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.
