*- Please note that the promotion, originally scheduled to take place through the month of February, has now been extended through April.
To help ring in the New Year, our funding partner Etana Custody is waiving all deposit wire fees for the month of February.
This means that when you fund your Kraken account in USD, EUR, CAD, GBP, or JPY with Etana, it will be completely free!
If this wasn’t enough good news, all custody fees charged by Etana (previously 0.125%) have been waived indefinitely.
About Etana Custody
Etana Custody is a global custody service and funding provider with offices in New Zealand, USA, Singapore, Japan, and Europe. It works with Tier 1 banks around the world.
It also offers currency conversion services, thereby allowing Kraken clients to deposit local fiat and have it exchanged into any of the currencies that we currently accept for trading.
Kraken partnered with Etana Custody in early 2019, launching the new funding method publicly to clients in July 2019.
The Fine Print
Please note that deposit and withdrawal minimums will remain the same.
