Kraken has had many technical issues and downtimes in the past. In the last months this has improved and trading was pretty stable. The UI looks outdated but it works. All trading features, including margin trading are available.

My experience with the Kraken support is pretty positive. I had an issue with a bank transfer (wrong reference) and the support was very helpful and solved the issue within 3 days.

Did everything work at first until a deposit from Cryptos (Aragon) was not credited. All help pages searched through again, everything was done correctly, so written to support. This then held me out for 1.5 months. One is overloaded. Then the answer:
Aragon had a log update. However, kraken did not notice the update and therefore did not write anything about it in their notes on deposits. The process of "finding these cryptos would allegedly be too time-consuming", "they are very sorry", but the money is gone. Kraken has the coins worth 500 € in her wallet and is now keeping the story to an end. I thought a stock market shouldn't make it that easy and that's a NoGo.

Hat auch zunächst alles funktioniert, bis dann eine Einzahlung von Cryptos (Aragon) nicht gutgeschrieben wurde. Nochmal alle Hilfeseiten durchgeforstet, alles richtig gemacht, also an den Support geschrieben. Dieser hat mich dann erstmal 1,5 Monate hingehalten. Man sei überlastet. Dann die Antwort:
Aragon hatte ein Protokollupdate. Das mit dem Update hat kraken aber nicht mitbekommen und deshalb auch bei ihren Hinweisen für Einzahlungen nichts dazu geschrieben. Der Vorgang "diese Cryptos nun zu finden wäre angeblich zu aufwendig", "es tut ihnen sehr leid", aber das Geld ist weg. Kraken hat die Coins im Wert von 500€ in ihrer Wallet und behält die nun einfach, Geschichte zu Ende. Ich denkte so einfach darf es sich eine Börse nicht machen und das ist ein NoGo.

Kraken was the first exchange I signed up to, but I never actually got to buy anything because it's very badly designed.
It also has had some big performance issues within peak times, e.g. around the time of the Bitcoin all-time-high last December. The situation has improved now, but this might just be down to decreased trading volume...

5/5 - support team

4/5 - new layout and design

Bonus - API and it works!

It's a long fight but they have got great support army. Guess half of their objective is already accomplished!

Despite their struggles in peak times and the confusing interface, Kraken still is my favorite bitcoin exchange offering the best liquidity in the BTC/EUR market. However, I completely understand that for newcomers there are way better portals.

For Germans the best option. Working with Fidor Bank will transfer Fiat Money in minutes. The surface of Kraken is getting used to and not in German. Nevertheless, the best option for me and my friends.

Für Deutsche die beste Option. Durch das Zusammenarbeiten mit der Fidor Bank wird Fiat Money in Minuten transferiert. Die Oberfläche von Kraken ist allerdings gewöhnungsbedürftig und nicht auf deutsch. Für mich und meine Freunde trotzdem die beste Option.

Interesting platform, verification isn't fast but liquidity and support makes up for it.
