Update: For FLOW unlocking schedule please refer to our updated Support Centre article.
We are pleased to announce that Flow (FLOW) trading will launch Wednesday January 27 at approximately 15:30 UTC.
At launch, only FLOW tokens that have been earned through staking rewards can be traded. Clients who purchased FLOW in the ICO and claimed their tokens through Kraken in October have been earning FLOW rewards and will now be able to trade only these rewards.
Clients can also deposit FLOW rewards earned elsewhere to trade on Kraken.
However, FLOW tokens from the ICO cannot be traded yet, because they are subject to a network holding period of one year during which they are not transferable.
FLOW trading is not available in the US or Canada
FLOW trading is not available for citizens or residents of the US or Canada.
What is Flow (FLOW)?
Flow is a blockchain designed for a new generation of games and digital collectables. Built to be fast, developer-friendly and easy to use, Flow is designed to be attractive to mainstream consumers.
The team behind Flow is Dapper Labs, the company that created the CryptoKitties game on the Ethereum blockchain. In fact, the original inspiration for Flow was to build a platform better suited for games like CryptoKitties, and specifically designed for onboarding many users.
Flow has grown far beyond CryptoKitties, however, and has gathered a list of partners that includes leading brands and game developers like the NBA (the game NBA Top Shots), UFC, Samsung, Warner Music, Ubisoft and many others.

Will Kraken list more assets?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – not even about which assets we are considering. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be listing in the future.
Trade 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 (e.g. stop loss).
Invest with caution
Listing an asset or token for trade is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or participate in the associated network. Do your own research and invest at your own risk.
