“Clients need a cryptocurrency platform that combines professional-grade performance with unbeatable security. Kraken Pro was built from the ground up to become the destination of choice for advanced traders.”

Kraken has announced the public launch of Kraken Pro, a web platform that encompasses a full suite of advanced trading tools and unified access to spot trading, margin trading, staking, and portfolio management.

Designed for advanced traders, Kraken Pro is built on top of the same institutional-grade trading infrastructure and security, including a capable matching engine and low latency connectivity in order to handle peak demand.

“Professional-grade performance with unbeatable security”

David Ripley, Chief Operating Officer and incoming CEO at Kraken, said. “Over our 11-year history, Kraken has always built products around clients’ needs, with a focus on intuitive UIs. With the launch of Kraken Pro, that same client-first mindset brings a best-in-class trading platform to advanced traders.”

Kraken Pro boasts a trading interface packed with trade execution, advanced order management and analysis tools. The web platform efficiently integrates trade, investment, and portfolio data.

The crypto exchange allows users to trade more than 210 crypto assets through Kraken Pro. The platform will continue to integrate new features and products after launch and clients are welcome to request specific additions, the firm said.

Kraken’s client base trades more than 200 digital assets and 8 different fiat currencies, including GBP, EUR, USD, CAD, JPY, CHF, AUD, and AED.

First crypto company to have ever conducted a Proof of Reserves audit

Staff amounts to more than 2,000 people after having been founded in 2011 as one of the first exchanges to offer spot trading with margin, parachain auctions, staking, regulated derivatives, and index services. The firm caters to over 9 million traders and institutions around the world and offers professional, round-the-clock online support.

At a time of doubt within the crypto ecosystem, particularly about centralized exchanges, Kraken has been ahead of its time, having been the first company to have ever conducted a Proof of Reserves audit, having committed to undergoing Proof of Reserves on a regular basis.

Kraken markets can be monitored and traded through the Kraken Pro iOS and Android apps, and through the Cryptowatch iOS, Android, and Desktop apps.

The company is backed by investors including Tribe Capital, SkyBridge, Hummingbird Ventures, Blockchain Capital, Digital Currency Group, among others.
