Cryptocurrency deposit fees and minimums

Most cryptocurrency deposits are free, and the minimum deposit amounts required are listed below. A few cryptocurrencies are charged an address setup fee or deposit fee. If a deposit is below the required minimum, the funds will not be credited to your account. Exceptions to this are listed below.

Stackable vs unstackable deposit minimums

Stackable: Stackable deposits at this time include ETH, ETC, ETHW, EWT, AVAX, OP, SGB, FLR and all ERC20 tokens. Assets on Polygon, and assets on Arbitrum are also stackable. 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.

Unstackable: 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).

The Address Setup Fee is a one-time fee charged to the first deposit on a newly generated deposit address. ERC-20 tokens use the same single address within your account and thus will only incur the address setup fee once during the initial creation.

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.
