Kraken's app is well-designed and offers tools for both beginners as well as advanced tools for more experienced traders.
Kraken has an “Instant Buy” option, where users can purchase crypto in seconds with their card or from funds in their fiat wallet. Instant Buy, while convenient, incurs high fees.
