Kraken app referral program
Referrals are only available with the Kraken app
To generate a referral link to give your friends, you will have to do so with the Kraken app. Your account must be verified to intermediate level or higher.

Refer your friends to Kraken and you can each get $10 in Bitcoin!*

*There is a maximum referral reward amount of $100 worth of Bitcoin per account. Review full terms and conditions of the Kraken app referral program.
How can I earn referral rewards?
If you are an existing Kraken client with an intermediate level or higher account you can earn referral rewards by inviting friends to join Kraken through your referral link.
If you are a new Kraken client that has not signed up for an account yet, you can earn referral rewards by signing up through a referral link, verifying an Intermediate level account and buying or selling $100 (USD equivalent) in crypto within the first 30 days of sign up via the Kraken app. Additionally, you will earn a referral reward for each friend you successfully refer to Kraken that also buys or sells $100 in crypto within 30 days of sign up and verification. You can earn up to $100 USD in total (your referral reward and any referrals who join through your link).
Am I eligible to receive the referral reward?
You are eligible to receive the referral reward if you live in one of the following locations:
  • US (except Washington and New York State)
  • Canada 
  • Australia
  • Some EU countries
Clients in the United Kingdom cannot use the referral program.
Only new users that sign-up for Kraken, using the Kraken app (not Kraken Pro app), via a referral link are eligible for a referral reward. If you forget to sign up with a referral link, unfortunately you are not eligible. However, you can still earn referral rewards for inviting friends to join Kraken!
