Here’s what you need to know about the assets:

NEAR Protocol (NEAR) is a cloud-based computing platform for Web3 and decentralized applications (dApps). The protocol’s community-operated cloud infrastructure and novel sharding architecture allow developers to create interoperable and scalable applications. NEAR is the native token of the platform which is used to pay for network transaction fees and earn rewards for helping secure the protocol via staking.

Sei Network (SEI) is a Layer 1 blockchain developed on Cosmos that aims to provide a next-generation DeFi infrastructure. Utilizing Centralized Order Books (CLOB), Sei Network facilitates dApp integration and access to liquidity within the Cosmos ecosystem. SEI validators can choose to accept other Comos ecosystem approved tokens for gas payment based on network governance. The SEI token allows users to pay for gas fees and also functions as the protocol’s governance token.

Before you start, what you should know:

In order to trade using margin, you will need to hold at least one collateral currency.

Margin trading incurs additional fees for opening, closing and holding a position. Learn more about the different rates and fees.

Will Kraken offer more pairs on margin?

Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details before launch – not even which pairs we are considering. All of Kraken’s listed margin pairs are available on our website. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which pairs we may be listing in the future. 

Trade with caution

There is no guarantee that a limit order will execute. There is no guarantee of margin pool availability at all times. There is also no guarantee of a market order executing at a certain price. The availability and liquidity of the particular digital asset will impact these types of orders.
