Kraken Crypto Exchange Integrates Swiss Franc (CHF) to Trade Against BTC And ETH


Kraken crypto exchange has expanded its BTC and ETH fiat trading pair options after adding the Swiss Franc (CHF) to the existing portfolio. The exchange partnered with Frick, a bank based in Liechtenstein, to launch the CHF within its platform.

The U.S headquartered digital exchange is among the earliest entrants in the market having been launched back in 2011. So far, a number of cryptocurrencies ranging from Bitcoin to tokens like XRP can be traded on the exchange against fiat currencies. Prior to the CHF integration, acceptable fiat denominations within Kraken’s network included; Japanese Yen (JPY), British Pound Sterling, Euro, Canadian dollar and the U.S dollar.

A blog post by Kraken on 5th December highlighted that the CHF trading would commence a day after the announcement. Initially, the CHF will be tradeable against Ether (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC) but plans to add more options for the Swiss currency are under consideration.

Just recently, Kraken made a partnership move that would enable real-time deposits and withdrawals at zero fees for its U.S clientele. The firm joined Silvergate Exchange Network, a product of Silvergate Bank, which now facilitates the U.S dollar deposits and withdrawals against Kraken’s crypto options. Besides this milestone, Kraken had earlier released its mobile application to enhance the user experience for Futures trading.

Kraken enjoys a top 10 position in daily transactional volume according to stats from coin360. The platform recorded around $103 million in the course of the last 24 hours. Swiss Franc (CHF) will probably increase this liquidity and push the veteran exchange to new records in daily volumes.
