Deposit address expiry

Deposit addresses on your account do not expire unless you create more than five of them for the same cryptocurrency.

If/when you generate more than five deposit addresses for a certain cryptocurrency, the oldest deposit address will automatically be set to expire in 7 days.

If an address is set to expire, it will be clearly marked — the address will have the status “expiring in # days”, where “#” indicates the number of days remaining before it expires. We recommend that you stop using deposit addresses that are set to expire as soon as possible.

Note the following:

  • Kraken is not responsible for funds sent to an expired deposit address.
  • You cannot currently choose which deposit addresses will expire, the oldest one is always the first one to expire.
  • An address marked as “Used” is OK to deposit to.
