We’re thrilled to announce that Kraken now supports Astar (ASTR)!
Funding and Trading
Funding is live, and trading will begin shortly. Keep an eye on the status page for updates.
You can add ASTR to your Kraken account by navigating to Funding, selecting the asset, and hitting Deposit. Deposits require 25 confirmations (typically 2 minutes).
ASTR will be tradable against USD and EUR, with a price precision of 3 decimal places.
Note: Trading is not available to residents of the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan.
What is Astar?
Astar Network is a Polkadot-based, multi-chain decentralized application (dApp) hub that supports the Ethereum Virtual Machine, WebAssembly and Layer 2 protocols. Astar’s feature-rich design aims to make it the go-to ecosystem for smart contracts on Polkadot.
Which services will be available for ASTR?
Kraken and Kraken Terminal will be available for ASTR. Kraken Futures and Margin Trading won’t be available at launch.
Will Kraken list more assets?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – not even which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s listed tokens are available on our website, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be listing in the future.
Trade and invest with caution
Limit orders are recommended when trading starts since the markets may be illiquid initially. Be extremely careful with market orders and orders that trigger market orders…
