Why are there "duplicate" entries for deposits & withdrawals?

For compliance-related reasons, the ledger includes two entries for every deposit and withdrawal.

Note: only the second entries will have a TXID field.

Deposits

Cryptocurrency deposits

  • 1st entry: when you broadcast your deposit to the blockchain.
  • 2nd entry: when the deposit is credited to your Kraken account after meeting the minimum number of confirmations.

Fiat deposits

  • 1st entry: when the deposit reaches our banking partner.
  • 2nd entry: when the deposit is credited to your Kraken account.

Withdrawals

Cryptocurrency withdrawals

  • 1st entry: when you make the withdrawal request.
  • 2nd entry: when the withdrawal is broadcasted to the blockchain by us.

Fiat withdrawals

  • 1st entry: when you make the withdrawal request.
  • 2nd entry: when the withdrawal is marked from "Sending" to "Success".
    • This is not the same date as when you actually received the withdrawal.
    • There's no way for us to tell if/when you received a withdrawal. 
    • EUR and USD withdrawals are automatically marked as "Success" after two weeks from the request date.
    • CAD withdrawals take much longer to be marked as "Success".
