As one of the largest and most trusted digital asset platforms globally, we are empowering people to experience the life-changing potential of crypto. Trusted by over 8 million consumer and pro traders, institutions, and authorities worldwide – our unique combination of products, services, and global expertise is helping tip the scales towards mass crypto adoption. But we’re only just getting started. We want to be pioneers in crypto and add value to the everyday lives of billions. Now is not the time to sit on the sidelines. Join us to bring crypto to the world.
Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrency so that you and the rest of the world can achieve financial freedom and inclusion. In our first decade, Kraken has risen to become one of the largest, most successful and respected crypto exchanges on the planet.
In February 2019, Kraken completed the acquisition of Crypto Facilities, allowing Kraken to offer a world-leading, cryptocurrency derivatives trading platform to its clients. A pioneer in the industry, the firm was the first fully regulated entity under the supervision of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority to operate a cryptocurrency MTF and to list futures on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple XRP, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash.
Crypto is a rapidly evolving industry and we’re just getting started. We’re growing fast and you’re invited to join the revolution!
