Circle Internet Financial isn’t the only cryptocurrency-related company introducing a mobile application this week. Cryptocurrency exchange platform Kraken is following suit by introducing their own application for iOS.
Launched this weekend on the iTunes App Store, the application provides the user with a wealth of information when it comes to cryptocurrency markers (bitcoin being among the most popular).
Users are able to add their own Kraken API key to view their balances, positions, and orders quickly. In addition, all of the market data a trader would come to expect is also available (charts, 24-hour high/low, today’s open/close, volume, and more.
A nifty feature is also included that will allow users to convert amounts between currency pairs (such as USD-to-BTC, and so forth). The latest bitcoin news is also available (which is pretty important, really).
But there’s something noticeably missing from the app. Kraken is, after all, an exchange. So some users may be surprised to find that trading is not supported by the application — at least for now.
Kraken has asked users to submit feedback if they would like mobile trading capabilities, and let’s be honest, which trader wouldn’t?
If you would like more information on the application, or would like to download it to your iOS device, you can view it here on the App Store.
