Once submitted for verification details cannot be changed.

You are now verified for making FIAT transactions.

Before making any FIAT transactions, we recommend enabling the 2FA (two-factor authentication), for security reasons.

4. Secure Your Account Kraken Account By Setting 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Wondering What 2FA Is?

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type (subset) of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming a user’s claimed identity by utilizing a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are.

An excellent example of two-factor authentication is the withdrawing of money from an ATM; only the correct combination of a bank card (something that the user possesses) and a PIN (personal identification number, something that the user knows) allows the transaction to be carried out.

In the case of exchanges what the user knows are the login details username and password and what he possesses is the 2nd factor for the authentication which is a code. The code can be either received through SMS on users personal mobile phone or found in an application like Google Authenticator or Authy.

So, from your homepage, https://www.kraken.com/u/trade click on your account in the top right corner and select Security.

Click on the Two-factor-authentication tab.

There are multiple operations for which you can set 2FA.

We recommend enabling 2FA for all of them. Click on setup, choose your preferred method and configure it.

Either manually enter the key in the Google Authenticator app or scan the QR code. Either way, please write down for Safekeeping the OTP ( one time password for Google Authenticator ) so that in the event you need to reset it you have this ( please note that in the image it is blurred for safety reasons. Please consider this as a master key. Without it, you cannot reset in case it whoever.

Once you do this scan or manual input a single time, a one time password will be generated, that you need to write/copy in the One-time password empty field.

Now you should be good to go so whenever you log in to your account or perform any other operations you just open the Google Authenticator app and insert the one time password given shown there.

More details on how to use Google Authenticator here.

5. Funding Your Kraken Account

Now that you are safe, the next step is to fund your Kraken account from your bank account.

Click the Funding tab and select your preferred FIAT currency as per image below.

Click on the preferred method.

Read carefully the details so that you are sure you follow the correct path for deposits.

Once you have made the bank transfer according to the exact specifications of the site, you will need to wait few working days until Fiat reaches your Kraken account.

When money is in, you will get a notification email like the one in the screenshot below.

You are now ready to buy your first coin.

You can log in again to your account and you will see the available funds in the deposit section, as well as in the top left corner of the page.

Another way to see your current balance is on the homepage, under the Trade tab https://www.kraken.com/u/trade.

Having funds in the account, you can now buy your favorite coin.

6. Start Trading Ethereum Classic (ETC) On Kraken

Below you can find the step by step process to buy your first coin. It’s rather straightforward, but you need to be careful with a few aspects.

How To Make Your First Trade On Kraken?

Select the correct symbol for the coin you need to buy Choose the right pair (e.g. XBT/USD or XBT/EUR if your account is funded with Euro) Input the right amount you want to spend Click New order tab Choose the Simple trade option for starters Choose between the Amount of Coin to buy or the amount of Fiat to spend Choose the fixed price you are willing to spend Verify the total Place the order

What Is The Difference Between Market/Limit?

Market stands for the market price, mainly the asking price of that moment on the exchange and Limit is a fixed price which you are willing to offer for that coin.

Let me put it in simpler words it’s like you want to buy a used car and you go to a website and see different offers for the same model. You can either choose to buy it from whoever wants to sell it first, irrespective of the price they ask. Or, you have in mind a budget you are willing to spend and base the purchase on this, choosing an offer or negotiating with an owner so that you purchase at the maximum price you are willing to pay.

There might be cases in which you decide to purchase at the market price to do it faster or for other reasons. But most of the cases we suggest you go for the limit option and maybe wait a bit so that your order gets filled.

Once you placed an order, you need to check your Orders to see if this is still open or Closed ( meaning coins were purchased)

To do this, click the Orders tab and see New&Open Orders (in which you’ll find orders not filled yet ) and Closed orders ( orders filled or the ones you deleted).

Once the order is closed, you have just bought your first coin!

Congratulations! You bought your first Ethereum Classic (ETC) on Kraken.
