Industry leading fees across all our products

Whether you’re just getting started on your investing journey or you’re a seasoned crypto trader, you’ll find a Kraken product that fits your needs at a competitive price point you’ll love. Browse the table below to learn more about the fee structure for each of our offerings. 

Kraken Pro fee considerations:

  • Fees are charged on a per-trade basis.
  • Fees are calculated as a percentage of the trade's quote currency volume (by default). Certain pairs allow the fee to be calculated based on the trade's base currency, which can be specified when ordering using the Fee Currency option.
  • User fee volume levels are measured using the equivalent market value of the listed "Fee Volume Currency" at the time of the trade. Note that this currency may be different from the pair's base or quote currency.
  • User fee volume levels are measured and applicable for trades occurring in the last 30 days only.
  • Discount tiers are assessed after every trade, so you get your discounts when you earn them.
  • Our volume-based discounts are designed to be attainable so investors of all sizes are rewarded for their trades.
  • If you’re not a frequent trader but you do big volume, consider our OTC service for a more cost-effective, personal experience.

Low fees for both makers and takers

Almost all of our cryptocurrency pairs follow the same fee schedule, which incentivizes market makers to increase liquidity - meaning it’s easier for you to execute trades at the price you want.

We also offer dark pool trading for all of our ether/fiat and bitcoin/fiat currency pairs. Investors who want their trades to have a smaller effect on the market are generally encouraged to make them through this service.
