How to manage your Web3 wallet with Kraken
Trade holds
Purchasing cryptocurrencies with credit cards or via ACH online banking will trigger a trade hold for the transacting user. This will prevent NFT trade activity (purchases, sales and offers) for a period of 72 hours, for enhanced security.
Deposits can be completed via a web3 wallet or ordinary transfer. This article concerns deposits made with a web3 wallet.
