Can I get custom terms?
Our terms are very competitive in the industry. We noticed that competitors offer unfavourable terms such as:
✘ Discounts on trade fees instead of cash.
✘ Lower payout percentages.
✘ Payout percentages that decrease with time.
✘ Payout periods that expire within a few months.
✘ Regular performance evaluations (if you don't consistently refer a certain number of clients, you get cut out of the program).
✘ Payouts to an exchange account instead of directly to your bank account.
✘ Payouts in altcoins or tokens that you may not want.
In contrast, we keep our terms simple and hassle-free.
Are Kraken Futures fees included in the revenue I earn from referrals?
