Announcements | July 7, 2015 By:

Kraken announced that it is expanding its services to Canada.

“We see a lot of opportunity for Kraken in Canada and we’re counting on Vogogo’s expertise in risk management and payment processing to make it possible for Canadians to move their dollars safely and efficiently to and from Kraken,” said Kraken CEO Jesse Powell.

Beyond Canada, Kraken hopes to soon expand into United States, which has garnered a reputation for being a tough place for bitcoin companies to find banking partners, something Kraken knows all too well.

Kraken is a San Francisco-based Bitcoin exchange.
