Why use Kraken?
Kraken is one of the oldest, most secure cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. We were founded in 2011 in the US and now serve over ten million clients globally, including tens of thousands of Aussies.
In Australia, we maintain local operations as a registered Digital Currency Exchange Provider (DCE) with AUSTRAC (‘Bit Trade Pty Ltd.’, ABN 42 163 237 634 & ACN 163 237 634, source). Bit Trade was Australia's first successful crypto exchange and was acquired by Kraken in 2020.
