Differences between Kraken Pro and Cryptowatch

 

It’s important to note that Kraken Pro and Cryptowatch are two separate platforms. While Kraken Pro is available to all users with a Kraken account, Cryptowatch is a premium subscription service. Whereas Kraken Pro only tracks and supports trading for Kraken markets, Cryptowatch tracks markets across 20+ exchanges and supports trading on 7 separate exchanges.

Kraken users interested in Cryptowatch will need to create a Cryptowatch account if they wish to utilize the full functionality of the platform. As detailed below, features vary depending on the account type.
