The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has introduced new rules for crypto assets in the United Kingdom (UK). Due to the new regulations imposed by the FCA, Kraken’s UK clients will experience changes accessing the Kraken product.
To ensure our UK clients still have the ability to continue using Kraken, we implemented an assessment questionnaire and a self categorisation option to abide by the FCA’s new rules.
The changes outlined below only apply to retail clients residing in the United Kingdom.
- You will see a banner at the top of our website and apps which is needed in order to comply with the FCA regulations.
- Our marketing material, such as emails about services, will include a disclosure to comply with the FCA regulations.
- Our Affiliate and Referral programs will no longer be available to clients residing in the UK.
If you have any questions or concerns, our Support team is available to assist you 24/7/365.
