What Canadians say about Kraken
I'm Canadian and they make it extremely easy to fund your account with an e-transfer. I've made a few e-wallets and this was the easiest to navigate get help and also helped me feel abit more confident with crypto entirely with the help of these guys here. 👍👍
Great product and overall smooth experience
Based on canadian experience: The consumer app and web interface have no issues so far, surfing cryptos & trading are quite easy; onboarding was quick and KYC was overall smooth. I also find the octopus symbol quite interesting.
Canadian user, very happy with 24/7 support
As a Canadian user, Kraken was a bit behind on making interac transfers available as a funding option, but it was well worth the wait! Long time user that's super happy with the improvements to UX and performance across the board. The new Pro interface is a great tool to use daily.
Very simplistic and fast for buying and selling crypto. They have become an excellent resource of crypto assets.
