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 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.

Stackable vs unstackable deposit minimums
* With Ethereum-based tokens (ETH, ETC, BAT, GNO, MLN, PAXG and REP), deposits below the listed minimum can still be credited to your account by depositing more funds to 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).
† Paxos currently charges a 0.02% fee for all on-chain transactions of PAXG. For any deposit to Kraken this comes in addition to the flat fee we charge. Both your transaction to the deposit address and the transaction to sweep the deposit to our hot wallet will be charged the 0.02% fee by Paxos.
