On Monday, Kraken exchange sent its customers a letter in which it offered them an opportunity to purchase its privileged shares. The period for buying Kraken’s stocks will last from May 20 until June 20.

The community initially took the message to be spam, however, later on Kraken confirmed that the email and the offer are real.

Kraken partners with Bnk to the Future

To make this plan come true, Kraken has struck a partnership with the Bnk to the Future platform. The latter offers registered users to buy privileged shares of the crypto exchange before June 20. The minimum investment amount is $1,000.

Investors are welcome to transfer funds for purchasing through bank cards or bank wire transfers, as well as pay with Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Special terms for investing

In its email, Kraken does not set any special requirements for potential investors. However, the terms set forth by Bnk to the Future are much more rigorous. To invest in Kraken stock, investors must be accredited, have a net worth of at least $1 mln, and their income has to be over $200,000.

However, investors can conduct their own verification by answering a few questions, and this will allow users to get the required investor status.
