  • coinzada James (@coinzada) reported

    @krakenfx Down less than 10 minutes but still doesn't make me want to run to trade with you..10 minutes at the wrong time could mean 5-10%.

  • hiifiPuttJattDa Simmer Virk (@hiifiPuttJattDa) reported

    @krakenfx why kraken is down > 500 error

  • YOLO_TheHan 20KBitcoinHanYOLO (@YOLO_TheHan) reported

  • GeraldSinclair9 XRP-Red Pill🔥🚀 🚀 (@GeraldSinclair9) reported

    @krakensupport What ticket. I have contacted you people via chat today. You tied down 20k Euros since 3days. This is not acceptable.

  • TheSaltyJ TheSaltyJ ⚡ (@TheSaltyJ) reported

    @adam3us @WhalePanda @coinbase I myself made the error of buying on coinbase and pay horrendous fees. But it got me into crypto and there I payed my first money to learn something. From then on, I just wire money to @krakenfx (for free) and pay like 0.25% on my BTC purchase. there is no cheaper way.

    And @coinbase @CoinbaseSupport still wont release my BTC, gave a bs response that it'll be available today. Its supposed to be available immediately(CC payment) dipshits. I bet @cz_binance and @Gemini and @krakenfx @kucoincom doesn't have these issues. #Conbase

  • Crypto_Guppy CryptoGuppy (@Crypto_Guppy) reported

    @krakensupport The site/pro interface/api are being very flaky. Getting a lot of errors while trying to place orders.

  • sunnymahe87 sunny87 (@sunnymahe87) reported

    @krakenfx 0 reason to trade on kraken. The trade engine is ridiculously lagging and slow. Order execution is reflected minutes later and u can never be sure if the orders were actually closed or not. the day more margin platforms are approved in the US u guys are going to zero

  • EmirBojic1911 Emir (@EmirBojic1911) reported

    @krakensupport After 30 refreshes, it connected :D I have no issues while your network is not under load, but when there is high volatility it tends to break and slow down, or for example when i try to execute the order, it logs me out (but at least the order is executed)

  • EmirBojic1911 Emir (@EmirBojic1911) reported

    @krakenfx and again "kraken pro" not working, should be called kraken con

  • sju100 Mike Braun (@sju100) reported

    @Forbes @chainalysis Look into @krakenfx and their holding of improper transfers (user error). Numerous people have said responses are vague, “based on value of asset, cannot invest our resources into recovering your funds”. No answer on what value/when they would consider.

  • Kobayas11664032 Kobayashi (@Kobayas11664032) reported

    @TornadoPotatoe2 @MattSpoke @therebuildcon @krakenfx My problem is that I lost whole ******* staking node worth of Eth trusting Matt's bs visions. Never even did I mention that stupid software that you guys unironically promote by calling others their shills and giving them respect by mentioning them as $aion main competitor.

  • TornadoPotatoe2 curlywhirlytornadopotatoe (@TornadoPotatoe2) reported

    @Kobayas11664032 @MattSpoke @therebuildcon @krakenfx What is your problem dude. You do nothing but spend everyday fudding Aion. Stay innyour own project Qnt. You must be terrified of Aion as a competitor.

  • SeanLEE305 SEAN LEE THE DON (@SeanLEE305) reported

    @krakenfx Same issues as last year..this company is another #FyreFestival ..the zoinist at the top know what they are doing.. Hate tonfinally do it.. But @binance has margin trading. Cant wait for the class action suit @krakenfx fx is for f you over

  • moonkiska [kiska] (@moonkiska) reported

    @chuckamus_prime @krakenfx The error would make sense if you used all of your available margin...

  • SeanLEE305 SEAN LEE THE DON (@SeanLEE305) reported

    Submit a ticket... Even your ticket system is click on the dropdown menu and nothing happens.. @krakenfx = fyrefestivalCant make orders...but can xlose positions..cant submit tickets..but money never repay the investors!!! #clowns

  • moonkiska [kiska] (@moonkiska) reported

    @krakenfx Getting an insufficient margin error with no open positions

  • rodValdezjr Rodrigo Valdez Jr. (@rodValdezjr) reported

    @krakenfx Still down...

  • PablooCryptobar Don Pablo Cryptobar (@PablooCryptobar) reported

    @EjSmith67266225 @krakenfx The next BTC sales on Kraken should drop the price bk down to what it actually is.

  • fdefoy Frédéric Defoy (@fdefoy) reported

    @krakenfx HODL mode activated! Just joking... Bitcoing going down... Kranken still closes for maintenance. I'm going to make you eat your *****... Just joking. WOW thats funny! Loosing money is funny hey! YOU ARE UNRELIABLE!

  • KevinMConnell Kevin Connell (@KevinMConnell) reported

    @krakenfx Guys... you really need to get a move on here. Market is down 25%...

  • ReeseRuger Reese (@ReeseRuger) reported

    @KevinMConnell @krakenfx Don't even get me started Kraken has let me down so much with this

  • CoinCards Coincards (@CoinCards) reported

    Our rates are based on @krakenfx spot rates as they serve both the US and CAD markets. As Kraken is down for maintenance, we have had to implement secondary provider for spot pricing. Rates might slightly vary from our normal rates until @krakenfx is back up and we switch back.

  • rolflobker Rolf (@rolflobker) reported

    @JPicL @krakenfx That goes without saying. Nothing will happen when their servers are down, but things will happen the instant they turn trading back on. This means you should not hold a position for this period. too many things can happen in 3-8 hrs

  • auditmeplease Brady Nields (@auditmeplease) reported from Vail, Colorado

    @EllipticHerb @jackson34_a @krakenfx @Forbes This is were I'm torn. USDT provides a function that has more value than USD. Whether its backed or not is the problem but it seems to be valuable enough for the majority of people to overlook this qualification. If it works people use it. ...until it stops working.

  • calvincs Calvincs (@calvincs) reported

    @haydentiff @Crypto__Daz @Bitstamp @krakenfx @bitbank_inc LinkedIn :-p. But honestly, having had setup a validator and rippled server in the past/current, it's not difficult and any IT admin could do it. No excuses really. I could see how individuals could have issues ($$/lack admin knowledge), but not exchanges...

  • haydentiff Tiffany Hayden (@haydentiff) reported

    @NicklausScheetz @Bitstamp @krakenfx @bitbank_inc This is the problem with not having validators on the network with customers depending on them. I don’t think we’d do well if Ripple disabled their validators. Other validators don’t operate with a sense of urgency because they don’t have reason to. There is nothing to lose.

  • Investor103 Investor10 (@Investor103) reported

    @letitgrow12 @ForestWiild @MArsene4 @binance @cz_binance @krakenfx @Poloniex @kucoincom @OKEx @HuobiGlobal @bitfinex @MattSpoke @kesemfr @JRegenor I have no problem with you mate but this "wildforest" pal of yours is getting annoying. I hope they get their stuff right with this project.

  • Capintxu Capi (@Capintxu) reported

    @SalsaTekila @SerendipityXBT I had a similar case with @krakenfx. Not exactly the same issue but at the end of the day it was a market stop loss not getting filled. I lost around 2K and kraken just offered $700 in fees. Really unhappy at the time.Just another proof we need more regulation in the crypto world

  • nmeofdst8vM660 Reminding you to buy Bitcoin ⚡️ (@nmeofdst8vM660) reported

    I just initiated a withdraw from @krakenfx to a P2PKH address, funds are already confirmed and on my wallet. Total time from confirming the withdraw + tx time and being able to spend the funds from the new wallet, under 10mins. Let me know again when #bitcoin is slow and expensiv

  • OhIsDatZo Paul van Geldrop (@OhIsDatZo) reported

    @krakensupport The offer is appreciated, but I doubt there’s much to be done. The constant lack of margin funding, the poor performance on high volumes, the lack of combined orders such as a limit/stop-loss in one.. These are basics that shouldn’t exist as problems on a trading platform.

  • berengerdcl Don't ask (@berengerdcl) reported

    @krakensupport @OhIsDatZo I think the issue is linked to the lack of legitimacy and professionalism of Kraken and its CEO. It's kind of you to offer to help but there is nothing you can do about it.

  • tJustinAZ tJustinAZ (@tJustinAZ) reported

    @krakenfx Wow. @krakenfx is turning into a “real” financial institution. They have down times now. How #OldSchool. There’s this thing called #thecloud and you can run multiple instances: 7/24. Check it out!

  • ilfranzis Francesco Fanelli (@ilfranzis) reported

    @IamCryptoWolf @krakensupport It seems to be a problem with request coming from Italy. I am able to access the page using a VPN of another country.

  • ilfranzis Francesco Fanelli (@ilfranzis) reported

    @krakenfx site is down

  • sju100 Mike Braun (@sju100) reported

    @jespow @krakenfx @Forbes Agreed - why I asked and didn’t presume. 2148738(first to admit there was user error) Failure to show act of good faith, understanding and willingness to comply with customer on matter related to funds tho. And, I’m reluctantly moving large 5figures your way this week

  • TuscanyPleinAir Tuscany Plein Air (@TuscanyPleinAir) reported

    @AlexVanderbist @krakenfx Just encountered a problem myself.

  • CurtisOrion Curtis (@CurtisOrion) reported

    Well, I'd like to buy $ZEC but @krakenfx is down apparently. Dope shit.

  • CurtisOrion Curtis (@CurtisOrion) reported

    Hmm.... @krakenfx is down. I don't remember the last time this happened. Oh wait.... yes I do lol

  • ThaWizza Kevin Johnson (@ThaWizza) reported


  • MikeSpies904 EtzioSchmetzio (@MikeSpies904) reported

    @krakenfx These website slowdowns need to be solved! everytime BTC starts to breakout your site is having problems. Cant have this anymore!

  • SeanLEE305 SEAN LEE THE DON (@SeanLEE305) reported

    @krakenfx new year same problems.. I sware @krakenfx you are all getting class actioned to hell one day. You young punks stealing ppls hard earned.. If you cant logon or make orders... You shouldnt be in business! Youre manipulating your system. #Scamming #EveryYearSameShit

  • GiovanniPickle GiovanniPickle (@GiovanniPickle) reported

    @krakenfx going in to cloud flare error mode 🤯

  • hiifiPuttJattDa Simmer Virk (@hiifiPuttJattDa) reported

    @krakensupport anybody else facing issues with kraken.. i cant trade.. system is slow..

  • Sinkas5 Sinkas (@Sinkas5) reported

    @krakenfx Second times my orders don't execute within a month. Fix your shitty servers.

  • innocoin Innocoin (@innocoin) reported

    @krakenfx It's the same problem now processor doesn't like opening your site at the moment, and even the tab crashes, cannot close it.

  • jespow Jesse Powell (@jespow) reported

    @sju100 @krakenfx @Forbes No. Honest question and there wasn't anything unprofessional about it. Any asset could be a financial instrument and not all financial instruments are securities. Regulation varies widely among asset classes and geos. If you have a customer service issue, please share ticket #.

  • otsukimicrypto Crypto Otsukimi (@otsukimicrypto) reported

    @krakenfx if you would actually let me execute ANY of my trades, you wouldn’t be a certifiably garbage exchange. Always getting errors that your customer service people can’t explain to me then just abandon me in the chat rooms.

  • Bonez0r1 Bonez0r (@Bonez0r1) reported

    @LostGains @AbbyPowell18 @krakenfx @Forbes Yep. Always report scams. Drop down menu --> Report tweet --> It's suspicious or spam --> Includes a link to a potentially harmful, malicious or phishing site.

  • I_nature_ADA Aditya M (@I_nature_ADA) reported

    @krakenfx Hey guys I use Kraken almost 90% for trading, I do not know if it is working as per the design or not. But I think there is an issue (which might not be as well). Please message me because I do not think this can be discussed openly.

  • Crypto_Core Nick Core 🏆 (@Crypto_Core) reported

    @krakensupport I did. I got an automated response that didn’t address the issue

  • CryptoCho1 CryptoCho (@CryptoCho1) reported

    @ssabatino84 @BigCheds @krakenfx I agree. This is an issue @krakenfx must fix by getting more liquidity on their exchange and I think in the very near future we will see this issue be resolved.

  • jo_suriel Jorge Suriel (@jo_suriel) reported

    @krakensupport Every time I try to sign up it says "Internal Error" with no error code

  • Lefonce 🍀ᒪᕮᖴOᑎᑕᕮ® 🇮🇹 (@Lefonce) reported

    @krakensupport charts not working again... too much lagging $xtz #tezos

  • brett_colbert Brett Colbert (@brett_colbert) reported

    @eagle4942 @CharlesSchwab Gotta say that when I had access issues on @krakenfx (crypto) they gave me free trading credits to make up for the problem.
