We’re thrilled to announce that Kraken now supports Genshiro (GENS), Picasso (PICA) and OriginTrail (OTP)!
Funding is live. You can add GENS, PICA or OTP to your Kraken account by navigating to Funding, selecting the asset, and hitting Deposit. Please note, trading for these tokens will not be supported.
Not available in the United States and Canada
Clients who contributed to Genshiro, Picasso or OriginTrail’s Parachain Auction on Kraken will automatically receive the rewards in their Kraken account.
Here’s what you should know about the tokens:
Genshiro is a cross-chain DeFi protocol and canary network for the Equilibrium decentralized exchange (DEX). The protocol allows users to borrow and trade cryptocurrencies on margin using a lower minimum collateralization ratio than its sister DEX. GENS is the native token of the protocol which is used to pay for network transaction fees, earn rewards via Kusama-based liquidity pools and vote on decisions affecting the future of the platform.
Picasso is related to Composable Finance, a blockchain project that aims to provide cross-chain DeFi infrastructure and bridging solutions, through the extension of the Inter-blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC) beyond the Cosmos ecosystem. Picasso is the first IBC implementation outside of the Cosmos ecosystem and benefits from the shared security of the Relay Chain and the interoperability of all parachains connected to Kusama or Polkadot. PICA is a utility token used to access the services provided by the platform.
OriginTrail is a Decentralized Knowledge Graph that organizes and verifies assets from both the physical (like art and supply chains) and digital realms (such as blockchain and DeFi). By adapting knowledge graph technology for Web3, OriginTrail enables data linking and authentication for both tangible and digital assets. The token OTP authenticates transactions within the OriginTrail ecosystem.

Will Kraken make more assets available?
Yes! But our policy is to never reveal any details until shortly before launch – including which assets we are considering. All of Kraken’s available tokens can be found here, and all future tokens will be announced on Kraken’s blog and social media profiles. Our client engagement specialists cannot answer any questions about which assets we may be making available in the future.
