Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrency so that you and the rest of the world can achieve financial freedom and inclusion.
Recognizing the importance of Bitcoin from the onset, and understanding that the exchange is the most critical part of the cryptocurrency ecosystem, Jesse Powell founded Kraken to give people the means to quickly and securely invest in the space. Since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds with hundreds of employees spanning the globe. We’re a diverse group of thinkers and doers that are dedicated to making cryptocurrency available and accessible to the world and enabling people from all walks of life to invest in their independence.
Whether you’re an advanced trader or a crypto-beginner, Kraken gives you the power to chart your own financial course. Our exchange has an ever-growing number of cryptocurrency pairs for you to invest in and a slew of tools and features for you to leverage as you grow your portfolio.
