log in to your personal account on the GMT website
- Go to the Profile tab
- Download the app Google Authenticator (Play market, Apple store)
- Scan the QR code from your personal account in the Google Authenticator app
- The app will give you a unique 6-digit code
- Enter the code in the GMT personal account into the 2FA box
Verify the wallet
Verification is needed to confirm that you are the owner of a cryptocurrency wallet and can determine the BTC address to which the mining reward will be distributed.
You can verify your wallet in three ways in your personal account on the GMT website.
- Link the wallet using Wallet Connect – instructions
- Link the wallet using MetaMask – instructions
- Enter a GMT wallet address (on ERC-20 or BEP-20) and a BTC address in your personal account, and then make a transaction of a small amount – instructions
KYC is an identity verification procedure used by banks, exchanges and financial institutions. It is needed to secure monetary and cryptocurrency transactions. It is impossible to buy a token in a GMT personal account without passing KYC.
How to pass KYC:
- Go to your personal account on the GMT website
- Go to the "KYC" tab
- Take a photo or send a scan of your ID
- Take a selfie
- Wait for the results of passing KYC

About fraudsters accounts
GMT protects user accounts from the technical side. But fraudsters usually deceive people with the use of social engineering. They create social media groups on behalf of GMT or pretend to be representatives of GMT in private messages. To protect your money, we've compiled a list of fraudulent accounts.
Make sure you are not subscribed to a fake group. Do not enter into correspondence with its representatives and do not transfer money to them.
We deliberately do not attach a clickable link so that you do not accidentally follow it.
