Kraken News

Kraken was one of the first cryptocurrency exchanges ever released and was founded in 2011 by Jesse Powell, a veteran in the digital currency space.

In terms of total trading volume, Kraken was previously one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in operation, but has since fallen down the rankings as other exchanges grew in popularity.

Despite this, Kraken describes itself as the leading exchange for EUR volume and liquidity, With dozens of crypto-crypto trading pairs, and even more fiat-crypto trading pairs, Kraken has a major focus on enabling users in over 190 countries to quickly and easily get started trading cryptocurrencies.

Boasting over 4 million registered users and over $160 billion traded since 2011, Kraken is one of the earliest success stories in the cryptocurrency industry, and has paved the way for other exchanges and blockchain projects since the very beginning.
