Kraken Keeping Quiet
Kraken, the San Francisco-established crypto exchange isn’t just offering these shares to large investors, but also small investors as well. However, the exchange didn’t publically state how they will be utilising these funds. Kraken also didn’t publish their financial report for the year of 2018.
This isn’t the first that that Kraken has tried to attain funds from the public. In 2018 this exchange sought after the funds of clients in hopes to keep their $4 billion valuations as a company. Back then, the minimum amount that could be invested was $100,000.00. Each time the company has been able to accomplish its goal due to being the largest cryptocurrency exchange globally.
It’s speculated that Kraken will be using this money for development purposes for their exchange and new crypto facilities recently opened. Last month, Kraken purchased an undisclosed crypto facility that will be used for one of their future trading startups. Analysts speculate that the $10.2 million will be put towards this new facility.
