Kraken Reviews for January 2022

Kraken exchange defies competitors’ regulatory concerns with SHIB listing. The move comes in contrast to other digital asset exchanges, such as Robinhood, which have avoided listing altcoins such as SHIB over regulatory concerns. United States-based digital asset exchange Kraken has announced it will begin supporting the viral memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB) as of Nov. 30. There will be a minimum deposit of 373,000 SHIB ($16), and the minimum trading volume is 50,000 SHIB ($2). SHIB will initially be tradeable against the U.S. dollar and euro pairs, however, Kraken Futures and Margin Trading for SHIB won’t be available at launch. Kraken Australia managing director Jonathon Miller told Cointelegraph that the crypto marketplace supports projects with a clear demand for trading, including SHIB. At the time of publishing, SHIB is the 12th-largest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of $25.81 billion. SHIB has surged over 20% in the last 24 hours on the listing news. Miller added, “I wouldn’t describe Kraken as being the place where every single coin is listed, that’s not been what we have been known for.” Kraken is one of the least conservative exchanges with 93 assets on the exchange in total. Meanwhile, Coinbase supports 51 assets, and Robinhood only supports seven. Other exchanges have been hesitant to list the Dogecoin-inspired altcoin over regulatory concerns, despite increasing pressure from their users. On Friday, SHIB surpassed 1 million holders despite trading 50% below its all-time high. On Nov. 10, Robinhood chief operating officer Christine Brown said that the platform’s “strategy is different than a lot of the other players out there who are racing to list as many assets as possible right now.” The petition requesting that Robinhood list the Shiba Inu coin has amassed over half a million signatures. Miller added, “There are certain services that we have that don’t really fit the regulatory mold. So there’s this gray area that the whole industry exists in, and that’s not specific to us.”

Kraken, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, has tentative plans to go public next year, according to CEO Jesse Powell. Powell appeared on a segment on CNBC after Kraken published record-breaking fourth-quarter results, including a surge in trading volumes and new client signups. “The first quarter just completely blew away the entirety of last year,” he said. “We beat last year’s numbers by the end of February.” Regarding a potential stock market debut, Powell said 2022 is a likely target for a new listing: “We’re looking at being able to go public sometime next year. It would probably be a direct listing, similar to Coinbase.”

Typically, outsized orders, when seen by other traders will cause the market to move unfavorably, making it more difficult to fill the order at the desired price. This unfavorable price movement may be avoided in a dark pool. Finally, Kraken also provides a staking service that allows users to earn a return on assets that would be otherwise held and unused by its users.

Kraken has urged BATMTwo ATM owners and operators to change the admin QR code for their ATMs to avoid potential attacks. Kraken Security Labs has said that a “large number” of Bitcoin (BTC) ATMs are vulnerable to hacking, as the administrators never changed the default admin QR code. In a Wednesday blog post, Kraken posted research from its Security Labs team, which found that there are “multiple hardware and software vulnerabilities” in the General Bytes BATMTwo ATM range. “Multiple attack vectors were found through the default administrative QR code, the Android operating software, the ATM management system and even the hardware case of the machine,” the post read. Kraken’s security team stated that if a hacker gets their hands on the administrative code, they can essentially “walk up to an ATM and compromise it,” while also highlighting issues with the BATMTwo’s lack of secure boot mechanisms, as well as “critical vulnerabilities” in the ATM’s management system. However, General Bytes has reportedly already alerted ATM owners to the vulnerabilities: “Kraken Security Labs reported the vulnerabilities to General Bytes on April 20, 2021, they released patches to their backend system (CAS) and alerted their customers, but full fixes for some of the issues may still require hardware revisions.”

Kraken Australia CEO Jonathon Miller described Tuesday’s Bitcoin (BTC) crash as a natural correction after BTC was “dragged up” by the overheated Ether (ETH) and nonfungible token (NFT) markets. “We always see corrections when we get to all-time highs. I think it’s a natural part of the cycle,” said Kraken Australia CEO Jonathon Miller. In its August report, Kraken notes that the supply of Ether on centralized exchanges fell to a three-year low of 12.8% at the start of the month, concluding “the likelihood of supply shock capitulating ETH higher is greater.” Miller noted that Kraken saw “a massive run-up of trading activity” leading into Ethereum’s highly anticipated London upgrade, adding that demand for Ether has sustained since. In addition to the hype surrounding Ethereum upgrades and Ethereum Improvement Proposal 1559 going live, Miller attributes the recent crypto rallies to the mania surrounding NFTs. In its report, Kraken noted that the NFT industry saw an explosion of growth during August, with OpenSea’s daily users gaining 289% and trade volume rising 900%, according to a weekly moving average. “The combination of Bitcoin being [...] dragged up a little bit by Ethereum, Ethereum getting super hot because of all the activity on NFTs, I think there’s a bit of a natural curtailment happening,” he said, adding: “When you’re starting to see Sotheby’s auctions and the numbers going around for NFTs — these are high levels. We always see corrections when we get to all-time highs. I think it’s a natural part of the cycle.” “Bitcoin’s had a big run-up again from a previous dip. It does this, we know that,” he added. Miller also noted the buzz surrounding El Salvador’s Bitcoin Law taking effect among the “heady factors” contributing to Bitcoin’s recent gains, acknowledging that some investors may have planned to sell on the Salvadoran news: “The timing of the El Salvador thing, I don’t think you could ignore it [...] This is a pivotal turning point in terms of the adoption story for Bitcoin.”

Jesse Powell is rethinking Kraken’s plan to go public which is set for late 2022, following the uninspiring performance of Coinbase stock (COIN) since its launch on April 14. Speaking with Fortune on June 11, Powell stated that in light of the performance on Coinbase’s direct public offering, the firm is now considering an initial public offering (IPO) more seriously now, as the firm is looking to avoid potential issues a direct listing presents: Not having lock-ups, having billions of dollars of insiders be able to dump their shares, you know, on day one [...] I think it has a dampening effect on the market.And, you know, the IPO is just a very different process, he added. Kraken began discussing the idea of public listing in March, following Coinbase's plans to pursue a direct listing on the Nasdaq.

Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken has announced a “first-of-its-kind” Parachain Auction Platform enabling clients to participate directly from the exchange. Kraken revealed the new platform will enable users that qualify to pledge support for Kusama projects vying for a Parachain slot by staking Kusama’s KSM tokens. The rewards for contributors who support a winning bid vary and can include referral bonuses, early participation bonuses, and airdrops. Polkadot’s multi-chain ecosystem will use sharded sidechains to process transactions in parallel. These Parachains are acquired in the auction process whereby projects try to outbid each other for the right to use the slot for 48 weeks with KSM tokens. Kusama is the testing and development network often dubbed Polkadot’s “Canary network.” Only 100 Parachain slots are expected to be available, but this may change through protocol governance votes over time.
