We’re thrilled to announce that Kraken now supports the Avalanche (AVAX) C-Chain!
Funding and Trading
Funding is live, and trading will begin Tuesday, December 21 — at which point Kraken will enable order entry and execution. Keep an eye on the status page for updates.
You can add AVAX to your Kraken account by navigating to Funding, selecting the asset, and hitting Deposit. Deposits require 20 confirmations (typically one minute).
AVAX will be tradable against USD and EUR, with a price precision of 2 decimal places.
What is Avalanche?
Avalanche is a distributed system that achieves scalability through the use of three interoperable blockchains and a Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. It aims to serve as the foundation for an expansive ecosystem of decentralized applications (dApps).
Which services will be available for AVAX?
Kraken and Kraken Terminal will be available for AVAX. 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…
