In addition to JPY and Crypto denominated pairs, you can now trade our USD and EUR order books - some of the most widely traded pairs in the world.
From January 9th 2023, Japanese clients can no longer deposit funds into their Kraken accounts. Trading functionality will remain so that you can convert your balance to the asset of your choice.
Kraken has decided to cease its operations in Japan and deregister from the Financial Services Agency (JFSA) as of January 31, 2023.
In accordance with guidance from the JFSA, all affected Kraken clients have until January 31, 2023 to withdraw their cash and crypto holdings from Kraken’s platform. You may choose to either withdraw your crypto holdings to an external wallet or liquidate your portfolio and withdraw your JPY to a domestic bank account.
