Cryptocurrency deposit fees and minimums

There is a minimum requirement for each deposit, as well as an address setup fee and/or deposit fee for some cryptocurrencies — though most cryptocurrencies are completely free to deposit.

Below is a summary of the minimums and fees. If a deposit is below the required minimum, the funds will not be credited to your account.

Note: These values can change without notice and may not always be current. Please login to your Kraken account to see the most current information listed on each deposit page.

The Address Setup Fee is a one-time fee charged to the first deposit to a newly generated deposit address.

Stackable vs unstackable deposit minimums

*With Ethereum-based tokens (ETH, ETC, REP, MLN, and GNO), deposits below the listed minimum can still be credited to your account by depositing more funds into the same deposit address as the below-minimum deposit.

  • The entire balance of that address will be credited to your account in a single, combined deposit when the balance reaches the deposit minimum.
  • There is no time limit to reach the deposit minimum.

For all other cryptocurrencies, deposits below the minimum amount will unfortunately not be credited to your account even if more funds are sent (i.e. the minimum is not stackable).
