Kraken Launches Leverage Trading for Bitcoin Cash and Ripple Markets

Kraken Launches Margin Trading for BCH PairingsKraken has become the latest cryptocurrency exchange to expand its Bitcoin Cash markets, introducing margin trading for three BCH pairings. Kraken users are now able to trade BCH/XBT using 2x margin, in addition to having access to BCH/USD and BCH/EUR markets with 2x or 3x leverage.

The exchange has also announced support for leveraged XRP trading, introducing 2x and 3x margin for XRP/XBT, and 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x margin for its XRP/USD and XRP/EUR pairings. Despite the introduction of the new markets, BCH and XRP are not supported as collateral currencies on Kraken, meaning that traders will not be able to open leveraged positions against BCH or XRP balances.

The introduction of the margin trading for BCH and XRP brings the number of cryptocurrencies that Kraken supports leveraged trading for to eight, alongside XBT (BTC), ETH, ETC, REP, XMR, and USDT.

The exchange charges a 0.02 percent fee for the opening of a margin position, and further 0.02 percent rollover fees per every four hours that the position is open.

Recent Email From Kraken to Prominent Clients Claims $4 Billion Valuation

Kraken Launches Margin Trading for BCH PairingsEarlier this month, Kraken reportedly issued an email to prominent clients informing them that the exchange is considering a private offering and to conduct a survey regarding opportunities to invest in the company.

The email seeks to emphasize that Kraken holds “significant reserves” and is not in need of financing, rather, insisting that the company is anticipating opportunities for acquisition. The email also reportedly states that the company is considering listing its shares with a valuation of $4 billion, with minimum investments expected to be set at $100,000.

“The transaction process will be done by a 3rd party service, who will run accredited investor checks, facilitate the execution of transaction documents, and the funding of your investment,” the email stated, adding that recipients would have until Dec. 16 to respond to the survey.
