Frequently asked questions

How do I get KFEE?
We will occasionally offer KFEE to our clients for various reasons.
What is KFEE worth?
1,000 KFEE = 10 USD worth of trading fees on the Kraken exchange.
The trade does not need to involve USD.
How does KFEE work?
If you have a KFEE balance, it is automatically used to pay for any trading fees incurred. KFEE essentially allows you to trade fee-free up to a certain volume.For example, a trade worth 3,846 USD executed with a 0.26% fee would cost 10 USD. Instead of paying that 10 USD from your USD balance, 1,000 KFEE would be deducted from your KFEE balance.
How do I redeem a KFEE voucher?
To redeem a KFEE voucher which has been offered to you, follow these steps:
  1. 3
    Hit the Redeem a voucher button in the top-right corner
  2. 4
    Enter your Voucher code and click Redeem!
Do you have a voucher and the Redeem button is not appearing?
If you receive a voucher by email, you must open the voucher link and then redeem the code on the same device. Please open the email and click on the link using the device that you would typically use Kraken on, rather than opening the email on one device and then going on Kraken with a different device.
How much fee-free trading can I do?
The volume of fee-free trading for a fixed amount of KFEE depends on the percentage of trading fees. Below are some examples:
Fee percentage
Fee-free trade volume per 1,000 KFEE
Highest taker fee (0.40%)
2,500 USD
Highest maker fee (0.25%)
4,000 USD
Lowest taker fee (0.10%)
10,000 USD
Lowest maker fee (0.02%)
50,000 USD
*Note: Maker fees can actually go as low as 0%, but in that situation KFEE wouldn't need to be used.
