How to withdraw funds from your Kraken account on Kraken Classic
This article is for clients using the Kraken Classic interface.
Withdrawal hold
Certain deposits, such as first time ACH purchases, debit or credit card purchases or digital wallet purchases will trigger a temporary (72 hour) withdrawal hold on the account, for security purposes. For enhanced security, debit and credit card purchases using USD may experience the 72 hour lock discussed above on all purchases, not just your first purchase.

    Click Withdraw and use the Search bar to find your preferred currency.
