Frequently Asked Questions
1,000 KFEE = 10 USD worth of trading fees on the Kraken exchange.
The trade does not need to involve USD.
If you have a KFEE balance, it is automatically used to pay for any trading fees incurred.
KFEE essentially allows you to trade fee-free up to a certain volume.
For example, a trade worth 3,846 USD executed with a 0.26% fee would cost 10 USD. Instead of paying that 10 USD from your USD balance, 1,000 KFEE would be deducted from your KFEE balance
The volume of fee-free trading for a fixed amount of KFEE depends on the percentage of trading fees. Below are some examples:
|Fee percentage||Fee-free trade volume per 1,000 KFEE|
|Highest taker fee (0.26%)||3,846 USD|
|Highest maker fee (0.16%)||6,250 USD|
|Lowest taker fee (0.10%)||10,000 USD|
|Lowest maker fee (0.02%)||50,000 USD|
*Note: Maker fees can actually go as low as 0%, but in that situation KFEE wouldn't need to be used.
*Availability of margin trading services is subject to certain limitations and eligibility criteria.
