Kraken is a cryptocurrency exchange and bank, founded in 2011, valued at $11B, as of mid-summer 2022.

The Exchange is one of the earliest cryptocurrency exchanges that are still in operation. Kraken’s CEO and founder Jesse Powell, an alumni of California state university, established the company in 2011 to build a stable and secure exchange.
In September 2013, Kraken was launched, offering Bitcoin, Litecoin, and euro trades initially before going on to add additional currencies and margin trading. Kraken is registered with key regulatory bodies such as FinCEN (US), FINTRAC (Canada), FCA (UK), and AUSTRAC (Australia)


📌 It is the fourth-largest Centralized Crypto Exchange globally, with a ~3.2% share of crypto spot volumes in 2021. Kraken’s current valuation is estimated to be $10 billion, putting it at valuation/revenue multiple of ~22X.

📌 Kraken has many extra features that you won’t find on other easy-to-use exchanges. Kraken offers margin trading, futures trading, staking, OTC service and more.

📌 Trading fees on Kraken pro are lower, with maker fees of 0.16% and taker fees of 0.26%, which reduces based on your 30-Day trading volume {down to 0.00% for makers and 0.10% for takers}.
