Kraken is one of the few exchanges that actually allow US traders to use their site and the rest of the world on the same time on one site. This is one of the reasons that i am writing this post to help my readers find better exchanges to use and also cover the whole world on the same time.
Kraken exchange supports are wide range of fiat trading and BTC trading paired with up to 13 different coins and tokens and euro, usd and CAD for fiat trading. You can do OTC or margin trading on Kraken so you can either do it the quick way or wait out to buy or sell at the price you want to with Kraken.
Kraken have a very small fee compared to a lot of exchanges and it only grow lower with the higher 30 days volume you do with a range of 0.16% to 0% for makers and 0.26% to 0.10% for takers. Tho there is a lot more fee’s depending on stablecoins, dark pool or margin fees. For stable coins it ranges from 0.20% to 0% for both maker and taker and you would need to trade over a million dollars per 30 days to get the 0%. and 10 million for normal trading. For margin fee’s check the image below.
Kraken allow staking rewards, tho only for Tezos at the moment but it want to add Cosmos and Dash in the near future for staking. You can either buy on the site or fund your wallet and go to your spot wallet and choose the coin you want to stake and just let it be and let it sit and earn. Tezos has a yearly 6% staking reward for people staking Tezos on Kraken.
So what you waiting for? Sign up to Kraken exchange and start trading like a mad man or woman, i do not assume your gender here..
