Kraken To Start Brave Browser’s BAT Token Along with WAVES Coin Trading This Week


Kraken, one of the major cryptocurrency trading platforms in the United States, has announced on its official blog today that the Basic Attention Token (BAT) and Waves (WAVES) would be added to its platform.

Trading is set to be started at 13:30 UTC on August 22, at the same time that people will be able to buy and sell the two new assets. According to the company, it may take a few minutes before trading is properly started because deposits have to be credited before the assets are added to the client’s account.

A total of eight new trading pairs will be added. The two tokens will be traded against the U. S. dollar (USD), euro (EUR), Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

Kraken has also affirmed on the post that new assets are set to be listed soon, but they were not revealed by the company.

About the New Tokens

The Basic Attention Token (BAT) is an ETH-based cryptocurrency which was created by Brave, the company behind the Brave browser. It was created in order to reward users for taking time to watch ads. Right now, a BAT token is worth $0.18 USD, 0.5% up in the last 24 hours. Its total market cap is around $232 million USD.

Waves (WAVES) is a decentralized platform that enables the development of apps just like Ethereum does. Each WAVES token is worth $1.22 USD, 3.8% down in the last 24 hours. The market cap is around $121 million USD.
