Kraken exchange CEO: investors should “look out for themselves” and not rely on exchanges to protect them #NEWS
Earlier this week the San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken scheduled some downtime to upgrade the trading platform’s system.

Don’t get me wrong, Coinbase was a godsend when I first got into crypto, as it is for most fledgling investors. It’s painless to set up, it’s user-friendly, and it offers a variety of payment options. But between the 1.49% fee for bank transfers and its 3.99% fee for debit/credit card payments, you might be […]
Considering you’ve got to pay a network fee every time you want to transfer cryptocurrency, you’d be justified in wanting to avoid excessive exchange fees.
