To open a Personal account with Pro limits (or upgrade your existing Starter or Intermediate account):
1. Please create a personal account at www.kraken.com, if you have not done so already.
2. Ensure you secure your account by adding at least one form of Sign-In Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).
3. Navigate to your username in the upper right corner of the page, and then select “Get Verified”
4. You will need to verify your account for intermediate limits as a first step. Once your account is verified for intermediate limits, you will have the option to verify your account for Pro limits.
