Funding and Trading

You can add these tokens to your Kraken account by navigating to Funding, selecting the asset, and hitting Deposit.
Only provide a valid Stacks (STX) address on the Stacks network, otherwise you may lose funds. The memo displayed MUST be included in the deposit you send to the provided address. Failure to do so will lead to significant delay in funds being credited to your account, and you will need to contact our support team. Learn more.

Here’s what you need to know about the asset:
Stacks (STX) is a blockchain protocol designed to extend the scalability and functionality of the Bitcoin network. The protocol allows developers to create and deploy decentralized applications (dApps), NFTs and smart contracts that leverage Bitcoin’s robust security and decentralization. STX is the native token of the protocol used to execute smart contracts, deploy dApps, pay transaction fees and reward miners and node operators for securing the network.
Will Kraken make more assets available?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – including which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s available tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be making available in the future.
