About Kraken

Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrency so that you and the rest of the world can achieve financial freedom and inclusion. In our first decade, Kraken has risen to become one of the largest, most successful and respected crypto exchanges on the planet. 

We are changing the way the world thinks about finance and our range of successful products are playing a critical role in the mainstream adoption of crypto assets.

We attract people who push themselves to improve, are radically transparent and think differently in order to unlock their potential. 

Crypto is a rapidly evolving industry and we’re just getting started. We’re growing fast and you're invited to join the revolution!
